Gone have the days of address’s and telephone numbers, so why ask we are not sending products to your door. You’d be pretty mad if we turned up with concrete bricks and explosions.
We have streamlined the checkout now asking only the relevant information from you and still using Paypal as our preferred gateway. You don’t need a payapal account, but this keeps its safe secure and a lot more user firendly.
We looked at our websites vfxhut.com and our unlimited library subs.vfxhut.com and thought we need them to match more, to make the whole user experience more enjoyable and so that our customers/users know that they are in the same place.
We have changed the look and feel to be more consistent across the board. Starting with navigation all the way to fonts and page speeds.
We are now offering lifetime membership and yearly plans starting from as little as $49/year to have access to all of our content. Please bare with us we started small and are growing fast. So after signing up if you have any tech problems drop us an email and we will get back to you ASAP.
See for yourself and sign up if its for you: http://subs.vfxhut.com
So we really wanted to release a good water simulation tutorial and have been planning on doing one for a few months. We wanted to do it in x-particles but WE LOVE it, so do other people when you don’t need 3rd party plugins to do something for you. So thanks to blender we can export an abc file and render via Octane & Cinema 4D. Yes this combo can finally do spray and foam without the need for the powerhouse beast Houdini.
In these two short videos, you can do your first REALISTIC water simulation:
Lots of people get confused with our products and rightly so. Why are we the only people doing the Pay once for a pack and get free textures if we update or add to that pack?
Think of it this way, Quixel you pay £18-21/month but get access to 10-30 High-quality textures. With us catch it early pay £5.50 for around 5-10 textures and then if we upgrade the pack, you have paid £5.50 for 30 textures. So they are almost like baby subscription services though you only pay once.
So far on our VFX Hut journey, Bricked Volume 1 started its life with 10 textures, we updated it twice and now it has 20 textures. Surface Imperfections Volume 1 was released and has since been updated 3 times, which gave people who had already bought it another 4 new textures.
So we are updating them very slowly admittedly but from the get-go its priced right and then it’s a bonus if we add extra stuff to the packs.
We are currently looking into ways we could do the same for our VDB volumes however there are cost/bandwidth problems for us whilst we are still in our early stages.
