Siggraph 2014

It’s only 24 hours until we take-off for Vancouver, woo hoo! Tim and I are starting to get really excited about all the people we are going to meet and cool exhibits we are going to see. Have you heard of Birdly? Birdly is an installation that explores the experience of a bird in flight. It tries to capture the mediated flying experience with several methods. Unlike a common flight simulator, users do not control a machine. Instead, they embody a bird, the Red Kite. See more here.


Tim will be presenting at the Maxon Booth (Number 1422) on August 12th at 2:30pm and August 14th at 11:30am, if you’re around, come and say Hi. Tim will be giving out some one-of-a-kind helloluxx t-shirts, not available anywhere else. There will be a bunch of awesome presenters at the Maxon Booth, 15 no less! So there will be no shortage of cool work to view and hear about.


This week marks the launch of our new product learn. Cinema 4D In One Day. This intensive and comprehensive training course is aimed at entry level Cinema 4D users. Perhaps users who have migrated from an alternative 3D application, have a background of working with compositing programs or perhaps no experience in 3D at all – this is the training for you.


By using real world techniques with practical, hands on examples, you will master the fundamental principles of Cinema 4D. The training is broken down into multiple logical tutorials, which you will rapidly progress through, learning essential workflow procedures and understanding the core requirements of this powerful program whilst simultaneously producing finished work with production value.

Each class comes with a free bonus video – Tim’s Tips – which is a collection of complimentary techniques, worth their weight in gold.


Be sure to check out our Training Spotlight page here. I’ve gathered all of our best selling training for Cinema 4D and Houdini for you to view on one easy page.

The Siggraph Computer Animation Festival looks amazing. There are four programs, Electronic Theatre, Daytime Selects, Production Sessions and Real-Time Live!. Check out a preview below.

So if you’re at Siggraph, come find us! We would love to meet you. Cheerio!
