I just ran across a guy who has created some great new plugins for 3ds max rigging. You have to check these out if you do any kind of animated rigs.
In this post I talk about how siggraph went and fusion IO technology which just blew me away. Oh and much better video quality.
At Autodesk we have been talking a lot about stereo technology and working to build it into many of our products. Well just to prove that stereo is quickly popping up everywhere you will soon be able to hold stereo web video meetings.
It seems some scientists have come up with an algorithum that can use two digital camera images, one taken with flash and one without, to extract high quality depth maps.
Would you like to see mudbox driven by multi-touch technology? Well an example now exists and its pretty cool. There is a group called Autodesk Labs within Autodesk that tests out and plays with ideas coming from all parts of the company. Whats great is that they do this playing in the public eye not behind closed doors. This means in many cases you can try out these tests and provide feedback. Their latest test is mudbox with muti-touch.
In case you hadn't noticed I've recently been leaning towards useful ways to hack our world. It started with making your own cintiq followed by making a touch screen out of a Wii and hacking your canon camera. This may be a little esoteric for many of you but I have found how to create a polarized stereo viewing system using your laptop and cellophane.
Do you have a consumer Canon camera? If so did you know that you may have in your very hands a far more powerful piece of hardware than you ever realized. All you need is the right tools to unlock the power. Features Like Raw format images,Live histograms, massive exposure control and camera scriptability are all waiting for you to turn them on.
Ever wished you could have your own interactive mulit touch digital whiteboard or how about a interactive 3d display. Well let Johnny Lee show you how to do just that with a Wii and a few cheap parts.
