Greyscalegorilla, the leader in providing professional training and tools to help motion designers and 3D artists, announces the launch of Greyscalegorilla Plus. The new cloud-based subscription service leverages Greyscalegorilla’s long-standing reputation for technical and creative innovation by giving subscribers streamlined access to its entire online library of award-winning plugins, hand-crafted materials and textures, HDRIs and professional training from top industry artists.
Compatible with leading 3D software applications such as Maxon Cinema 4D and popular render engines including Redshift by Maxon, OTOY Octane and Autodesk Arnold, the extensive collection of Greyscalegorilla Plus assets are relied upon by the world’s top artists and studios to meet real-world production needs and expand career skill sets.
The introduction of Greyscalegorilla Plus reflects a strategic refocus allowing Greyscalegorilla to quickly develop new 3D production-ready tools that will be added regularly into the platform’s ever-expanding library of time-saving resources. Plus subscribers have unlimited access to frequent product updates that are automatically downloaded into their account HUB.
According to Greyscalegorilla Founder and CEO Nick Campbell, the demand for reliable, high-quality 3D content and resources that engage audiences continues to expand exponentially, whether for use in commercial or personal projects, cryptoart NFTs, social media videos, high-end VFX, broadcast motion graphics, commercials, game cinematics, live events, architectural and product visualization and more.
“Our mission at Greyscalegorilla is to help 3D artists achieve their best work,” Campbell says. “As technology and innovation continue to define the direction of 3D motion graphics and design, Greyscalegorilla Plus is the next-generation platform that builds on our collective years of experience as professional 3D artists, educators and developers to bring ongoing value to our customers. The Plus subscription membership supports artists at any level to create realistic renders faster, focus on craftsmanship, and obtain training from industry pros to future-proof their creative experiences.”
Chad Ashley, Creative Director at Greyscalegorilla, adds, “We designed Greyscalegorilla Plus with the professional in mind. Whether artists are searching for materials, HDRIs, textures in our library, or looking for a plugin to tackle a challenging brief, Plus has them covered. And it’s all right at their fingertips. Add in Plus’ vast amount of training and you have the ultimate creative subscription.”
Paul Babb, Global Head of Marketing at Maxon, notes that for more than a decade, the Greyscalegorilla team has been the first stop for essential resources and training for new and seasoned Cinema 4D users: “Their new Greyscalegorilla Plus subscription product delivers incredible value – must-have plugins, exceptional materials and assets, and pro training – to help 3D artists get the most out of C4D.”
Wanda Meloni, President and Senior Analyst, at M2 Insights, adds, “For the past 10 years the Greyscalegorilla team has trailblazed accessible online learning experiences. The market for content creation, digital storytelling and 3D graphics has never been more in demand. The Greyscalegorilla Plus platform will serve professionals and beginners alike with the latest tools and design techniques to further their artistic and technical skills.”
