To the xStream!

Although I’ll be using 3ds Max throughout the foreseeable future, lately I’ve been flirting with Vue 6 xStream and getting a feel for what it can do. So far, I’m impressed. Even the shit I rendered whilst working through my first set of Vue tutorials could be passed off as carefully-designed desktop wallpaper:

Okay, maybe not the rocks … but each of those scenes required fewer than five minutes to set up and the rendering times were surprisingly fast. Everything’s a cinch with this new software.



  1. Dianne was my rock.

    PS: Who’s Dianne?

  3. Looking good. I’m still hanging out for the video though. Or are you waiting for me to come back to Geelong, so you can film me doing some cool parkour tricks?

  4. Robboin, you’ll be pleased to know that I have rendered a couple of video clips. Nothing too advanced, mind you. Just a couple of practice runs so that I know what I’m doing when it comes time to create the next YouTube sensation. Even with this new Quad Core system, the render times for video clips are pretty insane. One of the test clips I created last week ran for 9 seconds and took more than 18 hours to render … and it wasn’t even a complex scene!

    Perhaps it would be better if I just forgot about this CGI nonsense and concentrated on filming your parkour exploits …

  6. I won’t stop until I’ve got the entire globe covered!

    Including those areas with no electricity, internet, or human beings …
