Torn Fabric

Ah, the times… It seems another one has bitten the dust. While elsewhere 3D software is getting worse and worse (Hello Maxon!), the last few bits of truly innovative programs die off. This time Fabric Engine is the victim of this trend. Now granted, it was nerdy stuff and at the end of the day, […]

Your annual Maxon

Of course I’ve announced a hundred times that I plan on staying away from this stuff, but it’s that time of year (SIGGRAPH, that is) and I just can’t help but feel compelled to jot down a few lines regarding the latest R19 release of Cinema 4D. Yes, *boohoo* to myself for not having enough […]

This Blog will end (sort of)…

At long last I’ve decided to not extend my domain registration for this particular blog. I barely write anything these days anymore because – sad, but true – I’ve mostly lost interest in the things I used to geek out about in the past. On the best of days I can’t decide whether to throw […]

Aside from the devastating psychological effects – you always feel like you paid for something that you are not getting and have to continue to […]

Cinema Ray

How strange a place the 3D software industry has become once again becomes apparent when you read this bit of news about Maxon partnering up with nVidia over iRay. The funny thing of course is, that this feels a bit like someone picking up the pieces at a bargain price now that Autodesk have decided to […]

Adult Cinema

It’s SIGGRAPH time again and pretty much like every year, Maxon is getting the “new release” carousel spinning with their announcement of Cinema 4D R 18. Being 18 years so happens to be the age where you are considered an adult in legal terms in many countries around the globe, so this seems fitting. Like in […]
