HDR Sets – Review, of sorts

HDR Sets

So, the other day I was browsing Max Underground as usual when this post caught my eye. Seeing as I often waste spend my time creating renders of cars I like, I am always on the look out for great HDRs I can use. As you will see below HDR Sets products are second to none. […]

Highpoint Animation – Our Vision Sydney

Highpoint Hurstville

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 […]

Ocean Water Test – HOT4MAX

Hot4Max Render Test

  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 […]

Consisting of Apartments, town homes and houses. Our Vision was responsible for all of the work in the film. We […]

Tutorial – Fusion, Zdepth, EXR’s, 3dsmax

10. Adjust the settings to get the desired effect

It is AMAZING how often people ask me about this. I wrote a tutorial way back in 2010 about how to use Z-Depth passes in Fusion. To this day it still gets a lot of traffic. However, that tutorial is somewhat out of date and seems to be causing more confusion than clarity. So here is […]

One_77

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 […]

Suzuki Grand Designs TVC

Suzuki Grand Vitara TVC

Towards the end of last year we (Our Vision) were engaged to create a Grand Designs inspired TVC for Suzuki who are sponsors of Grand Designs Australia. As usual we had a tight timeline to turn it around in. The animation went from previz to final in one week, over the next week we rendered an comped. […]

Cortex

I thought this was worth a mention. The guys at Ephere have been working on an exciting project that looks quite promising. What looks like a node interface for creating plug-ins for max has the potential to make the SDK even more accessible to artists and TDs. I am assuming the plug-ins it creates are using their […]
