Well, small/medium intuos pro is way cheaper that iPad Pro + pencil... just saying... And it works better with ZBrush...

It might ultimately be proof of concept now, but the point of showing a low-count bounce raytracing that still looks decent especially after denoising gives us a nice roadmap on the future. Maybe given time, we will move to this as the new standard or at least a probable alternate to baked lighting.

Fuck you I'm stuck in some bullshit game some dickhead thought would be exciting.

2018 Sci-Tech Awards Honour Houdini
11 February, 2018

Patrick Stewart hosted this year’s annual Scientific and Technical Awards ceremony, an untelevised dinner at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. The actor joined many talents for a three-hour program to honour “film magicians” and present nine awards for hardware and software innovations, along with three Oscar statuettes. Two of the Oscars went to the creator and developer of the Houdini visual effects and animation system. Mark Elendt and Side Effects Software won an Oscar for 25 years of work on the program. 

That’s how it happened:

Patrick Stewart presents an Academy Award of Merit to Mark Elendt and Side Effects Software for the creation and development of the Houdini visual effects and animation system. Kim Davidson and Mark Elendt accept the award.
