• Rolla - You know you like it

    Who said you can’t chop a rolls

    Monday, June 2, 2014

    I love Rolls Royce. One my favorites is the 1959 Silver Ghost III but I also love hot rods and custom cars. Given that here is my Silver Ghost, I call it Rolla. It has been slammed and had almost 5″ chopped out of it. The only thing it is missing is some Von Dutch […]

    Custom S5 – Everything is better in black

    Tuesday, March 11, 2014

    This is a quick render I did the other day. It was rendered in V-Ray and comped in Fusion. My only thought when I started this image was everything looks better in black which is definitely true when it comes to cars. The gold stag on the number plate is the Mackenzie stag. I will have a making […]

    Ocean Water Test – HOT4MAX

    Tuesday, March 4, 2014

      So a little while ago I wrote a quick article about a plugin I purchased called HOT4MAX . Long story short, this a very short render test of the plugin. I put the test together in about an hour, as you can no doubt tell by the camera animation. I can report, that the plugin […]

    Monday, February 3, 2014

    So I thought I would have a go at creating a music clip for a competition on Genero. The track was challenging and very much outside of your usual music clip territory not just for being a classical piece of music but mainly for its rapid changes in pace and the abruptness of it. As […]

    EXPERIMENTAL: An Idea Is Born

    Monday, January 27, 2014

    I am calling this one an experimental video as it was done very quickly (in less than a day). Very simply, I think it is a visualisation of where or how an idea is created. If nothing else it is a little bit of eye candy. Below is the clip and underneath that is a […]

    Aston Martin short/tvc/video thingo…

    Tuesday, January 21, 2014

    So I thought I would start the new year off with some making of clips from a little animation I have been working on. It was inspired as you no doubt will be able to tell by Joseph Kosinski’s Black Bird spot that he made some years ago. I have always liked it and thought I […]

Highpoint Animation – Our Vision Sydney

Last year Our Vision complete an animation for Highpoint project in Hurstville. This animation was turned around pretty quickly and came together without much trouble at all. Along with the film, Our Vision also produced a number high res still images. The project was created with 3dsmax and rendered in V-Ray as usual. You can check […]

V-Ray Simple Set GI Paths

Continuing my theme of releasing  simple and useful scripts, I thought I would release this simple tool for quickly setting both Irradiance Map and Light Cache auto save and from file paths. When you are submitting jobs to be rendered this is one of those tedious things that you need to do which lends it self to […]

Collapse Geometry

Over the years I have written a bunch of scripts for collapsing geometry, especially since I started working with CAD files more often. I finally had some time to wrap them all up into one interface for easy use. The collapse tool is very simple to use, you can collapse the selected objects only, by […]

Proxy Tools is another one of my most used scripts. It allows you to control the display modes of V-Ray proxies in your scene. This tool has speed up my workflow on large scenes 10 fold. Any scene with large numbers of proxies will benefit from using this tool. As you can see in the screenshot above […]
