Re: Update to phpBB 3.2.1

Much better now IMO. Feels more like a forum rather than a CSS lacking html page.

Re: Update to phpBB 3.2.1

I haven't read all the 4 pages of this thread, so if this has been mentioned already, please just file it as "+1" regarding the issue: I'm a UHD user and I welcome the bigger font but dislike the fact that the text section (i.e. the forum itself w/o the top gallery) stretches the whole display, side...

Pretty cool! :)
I like that look of hefty metal, excavators and old tanks have.

Re: Autodesk CEO and President Carl Bass steps down

Thus far Houdini has come with a free Apprentice license. You don't have to register anywhere, just download an installer from their website and select the appropriate license type when installing the program.
I don't think H16 will be any different.

Re: Houdini 16

No need for apologizing, no offense was taken. I agree somewhat with what you're saying. "somewhat" because I agree with the principle that you think it describes what's happening. That is, a ship with too many captains. Or an army with too many generals and too few soldiers - in this case, too many...

Re: Houdini 16

@Mathaeus There's was no one being persecuted (I'm assuming that's what you mean by "tortured") in that thread. I'll grant you that there were a few naysayers and still are, they're everywhere, but in general one should expect opposition, both for good and bad reasons, when trying to change minds. O...

Beasty character

Howdy y'all So I have this going on now. I'm trying Arnold and I'm loving it - great results in no time. I'm also having fun (or at least trying to) rendering the same model in Houdini's Mantra. I'll post my first result here, but for the rest regarding Mantra, you'll have to go watch this thread si...

Here's an image with hard lines and one with the UVs.
There's no secret or fancy technique involved here, just basic stuff really. And lots of patience.

Re: The Remover [image heavy]

For anyone interested I've added a few more images in the original post - shots which, I think, do a bit more justice to an area I've put a lot of work into. @mc_axe Thanks for the praising dude. I've used hard edges only where a bevel would add more polys without any value, that is inside holes and...

Re: Ray's WIPs (NUDITY)

Love the Beethoven model. All the more for the classical music buff that I am.
