Click the other boxes to move to a different part of the song, or click the arrows on the currently selected box to swap which pattern is played during that part of the song.
Vray Fur 32,767 views | 28-January-2011 | 3D Studio Max Tutorial In this 3D Studio Max Tutorial I want to introduce Vray Fur. I am not going to explain all parameters one by one. it is what you would find in Vray help documents. Here, I try to show abilities of Vray Fur with bringing some examples. I haven't discuss about lighting and rendering parameters in this tutorial as it is all related to your own scene that has been added Vray fur. To make sure that you can study these tutorials, I have provided the start scene and end scene of each tutorial.

Stress & Intonation All words of more than one syllable have what is called word stress. This means that at least one of the syllables is l-o-n-g-e-r and louder than the other syllables. In the following examples, stressed syllables are in capital letters: PHOtograph phoTOgraphy photoGRAphic PENcil comMITtee volunTEER MARyland soCIety inforMAtion MHBlenderTools: MakeWalk basic workflow MakeWalk is a Blender add-on for retargeting mocap data (.bvh files) to a given armature. Retargeting: how it works The goal of retargeting is to transfer a motion from a source armature (e.g. from a BVH file) to a given target armature (e.g. the MHX rig). However, it is not straightforward to assign the source action to the target rig, even if the bones have identical names. The motion of each bone is specified in local coordinates, relative to the parent and the bone's own rest pose.
The Infinite Drum Machine Built by Kyle McDonald, Manny Tan, Yotam Mann, and friends at Google Creative Lab. Thanks the The Philharmonia Orchestra, London for contributing some sounds to this project. The open-source code is available here. Vray grass tutorial part 2 Longer grass - some stats: approx 8000 polys per proxy x 1000 proxies = approx 8 million total polygons. 3dsmax uses about 2 gig memory for this scene and each view rendered pretty quickly considering I had vrayfog and depth of field on. Note: I use vrayscatter (a commercial plugin but well worth the money) to scatter the proxies. There are lots of tutorials for it here.
How To Design an Infographic Combining Photos and Illustrations Once she was satisfied with the base map, Zhang searched Google for reference photos of the landmark buildings. “I looked for the most recognizable and interesting angles of the buildings,” she says. “Then I thought about how to emphasize and focus on the character of the building. For example, the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum has some interesting pleated facade of stainless steel and glass.
The Best Free / Open Source Animation Software For the most part, animation is not an expensive craft to pursue but it does come with some fairly pricey overheads when you’re first getting started out. If you’re in animation school, chances are you’ve got access to all of the equipment and software you could possibly need. But if you’re interested in kitting out your home setup with animation software, the price tag can quickly rack up. Luckily, there are some free animation software alternatives which are good enough to see you through the majority of animation projects you’ll undertake. Presenting… Pencil
The Motionbuilder-friendly BVH Conversion Release of CMU's Motion Capture Database - cgspeed June 26, 2010: I've now re-released the Motionbuilder-friendly BVH conversion of the CMU motion files with some minor improvements to the frame-1 T pose. I recommend the 2010 release over the original 2008 release, however links to both data sets are available below. Please see the 2010 README file for details of the minor changes. There have been no changes to the actual CMU motion data or to the bone structure or names -- only the initial T pose, which isn't part of CMU's original dataset to begin with, has changed. March 22, 2011: all download links on this page were broken because MediaFire deleted all files without notifying me, but should be fixed now.
