    Inventor is Autodesk's atempt at 3d modelling and rendering and drawing detailing after the success of AutoCAD. Its a decent attempt..easy, intuitive, but has many falws. However, its fun and easy to work with. I am a Mechanical Engineer who was into robotics and comptuers (my first love after military stuff). What studio do you work for? I played aroudn with poser and bryce and what not, but i oculdnt' get serious into it as it was really...well...up there. My attempt at making a mini movie was awkward at best (a figure modelled after my friend with E cups...well...you know what poser does when you try to enhance the goods...let's jsut say that jaet jackson like momeent was the highlight of short...)

    Oh, and i'm not trying to pigeon hole anyone...into wanything. I feel that a basic structure can be utilized for the main comnents and the rest can be customized into it. I have no probelsm making multiple renders...i mean, i'm still trying to figure out whether the project is going to be an all in one solution that deos everything or a solution that makes the best audio possible in a single/double din box

    i work for a company called digital domain. recently we did stealth and i,robot.
    i went to college for mechanical engineering...well one year anyways :-) but i have never touched a cad program :-\


    i didnt' realize we were going with trying to make something we could cram into a double din box. i thought the main goal of this thread was to find a software eq and the proper hardware to excede the alpine unit.

    it's all good. we can all work on parts of this, first i think we should focus our attention on the audio aspect and then you guys can take the components and figure out how to cram it into a box...kinda form after function so we arent limiting ourselves on the hardware side (maybe you'd need a breakout box but that would be better anyways so the rca patch cables can put placed near/at the amp.)

    ok...here some more crap for us to look into. i am getting abit confused so i'm asking the masses about this one. Has anyone used Foobar2000? is this something we could work into our systems? from what i've read it seem promising. don't know the exact details of how much we can integrate from it but maybe you guys can shed some light on the subject...

    what we need now is a programmer on this thread to take on this project. hey red...you have the strongest reputation out of all of us...how about you troll through the software section and try to get us one of them smart people. (the ones that know about 1's and 0's...not saying we're dumb)

    Y'all have some great ideas and I hope they work out, but aren't we getting a little off the original concept of this thread? Originally we were looking for a software-based EQ to supplement our existing system. The project you're starting to talk about sounds like it may be overkill based on what we were originally trying to accomplish...though the ideas are very interesting.

    I've gotten a lot out of this thread...enough to try a concept that looks like it has potential. There's an open-source sound editor called Audacity that accepts VST plug-ins. Then there's a VST plug-in by Anwidasoft that provides a 31-band EQ. Don't know if it's one or two channels, but even if it's only one-channel and it works, it's enough of a proof of concept for me.

    Now, I'm still learning about the various front-ends out there (personally, I'm running FrodoPlayer). My question is this: Is it possible to send the output from our front-end into a VST-equipped sound-editor and then out to our soundcard? If this isn't possible, I'll drop it and look for something else. If it's possible, I'll start working on installing and configuring this stuff this week.

    i agree, we are getting a bit off topic...not sure how we steered toward a complete package thing... actually i know the turning point so what i said was b.s.

    I do however think that part of what you're trying to accomplish requires the correct hardware to make this a viable solution to cutting out the alpine pxa's out of the equation. If you feel that this isn't nec. then let me know and i can start a 'sister thread' that is soley for the hardware side and we can keep this thread purely software.

    back to your question... i have no idea, we should probably post these questions in the appropriate front end forums and see if the authors can shed some light on the subject.

    we need to put some pressure on the authors to incorperate vst plugin support in there front ends. I currently asked david if he plans on doing it in centrafuse but noone else has voiced interest in this. so if anyone is reading this please post a comment on this thread:
    vst plug-in support?

    also...if we could get someone to write a universal plug-in..that would probably be best.

    I also really like the anwida approach if it is possible.

    Its all good. Someone said design, someone else wrote what he wanted to see. You said "not it" . I thought "should be fun". I dont' know where we're going or what we're doing, but cramming all that stuff into there is going to be painful anyways. Dont' worry...this thread si about software EQs. i had a thread posted on it, but i don't think anyone liked the software. I hope you guys have bettter luck than me. Also, if you guys do get a good one, let me knwo and we'll get this All in one solution of the ground as best we can.

    well, i still think we have to rally up enough interest to get one of the front end authors to incorperate this into there front end.

    ON AN UP NOTE! i am in communication with a guy who is designing a usb dac with 4v outputs. I'll keep you posted.

    I posted this in the Frodo forum (since I use FP). Frodo's been silent lately, so I'm not real hopeful that it will get much attention.

    The biggest thing I'm after is a HIGH end audio solution, on par if not better than the Alpine unit.

    NOW, with that being said, if we can incorporate this into an all in one solution, that would be ideal. IMO $1500 for this kind of solution isn't very feasable. I'm considering $2k - $3k. ESPECIALLY when you consider that this will be on par with the Alpine unit in terms of quality.

    it's all good. we can all work on parts of this, first i think we should focus our attention on the audio aspect and then you guys can take the components and figure out how to cram it into a box...kinda form after function so we arent limiting ourselves on the hardware side (maybe you'd need a breakout box but that would be better anyways so the rca patch cables can put placed near/at the amp.)
    I agree with focusing on the audio aspect, as that's the most important part to us, and it's the MAIN thing keeping audiophiles from getting into car computing. With that solution, we can then look into incorporating it into an all in one solution, whether that's a double din unit or a screen with a remote computer.

    hehe - thanks for that compliment!

    I've got a guy at work, who is extremely interested in getting into the carpc thing, he's a programmer. He just bought his 8" screen yesterday actually.

    Once we get something more solid in the works, I can bring him in if necessary for sure!
