Preview of new nature scene by Howie Farkes

Now that Howie Farkes is back in business, he is hard at work with another new nature scene.
This time it looks like a larger set than usual, with snowy mountains in the background and a lush
forest in the foreground, take a look at the preview images below:

“A different view of the alpine scene last seen as a WIP – very nearly finished now.
Terrain made with GeoControl2 everything else is Carrara.”

New Carrara plugin: DCG Importer, a sequence OBJ Importer

New Carrara plugin: DCG Importer, a sequence OBJ Importer

Digital Carvers Guild has released a new Carrara plugin called: DCG Importer:
“The DCG Importer lets you render simulations and animations from your favorite 3D tools that export sequenced OBJs.”

A description from Eric Winemiller at Digital Carvers Guild:
“It will import sequenced OBJ versions of anything the built in Wavefront OBJ importer will do. By only keeping one frame in memory at a time, it lets Carrara handle large or long running animations.”

One use case is exporting a fluid dynamic simulation from Blender (free) or RealFlow (expensive) into Carrara, the Youtube below shows the result.

Get the trial or buy the full version at: http://www.digitalcarversguild.com/plugin.php?ProductId=21

More info about Realflow here: http://www.realflow.com/
More info about Blender fluid simulation here: http://www.blender.org/development/release-logs/blender-240/fluids-simulation/
