Hey Reader,

Zach here,

with another round of exciting 3D news from around the world.

This time we have a new tutorial on making your 3D scenes look massive, a special discount for the incredible Geo-Scatter add-on, insights to Blender 4.2 and Eevee Next and more.

Let’s dive in.

New Tutorial: Make Your 3D Scenes Look Huge

CG Boost’s own 3D environments wizard Martin Klekner has a new tutorial in which he shares his top 8 tips for adding epic scale to your 3D scenes.

These tips have been well tested by Martin throughout his many years of 3D cinematic experience, including his Heroes of Bronze short film.

The tricks are simple, easy to apply, and effective.

In our resource section, you can also download the example blend file and examine it to learn how he set it up (click "YouTube Tutorials & Project Files").

Incredibly Realistic Hand Rig & Animation

With Chris Jone's latest hand rig animation, it proves just how much of an impact you can make, by focusing all your skills and efforts on something as "small" as a human hand.

This is an update to his older project from 2012, and it is hard to believe that there is "No photos, scans or motion capture" used (it’s all hand made).


Blender 4.2 is coming - Here's what you need to know about Eevee Next

With the official Blender 4.2 release coming soon (planned for July 16th), it comes with improvements and exciting features, but also with changes that can impact your current workflow (and may be a bit frustrating).

Here are two useful videos that'll help you prepare, especially for "Eevee Next", the new and fully rewritten version of Blender's real-time renderer.

Martin Klekner already tried it in a production scene, and shares all that he learned about it in his new video.

And this next video by Hamza Meo, contains tips and tricks focused on EEVEE Next's new lighting system for realistic renders.

To learn more about the upcoming release and Eevee Next, check out the Blender 4.2 release notes.

That's all for this week, until next time with more 3D news and inspiring content.
