Free Blender Workshop in Paris this Saturday

Francois “CoyHot” Grassard will be creating this scene during a 2.5 hour session in Paris this Saturday. He needs 30 signups though to ensure that the event can happen!

Hope you’re fine. Just a quick E-Mail because i’m in the rush … as usual .. :o)

Next Saturday in Paris, France, I’ll make a conference about the FX pipeline in Blender (about 2 hour and a half).

The purposes of this conference are :

  • Cycles
  • 3D Tracking
  • Lightning using IBL (Mirror Ball)
  • Mocap
  • Compositing to integrate Iron Man into the original shot

The most important information is that you have to register to be there ! The organizer just tell me that … a few minute ago ! It’s … ridiculous.

The conference is in only 3 days and we don’t have enough registered people (of course … nobody knows they have to register). The main organizer tell me that we can propably cancel it if we don’t have more registered people. Damn it ! The full project is already done !

So … i was asking myself how to tell to the world that we will make this conference and … finally i thought about Blender Nation ! Even if the conference is in French … I think it could be cool to make a post about that. At least for the finished video …. :o) Let me know what is you’re feeling about that.

I know it’s a really quick request but I’m really nervous to know that the conference could be cancelled 2 days before it take place.


It looks like you're using an ad blocker. I really need the income to keep this site running, so please enable advertisements on BlenderNation, or leave me a small donation. Everything helps!

Thanks!

    I can’t find the link to subscribe on the page of the conference? And on the home page it says “free entry” ?

  • coyhot

    Thank you Kikko …. I just saw that the Organizer put the registering page offline ! I’m going crazy ! But if he do that, it’s probably because he have enough people to maintain the conference.

    Sorry for that … and thank you Bart for your help !

    The conference will be record and I’ll put it online soon. Even if it will be in French … I hope it will be interesting for everyone.

    Thanks again for all !

      Maybe it’s a good idea if everyone who wants to go indicates so in a comment here. That way you have a fallback mechanism.

  • kikko

    Sweet!
    Actually that post helped to me find out about the event that I didn’t know was happening! So it will probably will inform others!See you on saturday!

    It seems like you need to send an e-mail to [email protected] if you wish to attend it.
    As for me, I’ll be there. Looking forward to seeing Coyhot for real, at last !

    Nice work! Don’t know what it is but he looks slightly drunk, so right on character!

  • chromemonkey

    That cyberguy has some seriously funky strutting going on!  Dah Funka-saurus Rex!

  • coyhot

    –> Peter : Lol  …. You’re right, I used a BVH file from http://www.mocapdata.com/  who was named “drunk”. I think the name is really … explicit ! :o)

    • Guest

       thanks for not using this one: http://www.mocapdata.com/product.cgi?product_id=1002

      :D

      • coyhot

         Lol … nice one to make the audience laughing ! I keep it on my hard drive and I’ll apply it on Iron Man after the conference take place … :o)  Just for fun !

          I’m sure this one will look hilarous! Could you please post a render with that mocap file apllied on your vimeo channel? (Just for fun :) )

    Great video. I have not yet done matchmoving with Blender for my own, but I did few in the past with SynthEyes and the exporter for Blender. I am really impressed by the ability of Blender Tracking system to work with shaky video shots !
    Excellent work.

  • Dingo

    Why is the footage so shaky? looks terrible

    • Rlocatellidigital

       Actually, it’s like this to demonstrate how camera-track works, integrating real footage with Blender elements. But it’s a bit too much, I agree…

    • Colin Griffith

       Makes it look crappy as an actual shot. But it’s basically like technical porn when you see how well it handles the shakiness.

      Enjoy it.

  • Rkt2u

    there’s one critical point, the shadow below the feets “it looks darker”

  • Drew42

    /I/ want to go to Paris and learn how to track and mocap Iron Man.

    (can’t happen though, this time.  Minnesota VS. my budget.  I think a neat “bucket-list” would be to take a season or two and travel to random Blender meetings—travel+Blender-heads is a win-win)
    jus-sayin.

    • CorsairX

       I’m liking how you think!

    If you go to the meeting please upload a video so international users can watch it too afterwards.

      I don’t usually respond to automated posts like this. But this has got to be the DUMBEST one ever. Seriously, it should just be left here just as an example of how NOT to make a web bot.

      • WorstBlenderdeal

         Now we need a bot that likes your awesome comment! :)

      • chromemonkey

        What did it say?

        • NRK

          It was a bot selling blenders, literal blenders, the ones you stick food into.  I totally cracked up when I read it, I thought it was a joke.

          • roofoo

            Wait, is this site not all about food blenders? Dang, I’m in the wrong place.
