DID YOU KNOW THAT WE CAN DO MORE THAN JUST 3D? We’ve been creating brochures and web sites to support the property marketing industry for the past four years, but did you also know that we can look after hand-drawn sketches too?
THE CHAOS GROUP are the wonderful makers of the V-Ray plug-in, and version 1.5 (final) has been released! We have ordered our hardware protection keys in, and are extremely keen to see what this latest upgrade to our rendering software will bring!
AS WE CONTINUE TO BUILD UP OUR SKILLS, we have started implementing the use of Motion Capture data into our animations – basically it’s a way of translating real life motion data to our pixellated characters! So far it’s bringing up all sorts of weird and wonderful results – but it is neat to be able to set up a rigged character to dance, walk, or even use a fire extinguisher!
