Borislav "Bobo" Petrov, and Thomas Phariss of Thinkbox (makers of Deadline, Frost & Krakatoa) will be joining us to demonstrate workflows with the new Krakatoa for Maya particle renderer.
Come learn how you can create awesome particle effects inside Maya, such as smoke, dust and plasma. Krakatoa allows you to generate hundreds of millions of particles using regular Maya particles or nParticles, import and manipulate 3rd party particle simulations from products like RealFlow, or convert geometry into point clouds and render them using various volumetric shading algorithms in a matter of seconds.
Alex Scollay of Clever Mammals will be discussing his use of KickStarter and amazons' EC2 to create Vicki's Wish: a digitally illustrated book for iPad
While working as a freelance artist in NYC, Alex has embarked on creating his own illustrated and animated book for the ipad. Their kickstarter campaign was successful in raising over $5000 to aid in software, hardware, and use of Amazon's Cloud technology to help complete the project. He has agreed to come share what its like to take on such an ambitious project on your own.
