la suite de ma réflexion sur les outils 3d et la société moderne icy: 
(very interesting!!)

There's no need to have the complete node list memorized but with time 
you will get a better idea of what ICE nodes/Houdini ops are or are not 
designed for. With that knowledge it will be easier to memorize nodes or 
I would say easier than learning vocabulary. But it's still unlike ready 
made plugins like the geo elev mixer which were designed to be easy to 
use. It's more like using a radio thing vs. building a radio.


i have to thank you for your explanation of course.

as for the philosophy of artistic designing,
i am wondering about the societal structural function of switching from 
visual "analog radio thing", to ICE and Houdini "nodes" as non-visual 
radio building.

don't you think that the point in developing one kind of tool instead of 
the other,
besides increasing the possibilities of "resolving power" of the 

could as well narrow the field of the cinema industry?

you sort of increase the range of  variability of possible radio 
stations so much, like "struck by fear of loss", "panic" ,
that everybody "uses the same (difficult) learning curve" so much that 
the cinema industry gets more "rational", "organized", but less visually 
intelligent (even if more spectacular in one same polarized vector?)

the question which comes to mind is: with ICE, for example, how to be 
able to build a fractal nicer "analog"  little tools tool such as the 
"geographical elevation mixer",
which reintroduces an ability to escape the learning curve, which gives 
you all the spectrum of tools to be creative, and to discover (slowly at 
one's own rhythm) a personal learning curve, a more interesting one,
and be cause to enabling one to rapidly scope across a variability of 
radio stations, or pick up and invent new fractal and visual radio 

so my new question is: do you think it would be possible with ICE or 
Nodes: how to create with Nodes a tool for re-creating for Artists, such 
tools as the "geographical elevation mixer"??

thanks again!
