Welcome to The Oort Cloud...

This site is a showcase for my interests in 3D Modeling, and 3D Animation. I started my 3D learning process using OpenFX, which is in my opinion the easiest free (Open Source) Animation software available today.

I use Wings3D for 3D modeling, since Wings3D is extremely powerful and easy to model with. Wings3D is also free (Open Source). You can create Geometric (Mechanical, Architectural, etc.) models as well as Organic (Character, Plant, etc.) models. Wings3D uses subdivision surface modeling to create things. This is the type of modeling Bay Raitt used to create Gollum in Lord of the Rings. Bay Raitt used Mirai, which is one of the modeling programs that Wings3D was inspired by. Google for images with the search phrase "wings3d" and you can see some examples of what can be done with this amazing software.

You can render with YafRay using the built-in YafRay plug-in to produce Photorealistic images. You can get good Refractive (Glass) and Reflective (Metal) Caustics, Absorption, Dispersion, Subsurface Scattering (SSS), and Global Illumination. Wings3D files and Material Palettes are available on my Wings3D page.

Thanks for visiting The Oort Cloud...
