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.

Thanks to software developed by Jasper Brekelmans

Arbaro Trees


I discovered a program that generates trees and lets you export them in various formats.

Seat


I’m building a cockpit for a movie project I’m working on at the moment. Today I finished the seat (at least most of it). I have to add the seatbelts.

Smartbird

Cool animation (simple but efficient) about the making of Smartbird, the first remote-controlled robot bird.
