  • Cool video dude, but forgive me for asking, but do you have a snoring cat in the room or somebody tied up in the wardrobe ? 😉 There’s a peculiar moaning/snoring sound every now and again…

  • Awesome as usual EJ!

  • fantastic video! however is there a way to do this without the hdri plugin?

  • Hi EJ! I have a problem, what if my ballons caps separates from the seam when i do “Dress O matic” thing? Thank you!

  • Hi EJ!
    when i use text or numbers in extrude the number or text is not fat enough for some reason

  • Is there a way to record this as an animation? From a solid object to a balloon version of itself?

    The finished result works really well on a model of a building, which I am making a scene for projection-mapping show for someones wedding, animating the building turning into a balloon of itself would be sooooooo goood 🙂

  • Hey!
    How can I get the HDRI plug in or is there any other way to this without it? Thank you!

  • Hi How can I get the HDRI plugin?
