Tutorial | The parallax effect with photoshop

By | free, Training | No Comments
I was recently asked if it was possible to add some depth to a photo, using only photoshop and here's the answer. Of course you can use Fusion or After Effects but for a quick efficient result Photoshop does the job and handles a lot of the tedium for you.

Hello all and happy new year. Hope you are all rested and recovering from the festivities. Things are hotting up here already but for now I just wanted to share this tutorial I created for Digital Arts, all about using Radeon ProRender inside maya. It’s a great renderer, with a lovely material library and works a treat. Follow the link to read the tutorial and don’t forget ProRender is free, so grab it and give it a try. I had a lot of fun writing it and it was also a great reason to bring back MilgBot.

FUSION | Sliding text reveal tutorial

By | film, free, fusion | No Comments
https://youtu.be/m18z8JniQF0 Hi everybody. I was recently asked how to achieve a sliding text reveal in Fusion. This is a question I get a fair bit as it's a common task, so here is a video showing a couple of simple methods. One shows how to use the most basic text controls to animate, while the other uses animated polygonal masks. This is unedited video so you get to see me mess up too, something I think it's important to keep in. If you have any more tutorial requests or topics you'd like me to talk about let me know in...

Fusion 8 tutorial: 3D fog

By | C4D, free, fusion, Training | No Comments
Hi all, I get a lot of tutorial requests and in the last few weeks a good few people have been asking me to cover 3d fog in Fusion, so I decided to sit down and quickly record one. I start off in C4D putting together a really simple scene, so you can see that imported files work just as well as native fusion objects. Then, in fusion, I show how to set things up and get your fog in place. It's a very basic video but gets you started and shows how the nodes link up. If you would...

Fusion 8 | Bumpy materials

By | free, Training | No Comments

  In this weeks video I show you how to star using Fusion’s internal material system, which is powerful, easy to use and gives instant feedback. I create a really basic material with just a colour and a bump but you can use the same workflow to creat pretty much unlimited materials. Just tinker with tools and don’t forget that the image input for the heightmap can be any image. It doesn’t have to be a noise, so if you a re looking to create something specific just use a loader tool instead of the fastnoise. Great for grills, coins…
