Very nice. I'm extremely interested in what he was doing to interface LW with Renderman...

....are you talking about this James....

".... he used a custom Lightwave-to-RenderMan converter to render a few visually critical elements such the bouncing airbags to enhance the shading and detail."

Now this would be killer..... very interesting...

Yeah... there are some open-source renderman-compliant renderers sprouting up, as well as some decent editors out there. It seems like the pieces are all in place...

damn you can watch the online movies on the NOVA site only when you are in the us. iget a message popping up that says i cannot watch the movies when my ip location is detected outside of the US. i wonder if this also is a 9.11 thing going on, though i doubt that terrorists would plan to attack mars anyway.

just wonder what that is all about.
