3D Gallery Premiere Opening
April 7, 2007 5:45 pm
|The Renderosity Art Community and Caligari Corporation invite
you to the Grand Opening of the New Renderosity 3D Art Gallery!
The Renderosity 3D Gallery was created using the truePlace software platform designed by Caligari. Visitors will be immersed in a realistic, beautifully lit, modern art gallery where they have experience the sensation of walking through a traditional, brick-and-mortar gallery, viewing each of the images on display while mingling with other gallery patrons. Attendees can have live, real-time text or voice chat discussions with anyone present in the gallery as they move about and enjoy the art.
In honor of this very special event, we have set-up an Exclusive Gallery Showing featuring the work of Matthieu [Matthieu Roussel], Renderosity 2006 Artist of the Year. This French, freelance illustrator's humorous, emotional and stylized work has earned him much deserved recognition and accolades. We are pleased to host a unique gallery of Matthieu's works in a 3D Art Gallery setting.
Matthieu [Matthieu Roussel], and representatives from Caligari and Renderosity will be in attendance for the Premiere Opening on Monday, April 16th from 9:00am-10:am (CST). Come and enjoy his creations in a new and interactive way.
In addition to Matthieu's work, all of the 2006 Renderosity Artists of the Month will have a select image available for viewing. These top artists include:
first you must have truePlace installed.
To install truePlace, please register here.
Once you have installed truePlace,
then you can visit the Renderosity 3D Art Gallery
We invite you to come out for the event, meet your friends and colleagues from the Renderosity community to view and discuss these works together in real-time text or voice chat!
The new Renderosity 3D Art Gallery will remain open for visitors after the gallery opening. So, if you can't make it for the opening, we still encourage you to visit the new Renderosity 3D Art Gallery*!
*Special Note: You must be a member of truePlace for the link to work, if you are not registered already, please register here. There are a few basic hardware requirements needed to enter the 3D Gallery:
1) Be sure you have the latest version of DirectX installed, version 9.0c. You can download and install it from here if you are not sure.
2) You will need a graphics card that fully supports DirectX 9.0c and PixelShader2.0. Most graphics cards released in the last 3 years meet these requirements.
3) Windows XP or Vista is required - earlier versions of Windows will not support the 3D Gallery.
4) A Pentium 3 or equivalent AMD Athlon (a Pentium4 or equivalent AMD Athlon is recommended)
5) 512 MB RAM (1 GB or more is recommended)

This is such fun! I've just been wandering around the truespace gallery and it's really good. Bit hard to get used to navigating my way around but I'm doing fine. I just had to write this while I was in the gallery just to prove that if I can do it, anyone (with the minimum requirements) can do it. I have a P4 3.0ghz processor with 512mb DDR Ram and its pretty smooth. I'm going to be having fun. Thanks Renderosity, I'm going to enjoy this. (Helen)
I tried it tonight and got nothing but malicious script errors poping up with norton av. it even locked up my xp computer. guess I will have to try and figure out what is up and try again later. also the download link for the instructions seems to be broken.
Hi Dave-so Be sure not to simply run the truePlay application and then try and connect from the 3D interface there - instead, copy and paste this link into an IE browser (or use the links on the page above) to jump straight into the space: caligari.trueplay://tpportal.caligari.com/1190 If you still get the message, then do be sure you have downloaded and installed the latest version of truePlay (the viewing application). For the Mac users, probably the thing that is handled most differently between PC and Mac is the graphics hardware, and being 3D this is very dependent on that (in the same way there are a lot less 3D applications on the Mac than PC, as it has taken people time to start porting those across). The demand for a Mac version of trueSpace has been small but growing. Looks like a real-time 3D shared space has a much bigger demand though, so truePlay might well be worth getting ported over onto the Mac. Note that for those with the latest "PC Macs" it is possible for some to get in using Windows and bootcamp and similar - not a full solution I know, and only applies to a small group. We will look into this more though, with so many requests arising here! Thanks for the feedback all!

This was a fun event. :) I had a great time walking around and viewing Matthieu Roussel's exceptional work and hearing him talk about some of his pieces. It's definitely more fun when you can converse with the artist live. I look forward to more of these in the future. :)
I would like to thank everyone for coming! Special thanks to Matthieu for being our guest of honor and sharing about his fantastic work and to Tom, Paul and Roman at Caligari for setting up the beautiful, well lit space. It certainly brightened up my day. I had a great time at the opening. It was so packed at one point that we had to take turns getting up close to view the image being discussed. (Yup, like being at a real opening ;-) I was using both text and voice and voice is a lot of fun...as long as everyone speaks or at least understands all the languages being spoken. Voice is really cool, because it really is 3d space relational. As you move around the gallery, you hear other people speaking out of the different speakers depending on where you are in relationship to them! That was VERY cool :-) The gallery is now open for everyone to go in at their leisure and enjoy the art work! Best wishes, Lillian
I also get the error message Dave-so has caligari.trueplay://tpportal.caligari.com/1190 ..& pasting that link into my browser gives me a 404 page not found..the version I have was downloaded a few days ago so I'm sure it's up to date (using winxp,radeon9600,2.8ghz,2 gig ram) I'm also getting a nortons virus warning for trueplay.exe whenever I use the trueplay interface. other than that I'm looking forward to seeing the gallery
I have seen this set up and working on 3 computers with no trouble at all. But, then I tried installing it on one of my home computers and ran into a good bit of irritation. But, it wasn't from trueSpace it was from Microsoft! Trying to install DirectX I keep getting this error. "A cabinet file necessary for installation cannot be trusted. Please verify the Cryptographic Services are enabled and the cabinet file certificate is valid." The computer that had trouble is running: Windows XP Media Center Edition, version 5.1 Windows Internet Explorer, Version: 7 Windows XP Media Center Edition* *Apparently, it's this Home Edition that has a DirectX problem. Now I'm being run around in circles between Microsoft and Dell trying to figure out the problem. If I find the solution, I'll share it for sure! Sorry to hear anyone is having trouble getting in. Hopefully, we can help you get it resolved.
