Like many high-end apps, Maya has a set of hotkeys (or keyboard shortcuts) to help you work faster and more efficiently. However, the default hotkeys are not the optimal for your workflow. Therefore, you can create your own customized hotkeys. In this article, let’s find out how to set up customized hotkeys in Maya and some Maya hotkeys for animation.
Mastering how C4D and Octane work together and use the hardware takes time but it is important for rendering efficiently. Once you understand how C4D and Octane leverage hardware, you can make smarter choices – from hardware upgrades to scene design. This article explains at a high level how the two programs leverage various system resources like the CPU, GPU, memory and storage. Let’s deep dive!
Although animation is a very flexible marketing tool, producing attractive animations constantly requires much work. 3D animations can show large landscapes, crowds of people, or altered realities since they have greater depth and scale. In addition, the use of 3D animation also helps create images that are realistic or extremely difficult to generate (which cannot be achieved with traditional animation techniques).
In this post, we will share the best software options to create 3D animations easily and get the best results.
As we all know, Blender is a very popular open-source 3D computer graphics suite with various use cases, from creating animations to motion graphics, visual effects, and more. It can be said that this is a very easy-to-use software for beginners to participate in and learn about the field of 3D art. Recently, the Blender Foundation revealed the release of Blender 4.0, which represents “a huge leap forward in rendering, tooling, and more to take your Creative Freedom to the next level.” The release of Blender 4.0 makes it an exciting program for all professionals and graphic artists. Let’s deep dive into today’s iRender article.
To optimize Redshift’s performance, it’s important to understand how it leverages different hardware components. While the GPU plays the primary role as Redshift is mainly a GPU renderer, certain preprocessing stages depend on the CPU, disk, and network such as extracting meshes, loading textures, and preparing scenes. In this article, we will examine “How Redshift leverages hardware: GPU, CPU & Memory” to provide clarity on specifications for this renowned renderer.
OTOY Octane render is one of the most famous 3D plugins which artists and studios often use in many fields, because of its convenience and versatility. Although it’s a plugin with all the necessary features, you can still find many other cool tools or plugins to use with Octane, helping you achieve better result and saves time and money.
Today, let’s explore some best plugins for Octane you need to know.
SideFX has been officially launched Houdini 20. This is a significant upgrade to SideFX’s popular generative 3D application. It improves the program’s main tools, such as Karma, Solaris, KineFX, and others, and adds many new capabilities that 3D artists and developers may test out. Let’s explore some outstanding features of Houdini 20 with iRender in this blog today.
Although Blender 4.0 is not a major overhaul, it is a significant update. It introduces major new features to its renowned Cycles renderer. These upgrades allow for more realistic materials, lighting and scenes. In this article, we will explore new features of Cycles in Blender 4.0 and how iRender’s powerful GPU farm enables hyper-accelerated rendering for Blender.
Hair-type particle systems control strand-like items, such as hair, fur, grass, quills, etc. The interlacing of three or more material strands creates a complicated structure known as a braid. We can see them most frequently in hair though braids can be made from any flexible material, such as wire or textiles. In this article today, let’s explore how to use Blender to create hair braids.
