I've been lucky enough to download a 36 month trial of Autodesk Maya for free (educational license)! And I've been having fun with the tutorials, the first of which was to create a 3D temple. I'll be adding in 3D matrices of the fossils I've scanned soon enough, and would love to create some animations to show decay sequences as well.
Symeis a PhD candidate at The University of Queensland, studying the taphonomy (preservation state) of fossil non-avian dinosaurs, crocodiles and fish from
the Winton Formation, Queensland, Australia. Think forensic science or CSI for fossils, and you're on the right track!
Posts on this blog focus mainly on vertebrate palaeontology and taphonomy, as well PhD productivity tips and insights.
