Rohan Dalvi – Procedural Texturing and Baking in Houdini
English | Size: 2.3GB
Category: Tutorial

The purpose of this training is to make a variety of texture based objects via the various procedural textures and patterns available in Houdini. We shall then bake these objects out to textures using the Houdini bake ROP and use them to build shaders in any other render engine.

We shall build textures using a variety of methods including UV map distortion, Noise distortion, Turbulent noise, Unified noise, for loops and slope calculation

3DMotive – Dreadnought Texturing Volume 4
English | Size: 1.7GB
Category: Tutorial

After creating a mesh, in this case a mechanical Dreadnought, it’s not enough to simple have a greyscale model.now comes texturing! Texturing models can be a daunting task because there are so many tools/programs geared towards creating texturing that are stylized or physically based, it can be confusing. Photoshop, a standard in texturing, is the simplest, most direct method to create first a colour base and then add details, via masks, to the colours for better realism. Once the model has a base diffuse/albedo, we can then still use Photoshop to create the glossiness and metal maps to support PBR workflows without requiring any third party (or more expensive) program to create acceptable end results. One need only understand the PBR basics to understand how using simple Photoshop filters and masks can help create the needed details to make our model look dirty/rusty and worn as nothing looks faker or more phoney than perfect colours on a Dreadnought mechanical robot that has seen many battles.

After creating a mesh, in this case a mechanical Dreadnought, it’s not enough to simple have a greyscale model…now comes texturing! Texturing models can be a daunting task because there are so many tools/programs geared towards creating texturing that are stylized or physically based, it can be confusing. Photoshop, a standard in texturing, is the simplest, most direct method to create first a colour base and then add details, via masks, to the colours for better realism.

One need only understand the PBR basics to understand how using simple Photoshop filters and masks can help create the needed details to make our model look dirty/rusty and worn as nothing looks faker or more phoney than perfect colours on a Dreadnought mechanical robot that has seen many battles. So, we’ll be able to first create a base diffuse/albedo so we have the colour scheme for the mech and then we’ll focus on creating the detailing/dirt/grime needed to help give the diffuse/albedo a more ‘lived in’ quality. Masking is an integral part of Photoshop’s suite of tools and we’ll be using it to help with our coluors as well as our metals.After we established our colour palette, it’ll then be deciding which parts of the mech are metallic, which are rubber and which are plastic so we can use Photoshop to help create the different textures needed for the PBR pipeline.

Gnomon Character Texturing For Production-BMGB-DVD9

Gnomon Character Texturing For Production-BMGB-DVD9
English | Size: 3.71 GB
Category: Tutorial

In this DVD, Ian textures and completes the game cinematic character he modeled in Character Modeling for Production. In this lecture, he shows different techniques to UV map objects of various complexities quickly and efficiently using 3ds Max’s UV tools and DeepUV. Ian covers both hand-painted and image-based methods to create textures for the character. From there he uses various ZBrush plugins to both block-in and finalize textures and he uses BodyPaint to fix seams and to begin new textures. Ian demonstrates a variety of other techniques incorporated in the Max>ZBrush>BodyPaint pipeline and shows you how to enhance the hair created in his first DVD, and take it to a more finalized level. Finally, Ian shows how you can reuse your rigs from character to character using Biped, and how to use Adobe Photoshop� to add an extra level of professionalism to your final models before submitting them to a client. In this DVD Ian uses: Max, DeepUV, PolyBoost, ZBrush, ZappLink, Zmapper, BodyPaint and Photoshop [Read more…]
