Mr. Finnegan's Giving Chest
As the "weekly favorite" book of OOMPH for the last week of 2005, Mr. Finnegan's Giving Chest also requires a full review and presentation.
DAZ Products used NVIDIA 3D technologies to bring CG images into storytelling with a brand new point of view. NVIDIA tells about the project:"The telling of stories has been a part of the human experience since the beginning. Even in our fast-paced world today, everyone recognizes the magic that occurs when you take the time to sit and read a book to a child. The artists and innovators at DAZ Productions wanted to make it even more magical—they’ve used their free 3D software, NVIDIA graphics, and affordable PC rendering platforms to give artists a new medium for bringing story visuals to life. Their first picture book, a charming Christmas story, combines the talents of the DAZ team and story-enthusiast Dick Van Dyke. Mr. Finnegan’s Giving Chest brings computer-generated imagery to the page and a streamlined, affordable process to the illustrator’s workshop."
