  1. I absolutely love the new v2.8 interface and if you've followed the development vlogs that Pablo put up in the Blender development channel, he explains how the new interface paves the way for new and existing features to be better integrated into Blender. The UI overhaul was overdue and needed.. Otherwise you might end up in a 3dsmax\zbrush situation..

    Finally Apple to release a new Mac Pro

    Let's start by saving up for the stand and maybe one day we'll be able to afford the monitor.. For now I could place the stand in the middle of the dinner table as an expensive ornament, my guests could admire the stand while they eat. Hahaha.. Or I'll just pass

    Finally Apple to release a new Mac Pro

    I agree with you but the problem with this one is how Apple marketed it.. As far as I know it's Apple's first venture in the true hardware "Pro" market and they went and released it during a consumer event. Also, Apple has used the Pro moniker before for their "Enthusiast" audience, it would be easy to think this would be another Apple consumer product. It was the wrong venue for the release. Now all that aside, the $1000 optional monitor stand is a pure money grab.. Borderline insulting.
  4. Anyone else planning of getting the new Oculus Rift S announced today? I just pre ordered mine.. The price was right at $399usd ($549Cdn) and since I never owned V1, the specs are good with me. I was also looking at the Valve Index but they priced themselves out of my range pretty quickly, $999usd and you still need to have the tracking modules in the room for a full room experience.. It comes with two and you'd need to buy two additional for full room tracking.. The Rift S has full room tracking OOB. There's a couple of content creation apps that I'm really interested in, not to mention Unreal Engine fully supports developing your games in VR.. If anything, fun to play with. And gaming of course.. Work hard, play hard https://www.oculus.com/rift-s/?locale=en_US

    ZBrush 2019 Launch, March 5th

    Was there such a big demand for a non realistic shading pipeline in ZB? Doubt it. As for the new subscription, now you can pay forever and own nothing as opposed to a perpetual license.. Does this mean Pixo will start charging for every other update now? They have to or the Subs dont make sense.. At least make them Sub to own for one version at the end of the sub once you've paid the equivalent of the retail price.

    ZBrush 2019 Launch, March 5th

    Ok I'm about 12 mins in the presentation where the guys is setting up a toon shader look in the viewport and already I'm going wth is up with all the clicking everywhere.. I mean everything is buried all over the place in different menus.. Complete incoherence. <- maybe it's just me but that would snap me right out of creative mode, I'd be constantly digging in menus. I didnt think 2019 was going to be a new interface but you always hope they have some sort of vision on how to gradually simplify the interface.. Nope,

    ZBrush 2019 Launch, March 5th

    I'm excited either way.. whether it's a 3DCoat or ZBrush release, it's new shiny to play with
  8. I have the Samsung EVO M.2 as well. So fast.. Love it!
  9. I dont have much more info on this release other than the email.. Looking forward to it! Have you guys heard anything? Well we wont have long to wait anyways. http://pixologic.com/zbrushlive/zbrush-2019-world-premier-march-5th/
  10. And I was thinking, this is just as Pilgway is releasing their Smart Material Library store.. They could not of timed it better. GJ Andrew and team. Quick Edit, not trying to bash Algorithmic, I love their product! I'm just dissapointed in their corporate move.
  11. Man.. I should of bought those Substance Painter licenses back when they had that last sale... I have a feeling it's the last time I see a perpetual license from them.
  12. That's the thing.. No one knows at this point.. I'm not buying into the hype until i see real benchmarks and price point.. Like I was saying, if AMD has equivalents to NVidia's offering and is at the same price point, it's not enough for me.. Not to mention I'd be leaving RTX behind for a few years.. We'll see when it comes out.
  13. I went AMD for my CPU but my GPU is another story... For the same price I'll always lean towards NVidia.. Even with the last mess we just had with the 20xx series. AMD has to make it worth switching over.. Besides, the markup on those cards is high lately so they have a lot of room to lower their prices and attract new customers. Radeon VII vs RTX 2070 for the same price? Not even flinching, RTX every time..

    Ryzen 7 1700x vs Ryzen 7 2700

    I purchased the 2700x with a Gigabyte Aorus motherboard last Black Friday.. Couldnt be happier! Stable, fast, responsive. One thing to note, if you're going to install Windows 10, make sure you dont do the same mistake I originally did and use an old Win 10 ISO.. You're going to be cursing. lol. Use (download) the Windows Media Creation tool to create a fresh\current Windows 10 ISO and use that for your install.. It will make for a smooth install. Speaking of, combine that system with a fast M.2 SSD and it was the fastest WIndows install ever.. I had Win10 installed in 5-6 mins.. <- then added some gigabyte custom drivers.. etc.. but the base Windows install was really quick. Anyways, feel free to ask questions.
  15. Here's NVidia's CES 2019 presentation.. There was some really cool demos and tech news given during the presentation.
