Caminandes 3 - Llamigos out now
The newest episode with our beloved Alpaca (nooo, it's no Llama :) ) is out now:

https://t.co/Y1Yybnxyun

Weeklies
Following the progress of the short in the weeklies was already awesome - if you haven't seen them watch the episodes right after watching the final short film!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQH897V9bDg&list=PLI2TkLMzCSr_H6ppmzDtU0ut0RwxGvXjv

And if you haven't seen the previous two episodes, then have a look at them...

Caminandes: Llama Drama

Caminandes 2 Gran Dillama
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4C82eyhwgU

I could only imagine how much sweat, tear and headache was caused by this amazing short, especially during the last days! But I'm absolutely sure that you'll pull a lot more professionals in the open source 3D space with this series!

Sarah, Hjalti, Pablo, Andy & Francesco you gifted us with a stunning, funny short that is top notch in every aspect: animation, compositing, layout, materials, lighting... it's simply amazing!

Now enjoy the fame and rest - you all deserve it!

I'll go and re-watch the short now several times :)

New Video Sequence Editor modifier developed

As sad as I am that I can't dedicate much dev time into my beloved #b3d nowadays (beneath my full time job, my company and my studies), as happy am I to say that now I had a day to develop a new VSE modifier.

I'm filming much while Christmas is happening - all with as few in camera effects as possible to ease the post production. That's why every video is using camera raw white balance and as Blenders VSE is my editor of choice I wanted to set the white balance point in there.

We have a Color Balance modifier but it's more guessing than an easy way to set the white balance point - in fact setting the white balance is the first step of postpro. Color grading should be the last step in this pipeling.

Long story short: I developed a new VSE modifier that lets you set a new "white point" ... I'll polish the patch a bit and will then post it on our developer portal... should be ready for Blender 2.77 !

Best wishes, merry Christmas and a great new year for all of you,
Thomas
