Java games rock!


« Posted 2004-11-18 20:00:16 »

I am designing a small modelling application based on a software rendering package im still developing.

For the modeling im still gathering requirements and  thats the reason of this query. I would apreceate if you could spare some time to answer these questions.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tell me about yourself, please.

U1. Whats your experience with computers ?

a. Internet user
b. Ocasionaly use common applications
c. Daily work with computers

U2. Do you use modelling applications often ?

a. Never
b. Ocasionaly
c. Every week
d. Every day

U3. What do you know anything about art ?

a. Nothing
b. Self-learned a little
c. Im good at it but no schooll formation
d. I have schooll formation on art

U4. How good are you in all these areas

NOTE1: multiple choice. For example answer
"a=2 b=1 c=1 d=1"
with answer letter followed by the grade. The grade is in the scale: 1 is worst, 3 average, 5 best)

a. Modelling geometry
b. Texturing (creating and applying textures)
c. Lighting scenes
d. Animating

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tell me about your modelling experience, please.

a. 1+
b. 5+

NOTE: Multiple choice. Choose all that apply.

a.  navigation tools
