Issue 121 of 3D Artist is out now!
It’s time to put on your super suits, as we venture into the world of Incredibles 2 and RenderMan with our Disney•Pixar special! Celebrate 30 years of the super renderer with 30 hero tips from the geniuses at Pixar, including Incredibles 2’s director of photography, to transform your RenderMan workflows. Plus we go behind the scenes of the long-awaited sequel to hear all the techniques taking Incredibles 2 to the next level. Artist Dylan Sisson also provides an unmissable 15-step RenderMan guide, with full scene files included on our FileSilo so that you can follow along and not miss a beat!
Elsewhere, we analyse the metamorphosis of Weta Digital, from humble beginnings to Oscar-winning character house with a sneak peek of their techniques in the upcoming Mortal Engines film, and Ubisoft senior texture artist Jonathan Benainous returns to 3D Artist to reveal his top tips for creating unbelievably stunning baroque materials in Substance Designer.
Plus, hear from Paul H Paulino and Tito Ferradans about how they created a photoreal scene with Maya, V-Ray, Nuke and Mari, while Lydia Borutta runs through creating fantasy-style hair in Blender, Joshua Gotto teaches us how to stitch 360 footage together in PTGui and Jean-Marie Marbach gives us a creative lesson in using After Effects to rig an origami bird for a music video.
