Version 3?

Partly in preparation for classes (okay, that is a bit of a stretch, but I will be teaching Advanced Animation using Lightwave this Spring) I have been playing with Lscript a bit. Lscript is yet another scripting language, this one for Lightwave 3D. Wouldn't it be great if they too switched to Python?

Building upon the Multi Dimensional Eye Virus series, I created this:

A rough test, not much yet. I plan to also render a normal map from this and use that in the next dimension to enable re-lighting.

But first there are syllabi to write, classes to prepare, diapers to be changed...

Happy New Year!

2008 has been kind of turbulent: moving into a new home, becoming a father, new job (that is: moving up from adjunct to assistant professor, albeit half time) and also some less pleasant things. The next year will likely be even more challenging. Though the challenges will be small compared to what president elect Obama is facing!

I wish everybody a healthy and productive 2009!

My new years resolution? To stop procrastinating in 2010!
