Re: Hello, anyone still here? :)

Glad you're back. Many folks drifted away after TS. Some new people appeared (new = after Caligari forum). Spacekdet appears fairly regularly. Prodigy on occasion. Marcel infrequently but with great artwork (TS and Bryce). Several still use TS and have it running on newer versions of windows. I don'...

Re: Movies and TV

Interesting https://vimeo.com/46304267 46304267 Also interesting. I can't see the embedded videos, yt or vimeo, unless I use FireFox's basic tracking block list or turn off anti-tracking. The strict block list shuts off the embedded videos. I can watch the videos at those websites with strict blocki...

Re: Finis' Experiments and Scribbles

Eevee character animation https://youtu.be/nxrwx7nmS5A nxrwx7nmS5A Looks like eevee will be more than enough for me. Photo realism is not my thing but if needed beyond eevee there is still cycles or Daz-Iray. Whenever I get windows 10 then prorender could be an option. Blender 2.8 is looking good wi...

Re: The hype is over....

I hope the gpu's get cheaper. Bitcoin's value has decreased a lot. I read that investors call that a "correction" -- when something returns to a reasonable value from an unreasonable increase. However, gpu's are not used much to mine bitcoins now. The difficulty of mining bitcoins increases and it i...

Re: Some good news coming to Blender...!

Excellent! I saw and tried an earlier experimental Blender that used cpu + gpu but it was like the current Daz-Iray -- the computing power of the selected devices is used but the scene still had to fit in the smallest device's memory. If it now has the advanced memory handling that is appearing in r...

Re: 3D Artists Reporting Back

Inferno part two was good. I went near the edge of the dunes and saw different formations, critters, and plants. I used the snow and beach setting on my camera and the photos look better. The regular setting gave a blue tint. dunesedge.jpg All mowers are in the shop and now my truck makes a scary so...
