A small group of developers is meeting this afternoon in Amsterdam at the Blender Institute to discuss requirements for Gooseberry. From left to right: Monique Dewanchand, Francesco Siddi, Yours truly, Lukas Tönne, Brecht Van Lommel, Antony Riakiotakis and just outside the picture there’s Jeroen Bakker. Ton took the picture :) We’re discussing the Redcurrant asset management/project management/collaboration tools, the animation and physics pipeline, the rendering and compositing pipeline and whatever else catches our attention (which tends to be a lot ;-)
Cícero Moraes is doing some seriously cool forensic reconstruction work with Blender – I’ve featured a lot of his work. Earlier this week, he presented his work on Brazilian television channel Bom Dia. Congratulations, Cícero!
David Andrade from Theory Animation takes us through creation process of Ray and Clovis.
BlenderDiplom talks to Thomas Dinges on his Open Shading Language work in Cycles. They also look to the future and discuss OSL support in other renderers.
