mental ray 3.12 Beta

nVidia is now taking applications to test mental ray in the 3.12 Standalone Beta Program.

This would give you access to a time-limited and fully functional version of mental ray 3.12 with new features including Global Illumination on the GPU.

Take a look on the nVidia ARC website for more details.

Gnomon Master Class 2013

This year I’m taking part in the Gnomon Master Classes. You can read more about all of the classes and topics here: Gnomon Master Classes 2013

It’s an interesting experience trying to cram a lot of topics and ideas into 2+ hours. And I’m hopeful the introduction and demos will spark discussion on the private forums where I will be answering questions for users and looking at scenes.

I’m also changing locations from The Mill in Los Angeles to The Mill office in Chicago! So lots of things going on this month! Back to more blogging after a little break and showing you more things like improved Final Gather Force mode, User Data, and more!
