Open beta for Turtle 5.0 released

Click↑

Long time no upgrade. Illuminate Labes announce their new version of Turtle.
Turtle is a rendering plugin for Maya. It is a very fast and quickly for rendering, and now, is for fifth generation.



許久沒有跟新版本的Turtle,Illuminate Labes現在終於宣布Turtle 5.0的Open beta版。
Turtle是一個for Maya的render引擎外掛。他標榜著"時間就是金錢"(Time is money!)的宣傳口號,以快速render著名。自4.0版本後,逐漸將軟體定位在遊戲製作上,尤其是在bake各式各樣的textures,而5.0看來依舊是強化這一點。畢竟品質面仍舊有mentalray這類的巨人擋在前面,不如換條跑道。

My new semester began at this week. At the same time, I am sick at home and my HDD was broken.

Sorry I am too anger, this is a miserable week.......



新學期開始了,我也生病了。病的快死掉了,我電腦的硬碟還給我應聲壞去,讓我在生病之餘還要大老遠拿去送修電腦,最慘的是還有一些檔案未及時備份.......

真是折磨死我的一個星期.......

Half Life 2: Escape From City 17_A Live-Action Short Film




Discuss from CGTalk:
http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=59&t=729876

Independent filmmakers the Purchase Brothers have released the first episode of a live-action short film series based on Valve's Half-Life 2 called Escape From City 17, and the results are nothing short of spectacular.


知名遊戲Half-Life 2(台譯:戰慄時空 2)翻拍成小電影了。這是一部獨立製作、低預算成本的短篇電影,但其畫面品質倒一點也不差。

Luxology透露出一些關於modo401的新特色,包括Fur, volumatric Lighting, Replicators。
其中我覺得最驚人的就是Replicators啦!不同於以往的instance,Replicators可以快速又大量地創造出數量驚人的畫面,尤其搭配modo的realtime render,居然可以即時地觀看Replicators的Render結果(啊不知道他們的電腦是怎樣的電腦....)。

3項奧斯卡VFX提名電影,由CGSociety進行專訪,在開頭就寫到這三部片的共通點即是特別關注寫實。我覺得這個現象值得討論耶,還滿有趣的,如果未來有人要朝這塊領域去發展的話。
