Slow Week?

Not many updates this week as I have been called away from work to look after my Dad who fell off the roof while chasing squirrels.

Next weeks got some interesting posts coming up though – we have a series of posts on Fantasy Architecture with drawings for a Geography Class to be made into 3D Models and put into Google Earth. The drawings arrived in A3 format and we have a A3 Scanner arriving Monday.

We are also thinking of a ‘How To’ series to put together a series of tutorials on how to do the things we put on the blog. If there are any tutorials you would like see then please post a comment and we will start writing….

    I use AutoCAD and ADT to produce 3D models for construction projects. It would be great to see how to get these into Google Earth correctly lined up etc. Would be a very useful tuorial.

    Just came across this thanks to CGArchitect.com. Amazing stuff – I’ve never seen Quicktime VRs of that quality and resolution before!

    I work for an architecture firm and would love to be able to create similar VRs for some of the buildings we’ve done.

    Could you give some sort of guide as to how you make them?! What software do you use? What sort of camera? And what’s a “panoramic rig”?
