New CG Channel Under Way!

Monday, February 8th, 2010 | Posted by Leonard Teo

Hi guys,

Welcome to the new CG Channel. We’ve been working hard over the last month to completely revamp CG Channel from the ground-up, and move everything over to a new content management system.

Still a work in progress!

As we’ve just moved everything over, we’re still doing some final testing and making sure that everything works before we officially open all areas of the new site. Although we’ve done everything that we can to ensure that the transition goes smoothly, we ask that you please be patient with us as we do our best to debug and fix functionality as issues turn up.

Why the change?

Some of you might be wondering why we’re doing this and what was wrong with the old CG Channel. Our main reason for doing it is because the old CG Channel was built on a content management system that is almost a decade old and wasn’t maintained anymore. After Gnomon acquired CG Channel in 2008, it was clear that this system was preventing us from further improving the website and offering the best content for you. We believe that the new direction that CG Channel is taking will result in much better content for the digital entertainment arts community worldwide.

What next?

At the end of February 2010, we will be officially announcing our new content direction and rolling out some exciting new content that we believe will greatly benefit the entertainment arts community.

We’d like to hear from you!

If you have any comments, feedback, bug reports, rants, raves or suggestions, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact us at admin@cgchannel.com.

Best regards,

The CG Channel Crew

Matt McCorkell, Editorial Director

    First reply. Good luck!

    Not to be rude but I would say, pretty long overdue.. I think a brighter,cleaner,sleeker non ‘gamer’ look is in order. It would be cool if a ‘cool tech and gadgets’ section was added. not just the normal ‘ipad – pico projectors type stuff but the best in gadgets and tools that could be used in production, ie RED cameras
    stereoscopic 3d equipment. motion control, capture etc.

    Well congratulations on the new look! This is really refreshing! I agree that it is long overdue, but it’s better later then never!

  • Adan Vazquez

    Defenitely more clean design!, more cool!

    A very refreshing new look. I’m already feeling like it’ll be easier to get around and I’ll be able to get to the best content quicker. Well done!

  • Bryan Pritchard

    SWEET!

  • Espen

    Looking great people! :) Just make sure that ALL your links open up in a new window ;D

  • Leonard Teo

    Thanks for the comments guys!

    Espen, we actually decided against opening all links in a new window because it’s 2010 and people can choose whether to open in a new window or tab on their own!

    Yes, it is a long overdue re-vamp. I should add though, that this is a totally new team that is running CG Channel now. We’re not part of the original Montreal-based group that started CG Channel. The Gnomon group acquired CG Channel and we have every intention of making this an awesome site for content on entertainment production.

  • Espen

    Yeah i guess most of us know how to open a link in a new window, i just think its a hassle. Why not run a poll on it to see what people prefer? :)

  • Espen

    I am ofcourse talking about links taking you out of the main site :P

    Loving it. Good stuff.
