>>659900640x480 was my preview resolution on PC and SGI in 1998, for quadratic pixels. 1/2 NTSC or PAL for prodcast/field stuff.We never rendered final output on one machine, one script in 3D Studio, Maya or Lightwave would start up and cue the net rendering.
I had the example scene files for this frigging ugly Baby actor. It came with Character Studio for Max 2 or so when it still was a seperate plugin that cost several thousand $I hated it when it became so popular because of the Alley Mcbeal showJust kill it in every possible way
>>661903The file was called "Baby Cha-cha" and the success prompted Kinectic to make a new promo video for character studio V.2 at the time.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzWiFqB2xwU
>>661903It was available when R1 came out. Kind of a big thing.$1,495, later $999, after that freehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8azQEceSJoI still have all the boxes on my shelf.To be honest, Biped/Physique often created undesirable deformations in its first releases, so we used native 3ds bones or downright segmented the models at the joints. People hardly noticed at these tiny resolutions and clothes often covered the seams on human characters.
