Well, I've been here, I've been gone, I've been back and then gone again. and here we are again with me back! hopefully a longer stay this time! I've been into 3D for going on 12 years, starting right back in the day when 3D was considered nothing more than a new fandangled way to show off your cad designs. computers werent powerful enough to render anything worthy of putting in a movie, and my compouter had a hurcules graphics card! My first 3D model was the Enterprise 1701-D from Star Trek (composing of a few hundred polygons!) From there I moved onto much more impressive 3D with a computer upgrading giving me supervga and a 486 processor. windows was still optional back then, and 3D Studio was a dos program. I started out on my new colourful rendering experience using the application Imagine 3.0 by Impulse. released for free on a PC Format floppy disk! from there I moved to Imagine 4.0, then 3D Studio, a few years later I hit 3D Studio MAX, then I came into contact with the demo of Poser 4, and was introduced to Renderosity for the first time. Later, when poser 5 and the firefly engine came onto the scene, I purchased the application, and started rendering away! Keeping up with the latest, I upgraded to Poser 6 when it was released, and started spending all my hard earned cash on models and other products. To date I have only released 1 product, on colaboration with TamelaJ, but have on the drawing board 2 more products that I can hopefully release soon! My favourite thing about poser is most definately the Material room. I love working out and configuring up strange and complex node trees to create effects without the use of textures. second would have to be the cloth room, its easy to use, and can do more things than just cloth!
