"We work in a client driven business that expects visually stunning results every time and at a moments notice. It really is an instant gratification world," comments Steve Oakley of Practical Illusions, digital illusionist and Boris Blue user. "Boris Blue gives me not only the capabilities to create that distinct imagery and any wild look my clients seek it does so with the speed necessary to meet even the most crushing of deadlines. The real-time 3D capabilities are something we’ve been pushing pretty often for upping the look of what we are delivering and Blue has made our life a lot better. We’ve stacked up a couple dozen layers in 3D space and animated it, and it all played back in real-time. It is a joy to hit the space bar and watch this sort of thing play without rendering."
