Razer is known for its thin and light gaming notebooks, and the new 12.5-inch Blade Stealth is no exception. But in addition to being compact, it works with an external dock, granting gamers access to a desktop-class GPU along with amenities like Ethernet and four USB ports. Though Razer isn't the first to attempt this sort of setup, the Blade Stealth is notable for eschewing proprietary connectors; instead, it uses Thunderbolt 3, a common standard that allows the dock to work with a wider range of PCs. In a field of PCs at this year's CES that mostly included Skinny-Minnie machines, the one that stood out was the one that didn't compromise on performance. -- Dana Wollman the managing director added.
Houdini 17.5, The Latest Version Coming Soon
houdini render farm
The SideFX team launched a new version of Houdini 17.5 in Montreal, Canada. Fox Render support many kinds of 3d rendering software, including Houdini. Houdini 17.5 is an important release that includes many key features. The H17.5 version code is PDG (Procedural Dependency Graph). This new technology is available in the upcoming Houdini 17.5 as a new Houdini operational context (called TOPs, Task Operator) and a standalone application called PilotPDG. Whether you're a movie VFX artist, a game developer or a business studio, Houdini 17.5 brings you new enhancements to meet your most demanding production needs. In addition, Houdini 17.5 has a variety of feature enhancements that you can learn about H17.5 new feature videos and release demo videos.
In addition, there are many other improvements in 17.5, including a large upgrade of the view display (GPU accelerated real-time display Volume/Fireworks, standard material preview view and rendering height consistent), and special effects simulation part upgrade (drawing directly in view) RBD constraints, Vellum support different points for each Friction, etc.), upgrade of the modeling part (Measure measurement node 2.0, Terrarian terrain Erosion function speed increase of 70%, terrain support Alpha Cutouts / floating islands become extremely simple Wait).
Vellum also acquired a new "fiber" constraint that functions like an internal bracket in an object, determining how it deforms. The orientation of the fibers can be manually adjusted using a modified version of Houdini's existing hair grooming toolset. Other changes to the simulation toolset include a new set of interactive RBD constraints that allow users to manipulate dynamic simulations directly in the viewport without having to edit parameter values.
New gpu-based smoke shader, improved Principled shader
Houdini 17.5 also improved the display of volume effects in the window. The update introduces a new gpu-accelerated smoke shader that is "three times faster" than the previous shading system when using regional light sources. The new shader should also provide a more accurate preview of the interaction between scene lighting and smoke, including support for shadows and spotlights.
Workflow: Override key SOPS, new multi-output display options
Workflow changes include "rewriting" of Measure SOP, adding options for calculating surface curvature and gradient as well as area or volume. Values can be visually displayed through viewport color coding, including built-in histogram display.
Below is the conference video.
The Wandering Earth China Box Office Market Broke 3 Billion In 10 Days
As of February 15th, the Chinese New Year movie The Wandering Earth, directed by Frant Gwo, rendered by the leading render farm in the CG industry, Fox Renderfarm. Star by Guangjie Li, Chuxiao Qu, Jing Wu and Man-Tat Ng, etc. The Wandering Earth has broken a total of 3 billion in the box office, becoming the sixth domestic film in the history of China's film history of over 3 billion domestically produced films. Also, it is the fastest to break 3 billion movies. The fifth place in China's mainland box office is Wolf Warriors II, with a total box office of 5.683 billion, directed by Wu Jing, starring Wu Jing, Frank Grillo.
The story tells of the future world. Because of the ageing of the sun, the expansion of the universe, the earth is about to be swallowed up. In order to survive, humanity begins a wandering journey. Wanting to push the Earth out of the solar system and going to a new home will cost 15 billion tons of thrust. This process is staggering.
Finally, the "400 years of preparation, 100 generations of participation, 2500 years of lonely sailing" grand opening of the stray. This process is not peaceful and full of crisis. The first is because the sun shines, melting the glaciers, causing abnormal climate changes, flooding the city, and leaving the earth behind the sun, and because the temperature is too low, humans cannot survive. In order to survive, people try their best to move underground. Due to the limited space in the dungeons, the first crisis caused countless deaths.
As Jupiter's gravity increases, the Earth is about to hit a huge Jupiter. If it happens, the Earth is about to collapse. Faced with such a steep test, can the lonely and erratic earth continue to exist?
The Wandering Earth special visual effects lens shocked the audience and beautifully rendered the doomsday scene in the story. The ice, the flood, the surface collapse, the darkness of the space... create a wonderful journey of the universe. Looking up at the stars from the earth, let people see a wonderful and unpredictable space. This is the result of four years of work in the film production team! In addition to the wonderful special effects, the props in the film are also well-made, "God's blowtorch" - the planetary engine's reach is 11,000 meters, and the tyrannical visual impact is amazing.
Of course, if there is only an advantage in special effects production, the film is not enough to conquer the hearts of the audience. It is mainly the emotional clues that run through it, making people feel the same. Wandering is for survival, and it must be done. In many Hollywood movies, sci-fi-themed TV dramas have the plot to face the end of the world, and this film shows the Chinese people's attitude towards this: we can wander, but never abandon our hometown! Even if the disaster comes, it cannot be changed, and it will fly away with our planet.
In the film, in order to defend the homeland, in order to find a place to live, and to seek the home of the soul, the people on the earth have repeatedly sacrificed to overcome the danger. The story is in the name of wandering, but wandering is to find a home that can be settled. We fear nature, but we are not afraid of difficulties. We always go forward with hope. In the universe, even if it is as small as dust, we are unyielding and determined to move forward. Since the film The Wandering Earth was released on the first day of the Chinese calendar on February 5th, the box office has been counter-attacked with a strong reputation. The film was released on the first day of the box office of 188 million. From the third day of the show, it quickly climbed to the single-day box office. On the fourth day of the show, the box office broke through 1 billion. On the sixth day of the show, it broke through 2 billion at the end of the Spring Festival holiday. On February 14 On the day, the film successfully broke through the 3 billion marks and launched an impact on the box office record of the mainland film history.
In the Chinese mainland film and television market, it can be described as a "zero breakthrough" and a "great leap" in Chinese science fiction movies. It fills a gap in the history of Chinese film for more than 100 years. Compared with Hollywood, the development of science fiction movies in China is still zero. The appearance of The Wandering Earth is not a step forward, but a pole vault.

Oscar winning Mr. Hublot: Small step for Fox Renderfarm, giant step for China
Mr. Hublot is a Luxembourg/France co-produced 11 min sifi animated film won the 2014 Oscar for Best Animated Short Film.
Produced, written and directed by Mr. Laurent Witz and co-directed by Alexandre Espigares. Designed by sculptor Stephane Halleux, the story is set in a realistically world that is a combination of steam punk and a bizarre futuristic world.
The silent film is about Mr. Hublot, an agoraphobia and obsessive compulsive mechanical man with clockwork counters running in his forehead. He's scared of change and scared of the outside world. His entire world starts to change when he saved a lonely and abandoned terrified robot dog from a cardboard box and turns his life upside down in the sweetest and heartwarming way.
This visually and emotionally beautiful film uses full CGI (computer graphics imagery) to give us a futuristic steampunk environment for its title protagonist, the realistic and super detailed world realized with artful and breathtaking detail is easily another character in the film. The gorgeous mechanical and cluttered metropolis with magnificent details requires the use of massive computing power.
