  • Dolly Zoom / Vertigo Shot - made with DAZ Studio

    1,132 views 3 months ago
    I've just finished recording two new DAZ Studio episodes, in which I'll explain how to create this animation. It's a Dolly Zoom, also known as Vertigo Shot or Jaws Shot, because both Alfred Hitchcock and Steven Spielberg have used them for dramatic effect in their respective movies (among many other film makers).
    #DAZ #3D #Animation #Vertigo #Jaws

  • Creating a Logo in Blender Play all

    In this mini series I'll show you my process of creating the logo I'm using for the DAZ Studio 101 series (both the Podcast and the Youtube versions). I'll start by taking a screenshot of the logo I want to use, turn it into a path in Photoshop and then I'll import it into Blender. Here I'll extrude it, build some grass, replicate it, add materials and finally add a density map to the Particle Emitter system (which will serve as a replicator).
