In this video I show you how we can send your Fusion 360 model and render it with Thea Render.

It focuses on export, material design, light+camera position, and rendering.

Enjoy!

I love the food industry and the FDA. While it is great to clearly show what is just added sugar in a product (milk has lactose sugar by nature) it would have been much better to split up the Calories.

Most people count such calories but it is very important to understand if a calorie comes from fat, protein, or a sugar type.

It is actually a great myth and misconception that a calorie is just a calorie.

It is hard when you grow up not knowing or caring. Honestly when I was younger I ate worse. I do not eat better because I need to - I am pretty slim (at least on the outside) but I started to really enjoy quality food and that lead me away from all the sins of my youth ;)

In some European countries to combat obesity they added a sugar tax and as it seems wrong it seems like a logical response.

Cultural differences and opinions can be very interesting. This is a video where a police car is being attacked and set on fire while two police men sit inside.

The conflict ends without the police shooting - a stark contrast to how police handle and are also trained to handle conflicts in the USA.

It is all a matter of how you approach a problem.

+Slawek Nezumi that's going to be an interesting race and development. On the one side you need to keep in mind that one president can only do as much the opponents allow. ACA would have been much better what Nixon already wanted in case Rep would not have hated him for doing something a Rep wanted generations ago.

I see the current circus with hopeful eyes. People start realizing that politics is not following ideology and that the great honest Tea party movement is after all more doing harm than good.

I agree with that Washington has to be changed but people also voted for that. Interestingly voters are ignorant of their own voting outcomes.

I would be really curious how trump would be as a president and not the person during a campaign.

It is really a pity that the US nothing else besides the two party system. Afd in Germany only gains because people are not happy with the two main parties.

I could see Trump as a needed catalyst for the GOP to finally grow up and get out of the ideology corner and do serious political work unlike the religion infused crusades.

Curious about what Sanders will leave in the sand for the Democrats .

The Freehand clone Gravit is shaping up really nicely. I gave my foundation class today a test run in how to create shapes by drawing them and using boolean operations.

Pretty nice workflow.

Check it out - Gravit is free.

This summer I teach a 2D foundation course again where I cover many aspects to design and art such as design elements, principles but also individual perception. I put a strong focus on the emotional value of work and how customers bond or not.

Just today I remembered how silly I found the Mass Effect 3 and specifically 2 game covers. I just ignored the game because of that.

Only a long time later did I realize how stellar specifically Mass Effect 3 is in terms of game design, story telling, and game music.

Similarly did I never really pay much attention to Fallout which became one of my most cherished roll playing game because of their strong focus on 50s SciFi technology and general Americana elements.

Kinda funny how you realize how much you scan and reject a lot based on the first look.

People are overweight because they eat junk - some say.

Well I went to Kroger, grabbed 3 apples and the was shocked when they rang up with 3.99$ each!

3 Apples = 12 $

Face Palm!


But for sure healthy eating is expensive here, grrrr....

Do I wish Google would just focus on one app and make it well. Now we will have 4 com apps on Android ...

And Google Hangouts unlike iOS / OS X iMessage still cannot send files (not just images) and you cannot share a screen and access the mouse.

Ah well ...

Yeah only makes sense through that point of view or if they eventually ditch hangouts, which I will sorely miss.
Anyway user data seems to be where all the big money is these days, so I am sure Google has it all figured out eheh

I love the art in manga and animation, but I am very happy that today Germany did not win the Eurovision Song Contest with our 18 year old actor being dressed in a manga inspired well I don't know stuff.

Maybe she was somewhat confused that manga is from Japan but she represnted Germany?!

Puhhh our sanity is saved ;)

+Marek Moravec I think she is herself actually quite into manga and it's less that others told her to be manga inspired with both the dress and finger gestures. The confused commend was sarcasm.

Maybe I as a designer think this is too much a stereotype for a different culture / country.

In the end she represented Germany not Japan.

Maybe after this year and with better OS X and stable Win support Krita can become a defacto standard for sketching replacing many other applications.

The amount of special tools it has such as transformation layer,, clone layer, drawing aids, and such beat many commercial applications easily.

Intel cuts Atom chips. Doesn't that basically mean the death of MS surface phone running desktop apps on the windows phone?

Be careful about this place and Groupon. They do not honor the fine-print on the Groupon website. I called twice to make an appointment and was told different stories about why they do not accept a Groupon deal on the weekend. If one does not want to honor deals, then do not simply offer deals. Thats borderline scam. Fortunately Groupon gave me a full refund and I will never recommend Belle Sante Spa to anybody.

I went to Blufin Sushi few times - their Sushi is so so but the Woods have no other option. If you go to a real Sushi place you will notice the difference. But taste can be subjective. What most rubs me with the place and this is why I will never eat there agin, is the arrogance and rudeness of the staff - specifically with Groupon. First time we asked if we could use it for lunch while dining in and we were told it is accepted. We ordered few things and some lunch specials. And afterwards we were lectured that lunch specials are excluded from the lunch Groupon deal. Nice. Second time I over the phone ask if I could place an order for pick up and use the lunch Groupon. I arrive mention the Groupon and rudely being lectured again that Groupon are only accepted for dine in. The person I talked to over the phone joined the conversation explaining that she thought it was ok and was quickly informed as well that she made a mistake. Instead of saying sorry for the misunderstanding and simply making an exception in this case because I informed myself via the phone before placing the order, the employe insisted on not accepting the Groupon deal. Customer service 101 fail. I simply turned around, went to Kroger and enjoyed a 1/3 cheaper Sushi which actually tasted surprisingly good for a grocery store - I am not sure if the Sushi was in the end not even better than BluFin anyway. One might think come on Kroger? Make a taste test. Some good Kroger rolls vs BluFin rolls. BluFin might look nice but flavor wise it lacks. And in the future I will rather give my money to the quite polite and friendly staff at my Kroger store than the arrogant and snoddy brat of a server at BluFin. I must say eel Sushi from Kroger is actually pretty spot on.
