In this tutorial we are going to use 3ds Max to create a 3d environment from a photo. This is often used for Visual FX and matte painting.
For this Tutorial I will use this Image from pxleyes photography contest Farm Country.

In this video tutorial for 3ds max, we’ll see how we can create some good looking energy particle fluids for motion graphics using Particle Flow and Krakatoa. We’ll prepare a particle setup with PFlow to follow a simple primitive animated using a Path Constraint, with this setup we’ll create two different particle layer with different look, on similar to a fluid, and the other one similar to lines made of energy. We’ll render it using Krakatoa and a simple basic lighting setup and then finalize it in Combustion.

Many people ( including me) always were unsatisfied with the way 3ds Max handles viewport switching. Even more people got upset after the general viewport switching logic completely changed with ( as far i remember ) Max 2010. Many even suspected a bug in the new Max release, as lots of threads on The Area and elsewhere show.
The collimator is a Soft that lets you change colors, textures and lights in 3D rendered images preserving GI, reflections and refractions. It also exports the variations for the client to access the Internet.
The site 3dtotal published a great 3D Total Making of this military vehicle created in 3ds max,where the author give good tips on modeling, texturing, lighting and rendering with V-Ray.

The Blender Foundation and online developer community is proud to present Blender 2.60. This is the beginning of the Blender 2.6x series, targeted at including all work that happened in branches or patches past years.
Most notable in this release is 3D audio, UI translation, improved weight painting and a lot of animation system updates. Check the list below for highlights and the full changelog.
Not far off the Somali coast one of the big Vestel cargo vessels is taken over by pirates! Within a split of a second the ship has a new captain, the soup is gone as well as the cargo itself. Will our Vestrons be able to strike back?
