Good Site for VFX/CG Jobs Search

This site was recommended to me by William Lin, my good friend and fellow colleague at Double Negative.

2-Pop Forums

Here's another one I found:
CGMeetUp.org (here's their facebook page)

I'll post more as I stumble on them. Maybe I'll add them as comments for this post.

Do you guys have other good sites to recommend?

New (and old) Videos Uploaded

Someone requested that I show some aviation related work, and so happened that I was recently involved in a project related to modelling, animating and rendering planes. So I decided to upload some of them on www.vimeo.com. 

Here it is:

Planes Compilation 2011 (March) from Patrick Woo on Vimeo.

While I was at it, I also uploaded some old works I created, just so to get them in one place.

Showreel from 2006!! Nostalgic!

Showreel 2006 (Jan) from Patrick Woo on Vimeo.

Some Lighting and rendering test I did in my own time, in the middle of 2009

Architectural Lighting / Rendering Test (July 2009) from Patrick Woo on Vimeo.

Some animation that went into my church's (Grace Assembly of God) video.

Grace Missions Ocean Background (December 2009) from Patrick Woo on Vimeo.

Of course, please feel free to visit my page on vimeo.com and watch all my videos. Comment if you like them! :)

News and ptex

I learnt about Disney releasing its PTex source code and following that, support for a library to read, write, cache and filter ptex files. Here's the news I was reading:


Disney releases open-source 3dcode


I looked up some resources pertaining to PTex. It stands for Per-face Texture. However, I did not really have time to read and deeply understand what ptex is, and how actually works, but these are some links for you to read up.
