Re: Siggraph tuesday 29

- BOF feedback was positive, not much criticism or complaints, most people seemed quite happy. Of course the UNDO topic came up, and the everlasting lack of IMPORT/EXPORT. Especially that last topic we really need to make progress. Improving modeling tools (curves/meshes) is high at the list too. I...

I'm sitting here watching "Out of the present" on DVD, about "Sergei Krikalev" the cosmonaut that was left up while Russian Government collapsed.. The thing I like about the film is every is so normal, I mean the way a spacestation is treated, the hum of the station, how they work, is so normal, not...

This feature should be selectable, I tend to rotate the model to get a sense of what is behind or in front, but sometimes there is a need to select points inside the object, especially if working with multiple layers. I also tend to work in perspective not orthogonal views.. So features like this wo...

I would think that open source also changes the roles of the project manager.. Unless source code was developed for money.. What relationship would a developer desire of a project manager outside the confines of a commercial development headed by investors and executives.. Who's moral is the project...

Maybe we should advertise? Let me see, point out all the good stuff about blender that makes sense to companies: 1. Its got a large untapped market. 2. Its made up mostly of people from age 18 to 40. 3. It takes up less than 5 megabytes of diskspace. 4. It does modelling, animation, compositing, aud...

I've been getting it to but mine doesn't fail, sounds like a missing library in python.. Or something that blender expects from python.. But blender still works.. That would probably mean that to get full python support you would have to install python and set the Python path in your environment var...

Well we should go over there and petition access to the Dome, its
state owned.. Ha!!! then get some laser pointers and have a laser light
show.. I wonder if Ton packed his laser pointer, it tends to
be a fun thing at the SIGGRAPH animation screenings..

Re: Project management is where it's at ...

Niether, Open Source is free (develop it adhoc) Not really much of an option is it - 'adhoc'. Open source development can be very organised, directed and fast. Should the Foundation take more of a development role - quite possibly. Management of the project, especially one this size, is the most im...

Furthermore they might also note that my messages get read more than others.. I don't know why this is.. I liked Ingee Bee's post about fixing the site and only saw like around a 100 or so during the week, and I will get about 100 in the first day or so.. Either there are a lot of people interested ...

This spawned an idea.. http://www.bl3nder.com/ideas/HDRI.php As for what Money_yay has to say.. The CVS is the undo button.. Without it, what you say would happen.. It also allows for parallel developements to exist, that might drive Ton crazy, but what makes it into blender's binary distributions i...

you're right thorax, the topic was your essay, not your message formatting. my apologies. WRT your proposal. I personally cannot see the benefits of this smalltalk approach, perhaps because i've never tried it. My opinion is that blender's interface is quite well optimised, with each area functioni...

My first hemispherical dome projected animation..

This only took about 3-10 hours to produce but took 36 hours to render.. This animation was a test, so if you look at my other animations you can see this isn't my best work. Its a kind of roller coaster ride based on a blend file available on my website, I added some terrain below that gives the ef...
