Bad BloodArguably the biggest music video success of 2015, Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood is an overload of VFX. Effects supervisor Grant Miller stated that out of 150 shots in the final video, only 2 did not include VFX… incredible. The Foundry, along with VFX house Ingenuity Studios, put together the following video so we could get a glimpse behind the scenes. There aren’t a lot of specifics online about the VFX tools used (besides The Foundry products: MODO 901, HIERO, MARI, NUKE and NUKE). However, this breakdown video sheds some light onto the process, showing a crazy combination of practical and digital effects. Jump to around 2:00 to see the fire VFX.Got any favorite examples fire VFX that we didn’t mention? Let us know in the comments below! Kung Fury80’s pastiche film Kung Fury nearly ‘broke the Internet’ when it was released earlier this year, racking up over 20 million YouTube views-to-date. With an intentionally over-the-top plotline, the film is dominated by inventive intentionally ‘cheesy’ CG shots, that are surprisingly well produced. After raising money on Kickstarter, director David Sandberg created the short film with a budget of $600,000… mostly from his grandmother’s garage (true story). Here’s a wholly composited explosion breakdown that Swedish animation studio Fido created for the film. Fire and Smoke PSAVFX Supervisor Josh Johnson took a minimal approach to fire effects with this PSA for volunteering. Some of the fire effects were created in post (Cinema 4D and TurbulenceFD) and then combined with live-action fire shot on set. The result is realistic and effective. Fire ReelJesse Pitela is a California-based motion designer who’s making a name for himself with his impressive VFX work. Although the following video is not technically a ‘breakdown,’ Jessie shows off some of his fire work… and it’s worth the watch. What I love most about his fire visual effects is A) they’re done completely in post — 3ds Max, Particle Flow, FumeFX, After Effects — and B) how incredibly organic they look. Nice work, Jesse. Fighter BreakdownHere’s an interesting spin on fire VFX – broadcast graphics for an MMA/boxing event. The effect is a bit cheesy (it’s supposed to be) but it really works in this case – and it was created entirely in post. Spot created by Danish motion designer Arash Shadeh. The CrossingBottleship VFX was employed to tackle the fire VFX sequences in John Woo’s epic period project The Crossing. In the following VFX breakdown, a battlefield is set aflame. There’s not a lot of information online about the tools used to create this scene, but with layer upon layer of smoke and fire, it’s certainly impressive. Actual fire can prove a safety nightmare on set and simulated fire is difficult to create. In this post, we’ve rounded up a few examples of films and videos that got it right in post, complete with impressive VFX fire breakdowns showing how they pulled it off.Over the last few years, post-production tools have become increasingly more sophisticated in the creation of realistic fire VFX. Third-party plugins for After Effects (including Trapcode Particular, GenArts’s Monsters GT and Phenomena from DigiEffects) make it accessible for motion designers and video editors to incorporate photo-realistic fire effects into video projects. Advanced users are going even deeper with simulators and render engines like FumeFX in 3DsMax and Maya, TurbulenceFD in Cinema4D, and Cycles in Blender to model physics-based smoke, explosions and fire VFX with advanced refinement.The following impressive VFX fire breakdown videos demonstrate what’s possible when these tools end up in the capable hands of pro motion designers and VFX artists.Project S.E.R.A.Two angles of an exploding building for sci-fi web series Project S.E.R.A. A host of post-production tools were utilized to create this fire and explosion effect in two weeks: 3ds Max, Thinking Particles, FumeFX, Vray and Nuke. Ghost RiderNo fire VFX roundup would be complete without a mention of the ‘infamous’ Ghost Rider franchise. Although the plot and acting leave something to be desired, some of the effects in the films were impressive, especially in 2007 when the first film was released. Here are a few fire VFX breakdowns from the sequel, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. Hell on WheelsHoly compositing! For the opener of AMC’s Hell on Wheels, fire elements were shot in camera (Canon 7D), then composited and layered in post using After Effects and Cinema 4D. Additional smoke and ember elements were created with Red Giant’s Trapcode Particular. Insert the actor shot on green screen and you’ve got a memorable title sequence.

By Bharat Sharma Palembang, Aug 20 (PTI) The ‘no alcohol’ policy at the Asian Games Village has not gone down well with the coaches and officials travelling with the athletes. Some have even tried to smuggle alcohol into the Village but with little success. An alcohol-free zone is not a surprise considering Indonesia banned liquor sale from departmental stores in 2015, barring the tourist-heavy Bali province. Indonesia also has the largest Muslim population in the world. “Only yesterday I saw whiskey bottles lying with the security guards at the Games Village. They are very strict about it. Though athletes don’t care much about the lack of alcohol, it is very normal to find a beer in the international zone of any major multi-sporting event including the Commonwealth Games this year,” a coach of the Indian contingent told PTI. While alcohol is readily available in pubs and restaurants in co-host Jakarta, it is tough to find even a mild beer in the port city of Palembang, the capital of South Sumatra province. For those wanting to down a quick pint, the only way left is to step out of the sprawling Jakabaring Sport City, housing the Games’ venues as well the accommodation. The hotels, where many technical officials are put up, are serving alcohol but at a higher price. “We go out sometimes for a drink but it is quite a task since the Village is cut off from the city,” said another official staying at the Village. Complaints are also piling up over the size of the accommodation provided at the Village, which can house 3,000 athletes and officials.advertisement Athletes and officials say the rooms are small and claustrophobic. “The rooms everywhere are basic but talking about this place, I don’t think I have stayed in a Games Village which has smaller rooms than here. There is no place to even keep a suitcase. There is hardly space to take a shower in the bathroom,” said a member of the Indian shooting team. Another athlete said the food quality was good at the start of the Games but has deteriorated since then. “Nobody is asking for a five-star facility but there should be some space to keep your belongings,” said the athlete. Each room has three beds and a small bathroom. Shooting, tennis, rowing, canoeing, beach volleyball, sports climbing and sepaktakraw are among the sports staged in Palembang. PTI BSAH

History will be made this weekend with a game being delivered in an Indigenous language for the first time in NHL history.Sportsnet and APTN are teaming up to deliver the first-ever NHL game in the Cree language when the Carolina Hurricanes host the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday.“Even if you don’t understand the language please tune in!” said Earl Wood, a founding member of the Northern Cree Singers who will be in the in-show host for APTN during the broadcast.“There is a vibratory energy there that is completely going to reverberate through all Indigenous communities in Canada and beyond. The Indigenous languages are going to be showcased to the world. It’s going to be amazing!” he added.Sportsnet’s Rogers Hometown Hockey will be in Enoch Cree Nation in Alberta for the monumental broadcast.When asked about the importance of the broadcast, Hometown Hockey host Ron MacLean said it is hard to put into words.“I think it’s beyond the ability to convey,” he said. “We have just come through Truth and Reconciliation and there has been the report and there has been the acknowledgment and there has been apologies. We are in this period, what’s next? And I think for us to actually stage an NHL telecast with the help of the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network is so the next step.”So how deep is the connection between hockey and Canada’s Indigenous communities? One former NHL player with Indigenous roots says the game played an important role in his upbringing.“Hockey or sports in general is a great avenue to help you in life in general,” former NHL player Jordin Tootoo said. “The inclusivity of being part of a team is something that you know for me there were times I doubted myself but I had my teammates push me through the hardships.”Broadcaster Clarence Iron will have the play-by-play call for APTN. Live coverage of the game starts at 6:30 p.m. ET Sunday on Sportsnet.
Koch Knight, LLC, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of ceramic mass transfer and acid proof equipment, is marking its 100th anniversary this month. “Today, our corrosion-proof products, many with their roots in 1910, are used throughout the chemical industry,” said Michael R. Graeff, president of Koch Knight. “We are excited about reaching this milestone and are dedicated to continuing to grow our business and developing new customer relationships. Koch Knight has sold products in 40-plus countries and has booked our largest order in history in 2010.”In the early 1900s, the Maurice A. Knight Company began producing KNIGHT-WAREr Ceramic in Akron, Ohio.“Until Mr. Knight bought a local pottery and began producing ceramics, the only place the American chemical industry could find chemical ceramics that would meet their needs was in Europe,” Graeff said. “The Knight-Ware product was made with vitreous ceramic, which did not depend upon a glaze for acid resistance, and had the strength to be formed into large pieces.”Assets of the Maurice A. Knight Company were acquired by subsidiaries of Koch Industries, Inc. in 1981.“Koch Knight has been an important part of the North East Ohio business community for the past 100 years,” said Dennis P. Saunier, Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce president and CEO. “The Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce is proud that the company calls Canton, Ohio, home and congratulates the entire workforce on their success. The company’s longevity is a testament to the outstanding workforce, the quality of its products and superb customer service. ”Koch Knight markets ceramic products as well as industry-leading components for wastewater treatment plants and thermal oxidation systems, including selling into the hydrometallurgical business. Customers include those in the mining, chemical processing and environmental industries.“Our customers include those who are working to improve their own environmental performance,” Graeff said. “Koch Knight products allow plants to burn volatile organic chemicals at the end of their processes to reduce emissions.”“Koch Knight has expanded its local operations over the past decade to include additional manufacturing capacity and capability in East Canton,” Graeff said.In addition to the 72-person local workforce, Koch Knight has sales offices in Australia and Brazil. The company also has a fabrication shop in Baytown, Texas.Employees and invited guests will celebrate the centennial of Knight-Ware this week.
FOUR YEARS AGO, adventurer Mark Pollock, who was the first blind man to reach the South Pole, became paralysed from the waist down in a fall from a window.The fall happened just three weeks before he was due to be married and he was in hospital for over a year. Since then, he has been through intensive rehabilitation at the Project Walk in San Diego and became the first person in the world to own a personal set of robotic legs made by Ekso Bionics.This week, Pollock will tell his incredible story at the TEDx Hollywood event, hoping to raise awareness of needs to be done to help people in wheelchairs.“Doing a TED Talk has been something I wanted to do for quite a while as it’s an fantastic opportunity to raise the profile of spinal injury with influential people around the world,” Pollock said today. “There’s no money in it but that’s not the motivation – it’s to spread the word to the world that spinal injury needs attention.” One of the main things I’m going to talk about is the dichotomy of acceptance and hope. When I broke my back, I was advised to accept my situation and move on but unless we have hope, how can we ever change things. Without acceptance there is no start line but without hope there is no finish line. Somewhere in the middle is making important progress.The talk will be available to view online in July and will form part of the closing sequence of a feature documentary called ‘Unbreakable’ about Pollock’s journey, due to be released in October.

IMA Jewels showroomtwitterThe SIT sleuths raided the office of IMA director Mohammed Mansoor Khan, a day after his new video surfaced on the internet, claiming that kilos of jewellery and gold bullion were kept inside the company’s vaults.A team of investigating officers headed by DCP S Girish raided the IMA office at Lady Curzon Road on Monday (June 24). They have recovered gold mortgage, bank and property documents of over 600 people from the office. Most of the documents belonged to the company staff and the teachers working in the school owned by IMA. The SIT officers also found nearly 50 kg of gold from the IMA office.The IMA scam has left not just the investors but the investigators also stranded. After Khan’s recent claims that he has properties worth Rs 500 crore, which can be liquidated and given to his investors as settlements, the SIT found that his total of assets is estimated to be only worth Rs 300 crore.On June 20, the officials had raided IMA jewels and his office at Shivajinagar and Jayanagar from where they recovered diamonds, gold and other jewellery worth Rs 20 crore.According to the earlier reports, Khan had transported the melted gold to an unknown location from IMA after he planned his escape. He allegedly melted 35 kg of gold in three days between June 5 and 8 after declaring a five day holiday for Ramadan to the company staff on June 4.It is alleged that Khan transported money to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) through hawala network. The SIT had also seized a 0.32mm pistol and 50 bullets belonging to Mansoor Khan in Monday’s raid. The firearm license was issued by Tilak Nagar police in March 2018, reports News9.Khan in his video had claimed of surrendering before the police if the law enforcement ensured his safety as he fears for himself and his family. He said that if he is allowed to return back to India he shall give the whole details of everyone involved in IMA, including all the top shots. “I want to present all the evidence I have before the police and courts. But the people involved in this scam are big people,” he said.The SIT sleuths claimed that they have knowledge of Khan’s location and will soon get him. Deputy Inspector General Ravikante Gowda has also guaranteed Mansoor Khan’s safety as he himself had claimed of surrendering in the new video.As the names of several Congress leaders and top government officials have been taken out by Khan in the operations of IMA, the BJP has demanded a CBI inquiry over the Ponzi scam claiming that only then the truth behind the scam will be exposed.
Nanochip lands $10M in financing Citation: A Glimpse of the Future MEMS-based Storage: Totally Green & Thumbnail Size (2009, June 23) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2009-06-glimpse-future-mems-based-storage-totally.html Explore further MEMS technology is currently used in iPhone and Wii devices. Dr. Khatib’s MEMS technology differs insofar as it optimizes the technology for use as a data storage device. The high-end Green technology discovery is less expensive to produce. The cost to operate will be cheaper than any other known memory device available for mobile devices. Dr. Khatib’s discovery is as effective as flash memory, but more cost-effective in all respects.According to the University of Twente spokesperson, “this new green storage technology with extremely high data densities has shown experimentally a storage density of 4Tb/in2 in a demonstration. In effect this means that when this technology is fully developed, it will be possible for a storage device to be reduced to the size of a fingernail, with a capacity of 1 Tb, (200 DVDs) and energy consumption remains extremely low. Thereby, MEMS combines the advantages of a disc (inexpensive) and a memory card (energy efficient).”Nearly everyone is familiar with digital still or video cameras. Video cameras often use storage on a disc such as a DVD (disk storage). Cameras often store their data on a memory card, such as a flash card (flash memory). Both methods have their own disadvantage. The cost of disk storage requires a lot of energy and the battery must be recharged often. Storage on a memory card is costly. Dr. Khatib’s method combines the best of both worlds and delivers a product which has low energy consumption with the advantages of high-density data storage on a low cost disc. Dr. Khatib received his PhD on June 11, 2009 from the TU Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science and the Centre for Telematic and Information Technology under the supervision of Professor Pieter Hartel and Dr. Leon Abelmann. The research was funded by the technology Foundation, STW. The University of Twente–Enschede, The Netherlands published newly conferred PhD Mohammed Ghiath Khatib’s thesis, “MEMS-based Storage Devices: Integration in Energy-Constrained Mobile System”. The new MEMS, (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) discovery will allow video camera batteries to increase their charging life approximately 2-1/2 times, consume 1/5th of the energy of disc storage and store 1-Tb on a postage stamp size device. Dr. Khatib expects this new technology to be available to the public within the next five-years. Micro-Electro-Mechanical System. Credit: Zurich IBM Lab This document is subject to copyright.

Diversity is the art of thinking independently together, and a new vibrancy is created when this action results in linking different forms of cultural events under one roof – particularly when they bring about unison of different countries.The International Ancient Arts Festival/Symposium (IAAF) being held in the Capital in March is aimed at achieving this difficult task by bringing together various forms of dance and music and dance in a single event. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfSlated for March 10 and 11 at The Ashok Amphitheatre, Diplomatic Enclave, Chanakyapuri, the event will show how music and dance are vital therapeutic tools in traditional systems of healing. Adding to the value of this event is the fact that it will have artists from Guinea and Switzerland along with those from India. According to the festival Director, Reela Hota, who founded the Ray of Wisdom Society, “This is the only multi-arts event of its kind which tries to educate while entertaining.” The danseuse, who started a new chapter in Odissi dance and its spiritual aspect, said that the event will highlight how dance can help achieve a more balanced lifestyle and rounded personality in a common man’s life filled with stress and strain. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThe Rays of Wisdom Society is organizing the festival with the support of the Ministry of Culture in collaboration with ITDC and The Ashok. The event consists of lectures and discussions on various aspects of dance, music, allied arts and their relevance in urban life, proceeded by actual performances. There will be performances by the World Music Group, Nandighosha from Switzerland, Djembe player Babara Bangoura from Guinea and a Kathak performance by Guru Shikha Khare. Odissi Dance on Vedas by renowned dancer and spiritualist Reela Hota with a fashion show on healing colours is one of the highlights of Day 1. Yoga and dance meet in Reela Hota’s Odissi recital whose theme is self-liberation. The age-old exercises are presented in the dance form. ‘The Vedas: Eko Ham Bahu Shyam’ showcases the different aspects of the Vedic culture and lifestyle as Vedas are the scriptures of ultimate knowledge that show the path to purge negative past karmas and fulfil all human desires while maintaining the harmony in society. It will depict the nature and philosophy of Vedas, human desires, the ashram system and the realization of the ultimate truth –that is Advaita – in Odissi.Dr Prerna Kohli, a Clinical Psychologist, and Sonia Bhandari, Consultant Art Therapist at Vimhans Hospital, will speak on ‘Arts and Healing’. Some of the subjects that will come up for discussion are – the psychotherapeutic use of movement and dance to support intellectual, emotional, and motor functions of the body and the unique and life-enhancing benefits of music available to many vulnerable, marginalized people. Since the dawn of creation, tantriks and yogis have realized that in this physical body there is a potential force. It is not psychological, philosophical or transcendental; it is a dynamic potential force in the material body, and it is called kundalini. This Kundalini Shakti is a source of great peace, bliss and the awakening of this potential force is the goal of every individual. Based on this ancient practice, Reela Hota will present ‘Vishwasya Beejam-Kundalini’ at the festival.The finale would be an award presentation to cultural impresario Churchil Pandhian from Chennai.

Tyas said almost every growing region was experiencing a growth in plantings, primarily of the dominant Hass variety but also Shepard in Queensland.He added that as production climbed, Avocados Australia was working with Hort Innovation to expand domestic and existing international markets. Avocados Australia is also working actively with the Australian Government to open new export markets.“Australia will always be a supplier of top-quality Premium avocados, mainly Hass, in the international market, rather than a bulk supplier,” he said.“At the moment, we export less than 5% of our production annually but that will increase as our production increases. Gaining access to new markets ahead of that increased supply is a high priority for the Australian industry, as is boosting our current markets, Malaysia and Singapore in particular.” You might also be interested in
