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.

sung Galaxy S8 concept on Techradar

By | C4D, render | No Comments
Hi all, you'll all have varying views and opinions on what phone companies will do next but there is no denying that that is a good thing. It's funny watching the comments roll in when videos are posted showing what could be coming. I love doing these jobs and recently got to do this one for the Samsung S8. The modeling, rendering and some animation was all done by me, but the post work has tweaked timings and the render just doesn't look as nice now. A real shame as Maxwell did a great job but there you go. YouTube...

https://youtu.be/on0o956cRiU In this quick tip I talk about how you can use layered materials (not to be confused with the layer shader) inside Cinema 4D to enable quick and easy control of the size and placement of certain elements of your materials, with resorting to simple tiling, which may affect other aspects of the material.
