In my ramp up for the Origins Art Show, I discovered something really cool: I can make stereoscopic images in DAZ by slightly offsetting my renders.  I just bought a few sets of stereoscopic glasses to hang next to my artwork in the show.   It makes for some amazing effects, especially with images that have a ghostly element (like the spear and shield in today’s image).

I haven’t had the chance to play as much Mini Ninjas as I wanted, mainly because of school.  The reward mechanism isn’t helping me get my homework done any faster, but it does maintain a constant pressure, and the discipline is keeping my work steady.

My most recent assignment in my YouTube for Educators class was a set of educational playlist-based lessons in YouTube.  For these lessons, I made playlists with an introductory video (made by me) and a lesson plan in the description.  It’s fascinating that it never occurred to me to do this before.  I guess in my mind I always saw the playlist as something that should contain either my work or other people’s work, but never a mix of the two.  Now that I see it, I am probably going to do this more often; it’s a simple, elegant way to create video lessons.

Here are the links if you want to see them.

Cognitive Domain:  The Pentatonic Scale

Special thanks to Tobin for posting this video in Facebook last year.  That was the big motivator for this lesson plan.

Affective Domain: Game Addiction and Violence

Every gamer should have a firm understanding of game related issues.  We are all susceptible to addiction, and one of the best weapons against the addiction is the knowledge that it can happen.

Psychomotor Domain: Soldering Electrical Equipment

If you ever plan to mod your console, then I recommend reading this first.  I may do a video one day showing how to Mod a PS2 (not for piracy, but for performance).

Special Video Domain: 3D Animation Using DAZ Studio

If you are familiar with using DAZ3D for still shots, and want to know how it can be used for animation, then I recommend this playlist.  It shows you how to set presets in the Puppeteer tool.
