i realized that you’re on a mac, and yet you have that GTX 1080 running and an octane render. what a set up. i was looking for it but never found any tutorial about using external GPU on an imac. I always watch your tutorial simply because the explanation is very clear. i watched all those tutorials but when it comes to rendering it always end up using octane. i wanna learn octane so bad ,but again i’m on imac with Radeon.

DigitalCreations2012 says:

I was attracted to this because EJ used it. I’m trying to adapt it to real life in forming new relationships. Did i mention it was a great tutorial.

No time to watch now but looks great, EJ! Keep up the great work – best wishes!

Brian Struble says:

Great tutorial as always! My question is this – I’ve added two moText objects into my demo scene, but they’re rendering almost black with some lights in my Octane live view window. Any suggestions on how to keep the objects underneath the shrink wrap from going dark? Thx!

Lokesh JB says:

Was just wondering how to go about it for a render today! Thank you for this EJ!

Thomas Hovgaard says:

How about some advanced hard surface modeling.

Господин Хороший says:

Hi, EJ. Good tutorial! What’s your computer with a GTX 1080 (+octane) video card and all this on MacOs???

Kay Moon says:

I wish there will be a tutorial next time, about how to make pom pom from cheeleader. please.

Nathatham Rojanusorn says:

I love you!!! Thank you very much!

Ya know, you should really build yourself a nice PC/Windows machine and get rid of that Mac 😛 Thanks for the tutorial!

Дмитрий Петухов says:

You are the best! Love from Russia

IDMOJ says:

Holy Shoot, dope technique man. Thank you.
Also just completed your YUM Tutorial (Walking Through Fields: Using Fields with Volumes
), I do think you should work more often with Cinversity.

wilco says:

Very Nice tut EJ! Q: Do u think Octane is better than Arnold or Redshift? I mean, i saw u did prepare a light o GI scene, that´s right?
