After an exhausting couple of flights, a few of the staff from Constructive Media made the journey to Los Angeles to attend SIGGRAPH 2012 for a feast of information, releases, updates and news on all things related to the world of computer graphics!
When the lads at JD Rail have an idea they don’t muck about! Sick and tired of seeing the same problems repeated over and over again with conventional ballast rail systems, they thought – “There must be a better way!”

Our latest 3D character has just been given a name – Oscar! At the moment Oscar is living in the R&D labs of Constructive Media, where he will learn how to walk, talk, and much more!
The official release of V-Ray 2 has seen Constructive Media embrace the new features that include both realtime and realtime GPU acceleration, new shaders, updated lighting, new render elements, lens effects and plenty of optimisations!
It may be somewhat of a surprise to know that Constructive Media has also done work for the medical industry but it just goes to show how versatile 3D visuals and animations are! Recently a 3D animation was created to demonstrate the surgical installation procedure of a new medical device and also to display clearly how it functioned. With no need for actual surgery, this 3D animation made it easy to clearly see the benefits of this device.
Constructive Media has recently implemented the use of V-Ray RT to their workflow – this is probably all gobbledygook to you unless you’re nerds like us, but basically it means we can preview results quicker than ever before – almost in realtime!
Armed with a Canon 5D and a set of lenses (including a very nice Canon 24-105 IS F2.4L lens!) Constructive Media was able to record high-definition video for incorporation into a presentation that will be released on DVD and on the web for one of its clients.
Constructive Media has taken delivery of the latest 3DATS “3ds Max 2010 Architectural Visualization – Advanced to Expert” book, and it has arrived complete with signature and inspirational message from Tom Hudson, inventor of "CAD-3D 1.0" back in 1986!
