Rigid Body Dynamics test

3DS Max Reactor Test Simulation from Kat Hulka on Vimeo.

This video was created using 3D Studio Max's Reactor simulator. We needed to test out our new render farm at the office, so this was the guinea pig.

my first modular function!

To share with you my nerdy(er) side, I'm starting to learn ActionScripting, and starting with AS3. I wrote my first custom modular function today and I'm super excited! Horray!

function moveShape(shapeName:MovieClip, vertMovement:Number, rotAmt:Number, alphaAmt:Number):void
shapeName.y -= vertMovement;
shapeName.rotation += rotAmt;
shapeName.alpha = alphaAmt;

moveShape(blue_mc, 120, 5, .3);
moveShape(orange_mc, -30, 12, .9);
moveShape(purple_mc, 175, 50, .5);
moveShape(yellow_mc, 30, 0, 1);

I know I still have a loooong way to go, but hey, it's a start!
