Python 2.6 banner

Python 2.6 had been officially released on 01.09.2008! Some really great new features but still compatible with 2.5 code, which is great for slowly transitioning to the upcoming Python 3000.

Don’t hesitate a second and go for the download!

Ninotech Path Copy – a must have Shell extension!

I find myself constantly copying paths from one place and pasting them in another place. Be it texture source folders, render paths, script locations etc… The problem comes in a networked environment, which is a common thing nowdays, isn’t it ;) I usually map a network drive to the most common remote locations and use one of the last letters to label the drive, like X: or W:. This is all fine and it saves a lot of trouble when constantly jumping from one folder to the other on the company’s intranet.

Specialists demand special tools. This is what drove me to create these two, very specific, custom texture maps for VFX professionals. The first of the two is a custom UV texture map used for visually evaulating the level of precision and correctness of UV coordinates on 3D meshes. The other one is a custom TRACKING texture map developed for compositors for 2D tracking purposes of 3D renders or any other 3D elements that were 3D tracked and rendered.

The materials are back on-line! I’ve decided to move these downloadable materials here, so that anyone can download and use them as they like! I was quite surprised by the response I got from people around the world when I temporarily took the materials down from my business web site, duber.cz, so here they are in their original form in one, convenient, package:

finalRender Stage-1 material set 02 (requires WinRAR to unpack)

Here are the preview renders of the materials included in the package (Advanced Car Paint, Aniso Metal, Carbon Fibre, Electron, Neon, Sand, Sex Toys, Snow and newly added Gold!)
