Flash on the beach Papervision3D demo: Earth, moon and a lunar module
Man, FOTB conference has been a HUGE massive success and the sessions have just been explosive. I just got back from Erik Natzke’s inspiration session and I have to say, I regret all the times I could have seen him speak and didn’t. It was incredible – to say I was inspired would be a tragic understatement. His work was just beautiful and putting that together with sound just reminded me of how much i’d ignored the other love in my love (music) with my flash work. Oh, and I nearly got run over by people rushing the stage for prints after his talk was over.
The papervision session on Monday was a really cool session for me. The people that came were very kind in their reactions to the demo’s and the room was actually filled (which was a surprise to me, but very cool indeed!). I covered the CS3 Component in pretty good detail as well as did a collada from the ground up demo that I’ve done a few times now.
I ended it off with a demo I created with PV3D 2.0 on the flight over from Houston. It’s using bumpmap and phong shading on the earth and moon with a little 1969 lunar module orbiting the moon preparing to land. It was alot of fun to put together and after we finally got the lights turned down in the room, people could actually see it up on screen 🙂
Anyway, a BIG huge thank you to everyone who made it to the session – you guys were awesome and it made the trip very much worth the time and effort!
