I've got hold of a big shiny metal ball (from a garden centre) and have been playing at creating my own panoramic HDRI's

From this:



To this:

To this:



Below are 3 different exposures of a room, that when passed though special algorithms can produce the larger image, which is meant to be more evenly exposed revealing the dark room and the bright outside despite there drastic difference in real brightness.

The blurriness is because I took this without a tripod, It's just a quick 5 minute test.

Trying to do things, softwate just does'nt want me to do
i keep getting stuck and thinking of new things, but they end up not being possible either
frustrating !

best solution so far involves throwing aroun $10000 at it and capturing a team of programming monkeys to make specialized tools

well right now I\'m trying to explore the arena of Math Art, Particle/Fluid/Smoke/Firey lorenz attractors/4D fractals/Paramtetric Math Knots
but uhm, applications are not being helpfull

Cinema has a bug, well It's just bad by design, in that it can't handle lots of seperate objects
i can have a 180,000 polygon object on screen easily, but I can only get around 2000 1 polygon objects before it dies
CInema also does'nt render alpha masks properly, they are not pre-multiplied/straight alpha'd properly
its subtle but problematic

zbrush cannot paint in the luminance channel making it really boring
and useless for creating objects like a piece of glowing burnt wood ambers

after effects plugins like lux and others get 3D input in the form of lights, but after effects can only handle a few thousands before looking sad
and realflow (which I\'m stuck to version 3 as I can't get 4 without paying huge sums of money) is horrible to use

and I think only 4 does what I need anywhooo
so I thought instead of trying to do something interesting id just copy everyone else and make vector style art from tracing photos and make it loook all retro

thats popular still right? or... isometric pixel art?

oh oh I know!!! make a bunch of squiggles with Trapcode 3D Stroke, and like.. make em move around and glow and stuff!

on with the creationisms, fun to be had! (within serious program limitations of course)
