Early Arrival


Inspired by the beautiful Scandinavian landscapes I build this image.

Using the same technique as the F16, I imported the model from Flight Simulator into Blender via 3ds Max to Vue.

I love the mix of vue with “traditional” 3d modeling. I didn’t do the modeling of the aircraft (I thank iFly for borrowing their beautiful model) so I have to come back one day to this image and replace the aircraft with one of my own. For what it’s worth.. I modelled the approach lights

Import oh la di ye


I found out it is possible to import models from FSX into 3ds Max via Blender and then export to obj so you can import it into Vue. Are you still following me? It is not so hard but also not easy. Especially textures is hard work. I Thank Aerosoft for their beautiful F16 model.

Summer Shore


I was flying along the coast of the ‘Lac Léman’ in the vicinity of Yvoire last week and was inspired to make this.

Iray motionblur

Iray with motion blur; a new feature in 3ds Max 2013.. nice 🙂

Finished Kitchen


My kitchen is finally ready. I think they did a good job; the kitchen looks actually like the design.

Animatics


First render of my animatics. It will help me to previsualize my script and make a storyboard and shotlist.

Kitchen


We are building a new kitchen. for clarity I put together this image. I never did much useful stuff with my 3d passion.. it felt good 🙂

DirectX Ripper


I stumbled upon a program called 3d Ripper Dx. You can rip 3d scenes and objects from a game or program using DirectX. Isn’t it really cool that this is possible? I use 3ds Max 2012 64bit and thats not supported right now (up to 2011 32bit). You can rib as .obj and import this. I ripped a plane from Flight Sim but if I import the .obj into Max the object is skewed. But there must be a workable solution. I will look into it in the future when I find use for it.

Kinect Motion Capture


I bought a Kinect to start expirimenting with motion capture. Within an hour I connected, installed and made my first animation with motion capture!! I have to learn a lot but it looks promising.
