MIA: Ken Pimentel

By Ken Pimentel - 6 Jun, 2012 - 3ds Max

Sorry for the absence from the forums and blogging. There are two basic reasons:

1. Lot's going on with roadmap planning and figuring out the future

2. A desperate effort to get everything sorted before my sabbatical starts June 8th!

EUE 2012

I was also crazy enough to plan a trip to the EUE event in Utrecht a week before my departure. The good news is that the event was well worth it and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. It really is the very best event I go to. I mean it takes place in a pub! How couldn't it be great? You really owe it to yourself to attend at least once. Hurry before their self-imposed cap of 240 attendees won't let you.

We rolled out our roadmap plans to 45 of the faithful, or maybe that's the doubtful? Anyway, they seemed to like what we were showing them. We did ask for feedback and it seemed we got mostly positive reactions. It's not earth-shattering what we're planning, but I think they liked the focus on stability, performance, workflow improvements and some interesting innovations thrown into the mix. Maybe it was the required drinking game before you entered the room? I'll have to remember that trick in the future.


I'll be gone for a couple months, so don't break anything while I'm away. Sailing the seven seas, or at least the East Coast of USA and dodging hard things.

I'm sure when you're looking at the sail you'll think that that piece of mCloth looks pretty good with those wind forces applied, the SPH is making nice splashes at the bow and that ocean shader is looking pretty Awesome ;) It was nice meeting you at the EUE and enjoy your well earned break Ken!

Mmmm... isn't sabbatical just another name for a drunken vacation, or was that just me. Anyway, have a nice safe trip man and don't worry about us coz we just may all migrate over to Cinema 4D while you're gone. And be good :)
