Videos now on YouTube

Saturday, November 7th, 2009

Various test animations I’ve made are now on the impworks YouTube channel. I’ve been back to the posts they come from and added the embeded videos in. One day I may make a video that lasts a little bit longer than these tiny little things do.

New Vue Free Stuff Pages

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

I don’t have a lot of Vue free stuff other than my python scripts but I’ve started a new section tonight to make it easier to find without digging through the blog.

Film Noir Desk

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009

This is my first Vue 8 Infinite render made as part of a tutorial about linear light sources for Vue I’m working on. The majority of the scene is the Film Noir Detective Office but the desk lamp is my first model made with Moments of Inspiration.

Other People's Games

Saturday, October 31st, 2009

I’ve started adding stuff for other people’s games to impworks today.  First up some stuff that was on my old Mudhole web site for Gomi Designs’ Abduction! Bits for Trash Tokyo;  things for SLA Industries; odds and ends for 7th Sea; remnants of Ravenloft campaigns and well anything else I find sitting around looking like […]

Floodgate by Alistair MacLean

Friday, October 30th, 2009

I picked up a lot of Alistair MacLean novels as reprints at a local book shop a few years ago and enjoyed a lot of them but there were a few gaps. So when I spotted Floodgate going for 75p in a charity shop I thought I’d fill the gap and give it a go. […]

Vue Cloud Tutorial Night

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

I’ve added pages for two of the Vue tutorials that were previously lost in my blog to my tutorial pages tonight: Cloud Layer Sculpting in Vue Punching Holes in the Sky I’ve also changed the rather empty front page of my Vue section to include the latest post from the Vue News Blog and the […]

Blog Page Redesign

Monday, October 26th, 2009

I’ve made some changes to the impworks site’s blog "Too Many Ideas". The design is a bit cleaner and nicer with its parts more distinct. I’ve separated the main post from the comments and put some new styling on the comments to make them stand out a bit more. Hopefully its better than it was […]

HMS Illustrious in Liverpool

Saturday, October 24th, 2009

Went down for a quick look at HMS Illustrious docked in Liverpool today which turned into several hours of watching the helicopter display, buildings, canal, ships on the river and other stuff.

Where Did All the Good Spam Go?

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

The hardest thing I find about writing (after the actual slog of the writing part) is naming characters. It can become a real drag to find the right name and it makes the slog so much harder. So a couple of years ago I started using names pulled randomly from the names of senders on […]

Striped Lighting Gels for Vue

Saturday, October 17th, 2009

This is the first set of ten, free, lighting gels materials with a theme of stripes for use with Vue 7 and above. These arn’t neat, uniform stripes.  Some are quite gentle wavy lines while some are broken up at varied angles. I’ve created this set from scans of slides I made for the Kaffeine […]
