BALWUG, had a very successful start.
We were able to see demo reels, animations, commericals, short films, printout of models, and an eye drop animation that many of the group members had completed in the past. We were also able to get some freelancing work to those who did attend.

Most of the members use multiple animation or modeling software. Besides LW we have several people that also use Maya, Stuido Max, Poser Pro, etc. and most of the people in the group are well versed in Video Editing.

Normally we plan on weekly meetings every Wed night 7pm to 9pm.

Meetings are normally held at the same location.
7 PM at AACC in Cade Bldg Room 123.

March 26th, Wednesday at 7:00 PM.

Directions:
from Pasadena area: Take 97 or 10 north to 695.
Take 695 west towards Towson.
Exit 695 At exit 17 Security Blvd. bear right off the ramp towards woodlawn. (do not go under the freeway if you end up at Security Mall you have gone the wrong way Turn around)
Turn Left at the second light in front of Fox Chevrolet (look for giant fox) This is woodlawn/Gwynoak Ave (it changes names back and forth). You will immediately pass in front of a Nissan/Pontiac dealer and then Woodlawn high school. Continue on Woodlawn/GwynOak Ave thru several lights. You will pass a large police station on your right and a dammed stream and park on your left. In about five minutes you should pass Liberty Hts. Blvd. (also Liberty Road) this is a very built up area with a New York Fried chicken on one corner and an Amoco (I think) station on another.

Continue on Woodlawn/GwynOak Ave. (it's GwynOak at this point) and turn left on post road in front of a small faded yellow store. (this is at the point where the cement road dividers end for good).

On post go to the first stop sign and you will see my house on the right ahead of you. There is a 4' Blue Heron cut out of plywood on one of the white columns. Park anywhere nearby.

4504 Fernhill Ave. (Post and Fernhill come together in front of my house)
410-664-6020
410-371-0072 (cel)

From the North take 83 south into the city and exit at Northern Parkway Headed south and west towards Pimlico racetrack and Sinai Hospital. Take northern parkway past Reisterstown Road (exxon station/McDonalds on right)
Turn left under the Metro overpass onto Wabash Ave. (first light after Reisterstown rd) Turn right at second light on Rogers Ave (first light just goes into metro parking lot). A short ways down Rogers look for Groveland. When you see Groveland think to yourself... I have to turn left now. At that point you will be in front of Post Road a small road that only goes to your left.
Turn Left onto post road and go to the third stop sign. At the third stop sign look back over your left shoulder and you will see my house with the Heron on it. Make a left around the circle and park nearby. My house is exactly at the junction of Fernhill Ave. and Post Road.

Thanks we hope to keep it going and hopefully it will remain strong with the good LW school location near it.
BTW Nice website, maybe are group should start up a web site or something like that.

Next meeting will be held at AACC in the same location
on the original post above.
Wed. 23rd 7ish.

We are going to introduce Vue which is a landscape program created by E-on software. Which is similar to Bryce.
But Vue has a very nice mesh level control export capablitiy.
It exports nicely into LW.
E-on software also produces a software program called Ozone.
Ozone is a plugin that allows LW to generate Vue Sky’s and Atmosphere and allows Atmospheric imports from Vue.
Both are very user freindly, easy to use and great for LW.

I hope to see everyone there,

Tim

A web site is a great communications tool - You can post up what you did at meetings, tips, tricks, tutorials, local news, links, resources and more.

Its important for me since the LWUG has to cover an entire country, not just a city! (though most US cities are probably bigger then our entire country!) :)

However - Its almost a full time job keeping it updated (and I'm a slacker so it goes for months un-updated!) so if you have a user who has a tonne of spare time and likes playing with web sites, see what you can do! :)
