Good news gang!

Figured since there was so much positivity floating around on the forums of late-

I just wanted to share with everyone here that recently things have been looking up at work for me!

I came into the company (large, international company) having to battle upstream to break misconceptions about 3D. They had no dedicated 3D person and all the 3D was created by the Industrial Design Dept (which I am apart of currently) with Keyshot.. No concern for quality of renders, nothing was lit at all... They threw the model in a default HDRI, clicked a button and thought that was all there was to 3D and rendering.

After 6 months of breaking their illusions that Keyshot was a production tool, I finally got some traction and got Maya hooked up as our production tool. Been working hard since then to balance transitioning from Keyshot/Rhino renders to Maya/Vray (we have 450 products and everything was a mess).

Just recently I was charged with purchasing Phoenix FD and now Deadline by Thinkbox. Work is starting to get the hint that there is some far out stuff that can be done with CG and I'm on the ground level of it right now. Next fiscal year we will be investing 6k more into our render farm. This only has potential to grow here.

Wanted to share. Thanks team. Thanks for all the help along the way.

I'm British. I don't like good news. Tell me another story involving sadness.

Glad to hear it Clayton. Please make your cheque payable to Maxforums Ltd. You can also set up a direct debit for monthly payments to keep us green. Or else, y'know, it'll be kneecaps n shit.

That's a nice render farm you got there. It would be a shame if something happened to it...
