  2. to avoid shoulder/armpit/leg cracks

    Getting a good deformation is an imperfect art. Its a combination of the position of the bones, the weights set on the vertices of the model, the distribution and amount of polygons around the joint, and (sometimes) the addition of "counter" bones. By adding a sibling to a bone joint, you can use this extra bone to tweak or counter-oppose the bend caused by the main bones. Some programs will also let you alter the function of the deformation or even have different types of bones. A "Smart Bone" in Cinema4d causes bones that haven't been attached to be auto attached. This often causes problems in bones suddenly effecting more than what you expected.

    Oh hell yeah! I just found out that I am going to be an IRTS Fellow this summer. What does this mean? Well, the IRTS Fellowship is essentially an all expense paid internship in New York City. They accept only 25 of the best and brightest people in the nation for this. I'm telling you - competition was tough. I've been applying for this since last September and have had to send approximately 30 essays and go through an interview. IRTS is sort of like a communications trade organization. They select people from all areas of media communications and place them with companies in New York that fit their backgrounds. I will be placed in a commercial production company. They haven't told me which one yet though. Regardless, I'm becoming a New Yorker this summer, and will probably be one for a while. Any Gamedev New Yorker's out there? - Tom Wade Murphy
  8. The new Sprite Editor, featuring a GUI designed by yours truly, has just been released alongside the uber-awesome free and fully featured FlatRedBall game engine. Here's a screenshot. GUI is still under construction. While the engine is fully functional, we are still working non-stop on it. Keep up with the engine and download the SE and FRB.dll at http://www.flatredball.com
  9. Click here to check out my new website. (Check out the streaming flash video... made the player myself even! ;P)
  10. After a short pause to finish the bird and get it rigged, I've finally extended the intro to this animation just a little bit. Now I'm up to a minute -- two months to my festival deadline!!! *sweats* (download it from this directory... its XVid, so you'll need either videolan(.org) or the xvid codec for windows media player (www.divx.com))

    Heh... thats not a sperm :) its a microbe. Sperms aren't capsule shaped (i had this conversation with the scientists already ;P) Whats really cool, that you don't get to see in this animation, is how it "tumbles". Those flagellas wrap together and form one spiral, that pushes it forward... when it wants to turn around, or change directions, it flays all the flagella out (like it is in this animation) and tumbles around until it rights itself, then wraps all its flagella together again to move forward. :)

  13. Job hunting...

    Still looking for a permanent job. I just sent out an app at the Walker *crosses fingers* along with about 15 - 20 apps to a bunch of small production companies that I've never heard of. All my business major friends already have jobs lined up... and they tell me "You did realize you were asking for this when you decided to become an art major" meh.... Should have an interesting animation clip and poster to show by the end of the week though... ;)

    You might notice a lot of broken links on old posts. I changed domains to http://www.tomwademurphy.com Until I take the time to fix them, just change the domain manually to view them.
