Interim Presentation

Here were are. 3 weeks to go.

This is the website thus far.

Also did my rough draft. It's pretty rough.

I've been writing.

I did eventually get multiple tags to work, so we're in the clear on that, hopefully. One thing I notice on it though, is they look shakier in this one. I'll post everything later so you can see it and try it out. I managed to embed the AR .swf in my website, and it's pretty cool.

Here is my to do list. Currently I'm trying to get done all I can before presentations on Thursday, hopefully will have something that resembles a rough draft of the written portion by then.

- finish writing
- complete hi-poly animations
- figure out embed streaming video in flash (as in, from youtube). I found how to do it on vimeo, but all my videos are on youtube, so I'd rather do it that way.
- make mobile
- make Obama

var blue skies = new clown

I have good news and bad news. Actually, there isn't really any bad news other than it took me too long to come to this discovery.


We have animation in a papervision file!!!!! Check it out!


I have to re-do all of the models I posted weeks ago because md2 files (forget those damn colladas!) need to be low-poly.


It forces me to learn low-poly modelling!


Really Papervision, you didn't think it would be courteous to warn that my models were too hi-poly and therein lied the problem. Really. And it didn't occur to you, Blender, that you shouldn't have an animation option on your Collada exporter when in actuality, it does nothing of the sort. Really. And Autdoesk FBX Converter UI, you thought it would be "fun" to string me along, converting all these exports with no errors when all this time you've been in cahoots with Blender and Papervision, ruining the entire fun of my summer by making me lose sleep at night, tune-out my fiance, and neglect the floor which hadn't been vaccuumed in almost 2 weeks?! I mean REALLY, there were crumbs everywhere.

We have animation in a papervision file!!!!! Check it out!
I was able to create the above animation in a single morning.


I can't think of anymore!

I can still save the models and animations I did as examples of half-decent models.
It works!!!!!
And did I mention we have animation in a papervision file?!?!?!?! Did you check it out yet?

mmmm successs....

Here is what I've done this week (aside from trying to figure out the collada shiz).

It's a work in progress, but there's the general idea.
