Desta vez não vou falar muito em português não. Se puder se aventurar pelo idioma preferido dos seriados e enlatados americanos divirta-se 🙂
Caso contrário curta os vídeos e as fotos. Foram feitos em Montreal durante minha estadia por lá para conhecer de perto o projeto do domo deles.
This week I went to Montreal for three days to test the SAT dome first hand and get know the Dome team.
It couldn’t have been better. Louis-Philippe St-Arnault is doing a great job coordinating this part of their project. Then we have Dominic (a very nice film director) co-coordinating it, Gabriel Morin (XSI talented artist) producing 3D content and Jean Guillemette (a Blender artist and instructor from Montage Studio – who recently wrote a way too flattery post in his blog about this project) working as a Blender consultant and Blender instructor. For the occasion we had also the company and assistency of Martin “teeth” Poirer (a great Blender developer who I had the pleasure to meet before in the Blender Conference).
As a result of the tests I did some videos that I hope you like it. There is also another nice thing. In May the LGM – Library Graphic Meeting is going to happen in Montreal. Also some activities may happens in the SAT using the dome. I think it will depend if the developers/artists at LGM are interested. For example. it would be nice to have some assistance of a gimp coder to help developing a dome/fisheye gimp plugin (to input 4/5 images and have a fisheye output).

Este ano não tenho como ir para a Blender PRO 2008.
Uma das idéias este ano era resgatar um pouco a memória do ano passado, para consolidar a importância deste evento.
Na minha forma de ajudar eu gravei um depoimento de incentivo ao evento com base na minha experiência da BlenderPRO 2007.
Como ficou grande (10 minutos) não sei se eles terão como exibir lá, mas de todo modo cá está o vídeo.
This year I can’t go to the annual Blender Brazilian Conference – Blender PRO 2008.
To make it up I did this video testimony based on my experience from last year.
I’m telling how this kind of event is important, mainly because of the opportunity to meet people and get together (i.e. beer).
It is in Portuguese for obvious reasons so if you really wanna understand what I said, maybe a nice comment can motivate me to work on subtitles :p
Espero que dê tudo certo na BlenderPRO, boa sorte a todos que estão apresentando trabalhos lá.
E parabéns pra mim 🙂
Like one of my previous posts informed you, I am currently in Brazil and loving every second of it! Today I decided to share some of my other Brazilian adventures with you. A quick online research helped me come across some excellent recommendations in terms of touristic sights and places I must visit before I leave, whenever that might be. And because I like to take pertinent recommendations extremely serious, I went to Ouro Preto, one of the best preserved colonial towns here, and I enjoyed every piece of architecture I saw there. I also went to the Teatro Amazonas and Olinda. As for the beaches, my breath was taken by the Salvador Beaches and the Fernando de Noronha archipelago. If you are curious to learn more about all of these, I encourage you t book a flight to Brazil and take your time – there are plenty more to visit, see, feel, and experience here! And because you know I am a technology geek, here is a little something on mobile devices and casino gambling within the liens below.
Happy Week-ends With Mobile Games
Are you confused of how to spend your weekends? You can choose playing best online casinos games instead of opting to fly out to some place. Flying out somewhere needs you to book tickets for airfares, book hotel rooms and so on. This causes more money to be spent. If you prefer for an online casino mobile game it is as simple as a real casino game to play. You need not spend much money on them too. You can have the thrill of betting in the game and win them if you are supported by luck. Varieties of casino games like online poker, blackjack and jackpot are available. Among which blackjack is said to be a favorite game for many players. Each and every capacitance of a real casino is made available in an online casino mobile. Though luck favors your game, your skills also matters a lot. You can decide to download some top Casino Apps right onto your mobile device or tablet. They should be 100% free, in case they are coming from a trustworthy online ambling venue you already know – they are easy to install and use and they can keep you hooked for many hours, no matter where you are, as long as you have Internet access.
Taste The Excitement!
You can really experience the excitement and risk of the casino games while you get started to play. Unlike a real casino there is no noise or smoke problem while you play in online casino mobile games. If you play casino games in your house you can stay away from noise and other distractions, meanwhile you can concentrate in your game. You need not travel for a casino place and can play the games at anytime you wish which might be during your travel too. Almost every online casino games offer bonus money for a new player. Other casinos offer money after your initial deposit amount. For more details, make sure you visit this link here www.casinoformobile.org next time you feel like doing some mobile gambling for real money while traveling all the way to Brazil!
A Blender Conference não é o Rock’n Rio mas EU VOU
E o mais legal é que estou indo apresentar o trabalho que desenvolvemos em Vancouver.
Se você quiser acompanhar a minha apresentação será 25/10 9:30 da manhã.
Ainda não sei qual será o link para as transmissões das palestras, workshops e apresentações, mas no mais tardar na sexta eu posto aqui o endereço.
Quem quiser ver a programação completa pode conferir no site da Blender Fundation.
Vou tentar fazer uma cobertura do evento aqui no Blog. Se eu não conseguir atualizar diariamente, vou tentar pelo menos escrever nas semanas seguintes à conferência.
Portanto aguarde fotos, fatos e files
PS.: Esta é a terceira tentativa para achar o melhor formato de post bi-língüe. No fundo acho que sempre vai depender do conteúdo do post. Mas se estiver ficando ruim de ler, please let me know
Amsterdam rocks !
It’s funny that when i decided to travel this year, Netherlands was my first option.I though it would be easier to find a Blender related internship in its hometown.
However I changed my mind after realize a few things: they don’t speak English as a first language in Netherlands, living in Euro is way too expensive and they don’t have so many studios working with Blender over there.
In the end I come to Canada, where I got a summer intern job with Blender at UBC (Vancouver).
Go big or go home
Ironically, the job in Vancouver was the one that opened a door for me to go to Europe.
In the end of the summer we submitted a presentation proposal to the Blender Conference.
And as you can see in the incredible schedule, we are in
I will try to document the conference as much as I can.

Eu fiz alguma besteira que perdi o post. Bom estou botando no ar de novo 🙂
A apresentação acabou a pouco e foi super bacana. Tivemos um problema que eu explico depois 🙂 Mas no final acho que deu tudo certo.

What do you need to organize a workshop?
Well, last August we had one at UBC, and this is what this post is about.
The main idea was to use it as a conclusion activity to our summer tasks. It also would be a good opportunity to give something back to the community since we have received so much from them.
Mike Pan and I did a general call to Blender users of the west coast of North America (ok, Vancouver and Seattle). The meeting was intended to be a friendly talk about Blender, Blender Game Engine, and the project itself.
SCHEDULE OF EVENTS:
09:30 – 10:00 Reception
10:00 – 10:30 Discovering Blender: An Introduction to Blender
10:30 – 11:00 Blender as a visualization tool for Fisheries Center
11:00 – 12:30 Lab: Your first game
12:30 – 01:00 Lunch
01:00 – 03:00 Lab: Materials and lighting in games
03:00 – 04:30 Lab: Physics, Python and Shaders
04:30 – 05:00 Basic optimization for realtime application
05:00 – 05:30 Closing
More then twenty people showed up. If you take a look at the schedule you can see that we tried to use the whole time. However, as the most import thing is the people being together, we had a few breaks to intended socialization.
