Marble Temple WIP
This is a model of the so-called "marble-temple" in Bangkok/Thailand. Initially, the model was created for an article about hard-surface modeling for the german dcc-magazine "digital prodruction". I finally found some time to model some fore- and background elements. I'm planning to refine the lighting a bit and then render a short sequence of this scene for my reel within the next weeks.

Coming soon!
Well - propably not so soon. But at least, I finally managed to start working on a new short-movie during my spare time. Even though I'm trying to keep it simple with only a single character and one background, I still have a looong way to go. Here are some testrenders of the set. More to be revealed within the coming months...

mmListMelScripts.mel
This script comes in handy, when you need to manage a large amount of scripts, spread over multiple folders:

The script generates a list of all mel-scripts in those folders, with options to execute, source or edit the scripts, using an external editor, such as WordPad.
A search function is included as well, for better overview over a large number of scripts.
