Apparently Apple Music for Mac has rabid fanbois (they are all men. All of them) and they are on Threads?! Of all the truly shitty products to stan, you want to defend Apple Music on the Mac?! I’ll defend Apple Music on iOS, even tho sync is a shit show, but on the desktop?! Man normies are weird.

@film_girl Yeah and I feel alone that on my Mac is where I listen to most of my music (while working) so it's extra rough

@christianselig sorry to ask such a dumb question, but is there a way to navigate back in Juno?

For example, when I'm watching a video that I have chosen from a channels video list, and I want to navigate back after watching the video? 🤔

@evankstone I'm sorry you HAVE to ask such a dumb question because I'm the dumb one here :p That'll be added in the next update

Blender folks: I have a 180° frame from YouTube that I want to stretch inside a half-sphere to make it 180° immersive. The image is rectangular, so I'm struggling with the UV map since unwrapping a sphere cuts the corners off, and scaling it up loses the spherical effect. How would you reconcile that?

@its_john_davis Yeah I suppose my question was more so how the heck do you format a UV map like those in the article haha

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@gme I guess my question would be how best to do that, do you manually edit each face of the UV mapping?

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@khaost That's so clever and so simple in hindsight, wow. Why is the UnlitSurface looking lit, however?

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@schwa @khaost Why take it down? There's so few shader examples out there :p

That's really fascinating though, is there an effective difference between the two approaches from a performance perspective?

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@caseyliss That was actually super interesting and applicable. I admittedly wish there was a "noob" section covering how the heck to create such a complex UV map in Blender though

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@dan Hmm but then you would lose the sphere effect wouldn't you? As the image would be wider than it would be tall?

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@dan Ah that's awesome, I ended up basically doing this, but splitting the sphere in half so only half the UV map is present, then scaling it horizontally by two so it covers the whole map fully

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@khaost Sorry, I meant that does look like it's reacting to the lights since it's all washed out (see source image giraffe) compared to using an UnlitMaterial without a shader

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@evankstone @caseyliss Yeah there’s a bunch of tutorials out there thankfully. Oddly not a ton on editing UV mappings of default shapes though like this

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@schwa @khaost Love me some shader examples, thank you! That reminds me did you ever make progress with that water shader you were talking about?

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@khaost Yay!!

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@dan Yeah, I should have elaborated that I needed it in UVs anyway since I'm exporting the shape for use in RealityKit

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@schwa @khaost Hahah gassy could be fun. But yeah I'm considering just baking the water animation into a USD and playing/looping it manually

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@schwa @khaost The user can't actually interact with the water so I'm not too worried about actually accurate fluid dynamics (in fact nothing can interact with the water). It's more of an ambient environment to watch videos in goal, sorta like how Mount Hope has the lake with little pulses

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@schwa And animating the changes isn't too hard? So many existing shader examples just seem like a static transform to a single frame

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@schwa !!

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@khaost @schwa Yo wtf

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@schwa @khaost Y'all are seriously the best, thank you!

@schwa @khaost That's too bad but on the other hand it's an honor to meet the guy who left the iPhone 4 in the bar

@christianselig Juno almost never actually displays YouTube videos for me in the "full screen" video setup. Am I doing something wrong? It seems like it tries to load the video and then falls out to the full layout view.

Does anyone other than Anker make a Qi2 battery yet? Looking for something slimmer than Anker’s but still with Qi2

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@Infoseepage Not Qi2 unfortunately. There’s reviews from over a year ago

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@joshwayne Yeah, they were supposed to come out in March, kinda weird

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@joshuabeny1999 Options are either MagSafe and stuck with Lightning or Qi1 and stuck with slow speeds and no real smart communication with the device so Qi2 is a pretty awesome third option all things considered

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@kristijan Ooo, interesting, thank you! Interesting to know about the Anker too, hmm

I have some personal news. Today is my last day at Apple. You can read the text of the goodbye letter I tearfully sent at the link below. I'm taking a brief break to catch my breath, but I'll be very excited to share what's next for me when my start date gets a little closer.

To the developer community: thank you. I've loved being a part of your journey, and I'm so eager to watch your success and continue to buy your apps. You are all magic. Now here, take a dog photo.

Oooo, Bambu/Makerworld recently added "boosts" to 3D models, so if you like my Vision Pro Stand that I uploaded, sign in and give me a boost, I'm saving up gift cards and almost have enough for a new 3D printer add-on 😛

I think I've narrowed down my small backpack search to the Aer Go Pack 2, Aer Pro Pack Slim, and the Fjallraven Ulvo. Any opinions, particularly around how small they pack and how well they protect your laptop, gimme 😛

christianselig OP ,

@JaymesRS This has been so helpful, thank you so much!

@jeromechoo Dope looking backpack, just a bit hefty for putting in another backpack

@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@freediverx Harder in Canada unfortunately

@mikaelacaron That's the large bag I want! Just when going to Apple Park and whatnot I want a smaller daypack I can bring that can hopefully fit inside the Travel Pack as it's a bit big

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@mikaelacaron Ohhhh, interesting. I think I'd still prefer a tiny daypack just so I can leave all my clothes and nonessentials back at the hotel haha

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@mikaelacaron Interesting, storing my clothes outside of my bag has always freaked me out but maybe I'm just being dramatic lol

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@gatewayy That one's really nice, but doesn't look like it packs that flat does it?

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@MuseumShuffle @mikaelacaron Hahah. I've used a grocery bag in a pinch in the past so I feel you, just aiming to up my game a little :p

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@mikaelacaron Dang you’ve given me a lot to think about lol

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@MuseumShuffle @mikaelacaron I don’t think I’m even wearing a backpack there so yours is infinitely fancier 🤑

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@hiiaminfi Those look so nice but I don’t really see any packable ones there that could go inside another backpack

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@gatewayy Ah yeah looks like a tank for that but I want something minimal for inside my bag

christianselig OP ,
@christianselig@mastodon.social avatar

@kemayo Those look really nice but are missing a dedicated/external water bottle holder :(

christianselig OP ,

@ct Haha I just watched that over lunch! Great video but I'm looking for ones with a bit more padding for a laptop
