Portal: Origins Short Film(I should have posted this before the Lambda media weekend post when I may just but that on the shelf for a while or just straight up stop the Lambda media weekend stuff.)Portal: Origins Short Film by Orange-Box-Group
Anyway with that put to rest now let's talk about this high quality short film and I mean this is high quality like "The Gravity Gun by Corridor Digital and Portal: No Escape by Dantrachtenberg” just to name a few. Most of us and I mean everyone know about Chell, GLaDOS, Aperture Science VS Black Mesa and so on. But what about the Portal Gun itself and you think Aperture Science created it...kind of in this a short film called Portal: Origins takes place August 19th, 1668...wait WHAT!!! the 17th Century yeah a Portal film in the 17th Century and our character Scientist Piero Joplin was just like what Cave Johnson he was creating and testing. So were diving into the world of Joplin creation and there are some stuff in the video are not from 17th Century but this is a Scientist that created a lot of stuff himself
A new 'Toy' for M3D!!Hi guys!A new 'Toy' for M3D!! by mandelbulb3d
First off; let me wish you all a - slightly belated! - Happy New Year!
Now, to the point; I recently discovered - via Kronpano's :iconkronpano: excellent piece 'Sierp Hilbert Construction Site': http://fav.me/d72bcaa that it's possible to create interactive 360 degree images of M3D - and doubtless also Mandelbulber and Frag - pieces.
The process uses a facility provided by 'fieldofview.com', which is accessible through a Flickr account. I personally have never been a great one for making vids of my M3D creations, so finding this feature was like manna from heaven for me!
Basically, you'll have to have, or open a Flickr account: http://www.flickr.com/ to upload your images to. As most of you will be aware, M3D has a 360 degree view option within the Navigator; use this to create your panoramic 'base' piece.
To work best, the 'horizon' should be positioned in the exact centre of your image. This will avoid any unwanted distortion. If you are using a background image
So I've pretty much been absent from this site since about June, I think. I'll stop in every so often, but I haven't been posting much or even talking to people a lot. I want to say it's only because I've been as busy as I have, but I think it's a bit more than that. dA is not the site it used to be. It's growing more and more broken as the company ignores the large chunk of its users, or at least it seems that way to me. But I have had a lot to deal with over the last few months. I made some really nice internet friends, gotten more into writing, worked at a summer camp for a month, made writing commitments, dealt with school, gotten into the wonderful sport of airsoft, and so much more, both really good and just miserable. I also found reddit.
Now, if you don't want to read me preaching the wonders of a different website, I suggest you skip this paragraph. I've found reddit to be a great way to share my art. It's peer moderated, and posts there have the potential for an audience like you'd never get on dA. Are you sick of 90% of the users of dA, and don't want to see the sort of things they post? Just don't subscribe to those sorts of subreddits, and you should be fine.
So now it comes time for the big question. Am I going to continue making fractal art, and will I return to dA? To answer the first question, yes, but I'm going to be putting a lot more care into each of my pieces. There are works that I've been throwing a few minutes toward each week for months. So expect a drop in quantity, and a raise in quality. Now here's the big one. Am I coming back to dA? I will be returning here, but probably not in the amounts I was previously. School takes up a lot of time. A job, hoping I get one, will take a lot of time. Practice for my new airsoft team will probably take up at least a weekend a month.
As for all those feedback messages, I'll get around to them. Eventually.
See ya round. -Dae
