We catch up with Jakub Cech about his beautiful new film exploring computer graphics as an artistic medium. The film premiered at Academy Days X in Venice last October, with a follow on talk about it in Kyjev.
We talk about how it came to be, the processes that went into creating it, as well as how “CGI is the new painting, sculpture and photography in one artistic medium”.
Back in July 2016, we spoke with Portuguese 3D studio Okdraw about the OhPorto Apartment Hotel project (which included some before, during, and after photos of the work as well as renders). Now, over three years later, we caught up with Hugo Ferreira and Pedro Teixeira to see what has been happening at the studio in that time!
Toward the end of last year, Swiss film and animation studio Guave Motion released their “Economy is Care” animation, aiming to encourage people to ask questions about the current state of the economy, and delivered with a distinctive rendering style. We spoke with CEO and 2D/3D Generalist David Fritsche about how the project came to be, and how they created it!
Corona Renderer 4 introduced a whole new way of calculating caustics – but are they practical for use in actual production scenes? And what about in animations?
London-based architectural & design visualization studio Recent Spaces are always on the look-out for the ultimate in photo-realism, so their artist Tobias Grendelmeier did some testing to find out and shared their findings with us.
We’re pleased to announce the release of Corona Renderer 5 for 3ds Max! This release focuses mostly on optimizations, saving both memory and render times for general rendering, and more specifically for displacement and caustics.

We spoke with 3D artist Lê Anh Nhân about what went into the making of his recent set of Chicago High Rise renders. Just how much was 3D, and how much backplates or photography? Read more below, you may be surprised!
It’s good to make new friends, but it’s great to meet up with old friends and catch up on what has been going on! Almost exactly two years ago, back in 2017, we had the pleasure of presenting a company profile of Valentinstudio, a 3D agency based in Lyon, France. We caught up with them to hear about what has changed in those 2 years, and see some of their latest projects!
