Major Node Groups Update and news

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Saturday, August 10, 2019, In : News 
Hey all!!

A few things in this post:
 - Bring Gerco Home
 - Node groups - one update and a few new features
 - Update on Exodus and YouTube

Bring Gerco Home is a campaign to fund the money to pay the ransom for Gerco's release. Gerco is was a paramedic at the time of capture and is currently held hostage to the small amount of $1.5mil. I have no idea who they think they've kidnapped, but the family simply doesn't have that kind of money. Not even close. The exchange rate isn't friendly here either...

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 ...

New Blender website

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Thursday, November 7, 2013, In : Blender News 
Good day everyone!

The redesign of the Blender website has been going on for a while, but, it was posted recently and advertised through the Blender Institute's FB page.

I really like the re-design. It is a bit easier to navigate than before, imo, and I really like the white. The store seems to still look the same, but I'm sure there is a solid reason for that, as it is one of the Blender Foundations' sources of income.

I totally recommend you check it out!

Entry finished! (^^,)

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Wednesday, April 17, 2013, In : General 
Hey all!

I am very glad to report my Blender Guru competition entry is in and I am extra nervous about this one; animation.

I went more for a non-typical animation, but still counts and I really hope you all will like it a lot. I would like to post it when the competition has closed (29 April 2013, 23:59 GMT) and the winner has been announced (two days on). So please be patient until then.

On the upside, after around 4 days of rendering, it means I can get back to editing the book (oh yeah!). I ...

"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."
