Hi, I'm Orestis and I've been using 3D Software for the last 20 years, specializing in Character Animation and VFX.

I worked as 3D Generalist / TD in a fast-paced environment in Japan, followed by UX Design for Cinema 4D in Germany, where I got an under-the-hood view in software development and helped to develop the rigging, animation and motion graphics systems such as Fields.
I try to use my experiences to employ an interdisciplinary approach in development, searching for ideas and approaches from different areas of the industry.
I have recently started my freelancing career and I'm looking forward to help Blender develop in my areas of expertise.

I love the mentality of blender: offering a seamless, consistent platform for our creative work, cutting off the overheads jumping through different software. And of course, being free and open source, democratizing creativity and opportunities.

On my free time I like photography/videography, playing & developing video games, creating content or tools, and taking care of cats.

Orestis Konstantinidis (SimontheSorcerer) added a comment to T94662: Geometry Nodes: Capture Attribute with Instances not working as expected.

Hi @Jacques Lucke (JacquesLucke) ,
Taking it one step further, when instancing these on a points, the attribute no longer follows:

Orestis Konstantinidis (SimontheSorcerer) added a comment to T94662: Geometry Nodes: Capture Attribute with Instances not working as expected.

It's working as intended. The main issue here is that there is no warning that the viewer nodes evaluates a field but some inputs to the field are not available.

Orestis Konstantinidis (SimontheSorcerer) added a comment to T94164: Geometry Nodes: Wrong value tooltip with Vector Rotate node.

Thanks for the report. You're missing one important detail though. The second value is not 1.947, but 1.94707e-07. The e-07 means *10^(-7), which means that it's very close to zero, in the range of floating point inaccuracy.

Orestis Konstantinidis (SimontheSorcerer) added a comment to T92193: Geometry Nodes: Can't render attributes on new geometry.

Update: It seems I needed to use an "Assign Material" node for it to work, however I'd still expect it to work with the material assigned to the object. Since the material isn't restricted to a specific polygon group, it's reasonable to work automatically in the object geometry.
