All that said and done though for bang for buck you can't beat an overclocked core 2 e2160, £40 for a chip that is extremely overclockable it's a bargain.

I may rethink that when Phenom actually hits the market and we can play with it...

Last page of the paper, there's a roughness (i.e. bump) map... The various parts of the model are controlled via texture maps, i.e. there is a diffuse map, and then a reflection map and transmittance map for each layer to define the amount of reflection/transmittance, so this isn't an SSS procedural...

I'd settle for being able to find my list of what the nk materials in the current library are, I can remember some of the basic elements from school chemistry, but not all of them...

I know the old user manual with them is lurking in a zip file somewhere on my HD..... :oops:

Having switched from 3ds max I find blenders booleans pretty good (how they ship such an expensive program with such rubbish bools I don't know)

But I'll have a play with this script too, thanks for the heads up.

ok, 3ds is a very old format and some modellers forget it's limitations. 3ds does not have the material image file embedded like you can with some other apps, so generally you'll get a zip file with the .3ds and some jpgs, but (it's a big but!) 3ds only supports the old dos file names in 8.3 format....

It's really a lot of fun to play on the Wii, but the actual hardware is pretty weak. I'm not arguing with you there! hope I didn't imply that I thought the hard ware was powerful. It's a classic thing though - the best hardware (the PS3) is the worst seller, Sony messed up big style with price and ...
