Ripple Creative Group Turns to NVIDIA Quadro and PNY
Communicating what's in the mind's eye of an architect or interior designer can be daunting, especially for large, unusual, or groundbreaking projects. Ripple Creative Group has built its business around visualizing building and real estate projects in such exquisite and accurate detail that anyone can see what the built project will actually look like. Their latest project, using one massive file for design and edits, not only let Ripple achieve the 100% paperless design/build process criteria for the ABC Green House virtual tour, it completely revamped the way they work, establishing a more efficient graphics pipeline that has become their new standard.

iStopMotion for iPad
iStopMotion for iPad
Last year, I wrote about the fun application called iStopMotion by Boinx.com. In returning to iStopMotion on iPad, I'm glad to see that the app has gone through many changes and upgrades. Most recently, Boinx has announced the ability to export up to 200 frames in an animated GIF! It's not only a fun application to have as an animator, but it's a teaching opportunity too. When I teach older animation students, they usually understand the importance of timing and number of frames per second. At home with my kids, iStopMotion for iPad is a fun way to craft stories and express creativity. For both older students and young kids, iStopMotion is an accessible way to start making stop motion animations right away. Read More

Whether we are directors, directors of photography, visual effects coordinators, animators, or other creatives who discuss what the composition of a frame might look like, this is your rosetta stone.
