Guys! We need "Favorites" tab here on 80.lv
My motivation wasn't to knock Cem, not as a person nor as a developer. As I said, "this is cool, no doubt about that". I was sharing my personal opinion about the price-point for a material that is so expensive (performance-wise), and pointing out the fact that the same look can be achieved for cheaper (both performance and wallet-wise). I personally find it hard to budget 10s of dollars for a single material, a single effect, etc., but that's me. Other people have money pouring out of their ears and can afford to play like that. The internet is getting less friendly as far as opening dialogues like this. People should be able to have opinions and share them, debate them, without being told to hush up and move along. I hope others buy and use this asset- I'd be curious to see how it stacks up to alternatives out there (again, as I said "I love options"). As far as making my own assets and releasing articles here? It's in the works. And if somebody came along and started a dialogue about issues, opinions they had, or whatever- I would be happy to engage them!
Check out a very fast and easy-to-use tool for building 3D models of faces or heads based on photos called FaceBuilder. This plugin for Foundry Nuke is a part of KeenTools suite.
Here is the official description of some of the other features of KeenTools:
Accurate object tracking right in Nuke
Currently it works with rigid objects only, but later it’ll support deformable meshes tracking as well.
GeoTracker is developed using low level Nuke’s C++ API. That’s why it pretty seamlessly integrates into your familiar workflow. GeoTracker supports all OS and all versions of Foundry Nuke since 8.0.
Scene-based camera tracking
Camera Focal Length Estimation
Camera focal length heavily affects tracking and that’s why it should be known. But sometimes you have to deal with footage which is shot with unknown lens. Don’t worry — GeoTracker helps you to figure it out.
Fast model positioning via dragging points
