is there a dedicated forum for 3D here @DVI?

now i know we probably don't have enough 3D modelers/animators/etc. to warrant one but i think there are more and more people everyday (like me) who are interested in learning 3D modeling/painting/rendering and finally compositing in visual FX into our low-budget whoo ha's.

anyone else doing that now? creating some really nice scenes in computer generated image and then integrating it into short movie?

would you like to see a forum dedicated to that with lists to tutorials and tips and such?

Hi! I'm the lead 3D artist on Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda. I've been lurking around for a while on this forum, as I'm planning to get a DVX100a. A forum for VFX and logo's might be kind of cool.

Mike

"Graphics, Animation and 3D"

I'd also like to see a forum, but I'd personally prefer a "Graphics, Animation and 3D" or something like that..

I'm trying to learn After Effects, and I'd also like to learn more about Photoshop than what I know already. It seems to me that an overall graphics forum would be very useful!

Hey Yi - how's it going? Yi came over to my Studio for a filmmakers networking party recently. Go Boston filmmakers!

If you're looking for a professional CG community, try cgnetworks.com. They have an extensive forum for just about every imaginable 3d toolset, as well as a monthly newsletter. I'm just a hobbyist, but I find a lot of useful info on the forums.

It would definitely be cool to see a forum on DVInfo devoted to DV-specific issues compositing 3d and live DV, producing eyecatches and logo sequences for DV projects, and so forth. Just a thought.

I'm a freelance video producer and CG artist in the Philadelphia area, and I'm studying/practicing to get more towards Michael's level. (Some really nice visuals in that show, BTW. I'm going to have to watch a few episodes more closely now so I can ask some semi-intellegent questions about the shots. :) )

I think it would be great to have a board here for these topics. Many of the effects and techniques can be fairly platform and (to some degree) software independant but I would agree that "CG" or "3D" would be too small of a niche for this forum.

Animation, 3D, Compositing, matte painting and much more would be fit into a broader category like "Post Production Visual Effects" or something to that effect. (no pun intended)

Well, NLE is editing.
There's a seperate board for DVD/Web.
I'm in agreement with your initial post that visual effects related post production could warrent its own board too.

I'm curious to hear how many other videographers and such here use "extra" non-editing & authoring software and techniques in their post production process.

In my own region, it seems to be very limited, if used at all, which is a bit surprising to me given what viewers are exposed to in the movies and on TV.

on the other hand we ARE a DV-focused board primarily. i think 3D, animation/compositing probably already belong to certain boards that are specifically dedicated. we're spread thin already...
