I think it's about time someone votes for the coolest websites. This one not included. ;)

This is mine,

yulia nau (http://www.yulia-nau.de/splash.htm)

it works better if you have flash. :cool:

18-01-03, 13:02
I dont like Flash... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

18-01-03, 13:17
gee Draco... dont go to my site when its done (very soon)... its VERY flash.

im gonna have a poll on it in about a week or two, when its completely complete to see if you guys like it. i used Flash MX and some Dreamweaver MX, but mostly good old notepad (or i use editplu, but its notpad).

The other site i did for this company i used flash too... its just so cool and capable of so much. Why dont you like it Draco?

18-01-03, 13:23
flash is cool. You old-fashioned draco? I have seen those programs dreamweaver and flash, photoshop etc...they look alright. MX is what we've been trying to get without paying for it.
So no one has any cool sites?

18-01-03, 13:27
Well, since I look at things from a business point of view...

Flash is okay, but you need to have an HTML only version if you expect people to want to come back more than once every other time they remember it exists...

I admit Flsh is impressive if it done right and the comp is capable, but it never fails, I always return to HTML, PHP, etc sites...and so do consumers who are looking to buy...

So anyway, if its a personal site, it makes no difference...

18-01-03, 13:34
Okkk...hmmm. Anyway...duffman or is scott?, I checked out that website thing your working on...very good...but justs need more tlc...and things to put in it. Is it for that sports analysis thing? I noticed how guys are so good at IT stuff...I think I would be better in the mathematical side..hopefully with java script and all the other stuff I have to learn at uni this year. What state are you from anyway duff?

18-01-03, 13:49
just to clarify i prefer Duffman thank you...

im from Melbourne dingochick. This sportsanalysis 'thing' is a company that required my webdesign services and also other graphic design services. The logo in the middle with the running dude was created by my good self (in 3D studio max - the thing they made Toy Story and other animations with)

My personal website is obviously not finished and i just chucked that up there as i didnt like the telstra (die telstra die! - hehehe - only Aussies will get that one) defualt page...

Actually, i am also more on the mathamatical side too dingochick.. this is just fun stuff to do for cash and in my spare time. im a programmer at heart and luv javascript, VBscript, ASP, PHP and most any other programming thing you can mention. I do a LOT of personal programs in Java, C++ and VBisual Basic for personal reasons and if people want custom software.

There is one site i luv - swift 3D (http://www.swift3D.com) - its a program to do some crazy web stuff. I absolutely luv the Tomb Raider Movie site, its very nice... Draco probably wont cause its flash tho... hehehe, only joking

dingochik, why not start teaching yourself JavaScript and other web programming languages now? They really aren't that hard to pick up on, plus there are tutorials everywhere. What are you studying in uni anyway?

Sorry, but I don't have any cool websites to contribute. It's been awhile since I've come across one that really stood out. You could check out mine if you'd like, though. It's linked in my profile. It won't be up for much longer, as I'm getting a domain.

As far as flash goes.... has anyone heard of swish? It is supposed to be a watered-down version of flash. If you have heard of it what do you think of it? I wondering if it might be something to look into since flash mx is kind of hard to understand.

18-01-03, 20:30
Well, i like this one (http://www.sona-sound.com) - for the fabulous artwork by Trinity http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif But hey, i'm biased........ :rolleyes: ;) ;) :D

Trinity34 - Swish is a program that will export .swf files i.e Flash files, that you can then embed in your web pages. It's kinda like a very cut down Flash/Director app (allowing you to sequence up images/animation/text effects etc.) with a simplified interface. There's lots of demo versions of it given away with various web magazines that you could try out. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

18-01-03, 23:23
Im going to build a supersite...it may have some nice things in it, but it will be mostly HTML...

All I need to do is get a server set up...

19-01-03, 01:33
Flash websites r cool, atleast they bring a bit of life to a slow 56k connection... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

As far as a favourite website goes,, mmm.. I wonder TLR *wink*.
I am releasing something very soon. ;)

19-01-03, 01:40
I didn't know you had a domain now, Ash. I had your site linked on mine so I'll have to change it. Cool stuff :D

19-01-03, 01:46
swish isnt bad, but swift3D is better. If anyone went to that site i linked above, they would see some of the examples are so very cool. if you click one of the products, then click examples. There are some kool things. But then if you click showcase sites and select extreme youll go to another site that has utilised this technology and has some fantastic examples (on the left)

plasma is also very kool, like flash but more 3D. its a cut down version of 3D studio max but for web..

Draco HTML rox, but dont forget to make it pretty and its hard to make HTML pretty with colors and shiny things...

19-01-03, 01:50
heres a cool site...

perspectice (http://www.2advanced.com/perspectives/index2.htm)

Hmm...duffman you could help me if I have any problems...I havent started Uni yet so I got nothing to teach myself with...IT books are too expensive. The only one I see around here is Maya 3. I am familiar with 3d studio max...have you seen 3d studio max 5? There are some other good ones like Combustion and Plasma too that I saw at an animation convention type thing. They can do really cool stuff. :D Say draco, do you know how to make your own website with just html?

How bout...

19-01-03, 04:39
why does php take a long time to load? Whats so good about it? I couldnt even load it...I see they closed the "thin men, muscle men" topic. I really want them to close the other one with all the naked women in it...if thats not pushing the limits then I dont know what is.

19-01-03, 04:55
i have 3D studio max 5....

it rox!!

sure, any questions at all about anything :confused: just tell me and ill c if i can help you out...

plasmas good and i have that too, but i prefer the swift 3D addon to 3D studio max that does basically the same thing...

anything, anytime, just tell me dingochick...

are there any particulars you want to get into?

19-01-03, 04:58
I am going to buy 3D Studio Max 5, and maybe Dreamweaver MX as well...

But even then, my main goal will be in business...

19-01-03, 05:30

19-01-03, 14:18
dingochik, you don't really have to be an excellent math student to do web design. Go into engineering if you want to get into something really mathematical. Web design also takes a lot of creativity.

21-01-03, 02:09
I dont believe that's true draco...theres nothing for you to see here. Trinity I am creative too...I'm alot of things...I can do anything.

21-01-03, 02:13
