Marius Oberholster Hey! I'm having an incredible learning experience, not only learning how Blender works (yes, still learning), but also about Open-Source and the incredible software available. Stick around!

Old renders are ready-to-use material

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Monday, March 10, 2014, In : Tips 
Hey all!

Feels like forever since the last post, but it seems that I'm only going to be able to do weekly posts for a while. Long story, but, for today, I would like to share a secret with you. A very very big one that the lecturers go on about when you study design.

That secret is: The more work you finish, the more work you have to fall back on for later projects; a library of free material if you will.

For example, you all know I've done a series of images based on the 4 seasons by Vivaldi. N...

Toons, the conclusion_haha

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, November 22, 2013, In : Blender News 
Hey all!

Looks like we're 5 for 5 this week!! Amazing!! Huge blessing! Only 3 posts on tooning though.

Now, today is a really special day in regards to tooning, because, we have been working on this fantastic topic all week. With a lot of grace and teamwork, we got a spectacular result and learned quite a bit. So, let's recap.

When we started the week, I shared a very comic-like style with you all, focused on normal influence of the ramp in both Diffuse and Specular options. It looks fantastic, ...

New tutorial, a wip

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, November 15, 2013, In : General 
Hey all,

I'm currently working on a new free tutorial and I'm really jazzed about posting it. Simply stated, it is how to make a speedometer and link it to a specific object. The same technique will be applicable in many other ways, but I'll add that in the tutorial :D.

Because of this work, I may not be able to enter the current Blender Guru Competition, but if I am able to, I would like to take a different approach and give you a behind the scenes type look of how I work.

Anywho, hope you get ...

Game Engine - Animated textures

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, October 22, 2013, In : Quick Blog Tutorial 
Hey all!

This is just so much fun! I was so surprised to find this out and I am super jazzed to share this QBT with you today!

These passed few weeks I've been blessed to be able to learn more about Blender's game engine or the BGE (Blender Game Engine) and on thing in particular that fascinated me. Also fairly puzzling, but cool nonetheless; animated textures. Basically it enables you to have constant movement throughout your games for things like water, grass, lava, etc. and even beyond that,...

Default project?_huh

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, October 18, 2013, In : Quick Blog Tutorial 
Hey all!

Today I bring you a QBT that I find incredibly useful and yet it works for you, passively; the default project in Blender.

When you open Blender, it opens with "factory" settings, which is usually a camera, cube and a light with either Cycles Render or Blender Render as the default engine. Also, most of the Add-ons are turned off, so your functionality is a lot less varied.

Here's where it becomes helpful; you can change this default project.

It is very simple and here's how:
- Open Blend...

Unwrapping a fountain

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, October 4, 2013, In : Quick Blog Tutorial 
Hey all!!

Today is a bit more lengthy, but it's still a very very quick technique; unwrapping a fountain!

This is a very quick example of what you can do with this:


Note: The entire scene is comprised of procedural textures, even the fountain and the water's animation


Now, let's get to it:
> In order to unwrap our little fountain (the water spout that is), we insert an open Cylinder mesh, pres NumPad1 to go to front view and unwrap (U) it to Cylinder projection:


> Clean up your unwrap. Usually, in ...

Normalization

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, September 11, 2013, In : Quick Blog Tutorial 
Hey there!

Good day and welcome to this Quick blog tutorial! (will make a logo later, so they'll be easily identifiable by more than just category)

Now, today's little tip applies again to the compositor (a place everyone seems to luv chromatic aberration, haha).

I'm sure many of you, if not all, have used a digital camera.
   Everyone who has used one, knows that it's light sensor can adjust it's sensitivity to what it is seeing. For example, if you put it's focus on a lamp, it will darken the i...

Hey there, long time no see

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, March 5, 2013, In : Tutorials 
Hey everyone!

Missed posting and really thought about the blog a lot, but I finally have the time to get back to the book again.

Had some big projects unrelated to Blender or visual stuff and it has really taken up a huge amount of time, but the last project was wedding pictures for a friend of mine. I was not the official wedding photographer and I would really like to say thank you to him and his team for a smashing job of directing them. Without their hard work, my pictures would probably ha...

Tutorial cover image

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, July 20, 2012, In : Tutorials 
Hey all!

I was working on the tutorial and the test scene was really not doing the effect justice, so I decided to add the method to an old, highly detailed scene I did a while back; the music room.

You can see the depth the clearest along the sofa on the right, the piano's cover over the guitar and on the music stand next to the wall.

It clearly shows that the effect does work and works well in a scene, but as it goes, the final image will always be darker in this case, because the anaglyph's b...

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen."
