Sorry I havent uploaded it yet… I will try and do it later.

So did you do the 3D animation as well as the music?

Yes, I did both. I had given up 3D animation when I started doing voice synthesis using TextAssist. That was all the challenge I needed at the time. (That’s why I do this stuff you know, to keep my old fart brain challenged). Then, after I’d done about a dozen or more songs, I re-enstalled it to do the Love for Sale. At the time I was fantasizing about doing a Pow Backslash CD and the animation would be it’s “music video”. By the time the animation was finished I realized that few are interested in “Techno Art”. Unless, of course, it’s done by someone they’ve already heard of. But, the fantasy got the job done. Without it, who knows, maybe I’d never finished it. Now, thanks to Vocaloid, any one can do voice synthesis. :D Maybe now, someone else will make something similar.

I would like to see the animation but under no circumstance will I ever download real player again. The spam with that program is unbearable and wmp works 10 times as good. But I give you a 9 rating anyways POW
Here it is 9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999

Hey gray, better hold those 9’s ’til you down the hi-res version when Joe makes it available. It’s a 640×480 divx avi. That don’t require anything but a codec. And, of course, 25 MEG disk space :)

As to real media, you’re right about there being other things that are better. However, that was the only codec that I was able to scrunch a 6.5 GIG file down to 2.5 MEG that could be streamed from this site.

I am in 100% agreement…… I also hate Real Player with a passion. I actually feel that the standard of compression for both audio and video is way above average but the software is very intrusive….. I feel that quicktime has the same faults.

I will try and sort out the divx version today.

I used 3D Studio for the animation and Poser for the figures. When I think how much I’ve spent on programs I hardly use anymore I’m convinced I must be looney. <img class=” /> Actually, it was more like an addiction. I built my first computer in 1977 and within a couple of years I had lost interest in it as such. Ever since then I’ve been obsessed with trying to find things to do with it. I even wrote some screenplays with it. (I’ve never had any interest shown in them. Mizz Backslash sez they are much to lurid :roll: ). Who knows what’s next. :D

I dabble in 3D stuff….. I used to do it a lot when I needed a break from music. Its the kind of thing that can consume so many hours without you realising!

Oh yes, TIME :!: That’s why I uninstalled 3DS. I kept getting hungup in there and too much time would pass.
