Amazon Medical Misson

This past summer Orlando Tech instructor Paul Read shot documentary footage with a medical boat on the Amazon River. The boat went 10 hours up river to a village that could only be reached by the river. Eleven medical staff gave help to approximately 1500 riverbank villagers over a period of several days. Many of these villagers had never seen a doctor before. Mr. Read documented the entire venture with the view of making a promotional video that could be used to further the work of these doctors. To date it has been shown on YouTube and on DVD to thousands of people in both the United States and South America. The entire Digital Video Production class at Orlando Tech participated in producing the promotional for the medical group. This next summer Mr. Read will be shooting a documentary on the life of Romanian Gypsies in western Romania.

Autodesk releases new city block creation tutorials for 3dsMax 2014

Autodesk has a great learning resource called "3ds Max Learning Channel" on Youtube.  I was excited to see a posting of twelve videos on creating city block.  The series of videos start by setting up 3dsMax2014 into customize setting for the project.  The next video instructs the viewer step-by-step starting with Photoshop to lay various layouts that are interchangeable with one another.  This allows the digital artist different combinations to work with for the city block model.  I have just skimmed over the videos and I can not wait to explore the project with my students here at Orlando Tech's Game/Simulation/Animation Programming program.  The finished project will blend itself well as a game environment.  I can hear my students' say, "Oh, Mr. Tillery, that is a lot of work!"  And will tell them that they will have the ability to work a great environment for their games, and with time, it will be a lot easier.

Description: This tutorial shows you how to build tileable city blocks that include road works, street elements and low-poly buildings to create small and large-scale cityscapes. In this series, you learn various techniques that range from simple modeling and texturing functionality to writing bits of code to help with the automation of certain tasks.

Motion Capture: Using iPad as a virtual camera

When challenged to create an inexpensive alternative to James Cameron's virtual motion capture camera, Orlando Tech 3D Animation student Ismael Perez succeed and won an iPad in the process.  Ismael worked with his instructor Alan Lynch to create a realtime virtual camera that would be wireless in the capture volume. The expensive camera James Cameron uses is tethered to the computer with a string of cables that require additional staff to operate.  Given a budget of $10, Ismael used the iPad app Splashtop to stream the desktop video onto the iPad while tracking the iPad in the capture volume using a few markers glued to coffee stirs.  Ismael also developed the pipeline for students to follow that includes importing a FBX file into Autondesk Motionbuilder complete with textures to create an interactive environment for the actor to work in.  Once the actor and cameras are calibrated in the school's Vicon motion capture system, the data is streamed into Motion builder and attached to the character and virtual camera respectively.  Once the screen view is changed to look through the virtual camera it is maximized and streamed to the iPad using the Splashtop Remote app.  Both the actor and camera data is captured and can be applied to the final project animation.  Ismael entered a video of the project featuring video instructor Jeremiah Buambach into a contest Splashtop was running and won first place taking home a t-shirt and a new iPad. Checkout the video he submitted.
