Iron Man UI: Almost there.... plus a new song called "Renewal"

It's been a couple weeks since I last posted anything about this project.  It's almost done.  I have a bunch of additions.  Last time I mentioned the need for one big unifying piece to help tie all the separate elements.  Here is a quick image of what that looks like:
This consists of a bulls eye element in the middle which can rotate independently from the rest of the parts.  Since there is so much other movement going on in the visualization, I elected to keep this element completely static.  To represent the music, it has a texture ring which emanates outwards exposing parts of the complete design.   The tutorial in my previous post demonstrates how to do this effect.

Finally, I added a few arcs that rise and sink around the central column.

There are a few more finishing touches like showing how this whole thing moves through space which I'll get to in my next post.

I got a bit side tracked because I had to compose a new piece of music for this animation. The piece of music is all finished and should go live later this week.  For now, you can check out a snippet of it in this video.  It's called "Renewal"



Much more awesomeness to come so stay tuned....

Alembic fluid caches in Unity

Looking into using Alembic fluid caches in Unity.  Not sure if this is fully ready for prime time but exploring it.  Lots of great function...
