Internet News   Internet News : DiscreetFX Contest: Give Aladdin4D mascot a name, and win 100 US$
   posted by Raffaele on 4-Jun-2008 13:16:30 (5692 reads)
DiscreetFX had recently purchased all intellectual properties of Aladdin 4D rendering software.

Now the firm (that is a well known name in the Amiga scene) is ready to launch Aladdin 4D as a multi-platform rendering software package, but there is a little problem.

Eric Schwartz has created a mascot for Aladdin 4D, a beautiful fairy Djinn... But this girl has no name at all... yet.





Do you feel so confident to find her the most beautiful name on Earth, and win?

If you want to participate, please send emails to DiscreetFX or write a comment on this blog:

And if you win, you will receive not only 100 US dollars, but you will win also lifetime free upgrading to Alladin 4D on ANY platform, and your name will be included in the credits of the program...

Sooo good!

I couldn't find an email address for DiscreetFx, none is listed on their site! So post my comment here:

I feel the name of my niece would be nice. How about Alannah? It is almost like Aladdin. She could be his partner.

Hi,

Well Aladdin is an Eastern name and all his stories happen in the East. His mascot must have an Eastern name too.

I think the name "Shahrzad" (with a silent h, pronounced Shar-zaad) is a very good name. She is a very famous character in one of the most exciting ancient Persian story books, "One thousand and one nights."

She is a young beautiful woman who is captured in a war and is the mistress of the Soltan (King). Every night that the Soltan goes to the dungeon to have her killed, she puts him and his soldiers to sleep by telling them a long exciting story! This goes on for 1001 nights! The book has a happy ending, but I'm not telling.

I think "Shahrzad" is the best name ever for Aladdin's mascot.

Firbodi

Hello!

By reading this - what happened to the OS4 winning contest announced by DiscreetFX?

Have there been any lucky winners?

Getting 'Aladdin' spelled consistently might be a good start.

Why it is Alladin/Aladin in the news, when it is Aladdin 4D? :)

@Dary

Ask Raffaele, he cross posted this. Maybe he can get that corrected.

Almost fixed it. There is still a lot of misspelled Aladdin 4d statements in the post. Also note the Aladdin 4d forums are at http://aladdin4d.com/. For those that I suggested posting it on the blog site, I apologise. The blog post says forum or email, not blog.

I would have. Except you need to log in and I didn't want to sign up. Besides, the post said we could also email. But it didn't say where to email. And I couldn't find out where.
