Hey friends,

I have good news and bad news and then some more good news.

I'll start with the bad news: I've been away from deviantArt for a while now. A lot of work and travelling (just finished a Vue expedition in the Pacific Northwest) is keeping me busy, and I just can't seem to find the time for dA. While I have no intention of leaving, I won't be active for another couple of months here.

Okay, so now the good news, first off we have a lot of new products already published and more coming out (including the SECOND materials video and Sculpted Clouds/MetaClouds) this coming week (already out on e-on, C3D will follow on Friday). We are also posting a lot of tips, tricks, and news on our facebook page. You don't need to be a Facebook member to enjoy the page, so bookmark it! ;)

e-on software:…

And now for even MORE good news. I've been talking about my book for a long time - Realism in Vue. It is finished, and off being printed as I write this. It will be available in - dare I say it - a few weeks! :) The main place to find out more about the book, which is also the other bit of good news, is my new site ( which will be central hub for all my books (published and in the works) as well as a blog that I will be constantly updating with renders, experiments, free stuff for Vue, and more. So I highly recommend visiting it. :D

Lastly, SIGGRAPH 2010 was excellent. Got to meet some great people and see how Hollywood is using Vue. I'll be posting details (and photos) this coming week on my blog.

So, once more, I invite you to visit

I neve rheard of a metaclouds pck coming out :O I've tried with them many times but I'm never fully happy with the results. Those super-sharp bubbling cumulonimbus towers are near impossible to do even with metaclouds :doh:

To make all you out there a bit jealous: I got the opportunity to meet Dax in person at Siggraph and he's such a nice and talented guy :) You can't help but have the utmost respect for him and his work.

Ah... I was wondering where that book went =p I'll buy it for sure. I'm old fashioned, I want to read things from a book :)
nukeation Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2010
You and me both. There are some things that can never fit in nor be explained in a video. I hope you enjoy it. :)

It's great, my friend. Everything you do interests me. (I actually bought it all)
the idea of book I love. Maybe I will be rare but, have you in print is a great help. To avoid having to use over and over again the video and find where the information relevant.
I encourage you to continue taking a bit of everything. After TO ALL YOU DO IS INTERESTING!

Congratulations on your last image of Star Wars ...
It's fantastic!

Thank you so much for the kind words. And you're not alone - a LOT of people have requested training in print form. :)

I'm also working on a couple of other smaller books (which will be available as both ebook and printed).

Just bookmarked your new site. Looking forward to the book coming out soon - hopefully "a few weeks" coincides with my next pay day so I can order it straight away. :)
I'm slowly starting to catch up with your vids. Just bought Materials volume 1 and will be learning from that in order to create the best mats I can for my short movie back drops.
