MAXON is the team behind Cinema 4D, one of the 3D industry’s most trusted tools for modeling and motion graphics design. Today, they announced that they’ve released an entirely new way to design and work with 3D content: Cineware for Illustrator. Their powerful new plugin allows designers to import any C4D project and tweak the camera, lights, textures and objects themselves directly within Adobe Illustrator CC. Read More
We recently connected with indie game developer and TurboSquid customer, Sjoerd “Hourences” De Jong, about his action/adventure game The Solus Project. He and his team just released a version of the game for the PS4 (with VR support!), and it has been available on both PC and Xbox One since last summer. We love talking to customers about projects that they’ve released to see how TurboSquid and our community of artists played a role in the finished product.
Over the course of this past year, many of our team members have been spending time participating in education-related initiatives. We’ve contributed to events such as the LSU student Animation Jam, the YouthForce NOLA Career Expo, and job opportunity discussions at our local community college. These events have given our team members a powerful opportunity to interact with and mentor potential future members of the industry that we love. Read More
We launched our CheckMate certification program back in 2011, and in that time we’ve hand inspected and certified over 40,000 products on TurboSquid. The spec has gone through a couple of updates over the years, but one thing that hasn’t changed much is the list of formats that we certify – 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema4D, and Lightwave. We’re happy to announce that we’ll soon be adding a new format to the mix: Blender. Read More
Exclusive TurboSquid seller zivcg published a new model last week, and everyone here at TurboSquid was very impressed. The quality is really top-notch, and definitely worth featuring in our 3D Model Spotlight series. The purchase also includes the knight’s shield and sword, and zivcg has created both “clean” and “damaged” versions of his armor.
Check it out, there are several interesting renders uploaded with the model. Read More
A new partnership between TurboSquid and Mixamo was just announced a few days ago – you can read the full details in the press release. Mixamo offers a very cool online animation service that allows you to purchase royalty-free, production-quality 3D character animations at a fraction of what they would cost to create. What’s more is that these motions can be custom tailored right on their site, with the motion playing so you can see the effects of your changes immediately. Read More
