Blue Thunder Poster 1 Poster-Size Blue Thunder Image
A customer asked us to make a new version of the "Someone hung a nickname on it: Blue Thunder" image, which would be printed as a poster. It turned out that the customer was requesting a size of 70x50cm and a resolution of 200 dots per centimeter. This resulted in an image size of 14,000 x 10,000 pixels... which is one of the largest images our team has ever made!

We were concerned that Poser Pro 2012 wouldn't be able to render an image that large, but there were no problems at all. Sure, it took a few hours to render and then a minute or so to export it from Poser, but that's it.

Blue Thunder 1 Upgraded Blue Thunder Model
A customer asked us to upgrade the existing Blue Thunder model so she could use it in a fan film project.
This involved making numerous adjustments to the existing model, which was originally created in 2004. The front cannon section was added to the geometry (rather than a separate prop), the rear tail section was completely remade add a rear blade was added, the upper blades can be flexed up and down, the headlights can cast ambient light, the model was remapped, and new texture maps at 2048x2048 were created.

Hospital Interior Renderings
Created renderings of a hospital interior and long-term facility for a medical equipment supplier. The renderings were used to show how their equipment would be used in various locations throughout a facility, including: the nurses' station, emergency care ward, and the examination rooms. The client supplied us with CAD files, which we converted to obj format, cleaned up, imported into Poser Pro, and then rendered the images.

The final hospital model included a patient ward, a nurses' station, a reception area, an emergency entrance and ward, doctors' exam rooms, and a pharmacy. After all the equipment models were put in place, the model came to over 850,000 polygons. The long term facility model included patient rooms, doctors' exam rooms, and a reception area. This model came to over 750,000 polygons.

The "doctors' exam rooms" were created with parts from the Medical Examination Room, the waiting areas were created with parts from the The Reception Room Set, and some medical equipment was created with parts from the The Operating Theatre.

Clinical Room 1Clinical Room 2Clinical Room 3 Animal Assisted Therapy Clinic Prototype
Helped develop an interactive model of a prototype animal therapy clinical facility as part of a student project at Adventist University of Health Sciences. The students were instructed to build a model of a clinic and the group I worked with chose to create a digital model.
The model has over 410,000 polygons and is divided into separate rooms: an office, a reception area, a bathroom, a reading room, a kitchen. Each room includes details such as: a desk with a computer and papers, chairs, kitchen sink and refrigerator, storage shelves with dog food, books and bins on shelves, and a boy (and therapist) interacting with a dog.

Vanishing Point is proud to announce a partnership with Digimation (link opens in new window).
Digimation's award-winning 3D software and models are used daily by professional artists around the world in the production of cinematic effects, broadcast commercials, video games, architectural visualization, and simulations.
Digimation has been using highly accurate CMM (Coordinate Measuring Machines) hardware and software to scan and digitize full sized vehicles. This allows us to produce the most accurate 3D models in the world and yields results which are even preferable to CAD data because of their efficient and optimized nature.
More than 90% of the cars and trucks have been digitized by hand from the actual vehicle. Each of these models took weeks to complete and The Archive contains over a thousand of them.
These vehicles have had starring and supporting roles in numerous feature films, game titles, and commercials. Digitized vehicles provide a high level of detail and unmatched model accuracy, critical when a CG model must stand in for a real world vehicle, or any time absolute accuracy is important.
Some of our clients and projects include:
7-11, ABC, Air Force One (movie), Apollo 13 (movie), Batman Returns (movie), Coca Cola, DreamWorks, ESPN, Fox, GMC, Herman Miller, Honda, Jaguar, Microsoft Flight Simulator, Independence Day (movie), Motorola, NBC, Nickelodeon, Nike, Nissan, Rhythm & Hues, The Santa Claus (movie), Seattle Supersonics, The Sharper Image, Starship Troopers (movie), Star Trek: Insurrection (movie), Star Trek: The Next Generation (video game) Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (TV series), Star Trek: Voyager (TV series), Titanic (movie), X-Files (TV series), X-Men (movie)

It is the vision of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum, Inc. to:
* Preserve the physical legacy and experience of American railroading, and to interpret and present its history to the widest possible audience.

SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) is a scientific area whose goal is to detect intelligent life outside Earth. One approach, known as radio SETI, uses radio telescopes to listen for narrow-bandwidth radio signals from space. Such signals are not known to occur naturally, so a detection would provide evidence of extraterrestrial technology.
Radio telescope signals consist primarily of noise (from celestial sources and the receiver's electronics) and man-made signals such as TV stations, radar, and satellites. Modern radio SETI projects analyze the data digitally. More computing power enables searches to cover greater frequency ranges with more sensitivity. Radio SETI, therefore, has an insatiable appetite for computing power.
