Blender 2.58 and more stuff!
Good afternoon/night (here in Spain :)!
Blender 2.58 has been released! Since a few days ago we could see the new splash on the recent graphicall builds, but now it's finally official :D Hundreds of bugs have been fixed since the last version, and this is the second stable one from the 2.5x series. 2.59 is expected to be the last from this series before start adding new features and cool things on the very awaited 2.6 series! :D
Also, on this Google Summer of Code, there are some cool things in development, but... the most interesting for me is the camera tracker!! It's working already in 2d, and Sergey Sharibin (camera tracker developer) is starting the work for making the tracker work in 3d!! I can't wait to see it!
"Hologram - Complete Project" quick Status Report:
I don't want to start talking about this without telling this: THANKS A LOT to all of those who already preordered it, for showing your trust and support to me, I love you guys! You Rock!! :D
I'm already working on the voice over, and have some completed chapters :D I'm editing the videos, and commenting them at the same time :) I have a lot of work to do yet, but I expect to make the final release for end july or early on august, I'll make the "official" announcement when I'm more advanced on the project. Also, after making some tests and thinking a lot, I finally decided (almost xD) to use .mkv format for delivering the tutorial. If anyone can give me some guidelines or software (open source is prefered) for working with this format, I'd be so grateful :D
Another new that you maybe find interesting... do you know Brett Ratner? He's been director in movies like X-Men 2... the thing is that he's looking for a logo animation for "Rat Enterntainment", and will pay 1000 USD to the one selected, and the animation will be played on his movies :) People at Talent House has told me this, and I found it interesting for you, if you'd like to participate in such a "contest";) Lead to www.talenthouse.com for more info about this!
And one final thing... a quick drawing I made the last week using MyPaint and The Gimp. I just watched this new Tomb Raider Trailer and gameplay... then I started to paint while listening to the Call of Duty OST... and this is what I got xDD
That's everything for now! Thanks again to all of you supporting this page, no matter you buy tutorials, you make donations or just visit the web or share it with your friends: THANKS FOR BEING THERE!!! :D
PS: I know I know, the nipples of the girl are quite hard :P hahah ;)
