LOR & MIDI
Have you guys taken a look at LOR (Lots of Robots) by Andy Murdock? The lighting, ambiance, audio and particles keep you entranced. What do you think he's doing with the lighting, and what renderer do you think he's using? He has some other cool stuff at his site too, check out the right nav bar on his Gallery link.
The instructor I had when I took my first 3DS Fundamentals Class told me about LOR, and I bought the DVD when it came out. This guy is a triple threat, he cam animate, create audio and work in traditional media. Two out of three isn't bad, and I do have a Casio (which I can play) and I have some midi software/cable plugin, but I really need to do some educating to be able to produce some nice musical tracks via my computer. I still haven't figured out the midi to music transfer, so for right now I would only be able to use music I mixed in Acid pro or live recording of my keyboard using a microphone. Is anyone knowledgeable in midi play?
