Calendar of Events - February 1989

Saturday, February 11, 1989 - 1:00 PM - The General Meeting will be held in Jenning's Hall in Room J-2 on the campus of State Technical Institute of Memphis. To be discussed at the meeting is the initiation of Theme Meetings where a certain topic is the focus of the General Meeting. After the conclusion of the General Meeting, the first of a series of SIG meetings will take place. Todd Rooks will lead the New Users SIG for which he will be the chairperson. These SIG meetings should help spur interest and increase membership in the Special Interest Groups.

IF YOU MISSED THE JANUARY MEETING, HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED

By Charles Williams

Officers for 1989 were elected at the January meeting of the Memphis Amiga Group. Your new officers are: President Broadus Weatherall, Vice President Todd Rooks, Secretary/Treasurer Charles Williams, Librarian Bill Bowers, and MAGazine Editors John and Sean Kiss.

Don Lockard wound up his tenure as Graphics SIG chairman with the long- awaited graphics contest. The top three of twenty-three entries were selected by members at the meeting. Shane Russell (Thunderkitty) took second and third places with "Bear Woman" and "BattleMaster2", respectively. Ed Bilson's still life image "Contest" won first place. Shane will receive certificates of recognition for his work and Ed will get a year's extension of his MAG membership. Everyone who entered received copies of all entries on disk. Raytrace images were popular with the voters as they took first and third places in the contest.

Byte-By-Byte sent the club a one hour instructional video cassette on their latest product, Sculpt-Animate 4D. The first half hour presented some very impressive still images and animations. Then we watched as they demonstrated ways of building objects with 4D. The second half of the video, to be viewed at an upcoming meeting, will involve making animations with 40. Thanks to Ed Bilson for bringing his VCR so that we could all see the video tape. Contact the new librarian, Bill Bowers, if you want to check out this video tape for personal viewing.

Welcome to the four new members who signed up at the Jan. meeting: Sharon Porter, Lonnie Clay, Robert Helm and Joe Norman. Also, welcome back to two old members: Norman Wade and Eugene Harvey.

SCULPT ANIMATE 4D

Review by X\Editor/ED

Well lets get the big question out of the way first, is Sculpt Animate 4D worth $499.95 ($195.00 if you update)? To me personally it is, for someone else whose interests lay in different directions probably not. About this time your saying to yourself there he goes with that philosophical BS trying to justify spending all that money. So let me try and answer it in another way. If you already have S A 3D and you enjoy using it than 4D will increase your enjoyment. The added features and ease with which they can be used make 4D a lot more fun.

At this point in my review I had planed to give a comparison of running times showing how much faster 4D is. However as you can see in the comparison below 3D ran faster than 4D. I've called Byte by Byte about this and they told se that 4D is faster. I ran the test over again using a friends computer thinking the problem might be the 68010 chip I'm running in my 1000. Same results. I will continue to investigate this discrepancy and report on the results in a future article.

SCENE
one sphere
one light source
image size full

RESULTS
MODE 3D 4D
wireframe 1.05s .71s
sketch 2.99s 7.62s
painting 3.12s 8.16s
scanline/p 13.82s
scanline/s 7m 36.19s
snapshot 8s 33.16s llm 9.31s
photo 9m 20.77s 15m 50.34s

In defence of the added tine 4D takes to render let me say the image produced with 4D is far superior.

BYTE by BYTE improved the program by adding features and making changes that would allow the user to be able to build scenes with a lot sore ease and save time to boot.

The file requester is the first hint of the vast improvement in 4D. Your presented with three boxes one lists your drives, the next your current drive and directory and the last the contents of that directory. By simply clicking on the drive, directory, or file your request is done. Another improvement over 3D is the modify faces requester. 3D, color, texture, and smoothing requester were all separate and even after the change was made you than had to modify the faces with the do modify requester. With 4D you bring up the modify faces requester sake your changes click onset and the changes are made. Metal is a new texture that was added. As near as I can tell it gives you a surface somewhere between shiny and mirrored. Here is where BYTE by BYTE could really have gotten my attention by adding surface sapping. Oh well maybe in a future update.

Two new rendering modes have also been added they are called scanline snapshot and scanline painting. Both are faster than there respective names sake and yield very nice results.

Have you ever tried to draw a screw thread or a coiled spring. I don't know how BYTE by BYTE could have made it any easier then they've made it. I use with a $3000.00 cad package at work called CADKEY and the best it can do is draw a helix line.

For those how like to use script file they've expanded the list of commands to include animation and the new tools. If it can be done from the key board theirs a script command to equal it. Macro's have also been added so you can now assign with a script file any command or group of commands to almost any key. You also can now assign any command to a key with the hot key option by simply pressing the ALT key and the desired alphabetic key immediately after the command was executed. What's the difference. between macros and hot keys? Macros remain part of the program and are not lost when exiting. Fonts is another of the new options available. Activate the font requester and type away, the first character is loaded into the current window at the position of the cursor, and the cursor will be advanced to the right by the size of the character. The character will be sized to match the current window and all characters there after until you leave font and then reactivate.

Make tri-view big will enlarge and layer the tri-view windows, making it easier to build your objects. Make tri-small reverses the process. Snap to and keyboard controlled cursor placement help in accurately placing the cursor. When using the snap option you can snap to the center or centroid of an object. This is real handy when you what to expand or contract that object.

Working on a scene with many objects in then will try your patience waiting for the screen to refresh. 4D to the rescue with HIDE SELECTED VERTICES. With this request your able to temporarily remove the objects your not working with. This not only speeds up screen refreshing but it sakes it easier to see the object you are currently working on.

What makes a good program even better? A well written manual, cause if you can't understand how to use the program what good is it. Example 'DWB RENDER'. BYTE by BYTE dose not have to take a back seat to anybody in the manual writing department. GOOD JOB!

Part of the package I wish I could take advantage of is the 68020/30 program disk. It sure would be nice to have a 2500 and be able to render those scenes in minutes instead of hours.

I have found one bug in 4d and informed BYTE by BYTE about it. If you try use a background in photo mode, the image produced will be all garbled were the background should be.

All in all, I have enjoyed using 4D. Oh, by the way, if your interested have Sculpt-Animate 3D for sale.

THANKS AUTHORS

From X\Editor/ED

I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you who submitted articles, reviews, and columns. Without you there wouldn't have been a MAGazine. I would also like to compliment you on the content and subject matter of your articles. I've read a tot of other user groups newsletters and generally speaking I think our newsletter had more useful information. However know is not the time to rest on our laurels we've got new editors and they are going to need all the support we can give. If you get a new game how about taking a little time away from it to write quick review. If you need help with something or maybe you've got an item to sett or whatever get it in the MAG.

THANKS AGAIN!!!!

TREASURER'S REPORT

By Charles Williams

A more thorough treasurer's report will have to wait until 1 can obtain all of the financial records from the 1988 club officers. The most recent bank statement that I was able to get shows a balance of $613.77 on November 21, 1988. To that I can add the transactions from the December meeting where I took in a total of $323. Dues accounted for $140 and the remaining $183 came from the sale of blank disks and club disks.

I reimbursed Ed Bilson $25 in cash for postage for the newsletter. The remaining $298 was used to open a savings account for the Memphis Amiga Group in Wilson, Arkansas. Living 50 miles from Memphis made it necessary to transfer the banking to a more convenient location for the new treasurer (me). As soon as it can be arranged, the remaining club funds will be transferred to this savings account.

On January 18, 1989 I ordered 400 blank disks for the club. These are the disks that we sell as blank disks at the meetings and use to put the club "disk of the month" on. The disks were $3.16 and I also ordered 400 labels for $12. Shipping and handling came to $11, bringing the total cost to just under $.85 per disk.

I also spent $12 on a cash box and a couple of receipt books to help make transactions at the meetings a little easier to do and keep track of.
