3d Palace Ultimax Apocalypse Advanced Maya Modelling Dvdr-ag
The Maya Ultimax Project - based upon the Ultimax Armageddon set for 3DS Max,
is a high polygon scifi hardbody modelling set featuring an end to end guide to
building a large carrier class spaceship based upon the concept art used for
the 3DS Max project (artist Jeremy Love) and adapted by Elliott Barratt. If
you are interested in learning high detail modelling techniques that will be
suitable for use both in games (via normal mapping techniques) and for effects
and film then you will find this single DVD set very useful.
3D-Palace training DVDs are unique because we go the extra yard so that you get
more for your money. All of our use the 'Cradle to Grave' method of teaching
where, starting with a completely empty scene, we then build everything you see
in the final finished images. No cuts, no pausing to load a prebuilt segment or
model. Nothing added, nothing taken away.
Introducing the first Maya DVD for 3D-Palace, learn how to create this monster
of a model.
Right from the start you'll learn important techniques for streamlining work
flow by changing the very User Interface to suit your modeling needs. Learn how
to create your own custom shelf, complete with every tool and function you will
need for the job at hand.
The model itself starts from nothing but a cylinder, where straight away you
will be shown how to manipulate objects, object components and various tools to
create the desired polygonal model. The set is split into 3 main segments:
The Arms, The Gun and The Engines. Each entails a mass of detail from
individual scalable turrets to singular rivets to produce a model not only
heavy in looks, but suitable for Film and Broadcast use.
Techniques such as smoothing and duplication are utilized to great effect in
the creation of the engines. You will also learn how to fake smoothing on
primitive objects through heavy use of the bevel tool. At the end Cris Robson
will take you into Photoshop where you will learn some useful techniques for
compositing your model into a hand crafted matte space scene.
