Tasty 3D business
- HP has posted some behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the "Hands" commercials I love the way 3D has grown ubiquitous to the point where it can completely disappear into the storytelling. [Via Maria Brenny]
- Teddy is a Java-based tool that enables freeform sketching to create 3D shapes, turning simple strokes into tubes, boxes, and more.
- Conjuring visions of high school physics, a developer has made it possible to sketch and create 2D physics simulations.
- In Shinybinary, Nik Ainley combines 2D and 3D techniques to produce some lovely (and anything-but-lovely) creations.
- The NYT made excellent use of 3D animation in Flash to illustrate last week’s Manhattan plane crash. The quality and completeness of the work they could produce in less than a day’s time is pretty amazing. [Via]
- Auryn Inc. makes software that gives 3D models a painterly look (a la Monet or Van Gogh).
