During past week I was in the UCI college (University of Informatics Sciences), The most important college of its kind in Cuba with around 10000 students of informatics engineering. This time I was invited by a group of them that use blender for its projects and I was amazed: They are very enthusiastic and have a lot of plans for future projects with blender as the main core, even they plan to build up there a full renderfarm!
They have a project FreeViUx (Free Videos using Linux) that are very promissing 🙂
I give a conference about blender,volumetrics,the 3D industry today and the future.
I leave there convinced that the blender comunity inside UCI will grow even more in near future and lots of cool projects will be born there, among them the proper foundation of a Cuban Blender Comunity.
Now Im back at home, and back again on volumetrics… Cheers to all and I leave you with a picture of those young blender pilars in Cuba!
Special thanks to those fellows from UCI that have gave me the oportunity to visit them 🙂
PD: I have the green pullover 🙂
