Maintain a Professional Image

By Shyra Smith

It's important as a professional to maintain a professional image. Not only in the way we look but also in the way we conduct business. If you are to meet with clients, be sure to dress appropriately as you are representing your company as well. Making a good first impression is important and you only get one chance to do this.

When scheduling a meeting with the potential client, be on time. It's OK to show up at least 15 minutes early as well. You know that your time is valuable, but so is theirs and it's important to respect that potential client's time.

Be sure to put your cell phone on silent or vibrate and put it away as your potential client deserves to have all of your attention during the time they have set aside to meet with you. Also, remember to not chew gum as you're meeting with the client. There's nothing more disturbing than to have someone smacking on gum while discussing business.

If you have any personal issues going on, don't bring them to the meeting with you! Whatever issues are going on at home, leave them there. There's no need to discuss your personal issues with your potential client or even mention that they need to excuse your behavior because of something going on elsewhere. Remember, it's none of their business and doesn't concern them in any way. They agreed to meet with you to discuss business, not personal issues.

Lastly, if your place of business is not appropriate to meet with clients, choose to treat them to lunch or coffee. Of course, if you are on a tight budget, a coffee meeting would work best for you!

The 7 Proven 3D Animation Download Software Suites

By Pavlov Sylvain

Start with a non-exhaustive list of 3D animation software suite.

1 Google SketchUp is a free, easy-to-learn 3D-modeling program with a few simple tools to let you create 3D models of houses, sheds, decks, home additions, woodworking projects, and even space ships. You can add details, textures, and glass to your models, and design with dimensional accuracy. You can place your finished models in Google Earth, share them with others by posting them to the 3D Warehouse, or print hard copies. Google SketchUp is a great way to discover if 3D modeling is right for you..

3 - CINEMA 4D provides all you need to create high-end 3D pictures and animations. CINEMA 4D consists of different modules according to your design needs. There are 8 different ones in total although each has to be purchased separately in addition to the main package. It should be noted from the start that CINEMA 4D is a highly technical and professional package that isn't suitable for those new to 3D animation or modeling. It's designed for professionals in film making, TV, advertising, science, architecture and other fields that require professional results.

4 - Effect3D Studio gives you the power to create stunning 3D text objects simply by typing in your text. 3D text objects can be created using any font type installed on your system, giving you the ability to support any foreign language character set. We also provide you the ability to add up to 24 photo-realistic and non-photo realistic rendering style effects to your animations.

5 - 3D Max Design provide powerful, integrated 3D modeling, animation, rendering, and compositing to help artists and designers to quickly ramp-up production. This software will offer differentiated experiences and specialized set of tools for game developers, visual effects artists and graphic designers, on the one hand, and architects, designers, engineers and visualization specialists on another.

6 - Maya software offers artists a workflow from end to end creative with comprehensive tools for 3D animation, modeling, simulation, visual effects, rendering, matchmoving and compositing on a platform highly scalable production. the new Maya 2011 offers a user interface revitalized, strengthening interaction harbor view, new capabilities section 3D, integrated color management, and improved character animation.

7- And my last and favorite, Blender, an open-source alternative for 3D content creation available for all major operating systems under the GNU General Public License. Blender's features include advanced simulation tools such as rigid, realistic body, fluid, cloth and softbody dynamics, modifier-based modeling tools, powerful character animation tools, a node-based material and compositing system and Python for embedded scripting.

3D Visualizations - How Can You Tell Them From Photographs?

By Lucky Balaraman

For the purposes of this explanation, we categorize 3D visualizations into two types: interior visualizations and exterior visualizations.

~~ Recognizing an Interior Visualization ~~

Any three of the following criteria prove that an image of the interior of a building is a 3D visualization and NOT a photograph:

Lighting not consistent: objects next to each other are illuminated to different degrees
Shadows of objects are entirely missing (!)
Furniture legs cast no shadow on the floor near their feet
Objects (especially people) do not have depth
People have zombie-like expressions
People are all dressed very neatly
People are the same height and no one is overweight (!!)
Plants are identical to the last leaf
Objects are not scaled consistently: some pieces of furniture look out of proportion to others. Some of the people look out of proportion to one another and out of proportion to the ceiling height or furniture (use this to judge people/'/s heights: door openings are usually seven feet high)

~~ Recognizing an Exterior Visualization ~~

Any three of the following criteria prove that an image of the exterior of a building is a 3D visualization and NOT a photograph:

Trees and plants are repetitive
Lawns look like plastic turf... no loose leaves, no color or texture variation, no bald spots
Objects next to each other are illuminated to different degrees (as in the case of interior renderings)
People have zombie-like expressions and lack visual depth
People are all dressed very neatly
People are the same height and no one is overweight (!!)
There are not enough people in the scene (populating the scene greatly increases the time a computer takes to create the visualization)
Objects (especially people) are out of proportion (use this to judge people/'/s heights: door openings are usually seven feet high)
Trees in the foreground cast no shadows
People cast no shadows
Shadows of objects are cast in different directions or to in different proportions to their parent objects
There are no blemishes on road asphalt or on sidewalks
There are no loose leaves on the ground near trees
The interiors of buildings are not visible through any windows (if the image is a close-up)
Window panes appear painted

If you use the above criteria, you will never again mistake a computer-generated 3D visualization for a photograph!

Comparing 3D Technologies

By Al Kaatib

3D visualization has always been of interest to researchers, developers, users, and vendors. Researchers work on developing 3D rendering algorithms and techniques for faster, realistic rendering with minimum resource requirements. Developers work on these techniques to give users awesome and absorbing experience. Hardware vendors support the 3D growth by contributing in better graphics card and graphics consoles. 3D visualization is seeing explosive growth because of online gaming industry, gaming consoles like X-Box and PlayStations, and entertainment industry, in particularly the movies like Jurassic Park, Gozilla, and many more.

Let us look what are the competing 3D software technologies. In this article, we will compare OpenGL from Silicon Graphics, DirectX from Microsoft, and Java 3D from Sun Microsystems.

Following parameters can be used in comparing 3D technologies:

Driver Support
Ease of Programming

Now, let us see how above mentioned technologies fit into these parameters:

Only DirectX provides both graphics and audio functionality. Java 3D and OpenGL provide graphics functionality only
OpenGL follows procedural C. DirectX and Java3D follow object-oriented approach using C++ and Java respectively.
DirectX has best driver support. Driver support for OpenGL and Java3D is poor.
While OpenGL and Java3D are platform independent, DirectX is only for Windows platform
DirectX has best performance (10/10) followed by OpenGL (7.5/10) and Java3D (3/10)
OpenGL is most easy to learn (10/10) followed by Java3D (9/10) and DirectX (2/10)

And there are reasons in support of above statements. For example, DirectX has best performance because it directly access Hardware Abstraction Layer (HLA) in Windows Architecture. Interested readers can Google Internet to find them.


The higher the building the lower the morals.
Noel Coward

The interior of the house personifies the private world; the exterior of it is part of the outside world.
Stephen Gardiner

The loftier the building, the deeper must the foundation be laid.
Thomas Kempis

The Romans were not inventors of the supporting arch, but its extended use in vaults and intersecting barrel shapes and domes is theirs.
Harry Seidler

The work of art shows people new directions and thinks of the future. The house thinks of the present.
Adolf Loos

Those who look for the laws of Nature as a support for their new works collaborate with the creator.
Antonio Gaudi

To me, a building - if it's beautiful - is the love of one man, he's made it out of his love for space, materials, things like that.
Martha Graham
