Just arrived in Vegas for MAX

22 Oct06

Really looking forward to this event. The event itself will be huge (3000+ attendees) but seriously - The Venetian Hotel is insanely big. In just a few months time they’ll have more than 7500 rooms and every room is a suite? The room I got is the size of a nice studio apartment with two beds, big bath, two TVs and a lounge area with both a sofa area, a round table area and a desk with fax and whatever is needed… Definetly the biggest hotel room I’ve ever stayed in so this starts out nicely. Now all I have to do is find David :)

3D in Flash

09 Oct06

Now we’re getting somewhere! Check out this demo of a 3D Rhino, exported from 3DS Max and rendered complete with textures in Flash. This demo was made by Carlos Ulloa Matesanz (Make sure you check out his spiffy 3D portfolio as well) using a 3D engine he’s been working on for some time. You may have seen this engine in real life already at the Robbie Williams site RudeBox. It’s been heavily optimized since then and Carlos also just announced that this engine will be Open Source, so I really look forward to test it!
