Too many 3D characters - especially photorealistic characters, do not have correct epicanthic folds in their morphs.

My nVidia driver woes (updated)

Update: The problem still exists ! Even with the earlier driver for my nVidia Card, instead of up-to-date version, my machine still has the boot-up sickness.  Hah ! I am not the only one on the internet !  This is the awful Kernel Power Event 41 which many other people have also experienced.  Microsoft do not appear to be able to resolve this for its customers, judging frmo their vague and unhelpful Knowledge Base article on the problem.

Since 09 August 2011, during which nVidia released updates for the GeForce 8600 GT card, which I am using on my 3D CG machine, and with subsequent updates to that one, my computer has been giving a lot of trouble at boot-up.

Basically, since the updates, my PC takes a very long time to process a boot into Windows 7 Home Premium, during which the monitor stays blank (dark, unlighted), and the hard disk activity light does not light up on the box, fooling anyone into thinking the system has shut down.

I found out that if I left it for 2-3 minutes, it actually continues processing and re-boots into windows, with an error message saying that Windows has recovered from an error and will notify of a solution when one is found, or something to that effect.  In fact, doing the test re-booting several times, I even observed the BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH for Windows 7 !

Otherwise, the machine operates fine after it boots into OS.

I even had my usual tech guy look at it, and the only thing he could do after 1 week was to remove the nVidia card and advise me to run the machine on the embedded Intel graphics accelerator chip.  Paid him 80 bucks for his time, bah.

So, over the Halloween weekend, in which younger folk are partying while older folk like me fiddle around with hardware glitches, I uninstalled all the nVidia device drivers (latest, greatest ones, Bro).

I tried various re-installation configurations without the bluddy 3D Vision options, and PhysX options.  Boot-up trouble persisted.

Uninstalled every darn bluddy nVidia item.  Switch monitor source connection to motherboard Intel GAC plug.

Searched the nVidia website and went for the release version device driver of pre-09 August 2011.  For my GAC, this would be:
275.33-desktop-win7-winvista-32bit-english-whql.exe

I installed it using custom installation option, and only installed the device driver, nothing else.

Re-Boot.  Re-Booting goes right through to OS, no hanging black monitor screen, no dark hard disk activity light, no longer booting-up, no blue screen of death, no re-booting.

And this is the Windows take on my working nVidia driver:


Moral of my story - device driver updates are not always the latest greatest thing to have.

Shime / Shide folding technique

The most important item to review for English Language information on this matter, is this video on YouTube:
http://youtu.be/FRskh3FxCqo
Of all the links I can find, this video is the most serious and probably most authoritative practical guide about folding a Shi-me ( or Shi-de still trying to find out which is the correct Kanji).

Heed the warnings in the video. One should not casually or carelessly create a Shide. This is a ritual and a ritual item for the Shinto religion.

Other less formal websites include:
Shinto Ritual in words and Pictures
This article refers to the white, zigzag-folded stripes of paper as Shi-de. I do not know (yet) what the Kanji of that is.

Elsewhere, they are referred to as Shi-Me or 注連 .
See http://www.onmarkproductions.com/html/shrine-guide-2.shtml#shimenawa

My own comments: Well, I've tried doodling with various 3D mesh modelling apps - including Sculpt3D, iDough! and Sunny3D, but it's not that easy twiddling fingers in what is basically a 2D GUI. I think the next phase should be haptic input device for 3D virtual mesh modelling, example, haptic gloves, chisels, scissors,etc.

alembic - updated

alembic - Project Hosting on Google Code
Quote:
"Alembic is an open framework for storing and sharing 3D geometry data that includes a C++ library, a file format, and client plugins and applications. It was initially developed in 2010 by teams from Sony Pictures Imageworks and Industrial Light & Magic, and development continues today.
OK, what is Alembic?
At the highest, most simplistic level, Alembic is "merely" a hierarchical sampled data storage format. It is intended to be used to store a baked representation of animated 3D geometry, in the same vein as GTO or OBJ. It was designed to facilitate handoff of data between disciplines, vendors, and applications.

"At a lower, less simplistic level, Alembic is designed to be very efficient with its use of memory and disk space. Much effort has been directed towards automatic and transparent mechanisms for data de-duplication and reading/writing as little data as possible in order to fully represent the data that has been given to it.

"Alembic is not a live scenegraph, an asset management system, a renderer, or replacement for OpenGL.

"Why was it made?
To create an open standard for geometry sharing
To support a baked geometry workflow
enable easy hand-off between disciplines
enable faster workflows leading to greater productivity."
