Well here it is guys, Todd Akita’s awesome "ICE: Design Tools" pdf from his presentation at Autodesk University!! For anyone who’s getting their feet wet using Softimage ICE you definitely want to read this. In the document, Todd masterfully explains many of the math fundamentals required to really excel at programming ICE. I read it once, then read it again and learned even more… I even did the very rare thing and printed it out!
For those of you that don’t know Todd, he’s the lead TD at Psyop, one of my all-time favorite studios in the world. Located in New York City, they consistently produce some of the most beautiful, innovated and creative spots that you’ll ever see. Constantly pushing the envelope, a trip to Psyop is always one the highlights of my New York visits. Check out their website and take a look and some of their projects, amazing!
If you didn’t know, Todd is going to be presenting again this November at Autodesk University in Las Vegas. AU is a crazy cool educational event covering all of the Autodesk products that pretty much takes over Mandalay bay and surrounding hotels! Of all the Autodesk events I have been to AU was by far the best… extremely informative, inspiring and actually a little overwhelming to be honest.
So with that, here it is, Todd’s document. Thanks Todd, you rule!!!
One more thing real quick, The Softimage International User Group meeting will be taking place Sept. 28th in Siegen Germany. Really wish I could attend that one, I could use a nice Bratwurst!! (and a beer of course)
