For movie effects and compositing into tv footage - improvements in the the particle tools, and especially work to add volumetric particles and shaders for smoke and flame are desirable. The photorealism needed for movies though is in matching preexisting shots, something which the type of photorea...

This looks great. There was (briefly) a direct integration with Renderman in the Tuhopuu2 tree. Unfortunately, it's no longer part of the tree. I believe Jonathan Merritt was working on a set of Python classes to help bridge the two worlds; will this work be part of the presentation?

I understand the Blender UI desire to avoid click-drag behavior to avoid mouse strain, but this is one area where breaking that rule would work better. I've used tweak mode on Silo; it's just great. Really fast, and lets you sculpt vertices very, very quickly. Perhaps adding a setting or hotkey to t...

When I have tried pricing on existing renderfarms (e.g. rendercore.com), I found that one sizeable job (600 frames, 30 minutes/frame) ended up being approximately the cost of buying another computer to help ($800-$1000 USD). It gets done faster on the online renderfarm, but if the job can be done ov...

The ability to remap the mouse buttons has been added. Adding the ability to customize hotkeys, and to enable users to exchange text files with Maya/Max/whatever settings, would probably remove a significant number of the complaints. I think this is being worked on, but don't know when it is expecte...

This already exists, to some degree

You may wish to check out the blender/aqsis integration project at http://aqsis.sourceforge.net/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=16 This is an already-working translator from Blender to Aqsis. The translator is based on the Yafray exporter. It uses specially written Renderman shaders to mimic the light behavi...

I compiled bf-blender from scons; here's the thread on the forum. http://www.blender.org/modules.php?op=modload&name=phpBB2&file=viewtopic&t=3356 I also compiled Tuhopuu2 using the VC project files. Several directories need to be added to the project search path. Here's the forum thread: http://www....

Internal edge crease storage?

All the various methods of selecting edges sound interesting, but if possible could edge-based crease storage for subdivision surfaces be added first? After the internal storage routine is set, a variety of means/interfaces for accessing it can be tried. This provides a nice interim solution for peo...

OK, fixed it.

VC6 project files and current Tuhopuu2 CVS checkout broken?

I posted this before in another thread, but a separate subject line is more clear. I just tried compiling Tuhopuu2 again with MSVC6. I downloaded a fresh version of the tree from CVS, set all the include directories and library directories, and built the intern libraries without a problem. When I tr...

tuhopuu2 and VC 2003 compile errors

I successfully downloaded the tuhopuu2 module from CVS. It's at the same level as the bf-blender module checkout so the libraries should work for either. When I go through the same procedure as for bf-blender (set the compiler variables, cd to d:\blender\tuhopuu2, and type scons) it results in the f...
