http://cgcookie.com/unity/2013/04/29/modeling-and-texturing-polygon-hair-for-game-characters/ Learn how to create polygon hair for game characters In this video walkthrough, we are going to take a look at creating polygon hair for game characters. I'm going to showcase my workflow for creating polygon hair for my character, "Mr. Grumples." I used this technique for the Mr.Grumples demo asset I created for GDC 2013. In the video, I use Maya 2014, but the technique can be used in any 3D application. Although the tutorial uses Maya to demonstrate the technique, it's not Maya specific and any 3D app can be used. Modeling and Texturing This video will show how to model a simple band of polygons that can then be distributed across the surface of the head of a character. We will then look at painting a hair texture with opacity to map to the polygon bands. We will also look at creating a specular map for the hair.

Learn how to use Dynamic Topology Sculpting in Blender http://cgcookie.com/blender/2013/04/29/intro-dynamic-topology-sculpting-blender/ The dynamic topology system in Blender allows for a much more organic, creative sculpting process. It gives you much more flexibility in not only how, but what you sculpt by not limiting you to the original starting basemesh. When working with dynamic topology, Blender will automatically tessellate the mesh under your brush stroke to account for the detail needed. This gives you the ability to add detail anywhere you wish, create new forms, and work with a much more optimized polycount since the tessellations are localized. Check out CG Cookie Citizen for more sculpting training: http://cgcookie.com/membership To learn more about using dynamic topology in your workflow and creating finished sculptures I also recommend you check out: Creature Modeling For Production: http://cgcookie.com/downloads/creature-modeling-for-production/ Hard-Surface Sci-Fi Weapon Sculpting: http://cgcookie.com/blender/cgc-series/sculpting-a-sci-fi-weapon/

Gun model looks broken? Maybe the face mesh was flipped while you were making it. You can fix this in a few steps. Never see those missing face meshes again. Update: Due to the Blender interface change and this tutorial is a bit outdated, here's how you can find the "Flip Direction" and "Recalculate" button. -Make sure you're in edit mode of the selected object -There are tabs on the left side of the screen. One of them says Shading/UVs. Click that one -Then you should find the options to flip the face meshes/normals under the Normals section

A video showing how to generate a Gen 4 rock asset from Photogrammetry data. Below is a breakdown of the stages: Export Photogram Mesh - Export the mesh as an obj and import it into Maya. Keep the mesh exactly where it is for taking back into Photoscan for re-projecting the textures. Clean-up Photogram Mesh - Here I'm deleting the unwanted polys from around the base of the Photogram mesh to utilise wasted texture space. Build Proxy UV Mesh - Using the Maya plugin NEX assign the Photogram mesh as the transform constraint and build an approximation of the hi-res mesh for unwrapping. UV Unwrap Proxy Mesh - Here I'm unwrapping the proxy shape for transferring the UV's. Transfer UVs to Photogram Mesh - Using the 'Transfer Attributes' tool with the settings shown transfer the UVs from the proxy mesh to the Photogram mesh. Next use the 'Unfold' tool to smooth out the shell shapes. Replace Photoscan Mesh - Export the newly UV'd Photogram mesh as an .obj from Maya. Open Photoscan and delete the mesh from the Photoscan Chunk. Now import the new mesh. Rebuild Texture - In Photoscan rebuild the texture enabling the mapping mode option 'Keep uv' and give it a nice high resolution like 8K. Notice the resolution of the texture and how it has removed some of the blurry and overlaid artefacts from the initial projection. Patch Photogram Base Hole - Export from Photoscan and import into Maya. I have scaled and transformed the rock piece so it's the correct scale and position correctly to the grid. After which I duplicate the mesh and rotate into place at the base of the original to patch the hole. Using soft selection and the sculpt tool i am filling the hole with the duplicate and deleting and unwanted and overlapping polys. Retopologise Photogram Mesh - Combine and export the patched photogram mesh and import into 3D Coat using the 'Import for AUTOPO'. Set the Approximate Poly Count to 500 and click ok. Next I paint the areas I want more poly density followed by creating curves for the topology flow. Export the resulting mesh. UV Unwrap Retopo Mesh - Import the retopologised mesh and unwrap the UVs for the final model to be transferred onto. Eqaulise the Photogram Texture - Here I am trying to remove much of the lighing from the original scan using a combination of the high pass filter and some curves masked out in certain areas. Transfer Surface Albedo and Normals - Using Turtle Renderer I transfer the Albedo and Normal information into the final textures. Here I have used 4K size and disabled the bilinear filter as it was creating artefacts around the shells. Clean-Up Texture Artefacts - Take the newly baked textures into Photoshop and using the Clone Stamp tool remove the artefacts coming from the intersections of the Photogram model and it's patch. Add Fine Detail Normals - Using the Albedo texture I create a fine detail normal map using Crazy Bump (you can use any normal map generator). Overlay this new map over the baked normals and fill the blue channel with 50% grey. Give the textures backgrounds and save. Add Textures To Final Mesh - Open Maya and build a shader using the textures you just created from the bake. Check out the model with viewport 2.0 or high quality rendering and some basic lighting to identify any remaining seams of unnatural areas. Here there are a couple of strange texture seams. Final Texture Clean-Up - Here I have taken the model into Mudbox and cleaned up the remaining artefacts of joining the two rock pieces together. Use the clone brush to blend in the offending areas. Et voila! A natural looking rock with reasonable polycount! Things I would do better? - Patch the hole a little more tight so the resulting baked textures didn't require so much retouching. With scanned data like this you want to avoid retouching as much as possible as you will be getting further from the raw data. - Spend more time on the retopology. I did start building a custom mesh with NEX but it was taking too long. I would probably use 3D Coats AUTOPO and then edit that slightly for more efficient result. - For final retouching I would have maybe brought back the original photos into Mudbox and used them as stencils rather than using the clone tool. Thanks for watching. Go here to look at more of my stuffs: www.akewt.com

Watch more How to Use Adobe Illustrator videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/513810-How-to-Work-with-3D-Effects-Adobe-Illustrator This is how to work with 3D in Adobe Illustrator. Now, Adobe Illustrator has a lot of geometric shapes, a lot of flat objects. But sometimes you might want something 3-Dimensional. So the easiest way to do that is, and I don't want to say easiest because it takes some getting used to, but it is simple to get used to. You select your Pen tool, and let's just free form draw a shape. We're going to click one point here, here, here and here. Now, if we want to make this into a 3D shape, all we have to do is go to Effect in our menu, 3D, and we can go to Extrude and Bevel. Now when we do this, right now it looks flat, there's not much you can see. But we're going to turn our previews on so we can take a look at everything. And when we click that, you'll notice we get a 3D effect on the shape. And that 3D effect is actually governed by the square you see in the window. And you can change the orientation of the shape, and the direction that it's facing, by rotating this square. And you can rotate it vertically, horizontally, or just in all three planes - X, Y and Z planes. And when you let go, it renders your shape as such. You can also manually enter them, in terms of the angles. But you also have an option called Perspective. And when you click this, and you drag it, you'll notice that it puts it in extreme perspective. Of course that's a little too much, so we're not going to do that. But the more we drag, the more extreme the perspective becomes. And then you can change how deep the actual object is once it's in 3D. So we can increase that, make it very-very deep. We can change our perspective so it shows more. We can also change the cap. This shows you whether or not you want it to be hollow. Let me rotate this so you can actually see. Hollow on the inside, or if you want a cap that closes the shape off. Then you have Bevel options. And you can choose if you want it to be beveled a certain way. As you see, it actually changes the beveling on this edge. Let's click OK. Go in just so we can get a closer look at that edge. Then bring it back up. Preview. And we can change the height of the bevel. Bump it up and you'll notice that the shape will change accordingly. And we can change how the bevel moves, whether it's inward or outward. And then, one of our other options is the type of shading. So we're going to click the More Options tab. And we can change from plastic , wire frame, no shading - which shows the flat object outline - diffuse shading. But plastic shading is the most common. It gives you the most lighting options. And then these little circles that are on this sphere over here, you can change to alter where your light source is. You can use them here. You can actually click this button right underneath to place it behind the object. You can add more light sources. Place them wherever you want and it will change the light accordingly. And all of these are going to tell you how the blending steps are, for where your lighting is serving, the size of the actual light, how strong the light is - Like, I can decrease this light. Let's remove this one just so we can get a better idea. Click this. Change the ambient light, so the light that's spilling off is either lighter or darker. And then overall light intensity we can change. And then we can click OK. And that's how you do that with a 3D object. And then you have an option of revolving or rotating. Let's create a rectangle, let's go to Effect, 3D, and Evolve. And what happens is, similar to the 3D before, we get another option box, but this one allows us to rotate around an axis. So, as soon as we turn our preview on, you'll see that the actual shape rotates around. And then you can change the direction of how it's rotating. And granted that was a rectangle we started with but because it's rotating about the center axis, it's actually going to make a circle. And then you can change the cap. And it'll open or close. Let's see. And that'll show you how much it'll actually fill up. It looks like Pac-Man. Then we have our perspective again, which changes the perspective of it. The cap shows that it's open. And you can change all your lighting options like we just did in 3D. And you click OK. And really quick, our next one is the Rotate command, which, in 3D, go into our menu, click Rotate, click Preview and it keeps the shape flat but allows you to rotate it as if it's a 3D object. And that's how you use 3D in Adobe Illustrator.

Watch more How to Use Adobe Illustrator videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/513774-How-to-Scale-Objects-Adobe-Illustrator This is how you scale objects in Adobe Illustrator. So, we're going to go to our handy-dandy tools panel and we're going to click the Rectangle tool. We're going to drag us out a rectangle. And let's say we have this rectangle here and we want to increase the size of the rectangle. Now, a quick way to increase the size is, if you were to click on it with your selection tool, you'll notice there are little squares on the outside of this actual rectangle. You can click on any one of these squares, you can drag it and it will actually scale the size up or down. But sometimes that can be rather annoying because it'll warp the orientation of your shape. And, almost everybody wants their shape to remain the same, unless they're actually trying to warp it on purpose. So, if you were to grab a corner, you were to click and you were to hold down your shift key, you'll notice that, as you drag it, the actual shape itself will maintain its proportions and its orientation. So it won't actually warp. Now, if we wanted to scale that, instead of it just going out to the right, and let's say we wanted to center-scale it. If we click that and we hold the Shift key and we hold our Alt key, you'll notice that it'll scale out from the center. So it'll actually maintain positioning based upon the center of the object as well. Now that's one way for you to scale. Another way to scale is to actually select the Scale tool. This is your free transform tool. If you were to click this and click a corner, drag this up. Same thing as just having your selection tool. Same exact thing. Now let's say we wanted to do this with just numbers, uniformly changing the size. We can actually go over to our Scale tool itself. If you look in your tools panel, you go about halfway down you'll notice, right above your Width tool, there's is a tool with two rectangles, and there is an arrow from one rectangle going upward. That designates the fact that this is actually going to scale. So when we double-click on that, what it does is, it gives you your scale options. The first says Uniform and the second one says Nonuniform. And you notice when you click Nonuniform, you have horizontal and you have vertical. Again, most people want their shape to scale uniformly. So what we're going to do is we're going to click on the Preview button. And this is going to show us what's happening to our shape, live on our panel. So we're just going to increase - bump up - the numbers uniformly. And you'll notice that it scales. All the numbers are changing and you can click OK and it will actually change that live on your board. If you were to double-click on that again, and we were to go to Nonuniform, let's say we change this only to change the horizontal aspect. If we were to change that, you'll notice that it increases or decreases left and right. If we were to do it vertically, same thing. Now, you'll notice that, in your options panel you have a Scale, Strokes and Effects. If at some point in time, you decide to add effects onto an object, or part of your artwork, you want to scale it, or if you have a stroke around your object, it will actually scale the stroke according to the size of the object. So right now, as is, let's add a black stroke and let's increase the size. All right. So now we have this rectangle with a black stroke. We want to scale that. If we were to scale this up, let's say 200%, you'll notice that the stroke stays the same size. Now if we were to go back down, all right, and to copy you can Command-C or Control-C and you can Command- or Control-F to just paste in front. Now, if we were to scale this object without the scale and stroke effects at 200%, the stroke remains the same. But if we were to scale this at 200% but scale, stroke and effects, you'll notice that the stroke will double, just like the size doubled. And that's how you work with the scale tool in Adobe Illustrator.

This Video Series is an introduction to games development using Blender 2.64 and assumes a basic knowledge of other 3D modeling software and concepts. I am a student not an expert so research areas of interest further yourself. Here is a list of hotkeys I use and further information: The video is in a random order. You should make all faces before you unwrap, unwrap before you bind the rig(start skinning) and animate once the rig is final. But going back and forth a lot helps. Rigs can be copied over and re-weighted. You will be best off creating a few animations to test the limitations on your rig when skinning. NB: in the latest version of blender remove doubles might be missing I think it has been renamed but I don't know to what yet. Also rotation by default might be around the 3D cursor I don't know where to change this but I assume it will be changing a drop down menu from 3D cursor to Local or Origin. This is just my description of important ones see full documentation: http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Doc:2.4/Reference/Hotkeys/All Many of the hotkeys open menus with descriptive options such as Merge Vertex options: at first, at last, at centre.

This is like merging all vertices in Maya within a small range. You should try remove doubles on all finished meshes before unwrapping where you've extruded parts as cancelling extrude can lead to duplicated vertexes. To move the origin of an object set the location of the 3D cursor in the (N) options menu. Then in Object Mode select Origin from the top of the toolbox(T) on the left and choose origin to 3D cursor.

Watch full MasterClass at http://autode.sk/16WNTWk In this Session I will be discussing on Creating a 3d Golf Course layout in Maya for Unity3D Game Engine (Mobile Platform).I will start with Golf Course Basic concept plan in Photoshop.Keeping real life measurements and scale in mind will be going forward with the basic layout and terrain modeling.After giving all the details and optimizations will move forward with creating and placing different props like shrubs,trees and rocks etc.Creating colliding mesh is the next task.Once that is done we will move forward with texturing and alpha blending techniques.In this section we will also learn to create Horizon and Sky in the best possible and optimal way.Once the Layout is ready I will also discuss the pipeline for character modeling and its limitations for Mobile Platform.Next I will demonstrate the ideal way of creating bone setup to support Motion Capture Data and in the end we will go through some exports options for Unity3D.
