CG Talks podcast season 3 has just started!


#1

Hi guys!

We have just started the third season of the CG Talks podcast. The first two episodes were mostly news, so I thought I would post the third one, ‘Fringes of CG’.

In the far reaches of the CG animation world, beyond the reach of mainstream pop culture, dwells some pretty incredible and sometimes batshit crazy content. Join us as we descend into the surreal landscapes of out-of-the-box creators, and reexamine our perception of Art and Creativity!

Before listening I encourage you to check the resource links – there is a lot of weird stuff to watch.

CG talks S03E03: Fringes of CG

We have just finished recording the next episode with Vaughan Ling as a guest. Tutor, modeler, concept artist and creator of Heavypaint painting application. You can get more info about him from his Youtube channel - HEAVYPOLY

So stay tuned for the next episode! :blush:

CG talks S03E04: Spiders heavier than paint - interview with Vaughan Ling | Heavypoly

In this episode of CG Talks - the podcast where CG guys talk about CG, we are privileged to chat with Vaughan Ling - 3d artist, the teacher also known as Heavypoly.
Vaughan, DJ, Marco, and Michał(aka Andrew) discuss Vaughan’s recent app development endeavor with Heavypaint. An Interview with Vaughan could not go without mentioning his impressive input to Oscar-winning feature film animation “Into the Spiderverse” and other successful projects.
What open source tools like Godot Engine and Blender mean for his workflow? Can one take an unorthodox path in UI design and succeed? Is there life for an artist without undo? Answers to these questions might just be found in this exciting but also laid-back podcast episode!

Hey

Andrew here from GarageFarm.NET Academy

We released new episodes from our podcast. Check them out, I think they may be interesting. As always we added lots of interesting links to CG topics we mentioned during the convo. You can find some interesting sources there.

Here are the new episodes:

CG talks S03E05: Your favourite part of the 3D workflow is…?

In this episode of CG Talks DJ and Marco discuss the stuff they enjoy most in the whole 3d workflow. While everyone seems to hate UV unwrapping, it is not that obvious what actually is the most fun and satisfying thing to do in the vast 3d graphics world.

Modeling, sculpting, scene layout or lighting, or just obsessively tweaking the render settings parameters - it is all up to one’s tastes and preferences.

CG talks S03E06: Old and new generations in the 3d industry

In this special episode, DJ introduces Amiel - our young and talented content creator, who does Substance Suite-related tutorials for Garagefarm.NET Academy. With Marco and Andrew taking a short break (no worries they’ll be back soon) we dive into the personal experiences of older and younger generations in the CG industry.

How was it back then when books were still a viable option for learning 3d?
Are the times easier for young artists nowadays? Can plenty be a curse? Was PBR shading always a standard, and how to adopt the new when you are used to old ways of working? Are technical constraints good for creatives or is it better when things happen at a click of a mouse?

CG talks S03E07: Unreal Engine 5 Early Access | GarageFarm

In this episode, DJ, Andrew, and Amiel talk about Unreal Engine 5, what it means for the industry, and answer one of the biggest questions for 3D artists: Is Unreal Engine 5’s real-time ray tracing going to replace traditional renderers?

It’s a hot news topic and it’s worth checking if you share guys impressions, hopes and worries.

If you have any topics or guests you would like t hear about let us know in the comments. We ill try to record episodes based on your suggestions.

Have fun listening!

Hey guys.

New episode just released.

CG talks S03E08: Epic acquires Artstation

In this episode Marco, Amiel and DJ are discussing the ins and outs of latest Epic Games’ acquisition of Artstation.

Is Epic the upcoming Big Brother of 3D Industry? What is their strategy? What’s in it for a simple 3d artist? Should we rejoice or fear?
These questions along with numerous digressions about a healthy lifestyle in a digital world, monopolies, imperial and metric systems, and many others fill this entertaining episode.
What happened to Star Wars when Disney bought the franchise. Is freebie giveaway enough to change people’s habits?

If you have suggestions about a topic you would like to hear about, or particular guests you find interesting, let us know in the comments. We will try to put together episodes based on your requests.
Have fun listening!

Andrew
