ARTUR ROSA

3d Art Direct interviews veteran sci-fi 3d creator Artur Rosa, of Portugal, Europe.

VUE | PS

“When I’m making an image, I always have three priorities: first comes beauty, then innovation and in third place comes realism. If I have to sacrifice realism for the sake of the first two, I will and frequently do. But generally I try to obtain some kind of balance.”

BJORN MALMBERG and RYAN MALONE

3d Art Direct talks with Bjorn Malmberg and Ryan Malone about their continuing Extra Solar sci-fi project.

POSER | PS

“It has taught us much about character development. We want to know everything about the character, regardless of whether that conveys directly in the story.

STEFAN KRAUS
3d Art Direct interviews the creator of the 3d landscape mesh creation tool WorldCreator.
” If you create a terrain, you can create a preset for that terrain and share with others. We have something like 2,000 or 3,000 presets that are shipped with the tool.”
WORLDCREATOR
JESSE-LEE LANG
3d Art Direct talks glows, shadows and more, with expert Carrara 3d artist Jesse-Lee Lang.
“Carrara has great tools for lighting and plenty of options, for anyone just starting I’d say just to keep it simple, throw some shapes into a scene along with your lighting and then just play with these light sources and their options and study the way the lights and shadows react with the objects”

MARK J. BRADY

3d Art Direct interviews Mandelbulb artist Mark J. Brady (‘MarkJayBee’) about his amazing work.

MANDELBULB 3D | 2D

“I’d always loved the quality of lighting, and the clarity of the final rendered output from Mandelbulber, and going from that to Mandelbulb 3D’s completely different final rendering method took some getting used to.  But, as I played with the program more and more, I began to get a sense of the much larger range of creative options — particularly via the formulas — available within the program, and it wasn’t long until I was using it exclusively”

JAN VAN DE KLOOSTER

3d Art Direct talks to the Swiss 3D artist Jan Van de Klooster about his Vue based sci-fi landscapes.

VUE | BLENDER | 3DCOAT

“When I model, I might start with a simple thing like a wheel, and from there it grows into a landing gear and then I move on to attach a spaceship to it.”

3DAD 027 : Interview with Dax Pandhi from QuadSpinner – Developing Cool Tools for Vue and World Machine

We are excited to interview Dax Pandhi, founder of QuadSpinner, who talks with us about his life in the real as well as the virtual world, and how he sees the user experience as paramount in creating tools for digital environments.

Helios for Vue

Matt Conway, Matter Painter and Concept Artist for “Game of Thrones, “The Avengers”, and “Avatar” has said:-

“I was unable to make the class in person, but picked up a copy of the DVD, and I also Dax’s book, Realism in VUE. Dax, in my opinion, is the single authority on VUE. He explains in a clear and easy-to-understand manner how to get the most out of VUE, and how to create ultra-realistic scenes with the shortest render times possible.

QuadSpinner has done all the hours of research so you don’t have to. You no longer have to spend hours of your time tinkering with sliders and wondering how it will effect the scene. As a matte painter, I use VUE often to help create my environments – and QuadSpinner has been an invaluable resource in this regard. ”

3DAD 018 : Vue Animation with Michel Rondberg & Drea Horvath from D&D Creations

In this session, we get behind the scenes of D&D Creations and learn how this powerful partnership of Drea Horvath and Michel Rondberg was created. Many people in the Vue community will have heard of least one of these names, so you can discover more about this partnership in this session, what they did in their early years to get to the level of success they have achieved now.

Even they are suprised how fast they have got involved in commercial and non-commercial productions of bigger studios in a relatively short time. It’s been only since the start of the year since they officially launched their services, but during their first few months they has already worked on a cinematic trailer, a historical animation, and building scenes for a big commercial 3D projection mapping project.

Editorial: How to make a sci-fi series : The Making of CAS Nobility

The creation of a single static scene in 3D can be time consuming, but when stepping up to animation it certainly takes a great deal of extra resources. But what about the making of a whole science fiction series? It’s an ambitious and exciting project to undertake and 3D Art Direct will be following the creation of this venture. It’s called C.A.S. Nobility–with the tagline of “These are not the heroes you are looking for”. It’s also dubbed “The Office in Space” – which indicates it is a drama/comedy or a “dramedy”. The story is set 700 years from now and it’s about the starship “C.A.S. Nobility”, Humanity’s most powerful starship yet crewed with people that are anything but noble.… Read the rest
