Volume Caustic Sample Scenes

Training events & User Group meetings

 

There are a few events coming up that I wanted to mention because there's some great mental ray training to be had at both events.  One event is EUE (End User Event) in Utrecht, The Netherlands and the other event is a Northern Illinois AAUGA event.

2009 Sample Scenes

First blog post of 2009!  Figured I'd start this year by looking back and sharing some sample files like I used to do "back in the day".  These aren't anything really special, just some files that might be useful for deconstructing or whatever.
