The Hulk and Wolverine were portrayed here as 3D character models. Parts of this virtual sculpture were 3D printed to make moulds for creating these superheroes from confectionery. The UK Pastry Club made use of these for their entry to the Coupe Du Monde world cup of pastry making. We’re proud to have this as part of our Zbrush portfolio.

The Mill united with Lush to make a 2-minute film made through biometric information perception – the point being to imagine the physical reaction somebody has to a Lush spa treatment. Basically, transforming biometric information into beautiful graphical animation.
The Lush Spa Experiment was intended to catch biometric information. This information drove a progression of one of a kind and thoughtful representations, which reflect the multisensory encounters of a Lush Spa treatment. The film is a masterful 3D visualisation version of the body’s reaction to the spa treatment.
Solution: I had renamed 3dsmax.exe to 3dsmax.exeold . When I renamed it back again this error message stopped showing. Also if 3dsmax.exe was renamed your shortcuts in windows may point to the wrong file. You need to check that they are pointing to the correctly named one. On my start menu, the 3ds max 2016 icon was aiming at the renamed 3dsmaxrenamed.exe, not 3dsmax.exe when I changed it’s properties the error did not recur. Sometimes needs to be 3dsmax instead of 3dsmax.exe

CGI Animation Process uses Houdini FX
The Last Bastion is the latest animated CGI short from the Blizzard, game developer. For the most part, the CGI animation process uses Houdini FX. The superior SideFX software works seamlessly with Maya and Cinema 4D objects loaded. The modelling of the moss on the robot happened in Autodesk Maya. Xgen is the provider of the required mini frond-like fibres that gives the moss the correct appearance. The team had to be careful that the data would track in both packages.

The Merida character is a very complex setup. One of the most devious things to achieve in
CGI is realistic hair that moves and has the general look that appears “right”. The artists and technicians at PIXAR have hit the mark on both of these counts. Too right as the hair is quite a large signature of her Scottish heritage and character.
There is a subtle mix of subsurface scattering – a method of approximating how light shines through semi-translucent material such as flesh or hair simulations – and artistic styling of many lengths of hair with a variety of strand length, curl, wave, and frizziness.
Oscar-Nominated in 2003 this animated short is truely atmospheric with a level of serene beauty in a twisted world where an adventurer exploring a dark and strangely compelling world. Based on a science fiction story by Janusz A Zajdel the story focuses on a visit to a mysterious organic building where there is an analogy played out showing how our current achievements add to the endeavours of previous generations. Produced with 3ds max and After Effects.
Shot with a high speed camera running at 600fps with stunt men with overlaid red smoke effect elements give this promo a spectacular impact:
