Wrecking our cover this month is Wreck-it Ralph! Ralph has found time away from the release of his latest film, Ralph Breaks The Internet to mess around with our masthead. While we get that fixed, you can hear from our regular contributor, Ian Failes, who has headed into the depths of the web to find out how Walt Disney Animation Studios has made Ralph, Vanellope and the tech even better for the sequel on page 24.
We’ve also kindly asked some animation pros this issue to tell us what we need to take our animating skills above and beyond. There are 20 incredible tips and techniques to learn from. Just head over to page 32 to see them all.
Elsewhere, James Clarke heads into the new London office of ILM London on page 38 and we look at what the future of the motion capture world holds on page 46.
We’re also learning an arch viz masterclass, how to create a hologram with Unreal Engine 4 in the style of Blade Runner 2049, making a procedural lightning storm in Houdini, mastering UVS in Blender and creating an expressive face for a character.
Enjoy the issue.
