The Dozer - Part 2 - Low Poly Modeling, UVing, and Baking

In this DVD, Instructor Laurens Corijn continues from Part 1 and constructs the Low Poly version of the Dozer including the Modeling, UVing, and Baking. Laurens also starts each major section off with a brief introduction on what to expect during the process. He starts off by carefully modeling each section of the Dozer’s low poly mesh. Once the low poly is complete he goes into creating the complex UVs required for baking and texturing. Laurens then goes into baking out the normal and ambient occlusion maps. and finally applying and adjusting a shader in the 3ds Max viewport.

This DVD is perfect for those who want to want a comprehensive look at how to take a complicated high-poly vehicle and create a low-poly version ready for real-time applications and games.

Totally agree with Polytrics, would be nice to see how a industry pro handles that sort of stuff in texturing.

Complete Geek Boner when I seen the UV mapping part and the baking for AO/Normal Maps!! MUST BUY NOW!

Thanks guys. J24: no animation in here, just a little proof of concept with scrolling textures.
ZEE: rigging/animating will definitely happen. Texturing and possibly more is up next. In fact, most of that is already done even!

i would love to see how to rig this for animation, it would be a real challenge.

Ok Sorry, I thought that it is for animation the tracks, Laughing out loud

@J24, It's not a mistake Smiling
Laurens is talking about how to animate the textures on the tracks, and not the other parts Smiling

Will there be a part 3?
I was hoping for this, as well as texturing.
Anyway it's nice to see Laurens coming back as I learn almost everything I know from the last DVD.
