SoulburnScripts Updated May 15th 2010

Max script update:

First, I've tested the scripts in Max 2011 and all seems to be good. Let me know if you find any weird behavior.

Updated 2 older scripts:

parameterManager: Fixed a bug where the wrong value got passed to relative mode. Thanks ZeBoxx for finding this one.
modifierUtilities: Added Option to unignore instanced objects. Useful if you want to add modifiers to a set of references.

Thanks to everyone for your support.

WWR Photo Site Is Updated

So recently I've been collecting the World War Robot toys from ThreeA. The toys are based on a universe of fighting robots created by artist Ashley Wood.

As well as collecting them, I've had some fun dusting off my camera and photographing the toys. Photography is something I've dabbled in over the years, but never spent much serious time doing. The toys have given me a good excuse to work on my photography skills, which isn't all that different from my cg skills, you need to work on composition, work on lighting, etc. It has a spontaneity though that's difficult to get sometimes in cg, and I've been having a blast.

Below are a few samples, and feel free to visit my flickr page for all of the photos if you find them interesting.

When I update the page with new robot photos, I'll add a note to my blog, the same as when I update my art gallery, tools page or education page.
