Becks Vier Commercial Borne of Rhino, Cinema4D, V-Ray Workflow

The recent TV commercial for Becks Vier’s new square necked bottle was produced using a combination of key 3D packages.

 

The ad was created by Zeitguised, with production company Blinkink for Mother. The 20 second ad features a completely self-designed environment, incorporating original models, textures and lighting. The Becks Vier bottle was modelled in Rhino; ZBrush was then used to further texture the bottle. Cinema4D was used for animation and V-Ray for rendering.

Pixologic Releases Sculptris

Pixologic, maker of the Award-Winning ZBrush yesterday announced the latest release of Sculptris (for Windows and MAC).
For the last decade Pixologic has been recognized for its ground-breaking innovation, “cool” creativity and tools that are as user friendly as they are powerful and natural-feeling. These tools enable artists in many industries to open new vistas of possibility with their skills and imagination. The development and latest release of Sculptris is consistent with the Pixologic ethos and spirit to help artists both shine at and enjoy creating art – intuitively, without having to worry about technical barriers.
3D Sculpting and Painting Become Easy with Sculptris
Sculptris is an elegant and simple 3D modeling solution, offering artists a platform to harness their imagination and create 3D sculpts in a way that is unique to the digital world.
Tomas Pettersson, the programmer behind Sculptris commented: “I trust that, with this version, Sculptris will be more accessible for all people on both PC’s and Mac’s. Everyone should be able to sculpt!”

Sculptris introduces a dynamic tessellation system, giving its user the ability to sculpt or paint freely on any part of the surface without having to worry about the underlying geometry. With Sculptris, triangles are automatically added as needed, and only to the areas where a stroke has been applied to the surface.
Users can do just about anything that’s possible with real clay. For example, they can pull, twist and pinch the surface, easily adding volume as needed without the rigorous attention to underlying structure that is typically associated with 3D modeling programs.
Pixologic envisions Sculptris as an entry level scultping tool for a new generation of artists wishing to explore 3D sculpting and digital creation. Fun to use, it’s also a truly effective programme that can be embraced by hobbyists and professional artists, alike. For those wishing to explore further, Sculptris is seen as a perfect base upon which to build one’s skills while advancing to the substantial world of ZBrush.
