Such an honorable thing, shamelessly stealing the idea AND exact angles from someone elses' film, instead of making up your own idea, so honorable.

1. It wasn't the same idea, just the same concept.

2. I saw no angles which duplicated mine...

3. I didn't say it was honorable, I said I was honored. To be the inspiration for Aaron's film.

effstops, I believe he was being sarcastic about being sarcastic which meant he was making a joke. Oh, and I remember seeing your stuff a while ago....I think I talked to you on TFN about it. But I've forgotten my screenname there so i guess it doesn't matter now. Hey, could you possibly make a digital double in blender for me? Would that be possible? I have a UK version of Maya and have read two books on it and still have no clue how to work with 3D apps. Could you help me out as far as Blender goes?

Sarcastic...about being sarcastic? Hmm, don't think my sarcasm meter has been calibrated to accomodate that. Heheh, woops! redface

And sure, I can try to help you out in Blender, although I'm definitely not good enough to make a digital double. My modelling skills just aren't good enough. I can also point you to a lot of good tutorials, if you want. And at the moment I don't have much time, but... we can work something out.

LOL! All this time I thought we were talking about Homesick, which (as I said) I didn't really get. Didn't even see A Glitch in Time! HAHA-- that's a bit more similar... He's even got the same clock as me! biggrin

S'okay though, Aaron. Still feel the same way.

I'm glad I decided to re-read.

Uh... I'm not a Gold User, so apparantly I can't rate. Sorry. sad

As a side note, I'm not sure I like the rating systems-- good/bad posts, force, post count. All of this information is viewable, and is what seems to drive a lot of people here.

The rating system is simply a means to recommend to read or skip a post. Force is what allows you to get a bigger avatar. Not many people care, though the onse that do... well.... shouldn't smile

It isn't the size of the aura but the color in which it manifests itself.
