Thanks Kurtis. Can we see some of the new improved ClothFX?

I'm not specifically involved in the video planning, but I'll pass that request along.

Is there any difference to the glue-tool?

You know, I have to crit Newtek about the video sizes. 13 megs for a 59 second video? Are guys even trying to compress your video into friendly sizes?

So the difference is either to select one edge or two quads?

100% agree with Shade01

13mo for that, it's just a bad joke.

I think the guy that made them, he never had to work as a travelling mac in an area where broadband isn't. Modem connection, it is around 2 1/2 minutes pr mb. Gprs modem which might be the only option in some areas, it is downwards of two thirds of that bandwitdth. And 3G broadband which is effectively like 1/2 a minute pr. mb, it costs around 2$ per mb in Norway, it'll be less expensive soon but the concept of paying pr mb will probably stay ... Most of those videos could easily be or have a version at 1-2 mb a piece, still showcasing the technology well and at the same time be practically accessible around the globe.

I put the 33 mb .mov of the sticky video through sorenson squeeze, downsampling the resolution and audio to the "horrible" setting and using swf. But that now 3.3 mb file, it'll play on all and every internet kiosk or grandma machine without possibly first downloading quicktime and Itunes, with a 7 minute download, *and all the information is there*! I didn't go like WTF *! a single time viewing it. You resize it up, you can't read the text on the buttons, but you really don't need to because he states the name of the button and you can see where he picks it ...

I think someone at Newtek thinks that an impressive filesize makes up for a not so impressive feature :-)

... this video is coming close to that null-object video I saw,
it is cool to have a big feature list in lightwave and add new tools... but it can be so simple to press delete button like in other apps

A necessary tool, but should be integrated into bandglue, so you can use the same quickkey.

Noooooooo! Maybe integrate with delete so that it's context sensitive but PLEEEEASE not another option in a complex tool to check and alter every time I use it. I know many modelers want complex tools with loads of options and they may great for certain types of technical modelling but when you're modelling a head you want a chisel not a Swiss Army knife! I love these simple tools!

Actually I would think this could replace Bandglue.

Sorry don't see the complication. Select two polys, hit F3(my choice of quick key) done. Select two edges or just one edge even, hit f3 done. Don't see how that's a swiss army knife.

How good would scissors be as a tool?!? Just a thought!
