I grabbed this from Bruce Branit’s Facebook feed; it’s a very clear explanation of why you may be seeing some people avatars going bright green, as I’ve done with mine on Twitter and Facebook.
I’ve known Bruce–who is a talented filmmaker and successful VFX artist / studio owner-since the 1990s and I have a lot of respect for him. If you want to check out his demo reel, I did a post about it a couple of months ago. His explanation here is compelling. Bruce is no hippie or union agitator. He’s a business owner who moved to Kansas to escape the Hollywood culture.
Don’t let the word ‘union’ scare you. I’m a conservative and this is an issue I still care about. There’s a real issue of government-funded unfair competition that’s destroying a creative, modern American industry.
Listen to what Bruce has to say here.
