Viewpoint: Mac Pro, What Does Apple Mean by Pro? A View from a Professional in 3D, Animation, VFX and Video Games
In this Viewpoint contribution Akiko Ashley, Architosh associate editor and co-founder of 3D animation studio Luminetik, delivers a compelling critique of the new 2013 Mac Pro, a workstation class computer that has been Apple’s most interesting new Mac product in years. With a background in visual effects for major TV and film productions, Luminetik provides Miss Ashley with a perspective on what studios really need in their pipeline hardware and what is good and bad about Apple’s latest Mac Pro in meeting that standard.
In this product review Architosh looks at GRAPHISOFT’S latest mobile app, the iOS-based BIMx Docs. BIMx was the first iteration of a BIM model viewing app with game-like walk-thru mode navigation, “gravity” based sensitivity–so that the walking experience felt as real as possible (no walking through walls like in the movie “Ghost”)–and door recognition. Now BIMx Docs extends on that solid base adding 2D documents and marrying the two types of viewing and navigation experiences.
