Don’t Make the Little Guy Angry…

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

…You’ll not like him when he’s angry. My avatar was mistaken for a goblin’s mugshot and he really isn’t happy about it.  First he’s never been in trouble with the law.  So they don’t have his DNA, clawprints or photograph on file.  Secondly he’s not a goblin:  Goblins don’t have tails or wings – at […]

Sunrise City / Finally 64 Bits

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

    A quick post for a quick render – Sunrise City – my first proper test render with my new 64 Bit PC built entirely with it.  My last PC was supposed to be 64 Bit but there was a complication in the manufacturing (otherwise known as Dell used some 32 Bit parts thus […]

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Movie Review

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

I thought Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was a hundred and thirty-seven minutes of silly pirate fun. It missed some of the magic of the PotC: The Curse of the Black Pearl and lacked some of the elements that sustained PotC: Dead Man’s Chest and PotC: At World’s End. However better than some […]

Super Injunction and Libel Woman

Friday, April 29th, 2011

A Vue 9.5 Infinite, CityEngine and SkinVue 9 Experiment Every time I hear someone talking about the latest Super Injunction I can’t help but think it sounds like one of the lesser known super hero comics.  Someone who comic fans love but the rest of us will only discover when they get a movie. No […]

Cloud Picture Made with Vue 9.5 Infinite

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

One of the most popular pages here is Cloud Layer Sculpting in Vue and with all the new Vue 9.5 cloud features I thought I would be a good idea to blow the dust of it and rework it to use the new features. Here is the original for comparison… Update: I’ve been busy and […]

Blue Yonder – A Vue 9.5 Landscape

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

So this is my first proper Vue 9.5 render post. A single cloud layer over an infinite procedural terrain with two texture layers controlled by altitude and slope angle. I sometimes feel I’m cheating a bit when I post one of these because Vue does so much of the work while letting me get on […]

Accretion

Friday, March 18th, 2011

When I took this picture of buildings all jostling for space with each other on a Liverpool street I was going to just post it as a throw away picture post. However this was one of the views, with its variety of buildings from different eras, that inspired my render Accretion City. So I thought […]

CityEngine Vue Review

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

I reviewed CityEngine Indie last week, here is my review of CityEngine Vue.  If you read last weeks review I’ll not apologise for lifting large parts of it with only minor changes as there are only minor differences between the two products.  CityEngine Vue is exactly the same underlying software as all the other versions […]

Accretion City

Saturday, January 22nd, 2011

I’ve tried to create a picture like this for some time – a cityscape with layers of different types of building like real cities have. I started this attempt earlier today and I think its my best attempt to date. Its built up of several CityEngine created models and a few from Cornucopia 3D. The […]

Vue Free Objects Page

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011

Google may want to organise the Web – I just want to organise my website.  So since I had a couple of freebies for Vue floating around on Too Many Ideas without a proper home and I think I may have some more on the way I’ve made a new home for Free Vue Objects […]
