Alt soft­ware

ImagineFX - - Imagine Nation -

I run a school an­i­ma­tion club and one of my rules is that no child does some­thing in my class­room on a Fri­day lunchtime they can’t rea­son­ably do at home at the week­end in­stead. We use cheap dig­i­tal cam­eras for stop mo­tion, and Blender and Sculp­tris soft­ware.

Which brings me to my point. I’ve seen you’re start­ing a tu­to­rial se­ries on ZBrush. Great idea. But given that the pro­gram doesn’t come cheap, why don’t you opt to do one on Sculp­tris in­stead? It would be a great in­tro­duc­tion to the ideas, which ev­ery­body could then try out, re­gard­less of how much they have to spend. Andy, via email

Claire replies Thank you Andy, that’s an ex­cel­lent sug­ges­tion. ZBrush is an in­dus­try stan­dard tool, so it’s im­por­tant that we fea­ture it. How­ever, Sculp­tris looks like an af­ford­able way for artists to dis­cover 3D art tech­niques and is def­i­nitely some­thing we’ll look into fea­tur­ing in the fu­ture. What other soft­ware are read­ers us­ing that you’d like to see work­shops on? Let me know!
