Hi. Silly maya hotkey question. Does anyone remember the hotkey for hiding the maya grid? I know you can simply go into the display panel and select it, but wasn't there a shortcut key for it?
I've recently bought and finished a game called Still Life on the PC (it's also available on X-Box). I seriously recommend anyone wanting to do 3D animation to buy a copy and look at the cutscenes. The modelling in them is excellent and its very well choreographed. The game is worth it for the FMV cutscenes alone, however it is a great and challenging game anyway. My boyfriend bought the X-Box version after he saw me playing it on the PC. It doesn't quite look as good on the X-Box but its still great too look at.
Just a question...
First time posting to 3d_animation. I mostly play with CAD/CAM, but have a keen interest in computer generated animation. This week in Melbourne, Oz is the Melbourne International Animation Festival. I'm really hoping to catch one of the kids sessions with my 2 & a 1/2 y.o daughter who loves anything animated. Thought it noteworthy in this community. Only a couple of days left :( but here is the website link which might give the international community an insight to whats happening down under! MIAF
I posted this under "advice" on Monster.com, but I'm going to copy/paste it here because I need all the advice I can get:
GOt a problem with 3ds max. When i try to preview reactor animation i get a dialog box, which says Error: SetPixelFormat failed, then i click OK and MAxscript pops up saying UNknown system execpttion, click OK, and highlighted in max scriot is the line: on execute do (reactor.previewAnimation())
Wondering if someone can help me, i'm still fairly new to 3ds max, only using max 6 just now, still to get a copy of 8. For some reason, all of a sudden i cannot rotate any nee objects i create objects, i can load previous files and rotate objects but if i make any new object i cannot rotate it. I noticed in the TRack View (curve editor) that thr rotation track does not have the x, y, z co-ordinated like it should do and like the objects from files that i can rotate. Instead it just has one track..vector length.
I thought it was about time the community had a new look, so I've changed the layout. Much better I think. I have also added a few new links to the links list, following request for info on online renderfarms.
