Been spending the day learning some stuff about Blender. While I’ve used this amazing piece of software since high school, they’ve been making some major changes as of late, especially for visual effects work. It has built in planar tracking now, among other things that I’m really excited about. Today was spent learning how the cycles render engine works (love it!) and getting familiar with the fluid simulator so I can do the end of the film where tsunamis take out cities. Even did a mock test that turned out pretty nice. Watching some of the tutorials today on the features, I found it funny that many of them were done by kids that couldn’t be older than 13. I was blown away by what they were doing, and the understanding they have of the software. Can I hire them to join STARS Digital?
