    Greyscalegorilla, Chicago C4D, and Maxon US are proud to present Half Rez 2014. Yep, it’s that time again in Chicago. This is our Third Half Rez event and it will be our biggest one yet.

    Last year, we had to turn people away at the door, so this year we wanted to be sure there was enough room for everyone to hang out, meet, greet, learn, and party. Visit for more details and to register.

    What Is Half Rez?

    We started Half Rez to bring together 3D and 2D artists, animators and designers for a night of learning, drinking and hanging out.

    We have presentations planned from local designers and tons of fun games and prizes to give away. Come hang out with like minded folks and let’s us celebrate our craft and learn from each other the fun way. Check out the videos below from the last two years to get a vibe of what Half Rez will be like.

    Head on over to our official HalfRez page to register. There you will find the details for the show and by signing up, it will let everyone know who is coming and also help us out to make sure we have enough food there for everyone. Did I mention there will be free food to soak up the beer?

    OK, so who’s coming?

  5. HDRI Studio Pack Update For R16 17 Comments

    We made a new download of HDRI Studio Pack just for R16 users. If you use R16 and HDRI Studio Pack, you can download a new version at our Updates Page right away. Watch the video above to see what is new in the R16 version.

    What Has Changed?

    1. We fixed a Floor Reflection bug that some people have been getting with R16. Now floor reflection works perfectly.

    2. We changed the way scene files load into the scene in this new version. Now, new HDR Rigs are brought in to a separate scene file instead of coming in the current scene. This isn’t an ideal workflow, but it fixes a texture problem that Cinema 4D has.

    3. We also included new R16 Animation and Still presets that work exclusively with the new Reflectance channel.
