This setup was created for Robbie over at Cat5 Technology TV who wanted to merge two 220 degree videos into one 360 video without having to run through a bunch of steps and multiple programs. I'd previously done some 360 degree video for him for a different project so he contacted me with a question. Several hours later, around five, I had these two files. These files are created for use with a camera that shoots 220 degree video rather than full 360 degree. What the files allow you to do is take your raw video footage and put it onto a sphere in Blender and then render it out in different formats, equirectangular for example.
The Single-camera file has everything you'll need if you are using a single video feed. I've included two planes that you can texture with a background and optional logo so you don't have a big black section in the void where the camera recorded no data. Helpful Youtube Tutorial Video
The Dual-camera file has everything you'll need if you are trying to merge two videos filmed on 220 degree cameras. This isn't a fully drop and go solution, you'll have to tweak around rotations of the halves of the meshes to get your seams to be less noticeable, and you'll never get a fully perfect seam, it's simply not possible with this setup. Helpful Youtube Tutorial Video

Download Scorpion.zip

I created this low poly scorpion while doing a three video tutorial series on modeling, rigging, and animating. I was planning on sharing the model already for anybody that watched the tutorial videos, and liked the way the model turned out so much that I thought I'd put it on my portfolio as well.

The download includes the .blend file, texture, UV map, and list of animations.

I created this low poly Dimetrodon for a Minetest Subgame that I am working on. I'm sure other people might be interested in it as well.

Download includes .blend file, .b3d, texture, UV map, and a dopesheet of the animations(Walking, Attacking, Dying, and Idling.)

This beautifully handcrafted rolltop bread box awaits the storage of your fresh digital bread. :D It's setup to use the Cycles render engine, but could easily be changed to use Blender internal. The rolling part of the door and the little knob are rigged and ready to go so you can easily animate the opening and closing of the box.

I created this popcorn popper many years ago, might make for a good background object in a kitchen scene, the pieces of popcorn looks pretty good too, I wish I remembered how I had created those as I do recall using some trick to mass produce them. Anyway, here is the file ready for you to use and abuse.

The model is set up to use the Cycles render engine, though could of course be changed around to use Blender internal if you desire.
