[07:35:40] <Aria> Oh mans
[07:35:52] <Aria> This company is selling a mocap suit for 200
[07:36:29] <Aria> Using gyros, not cameras. Comes with 10 lego bricks you tape onto your skin
[07:37:18] <Aria> Pretty good price. Though probably in a few years it'll be replaced by just regular cameras without any trackers
[07:38:34] <Aria> They also sell a 200USD glove that has a tracker per joint. That one seems good too
[07:43:21] <Bronz|work> That sounds pretty cool, yeah.
[07:45:21] <Aria> Maan
[07:45:30] <Aria> I'm watching a scene from RotJ
[07:45:38] <Aria> it's so much better than Rouge One
[08:40:15] <Aria> You know the Opera scene in 3?
[08:40:30] <Aria> They had a prop seat, but only one
[08:40:42] <Aria> There's like six in the scene, one is real five CG
[08:41:07] <Aria> I assume so they could just copy paste the one real chair, but it still looks very silly behind the scenes
[08:41:20] <Aria> Cause its like a blue box with the two actors, and then just an empty chair
[08:55:49] <Bronz|work> =P
[09:02:43] -!- Apsup [Apsup!Apsup@hide-C3A41BC5.kortex.jyu.fi] has joined #geeknights
[09:04:59] <Apsup> Morning!
[09:05:04] <Aria> Hi
[09:05:27] <Aria> How is today?
[09:05:51] <Apsup> I just woke up, so it's still young.
[09:05:58] <Apsup> Should go to take a shower.
[09:06:08] <Aria> Bit later than yesterday
[09:06:15] <Apsup> Yes.
[09:06:22] <Apsup> Stayed up pretty late too, so...
[09:09:26] <Aria> Palpatine on Wookiepedia defaults to legend
[09:09:58] <Aria> (Legend is pre-disney canon, so EU stuff mostly, and also what happened in the films)
[09:10:30] <Aria> (Wookiepedia defaults to "Canon" which is Disney canon, so what happens in the films, and also the Disney films, and nothing that happened in the cartoons, books or games or whatever
[09:11:01] <Aria> It might just be google linking the wrong thing, or maybe I've been on this Wookiepedia page at some point before and forgot, but my browser remembers
[09:11:10] <Aria> But anyway, I found it funny
[09:13:31] <Aria> So according to Lucas, Palpatine is 100 some odd years. The actor remembers it as either 110 or 120
[09:13:53] <Aria> But according to Disney he is 88
[09:14:05] <Aria> Why would they change that? Does it ever come up?
[09:28:35] <Bronz|work> Maybe they just really dislike the idea of an unatrually long-living human.
[09:29:36] <Aria> Surely you can afford to ultimate baddie and extra 10%?
[09:29:40] <Aria> an*
[09:31:14] <Bronz|work> Also, he's 88 at what point in the story?
[09:31:23] <Bronz|work> Maybe the extended universe just has more content with him in it.
[09:31:28] <Aria> When he dies
[09:31:30] <Aria> End of Jedi
[09:31:37] <Bronz|work> Ah see, that's not his first death.
[09:31:41] <Bronz|work> *last death
[09:31:44] <Bronz|work> In the EU.
[09:31:47] <Aria> It is now =P
[09:31:51] <Aria> Yeah
[09:33:56] <Bronz|work> It was busy here this morning.
[09:33:58] <Bronz|work> Before I arrived...
[09:34:15] <Bronz|work> Also, we're down another BP guy, but I think he's just sick.
[09:34:34] <Bronz|work> the only BP NO guy we have is cross-skilled onto Schibsted as well.
[09:35:56] <Aria> That's a shame
[09:36:11] <Aria> I hope you aren't going to be too busy
[09:37:31] <Bronz|work> So far it's ok.
[09:53:12] <Bronz|work> I'm looking at the "Relationship green flags" askreddit thread.
[09:53:27] <Bronz|work> And... apperantly, the number one green flag is remembering what your SO likes and dislikes.
[09:53:31] <Bronz|work> =(
[09:53:37] <Bronz|work> I don't remember anything like that.
[09:54:39] <Aria> Good: Cakes and hugs. Bad: Car crashes and falling off tall things. Easy.
[09:55:05] <Apsup> I'm not sure if I always remember my own likes and dislikes.
[09:57:34] <Bronz|work> Hey Aria, you should throw those shrimp in the freezer out. I think I remember you hating them.
[10:51:54] <Aria> I've been modeling at the wrong scale...
[10:52:10] <Aria> I guess I should've guessed because it's very obvious, to the point where I can't fix it
[10:52:35] <Aria> But I looked at the numbers and was like "Well I guess that's just how the blender camera looks"
[10:52:47] <Bronz|work> ...
[10:52:51] <Bronz|work> Why can't you fix it?
[10:52:55] <Aria> My room was supposed to be 2m tall, 10m wide
[10:53:10] <Aria> I made it 4m tall and 10m wide
[10:53:27] <Aria> So now everything is made to look correct at that sorta size
[10:53:45] <Aria> So if I squish it to half height, it'll look odd
[10:53:51] <Bronz|work> Oh, I see...
[10:53:58] <Bronz|work> Well, guess your room is now 4M wide.
[10:54:28] <Aria> yup
[10:54:59] <Bronz|work> I wish it was this easy IRL
[10:55:03] <Bronz|work> You know what you should do?
[10:55:20] <Aria> No, do tell
[10:55:29] <Bronz|work> Go to #blender and say "Gee, I wish blender had content aware scaling. Adobe seemed to have that down".
[10:55:48] <Bronz|work> And then if they complain that it's in 3d, tell them Adobe did it in raster, which is much more difficult anyway.
[10:56:12] <Aria> "One size fits all doesn't make sense. But lucikly, we have a much more powerful content aware scaling editor that you can use right now! Just open the python console, and tell the computer what you want"
[10:56:30] <Bronz|work> =P
[10:56:49] <Bronz|work> No but seriously, content aware scale doesn't seem that hard. Just go by vertex density, right?
[10:57:08] <Aria> Yeah, that might be weird at points
[10:57:42] <Bronz|work> So is content aware scaling though.
[10:58:07] <Bronz|work> But imagine somethign like a couch, you could strech it without making the arm-rests weird.
[10:59:01] <Aria> Would be nice, yeah
[12:29:34] <Bronz|work> Hmm... IBM sametime has an API...
[12:29:58] <Aria> Aha
[12:30:10] <Bronz|work> I should make some software that interfaces with it.
[12:30:14] <Aria> Gnome chat client is sametime compatible
[12:30:28] <Bronz|work> Oh dang really?
[12:30:38] <Aria> Something I had on my computer was
[12:30:40] <Bronz|work> Empathy right?
[12:30:44] <Aria> I think it was Empathy
[12:30:58] <Aria> But it might've been like a Empathy fork
[12:34:20] <Bronz|work> Can't find empathy, apperantly.
[12:56:54] <Aria> Alright, I'll see about trying a nap
[12:57:06] <Aria> You guys take care now
[12:57:19] <Bronz|work> Ok, enjoy
[12:57:23] <Bronz|work> Dream sweet dreams!
