It’s the Heat….

Posted on Thursday, August 20th, 2009 at 4:22 pm

With this summer heat dominating everything, I came to realize that 3D is best produced in the cool seasons.

.

It’s 98° according to Wundergrund, and I’m sitting in a work shed with a industrial size fan blowing on me, and I don’t mind it.  I have acclimated  greatly in the last couple of months, and I can deal with body heat without a problem.  It’s something I’ve known my whole life as a coastal Texan.  I can do 98° standing on my head.

.

Mind you, that’s a deep shade reading.  I’ve seen spots this summer that topped 140°F, literally oven heat.  That is about the temp of the interior of a black car parked on asphalt mall parking lot in SE Houston in August.  And I was able to take it, which sort of scares me.

.

Anyway, I have no desire to do 3D.  I’m tempted to play music along with Patty Finney’s music going on Doug’s PA.  But I have no desire to model, map, shade, or render.  It’s the acclimation.  You don’t do it when  the brain can’t effectively shed the heat.  Visualization is best done when the heat sinks are running optimally.

.

To deny the heat in Texas is folly.  While it’s under 100° here, it topped it yet again back in the Austin area that I just vacated.

Chance of rain tomorrow afternoon.
