For quite a long time I almost did nothing anymore regarding 3d modelling.
If anyone is still interested in projection rendering, I start with a series of articles in my blog about this subject:
Sorry, if I did not...
From the above indicated rendering process here the results. These all are pure textures which can be applied on one single plane:
1. The original rendering resolution of 1024x1024:
2. Reduced to 512x512
On all images I...
It's quite easy. First I do a sketch with AutoSketch. Alternatively you can use any 2d program which can export AutoCad 2000 DXF files or higher.
Picture 1: A sketch for a instrument panel (fantasy sizes!)
In Max I import the DXF with the following options:
Picture 2: Max...
This afternoon I was starting with the tutorial and the first thing I did was a mesh of which I thought would be nice as an example.
The mesh is a RPM gauge and made of 17.051 polygons and 8.818 vertices.
As usual I started with a precise 2d drawing in AutoSketch:
You're right, I will start working on it.
I dare to say, that the most perfect mesh is absolute nothing without a appropriate texture! When I started with asset creation some years ago I needed roughly 80-90% of the time to create the mesh and 10-20% to texture the model.
Getting more and...
I will, I use this technique since I can handle texture baking :-)
Here I add a handle to open the hatch:
You take the words out of my mouth!
A lot can be done with Photoshop, but this technique here? By the way, I add a Photoshop action to the download section (...
Oh yes, rarely laughed so much...
I am sure, with this kind of community.
For me a most important indicator to take somebody serious is, how serious this person takes himself. The less, the better :-)
Hihi, still have to giggle about "...pardon?"
Gee, my wife and I still try to catch breath. This thread develops to a highlight!
I have a story too:
After one year in Indonesia I thought I know the language quite well. We always had at least ten children as visitors in our house and I wanted to tell them that I like potatoes very...
Sad to hear, maybe you should buy another mirror. Good you didn't say 'look into the mirror' :-)
Thank you very much! The strange thing is, that even my mother tongue is German, I can express myself much easier in English. German is way to precise, mostly you need a lot more words to say what...
Is someone here who is interested in the process of render to texture with projection mode?
A simpel example:
Here is the mesh, which has 19.226 polygons and 9.956 vertices:
The same with texture:
And here the result, a mesh with 2 polygons and 4...
