While I ponder the best way to finish my ring experiments, I took a break to do something different. My wife recently got a Chinese broad sword. I'm going to do a stone inlay in the handle. Swipe to see a multi-shot detail photo.
Too little, too late Patreon:
The damage has been done, not just to the company but to the creators who used/relied on the platform. And all those supporters who bailed? I doubt most of them are going to come back. Trust = gone. As ye sow and all that
Found myself reading the whitepaper for Storj today. Had a giggle at this bit:
"The current implementation assumes Storjcoin, butmany other payment types could be implemented, including BTC, Ether, ACH transfer, or physical transfer of live goats."
Gotta love a protocol that considers goats as currency. :)
So... it turns out that I was wrong. Blender *does* support multi-view images (and has since multi-view) was added in 2015. But those images can't yet be used in textures.
Somehow, I'd stumbled into a bug (or delusion) that made me think it was working. Bummer.
Back to texture replacement! At least I have a workaround. :)
So Blender's stereo rendering feature actually allows for stereo/multi-view textures (allowing left eye and right eye to see different textures). And apparently this feature has been in Blender for a really long friggin' time. My dumb ass just didn't know how to use it right.
So much easier than doing texture replacement for left/right eye views in the compositor!

Estevan Livingston is a changed man. Literally. All of his coordination is gone. He can barely stand. His eyes and ears feel like they're going to explode in a burst of searing, stabbing pain. Even his nose hurts. His head feels like a migraine and sinus infection teamed up and started taking turns slapping his brain around. Oh, and apparently he has a tail now. It's made of a bunch of pieces of metal and it doesn't seem to do much other than drag behind him... but it's definitely there, fused to his body just above his ass. It hurts like the rest of him.
He's not sure how he's gotten here. The last thing he remembers is being pulled aside for a random Fuertevirus screening. Now he's in a world of hurt, on the run, and completely in the dark about how things got to be this way.
So... I decided to set up an account over at mastodon.art for posting my art and other creative output. I'll boost those posts here if you're not interested in following me in more than one place. But if you are, feel free to follow me over at @monsterjavaguns
Heh. Didn't really mean to go on a rant. But I did.
Good open source feature development is all about users developing good personal relationships with developers *first*. The requests come later.
Way overdue for this.
