Interesting....I'd like to see how your project turns out. :)

GREAT JOB!! Wow...this image really shows anim8or's full potential. Did you use a UV mapping program to texture the mech or did you just use anim8or's built in UV modifier? I'd really like to know  :)

Ok thank you very much for the tip $imon.  ;D

General Anim8or Forum / Texturing a Subdivided Mesh
« on: April 06, 2009, 03:19:09 pm »
I know that there are two ways to subdivide an object by either permanantly subdividing or converting the mesh to a subdivision object. I noticed that when ever I imported a subdivision object into UV mapper, it would convert the object back to its low poly form.

So here are my two questions....

Is it ok to texture the low poly mesh and then convert it back to a subdivision object in anim8or? I'm worried that if I do this, the texture will become warped.


Should I permenantly subdivide the mesh and then texture it?     :-[

General Anim8or Forum / Problem with scaling
« on: March 01, 2009, 04:09:24 pm »
I'm having a problem with the non uniform scale tool in anim8or.

For instance, lets say i have two verticies across from each other on the x axis and I want to scale them further apart on the x- axis. Sometimes, when I use the non uniform scale on the two vertices, they either scale to one side (instead of apart) or they scale apart but at unequal rates, making the model look non symetrical.

Am I doing something wrong or is this some kind of bug? ???

Not bad for a first try, I like your concepts. The texture on the keyboard is a little streched though. To prevent this, you should use a UV mapping program (such as UV Mapper) to unwrap your mesh and apply the texture in a program like MS paint or photoshop.

really cool nice retro look.

just wondering how you did the purple light line on the crafts uper hull

beuattiful textures realy great work

@lizeal93: After I unwrapped the body in UV mapper I imported the texture map into gimp. I then painted a straight blue line on the droid body and then painted succesively lighter blue lines that were thinner than the first (this gave it a glowing look). I then imported the texture into anim8or in the emmissive slot (i also set the emmisive to 1 and gave it a blue color) so when the render is complete, the line appears to be glowing. ;)

Well done.  The improvements in the final composited render are definitely noticed.  I like your texturing job, as I seem to find that not many brave out very far in texturing on these forums.  My only criticism's are that the mesh is pretty lowpoly and you lose any smoothness you would want on the body of the droid.  The ground bumpmap is a bit low quality and could perhaps be ramped up a bit.  Lastly, the flames, if hitting the ground would normally flare out and come back up a bit, though that's not very noticeable.
As I said, that's a nice render and well composited :)

@hihiosilver: Thank you very much. Yeah I agree the droid could be smoother and the ground does need I higher resolution texture but I'm glad you like it. I had fun texturing this one :)

Here's the final image. I composited the ambient occlusion and color render to give the picture more realistic shadows and added a space background. I also sharpened the image up a bit and did some color correction.

So what do you guys think  :)

Maybe restarting your computer will help  ???

Here's the normal render and the ambient occlusion render. I plan to composite the two in Gimp and do some post production work. Can't wait to finish!  :)

Wow looks great. How did you get the headlights to reflect light like that?

Well I have to say things are comming along.  :D
Here are some updates on the model. As you can see I've done some texturing  ;). I decided to give the droid a used, old, gritty look.
 The third picture is the model with just the bump map applied.

I decided that I'm not going to do a full scene for the sake of time right now (I have midterms to worry about) so I had an idea to do a render of the droid mining on some martian land. I'm just going to model the land on a platform like thing

Constructive critism is always welcome.
