More MakeHuman in mid-March

Friday March 21, 2008

Good Evening and Good Friday to all! Spring has sprung once more along with warmer weather here in the Gray Cat's neighborhood. This week we're go
ing to focus again on graphics. In a previous post I promoted the excellent open-source program MakeHuman, which creates highly detailed 3D models of people. At least one inventive Blender user has devised a method for creating clothing for use with MakeHuman figures and has written a tutorial for this multi-step process. The cool thing about this ingenious idea is that the basic method should work with 3D applications other than Blender. Hair is still an issue, but that may also be addressed in a later version of MakeHuman. Give it a try and stayed tuned for more developments.

The picture of the week was created using Anim8or.

The loops of the week are a set of synthesized chords

The PC game of the week is Sid Meier's Pirates! A combination of action and role-playing with lots of color and atmosphere.

The book of the moment is Desperate Husbands by Richard Glover.

Send your comments and feedback and I’ll read it all and respond to some of it.

Bye for now!
