It’s hip to be square – G Class

Fusion x64 TIFF File

I LOVE the Mercedes G-Glass, I have no idea why. There’s something innately beautiful about it while still being tough and having a presence on the road. Kind of like a MMA fighter but wearing a tux, its hard, from the street and ready to go but along the way it has been refined a polished, it […]

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. […]

Custom S5 – Everything is better in black

Custom Audi S5

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

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 […]

Spring Cove Manly – Our Vision

Spring Cove Manly

We finished this project up last year and so far it has been very well received. Spring Cove is a very high end development in Manly, possibly one of the best harbour locations in Sydney. 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 However, that tutorial is somewhat out of date and seems to be causing more confusion than clarity.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 […]

Aston Martin short/tvc/video thingo…

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 […]

Neat Video, Render noise reduction.

Neat Video

I have recently being using Neat Video and I have to say I supremely impressed with the results. It works great on video footage as I would expect and it also works REALLY well to clean up renders that have had to low subdivs on reflections etc… The video below is an example that was rendered in […]

Another One 77

Aston Martin One 77 Studio

I was recently playing around with an idea for car render. I chose to use my Aston Martin One 77 model. It was rendered with V-Ray 1.5 with all of the post being done in Digital Fusion 6.3 (Which I recently purchased). I hope you guys like it I would love to hear any feed back you […]

Using Z-Depth Render passes in Fusion

Zdepth

This is question I get on a almost weekly basis, how can I use my Z-Depth pass in fusion. For those of us who have been compositing for some time it is a dead simple thing to do but for those of you who are learning to composite or even just new to Fusion or […]
