XYZ Studios for Birds Eye

Congratulations to Tim Kentley and the rest of the Melbourne based XYZ Studios team on “Australian Grown” for Birds Eye. Yeti was used to groom, simulate, procedurally generate and render the feathers for all of the Birds in these spots. Keep up the great work!

And for those with an eye for colour, check out Tim’s new space – Crayon.

Toonbox Entertainment and Yeti via Dell!

Dell has made a video available showcasing some of the great work Toonbox Entertainment has been producing over the last year – the crew has been involved with Yeti from the beginning and, with the help of the Peregrine Labs team, integrated it as their studio wide fur solution.

Foxy Folks @ Fuel VFX

We’ve been lucky enough to have great studios involved with the Beta of Yeti – one of those is Fuel VFX located in Sydney Australia. This past summer the team lead by Head of Surfacing Bryn Morrow produced two spots for Bankwest Australia.

“I have been using Yeti right from the start and it has made my job of creating furry characters way easier. Once you get used to the combing features and tools, your workflow tends to get much faster” commented Bryn.

“One of the best features is the graph editor and being able to tweak your fur as nodal networks. This makes organization and multi-node interconnecting a great way of tracking your progress and being able to identify any areas causing problems. It also gives you the freedom of creating endless possibilities of hair styles.”

A big congratulations to all of the folks involved at Fuel VFX and we can’t wait to see what they produce next!
