Why is it on this forum, if anyone mentions any other software people want to ‘Poop’ on it.
This not a personal attack on anyone or the community in general.
It is something I have noticed whilst reading the forums.
Example 1: The Make Human Project.
The fantastic work done by the people at Make Human, whilst mostly appreciated by the bulk of the community, was seemingly belittled by some or the use of the software was even questioned? Why? Whats wrong with a like minded group of people who have a long relationship with blender releasing standalone apps?
They are kin. Like blender, make human has a strong leadership and was formed on the same principals blender was. Parts of their work can also make our life easier.
Terragen 2 is a long awaited release for many blender users.
So what if it’s going to cost. They may yet have a ‘lite version’ I hope!
I for one will gladly buy it!:rolleyes: ( I don’t buy much:D, use oss or free always;).)
Certainly I respect the work at terragen so much I will gladly pay.
If you check some of the beta test renders…it will blow away all competition…vu…br…
Terragen has a very long association with blender and the blender community.
It has taken a team at least a couple of years solid work to bring about this release.
All the while still freely giving Terragen 0’.9 versions that we can import into blender.
Already using ‘dem’ maps if we choose.
And much greater control over terrain creation than most of the plugins blender or the blender community provides so far…
(most,if not all:p). No offence to JH & JMS & others.
Also don’t forget that Terragen 0’.9 versions also have animation plugins so you can record your flight path then use blender’s compositor to fly your models round ect.
If it isn’t open source it is evil and must be destroyed even if we know nothing about it.
I’m mainly annoyed at the lack of research some people do into the history of a program before they start “pooping” on it.
It is OK to have external app. game engines & renderers, well for me there are a lot of other great apps both open source or not.
Blender has a lot of competition out there, scriptors are much sort after in many fields by many 3d apps.
‘Vue’ has some awsome scripts (python) ‘Instant 20 trees’ is one that comes to mind.
I have downloaded Panda 3d models that come with fully rigged maya binarys.
Some of Panda’s Python Scripts are awesome.
I am not saying these softwares I have pointed out have been specifically wronged by anyone.
I am just saying, be careful.
The thing is Don’t ‘POOP’ on your neighbours lawn or the next time you run out of milk you may go thirsty.
