Just curious, what does the "OD" in ODForce stand for?

Recommended Posts

Odforce is an obsolete word referring to magic, legerdemain, and such. Also described as a spritual healing power.

 

When Marc and myself were thinking up names for the site, we looked up as many synonyms for magic (as to be related to the Houdini theme) and picked the one nobody had ever heard of :)

For the ignorant, science does often looks like magic. :)

Of course we're all ignorant about everything at different levels and as Clarke's 3rd law says, a sufficiently advanced technology will look like magic for the less technologically advanced.

For example, Houdini still looks magical to me :D

I am aware of this quote ;) I had a feeling someone was going to bring it up :P

I guess it is fair to say you can create some magical things using Houdini </cheese>

I always thought it was an abbreviation of "odd" and as a force / league of extraordinary artists with powers to create CG like no other. Sort of like underground superheroes of 3D.
