hopefully more permanently- if only ISP's would
stop selling out to each other!

click link below if you're looking for Tweener's
home, and some other polyray/pov utils... DTA is
there too.

You have some pretty nifty looking utilities there.  I like the idea of your
"Snow" program.  In fact, there's some demand for a Moray 3.3 plugin that
does just that.

BTW, I love "Fireflies"!

Why thank you very much.

As to writing a plug-in; I'd really like to tackle an
animation one for Moray/POV but I'm neck deep into a
project that is taking every drop of creative juice I
have.  I'm just finishing my 7th(!) character model for
it and have one more person to craft before I can get
onto the proprs and sets... :o)

My understanding of math/animation has really improved
since I programmed most of my utils so when I'm
finished with "BPMF" I may return to polishing some and
grafting them onto MORAY with the SDK Lutz has.  Seems
Moray is a bit of a moving target, though, as a
platform, but what isn't?

Why bother?  I'm not interesting.
But, maybe "Ballet pour ma fille" will be interesting.

Yes, I think I know which project you're talking about.  I have the page
bookmarked :-)  Is your next project the incredible-looking "Ballet pour ma
fille?"  I'm interested in it :-P

BTW, where'd you get this Animation Master 2001?  Is it freeware or
commercial?  It looks pretty good.

That'd be awesome.  I like the idea behind your utilities, but can't use
most of them because they're for Polyray, for Moray DOS, or something along
those lines :-(

I'm sure plugins would really be appreciated in the community!  I know I'd
use them :-)

Here's the answer to everything you could want to know
abouot it before purchasing it: http://www.hash.com

I paid $199 for it.  Since I'm a student (and will be
forever it looks like) I got the student price from
http://www.creationengine.com.  It's the sameproduct
either way.  It's a bit of a tempermental program and
crashes frequently enough- even on a cleanly built
system with that being the first and only app installed
for awhile...  But since for "Ballet pour ma fille" I'm
finished product oriented more than process oriented
(meaning the final animation takes precedence over the
fun of programming my own utils, et. al.) AM should
work nicely.  I've found the way AM models to be a
learning experience all its own that forces me to
sketch my characters out on paper totally before I even
lay finger to mouse button.

hehe- I STILL use Moray for DOS- in fact when I won the
IRTC animation round all I wanted was v2.5 DOS not the
latest greatest version which I could have claimed...
:o)

Well, when I come back to messing around with Moray
I'll most likely go full windows version, etc., and
then see what happens from there.
