Flipping normals in cinema 4D. It's easy. But when I had a 3D game object which was viewed from the ouside but was invisible to the renderer because the normals weren't on the correct side, do you think I could find a quick explanation? So if you are looking to find out how to flip normals in Cineam 4D I hope this helps:
This pic show how you can flip the normals in Cinema 4D is easy,... once you know how.
So, I made a short video because one of the biggest problems people have is finding a printer that is cheap to run. At home or in the office the problem generally with home printers is that they cost to much to use.
Because I've been in the printing industry for twenty years, I know the one thing you need to look out for when you want a cheap printer. It's not the cost of purchasing it, it's the running cost. This video shows a new type of printer which drastically brings down the running cost making these printers the lowest cost per page and the cheapest printer to own and run.
One thing I will say though, they aren't fast. If you're organised like me, it's not a problem. Where I work it's a different story. They suddenly want pages and pages of print without any warning and they are always complaining about how slow the printer is (so the are going to replace it with a machine which will cost about 150€ per month more for the same amount of print).
Anyway, if you want a printer with the lowest per page cost, this is it. It's great for the home or office just prepare for the fact that it is slow:
I don't know how many times I've heard people say "overprice piece of crap" when talking about an Apple product. If course none of those people had ever used OS X and very few of them understood the value proposition of quality=longevity, free lifetime updates, lower maintenance costs and better user experience/improved productivity. They tended to think like: 4gb is better than 2gb. Thats where the "piece of crap" comment comes form, the inference that a lower hardware specification means a less capable device. The "over priced" part really happens because you can buy cheap PC's, but cheap I mean, cheaply built with budget plastic parts. But as soon as you get a PC with a similar build quality you will see that Apple products are not at all overpriced.
The truth is that a devices quality and preformance depend on both hardware and software. Thet´s why Apple continually outperforms, because it develops both.
So I got more than a little bit of Shadenfruede to learn that the new Samsung flagship phone is more expensive than the current iPhone and does't even hold a candle to it performance-wise.
So Apple hater, is that "an overpriced piece of crap"? I think it literally has to be.
When some people look the picture below (I took at the pump this week) they might be happy. Perhaps even the majority. I'm not. I'm disgusted. I think fossil fuels should be expensive, or at the very least we should have a system in place to stop the price dropping. Why? Because people are stupid. Thinking about their own personal benefit instead of the future of the planet, which is ironically is more personally beneficial than saving a few bucks today. If that´s not stupid I don't know what is.
We need oil prices to be high. People don't care about working to reduce our reliance on fossil fuel unless it hits them in the pocket. Yes, there was even a part of me that was happy about how cheap it was, but a bigger part of me knew what this means and just thought: This. Is. Shit.
Here's hoping more companies follow #teslamotors and say "enough is enough, there is only one way forward - environmentally conscious transport" (my quote not theirs). Anything else is just soiling our own nest.
Ok, I do a bit of fitness, not as much as I should, but I try. Running wasn't really my thing but after I got into it and now I can't imagine not doing it. I would't want to compete with these guys, I don't even know if I'd complete the course! But I would love the chance to just try, I wonder if there is a ski jump slope anywhere in Spain (where I live) that I can go to. Anyway, while I'm googling ski jump slopes to run up, you can watch the action in this this video:
I love that I can see the surface of mars. But what could be better than a photo of the surface of the planets Mars? no, no a video (I can't imagine there would be too much going on in that)... I'm talking about a 360 photo I can look around the surface of mars at my leisure! #awesome!
I love a good bit of Magic, but I'm not normally partial to magic which involves animals. Especially Doves. I'm not a big fan of dove magic. Then I saw this canadian guy doing dove magic on Britain's got talent #BGT. Wow. I't got nothing to do with the Doves, it more about the slight of hand. That´s some awesome slight of hand. Go ahead check out this Canadians magic skills anyone ever seen better dove magic?
Did you have a Viewmaster? I did, great fun. Well now there are a lot of 3D experiences you can have with your iPhone like, for example I bought a Google cardboard (a cardboard virtual reality viewer for you iPhone - hint: it's shit, cardboard 2,3 or later should be much better).
So how does Viemaster compete with other VR iPhone products? Like this… (I found myself saying "that's pretty neat", so I had to share). I think Viewmaster have done a great job in preserving the old Viewmaster experience in a modern format…
If you want to introduce you kids to VR then this new Viewmaster for iPhone looks like great fun!
Ok. My son has just discovered the Rubiks cube. He's having a lot of fun with it, but is yet to learn how to solve it. I never once solved Rubiks cube, because I couldn't be bothered to stick it out. This guy solves a rubikcs cube in under 5 seconds and for years people have been able to solve Rubiks cubes faster than computer controlled robotic devices. Until now... Take a look, it's quite interesting and if all you want to do is see a rubiks cube solved by a robot in just a little over a second, luckily it's at the start of the video so it won't take long :P
That Reggae Cover of Hello by AdeleLooking for that Reggae cover of Adeles song "Hello" that people have been sharing and talking about. This is it. I´m not the biggest Reggae fan. Nor am I a fan of Adele music in general, let alone the song "Hello". Just not my cup of tea. But even I have to admit that despite Conkarah´s obvious self importance (who am I to talk, I have a website of my own name) and the significant auto tune in his shisters voice (strangely I don't have anything against that). The tune is gold and I'm happy to share it. Here is the Reggae cover of Adeles song "Hello". Oh and I must admit. I love the closeup of Conkarah's sun glasses where you can see the tripod and nothing but the beach and sea in the background.
