I've known about this for a while and thought I should post on it, because people interested in 3D Animation will love this:
Basically they make the music and then make virtual instruments in 3D Studio Max. Using a special custom MIDI program they made, they can send any MIDI data through and the instruments will play it!
Its a great DVD too if you are interested. I have it! Animusic 2 is coming out soon too!! I can't wait
The best track has to be Pipe Dream where these metal balls are flung out of these pipes hitting drums and xylophone type instruments to make the music. So clever! Download videos if you don't believe how amazing it is. To find full ones taht stream, find them here:
You can watch the full things here...not all of them on the DVD though.
People with the ATI Radeon 9700 will have seen Pipe Dream if they installed the technology demos. it was made to render in real time for the card, though they are fully rendered on the DVD and look amazing! Going to the ATI Demos part of the home page will lead you to this download too, it'd work on all ATI cards past the 9700
Hope you find this interesting! I know I did when i saw it running on my 9800 Pro... I looked for it and found Animusic!
