Blatherings

as per request
Previous | Next by pyrex 03 July, 2003 - 7:57 AM

So, after a minor discussion on the eh.. choices and reprecussions of what material to post on this site (and such, etcetera), I'll post a little design-related material as per erato's request.

Here is the showreel of a South African based design firm. 13 MB, Quicktime.

cool! a lot of those designs reminded me of flyers. i bet there was sound to go with that but alas, i have no sound card.

i wish i could do something like that. the closest i've come is playing god with Bryce3D.

Yeah, there's some funky music to accompany it, although it diverts slightly from the usual music design firms prefer to dub their videos with.

Ah.. abstract design is so beautiful when choreographed correctly. Although, it's becoming more and more mainstream and they're running out of ways to diversify it.. Hopefully more firms will deviate more and come up with more alternatives.

Anyway, you want more? I got more.

"Infinite diversity in infinite combinations" - bonus points for anyone who can trace that quote.

You mean the Star Trek quote, or the original source that Roddenberry "leveraged"?


7/3/2003 >> pyrex

I was going for a broader appeal/crowd so yes, the Star Trek quote. Heh.

- render recieves sword of razor-sharp knowledge +1! -

render knows how to type "google.com"


7/3/2003 >> pyrex

I merely provided it as a convenience. If you perceived it as something else..


7/3/2003 >> erato

have u done any flash design?


7/3/2003 >> pyrex

I've played with flash a bit, made a few movies with a friend of mine but haven't really expanded on it much since then. I know I definitely should, and I'd love to play more with motion vector graphics, but I get more from the instant results of PS, 3DS MAX, etc. Plus I never seem to have the time these days :-/


7/3/2003 >> erato

i hear that. ever heard or played with bryce3d?


7/3/2003 >> pyrex

Oh definitely. I use Bryce 5 from time to time to handle some simple renders, plus it's kinda fun to play with the ease-of-use of the app as a whole from time to time.

However.. hehe.. If I had Character Studio and a complete motion capture setup I'd be going nuts in 3DS MAX :-P


7/3/2003 >> erato

i just saw bryce was bought by corel and is up to 5 now.. wow, it's been awhile! i love that lil app. altho it made my AMD chug, it was one of my fav graphical apps. Wish i had more time to get into that stuff. I also wish I still had the connections from college to get the apps for free...

The times they are a changin..


7/3/2003 >> pyrex

Who needs connections when one can do it on.. one's.. own. Yeah that sounds about right.


7/3/2003 >> erato

care to elaborate or share a link?


7/3/2003 >> pyrex

Well there's the ever-crappy Kazaa, but I wouldn't place too much confidence in that.. The best file-sharing app, I find, is Direct Connect, mostly because there's a lot of big hubs in Sweden. Each hub is.. well just that, a hub where hundreds, sometimes thousands of users connect to share files.

The hubs usually have rules regarding minimum amounts of sharing (share 5 gigs or you can't connect, etc), but I've never run into files with incorrect filenames (a la Kazaa), nor have I ever gotten a virus from them.

Actually, this is a much better client. However, the above link has more general info.


7/3/2003 >> Casey

Yes, too much peer to peer contact has always been a good way to catch viruses.


7/3/2003 >> pyrex

Hehe, P2PTDs.

Well it was funny for about 15 seconds.


7/3/2003 >> Casey

No, it was clever, I was smirking for at least 20 seconds...
