Messing in Maxwell render (not my model, It's my dads plane and pig)

Nothing fancy, no materials edited, just throw some basic lighting in and render. Which is why the pig looks like rubber not porcelain.

Finally got round to adding Alpha mask support to this thing. Hurrah

So now I can confidentially attach giant alpha masked images for no reason!



Terminal Command:
find / -name '*.icns' -exec mdimport '{' ;

Will import all Leopard icon files like the above, into spotlight, how useful!

Trying to find a way to create 512x folder icons, so far the only way that works is IconComposer, all other methods are broken/buggy

I've made a template in Photoshop with an action, that exports all the different sizes of an icon for you. As it does actually use different icons for the folder at each size to make sure it draws and reads properly at the respective sizes.

Just thought id waste even more time and hack my user account icon to have nice alpha masked background, harder than you may think:

And almost as hard is how to take a screenshot of the loginwindow

;-)



Goodies here:

/System/Library/CoreServices/loginwindow.app/loginwindow
/private/var/db/dslocal/nodes/Default/users/
/System/Library/CoreServices/SecurityAgentPlugins/loginwindow.bundle/Contents/Resources
/System/Library/CoreServices/MenuExtras/User.menu/Contents/Resources/CGSession -switchToUser ID 0

New Little Snitch is out and It's much better:

Can finally snoop on where my net is going in and out

What have I been doing... well the list is long

So many things missing I don't know where to start...

In no particular order:

New iMacs came out, then a new iPod Touch came out:


New shiny keyboards:


I got an xbox 360 and got addicted to DiRT::


I got a force feedback wheel:


I got a new modem:


I went to Valencia in Spain for 3 weeks:




I installed the latest build of Leopard

I reinstalled the latest build of leopard

I reinstalled the latest build of leopard

I stopped MESSING with leopard, so hopefully no more reinstalling

;-)



I didn't like the Leopard dock so I hacked it:


I accidentally deleted all my emails (well the last 2 months worth), but they all go thru gmail now, so I re-recieved them, and all is well.



I've changed the Leopard desktop background to several flavors that change throughout the day


I've been compiling a list of all the films I think you should see before you die, this is it so far:

And yes some of those are highly suspect, but essential none the less.

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.
