Searching for the Best Monitor Displays for Motion Design and 3D - Featured

A back-and-forth journey to find the perfect new displays for 3D artists and motion designers.

If you think shopping for new PC is difficult, try shopping for a new computer display.

I’ve been rocking two displays for quite some time now, one NEC PA271w-bk as my main and a ViewSonic VP2780-4K for 4K reference. I knew my displays were starting to show their age and it was time to upgrade, but deep down inside I was dreading the process.

The Dell U3818DW is definitely wide.

I lugged this beast home and quickly set it up. The screen was even in terms of color and lighting and after staring at it closely for a few minutes I determined there were no dead pixels. With much excitement I went right into Cinema 4D and completely redesigned my layout so that I could take full advantage of such awesome screen real estate. Everything was working great. Read More
