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...

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...

Pariah Studios on Patreon

By | C4D, cinematography, fusion, news | No Comments

It took me a while to really appreciate what Patreon has to offer but I think now that it makes sense and it’s time I got involved. This is really because I get so many emails and messages on youtube, Facebook, twitter etc asking for my help with a problem, or an idea for a tutorial. I love doing tutorials and it’s rewarding for me to get a message saying I’ve helped somebody out but I still have to pay the bills and keep my clients happy, so patreon helps everybody. It allows you to support me to put aside…

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…
