Importance of 3D Animation Software

  • Posted on January 15, 2018 at 4:33 pm

D games are increasingly becoming popular. This has been made possible by changes in the software development technology. There has been a gradual shift from the 2D to the 3D technology. The 2D technology emphasizes more on the graphic’s width and height while the 3D technology emphasizes on its depth, in addition to the width and height. The depth helps to create an illusion that is critical in producing images that are more realistic.

Importance of 3D images

3D images are important in the film and cartoon industry. The technology is relied upon heavily to design 3-dimensional computer games. Some of the software is recommended for designing living beings while other software are ideal for creating objects like parks, buildings and cars. This makes it possible for films to capture scenes where vehicles are being blasted while the occupants are present. In real life, such a scene cannot be captured on camera. The software to help develop the scene often captures images of the real people.

The 3D animation software is important in the filming industry. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the graphic designer to find the right software for the best results. There are commercial 3D software and the open source 3D software. The commercial software can be valued anywhere between $1,000 and $2,000.

If you have a limited budget, you can consider the open source 3D software available online. However, the free programs offer limited features. The open source 3D software can be downloaded from the internet. Alternatively, you can receive the software through your address when you pay a small amount of money to cater for the shipping charges. In case you are new in the industry, you can consider trying out free software before launching out to purchase the commercial software. Some of the free 3D software available for graphic designers include Free Cad 8.0, touch sampler, Cyberdelia, Special effect 3.2, Serif 3D plus and Gmax.

Popular 3D animation software

Maya is considered one of the best 3D animation software among professional graphic designers. This software can be purchased easily online using a Visa or Master card. The Maya can be supported by several operating systems including Linux, Microsoft windows and Mac OS X. The software was initially designed by the Alias Systems Corporation. Currently, it is being developed by Autodesk Inc. The Autodesk Maya creates 3 dimensional figures that can be used in the filming industry, video games and cartoons.

Personalized, Interactive, Multimedia & Social

  • Posted on January 15, 2018 at 1:30 pm

Social networking and the interactive tools of Web 2.0 are enabling the creation of highly useful, personalized customer experiences. But only a carefully orchestrated research program can shed light on what users really use and want – and the results are often surprising. >

Point your mouse and click. Chances are, just about any significant Web site you land on doesn’t look like last year’s – or even yesterday’s – Internet anymore. It’s personalized, interactive, multimedia, and social in ways it never was before. There’s a fair amount of debate around what exactly defines “Web 2.0,” but there’s little disagreement that the Internet is in the midst of a fundamental transformation from a relatively passive (if massive) information medium, to a fully interactive, intertwined, interpersonal tool playing an increasingly central role in our personal and business lives.

It’s a different digital landscape than it was just a few short years ago. Somewhere around the turn of the millennium it reached the tipping point, when the critical mass of corporations and organizations established their Internet presence. Back then, screen size, Flash capability, and connection speed were the principal technological considerations. The customer/user experience question was still open-ended, because it was uncertain exactly what sort of experience customers sought, aside from finding information and conducting basic transactions.

If you want to end with an outstanding customer experience, you have to begin with a thorough understanding of customer expectations, motivations, and behavior.

Today, the stakes are much higher and businesses are scrambling to find their place and stake their claim in this new landscape. A whole new suite of Web tools are available to help craft next-generation Web sites. Most importantly, customer/user expectations for an efficient, productive, and enjoyable Internet experience are higher than ever.

Most organizations now recognize that their Internet presence is far more important than they imagined when their sites were built just a few years ago. Then, for non-e-commerce businesses, a Web site was often considered a mandatory exercise to be handled by the IT and corporate communications departments, important but not central to the business strategy. Today, the Web site has become a centerpiece for brand-building, customer development, marketing, and revenue-generation – a darling of marketing departments that has spawned a cadre of specialists. Some organizations are evolving their sites into the next generation one component at a time; others are blowing them up and starting over from scratch. Whatever the strategy, one age-old business maxim has asserted itself loudly and will not be ignored – the customer, or in this case, the user/customer, is king and queen, and success in the online world depends on keeping them satisfied.

How To Resolve ‘unable To Read The Log File Header’ Exchange Server Error

  • Posted on January 15, 2018 at 10:42 am

Microsoft Exchange Server is designed to write all the database transactions to certain log files and commit them later whenever the system allows. The transactions also exist in system memory, but get lost in the event of crash. If the Exchange Server undergoes unexpected crash, these transaction logs serve as the crucial recovery method. For this reason, the transaction lof files should be kept on a reliable system. The log file header contains information like file signature, base name, creation time, checkpoint etc. At times, your Exchange Server indicates as it is unable to read this information. These are critical situations that may compel you to restore the data from an online backup or perform hard recovery for your databases. However, it is highly recommended that you try to move Exchange mailboxes on another server or use an Exchange Recovery product to repair the database.

To exemplify, consider a situation when you receive the below error with your Exchange Server database:

Unable to read the log file header.

The error is logged as event 412 in application event log. The ESE error code that displays in Description section of this event gives detailed information of the root cause.

Cause

As the error suggests, it occurs when Exchange database engine cannot read the log file header. This indicates that log file has a mismatching signature, has corrupted header information or is corrupt. You can deduce the exact cause by the ESE error code the event shows:

1.Jet_errLog fileCorrupt or error -501: The header of the log file is corrupt
2.Jet_errBadLogSignature or error -530: The log files signature mismatch. The log file signature ensures the correct replaying of log files set and is included in each database header. The error occurs when they mismatch.
3.Jet_errDiskIO or error -1022: A disk I/O issue for requested page in transaction log or database. Generally, -1022 error occurs because of severe database corruption. For a log file, the cause is corruption of log file header.

Solution

You need to use any of the below procedures:

1.Check for the last online backup and restore
2.In case of valid backup unavailability, you can run eseutil /p command and later isinteg -fix command. It is a hard command and data loss is likely as will delete database pages. Thus, for your production database, it is recommended to use another Microsoft Exchange Recovery method like moving the mailboxes to other database or using an Exchange Recovery software.

Stellar Phoenix Mailbox Exchange Recovery is a reliable and efficient solution for repairing corrupted Exchange databases created using Exchange Server 5.5, 2000 and 2003. The advanced Exchange Server Recovery tool can extract all mailboxes and store them in individual .pst files. The software uses intensive scanning algorithms for database corrupted due to any reason.
