Topic of Helge's presentation: 

Autodesk
Photorealistic VFX rendering with ARNOLD for Autodesk Maya 2017

 

FORUM | COMPANY SUITES | AUTODESK SUITE

Thursday, May 04, List-Saal: Turm B, 11:00 - 12:00

Topic of Helge's presentation: 

Autodesk
Photorealistic VFX rendering with ARNOLD for Cinema 4D

The SolidAngle ARNOLD renderer has established itself as an industry standard for VFX production in feature films. On top of its success in feature films, its ease of use, intuitive and artist-friendly operation, excellent controllability, and popularity has made it extremely popular in other areas of photo-realistic VFX production, such as commercials.

3D & VFX trainer Helge Maus demonstrates the tight integration of the ARNOLD renderer with Cinema 4D and the added value this proven production renderer offers.

In addition to photo-realistic render results and an unbiased Monte Carlo GI for animation, the node-based shading system and the integration of third-party shaders will also be shown. The powerful AOV (multi-passing) system leaves nothing to be desired. Topics such as DeepEXRs, OpenVDB as well as integration with hair and spline rendering, TP, X-Particles and Turbulence FD will be demonstrated within the context of VFX production.

 

Houdini Day at FMX 2017

This year Helge Maus has the great pleasure to present Motion Graphics Workflows with sideFX Houdini on FMX. He is very proud to be part of this great lineup of presenters and artists.

Looking forward to meeting you there! Get more information at fmx.de or sidefx.com

Houdini Engine for Cinema 4D - Introduction and Best Practice


The Houdini Engine gives Cinema 4D artists access to the power of the VFX and simulation multi-talent Houdini FX. Digital assets created in Houdini FX can be opened directly in Cinema 4D. Files can be exchanged between both applications and fine-tuned using the available options.

In this workshop, Helge Maus shows how to set up digital assets in Houdini FX and how to integrate complex particles, fluids and fracturing simulations. Helge will also cover special workflows for rendering volumetrics such as clouds using OpenVDB and ARNOLD renderers.

Date: August 22 to 26
Place: pixeltrain studios, Feldbacherstrasse 493, 8311 Markt Hartmannsdorf, AT
 

Description:

True to the motto "learn together - work together - sweat together", we devote the last week of August the joint elaboration and learning of Character Rigging, BodyPaint 3D and VFX tools in MAXON Cinema 4D.

We will work with tools and plug-ins such as X-Particles, Navié, MoGraph and TP, ProjectionMan and 3D-Tracking in SynthEyes.
Helge Maus hosts the workshops of this VFX-Summer Academy as hands-on. He focuses on the benefits evolving from the process of working and learning in a team and additionally will of course lead the learning process with his experience as a trainer and as a vfx-artist. Therefore, the workshops are characterised by a high level of know-how in the field of 3d, vfx and animation and  everyday work experience. You get to know, how and why things work or do not work. It's not the functionality of different tools, which is focused on, but the interaction and the integration of these tools in a production pipeline as a whole.

We are looking forward to getting to know you!
