Dave shows how the Luminous Light Kit available from can aid in creating Octane-compatible lights, and talks about his collaboration with Deadmau5. Finally, Dave shows a project for InTouch Ministries, where he used CV-ArtSmart to quickly import and extrude Illustrator artwork and World Machine to create an Octane-friendly displacement map for the landscape.
