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 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.
This video highlights the MediaSync interop between Autodesk 3ds Max 2013, Adobe Photoshop and After Effects. Also featured is a brief look at the iRay GPU rendering engine for entertainment using the Boxx 4920XT workstation and the NVIDIA Quadro/Tesla (Maximus) board-set.
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
