To celebrate impending doom on Halloween, we are introducing ‘Trick and Treat’: your chance to get a treat by giving us a trick!
YellowDog have been publishing 3D tips for over two years, and for a limited time only, we’re putting you, the 3D and VFX artists, in control.
Send us your favourite 3D tricks – the hacks you use every day but no one else uses, the clever ways you get round problems, the secrets you’ve discovered – to us to get a little treat from YellowDog: all submissions will receive 5 hours free rendering on our award winning platform.
Selected tips will be published on Facebook and Twitter with shout outs to the successful applicants, so make sure that they are your absolute best! Eligible tricks can be video tutorials, written blogs, or even lines of code that you want to share.
You have until midnight on October 31st to email your favourite trick to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re looking for ideas, then why not check out some of our more recent 3D tips? You can discover how to use Irradiance Maps in V-Ray, or how to create dynamic fur in Maya’s XGen.
Need a little more inspiration? Cue Thriller music!
In studios across the land
The Deadline hour is close at hand
Freelancers crawl in search of blood
To terrorise Soho neighbourhood
And what artists shall be found
Without scripts for getting render times down
Must sit and face caches of hell
Where alembics rot inside a source object shell!
The foulest stench is in the hair
Processing Yeti takes a thousand years
And mental ray ghouls from an ’89 tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom
And though your XEON fights to stay alive
Your RAM will start to shiver
For no mere MAC or PC can resist
The evil of CG thriller!
