osh Bodinet:Autostereoscopic Photography
Autostereoscopic Photography can be conceptualized as full color "holography" created using an everyday camera as the image acquisition device. That wasn't a typo; volumetric, photographic, three dimensional imagery able to be experienced sans viewing apparatus, created using a standard camera - Autostereoscopic Photography. And as such imagery can also be created using any leading computer modeling/rendering application, the "camera" in question needs not to even exist in the real world.
Joshua Bodinet is a founding member of the development team responsible for creating the software package with the working title of Auticular. Auticular empowers computer capable photographers and 3D artists of any medium to be able to generate works of Autostereoscopic Photography with relative ease. For examples of this art form, which must be seen in person to experience the holographic effect, visit the Museum Store at the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park where Josh's artwork is on display. Please email [email protected] to receive more information regarding the software application Auticular and upcoming Autostereoscopic Photography / Lenticular Imaging workshops.

Hi Folks

Well....The final meeting of 2006 is upon us (no meeting in December due to the holidays)...and we have saved the very best for last...It has always been a wish of mine to have a meeting regarding games created in LightWave and for this meeting we have Dustin Adair to talk about his video game Bad Bad Bots, a 3D puzzle game entirely created in LightWave...Some of you got to see a little bit of Bad Bad Bots during the September meeting. Dustin will give us a more in depth look at the game...
Check out some images at the website http://www.mediumedge.com/bbb/index.html

Plug in Pot Luck (thanks Jennifer Hachigian for coining the phrase)...is a plug in exchange....Zareh Gorjian has accumulated plug ins over the years. He is going to burn it on a CD or DVD and make it available to everyone at the next meeting. In return, please bring a CD, DVD ROM, or floppy with plug ins YOU have accumulated over time, give them to Zareh and he will compile on to the list and consolidate it. A next set of plug ins will be available at the following meeting.


This is also the time where I would like to thank everyone who helped with this year's meeting...

Larry Shultz, Dave Jerrard, Jerimiah Morey, Dustin Adair, Steven Burns, Josh Bodinet, Philip Staiger, Zareh Gorjian...
