Thread: Studio Question

  1. #1

    Studio Question

    I've really enjoyed the studio thread and there is a lot of talent. First that come to mind is Reaper, Timo, Ross, and Snaf. But I was wondering if it could be expanded to include programming for us less artistic types? I've made small games and apps that I would like to share and have critiqued.

    You could probably just put that in Tech Talk or Off Topic.

    Re: Studio Question

    That kindof stuff should be included in Studio. I dunno, its a hard call. If its really welldone, it should be considered art in its own right. After all, a gallery could include programming works. Its really up to discussion though.

    art or not it cannot be judged using the common list of visual artistic principals and elements, its tech talk, or it deserves its own forum "programming" its a completely different topic all together, it shouldn't be judged visually, its judged by functionality. Currently the best place to put programming is "tech talk" because programming is related to it. It could how ever use its own individual forum where all the code jockeys (such as kornman) can discuss stuff strictly based around code, how ever I'd suggest having a programmer actually moderate this forum (so they can determine whats actually original code and whats not), and all the topics would need to be focused around code. (aka not some stupid vb project someone made with an interesting UI, that would be more of an artistic thing especially if you didn't code the ui but used vb or some other program to make it).

    makes sense to me anyways... its really not a studio thing... unless the studio wants to be expanded to "creativity" not just artistic talents, in this case code can be considered creative, but then there would need to be another post type added perhaps "c" for code. The reason I said make another forum is because I've taken a class on some coding, and I know how complicated it can get (majority of everyone who is into studio art and doesn't take coding classes or hasn't taken the time to learn won't understand any of it), so it could probably do with its own forum, but thats really up to everyone to decide...


    EDIT: kornman, anything can be considered an art, IE I'm learning the art of skateboarding :O)

    Re: Studio Question

    What if we made a rendering engine?

    I agree it doesn't fit into The Studio really but we could have a section for it...who knows some people need nifty tools. :P

    Fine, you want to argue semantics?

    Literature is in the studio, yet it relies on a users imagination to produce any type of visuals from the details provided.

    Music is in the studio, yet it uses the sense of sound to convey it's art. No visuals there, it's all up to the end user to create any kind of "visuals" they may wish.

    Hmmmm, I wonder why they call themselves Bungie Studios? Oh right, because programming an engine is a part of producing (read: crafting) a game .


    art or not it cannot be judged using the common list of artistic principals and elements
    , have you ever touched a single line of C++, Java, or any other useful (well, Java in the category can be debated :smirk: ) programming language?


    Do you really except there to be a single set of principals to be used for all Arts? No, because they're all different. OF COURSE you wouldn't use the same "principals and elements" for "judging" music that you would for judging a horror story, a painting, or the fucking model of a sub-machine gun. They're all different forms of art!

    Art.

    How can a snippet of code be criticized? By evaluating the following (but not limited to):
    • Reusability: how pluggable is the code? Is it generic enough to support multiple actions?
    • Portability: Can the code work on multiple platforms, not to mention multiple compilers? What can one do to achieve this?
    • Abstraction: Could some code be further abstracted into less concrete layers? Would doing so be of any use? What kind of situations down the line could benefit from more abstractions to said code?
    • Style: not everyone codes the same, just as not everyone models the same. What kinds of styles can people comment on that they use as apposed to the OP's style?
    • Optimization: Maybe another user knows how to optimization a certain spec of code? Maybe another user knows a system\framework function that does a code that the OP has unintentionally reinvented?

    Re: Studio Question

    Kornman's right, if done properly, coding can definitely be an art form. It requires techniques and skills just like drawing and painting, and is just as hard if not harder.
