We are bringing a USB key of information for Farsthary that he is not able to download in Cuba due to expensive and slow internet.
If people could please share information on relevant topics that would be great.
Some ideas from the other thread:
“A thing he also deeply appreciated when a friend of mine went to Cuba 6 months ago is to bring DVD filled with CG resources (I will post you a link with free papers in 7 hours, so you can look for papers related to his current issues and download many of them); he also told me a week ago that he wishes he had this book (adviced by Broken).”
“@Cambo: yeah, he told me one month ago that he was really interested in investigating parallal computation and gpgpu stuffs: I think it comes from all the numerous CG papers he reads, where the authors often propose gpu-versions of their algorithms with exciting speed-boosts.”
"Another idea: I sent him 3 months ago a dvd with Modo and 3dcoat trials (he was really interested in looking them, about UI, possibilities…), however it arrived only a week ago and the software keys had expired, so perhaps you can download the keys anew? (this requires a registration).
Another unrelated things: he likes Hans Zimmer’s movie soundtracks (whose listening eases his programming), so if you find a cheap compilation
He also fond of CG trailers, so you can download as much as you can! (Blizzard, Final Fantasy, Blur, etc…)
Finally, you can also put on the dvd the last blender sources if you’re familiar with subversion (trunk, 2.5, etch-a-ton, etc…), dvd filled with cool open source apps related to his field. (then I send him patches to keep him updated with the last commits)
Here is the link to look for CG papers: http://citeseer.ist.psu.edu/
Here are keywords that interest him: dataset, fast kd-tree (or BVH or SAH trees), micropolygons, BRDF, fast global illumination… or wait for programmer’s advices here…"
I tried posting this as me (Wife of Blendiac) however it’s being held for moderation again… I only seem to be able to do one post a day and the rest disappear never to be seen again!!!
