Shameless self promotion by Plastic Tolstoy
Our 3d animation we spent 12 god-damn weeks on last year has gone live!
And… our site has been updated with Retina resolution gfx so now everything will look razor sharp (provided you have a MacBookPro, iPad, or iPhone that supports Retina™.. :)
It’s the world’s first point-and-shoot 3D camera. It’s not a conventional camera, but it’s like a camera - particularly when it comes to learning curve and ease of use. If you can use a point-and-shoot Nikon, you’ll find the Lynx even easier to use. Instead of outputting 2D images, it produces 3D models of whatever you point it at.
Even though I don’t do much editing, this does seem very useful!
Printed Optics (by DisneyResearchHub)
Printed Optics is a new approach to creating custom optical elements for interactive devices using 3D printing. Printed Optics enable sensing, display, and illumination elements to be directly embedded in the body of an interactive device. Using these elements, unique display surfaces, novel illumination techniques, custom optical sensors, and robust embedded components can be digitally fabricated for rapid, high fidelity, customized interactive devices.
Pixar’s Open Subdiv - an impressive new technology from Pixar. They made it opensource so hopefully Maxon will pick it up and put it in the next version of Cinema 4D. :)
