The material may or may not be of interest to anybody, but, I just posted an eye making tutorial at http://www.zrrp.com/a-am/. You have to go to the Topics/Modeling/Eyeballs section and select “David Simmons”. Larry is still tweaking the site, so the project file, model file and a large thumbnail will probably be added in the next couple of days or so.
In the interest of keeping the file size down (it’s 9:34 long at about 8 meg in size Flash file) the final renders in the tutorial itself look banded (16bit), so there is a final render labeled “Rendered/Animated clip” (about 2 meg in size) that shows the finished product at a better resolution. The thumbnail will be an image taken from that animation.
The tutorial is done in real time, only the billboard at the beginning, the final render and the subtitles (there’s no sound) were edited in later.
