GenX Plug-in Tutorial

Hello everyone.

Today I made a quick video to show you how easy it is to transfer generation 4 characters to Genesis using the GenX plug-in. Enjoy.

Just a video I thought was cool

I found this cool video the other day over at Luxology.com. Just a video of some goofy characters mixed with a level of realism that I would like to be able to consistently achieve someday.

You might find it amusing as well.


Something Old, Yet New

Posted by takoyakida on July 15, 2011 at 10:46 AM Comments comments (0)

Today, I add a new photography section to my website.

I do this partially out of disgust for all my failed attempts at creating a marketable 3D model and wanting to do something different for a change, partially due to all my study of the software called Reality and LuxRender, which utilize photographical technology, and partially due to how boring my current job is.

The camera used is a basic point and shoot Sony Cybershot. I don't recall the specific model offhand, but it works fairly well in nicely lit conditions, and with a tripod, works fine in the middle of the night.

Once upon a time, out of boredeom, I would drive around town in the middle of the night. Sometimes with my camera. Sometimes all the way to the next county. In the course of these wanderings I amassed a small collection of pictures.

Lately, I have been thinking about buying a digital SLR to maybe take my photography to the next level. It would be quite an interesting job to be a travel magazine photographer, for example. I would love to travel the world and get paid for it.

Check out my new gallery here, if you like. I will more than likely be adding some new photos here and there. I hope they are well-received.
