Back Online and News

Well it’s no secret, I’ve been busier than a beaver in a chopstick factory but the good news is one of my projects is almost complete. Monday is a holiday and I think I’ll spend some time editing a few tutorials and get some things moving around here.

Something I learned: I’m doing a concert stage scene with a rock band and instead of compositing in AE, I matched the color in AE and brought in to 3D max for compositing. This way It will interact with the atmosphere effects and blend with the lighting correctly without as much work.

Until then, remember everyday is an opportunity to learn cool stuff! Like Hockey-Basketball!

Destruction Experiment!
What is this thing! I’ve basically combined a bunch of stuff into one experiment! I might have been inspired by the amazing planet explosions from The Force Awakens but wanted to see if I could get a cool version inside Element 3D. Few Notes on this experiment; I added smoke elements, shockwaves using CC Sphere, and even […]
