I've modelled the strings. Wasn't till i'd finished that i thought about using a graph for a reference to keep them all even. duh.
I'll even them up soon.
The 3rd pic i added a logo to the strings, but not sure if i like that much.
We got snow in New Zealand, but don't see any bobsleighs around this neck of the woods.
Looks like yours would hoot along.
Do they wax the bottom of those, like a surfboard?
Hey there $imon.
Thats what i love about these things. Now i gotta find out about transparencey maps.
. I'm not 100 percent sure on what is a transmap. Is that like, the alpha channel? I don't think i've ever used them!. In the past i've used environment maps, and fiddled with the transparecey, an use chromokeying in video editor, but can't honestly say that i've ever used a 'transparencey map.
Hav looked in the manual,but can't see an explanation there, (did i miss it?), and nothing in the search here for transmap. (except your post $imon.
To tell you the truth, I'd love to know what a transparencey map is.
lol. Honest. Any hints?
But apart from that, $imon, i was going to ask, do you use free uv mapper, by steve cox.? I gotta get my head around that. Making decent, well fitting UVs.
Its such an important thing for getting a really decent result.
(and lights too of course, shadows, reflection etc.).
Looks gr8 !!.
