    Airbag

    The Bridgetool in L.w.8 is very cool!

    Don't you have to plan carefully when using that tool though, to keep from getting tons of triangles?

    Great textures on your objects, btw.

    I didnt see any triangles at all.

    Check out video here by Dan Ablan:
    http://www.newtek.com/products/light...uct/demos.html

    Its quite far down the list in "Modeler,
    Bridge Tool".

    In the second scen , I used a hdri-image and a pointlight inside the biggest ball.

    Yes, Its always good to have a plan.
    Sometimes its a good training to just "play around" to see and learn how the tools works, without any final "product".

    I could be mistaken, but I thought I read that you had to make sure the two things to be bridged had the same number of points on the bridging edge, or you'd get lots of triangles.

    Ah, well...my memory comes and goes these days. That's what heavy drugs'll do for you.

    Just kiddin'. Sorta...

    btw -- where did you get the hdri? A C4D'er on my "other forum" was asking about hdri sources. Plus, I like 'em, too.

    Here's a place you can get a freebie to help you make 'em, if you're into that.

    I can't wait for them to come out with their patch for 8 so I can play with the new tools.

    btw, you have to plan your textures a bit better. You can see the image pinched in the reflection at the top of the ball.

    They don't have V8 for the Mac yet?

    Zarathustra...whew, long name, where's it come from? An ancient philosopher? Interesting though...anyway, with what's in your sig, you should love The Da Vinci Code.

    I have 8, but it's worthless for modeling and experienced users such as Policarpo complain of crashes that destroy scenes.
    I'm still waiting for the patch.

    "Zarathustra" is the central focus in Nietzsche's Also Spracht Zarathustra and arguably is Friedrich himself or at least his mouthpiece. It is ironic that in this work which is his most monumental work, he takes on Christianity with a character named after one who some credit as the creator of monothesism who lived long before Plato and who's views were turned into a religion named "Zoroastrism".
    On the surface, Nietzsche seems a muddled mess of contradictions but after spending considerable time reading his works even the irony of the name "Zarathustra" makes perfect sense.

    Now go out there and read a book or something. It's good for you.

    I almost forgot - if you ever decide to try and read Nietzsche, only read a Walter Kaufman translation. Anything else is just plain incorrect.

    Not real literature, thanks. The only literature I can stomach is a bit of Mark Twain. Or James Thurber. Lightweight stuff. Why torture your brain with writers who ponder the heavy issues? Just time you think you've got things figured out, here comes a curve ball, and you gotta revise your whole belief system. Besides, humans trying to figure out the quirks of life is like trying to run Lightwave 8 on a computer with 8 megs of RAM. Better to go on a combination of logic and intuition -- and accept that the only certainty is that there IS no certainty.

    Seriously, if you ever read novels (and maybe you've already read this one), you should pick up The Da Vinci Code. One of the subplots involves a deception foisted on the world by organized religion -- and the attempt to perpetuate the deception. The idea is that organized religion is more about money and power than true spiritualism. Really interesting and thought-provoking.

    Plus, it's a dern good mystery story, too.

    Thanks for the info about your nickname.
