Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English.

Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable.

If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet.

It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.

Retratos no MODO 3D

Uma rápida entrevista com Alberto Ezzy, generalista 3D, sobre sua série de oito tutoriais que irão revelar suas técnicas e segredos na produção de imagens personagens realísticos.

336_tid_Fisherman

Alberto Ezzy é um talentoso artista 3D e atualmente atua como freelancer na Bélgica. Suas tarefas diárias incluem desde a modelagem, texturização e iluminação até fotografia de texturas fotográficas, experiências com renderização e diferentes estágios de pós-produção de seus projetos utilizando Nuke e Photoshop.

Alberto Ezzy está trabalhando numa série de tutoriais para a 3Dtotal, cobrindo todo o processo de criação de dois personagens do seu projeto “retratos populares” utilizando os softwares MODO e MARI: “O Pescador” e “minha amiga Kiwi”. “Nestas imagens tentarei explorar alguns processos de “pele” e “cabelo” no MODO que eu nunca tinha experimentado antes”, explica Alberto.

Ao longo de oito tutoriais, Alberto revela técnicas e segredos de seu workflow para um bom trabalho de iluminação no MODO, bem como dicas e truques para a criação de uma boa textura de pele (skin shader) e a configuração de cabelos (hair & fur). Ele também vai mostrar como podemos obter um realismo convincente em modelos 3D digitalizados, além de mostrar como o MARI se encaixa no fluxo de trabalho 3D. Os tutoriais também vai abordar como combinar diferentes Render Outputs do MODO para posterior pós-produção e ajustes finos no Photoshop.

336_tid_Male_Modo

A Ten24 forneceu 2 modelos 3D escaneados para Alberto trabalhar neste processo. Foi como “conhecer alguém”, sugere. “Ao abrir o modelo você começa a pensar: De onde você é? O que você faz na vida? Na versão masculina senti um melancólico pescador, velho, mas ainda forte. Já a feminina me sugeriu uma mochileira, talvez em uma viagem na Nova Zelândia!” Meus objetivos artísticos foram “menos é mais. Eu queria que os detalhes e a pele fossem o centro das atenções. Eu tentei um brinco para o pescador e uma tatuagem para a garota, mas não funcionaram pois eram pontos de distração. Eu também decidi usar e explorar duas configurações diferentes de iluminação: Physical Sun para o pescador e Studio Lighting para a menina”.

Para criar essas duas imagens incríveis, Alberto utiliza o MODO 3D e o MARI (ambos da The Foundry) para modelagem, escultura, iluminação, texturização e o Adobe Photoshop para pós-produção e pequenos ajustes finais. “Quanto ao hardware explorei a potência, qualidade e velocidade de uma AMD FirePro W9000, que superou com facilidade a exigência de ambos os trabalhos sem nenhum aborrecimento. Os modelos 3D digitalizados são bem pesados, se você precisar fazer ajustes e testes na escultura e posteriormente adicionar coisas como cabelos, ambientes e iluminação realística então você precisa de uma placa gráficas de alto desempenho”.

336_tid_zzzz_AMD-FirePro-W9000-360W

A AMD criou uma das mais poderosas placas gráficas disponíveis atualmente no mercado. A W9000 permite a GPU processar os dados de geometria a uma taxa de duas vezes por ciclo de clock que, além de acelerar e garantir a precisão dos seus cálculos, também permite o uso de enormes arquivos de texturas – com até 32TB de tamanho.

No entanto, Alberto nem sempre usou MODO. “Há muito tempo atrás, eu utilizava o LightWave e raramente o 3DMax, mas quando o MODO foi lançado, foi amor à primeira vista!” declara. “É um software muito intuitivo e divertido. Para mim, isso é muito importante – ser divertindo! Eu não gostava de modelar antes de conhecer o MODO, mas agora eu amo! E o que falar sobre ver o resultado final realístico em poucos segundos no Render Preview? Oh meu deus, aquilo é incrível!”.

Para Alberto, compartilhar técnicas com a comunidade não poderia ser mais inspirador. “É ótimo e muito gratificante fazer parte de grupos e fóruns”, diz ele. “Eu particularmente admiro o fato de que pessoas estejam dispostas a doar seu tempo gratuitamente para te ajudar caso tenha uma pergunta ou um problema. O número de gênios trabalhando neste setor é impressionante e também tenho muita admiração e respeito pelos programadores que criam estes softwares fantásticos que usamos todos os dias!”
