more fun with blender

Found a nice Tree Maker by Blender Dungeon. Took some playing with (and a couple of crashes) to get something nice out of it, but I think I might have started to get the hang of it (started to, because I stopped once I got something I could run with). Next trick--exporting the tree without the script... and without losing the textures. ((the leaves, specifically)). Though I think I did fairly darn well for all that. Also learned some things about textures and bezier curves and the like, since last render. The whole "sleep on it" effect. And I've got more tricks (robot animation) up my sleeve, when I can get to it.

Blender rocks. All the people that support blender rock.

Anyway...

All this is brought to you by the worst case of coder's block in recent history. I've got so much I need to not even be doing, anymore--just _have done_. There's no time for doing. I need to make this an obscenely long week, and I need to stop playing around. I need to get past this block on this one project, so ... stuff can happen. There's a lot more stuff that needs to happen. I was supposed to have so much more done this weekend.

So much.

blocks suck, no matter which way they go. I'm not accustomed to programming blocks, but such is life. Hmm.

You're awake.

This means I should really get some sleep. I can almost get 4 hours if I stop what I'm doing (finally managed to get some flow, really, but hopefully I can pick that up tomorrow night...)

Thanks. :)

Quite possibly.

Well, more like a toy squirrel, as all of my dad's patterns were originally meant to be little wooden toys. I just need to figure out all the joints and such.

But...

I think I now have the tool to do an intro movie for my asteroids clone. As opposed to trying to do it all in-game.

Maybe.

Maybe.

So this script generates the polies and splines for the tree?

I must look into these goodies.

yes indeedy. Good stuff. :)

For the script to work with blender, you have to actually install python (and on windows, blender autofound python 2.3.5, but not 2.4whatever, so I stuck to the semi-obsolete 2.3 branch).
