Everywhere I go, I'm always walking. This was a quick hike along part of the Metacomet Trail in central CT. Sure beats spending Sunday watching tv. The DVR will wait, Fall is fading fast. Try and keep [more]

thanks for viewing

Kathlyn - shooting stills and video, even while I am supposed to be enjoying the outdoors and not thinking about work, actually makes it more enjoyable

Ron - I set the render mode to draft, hence the grainy picture. And by the way, Maya was not available so I rendered on my Amiga.
Rather than rendering at full res and then using Magic Bullet to make it look all grainy and oversaturated I tried to do this in-camera. Haven't yet figured out how to do a bleach bypass on an SD card but am working on this...;)
Excellent raytracing effects and the flow technology was great, too

But the character animation left me thinking that it was a little stiff and could use a little more realism in the walk cycle. Also, you might want to try one of the Maya hair and fur plug-ins on the next render pass.

But the landscape modeling was spectacular, quite realistic. ;o)
What a beautiful hike

Thanks for sharing. It reminds me of the hikes I used to go on through Alaska.
