About me

meI’m Martin Geupel, a 3D generalist living in Bavaria, Germany.
My main areas of expertise lie in Shading/Lighting/Rendering, Compositing and Scripting.

I started working with 3dsmax back in 2004 as a hobby and began studying the different aspects of creating cg-imagery.

Later, in 02/2009, I started working at Ground-Studios, a VFX Studio in Duesseldorf www.ground-studios.com

I enjoy developing pipeline tools to automate repetitive tasks and various scripts to make working in max faster and more pleasant. Solving problems and getting rid of workflow barriers is a great motivation for me. For this purpose I’m mostly relying on Maxscript but I’m also capable of writing tools in Python and C#.
Recently I’ve also started to learn and practice with SideFX Houdini.


Tools I’m currently primarily working with (plus many others of course):

  • Autodesk 3ds Max
    + VRay
    + Corona Renderer
    + Forest Pack Pro
    + GrowFx
  • SideFX Houdini
  • Maxscript / C# / Python
  • Substance Designer + Painter
  • Blackmagic Fusion
  • Affinity Photo
