Discover the new features of 3D-Coat 4.0

Posted by 3dnews on April 17, 2013

Pilgway has posted a new video tour of the main toolsets in 3D-Coat, its voxel sculpting and topology package, including some of the tools developed during the open beta of 3D-Coat 4.0.

We rounded up the new features from the start of the open beta period here: notably, the option to paint directly onto voxel sculpts, and LiveClay: a new dynamic tessellation system similar to ZBrush’s DynaMesh.

Since then, VoxLayer and VoxExtrude, which create new geometry from the surface of a model – useful for clothing or armour – have been improved, and there have been updates to the painting and UV mapping tools.

Two-Day Roller Coaster Ends Delivers L.A. VFX Studio to Indian Owners

Posted by 3dnews on April 3, 2013


After a see-saw auction that lasted most of two days and nights, a holding company connected to Prana Studios has agreed in principle to acquire bankrupt visual effects studio Rhythm & Hues.

Prana is a visual effects and animation studio with offices in Los Angeles and India. It was founded as an American company but does much of its animation production through an Indian subsidiary.

Prana appeared to be out of the auction Wednesday afternoon but re-entered the bidding following a continuance in the proceedings Thursday. Prana has solid relationships with the majors, as it does animation for studio features. Its credits include “Hoodwinked” for the Weinstein Co. and the upcoming “Planes” for Disney.

The auction turned out to be a difficult and drawn-out process. Early on in the process, Psyop and a Taiwanese bidder with ties to electronics manufacturer Foxconn could not or would not show proof of financing, and were eliminated. Three bidders remained: Prana, Prime Focus and Brave Vision, a Chinese company led by Jiang Yanming, a founder of vfx & post facility Technicolor Beijing, and co-founder, president and largest shareholder of China Lion.

Prana was the next to fall out, it seemed, and Prime Focus and China Lion continued the auction into the night. At around 10:00 p.m. Wednesday it appeared Jiang’s bid had won, but then the auction resumed and continued until 2:00 a.m. Thursday, then broke until late morning.
