  1. Martin Scorcese's Kundun, set in Tibet was actuallly filmed in Morocco. Lots of awesome matte painting shots in that movie http://www.vfxhq.com/1997/kundun.html There were lots of awesome matte shots in Scorcese's Gangs of New York too. The ending in particular was beautiful sequence of animated matte paintings of New York's Manhattan, from the 1860's to its pre 911 city scape.

    Maxwell 5.1 Released

    Maxwell's material setup is very nice and it gives superb results even if it is a bit slow.

    micropolygon vs physically renderer - Houdini

    Please Carlosan, not "Paste" rather; "Paste as plain text". thx Because with raytracing mantra needs to have access to information about other objects in the scene, not just the object that is within the current renderbucket. Delayed load micro polygon rendering on the other hand does not require geometry to be aware of other geometry in the scene. Often if you want to give the impression of reflections with delayed loads you use environment maps in the shader. Which will not give you self-reflection, but will give you a lot of the shading you are looking for. So raytracing defeats one of the purposes of using delayed loads -> the objects are kept in memory rather than being thrown out when no longer required by the current bucket.

    Good art books

    haha we have the exact same comic book tastes. Don't forget Jim Steranko, who started inking Nick Fury Agent of Shield for Jack, and then eventually took it over. I loved his work https://www.amazon.com/Nick-Fury-Agent-S-H-I-L-D/dp/0785107479 If I hadn't been shamed into selling my comic collection at 14 by my mother and two older sisters I'd be worth $30 million right now. And I bought them all for $.02 each used at the old Fraser Book Bin in Vancouver. Stupid. When I told them that I wanted to move to NY City and become a comic book artist they all cried out with derision. Right. The guy who created Wolverine was paid $13 million USD 20 years ago for the comic rights.

    Unreal Engine 5 revealed

    It'll be free, it'll be one single version that's free up to $1 million income and then you pay royalties on it. It'll probably come out late summer 2021.

    Unreal Engine now free

    Which version should I get? Publishing or Creators? Which version did you get and why did you choose it? What are the unforseen consequences of choosing one or the other?

    Correct update process

    A couple years ago I had something like 30 version stowed away on a drive. I'm an incurable pack rat. 3DCoat is very easy and clean to install and uninstall.
