General Anim8or Forum / Re: how do i make a wood texture?
« on: October 22, 2008, 11:06:33 pm »
Such a basic question! Have you thought to look at the manual? It should be the first thing beginners should look at before using Anim8or and asking questions in the forum.

And obviously, to get the wood texture itself you can either take some photos from a camera or get them off the internet (Google Image Search ftw)

I agree regarding the higher contrast in the ART renderer making it look better. If you made the contrast darker/sharper in the scanline version then it'd probably look just as good ;)

Nice render(s)!

Nice job on Wall-E :) The gears in the treads look like it could do with some more work (seems different in the movie version) but you seemed to hint that that was still in progress so good luck ;)

Heh, papercraft does the work for you, eh. Watch out for copyright infringements! (just trying to give you a scare ;))

You've got a ton of empty space in that uvmap, you should try packing them together a bit more closer so that you don't have huge file sizes and a bunch of ram/cpu hogging.

jpcr: Thanks!

almost cool: It's all part of his secret art of buttock bashing, shh... ;) As for the high polygon's higher than I wanted but it's not really high in general. Nowadays models can go up into the 10k for the latest generation games, and even the cheapest new computers on the shelves now can handle the level I'm going for. Not to mention that the main focus in today's graphics optimizations is textures, not triangles.

3D Joe Wiltshire: Thanks :) It's funny how personally I don't rate the gritty version as being well done but some people like it more than others. It's all in the eye of the beholder I guess ;)

Guilherme Amorim: Sorry about that, I was just agreeing with you ;) Thanks, and hopefully I can find myself a good game engine to work with so that you guys can try it out (and I get my portfolio filler :))

WIP Render 1 (400 Triangles)

To-Do: Rigging, Animation

Hum-V is the Burlap Man's little sidekick! He'll be flying around the Burlap Man and attacking creatures as well similar to how BEAT from Megaman did, except less deadly (no one-hit kills ;)). He'll mostly be distracting a single enemy until you come around to "converting" it.

This guy's low poly and low in texture resolution (256x256) because he's going to be pretty small on the screen, so there won't be any close-ups.

Next up is animation, I'm going to take a break from modeling and search for game engines and then rig and animate based on the specs of the game engine I choose, so wish me luck ;)

I liked the Spyro games too :) I dare not play them again though because I probably won't like them as much as I remember ;)

You've got a pretty good likeness going so far, I think the eyes could be a little larger with a more spherical head though, but good job so far ;)

Anim8or v0.98 Discussion Forum / .Obj export crash (broken material used)
« on: October 21, 2008, 07:33:34 pm »
Attached is the file as the example. I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate but anyone should be able to reproduce it...

Just open the file and you should see a sphere with a material with bad references to a texture file. Go to Object->Export, export the file and it'll crash and produce an invalid .obj/.mtl file.

Mactetra: Thanks! Well, that is the toon version of the fish so I guess the texture did its job ;)

Guilherme Amorim: Sho 'nuf

WIP Render 2 (700 Triangles)

To-Do: Rigging, Animation

Ok, I really don't like this gritty version but I had to rush and squeeze it in before work, so there you go! Gave him a party hat instead ;)

Cool, I like the humor :)

I think the run cycle could be tweaked a little bit, I think one leg's limping compared to the other? Not sure but keep up the good work :)

Pretty good, though for that composite the textures need to be sharper and more crisp, looks a little blurry at the moment. Interesting story behind it :)

Not too bad. Personally I like the unpainted subdivided one (High Poly mon.jpg) best. Keep practicing with the sculpting/painting ;)

3D Joe Wiltshire: Thanks! What's hard is to get the cute look down. I don't think I've got it yet so it's more like "gritty vs cartoony" :P But whatever, right? ;)

WIP Render 1 (750 Triangles)

To-Do: Gritty Texture, Rigging, Animation

Ok, so penguins don't live in jungles and fish don't float in the air, but this wasn't a realistic game to begin with ;) Time to work on the gritty version!

Thanks guys! I appreciate the encouragement :)

WIP Render 2 (720 Triangles)

To-Do: Rigging, Animation

Peng-O's done! The Gritty (seems more gritty instead of ugly :P) counterpart is complete, time for the next creature! By the way, gonna try and give every single creature a hat of some sort just for the heck of it ;)
