Some Cycles nodes for neon.

Some Cycles nodes for a neat blue neon material with a few notes scribbled on. I used RGB curves node to control intensity over the surface from inside to outside, but a color ramp node with grayscale can likely do the same thing. That intensity falloff thing helps the glass part catch any glints and develop a few highlights from the neon itself. Hard to explain, other than messing around with settings and seeing how it works. I think it looks nice for what it is.

Some Blender stuff of all things

I haven't updated this blog in a while. But may as well post something useful this time around. So now for a video on how to make a wheel roll along a path in Blender regardless of what direction the path is going...

A song about.... NO.

I also do audio stuff on occasion. This one is kind of pointless, but what the heck.

Oh and here's some of my other crap so you can feel even better about your musical talent (if you have any)...

The greeble monster makes no sense

Does anyone actually read this? Probably not. I don't see much in the way of feedback, and the typical basic stats I can see don't mean terribly much either.

Ah the mysteries of wi-fi router addresses scanned while bored.

I might post some satirical thing here in the future. Fun with home alchemy or something of that sort. Not that anyone would attempt such things if I made up a process of random things to mix together. Even the neigborhood trash douchbaggias wouldn't slip upon the advice of a random stranger. Herp-a-derp. That's it for the meantime.

A Camera is Watching You

I figure somebody at the park may chance upon this and read this after noticing the SSID from my wifi. Anyhow, take a look at the light posts on the streets around the park. At least one has a camera on the top of it. No, it's not the typical "bubble" cam or one of those blue light specials like you see in the seedier neighborhoods. But none the less, there's a camera up there. When you get a chance, wave "hi" to it. Go ahead and do it. It'll be funny!

Somebody mad?

I don't know who's mad, but somebody felt inclined to egg my car. Even though it's 10 years old with scratches, it still must be too nice compared to theirs.

Maybe they heard I found work on the internet or something. I've been out of work for so long, why shouldn't I get some opportunities every now and then?

Don't worry though, you'll get yours in due time...

But on the business of work, I'm back to getting a 3D model done. Put in 4hrs last night, and will get more done today. Now that I'm keeping track of time on these things, they take longer than I thought. Seems most of the time goes into prep and then making decisions about where to place the edge loops or whether to commit to a smooth operation. Crazy, but whatever. It's all good.

Sound in Flash Player Broken?

Anyone know when or which update broke how event sounds play in Flash? I have some old stuff that used to work just fine, and now the sounds don't play correctly or not at all. I figure it had to be in one of the recent Adobe 10.x Flash player updates. This bug has to affect a lot of pages that have UIs or games made in older versions of the Flash authoring tool.

Surely I can't be the only person to notice this.
