  1. Best work at home computer rig?

    I'd be tempted to wait for http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gulftown_(microprocessor) if there is no immediate rush for a new system.
  2. CmiVFX down again...

  3. CmiVFX down again...

    Hard to look a gift horse in the mouth. Our company recently bought all this material... and as I sit here watching it I'm reminded again of why I hate streaming video. This thing seems to back up every so often and repeat about 3 seconds worth of what I just watched. I tolerate because I didn't purchase. But I must insist yet again, that I will not purchase this material myself until I can have a physical download.
  4. If for no one else, I'll find this useful since it's a lot easier to search odforce than the sesi forums. The original discussion that this one stemmed from Marks Importer-Exporter SESI HDK docs: odforce HDK forum: A thread about the current WIN compiler situation (and why some of us avoid WINdOzE): A little HDK wiki goodness:
  5. I'm not a developer :*( I have no idea how to compile If there's anything I can do to help out though let me know. Or if you can point me in the direction of where to get started. I'm not sure where the link was to your site where this is all stored.
  6. Sorry, just finally got a chance to look at this again... I'm not sure how to make use of the exporter. If I import some particles from maya, and then export them immediately it gets rid of everything except for the position mass and age... I guess I was kind of hoping that whatever it imports it could also export.
  7. Revamped Website

    Heyo, I'm not available for work just at the moment, but in preparation for later in 2010 when my current contract ends I've just finished revamping my website. Feel free to check it out and let me know what you think! Edit: Ew... turns out that my design really is not co-operating with Internet Explorer. I'll have to try and fix that over the weekend, but in the meantime, I'd recommend using a different browser. Cheers!
  8. Revamped Website

    Wheeee! The things you miss out on when you only do html work ever other year. Just picked up a bunch of xhtml/css. The site is now working in the latest versions of Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer.
  9. New tutorials

    Sweet, I've always wanted to know the right way to do wrong.
  10. Demo Reels...

    Depends where and when you apply and for what role. If you're concerned about the quality of your reel the only thing you can do is try to improve it. Do projects at home in your spare time if you must. In the meantime, send out your applications and hope for the best. Better to send something out there and hear nothing back than to not send anything at all.
  11. My bad, didn't catch the part about Khash
  12. Not to take the wind out of your sales, didn't VHUG have a get together this month? And another one for: Tuesday, 02 February 2010 19:00 - 21:00 Library Square Pub, 300 West Georgia Street, Vancouver BC (Downtown)
  13. stills in a demo reel

    Why not package a small throw-away portfolio with your reel rather than including it in the video? They can flip through it at their own pace.
  14. That's exactly why I would be a fan of downloads. Then I could watch these during my 45 minute commute on the public transit.
  15. How much money do you guys figure you've lost due to not selling downloadable content? Add this to the stack of your lessons that I would have bought if not for your VOD.
  16. Business & Personal Webhosting Packages.

    couldn't possibly be!
  17. Alternately click here to visit it directly.

  19. For Windows 7 users...

    Same here... I actually suggested to my wife that she should get me Win 7 for xmas.
  20. For Windows 7 users...

    watching that while listening to Dragonforce is EPIC
  21. What theme do you use for coding?

    I smell a new Houdini theme coming on...
  22. Best song describing houdini?

    Megadeth -> Back in the Day
  23. I'll have to investigate further when I get the chance... I don't know what I could be doing wrong that the particles weren't importing properly into Maya if they were working for other people.
  24. I'll pay individual fluid videotutorials

    to me... boring theory would be "several years ago when fluid simulations were new it took x days to do this kind of a simulation. In those days ram was $x per MB... and you had to use a trackball mouse. Trackball mice were particularly difficult due to dust build up, but we were able to keep them clean through the use of those wet naps that you could get from your local restaurant... of course in those days, snow removal wasn't as good so you'd have to walk uphill through a snow bank to get to the restaurant, but as we all know there was enough time to kill while waiting for the fluid sim that this wasn't an issue..."
