Three attacks in two days

Yesterday a car ran over people in a busy tourist pedestrian zone in Spain. Today there was two near simultaneous stabbing attacks in both Germany and in Finland - in the city within 15 minutes' drive from where I live. All three had fatalities, critical injuries and two had multiple attackers that ...

Tutorial: How to avoid Zero Change Derives

I know that as creators you probably know this, but I made this video mainly to spread the info about it to the customers - in all fairness, it should be common knowledge because ZCDs are technically cheating.

I have no other advice than telling to them directly that their behavior may be hurting your business.

Re: Why are still avatars popular?

The real reason why Still Avatars are more popular over Animated Avatars is price. PEople don't want to pay 5k+ for an animated avatar, even tho in the end you are more likely spend just as much, if not more, in the long run, for additional poses to stand in. VisNova's avatars can cost more though,...

Avatar KBs

Sometimes when I'm in the same room with just one avatar with loads of particles and other effects on it, my fan starts getting really loud in the "whoa there, I can't even" kind of way. I just replaced the thermal paste of my GPU (with the good stuff) a few days ago after blowing all the dust off w...

Re: Why are still avatars popular?

But the still avatars are more looking like dead to me, no movements, no eyeblinking, and a death-stare to who-knows-where. I also prefer the avatars to display a wider range of emotions and awareness (reactions) to the surroundings, feeling more like human actors compared to a marionettes, automat...

Like in the case of DaddyOFive, a YouTuber with massive support from his fans for videos where he abused his children that have now been taken away from him. I don't see using down vote button as the priority in such a case, but rather the flag button. It's an issue for the staff to solve. Down vot...

Re: Why are still avatars popular?

I love the realistic animations of a breathing and blinking avatar..the ones who are "heavy breathers", (the chest goes up and down rapidly)...are the ones that freak me out...like, Um, you gonna hit me? Are you having a heart attack? Do you need a time-out? lol. And yes Zara, I agree about the gli...

Each to their own... but I mainly find it a bit strange that many avatars in the same room don't even breathe or blink.

Re: Ratings and comments in social media

These days I just let people comment - if they will comment something nasty or spam, I can just delete it but mostly the comments are OK. Actually in YouTube there's no way to deny the others from rating your videos. You can only make the vote results private so only you can see them. I actually pre...

Two products with a seashell. In the other one you can actually hear the sound of the sea.

Use 1-10 as a scale and tell us why. These are not the official forums so the criticism is allowed, and I'm curious.

Crash when making an animation only with some bones

This only happens in 3DS Max when I export certain bone movements, since I only want to affect the bones starting from the neck and right clavicle. However, when I export all of the bones in the body it doesn't crash. What causes it and how can I help it? There is such a thread in the old forums fro...

Types of intelligence

I have actually seen this around the web a lot recently - when spoken about intelligence, they nearly always bring up the IQ scores or Mensa. I just keep thinking how one sided that is. IQ measures the logical ability (which does change and can be trained to he higher), but it's not nearly all that ...

Re: Should the smoothing groups always be defined?

3Ds Max always has several smoothing groups by default, at least in the standard shapes like boxes. But yeah, you can do some complex smoothing groups there. In the first example, let's say that you'll make a kite shield with two slightly curved surfaces left and right with a sharper line in the mid...

Re: Workout!

Some scientists would seem to say that how you breathe during the exercise has a major impact on how much fat you burn. Why so? Because fat burning is a chemical reaction, and the fat simply changes form - what it's made of simply doesn't disappear. The oxygen you inhale helps to break the fat down....

Should the smoothing groups always be defined?

Even when it's a simple plane with no curves?

In my experience if there is no smoothing groups, the lighting inside IMVU client looks very strange on surfaces... or when someone brings a facelight in a room and comes close to a wall which has no smoothing groups.
