VFX Townhall

FX Townhall Meeting

-They recorded the FX Townhall Meeting and put it up on YouTube.

If you can't watch all 2.5 hours of it, FX Guide has a nice roundup of the events.

-Houdini 12.5 and Mari 2 were released yesterday.  You can see details here and here.

-I came across a fantastic math talk yesterday.  After watching it, I got mad (again) about the way math is taught in school.  Highly recommended:

CASO-State of Visual Effects in Ontario

CASO is a association that represents the Computer Animation and Visual Effects studios in Ontario.  On Friday March 8th, they held a meeting to discuss the state of the industry in Ontario.  Authority VFX has posted a recording of the meeting on their website.

I found the entire thing fascinating to listen to.  If you work in VFX in Toronto, you should definitely listen to what the studio owners think of the recent issues.
