MetropoLight (MLT renderer) available for download - 08/16/05

MetropoLight is a simple freeware global illumination rendering program that uses the Metropolis Light Transport algorithm to render images.MLT is a Monte Carlo method for solving the light transport problem. It is inspired by the Metropolis sampling method in computational physics.In short, a sequence of light transport paths is generated (based on Monte Carlo Markov Chain sampling) by randomly mutating a single current path. The probability density of visiting each path is proportional to its contribution to the final image. This algorithm has the particularity to be unbiased and can be orders of magnitude more efficient than previous unbiased approaches. It is highly recommended fo... Read Full Story

Animation Festival submission - Cineme? - 09/07/05

I've been looking into the possibility of submitting an animated short or two to this year's Cineme Festival. Acceptance of my work means exposure toanimation/film professionals acting as jurors aswell as having my piece(s) broadcast on televisionand distributed on a compilation DVD. As far as I can tell, submission is free. Sounds good so far.   What concerns me is the barrage of contractual legalesethat cineme makes you agree to for the submission. (Youcan find it at - scroll to the bottom and you'll see a series of windows with said verbiage.)   It seems like the agreement is to sign your life awayand seems excessive from my layman perspe...

New CG Movie -Highly Realistic and Very Serious - 09/09/05

Well- this is the first time I've seen this type of film attempted in that, unlike Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, this is set in a very realistic historic context. It's somehow a cross-story between Anne Frank and Emily Dickinson (two very cheery subjects, no?). Anyway---from what I gather form the synopsis the overall treatment reminds me a little of the interconnected stories in The Hours. Aside form getting to cast a near replica of Anne Frank (because she's all CG) I don't entirely get why a film maker would want to do a project in this manner. Realistic humans have been almost universally doomed to failure in CG films (although Polar Express seemed to do pretty well this past Chr... Read Full Story

New Maya Plugin - Structure analysis with Maya, CS-FEM - 09/20/05

Innovative. Structural study with Maya. It is for architects and designers. You can sketch out and detect a new creative architectural space without engineers.  It is difficult to input objects in structural design programs so even though 3D models can be imported from other CAD programs, the imported model may not be in an editable form. It is also difficult to iterate in 3D modeling, designing and presentation. Architects and designers want to design more quickly on the desktop before the more accurate design phase.With the CS-FEM plug-in, Maya is the best structure analysis software for architects and designers. The CS-FEM plug-in for Maya is the simplest program for structural ... Read Full Story

GroundWiz released - procedural 3d terrain map for 3ds max - 10/27/05

Gugila releases GroundWiz, procedural 3d terrain map for 3ds max. GroundWiz is all about terrain. It is a procedural 3d terrain map that can be used as a diffuse map, a bump map or for that matter, any other map type. It uses fractal algorithms to generate terrain textures and mimic real-life terrain. When you are creating terrain maps, transitions between different materials are hard to control with tools that pre-existing applications offer. Typical blending methods of mixing two or more materials don't give realistic results. That is where GroundWiz comes into action. Numerous controls give users the ability to control the look of terrain materials while seamlessly int... Read Full Story
