Benjamin Springer over at exorbit-art.de shows off some real rendering skills with his new architectural visualization project. From Benjamin: “I finally got some pictures for the release of a project that I have some time before again driven by the way of overriding. It goes to the house of Werner Sobek S3.I have modeled the complete geometry of zero on the basis of the plans. This is just a small selection of images that are created. I intend to later be able to show even more.” Check out the shiny renders HERE or follow the link above!
Long time blog & challenges sponsor, iToo Software, created yet another very nice 3d park landscaped scene that combines distribution of grass, fallen leaves and trees with leaves tinted with the Forest Color Feature. You can download now the Autumn Park scene, ready to render on 3DS Max 2010 or higher, starting with Forest Pack Pro 3.6 and either VRay or Mental Ray.
Frank Willeke who is the mastermind behind all the content at www.c4d-jack.de has created Surface Spread, a great environment generation plug in, and it is now supported by Renderfeed. Our friends over at 3devotion.com turned us onto this great plug in. You can see some examples of how 3devotion used it in there teaser video seen HERE. Some of the features of Surface Spread includes are creating landscape scenes, distributing objects according to geological rules, generating parametric landscapes / terrains, generating parametric rocks and stones. With purchase of the plug in you get a shader for infinite color variation and a nice plant library.
We here at Renderfeed are proud to announce that we have recently become a certified render farm for the amazing rendering platform VRAYforC4D! If you are not familiar with VRAYforC4D check it out the production value it could add to any of your Cinema4D projects, VRAYforC4D. A little about VRAYforC4D from their site: “V-Ray today is one of highest quality render tools available for production. It is widely used by professional CG artists and visualizations firms worldwide. Its proven, beautiful and super realistic image quality, at unsurpassed render speed, attracts many users from all areas.”
VRAYforC4D forum user Shockwave (Marc) presents this great exploration of material generation and lighting techniques.
Render farm helps Director Thomas Kenney (www.flavr.tv) bring his vision to life for Vassy – Could this be love.
Music video director Thomas Kenney (www.flavr.tv) has utilized Renderfeed’s online render farm to create a beautiful dream scape music video for Vassy! Check out the video for Vassy – “Could this be love” HERE on youtube.
With over 80 shots requiring VFX additions, Thomas was presented with the challenge of rendering a massive amount of 3D with a very short time period. With the help of Renderfeed’s render farm Thomas was able to organize, manage, and render a huge amount of CGI.

Joseph has made his VRayStudioTools available as a free download!
He says of his new development: “VRayStudioTools are set of light rigs & studio setups & tools in a c4d library that can help you to render your objects or products without having to worry about some complex light setups & render settings in vray or cinema 4d .”
He has also gone to the lengths to make a video tutorial showing how it is used and the great results that can come of it HERE.
Renderfeed’s recent Artist Interview star, Luca Viola was kind enough to pass along some of his models that he used to make his beautiful Pac Man frames!
You can download them HERE or click on the image above, enjoy! Many thanks to Luca for his time and assets!
Another great Interior Lighting Tutorial from Envy. This time using V-Ray to get some great results.
“Aimed at beginner to intermediate users this course will go through the entire process of creating a highly realistic interior scene using Cinema 4D and VRay. We will model the environment, furniture and accessories and then move on to exploring materials, light and camera parameters, colour mapping, VRay’s various GI engines, its Image Sampler and antialiasing techniques, as well as IES lights, HDRI and Depth of Field. We will finish up by taking our final image into Photoshop for some post production techniques. The tutorial culminates in the exploration of other lighting methods including the creation of an alternative evening mood.” -Envy
Looks like Samir Kharchi over at www.dpit2.de has a new update that includes dPIT for Vray. Amazing fluid simulation plugin for Cinema4D. From Samir: “At its very core it includes a physical based fluid solver to create fire, smoke, vapor and explosion simulations. But also liquids belong to the repertoire of DPIT Effex which is the only plugin available on the Cinema 4D market that allows to generate complex water and highly viscous liquid simulations.” There is a demo available so go get your fire and water on at www.dpit2.de! Check out the demo of DPIT and VRAYforC4D on Youtube. Also check out the other goods, Plants and Rulertools.
