Autodesk Maya Software is a 3d Animation software that most 3d Artist always anticipates to see their new release/update especially with this widespread of “more than 400 Fixed Bugs”. As a 3D Modeling Artist am always curious to try new release or update on any 3d software especially Autodesk Maya which is the most used and Industry standard for 3d Animation. Ideally, new release or update presupposes bring about new features which are meant to speed up workflow.

On this note, I’ve tried to install all previous Versions of Autodesk Maya Software from 2014 to 2018 and even the Last release, Maya 2019. Exploring Maya 2019 for Comparison with the previous version, I actually come across the following features, although most of the features do not favour Modelling Artist but we cannot shy away from the fact that they are tools to make 3d animation better. The three most important features of Maya 2019 are Fast Maya, Beautiful Working environment and Fast Animations/ Cashed playback. Let explain these in details.

 

  1. FAST MAYA

I place “Fast Maya” as number one on the list because is the only general feature that favour all 3d Artist using Maya. It is undiluted fact that Maya 2019 load faster than the previous versions. Maya 2019 have made performance improvements in a lot of areas, making this version faster in several different areas, in ways that more artists will notice in their everyday work, these improvements are listed below:

  • Faster loading of scenes that have Metadata
  • Faster loading and interaction for scenes with hidden objects
  • Faster material and texture load time
  • Faster selection performance improvement in Viewport 2.0
  • Faster pre-select highlighting on dense meshes
  • Faster snapping performance in Viewport 2.0

 

  1. BEAUTIFUL WORKING ENVIRONMENT

Beautiful Working Environment is another feature in Maya 2019. The newly Added Arnold Viewport give an edge to preview Arnold standard surface shader so that what you see in the viewport is a lot closer to the final result you are going to get from an Arnold render as preview.  Waiting for final renders can be time-consuming and creatively frustrating. Illumination (lightings) and reflections are also real-time in Viewport 2.0. Naturally, this makes your working environment a lot better since you can get a good idea of how the content will look straight in the viewport instead of waiting on a preview render.

Surely, it is newly added feature, but prefer to call it Arnold Render update and not Autodesk Maya new features because this can also be found when you install other third-party rendering engine plugins such as Radeon Pro Render and VRay.

  1. FAST ANIMATION (CACHED PLAYBACK)

This feature is particularly the main reason why I said Maya 2019 is a version targeted to animators. Maya 2019 has this feature called “Cached Playback” which means a new background process that drastically increases the speed of animation playback directly in the viewport.

With this feature, Maya 2019 is said to give animators a more responsive working environment, with higher-quality real-time previews, allowing Animator to produce better animations by increasing playback speeds. Animators are formerly used to the regular way of animating i.e animate a bit, and relax while you wait for a play blast so you can see what your change looks like at your target frame rate. Cached Playback speeds up animation playback so much that you can use playback directly in the viewport to evaluate your animations. This makes play blasting a lot less.

Cached playback is not just a regular geometry cache as Maya continuously evaluating your scene, rigs, and skin bindings in the background and caching each frame into memory. When you hit play, it simply plays back the cached frames from memory, so you get a better frame rate than if Maya needed to calculate it when you hit play. And, it’s doing this intelligently using either Cache Evaluation (CPU Memory) or Hardware Caching (GPU Memory), so it won’t re-cache frames if no changes have effected to the object in your Scene. It is only the ones that have been adjusted or made changes that need to be updated. The upside of this compared to a normal geometry cache is that you can keep working while the cache is happening in the background, so it is much more interactive and there is less waiting time. And also it is better than a Playblast since you can evaluate your animation from any angle or zoom level as it plays back, giving you a much more comprehensive review.

Sweet to hear the concept of Cashed Playback, but the downside of this features is that it require high-end PC (Higher Processor speed, Gear force and enough CPU Memory). Another cons of this feature is that it does not support Smooth Mesh Preview and Dynamics during playback.

 

In Summary, Maya 2019 Load faster than every other previous version and it can handle project with Dense Mesh better, Metadata, and Fast loading texture. I guess this is due to 400 bugs that were fixed. Maya 2019 has also include Arnold Render viewport which help shading and Texturing with Arnold better in term of creativity, though I prefer to call this Arnold Render update. Lastly is the fact Maya fast animation and Cache Playback which help to speed up playback during Animation using either your CPU or GPU Memory.

 

I’ll like to rest my pen with the word of AskNK, who said in his “Maya 2019 Review, Reaction and Rants” video for the Modeler, FX Artist, Set Dressing Layout and every other persons that does not Animate in Maya that expectation and anything in the middle, kindly take it as a grain of salt.

LEARN THE BASICS OF STORY

NO STORY – NO MOVIE

I’ve met film producers over the years that don’t even bother to read the script. Unbelievable as this might seem, they are more interested in the deal. A lawyer working for such a producer was so swept away by the complex web of business transactions that he said ‘Let’s shoot the deal!’ Needless to say, the deal was far more interesting than the finished film.

If you want to make it in movies, you need to find or create a script with a great story. Take five minutes out and read this great article on story.

Don’t be Scared of Poor Market Conditions

There are currently 20 million small businesses in Nigeria with entrepreneurs starting approximately 143,000 new companies each month. While the market fluctuates, there is no reason to you can’t create a lasting business, especially considering that recent university research notes that 57 percent of Fortune 100 companies were formed during a recession. Though the Great Recession forced many businesses to close or file bankruptcy, many start-ups were founded, because of a high rise in unemployment.

Make it a Legal Entity

You are going to be running a business, so you need to remember to make a legal entity. There is no special legal structure for a film company, so it might be helpful to get some advice to choose the best legal arrangement. It will also be beneficial to consult with an accountant to maximize your tax deductions. When choosing a name you will want to search and make sure no one has already used it. After finalizing your arrangement, get registered for local taxes and set up a bank account. After all the legal paperwork is done, start creating your website, social media accounts and YouTube channel so you can collect likes and subscribers.

Find Partners or Team Members Early

You should look for partners and team members while you are in the early stages of building your business, as they can help you avoid being crippled by overhead. You should pay particular attention on hiring people in the back office first, such as finance and production personnel. These people will build the infrastructure of your company and help keep reporting accurate. These jobs are important and will allow you to grow your business faster and hire more creative personnel. The more people you have working for you, the more tasks you can get accomplished and the sooner you can get your company off the ground.

Conduct Market Research

Research shows that the digital universe should reach 40 zettabytes by the end of the decade. With such large amounts of data, businesses will need analysts to help comb through the information. Data analysis can help your company make better business decisions by providing insights and successfully implementing them. Production companies can cover a range of topics and styles of filmmaking. You will need to do some market research to determine the most successful niche for your company preferably an untapped one. Your market analysis should consist of your industry outlook, trends and information about your target audience, their distinguishing characteristics and any regulatory restrictions that will affect your business. You will also want to get a competitive analysis that will identify your competition by their market share, strengths, weaknesses and any secondary competitors that will impact your success.

Write a Business Plan 

Your business plan is an essential roadmap for your production company’s success. This document usually projects three to five years ahead and outlines how you plan to grow your revenues. You will also need a solid business plan to present your ideas to potential investors. Your business plan should include a mission statement, a company summary and what service you are offering. You will also want to describe the target market, financial projections and the cost of operating.

Starting your own production company can be stressful and will demand your complete focus, but it can also fulfill your professional goals. For those considering following this dream is sure to consider these five insights to help get your production company off the ground as fast as possible.

Learn how to Discover Talent, Your chance to hit pay dirt

A producer’s job is to find and discover talent, read scripts, attend underground music venues, check out fringe theatre, and watch short films at festivals like Rain dance. When you find a promising playwright, actor, musician, or director, you broke a deal with them and give them money that ties them to your stable of talent for the project you are working on.

Later in life, when that actor, director or writer makes it huge, they will remember you as the person who discovered them.

Today most aspiring architect, interior designers, modelers, and builders are confused on how to choose the right three dimensional software to attain required and expected result. Among these applications, the most common ones are AutoCAD and Revit. While they both have many features in common since they have various tools to create and model both interior and exterior part of building, there are many differences that indicate each of them to have their various functionalities and diversities that make design process easier, faster and convenient. Some of these differences are;

  • AutoCAD is considered best for 2D drawing i.e. where only precise line work is needed, such as architectural plans, elevations, detailed drawings etc while Revit is considered best for modeling, generating cost schedules, collaboration and change management. 

 

  • AutoCAD as a drafting software, lets you draw precise lines within a virtual space.These lines are meant to represent real things (chairs, tables and sofas) while Revit utilizes Building Information Modeling (BIM), taking precise models of real things (like chairs, tables, sofas) and placing them around a virtual space. You can view it in two dimensions, but the lines on the paper inherently contain loads of information about the thing they represent. You can make it 3D or 2D in a simple click of the mouse. 

 

  • The use of AutoCAD is found among wide industrial areas like Architecture, Building related MEP and Structural Engineering, Civil Engineering, Landscape Architecture, Aeronautics, Electrical Design, Mapping, Industrial design etc while Revit software is mainly designed for structural engineers, architects, designers, MEP(Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing) Engineers. 

 

  • AutoCAD drawings are not interconnected, plans, elevations or sections are created separately on AutoCAD and also modified separately which affects the speed and timing of the user, while changes made in Revit can have an effect on other systems which automatically changes to accept the new information, therefore when working on a plan, the elevation and section creates automatically with accuracy while any modification made on the plan will automatically affect the elevation and section of the drawing. 

Choosing software for building modeling depends on individual choices as Mr. A might be flexible using Revit for his design and vice versa. Though it is advisable to have better understanding of how to use at least two 3D applications to ensure more flexibility.  Autocad is very cool for two dimensional geometric designs like plan, elevation, section and others whereas on the other hand Revit is one of the best three dimensional software for designing house interior and exterior. Knowing both of them let you easily switch from 2D AutoCAD plan design to 3D Revit model. So think of what software work for you most and go install it now. click here to learn more...

THREE POINT LIGHTING, WHAT EVERY FILM MAKER, PHOTOGRAPHER AND 3D ARTISTE NEED TO KNOW.

Three-point lighting (also known as the lighting triangle setup) is a standard method used in visual media such as theatre, video, film, still photography and computer-generated imagery. By using three separate positions, the photographer can illuminate the shot's subject (such as a person) however desired, while also controlling (or eliminating entirely) the shading and shadows produced by direct lighting. Now that you have your lights it's handy to know how to use them. Turning them on and pointing them at your subject is a good start, but if you really want to get the most out of them you can use what's known as "the lighting triangle.

 

 

 

KEY LIGHT

The key light, as the name suggests, shines directly upon the subject and serves as its principal illuminator; more than anything else, the strength, color and angle of the key determines the shot's overall lighting design.

In indoor shots, the key is commonly a specialized lamp, or a camera's flash. In outdoor daytime shots, the Sun often serves as the key light. In this case, of course, the photographer cannot set the light in the exact position he or she wants, so instead arranges the shot to best capture the sunlight, perhaps after waiting for the sun to position itself just right.

 

A portrait with the key lighting: a 300 watt key light

FILL LIGHT

The fill light also shines on the subject, but from a side angle relative to the key and is often placed at a lower position than the key (about at the level of the subject's face). It balances the key by illuminating shaded surfaces, and lessening or eliminating chiaroscuro effects, such as the shadow cast by a person's nose upon the rest of the face. It is usually softer and less bright than the key light (up to half), and more to a flood. Not using a fill at all can result in stark contrasts (due to shadows) across the subject's surface, depending upon the key light's harshness. Sometimes, as in low-key lighting, this is a deliberate effect, but shots intended to look more natural and less stylistic require a fill.

In some situations a photographer can use a reflector (such as a piece of white cardstock mounted off-camera, or even a white-painted wall) as a fill light instead of an actual lamp. Reflecting and redirecting the key light's rays back upon the subject from a different angle can cause a softer, subtler effect than using another lamp.

 

 A portrait with the fill lighting: A 150 watt fill light.

 

BACK LIGHT

The back light (a.k.a. the rimhair, or shoulder light) shines on the subject from behind, often (but not necessarily) to one side or the other. It gives the subject a rim of light, serving to separate the subject from the background and highlighting contours.

Back light or rim light is different from a kick in that a kick (or kicker) contributes to a portion of the shading on the visible surface of the subject, while a rim light only creates a thin outline around the subject without necessarily hitting the front (visible) surface of the subject at all.

 

A portrait with the back lighting: A 300 watt back light

 

The addition of a fourth light, the background light, makes for a four-point lighting setup.

The background light is placed behind the subject(s), on a high grid, or low to the ground. Unlike the other three lights, which illuminate foreground elements like actors and props, it illuminates background elements, such as walls or outdoor scenery. This technique can be used to eliminate shadows cast by foreground elements onto the background, or to draw more attention to the background. It also helps to off-set the single eye nature of the camera; this means that it helps the camera give depth to the subject.

The illustration all started from a vector silhouette lady sitting by the window with an ellipse in front representing a moon

So i felt like this should look better and more interesting than it is. So I went on tweaking the hair part of the body into a pony tail hair style and also adding to the illustration a building and a glow round the moon which bounces back on the lady leaving highlights on her so the scene looks more active.

 At this stage the scene started looking appealing to the eyes and getting closer to even more than what i intend to achieve. So I pressed further by adding a hat to the illustration depicting the ladies high sense of fashion.

At this moment my love for the pony tail hair style was no more so i felt i change it to short hair. I went on changing the colour of the hat to black for uniformity in the illustration, so I thought what could be added to spice it up.

The illustration in other to keep it looking more active and also the more story about the lady. So I asked myself what if I add a lamp. Which is pretty much a good idea, I went ahead, did that and added a beam of light on top of the lamp in other to bring it to life.

But wait a minute why should the building just look like lines connecting to each other to form a shape? Come on, let breathe some life into this, lighting it up would be better and tell more about the illustration. So the first building got lit up seeming like the PHNC just brought the light. Lolz

As the night got darker all buildings downtown got lit up even the light from the moon struck of the back of the building leaving highlights at the side, the lady had to intensify the light from the lamp for better illumination and for the air plane it is probably flying to the united kingdom.

As the lamp got intensified its left highlights round the edges of the lamp and some part of the window frame plus the light from the moon that also reflected the window frame. At this point it seems the illustration is come to an end or are we missing yes the stars so let’s add that to our illustration.

So now that the scene looks so interesting and tells a story what should we title the illustration? Behind the Bars is obviously our best pick. And finally the illustration is complete HURRAY!!!

Adobe Photoshop has been in existence since 1988. This fantastic software was created by Thomas and John Knoll. This software is an industry standard for raster graphics. Motion picture editing/animation has also been implemented with the use of timeline in Adobe Photoshop.

WHAT CAN ADOBE PHOTOSHOP DO?

Initially people use Adobe Photoshop as an image editing tool. During this process, a user will be able to perform some editing work on a particular image. Users make use of Photoshop to retouch photos, remove pimples, highlight, and stray hairs, reduce bags under eyes, bloodshot eyes, lighten teeth, increase eye size and even swap out or change an image background.

Today Adobe Photoshop has gone far in functionality beyond image editing. People today use the software to do so many things. Such as:

  • Image Editing
  • Image Manipulation
  • Image Enhancement
  • Image Processing
  • Logo Designing
  • Website user interface design
  • Conceptual design
  • Digital painting
  • Timeline animation
