  • My experiments with the new Vue 6 beta continue. The software is somewhat more stable now since they’ve updated it, and I’ve manage to dig a little deeper into the features. This past week I wanted to see how it would handle a lot of imported Lightwave objects. I thought now would be a good time to update “Metropolis“, one of my favorites from 1999. The new version is now up for your review. I hope you like it!

    Regarding the noise in “Morning Mist”. There’s good news and bad news. The good news is that I think I can render a version without the noise. The bad news is that I think it would take at least a week for the render to complete. I’m going to investigate Vue’s network rendering features (which were broken until the aforementioned software update) and see if I can maybe render it faster.

    My last bit of news is for you gamers out there. I’ve partnered with a company called “Func Custom Gear” to produce some high quality gaming mousepads (or “mousing surfaces” as I believe they are called). They have a rather nifty utility which will allow you to choose the type of surface you want and then choose one of my images to print on it. You can also upload your own logo to lay over the top of my work or add your own custom text. PC Gamer just gave them an “Editors Choice” award in the current issue. Have a look here if you are interested.
