Thanks for the link. That's some good info. But terrible videos, what was up with that guy with the camera?

I humbly suggest that thread titles give some kind of indication of the subject matter of the thread. ie, "Luxology video" rather than "enjoy".

Someone posted a link to this a couple of days ago on the Community forum section. For anyone who hasn't clicked on it yet, CGchannel has made a Quicktime video of the Luxology demonstration at Siggraph.

It's a wobblecam video. Obviously the camera operator only had one hand on the camera (who knows what the other hand was doing!)

If they'd used a tripod the video would have had a vastly smaller file size, rather than the 20MB that it is. Also, the stereo audio makes the file size bloat even more. CGchannel must have lots of bandwidth to spare.

We see Brad Peebler say that he is happy to be having a break from his previous involvements in "consumer" software.

I guess we should be thankful that this video is in Quicktime format (available for Windows and Mac), unlike Newtek's demonstration video which was playable on Windows computers only.
