curiosity

Curiosity
I always wished I had better math teachers in HS, we had some good teachers but semesters that I had bad teacher would mess everything up and once you get good teacher again it's so much harder to catch up. Now I'm more and more interested in deeper understanding of math and trigonometry. I've stumble on some interesting expression and it had all sort of math. I try to recreate it using mayas math nodes instead using expression but i also really wanted to know how exactly this math gives me result that i want. So for past few days I've been reading and writing alot on math and I've learned alot of things that make alot of sense in 3d and and rigging. Just to give and example what kind of things i've covered so far, are mostly vectors, unit vector, dot product, cross product, length, parallel , perpendicular vectors.
Also been working on my rigging tools, adding more options (making it more awesome.)

-Newer stop being curios.

Ah I have a blog

Haven't posted almost in 4 month, maybe it's a good thing, since I was busy working. Was a rigger on awesome spots for Pop Secret first one is already on nathanlove.com

Also actually my computer wasn't working for about 3 month. Before I figure out I had to RMA my CPU once, RMA motherboard twice and finally RMA power-supply and yeah all this shipping back and forth and testing on their side and on mine side took around that time. So finaly It's back.(it was power-supply, although it had enough power to spin fans and light up small lights)

For now I will try to get some of my own rigging tools re written and written. Also it was great to work with Frank learned a lot from him and his rigs.

Happy Holidays!!!!! EVERYONE

Just been finalizing shots, at this point I want to be more or less done with animation so I can move on to lighting, rendering, composting, sound.

How is it going

ah how crazy I haven't posted since new year. Been very busy, learning dynamics, and writing bunch of MEL scripts.

Currently working on this cool project 30 sec animation made using only MEL script.
Also working on group project around 2 min animation to the music.

and of course there is Senior project Short animation where I have about 30 days left. Right now I'm finalizing animation, than i need to fix few technical glitchs, finalise lighting finish texturing and start rendering them frames.

More to come.
