New Site, sneak peak!
Here is what we're working on at the moment it will feature
  • Bigger emphasis on user contributed uploads
  • A place for members to host there images, showreals and animations
  • Training for other software
  • More tutorials, more instructors
  • Cheaper prices
  • Faster servers with 4Tb of storage for member uploads
  • Upgraded forums
  • Working Gallery!
  • New management team
Things that will come later
  • A place for members to sell there models
  • Live on-line training
Remember this is a rough draft



The new site was fully designed and laid out using CSS so we will be releasing a development pack should any of our more nerdy members wish to design skins for the site please let me know.

We are also looking for someone to moderate the new user contributions area as well as for some new guest instructors.

If you have any comments suggestions or something you'd like to contribute to the site please feel free to contact me on

Wow, that looks really amazing! Any set dates for when it's gonna be released, since we've been waiting so long?

And what ever happened to the beta testing you needed done?
