SplutterFish, creators of Brazil Rendering System, are working with a new rendering technology, and are offering cash prizes in exchange for help from the 3ds Max community. Brazil r/s is already one of the most advanced renderers available, and SplutterFish is developing the next generation of the product -- a technological leap that will transform the creative workflow of visual effects artists, industrial designers and architects worldwide.
To support this effort, SplutterFish is challenging artists and designers to create scenes which help test the development of this new system. A total of $7,500 in prize money will be awarded to the best submissions across a variety of categories.
The contest is open to any 3ds Max user -- industry professionals, enthusiasts and students. No Brazil purchase is necessary -- you can use the Brazil Rio edition, a fully functional, non-expiring, free version of the Brazil rendering system software, downloadable at www.splutterfish.com.
The contest will have one grand prize winner: $2,500, five runners up: $1,000 each and 100 other prizes, such as Brazil product discounts and other merchandise. Contest ends on October 15 with prizes being awarded now to early entrants.
