3D modelling: Then and nowMikey 12 comments
This week I have been buried in 3D Studio Max 7 and feeling a little sorry for myself for still being 2 versions behind everyone else. And then I came upon this on Digg today, a picture taken in 1975, of a dude doing pretty much the same thing I have been doing all week (3D modeling and animation - not designing gliders!) except his interface looks a little less intimidating than the one I use. I don't know what software that is but I am going to call it 3D Studio Lame.
I always think how cool it would be to go back in time and show those guys a modern 3D application running on a computer that has more processing power than a wrist watch and a screen bigger than a deck of tarot cards. How blown away would they be?
