☕ CGI News February — New Light Mix — Image Comp Helper Update + more 📰 — Luxury Visuals


Arnold Renderer Now Has Light Mix

Arnold 6.2 for 3ds Max has been released and has some interesting new features. Namely light mix, denoiser and bloom amongst other improvements.

Other than on the modelling course we are yet to explore Arnold Render engine. Is anybody here using Arnold, should I make some videos on it? It does come packaged with 3ds Max and is a solid render engine.

Image Composition Helper Updated

I am a big fan of image comp helper and I was happy to hear that The Faction CGI updated the original script by Christoph Buelter. Image composition helper adds overlays to your 3ds Max viewport to aid composition.

Download the updated script from The Faction CGI’s website.


“if you want to build habits that last, join a group where the desired behaviour is the normal behaviour.

— James Clear, Atomic Habits

The student group continues to grow in both size and quality of work. Some highlights included Graeme Strutt’s first 360 product spin and Rahul Kp published some impressive work.
