I'm amazed at what's being done here... got my Touch yesterday and really just had time to go through the tutorials and have a quick dabble.
Medium is easy to get into but getting exactly what you're imagining in your head if you're used to traditional CAD isn't completely straightforward.
The tools mimic clay sculpting tools but not traditional PC 3D packages. There's no morphing tools, no way to marquee an area and modify by stretch or skew, copy move or rotate, and no object separation, only layers. If you want to move or rotate something, it has to be the whole layer.
As someone who's spent a little time with Blender and a lot or time with Microstation & Graphisoft's ArchiCAD... I'm going to have to spend more time with this... but Medium is fun, so you really do want to spend time playing with it!!
So anyway, I just wanted to say I now have a LOT of respect for what's being produced in this thread. You guys really have skills.
You're probably right @P3nT4gR4m I think people who've spent a lot of time with CAD may have to untrain themselves a bit. Especially if they're over a certain age like myself!
....I'm off to have another play with it now
I think ideally there will be a convergence of the two types of sculpting. There's no reason not to have a morphing tool with marquee/masking ability. I'd also like the ability to better adjust the strength of the tool being used... not just the size and feather rate.
Having said that, these are early days and I'm really excited for what this will become... this is a program I can see myself spending a lot of time immersed in, to the extent that I'm probably going to have to move my PC out of this tiny office room and into the living room much sooner than I'd planned.
I have a B.A in Art and yet I'm getting intimidated by the stuff I am seeing here! I know how hard it is to create 3D stuff using traditional 3D software. Objects that look like they are right next to each other on a flat screen turn out to be yards apart when rotated.I expect to get my touch tomorrow so I will have to download Medium and try it out. I honestly don't think I will be creating stuff like this right away. I liked all of it! I hope there will be a permanent forum here for people to share their Medium artwork. I suspect this app will end up making a lot of non-Rift users very jealous!
Ok, so this is actually my third, but I dont have any pictures of my two first .Spent the entire day in Medium, my hand is sore.
