Attention! There is a nice treat at the end of the podcast for our listeners who want to test out Animate 3D :)In this episode of CG Talks - the podcast where CG guys talk about Computer Graphics we have very special guests - Mr. Kevin He (CEO and founder of Deepmotion Inc.) and their Product Director Mr. Ergin Dervisoglu together with DJ and Amiel they are going to talk about Deepmotion’s new AI-driven motion capture service and the technology behind it.You will learn how working on World of Warcraft can inspire creative research on how to automate the animation creation process and lead to opening a cutting-edge tech startup.What is the difference between AI and machine learning? Is AI going to kill us all (or at least take away our jobs)? Is automatic motion capture suitable for professional work? How fast does it develop and can it replace expensive equipment? Can physics simulation be automated? Why did Deepmotion receive an Epic Mega Grant? What about face tracking?If any of those questions ever crossed your mind or at least seem interesting, have a listen to this episode and you just might find the answers.Let’s dive into the future of motion capture that is happening now with video-based automatic mo-cap cloud service - Animate 3D by Deepmotion.Resources:Animate 3d - https://www.deepmotion.com/animate-3dFace tracking - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGjqa3O6o1kGarageFarm.NET's tutorial on using Deepmotion - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ku0zMs5sUewDeepmotion's VR Body tracking gets Epic Megagrant - https://uploadvr.com/epic-megagrants-avatar-magnet/About Deepmotion - https://www.deepmotion.com/company

s03 e06: Old and new generations in the 3d industry
In this special episode, DJ introduces Amiel - our young and talented content creator, who does Substance Suite-related tutorials for Garagefarm.NET Academy. With Marco and Andrew taking a short break (no worries they’ll be back soon) we dive into the personal experiences of older and younger generations in the CG industry.How was it back then when books were still a viable option for learning 3d?Are the times easier for young artists nowadays? Can plenty be a curse?With so many people jumping into Blender now, how does it compare to times when doing so was a renegade choice putting you on the outskirts of the mainstream?Some digressions on where the industry is heading towards are also inevitable.Will we finally get the ‘perfect’ render button or will the knowledge of how things work still be of high value?Was PBR shading always a standard, and how to adopt the new when you are used to old ways of working?Are technical constraints good for creatives or is it better when things happen at a click of a mouse?Why care about the fundamentals and technical correctness or topology when computers can handle more and more? What does Cyberpunk have to do with all that?Answers or perhaps even more inspiring questions to ask yourself can be found in this episode of CG Talks - the podcast where CG guys talk about Computer Graphics.Resources:Sketchup - https://www.sketchup.com/IOR Values - https://pixelandpoly.com/ior.htmlPrincipled BSDF - https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/la...GIMP - https://www.gimp.org/Substance Source - https://source.substance3d.com/Cyberpunk 2077 - https://www.cyberpunk.net/ph/en/Justice League vs. The Snyder Cut - Filmmaking Comparison by Thomas Flight - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uemtK...How Animators Created the Spider-Verse | WIRED - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-wUK...new cinema 4d release - https://www.maxon.net/en/cinema-4d/ - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7G84u...old Blender versions to check how it evolved - https://download.blender.org/release/PBR workflow explained - https://academy.substance3d.com/cours...https://cgobsession.com/what-is-pbr-a...zx spectrum - the computer worse than your modern fridge but great for its time - https://worldofspectrum.org/

s03 e05: Your favourite part of the 3D workflow is...?
In this episode of CG Talks DJ and Marco discuss the stuff they enjoy most in the whole 3d workflow. While everyone seems to hate UV unwrapping, it is not that obvious what actually is the most fun and satisfying thing to do in the vast 3d graphics world. Modeling, sculpting, scene layout or lighting, or just obsessively tweaking the render settings parameters - it is all up to one's tastes and preferences. Marco and DJ are giving their utterly biased and subjective opinions on that issue while digressing about lots of useful and interesting stuff for CG artists worth checking out. Starting off with comparing their experiences with different software like 3dsMax and Cinema4d and comparing them with their Blender fanboyism - struggling hard for staying objective with an inevitable blender cultist final conclusion that they just love Blender 3d. Non-Blender users do not get discouraged! - this can be a unique opportunity of understanding the mind of a blender head... After all 3d creation is software agnostic. Does look dev and lighting give you shivers as they do to DJ? Do you agree with Marco that physics simulations can drive you mad unless you are the zen master? Give a listen to the podcast and share your thoughts in the comments. Discussing favourite actions in 3d is a great reason to sidetrack into other topics such as how great it is to live today as a 3d artist with AI tech and other conveniences at hand.Podcast resources:3d Cursor Blender tool - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AqaKD0d5v0Sculpting in Blender for Beginners - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IG1IEpU5VAwWorkbench render engine - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnDythbQCZMBlender Cavity maps - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tyi03X9J8A4Look development phase - https://conceptartempire.com/look-development/Kitbashing with Meshmixer - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1UUTBZRnE8Smoke simulation in Blender beginners tutorial - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-s-CvxH5-_MBlender Schrinkwrap Modifier - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNLCJGtsU7MCloth Mesh Filter Blender - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5QUFo9XN0sRich Colburn – Modelling cloth tutorial - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNXBYI-WPU4Arqui9 archviz channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBzPV2uSji-Z5-x_svnZV1wAffinity software - https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/Blender Rigify tool - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pAhbO7U1ID8Blender cleanup tools - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jbv45vi4pbsNodevember 2020 results video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhLVzcCl1ugNodevember website - https://nodevember.ioSimon Thommes - https://www.artstation.com/simonthommesPIFuHD - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxk-ijYY4n43d Printing library - www.thangs.comRetopology - https://conceptartempire.com/retopology/#:~:text=Retopology%20is%20the%20process%20of,mesh%20polygon-by-polygonReallusion - https://www.reallusion.comCharacter Creator - https://www.reallusion.com/character-creator/Grease pencil to the tutorial - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDorym2JqrwBlender Evee renderer - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-9rYUwY47Y

s02 e09: Nodevember procedural magic with Erindale.xyz
In this episode of CG Talks, Marco, DJ and Michal sit down with Erin Woodford of Erindale fame. Erin is an artist, designer and entrepreneur specializing in creating procedural objects and surfaces in Blender. We learn about his discovery of procedural design and the experience he's had on the journey so far.Erin also demystifies proceduralism and explains how despite the nuances in this workflow calling for a less intuitive or conventionally artistic mindset, it isn't something reserved for people with coding experience or mathematical thinkers.If you've been curious but apprehensive about learning proceduralism, this episode is for you. Procedural workflows are certainly key for the future of CG so if you want to jump on the bandwagon, it's about time (and lots of fun anyway)! This might just be the thing that motivates you into participating in next year's Nodevember!Resources:Erin Woodford Youtube -https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGMyyn2FdEFcDfP1wQRh5lQErin Woodford - https://www.artstation.com/erindaleProdesktop CAD tool - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pro/DESKTOPNodevember 2020 results video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhLVzcCl1ugNodevember website - https://nodevember.ioCG Matter tutorials - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCy1f4m64dwCwk8CBZ_vHfPgErin's Discord server - discord.gg/qEmdVC3Gabe interview - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9Kpv8M4MxM&feature=emb_logoFuture Systems architecture - https://www.dezeen.com/tag/future-systems/Artlantis - https://artlantis.com/en/Enscape - https://enscape3d.comEevee renderer - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-9rYUwY47YGrasshopper - https://www.grasshopper3d.comHoudini basics tutorial - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tsv8UGqDibcBifrost Maya - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tsv8UGqDibcSverchok addon for Blender - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1UA_A-LLolwPlant Factory - https://info.e-onsoftware.com/more-info-plantfactoryMandelbulb 3D - https://www.mandelbulb.comErindale Art Deco video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8m8LeMBMwAgSimon Thommes - https://www.artstation.com/simonthommesGumroad - https://gumroad.comblenderBinge Youtube channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrXMyWVRmiXdMTpxxCsPuCQGabe CG Matter website - https://www.cgmatter.comScripting for Artists Sybren A.

s02 e07: A living with Blender - interview with Sayan Mondal
This episode of CG talks - the podcast where CG artists talk about computer graphics is very special. We introduce an exclusive interview with Sayan Mondal - founder of blueinversion.comSayan is a Blender 3D artist with (despite young age) quite a long experience in on-line tutorials. He was formerly publishing his tutorials and procedural shaders under a different name - Boundless Blending. His new rebranded channel Blue Inversion has up till now got over 6K subscribers and his best-performing tutorials reached over 55K views, and the count is still rising. He also had experience with podcasting which made the conversation a real pleasure for us and him.The interview includes Sayan's origin story and how he decided to pursue his own path as an artist and entrepreneur instead of continuing a regular education curriculum. What led him to dive deep into procedural shaders in Blender. We talk about constant learning and improvement as well as art and important inspirations and role models. The conversation develops into sharing thoughts about the modern CG industry, young and older CG artists, and their pros and cons. Along the way, we touch upon topics like A.I. Crypto Art, Inktober, November, and NPR rendering.Here are some inspiring links about things mentioned in the interview:Syan Mondal Artstation - https://www.artstation.com/iamsayanBlue Inversion - https://blueinversion.comBlue Inversion podcast - https://blueinversion.com/podcast/Sayan Mondal \ Blue Inversion tutorials - https://www.youtube.com/SayanMondalBBlendingBlue Inversion on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/blueinversionx/Blue Inversion store - https://www.store.blueinversion.comAndrew Price - https://www.youtube.com/user/AndrewPPriceIan Hubert tutorials – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbmxZRQk-X0p-TOxd6PEYJAGleb Alexandrov - https://www.creativeshrimp.comRecording of Live Stream interview with Midge "Mantissa" Sinnaeve - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MbmIUzUAeARecording of Live stream interview with Simon Thommes - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MbmIUzUAeABlender Nest - long vs short content - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdTJ0B9wezY&list=PLltL62OFtThLEuA7apIysjkPEMJr_H4uK&index=4CG Matter - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCy1f4m64dwCwk8CBZ_vHfPgCurtis Holt - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzghqpGuEmk4YdVewxA79GAReynante Martinez – http://www.reynantemartinez.comInktober - https://inktober.comNodevember - https://nodevember.ioBlender grease pencil feature - https://www.blender.org/features/grease-pencil/Gumroad - https://gumroad.comSubstance Designer - https://www.substance3d.com/products/substance-designer/Artbreeder - https://www.artbreeder.comEevee vs Cycles render engines - https://cgcookie.com/articles/blender-cycles-vs-eevee-15-limitations-of-real-time-renderingBlender freestyle rendering – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajIjebE6vkoBeer – Blender NPR rendering engine - https://blendernpr.org/beer/Deoldify – https://deoldify.aiBorderlands game look - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7x1nzZ8-FbIDead static drive game – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTfZzwydEWQCrypto art - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crypto_artRarible - https://rarible.comSuper Rare - https://superrare.coKnown Origin - https://knownorigin.io/Makers place - https://makersplace.comAlpha go documentary - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXuK6gekU1YFasten your seat belts and enjoy this inspiring ride with DJ, Michał and Sayan Mondal!
