Vue Search Sites Automated and Other Site Tweaks

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

Back in October I did some fiddling with the Vue sites search engine that uses Google custom search to let you search the sites in my Vue links directory. Each time the list of sites changed I had to manually upload a file listing the sites to be included that was generated from the database […]

CityEngine Constructivism WiP

Friday, January 7th, 2011

Here are two quick Vue 9 renders of work in progress models made with CityEngine 2010.3 Indie. Since I got CityEngine in November I’ve been tinkering with it working on trying to get to grips with its CGA language and make some semi realistic models. Yesterday, after coming across some photographs of architectural models of […]

SkinVue9 Review

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

I’ve used David Burdick’s SkinVue since it first came out.  This handy tool for Vue speeds up the process of making Poser figures look good in Vue.  It can work with figures brought in as Poser, obj, or Collada import so both Poser and Daz Studio users can make use of it.  SkinVue can work […]

Vue Site Maintenance

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

With all of the different flavours of Vue now available I’ve spent a bit of time cleaning up my unofficial Vue News blog. I’ve even tweaked the Vue Squidoo lens although those get so little traffic I’m seriously tempted to knock them on the head.

Vue 9 Sea Monster

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

Last night I started messing around with a picture I was messing around with in Vue 7. I was never 100% happy with the lighting of the original. The monster was too visible – I wanted it to be lurking and menacing. Now Vue 9 has the wonderful new relighting feature so I made a […]

Quiet because Too Many New Toys

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010

If it seems like I’ve gone quite quiet here its because I’m playing with new toys. First of all I’ve been getting to grips with Vue 9 Infinite with its excellent new features. Re-lighting is a wonderful enhancement and is a massive time saver for me. Texture resizing is also a massive time saver for […]

Vue Python: GetFirstHitObject Tutorial

Sunday, October 24th, 2010

I’ve been meaning to write some tutorials on writing Vue’s Python for awhile.  The obvious place to start would be with some basic stuff.  I will get to some of those eventually.  First though one is a short tutorial on Vue’s GetFirstHitObject.  I get more Emails about this than any other function.  Hopefully this will […]

Vue Python Script Pages, Links Directory and Search Updated

Friday, October 8th, 2010

I’ve tweaked the display of the Vue links directory and the Google custom search of the site’s in the directory to hopefully make them easier to use.  I’ve also worked through all the python script and so they’re all displayed with a code highlighter.

It’s that day of the week again. Here is my 8th updated Vue lighting rig which this week uses two lights shining horizontally on a figure
