In Topic: Best platform/cms for a portfolio website?

17 March 2015 - 04:35 PM

Are there folks that would be interested in a Wordpress portfolio, but just don't have the time to learn it? I was kicking around the idea of a tutorial on the concept. 


It's pretty easy. Part of the trick is working with a video friendly template, or at least having a plugin that deals well with video. There's a number of easy options. Or... meh?

We used it on the last Red Giant film and it was really awesome. Granted, "coming soon" doesn't help you now.

In Topic: Delay turbulence in Particular

I must not be following the problem. If you want the turbulence to happen later, then just keyframe the parameter that be affected by turbulence. Anyway, it sounds like you have a couple options already.

In Topic: Delay turbulence in Particular

I'm trying to figure out a way to delay the start of the "fade-in" for the turbulence physics property in Particular. I've got a light drawing a line and after a while I want that line to wiggle/fade out but I want it to be stationary long enough to be read. I'm suspicion it can't be done but figured I'd ask the group before giving up on it.


any ideas?

Unless I am missing something here...

In Topic: Element 3D - network rendering

03 March 2015 - 07:21 PM

Crawlies are exactly what you might get when sending a render across a network of GPUs.  That's the bugger here. GPU from machine to machine can be pretty inconsistent.  And Element has no fallback CPU mode. 


I think, fundamentally, Element 3D is simply designed to be a down-and-dirty 3D rendering environment. I use it for basic shapes, slabs and every job that requires a jet fighter (which so far is zero).
