Title: Adding a Felt Texture
Post by: yuhe on May 22, 2008, 09:07:40 pm
I want to add a felt texture to the bottom of one of my 3d images, my friends and I are creating a chess game with ruby on rails(none of that using a game maker to solve your problems). Anywho, I'm making the 3d models for the game and I wanted to know how to add texture to my pieces, I have photoshop CS2 as well, but I don't know if that helps any.


EDIT: I also need to make an animation of the chess piece moving(it's a pawn). I need to make it go at a slight upward angle, like you would move a chess piece in between your fingers, you pick it up, tilt it towards you, the bottom facing upward slightly, and then it sets back down. I need to know how to just do that simple operation.

First of all, please be patient.  You wont have all your questions answered in a few hours.  Next time please wait a day or two, if you still don't get a response then perhaps you can ask again, or give more details, or ask why people haven't responded.

Both of these questions are very basic and can be answered by reading the Anim8or Manual (http://www.anim8or.com/manual/index.html).  That's the first thing you should do.
I hate to sound rude, but from this question it seems like you didn't even try to get the answer on your own.  After reading the manual, trying yourself, following tutorials (use google, there's tons of them, including tutorials on the anim8or.com website), if you still can't figure it out after all that (I can assure you you will be able to figure it out) then come to the forum and ask the question.

thanks, I appreciate you taking your time to help me. Yes I know I'm a noob, and I probably should have done that first. So thanks =D.

After much working, I have managed to finally add the texture I want, but I still cannot figure out how to animate my pawn =[, and it's really starting to gnaw at me. If anyone knows a good source(besides the walk animation, already did that one, didn't help me much =/) please give me a linky.
