Iron Sky Model and Scene Pack Vol. Three

Iron Sky Model and Scene Pack Vol. Three, features two very special ships from the feature film “Iron Sky”. First up, the Russian “Mir” which is a proverbial kit bash if there ever was one in science fiction, the “Mir” from Iron Sky is it. A reflection of the horrific (if not always fully of surprises) state of Soviet and later Russian Federation space programs this ship combines what was supposed to the “burn up and splashdown” re-entry disposed of space station of Taco Bell publicity stunt fame from aRead More

You will also notice that we have re-enabled the “forums” that existed here briefly as a site trip after we had toRead More


Doh! Black Friday came early!!? No wait! It’s this week you silly kat!

Ok so in my crazy race to get this Christmas movie out the door for a local production company here in Las Vegas, I inadvertently forgot which freaking week Thanksgiving and Black Friday/Cyber Monday fall on. Chalk it up to trying to bash out a huge amount of 4K resolution, rotoscoping heavy shots in 10 days after the production company came back from the American Film Market and needed it all done by.. well.. today (last shot is rendering off now). So, schedules being sideways and all that, the L3DRead More

Advanced TurbulenceFD for LightWave Concepts and Projects: Propulsion

In this video (which is actually two tutorials in one) Kelly “Kat” Myers shows you how to create two separate types of propulsion effects using TurbulenceFD for LightWave3D. First up, a PAC-3 Missile launcher effect is produced using a freely available model (included) of a Patriot missile battery system. Second, an afterburner effect similar to that which you would see on an F-18 combat fighter jet. Kat takes it further though by showing you how to convert TurbulenceFD’s native BCF cache data file to OpenVDB so they can be used withRead More
