Soon....If only Cliff would stop asking Jim for music enhancements:D

Jim Sachs 04-03-2009 06:03 PM

They are not ready for a preview yet.

cjmaddy 04-04-2009 02:51 AM

The perfect "enhancement" already exists, = press the M key! :p ... And I've researched, provided, and tested, the solution, = change the file type. :)

..... Yes by all means get on with the Clams. :TU: ..... (After all. Who needs Muzak? ;))

Jim, How are the clams coming along?

Jim Sachs 04-07-2009 07:14 PM

Still having trouble making them look real.

Mikey242 04-08-2009 02:09 AM

I'm glad you have such high standards with your work Jim, always pays off in the end.

streetwolf 04-08-2009 11:20 AM

How about coming up with a little video of the clams in action?

Perhaps we can offer our opinions.

rctneil 04-08-2009 12:14 PM

yeh, sounds a great idea!

Ralph 04-08-2009 05:00 PM

Sadly, there is nothing more disgusting to look at than a half done clam. In days of old it was necessary to de gauss ones monitor after looking at such an image...:)

Jim Sachs 04-08-2009 05:13 PM

Yes, there's nothing worse than a half-baked clam.

Anyway, there's no use spending a day creating a video of something that's not finished, when I could just spend the time finishing it. If I could hit on just the right textures, they could be done in an hour.

MadBob 04-09-2009 11:43 AM

checks back in one hour ... hmm

Surferminn 04-09-2009 12:18 PM

sniff! sniff! ... is that chowder I smell... ;)

Ralph 04-09-2009 06:13 PM

Nope... it is the smoke of burning textures

Jim Sachs 04-10-2009 02:21 AM

Yep, 10,000 rejected textures make quite a fire in the trashcan.

Overlord 04-10-2009 02:29 AM

If you eliminate all the textures that don't work, eventually you find the one that will. We patiently await your success. And it will happen!

Jim Sachs 04-10-2009 02:46 AM

Of the three clams, I have one texture whcich I would consider a C+, one C, and one D-. Day after day I try experiments, and it starts to look pretty good to me. Then I'll go away for a while, and when I come back, it looks ridiculously cartoonish.

Ralph 04-10-2009 07:56 AM

Perhaps... time to put it to the testers. :) As Confucius probable said at one time or another.."A cook is never satisfied with his clams"

feldon34 04-10-2009 08:29 AM

Well I could take a look at the texture and twiddle with it. But I know you'd never use it. ;)

cjmaddy 04-10-2009 08:47 AM

Apparently it's the 1/4 cup white wine that makes the difference....

Jav400 04-10-2009 09:29 AM

I don't know, maybe Jim has the sequence wrong and is having the wine before the clams....................... ;)
