EcoSystem to CSV / CSV to EcoSystem Tested in Vue 7

Sunday, November 16th, 2008

I’ve checked EcoSystem to CSV / CSV to EcoSystem in Vue 7 Infinite and its working. As with the other scripts once I’ve tested them all I’ll update the impworks web pages.

I Just Want My Glasses Back Now

Saturday, November 15th, 2008

I put my glasses in for new lenses last week and so I’m using an old pair that are so close to the same prescription that I can see almost as well as normal. What I’d forgotten is how heavy these are compared to my current glasses and how being so much bigger they catch […]

'Addicted' to Addiction

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

As I get older one thing that annoys me more and more is the quantity of what passes for journalism. The rise of editorial over actual reporting. The need to have a journalist at the scene of the event to give a live report to camera and have a nice chat with the studio where […]

Sunday, November 9th, 2008

I’ve checked my Vue python script Cloud Builder in Vue 7 Infinite. No problems detected so just a small update to the Readme file to note the test.

Centre Finder 0.2

Sunday, November 9th, 2008

I’ve just updated and tested my Vue python script Centre Finder for Vue 7 Infinite. No significant changes just a little tweak so the cube it creates is name "Centre". The zip file on the Centre Finder page has been updated and I’ll update the web page itself later.

The Dark Knight

Monday, September 1st, 2008

Went to see The Dark Knight last Saturday – got back too late to want to go online and write this (very short) review. Enjoyed it. It was a bit long but I couldn’t see anywhere particularly to cut it without making it a poorer film. It also takes a brave script writer to keep […]

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

Thursday, August 14th, 2008

Wow. How can you take a franchise as good as the resurected Mummy and pretty much destroy it in 112 minutes? Could it be the completely miss cast replacements? Maria Bello was no Rachel Weisz. Luke Ford just wasn’t interesting. Perhaps thats part of it too. I know Anthony Wong Chau-Sang, Michelle Yeoh, Jet Li […]

Watch out for Floating Key frames in Vue

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

I was tinkering with an animation script for Vue when I discovered something I thought I’d share to save others scratching their heads… I was using SetCurrentFrame() to set the key frame for the animation. I was later returning to an earlier key frame to apply a tweak to the same objects animation. The current […]

Refactoring the Restroom

Monday, July 21st, 2008

After spending a few hours refactoring python code on an ongoing (not yet ready for release) Vue python script I’m reminded of a cartoon that used to be on the wall of the Guild of Students projection room. Under a picture of Charlie Brown was the line "Working here is like wetting yourself in dark […]

Sugary Pulp Research Goodness

Monday, July 14th, 2008

I love it when research material falls into my lap. I came across a book about the espionage and shady goings on in Shanghai in the 1920s-40s era for the massive sum of £1.99 in my local remaindered book shop on Saturday. Handy since some of NitS is set there around then and involves shady […]
