VFXWORLD is pleased to provide an early review of Mudbox, the eagerly awaited brush-based, full 3D modeling app from Skymatter. Even though it's still a work in progress, Fred Galpern explores the many benefits. In terms of movies, we have two time-trippers opening today: Darren Aronofsky's THE FOUNTAIN (from Warner Bros.) and Tony Scott's DÉJÀ VU (from Buena Vista). You can read how they grew chemical elements in a Petri Dish, which Intelligent Creatures then turned into special space backgrounds for the former, and how Asylum created cutting edge work for the latter. Everyone at VFXWORLD wishes you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!
