I dont know if this had been suggested before but I have searched and cant find a post about it.
Would it be possible to make a new forum for 3d and general cgi topics?
I think it woud be very useful as there are many posts about stuff like that now.

That might be a bit redeundant seeing as there are already a large number of 3D forums out there. Having said that it could still be a good idea.

I know there are alot of 3d forums (I was thinking the exact same thing ^), but it doesnt all have to be 3d it can also be stuff made in photoshop etc and nevertheless there are still lots of topics like that in the filmakers forum and general chat.

Yeah, I can seem to remember that there used to be a "3rd Party Applications" forum a while back although I think that got closed when the site changed to FXHome so maybe there's a reason why there's not one.

The "3rd party apps" forum was originally meant for programs that were specifically created to work with alamdv2/chromanator/fxhome (things like cinemaPrep). In the end it was used to discuss pretty much any app not made by us. We decided that as most of the big apps have their own forums it would be better to discuss them there. For now we'd like to keep discussion mainly centered around our own products.

Im not too sure about a dedicated CG forum either. I had a quick glance at the first page of topics in the film forum and only 5 out of 50 seem related to CG. The other problem is that none of our programs do 3D modelling, so i think it might be a bit misleading to have a special forum for it.

Actually I thought about that too (keep the discussions to csb products etc.) and I thought that would be the best.
But there is still relatively quite alot of posts about cgi. (5/50 = 10%)

And (I know theyre not) but to me they seem sort of "out of place."
But its probably just me. wink

Yeah. I think there should be a separate forum.
