Artist in Action: Creating A Better Demo Reel With ZBrush 4

Posted on June 24, 2011 by Ernest


Pixologic’s new “Artist in Action” series presents “Creating A Better Demo Reel With ZBrush 4,” a step by step tutorial with Steve Warner, featured in the current issue of Imagine Magazine.

Generally speaking, there are two ways to land a job in the 3D industry. You can find work by who you know or you can find it by what you know, and when you’re blindly sending out copies of your demo reel in hopes of finding work, you’ll be judged solely on the latter. Steve Warner, Executive Director of the Digital Animation and Visual Effects School (DAVE School), shares 5 techniques you can use to make a better demo reel by harnessing the power of ZBrush 4.0:

1. Easy Wireframe Renders
2. Easy UV Renders
3. Easy Posing
4. Easy Animations
5. Easy Multipass Rendering

Whether you’re a new grad trying to get your reel out there or a seasoned professional looking to streamline your post-production techniques, you’ll find this in-depth step by step and video tutorial an essential read.
