Vue 6 Teaser

Friday, June 30th, 2006

E-on have a teaser animation for Vue 6 up on their web site. I had to download the latest version of Quick Time to play it but I’m glad I did because while it is short it is also very impressive.

V5I: Bifurcated Lava Flow

Thursday, June 29th, 2006

An updated version of this article is now available on my website at Creating a Bifurcated Lava Flow in Vue Infinite. After more experimentation I’ve finally achieved a Bifurcated Lava Flow in Vue 5 Infinite that I’m happy with. To make this I first looked at some maps of Bifurcated flows. I then drew a […]

V5I: EcoSystem to Objects Python Script

Thursday, June 29th, 2006

A little python script that will place a cube at the same location as each instance in an EcoSystem. It gives each cube the same rotation as the instance. It also scales it by the same scale factor in each direction as the instance. There is an additional parameter to allow the scaling to be […]

A Novel Experience

Wednesday, June 28th, 2006

After a hiatous of several months I opened my half finished novel and started to tackle the scene I got stuck on. I hit a continuity error that I didn’t really want to fix in the first draft but didn’t think I could afford to leave unfixed either. It is now fixed so I can […]

Vue Python for Beginners Updated

Tuesday, June 27th, 2006

I’ve spent the evening updating my Vue Python for Beginners tutorial. What started as a few minor tweaks turned into a major reorganisation but hopefully it was worth the effort.

Virtual Fashion Animation

Monday, June 26th, 2006

A little experiment with Virtual Fashion, Poser and Vue tonight to see how well the cloth animates. The main lesson I’ve learned is not to move the animated figure too fast and to keep the animation smooth. The excerpt attached is rather short because poor Victoria’s virtual dress became quite indecent in about fifteen more […]

Virtual Fashion for Poser

Sunday, June 25th, 2006

I picked up Virtual Fashion Basic for Poser yesterday. I’d only ever really experimented a tiny bit with the cloth room in poser before and I’m certainly no expert. My initial experiments have had mixed results. I am starting to learn a few important lessons though. Avoid fine detail, size the cloth a bit on […]

Thank You For Smoking

Saturday, June 24th, 2006

Went to see "Thank You For Smoking" last night and really enjoyed it. An excellent satire about spin, PR and media manipulation. Smoking is more of a McGuffin to hang the story on than an issue the film explored. To go into it in any detail would risk spoiling it so I won’t. The acting […]

Google Sitemapped

Wednesday, June 21st, 2006

I’ve added a Google Sitemap XML file to my site today. While my site is still small I want to add a more conventional sitemap for visitors and related links navigation in the navigation bar too. I’m trying to settle on a search solution to add as well. Overkill for a small site but why […]

New Pages

Tuesday, June 20th, 2006

Even with a two hour interuption for football I’ve added two new pages to the impworks site tonight: one for VueDynamics and a contact form on the contacts page. Despite my best efforts in the limited remaining time tonight I have yet to succeed in Bifurcating my virtual lava flow.
