update mar 12: progress made on new tunnel section.

i'm about 1/2 way through what i intend for this section of the music video:

i still have the glowing objects to build, and wanted to show the background as it currently is. the final version will also have the depth shading effect.

update feb 23: blender rendering bug, and a new 3d model begins.

i recently discovered and reported a bug in blender's composite node editor, which was incorrectly rendering images when using the scale node.

basically it was shifting the various render layers up the screen and to the right by 1 pixel. which is possibly why the other beta testers hadn't yet noticed it.

a 1 pixel shift might not sound significant. however, it meant my alpha channels, which were last rendered using dev builds from a couple of weeks ago, were 
now slightly misaligned. this was then exaggerated as i was experimenting with a glow effect, so the 1 pixel width ended up about 10-20 pixels in some areas, and became more noticeable.

i was told today the blender devs are working on fixing it, and by the time i've finished modeling the new tunnel section for the thelma music video, the rendering should be consistent again.

as for the new model, it's going to be based partly on one of the previous tunnel sections, and also include a design i first worked on about 20 years ago. so i'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

and i'll be posting screencaps and test renders as i make progress.

when it's done that should then be enough visuals to last the 7:40 mins of erik's music track which we're using for this video.

update feb 14: viking trance music promo.

here is a 35 second sample from one of erik's tracks, mixed with a clip from the thelma fractal video series.…

i'm still working on the first full length music video which will feature another of erik's excellent tracks.

and this is a link to his reverbnation archive. where we can listen online to most of his full length tracks:…

update dec 27: some of ratty's new year resolutions.

1. talk a lot less about my real life when it has no direct relationship to my work.

reason being, according to the da stats, most of my visitors are mainly here for the psy art, not to follow me as a person. and i honestly am cool with that. i've also decided i'd rather be known for my work (even if it is controversial) than because x or y etc happened to me in real life.

2. update da more frequently.

caveat being my new home hopefully having reliable internet connectivity. also seems like a few of my followers are interested in the behind the scenes tech stuff, which i do enjoy talking about and showing screen capture images of, and tech demo videos where possible.

3. spend more time being inspired by other artists on da. something i've sadly fallen behind with over the last few months.

4. spend less time procrastinating on youtube, and resume working on my indie video games project, while blender is calculating the very long psy art renders.

caveat with that being my energy levels increase, which they appear to be slowly doing, yay.

i might add more to this list over the next week or so...

Many blessing on your house

You have been a great blessing on mine

thanks very much my dear friend.

i'm due to move into my new apartment about the 12 of january 2015, as the paper work etc is taking longer than normal because of the holiday period.

to be honest, i don't mind staying a little longer in my current place, as there is light at the end of the tunnel now, figuratively speaking.

and in general i am feeling more optimistic about next year. and it's comforting to think my psy art is still having a positive effort on other people, considering i haven't been at my best these last few months.
