Are You Sitting Comfortably Then I'll Begin

Saturday, May 20th, 2006

The teaser at the end of tonight’s Doctor Who for next week’s episode, The Idiot’s Lantern, included Maureen Lipman uttering the immortal line from Listen with Mother of "Are you sitting comfortably then I’ll begin". The Doctor used a bit of it at the start of the episode School Reunion. Are they just teasing the […]

V5I: Exploding VOB

Saturday, May 20th, 2006

I was sat on the bus coming back from doing my usual Saturday shopping and I was wondering if there was any way I can share VueDynamic with Vue users who don’t have Vue 5 Infinite. One possibility is to generate pre animated VOB files. So as an experiment I’ve made two simple shrapnel explosions […]

Not the Foggiest

Friday, May 19th, 2006

I’ve been playing around with an animation of a camera moving past the Mill in the Fairytale Places set from Daz. I’ve not got a finished animation to show off but I did do a simple picture of it that shows off the fog effect I’ve been working on quite well I think. Once I’ve […]

Arædan Draft 2 Done

Thursday, May 18th, 2006

I wrote the missing fight scene. Which turned out to be a lot of dialogue so it may need rewriting in the third draft. I’m going to pass copies to a few friends now to see what they think. I’ve also decided to cut the accents off the name so it’s easier to figure out […]

V5I: Camera Animation Save and Load Updated

Thursday, May 18th, 2006

FuzzyVizion discovered a problem with the Vue Camera Animation Save and Load script I wrote. I’ve updated the Load script so that by default it creates a new camera (which you can choose a name for). Both scripts come in a small zip file – Camera Animation Save and Load.

Dull Website Stuff

Wednesday, May 17th, 2006

I know. I know. Anyone who has ready this for any length of time knows I’m trying to finish my new website so I can launch it on the unsuspecting world. I spent the last two hours fighting with the content trying to make my About Me page not too serious but not too silly […]

Things Going Boom in Vue 5 Infinite

Tuesday, May 16th, 2006

A day later than I’d planned but here are the animations made using Vue 5 Infinite and the VueDynamics script of a space ship (From Power Fusion 3D) exploding for no good reason other than I could make Things Go Boom. The first animation is the render from Vue. The second has been enhanced with […]

Tonight Postponed

Monday, May 15th, 2006

I was going to post a little animation tonight but it wont be finished rendering for a few hours yet.

Mission Mundane

Sunday, May 14th, 2006

So having gotten my thought on Mission Impossibe (like anyone cares) off my chest here is the rest of my Sunday. Two or maybe three hours spent doing some really boring reading about my pension including House of Commons reports (Dull), company statements (Dull and Unhelpful) and campaign web sites (Biased). Time I’ll never get […]

This Message Will Self Destruct in 5 Seconds…

Sunday, May 14th, 2006

Sorry couldn’t resist the title. I bet if I did a search I’d find hundreds like it already. What can I say it is a classic line. Well hats off to Mr Abrams. The best of the franchise so far. I liked the first one but it lacked the team element for most of the […]
