Genometri: Technology

This is serious stuff !

I am curious about this....

"Genometri plans to move this possibility in the realm of 3D products. Genometri has developed proprietary genetic design technology which encodes intelligence into design files allowing customers to enjoy great creative freedom while ensuring that they do not exceed the limits set by technology, manufacturing processes and cost. This allows non-designers to design. Blog formats and web templates are good examples of this, where the compositional logic is embedded into template, allowing non-designers to create hi-quality well-designed blogs without being a professional one."

life-long wish....

i think i should retire and do this !

Poser 8 SR1 "texture Not Found etc" FIXED.

I had the infamous "Texture Not Found etc" problem.

I have found the source of my troubles with P8 sr1 and I have fixed it.

I had installed
Poser 8 into
D:\Poser 8
Legacy content into
D:\Poser 8 Content Legacy
Poser 8 New Content into:
D:\Poser 8 Content New

I believe this type of folder setup is the cause of my trouble.

I did it without problem for Poser 7 and Poser Pro, but it does not work for Poser 8.

I have since copied New Content over Legacy, followed by Poser 8 over combined content.

Poser 8 runs without error when all default content is together inside root runtime.

I added external runtimes on my external hard drives to library. I loaded content from the external runtimes without trouble.

I hope this is useful for anyone like me who assumes the content need not be installed into main runtime for Poser 8.

Carodan's Apollo Freebies

Needs Anton Kisiel's Apollo Maximus figure.

Freebies at RuntimeDNA now include older goodies

It all started with me watching HellBoy, and liking the character of Prince Nuada.

I recalled the old RuntimeDNA product Dragon Lord, which had long been retired from their store. That character for the DAZ3D figure Michael 2, would have made a great Nuada-type 3D Dark Prince in Poser.

So I asked at the RuntimeDNA forums, and eventually got hooked up with the creator, Colm. He very generously offered to let me have the oldie but goodie !

I made a couple of renders in Poser 7 and uploaded them to a forum thread at RuntimeDNA.

Colm started thinking maybe old items like that would still be good for some folks' art ideas, and hence the fresh leash of life as Freebies at RuntimeDNA.

Versatile Shader System for Poser

Wednesday, 10 June 2009

Careful with these confusing acronyms

Same Acronyms, Different Websites for Poser 3D Content:


Rich Photorealistic Content

Goodbye Poser People !!!

"How It Works 

RPC technology uses high quality image data combined with minimal polygonal geometry to create the illusion of 3D. By synthesizing image data as the camera moves through the scene, images effectively reproduce the appearance of a 3-Dimensional object without relying on complex polygonal geometry. A remarkably simple user interface makes the placement of RPC content a simple click-to-place operation. An icon is first used to orient RPC content within the geometry of your scene, and at render time, the RPC plug-in calculates the viewing angle of the RPC object relative to the virtual camera. The appropriate corresponding images are then synthesized, creating the illusion that a complete 3D object exists in the scene. "

RoadKill UVmapping tool

Commercial or Pro version launched as plug-in.

RANT

I am bored, fed up, and tired of all the bimbo-tic fashions for big-breasted, wide-hipped slutty-looking 3D human females. I want more fashion representation for the under-represented him-bos and pretty fae-boys.

Easter eggies

oh, well, with different textures, they would make very nice twin eggs for Diva's children (Japanese anime Blood+), if one thinks about doing 3D fan art.

Animeeple and 3Dvia

"Animeeple is an easy to use character animation tool. It allows you to browse our marketplace in 3D and animate the content you see in our marketplace. With Animeeple, you can:
» Apply animations onto characters
» Layer and sequence the animations
» Edit animations using procedural modifiers
» Render images and movies
» Animate your Second Life™ avatar
» Export content in various formats
» Import your own content and publish it in our marketplace."

Reads like a content creation, distribution, marketing and sales concept, probably along the same lines as 3Dvia - which is for creation of 3D meshes: "3DVIA allows you to find, upload & create your 3D content online", s 3Dvia claim.

Vue 7 Pioneer Free

Yes - it is free, but content usage, modification and/or export can be locked, depending on the content used. So, in my opinion, not entirely "free".
