Now that Autodesk Composite is FREE, I thought I would take a moment to show users the proper way to set up the disk-based caching for the best performance possible. In this example, I forego using a SSD or RAID0 in favor of a Fusion ioFX card for caching and playback.
In this short video, I take a look at how to use the one-click interop between 3ds Max 2015 and Mudbox 2015. Specific area of interst are two options for sending Mudbox sculpt layers to 3ds Max as Morpher modifier targets and secondly, sending Mudbox paint layers to 3ds Max as non-destructive, Composite maps for subsequent material editing.
In this short video, I show how users can shorten the tedious, laborious and time-consuming task of skinning and rigging a humanoid character.
In this video, I show the basic concepts behind the workflow and interop of Autodesk Catch123D, 3ds Max and Mudbox.
In this short video, I show the general workflow for creating a 3D camera solve from real world footage using Autodesk MatchMover 2013. The resulting data is then brought into Smokes Action module.
This is a rebroadcast of an M and E webinar where I demonstrated how Autodesk Smoke 2012 can work in tandem with a 3D CGI pipeline for creative finishing. UPDATE NOTE - this video was recorded with Autodesk Smoke 2012. Users can now download a trial version of the newer 2013 release here. http://usa.autodesk.com/smoke-for-mac/ This includes significant changes to the User Interface, but no features shown in this video above have been removed from the application. //garyD
