Who doesn’t want to kick off the week with some words of wisdom from LAIKA? By enhancing their use of Shotgun through both custom tools and new technology, this award-winning studio has built a workflow that advances both the quality of their schedules and the time it takes to create them. Hear about it first-hand in this Vision Series talk.


Jamie Cardoso shares a tutorial for 3ds Max along with a handy script, SubSpline, which is for – you guessed it – splines, and allows users to create an array of different selections, material IDs, and ID Patterns with great ease.

Harvey Newman drops episode 3 of Animation Power Tips, featuring the graph editor.



Eloi Andaluz Fullà gives us a lil’ tutorial on how to convert images to 3D objects in 3ds Max.
