Larger Than 4K: Larger Than Life!

Larger Than 4K: Larger Than Life!

Keen Live's Walter Soyka regularly works with files twice the size of EPIC's 4.5K - and how about a 120-foot video wall at 14,700 x 1200 - that's why he needs all the power he can get from his workstation.

The Hobbit & The Dawn of High Frame Rate Cinema

The Hobbit & The Dawn of High Frame Rate Cinema

The technology wizards of the film/TV industry have been talking about High Frame Rate cinema for a long time; indeed, Douglas Trumbull's Showscan at 60 fps presaged the current interest over 30 years ago. But it took director Peter Jackson to take the plunge for mainstream cinema, declaring he would shoot The Hobbit in 48 fps to get momentum going. In about a year's time, manufacturers made the gear, theater exhibitors updated their movie theaters, and the studios prepared for one of the most audacious technology debuts that cinema has seen. Creative COW goes behind the scenes to see what it took for you to see The Hobbit in 48 fps.

Method Studios: VFX for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Method Studios: VFX for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Method Studios was approached by Fox's visual effects team to work on Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and were offered some very tasty stuff to solve - a train sequence with burning bridges, full CG fire, all in stereo. As CG artists, this is the kind of meaty work you really want to go after. Randy Goux shared his experiences on Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter with Creative COW.

VFX Files: Khaos Digital Helps Bones Tell Its Stories

Khaos Digital's David Watkinson creates all those images for Bones, and specializes in creating content for screens that play back in real-time during production. Creative COW looks at how it's done.

One of the wonders of the C4D platform is it's interconnectivity with other sources of 3D models. Let's be honest, who has time to handcraft thousands of blades of grass or populate the night sky one star at a time? But using the content available in Poser and the generators found in Vue, it takes just a little longer then this 5 1/2 minute tutorial to put that content into C4D for integrated scenes and robust animations.
