WIP Redshift and VDB volumes

Did a little exploration. I was demoing World Machine to my class and thought why not do something with it again. I wanted to test using VDB volumes in Redshift so why not combine the two. I’ll do another post detailing using VDB volumes. This is by far not finished but a fun exploration.

Rock Dawn

Spent a couple short bursts to mash this piece together.

I used Megascans rocks and an element from Kitbash 3d’s Egypt set.

Here’s what I came up with.

Redshift and Octane Tutorials

I love to watch tutorials on other artists workflows and tools. You never know what little kernel of awesomeness you’ll unravel. This rainy weekend I was trying out some of Jama Jurabaev’s tutorials and Steven Cormann’s new tutorial. Both artists are amazing and seeing their process unfold is a delight.

Jama’s tutorial is on gumroad (he has a bunch). But the ones I took an interest in are using Octane renderer and Blender.

To contrast that, Steven Cormann has just released his tutorial, Epic Matte Shot. He is using Redshift as his renderer. He does a great job breaking down his workflow.

If you get a chance take a look at both artists tutorials and their work. You will not be disappointed.
