Damn Borg, you is up early. (Unless you’ve joined the night shifters… even on our days off, we find it hard to fully return to the “Normal” daily lifestyle.)

Just spent an hour with computer updates, only to discover after restart that there are 20 “new” updates ready to be installed… Ridiculous. I did just install the 39 “new” updates minutes ago.

Mind you, it was worth it… I neglected updates for so long, I didn’t realize Nvidia driver was out of date.

I don’t know about #2… some of these flat screen TVs don’t have many controls or mounted high on the wall where you can’t get to them so you’d best keep track of that remote… seems like the authors not to technically savvy to know that.

@Spyro:  Well if you hate painted on “muscles”  you probably would hate this:  http://shop.3dtotal.com/training/training-ebooks-3dsmax/swordmaster-low-poly-game-character-3dsmax.html 
XD

No I dont hate that smile This model is designed to be low poly, and likely designed and created for gaming use, such models just cant have the highly detailed geometry, games just cant support it. Daz characters are designed and created for high resolution renders/art/animations. strong Painted on details for muscles and collar bones etc simply is overkill, especially when all those details are made from the geometry/morphs.

My opinion on that is (FROM MY EXPERIENCES)  quite a lot of Poser and D|S renders I’ve seen - thankfully not in this thread - seem to be very washed out and make heavy, heavy use of ambient lights that totally destroy any shadows in the scene, so subtle geometry shadowing like those areas are lost.  If they’re painted on, then the folks can go wild with those ambient lights they seem to love.

Ah yes, and one other thing I see a ton which has become a huge peeve of mine (Epecially when it happens to me XD) is the “Floating Objects”  where a can or cardboard box or a chair would be on a flat stone floor but there’s no shadowing to show that it’s sitting there. Something that in Cinema going into the render settings and enabling Ambient Occlusion fixes 97.5% of the time, but I’ve still had some renders come out with floating/pasted objects ><  Usually when using Vray =)  I don’t understand the 20 something knobs and dials Vray has to enable AO and their online manual is terribly confusing when compared to Cinema’s simple yet thorough one.


Like this:  Vray.  Awesome picture, but nothing I did (That I could comprehend) could get it to not look like it was just pasted there in Photoshop or something =P
Well was one of my first renders so go figure ^^

Urgh!  What a busy day!!! big surprise big surprise

Went out, got a haircut, had fried chicken for lunch, hit Guitar Center for cables and to talk to the repair guy about replacing a pickup on my Strat, then Wa-Mart for underwear and pay on my credit card, home, swapped the memory on the tablet to max it out at 4GB of RAM, swapped the memory on this i5 box to max it at 8GB, wired my guitar effects pedal into the drum machine, wired the drum machine into the multitrack recorder, tested the connections up to the drum machine outs,  took a nap. confused confused

I’m going to go out tonight for DEAD FISH ON A PLATE, then over to listen to some kick-butt live music and suck down a few beers!!! shock shock

Miso soup, tempura veggies, dumplings, and maybe a spider roll!!! cheese cheese

Tomorrow - test the multitrack connection, do some recording, hang out and MAYBE relax a bit, cool smile

I’m going to end up getting an i7 for my main machine, this box will become my writing machine, the tablet stays as my portable device.  The Dell D610 and Asus laptops will both get sold when the i7 arrives, along with my Android tablet.  In Juine, I’ll replace the Lenovo tablet with a Fujitsu Lifebook i3-based Tablet PC and that should be the end of my computer lust.

Just need to save up for one more guitar, too..heh.. red face red face red face
