when pixar opens its code

it ends up with opensubdiv, running on all desktop platforms! SUPER easy to install and to compile! git clone cd OpenSubdiv/ mkdri bin cd bin cmake -G Xcode -D NO_PTEX=1 -D NO_DOC=1 \ -D NO_OMP=1 -D NO_TBB=1 -D NO_CUDA=1 -D NO_OPENCL=1 -D NO_CLEW=1 \ -D GLFW_LOCATION=”YOUR GLFW INSTALL LOCATION” \ make enter in the

Softskinned & articulated platypus

After several hours of adjustments in blender, platypus has now more control points. As shown in the image above, mesh is controlled by invisible edges, acting as rubber bands. Playing a bit longer with group shrink and control points, and the model is really changing shape Model used is the Platypus from William Reynish under

Softskinned platypus

After nearly 9 month of inactivity, the development of softskin is back on tracks. Softskin is a module inspired by tensegrity for godot engine (what else?). Demo video:

Isabelle Arvers’s first godot machinima

So proud to present the first machinima made by the french artist Isabelle Arvers with GodotEngine! What I super enjoyed with Godot is that in less than 4 hours and the help of François, I was able to create an abstract sea with the colors of the sun and the sky, as well as the

4D specialist Marc ten Bosch

Marc ten Bosch seems to be particularly interested in the 4th dimension, its narrative & interaction potential. He has made several releases, see below for all links. main website & blog: :, 4D Toys: Miegakure: Youtube channel: The game is based on tesserakt 4d engine, a custom game engine. The

Ray Marching implementaion

Demo of an implementation of ray marching by SebLague. Possibilities are tremendous, especially for boolean operations and object blending. Definitely something to test in Godot! repository:

Marble Marcher by CodeParade

CodeParade proposes an very interesting game/game engine that uses a smart physics computation related to fractal rendering. The result is Marble Marcher, an opensource (GPL-2!) game, available on and github. download on (windows only): compile the source:

UI for rotation editing #2

First prototype of a widget to edit 3d rotation via a 2d plane. The 3 buttons below the gradient allows plane selection ( XY, YZ or ZX ).The black area in the Y axis is a constrain ( between 90° and 270° ). Still a lot of stuff to be done, like the processing of

3D face tracking (state-of-the-art)

I’ve spend my day testing several face tracking solutions. The idea is to generate data for Godot Engine and control the face of an avatar with mine, for a numediart project. Here is what i’ve tested: OpenPose Obviously, the famous library. Tricky to install: you need cuda toolkit & cuDNN to start compiling. As it

Soft skin

Currently working on a library of skinning called SofSkin. It’s purpose is to make skinning in a different way: less rubberish and more mesh/geometry-oriented. The idea is to use edges of the mesh as springs that tries to recover their initial length by pulling/pushing on the vertices. The lexical field is focused on anatomy, to

Custom export python script for blender and custom…

Custom export python script for blender and custom import javascript for threejs to enable morphing of vertex normal in morph targets. It might seems a bit technical, but without this, the object loaded in threejs doesn’t react to light correctly: without this export, if faces change direction after deformation, the lack of normal morphing implies

Little week end challenge reproducing the fish…

Little week-end challenge: reproducing the “fish” shader demonstrated by Matt Nava in his talk at GDC last year. The shader Giant Squid Studio developed (at 3:50): After a few hours (not many), shader in godot: The source code is available on github:
