For those of you who are unaware, and I'm sure there are more than a few, OpenSubDiv (OSD) http://graphics.pixar.com/opensubdiv/ is about to become the new subdivision standard (there really wasn't one before) in the 3D Industry. It's being pushed by three giants: Pixar, AutoDesk and Microsoft. AutoDesk owns and produceds AutoCAD, 3DStudioMax (3dsmacks), SoftImage (XSI) and Maya. In other words, it owns a huge chunk of the high end 3D application industry, the other two need no introduction from me.  So don't bother to argue with me: OpenSubDiv is about to become the standard, and any software that does not implement it will be rendered obso

What do Superman Returns, The Last few Harry Potter Movies, Twilight Eclipse and District 9 all have in common? The render engine used for all the 3D Graphics in those movies was 3Delight. Paying attention now?  3Delight is second only to Renderman in Hollywood.  Yes, Renderman is still king.  That's great.  You can get your license for the bargain basement price of... drumroll pleeze: ONLY Nineteen Ninety Nine and Ninety Nine Cents!... (that's $2,000 for those of you in Port St. Lucie http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/03/04/911-mcnuggets-call-latrea_n_171744.html ) Whereas, you can pick up a copy of 3Delight for, beware of sticker shock:

Well... I'm over on the DAZ Forums and I just found out, Damn It, that DAZ has a DA Account??? WHO KNEW???? I sure didn't.... so we have a thread going on that, but I decided to post another on WHO is on DA in the first place? http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/20394/ I mean, really... R.Com has THEIR Gallery, but we have DA, which is non-exclusive, and we get to see a whole lot of stuff we wouldn't otherwise see, and get inspiration from a whole lot of sources, and why the hell not? What I'm hoping for is to have a whole lot of people on my watch list... that's all.  Maybe get DAZ to be a tad more involved here on DA and just forget

Rest in peace my friend.  :(
So sad to lose you.  I shall miss you very much Christian and all your help you have given to the many friends on Daz forum.

Thank you.

RIP Christian.
I just found out from Wilmap over at the DAZ Studio forums that Christian (aka Wancow) passed away on 22 July. She found this out checking his Caring Bridge page, from a post by his brother in the comments. I'm providing the link to anyone interested: www.caringbridge.org/visit/chr…

He'll be sorely missed. I'll be your huckleberry! 
Happy Birthday!
All the best in this special day, Happy birthday Christian!!!!.
