A long time ago I wrote a post about one of our resident Max guru Louis Marcoux. He had created his own website and filled it with tones of video tutorials for 3ds Max. Well now he is on the AREA. This is one set of pages any max user should bookmark.
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.
Based on nominations from the community we have put together a short list of 3ds Max and Maya artists that you can vote to have named this years Autodesk Masters.
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.
This tutorial is my answer to a question on the Area forums. How do I animate a cube moving around by flipping from face to face? In this tutorial you can see how I tackled the problem using dummy objects and the animated link constraint controller.
Are you the teacher type? If you know 3ds Max or Maya backwards and forwards and have an idea for a live class that the design and visualization community would be interested in then here is your chance...
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.
Hey everyone I'm back with a series of video tutorials and tips and tricks. This first one is a quick video I knocked off over the weekend based on a thread on the forums. the Original question was how to create windchimes with reactor.
A friend of mine at Neoscape, Nils Norgren, is putting together a new 3DS Max user group in Boston. If you have enjoyed all the tutorials Neoscape has done for the AREA and live in the Boston AREA I highly recommend you check this out. See the info below...
