[permalink] 17.07.2017

Maxon Cinema 4D R17 Animation Improvements screenshotRelease 18 SP3 enhances the stability and performance of Cinema 4D, and also optimizes functions in the areas of modeling, data exchange and the user interface of Cinema 4D. New in Service Release 3 is a direct menu connection to Google's cloud rendering solution Google Zync, which enables 3D artists to utilize the computing power of Google's massive IT-infrastructure to significantly speed up rendering and work cost-effectively. UK-based animation studio Scorch Films used Cinema 4D and Google Zync to create and render a stunning VR project for a French car maker Renault. Scorch Films was hired to stage their models Megane, Zoe and Clio in an impressive way and Google Zync made it possible to cope with the massive rendering effort of the 4K VR project. Read a story about this project here. To get an overview of all enhancements and bug fixes included in Cinema 4D Service Release 3, check the SP3 changelist PDF. [source]

Waves announces headphone EQ calibration for Nx Virtual Mix Room
[permalink] 11.07.2017

Waves Nx Virtual Mix Room screenshot Waves Audio announced an update to the Waves Nx Virtual Mix Room plug-in -- a new headphone EQ calibration feature. This new feature allows users to select a correction EQ curve for specific popular headphone models. Nx Virtual Mix Room is a virtual monitoring plug-in that recreates the three-dimensional acoustics of a professionally treated mix room on any set of headphones. This allows users to hear on headphones the same depth and panoramic stereo image they would hear from speakers in a physical room, enabling them to properly judge how their headphone mixes will translate to speakers. Based on precision headphone measurement data provided by www.headphone.com, the Nx plugin's new EQ calibration curves are designed to balance out any extreme features in the headphone's frequency response, correcting them toward a common frequency balance. This provides a more transparent starting point for monitoring and mixing. The plug-in currently supports models from Audeze (EL-8 Closed-Back, iSINE 20, SINE), Audio-Technica (ATH-M50x), AKG (K-702), Beyerdynamic (DT-880, DT-990), Sennheiser (HD-280 Pro, HD-600, HD-800), Shure (SRH-440), and Sony (MDR-7506).

Autodesk Maya 2018 ships

Autodesk Maya 2018 video animation worgflow Autodesk Maya 2018 has arrived. The new version comes with enhanced workflows across the board, including enhanced modeling tools with Topological Symmetry support, single top-level symmetry control, and vector displacement map stamps. An improved shape authoring workflow offers a smoother experience, including the ability to perform pose-space deformation on rigged characters. New tools for working with UVs allow artists to stack similar UV shells, automatically redistribute UVs for even spacing, and constrain the movement of UVs along edges. Animators will benefit from updates to the recently added Time Editor and overhauled, faster-to-use Graph Editor. With 64-bit time precision, Maya 2018 adds timecode improvements with new non-integer framerates, NTSC drop and non-drop formats, allowing users to use standard capture formats without having to convert data. For the first time, rigid-body dynamics can be combined with procedural instancing, through simple and fast-to-manage dynamic properties and constraints over large numbers of instances. With just a few clicks, users can create complex arrangements of animated instances that can act dynamically, collide with each other, be bounced around by dynamic forces, and be constrained. Maya 2018 also welcomes Arnold 5 to the family with all the full features as its built-in renderer, introducing better samplers, improved speed, and simplified workflows. Arnold 5 also comes with new, more physically-accurate shaders, such as a standard surface shader, a standard hair shader, and a volume shader. Maya 2018 also includes hundreds of bug fixes to deliver a better overall experience. [source]
