Screen Shot 10-19-16 at 12.54 PM

After a loooong wait (very sorry for that), the last Master Class of our first series is finally available to watch & share!

In this 4-videos course, François Gastaldo teaches us the basics of OSL (Open Shading Language) scripting in Blender. You know, the little box you can tick in the render options that enable custom scripted shaders? Well, that will allow you to create shaders that are fully customizable, and reusable in other software packages that use OSL! And also, something really cool, with OSL, you get to use various shaders created for other render engines, in Blender.

You can watch the first part below, and all of them are in the Master Class section of the website and on our Youtube Channel as a playlist.

[Bbug Master Classes] François Gastaldo

Optics specialist and outstanding technician with many tools, François is specialized in creating 3D materials and shaders.

Professor and lecturer, we met him several times at the Blender Conference where he transmitted us his passion for OSL (Open Shading Language) (www.openshading.com).

He immediately accepted our invitation to come and reveal to us his secrets.

This Master Class is part of our crowfunding and, as such, is a prepaid event.

[Bbug Master Classes] François Grassard

Like David Revoy, François Grassard made the choice to gradually include Open Source in both his courses and in his professional pipeline.

Eternal source of quality tutorials, he is at the root of the transition of the University Paris-8 towards free solutions such as Krita, Blender or Natron.

Exceptional Jack-of-all-trade, strong supporter and user of both Natron and Blender, he specializes in camera tracking, 3D integration and particle systems.

This Master Class is part of our crowfunding and, as such, is a prepaid event.

[Bbug Master Classes] Sarah Laufer

Sarah went to study at Supinfocom in Valenciennes where she co-realized 8bits, a critically acclaimed short film.

She then returns to Costa Rica to found her own animation studio and regularly gives courses with Blender to young people from disadvantaged neighborhoods in San Jose.

We take this opportunity of her return to the old continent to work on the latest Open Movie of the Blender Foundation to offer to his homeland a Master Class on character animation.

This Master Class is part of our crowfunding and, as such, is a prepaid event.

[Bbug Master Classes] David Revoy

Krita Ambassador, an alternative to Photoshop whose popularity continues to grow, David is both a teacher (Haute Ecole Albert Jacquard, CGCookie, Blender Foundation), a concept artist on Sintel and Tears of Steel and an illustrator for many publishers.

This award-winning artist will talk about concept art, 2D digital painting on Krita and the brand new features of the latest version which was just released a little while ago.

This Master Class is part of our crowfunding and, as such, is a prepaid event.

The first BBUG Masterclasses Crowdfunding is a success

Hello everyone!

As mentionned in the previous news, and as those of you who attended our latest events already know: we just launched a crowdfunding campaign to host 4 masterclasses with 4 world-class experts!

Growfunding campaignFor our first edition of “The Bbug Masterclasses”, we’re proud to invite people such as David Revoy, Sarah Laufer, François Grassard and François Gastaldo!

The campaign will be live for 33 days, starting today! So hurry up, and go grab a ticket, the seats are limited!

We partnered up with the PointCulture from Brussels for this, and they’ll lend us their really nice place where we can have up to 50 people, seated with laptops! And everything will be filmed, edited and uploaded to the internet, and available for free for everyone!

Why a crowdfunding campaign?
We need some budget to be able to pay for their travel expenses. We designed the campaign with you in mind, that’s why it’s so cheap, and that’s why the BBUG won’t earn any money on this 🙂

Why choose “Growfunding” as a platform for this campaign?
Growfunding.be is a Belgian crowdfunding website focused about social events in Brussels, so, perfect for us 🙂

For the occasion, we put a short video together:

We Did it! Congrats, it’s a success.

The last seats is available on EventBrite.
