Winners Announced for FGT3D Fox Challenge!
Fox Renderfarm, the leading cloud rendering services provider and CPU & GPU render farm, held a 3D challenge competition called FGT3D FOX Challenge from March 22nd to June 5th. !Winners Announced for FGT3D Fox Challenge 1The theme of the competition is to create a 3D fox. You can let your imagination run free and create a unique 3D fox. Besides the grand prizes, all works will have the chance to become Fox Renderfarm's mascot and become a representative to meet friends around the world. The competition was deliberately divided into two groups, one for professionals and one for students, depending on their abilities. From each of these two groups, the judges selected the top three works in the ranking.The competition has recently concluded successfully and the winners have been announced, so let's take a look at who the winners are and their beautiful and creative foxes. Professional Category 1st Place!Winners Announced for FGT3D Fox Challenge 2Title: Fennec Fox WarriorCreated by Alex Salles What Alex saysI made a rough sketch sculpting in ZBrush, once I got a nice shape I started to add the primary and secondary shapes of the anatomy. I did the reptopology process and Uvs using 3Dcoat. I did a basic painting in Substance Painter to make the textures of the leather, feather and so on. After that I moved to 3D Max and got started working in hair and fur, using Ornatrix. Besides that, I work in the lighting process and the shaders, I used V-Ray to make it. After I got the result that I expected I moved to Photoshop to make the post process. What our jury saysBen Cheung: Complete design work, shows off the work well, attention to details. Lighting and fur are very well executed. Love the ears, eyes can be worked more to show more of the fighter spirit, and can add a tad more sss, so that skin tone as a bit of transparency. Lighting can be a bit more dynamic to show 3D space. Otherwise excellent work.Tom Grimes: Wow! Such a fantastic level of detail in everything in this scene, and the Fennec Fox is a great choice that gives the image a lot of character! Look at that fur, those whiskers, those eyes, the outfit... I could go on, everything has so much detail!Miho Aoki: The details in this image are fantastic! The fur looks detailed and soft, and other materials and surfaces, like the leather, tree bark and plants, create a contrast with the character. This image has many colors, and the colors work together to enhance the image. 2nd Place!Winners Announced for FGT3D Fox Challenge 3Title: Little Venice FantasyCreated by Kay John Yim What John saysUrban foxes have become a familiar sight in London - they started appearing in the city following World War I, quickly adapting to the once rural areas now developed into housing and transport systems. In "Little Venice Fantasy" I fantasize an urban fox living among Londoners, settling in a seductively elegant Bohemian interior decorated into her own urban forest. What our jury saysFrank WANG Yefeng: My top choice for the competition is “Little Venice Fantasy.” This artwork stands out for its astonishing composition, rendering quality, and concept. This fictional Venetian room is transformed to a botanical pantheon of the fox by the artist. It triggers a positive emotion from the viewers and the imaginations of its rich stories! The carefully considered visual effects, reflection, and diffused lighting contribute to the convincedness of the work, and make the viewers want to stay with it for a long time. Amazing job!Miho Aoki: The fox is looking at the table and looks like waiting. The surrounding looks magical and makes me wonder if something more mystical and fantastic will happen soon.Tom Grimes: I don't know what story this image tells, but I like that about it, the juxtaposition of the wildflowers growing right inside a room. I like the colors and overall "pop" that this image has.John's another beautiful work rendered with Fox Renderfarm: Ballerina: A CGI Fantasy Created by Kay John Yim 3rd Place!Winners Announced for FGT3D Fox Challenge 4Title: Muscle FoxCreated by Lee Ming ng What Lee Ming saysSleeping muscle fox, don't wake him up! What our jury saysBen Cheung: Nice work! Nice lighting, dynamic character with dynamic lighting. Materials and fur are well done. The facial is also nice. Wondering what kind of pain is he bearing. Defiantly pro and top-notch technically. Just thinking maybe turn up a bit more sss will render the skin a bit more transparent probably will look even more appearing. And don't forget the peach shader, adding that will create some peach effect into the skin. Well done and makes me wondering what kind of interesting story behind the scene. Student Category 1st Place!Winners Announced for FGT3D Fox Challenge 5Title: Roufox (روفاکس)Created by Yahya Khajehi What Yahya saysA robotic hover fox who can be your sage and agile sidekick in dangerous zones! What our jury saysBen Cheung: A bit more complicated design compares to others, well lit, materials are nice, dirt texture is nice, lighting is quite appropriate, next can try to play with highlight in the comp to create more metallic feel, also can put into a darker background to show off the robot, and a bit more dynamic lighting to show more 3D space.Miho Aoki: The robot looks very mysterious, and the design of the body and the face makes me wonder what the purpose of this robot is. The detail on the textures makes the character look metallic, heavy and believable.Frank WANG Yefeng: Fascinating design! A turbine-engined fox automaton!! We know it will move. Will it shoot lasers from its eyes?Tom Grimes: Interesting design, lots of detail and good lighting are what appeal to me here. I am also intrigued as to what this fox robot was built for, what is its purpose? I would love to have seen it in a more complete scene or setting with more of a story to it! 2nd Place!Winners Announced for FGT3D Fox Challenge 6Title: Vulpes CreaturaeCreated by Jessica Chan What Jessica saysAssembled mechanical fox compiled from found objects. What our jury saysBen Cheung: Great design, feels legonish, but is it a boar? Anyway, lighting is nice, GI is nicely executed.Miho Aoki: The mechanical walking creature is very artistic! It looks made from small parts like screws and tiny blades. The materials on the surfaces are very well done. They look like painted and bare metals.Tom Grimes: I like the abstraction here, with the colors in particular calling back to a fox. Nice materials and lighting - would love to see this in a full 3D scene, with something that gives a sense of scale (is it large or small, I am not sure!). 3rd Place!Winners Announced for FGT3D Fox Challenge 7Title: Mod FoxCreated by Sithuka Bihan What Sithuka saysA modern neon fox who achieving the world. What our jury saysTom Grimes: I am really drawn to this image, despite (or perhaps because of) its simplicity. I really love how everything has this wonderful glow, and how cute the fox looks and their expression and pose which somehow makes them look a little timid and vulnerable. Makes me feel like this could come from a video game.Frank WANG Yefeng: Stylish!Let's congratulate these award winners! And we are also very grateful to all the participants, your beautiful foxes will be kept in our hearts forever!As the CG industry's always professional cloud rendering services provider, and a TPN-accredited render farm, Fox Renderfarm is offering a $25 free trial to all new users.

Estes incluem o roubo e o lançamento de "Orange Is the New Black" da temporada 5 episódios de uma empresa de pós-produção de áudio e um episódio da temporada 7 do "Game of Thrones" que deu origem a funcionários de um fornecedor de gerenciamento de dados que trabalhava com a 21st Century Fox’s Star India. O pesadelo da pirataria continuou depois que a Netflix se recusou a pagar o resgate solicitado. O grupo hacker The Dark Overlord carregou grande parte da "Orange Is the New Black" da temporada 5 online através do serviço ilegal de compartilhamento de arquivos e continuou postando mensagens arrogantes e até mesmo repreendendo online. Grandes danos foram causados aos principais estúdios de produção de Hollywood e à saúde de toda a indústria.A Trusted Partner Network (TPN) é uma nova iniciativa global de proteção de conteúdo de filmes e televisão para toda a indústria. O programa TPN ajuda as empresas a evitar vazamentos, violações e hacks de filmes e shows de televisão de seus clientes antes de seu lançamento pretendido e procura aumentar a conscientização, preparação e capacidades de segurança dentro da indústria. Ela funciona como uma câmara de compensação global que estabelecerá padrões de segurança para empresas de produção e distribuição de entretenimento. Os parceiros que passarem por uma avaliação independente em conformidade com as melhores práticas da indústria serão listados como "parceiros de confiança" no catálogo da TPN."Criar os filmes e programas de televisão desfrutados por audiências em todo o mundo requer cada vez mais uma rede de vendedores e técnicos especializados", disse o presidente e CEO da MPA, Charles Rivkin, em uma declaração. "É por isso que manter altos padrões de segurança para todas as operações de terceiros - do roteiro à tela - é uma parte tão importante para evitar o roubo de obras criativas e, em última instância, proteger os empregos e a saúde de nossa vibrante economia criativa".

Além disso, os fornecedores avaliados são obrigados a fazer a reavaliação anual a cada ano para melhorar continuamente o sistema de segurança a fim de melhor atender aos padrões de avaliação da TPN. Os relatórios de avaliação são compartilhados dentro da plataforma TPN e também podem ser compartilhados com clientes existentes e potenciais, a critério do fornecedor.

Two Important Things Zync Render Users Need to Know
We are sorry that Zync Render has to officially shut down on June 1, 2021, the cloud rendering services provided by Google Cloud. Since the chaos that has a huge impact on the 3D industry worldwide caused by the pandemic, Fox Renderfarm strongly believes that every contributor in the industry matters, and we never see other cloud render farms as competitors but teammates to make this industry robust and vigorous. What Should Zync Render users do to avoid losses as much as possible and continue their cloud rendering easily after the change? Here are 2 pieces of advice. 1. Be aware of 2 special dates Zync has stopped accepting new users and halted new development since June 21, 2020, which means the software and plugins support and maintenance provided by the render farm cannot be up to date.

Those included the theft and release of “Orange Is the New Black” season 5 episodes from an audio post-production firm and an episode from “Game of Thrones” season 7 that was traced to employees at a data-management vendor working with 21st Century Fox’s Star India. The hacking nightmare continued after Netflix refused to pay the requested ransom. The hacker group The Dark Overlord uploaded much of “Orange Is the New Black” Season 5 online through illegal file-sharing service and kept posting arrogant and even scolding messages online. Huge damage was caused to Hollywood’s major production studios and to the health of the whole industry.Trusted Partner Network (TPN) is a new, global, industry-wide film and television content protection initiative. The TPN program helps companies prevent leaks, breaches, and hacks of their customers’ movies and television shows prior to their intended release and seeks to raise security awareness, preparedness, and capabilities within the industry. It functions as a global clearinghouse that will set security standards for entertainment production and distribution companies. Partners who pass an independent assessment conforming to those industry best practices will be listed as “trusted partners” in the TPN directory. “Creating the films and television shows enjoyed by audiences around the world increasingly requires a network of specialized vendors and technicians,” MPA chairman and CEO Charles Rivkin said in a statement. “That’s why maintaining high security standards for all third-party operations — from script to screen — is such an important part of preventing the theft of creative works and ultimately protects jobs and the health of our vibrant creative economy.” How Does TPN Work?The TPN assessment process is highly rigorous with detailed security requirements on the physical security, asset management, content life-cycle, enterprise security, risk assessment, vulnerability management, security operations and incident response, policy & procedures, human resources processes, and most importantly, infrastructure. Moreover, the assessed Vendors are required to do the annual re-assessment every year to continuously improve the security system to better meet the TPN assessment standards. The assessment reports are shared within the TPN platform and can also be shared with existing and potential customers at the vendor’s discretion.
