VanCG Meetup: Jason Martinsen + VRay Shader Workshop

This month, Jason Martinsen will be joining us to talk about his experiences in the VFX industry.  Jason is an animator for Animation Mentor, and has been in the industry since 2006. Jason has worked on movies like Paul, Iron Man 2, and many more.

Nicholas Boughen from CG Masters Academy will be presenting a Workshop and Q&A on VRay Shaders, for those interested. This Workshop will include how to make photo-real shaders in VRay. Our sponsors, Chaos Group and Annex Pro have offered to provide each participant of the workshop with a 30-90 day trial + hardware dongle of the VRay software!

We will also be introducing you to our newest Event Coordinator - Desiree Hamilton; as well as unveiling our latest open-source VFX project, Space Battles.

Like all of our events, we will have pizza, beer, non-alcoholic refreshments, socializing, door prizes and much more!

    Anyone who wants to attend the workshop at the end of the event, please help us out by filling out this 4 question survey -

    This is so Chaos Group knows how many people are interested in trial versions of their VRay software...
