Do you get work from Behance?

21 January 2016 - 11:41 AM

I don't take the site seriously, but I went to Faux Images in Berlin (200 people there with their cute partners, what? There's sod-all mograph work in Berlin) and the presenters said they were approached by multiple prospective clients after putting shiny HDRI nonsense on their Behance page. Can anyone attest to this?

Octane to Vray Conversion Python Script

28 September 2015 - 08:47 AM

Er, so I tried to play around with Beeple's Zero Day project files. They're pretty huge and stuff and don't play, because he's a mad genius who doesn't optimise anything. Anyhoo, I only have a demo of Octane but I do know that Vray and Octane are more or less identical in implementation for c4d - same tags, very similar materials. It's child's play to pull up the call commands for all params as well.


I wanted to write a script that could convert all Beeple's lovely Octane materials automatically into Vray.


But then, it would be easy enough to convert the camera, env, light tags as well.


Anyone got an idea? I suck at python, I'd love to see what Lennart could pull out, and I am disinclined to use this to teach myself python if there is already snippets floating around I can mangle into shape.

I'd like to see a similar material conversion script to see how to put a new vray material into memory and populate its params from (at least) the active Octane material and then replace it.

Power Animation With Pose Morphs

09 July 2015 - 12:28 PM

Hello hirsute chairhuggers,


I've just uploaded a tutorial about boring old pose morphs - but - I'm sharing a technique for doing really complex nested exploded-view animations with a few HUD sliders. It's worth a click, right?


Download the rigged speedometer model and see more info here: http://edmundbrown.t...th-pose-morphs/


I get that posting tutorials to professionals is a bit like throwing swine before pearls, I do. But I arrived at a good workflow, so if you like leaving the office early and such, maybe wash your eyeballs with it.
