MS Gives Truespace out for free,, wow!... you go.. Microsoft?

Today is a big day. BIG DAY.
As you'll recall, several months ago we acquired Caligari because of their advanced 3D toolset - trueSpace (among other assets). I've always felt sketchy about other 3D freeware, so starting today trueSpace 7.6 is now available for download.....FOR FREE! And, there is a direct connection into Live Search Maps so you can create SUPER high resolution 3D models using trueSpace, then right from the environment upload the model into Live Search Maps as a collection item. Once you've created your collection, you can import your collection into your Virtual Earth application and BAM you have your own custom 3D models in your Virtual Earth application. We'll host the models right in our 3D collections cloud! This is going to be a long post - get some coffee and make it diesel.
Register and Download trueSpace 7.6 for free.

Architectural Visualisation of a Miró Rivera design

This was a piece using a Miró Rivera design. They are an incredible firm in Austin Texas that ties nature into their designs. This project was created with Austodesks 3Ds max and rendered in VRay. It took 45 hours and 20min over 12 days.

UV clean up for my models

This is not going to be fun :) I had some Fun with UV mapping dozens of Buildings for a videogame. If you look close there is a lot of detail in each model.
