    Default Footwear Challenge... Display or ad... All Apps!

    Hi all... I was doing this challenge in the Wings3D thread, and thought, oh my goodness, why not just open this up... There are so many talented people here, of which many use different apps... so by all means, let's just have some fun... Heck, bring in the 2D artists as well... just prove your work... and show what you can do!

    The Challenge : Footwear... Display, or ad... All Apps

    gidgit why not post this in challenge forum. That is not a Xara specific forum.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    To be honest here, when I look through the challenge forum, I see mostly all 2d work ... This challenge we have presented, is all about 3D... modeling, texturing, scene creation, lighting... rendering ... it was to explore those aspects... for the benefits of the 3D crowd to learn and grow together, like the 3D community is here @ TG, and for the 2D crowd to gain, as well, share their tricks on grafx presentation, as well as visual perspective through creation with 2D... Didn't wish to leave any out,but yeah, this was intended to be a 3D challenge... cheers

    Damn... I always liked the look and feel of Modo, just the thing always crashed... think it was around 501... I wonder about that, because perhaps it was just the machine... AI not clicking in quick enough? I remember getting this I5 machine about 8 years ago, and it was rocky for the first bit, fast but rocky... Mixcraft , our prefered music daw, as well others, particularly music maker, used to crash all the time, now the machine is rock solid... both apps, in fact all apps now work flawlessly... I remember when you started with Modo... I was so intrigued... but the damn thing kept crashing lol... perhaps it is time to revisit this Modo app. So, I suppose the question here is... Is modo stable Mike? Was it just the machine, or did you experience crashes as well, and then they fixed stuff and made it right?

    @ gidgit
    I never had any problems with Modo crashing although with a bit of fumbling around I can crash just about any program. I started using Modo at ver 103. The shoe I posted is from a training exersize for an old version of Modo.

    Ha ha re crashing most any app... perhaps that might have played into things here as well lol... I visited the Modo site today... wow, quite the chunk of change... think I might have to enroll into a mature student school for a bit lol, just to get a free student licence

    Kidding, but yup, the thought did occur... just don't think we would do well in a millenial classroom haha....

    Terrific model Mike... now do a fresh one... man I am in deep with talents here... lol... wouldn't have it any other way! Cheers!

    That may be so but a guy named James used to do the challenges using Blender. Much if the time he would even animate them. I tell you this because the challenge forum is open to all not just 2D Just specify you would prefer 3D that way if someone wanted to do some footwear in 2D they could.

    lol...it was/is, simply a 3D challenge, in the 3D forum... with an open invite Oh my! Working our forum to better attract visitors for all concerns... 3D and 2D as well... uv mapping, presentations etc. Pipeline stuff! You have a challenge? Post it! UV mapping for somebody's model... perfect!

    Mike's shoe was awesome, the discussion of modo was kinda funny... lol... this be the 3D forum. I am looking forward to many entries, and the study of various apps and approaches used... just cool stuff... right here! Cheers
