Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, February 20, 2:19 PM

How many Lego pieces did it take to make The Lego Movie? It’s complicated. As it turns out, the film’s creators, directing and writing duo Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, didn’t just rely on actual Legos for the film; as the New York Times pointed out, just the number of bricks required for the task alone would’ve already cost millions of dollars.

"

MAIN FEATURES:

Character animation toolset Integrated nucleus dynamics system for particles, cloth and hair Customisable through MEL and Python scripting and C++ or Python API capabilities Core modelling tools for polygons, NURBS or subdivision surfaces Viewport 2.0

DEVELOPER: Autodesk

Maya has been an industry-standard 3D modelling, animation and VFX tool for more than a decade. Over the last few releases there hasn’t been much to suggest that Autodesk is trying to reinvent the wheel, but there have been small but significant changes – and Maya 2013 is set to continue this trend. While the basic navigation, tools and workflow remain the same, there have been additions and improvements made to try to speed some tasks up and make others easier."

Anime Studio Pro and Debut 9 were released yesterday and Smith Micro sent us a review copy of the Pro edition. Anime Studio, if you unfamiliar is affordably priced animation software package that addresses both the needs of the casual animation enthusiast (through Debut) and the hard core animator with previous training in other software (through Pro). 

 

It seems to me that there is major difference from older versions of the software.

Within this list, they are many techniques that offer differing ways of producing the final image in an animated movie; such is the artistry behind each respective film. The beauty of animation is that the scope of an artist’s imagination is genuinely limitless. For the purpose of this list, I will be trying to give an impression as to why a certain film deserves its place, whether it be that the film has a beautiful aesthetic, a compelling narrative or – as in most cases – both these things.

3D houses "grown" like bonesSmartPlanet.com (blog)Softkill has developed a 3D printing technique for large scale construction which mimics the growth process of bones.

 

“Softkill house moves away from heavy, compression-based 3D printing of on-site buildings, instead proposing lightweight, high resolution, optimised structures which, at life scale, are manageable truck-sized pieces that can be printed off site and later assembled on site.”

Element 3D review: After Effects plug-in | 3D World | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it

"The key feature of the program is that instead of point particles or 2D imagery, it can replicate 3D objects: either OBJs or native C4D files. It can handle objects consisting of millions of polygons, along with high‑resolution UV textures, so it’s possible to generate some extremely complex and realistic scenes – and because it uses OpenGL, manipulation and final output is generally pretty fast."
