new member

I all, i'm a new member and i would like to introduce myself a little bit.
I'm a french professional photographer, i begun 25 years ago in french museum Le louvre in teledetection and scientific photography ( infrared, UV, Photogrammetry ... ).
In 93 i was in Bosnia covering the war for differents newspaper during 3 years.
I'm also a photography teacher in University, and my speciality now in 360 Virtual tours.
I like to explore new technologies, ans especially astro-photography.
Feel free to visit my site
and your comments are highly appreciates.

See you in Las Vegas

Some personal information about the conference in Las Vegas. I have been there more than twenty times (on business, I don't gamble), and have even stayed in the Tropicana (pre-renovation). I wonder if they still number the floors 1-12 then 24 and up, to make the upper floors seem higher, and of course to avoid unlucky 13?

I just booked my hotel room. Easy to do on-line, just be aware that their calendars show Monday as the first day of the week, not Sunday.

Particles – 3dsMax and Lumion/Unity

Particle Flow is a versatile, powerful particle system for Autodesk’s 3ds Max. It employs an event-driven model, using a special dialog called Particle View, allowing you to combine individual operators that describe particle properties such as shape, speed, direction, and rotation over a period of time into groups called events. Each operator provides a set of parameters, many of which you can animate to change particle behaviour during the event. As the event transpires, Particle Flow continually evaluates each operator in the list and updates the particle system accordingly.

To achieve more substantial changes in particle properties and behaviour, you can create a flow. The flow sends particles from event to event using tests, which let you wire events together in series. A test can check, for example, whether a particle has passed a certain age, how fast it’s moving, or whether it has collided with a deflector. Particles that pass the test move on to the next event, while those that don’t meet the test criteria remain in the current event, possibly to undergo other tests. The simple example pictured above details a pFlow dialogue determining the birth of particles linked to a target geometry. The particles can subsequently be baked (using pFlow Baker) into an animation timeline for simple output via .fbx, allowing import into external systems such as Unity or Lumion.

The clip above illustrates the pFlow system imported into Lumion with the addition of a scene created in CityEngine.
