Recommended Posts

Wow, I didnt realize it came and went. I didnt hear anything whatsoever about it.

I guess that's where the announcements for max and maya came out of.

 

Was there anything of note that anybody is aware of? Was a very quiet passing.

I went out and demoed for Maxon. It was a pretty cool convention. Too bad the city was so frickin' hot! It was just as other people said it would be...much more techie. A lot of the demoing was like watching DVD extras for movies like Open Season, Pirates of the Caribbean 2 and other movies like that or it was super technical and above and beyond what most broadcast designers would use 3D for. I guess the guy who did the Pirates presentation at the ILM booth was some big wig. It was definitely geared towards hard core animation and not a whole lot about broadcast design side of things. I guess the Zbrush 2.5 demo was really impressive. I met some really cool people though and learned some really fun stuff in C4D. I will have to attend NAB next year to have something to compare it to.

Maya 8 came out... but it was barely mentioned. Probably because it is a bogus update. Fusion went to Linux. Nuke now has a free learning version. OH and this is a Biggie, part of the adobe sign fell and almost hit the presenter. I donno I just thought it was funny.

 

But for me the biggest thing was all the networking. I (think) I picked up at least one new client, and I met a ton of artists at the Cafefx party.

 

All in all though, I didn't see too much mind blowing stuff.

Yah, seems to have been a lackluster year. Seems to be more and more blah events replacing what used to be sorta exciting tradeshows and events.

 

Too much consolidation and self-congratulatory back-patting, and not enough innovation. :unsure:
