Behind the Scenes: 3D Game Scene

Behind-the-Scenes-3D-Game-Scene

Today, as the leading cloud rendering service provider, Fox Renderfarm will share a production process of a 3D game scene. This project uses the standard PBR process, and uses 3ds Max to complete the basic modeling, determines the proportion of objects. Finish sculpting in ZBrush for high poly, topology in Maya, baking in Marmoset Toolbag 3, finish making PBR materials in Substance Painter, and finally use Marmoset Toolbag 3 for rendering.

The production is divided into three parts: 1. Modeling 2. Material production 3. Rendering

Modeling

Before production, determine what materials, objects, and overall proportions are in the scene, and then determine the production order according to the proportions. Most of the scene in this scene is walls and stones and wooden furniture, so they are the focus of the production.

Quickly set up their approximate proportions in 3ds Max.

Complete the medium face number model

After establishing the proportion of large objects, continue to build the remaining objects in the scene. And further enrich the details of the model. There are a large number of repeated objects, and several different shapes can be made.

Taking the above book as an example, many different types have been produced, which can reduce visual repetitions very well.

There are two pieces of cloth in the scene. Here we take the pillow as an example,

Behind-the-Scenes-3D-Game-Scene 4

This production uses the cloth calculation that comes with 3ds Max. The specific process is as follows,

Create blocking objects:

Create a pillow base model (the higher the number of segments, the better the simulation effect),

The end result is a simple pillow model. (The shape of the wrinkles of the fabric should be well organized, and the top is a simple demonstration. Similarly, curtains may have better effects).

Finally in 3ds Max medium face model,

Behind-the-Scenes-3D-Game-Scene 13

Next, import the model into ZBrush for sculpting.

High Poly sculpture

Here is an example of a house's walls and stones:

Behind-the-Scenes-3D-Game-Scene 14

The medium face model was imported into ZBrush because of the irregular shape of the stone. You can use Dynamesh (dynamic mesh) in geometry editing to edit the model.

Behind-the-Scenes-3D-Game-Scene 15

Brushes 1, 2, and 3 are used for large-scale carving of stones. Brush No. 4 adjusts shape to prevent penetration. Finally, brushes 5 and 6 are used to flatten some edges and corners to make the structure hard. Thus reflecting the texture of the stone.

The big ideas on the wall are the same. Finally, use the surface noise, adjust the curve, and the noise ratio to simulate the graininess of the wall and stone surface.

Behind-the-Scenes-3D-Game-Scene 16

Finally, add some details such as cracks and bumps to enrich the picture. Use the brush No. 6 mentioned above to suppress it again for better results.

Take the wooden table as an example below, first determine the material to be carved, and then look for the corresponding reference picture. Because the wood in the scene is too old, you need to find some pictures of old wood when looking for reference pictures, for example,

Behind-the-Scenes-3D-Game-Scene 17

The sculpting process needs to be combined with actual life, so as to achieve a more realistic effect. In this scene, the wooden table is a little bit decayed, so the edge of the table will not be made into a hard, right-angled structure, so when carving, you can use the brush to make the right-angled portion of the edge more rounded, so reflect the texture you want to express. With appropriate deformation, it can increase the visual impact more vividly (adjust the place with the Move brush a little).

Behind-the-Scenes-3D-Game-Scene 18 Behind-the-Scenes-3D-Game-Scene 18 Behind-the-Scenes-3D-Game-Scene 19

The wood in the scene needs to have an old feeling, so cracks are a good way to show that the objects are worn out. At this time, you need to use the reference picture. For example, a crack on a window plate can be carved according to the crack in the reference figure. This can better and more realistically and quickly reflect the material.

The final High Poly display,

Low polygon model and baking

The final low-poly model was reduced using ZBrush, and then imported into Maya for final low-poly model production. This can get Low Poly models faster, but the wiring will be relatively less neat. Note that it is important to distinguish between the smooth group and split UV where the angle is close to 90 degrees.

Behind-the-Scenes-3D-Game-Scene 26 Behind-the-Scenes-3D-Game-Scene 26 Behind-the-Scenes-3D-Game-Scene 25

The final baking uses Marmoset Toolbag 3.

2. Material

After baking all the normals and IDs, import Substance Painter to make the material. It is worth noting that the normals baked in Marmoset Toolbag 3 and Maya use Opengl mode in Substance Painter, and the normals baked in 3ds Max use DirectX mode. After successfully importing, bake the rest of the textures in the texture set-baking model textures.

Wall material basic process

First of all, we make the natural color of the material, and the natural color layer can add filters appropriately to increase the details.

Behind-the-Scenes-3D-Game-Scene 27

Add a dark color and use the Dirt generator. Partially unsatisfactory add a drawing layer to fix it. Add bright colors and color variations to create the approximate effect of wall decay. Here, it is mainly modified by hand-drawn layers. Continue adding color changes and roughness changes. Try to be as close to real effects as possible.

Finally, you can add an adjustment layer to increase the brightness. The material made in Substance Painter should be imported into Marmoset Toolbag 3 and the brightness will be a bit lower than that seen in Substance Painter. The wall material production is complete.

Behind-the-Scenes-3D-Game-Scene 28

And because the furniture in the scene should reflect the old feeling, the overall color is grayish and dark. The damage and abrasion are to reflect the original color of the wood, so the color saturation will be higher than the surface color.

Behind-the-Scenes-3D-Game-Scene 29

3. Rendering

Finally, before importing into Marmoset Toolbag 3, you need to set up the lighting, the main light establishes the main light, and the auxiliary light supplements the light source to maintain the brightness of the picture. And to turn on high DPI and oversampling, turn on GI global illumination and AO environment occlusion.

How to Use Blender's EEVEE Engine - Tutorial of 2022
How to Use Blender's EEVEE Engine - Tutorial of 2022
As the leading cloud rendering service provider, Fox Renderfarm, brings to you a tutorial about how to use Blender's Eevee engine. Blender is a great 3D software with a real-time rendering engine - Eevee. Similar to unity3d and unreal, this engine can create, adjust, and represent 3D objects and materials by using PBR workflows. How to Use the EEVEE Engine: EEVVEE uses the PBR workflow, which is the same as unity and unreal, and has both Metallic and Specular workflows. As shown below, you can choose the nodes you need: There are four textures required for the Metallic process:1. Base Color 2. Metallic 3. Roughness 4. Normal There are four textures required for the Specular process:1. Base Color 2. Specular 3. Roughness 4. Normal Of course, these four textures are basically required. If you have other textures, you can import them for free. Below we import the model Correspond to the texture, plus HDR map Well, the effect is not bad. But there are a few more features that make the picture look better, and then find the Post Processs Stack in the properties bar. They are:1. Ambient Occlusion Ambient Occlusion2. Motion Blur motion blur 3. Depth of Field Depth of Field 4. Bloom glow 5. High energy part Blender's latest version of the Cycle engine has joined the Principled node of the PBR process. This node is used to render the material that uses the PBR process offline. Already convenient, right? However, after seeing a lot of official documents and trying, I found that the Principled rendering node, working in both the Cycle engine and the EEVEE engine, and the effect is close! What does this mean? The following two images are shown, which are the same model, the same set of textures, the same material nodes, and the same lighting. In short, the settings are the same, that is, the real-time rendering and offline rendering engine switching. From-cycle Eevee engine screenshot Only switch the Cycle engine and open the window for real-time rendering Although there are differences, they are basically similar. The traditional rendering process is as follows: Vray or Arnold for Maya 1. Draw a texture It may be a PBR process, perhaps a traditional process, in a substance painter, Quixel production, or other software. However, there is no guarantee that the material preview will be the same as the final render. 2. Rendering testImport textures into Maya and test renderings using Vray, Arnold, or other rendering engines. And confirm the final model material assets. 3. Adjust the light according to the lens The rendering staff lights in different movie scenes according to different environments. With Maya plus Vray Arnold, rendering tests can take a lot of time and eventually render the final film. With Eevee's Blender, these four steps will reduce the time of production and are more friendly to the creator:Blender_EEvEE_Cycle_workflow 1. Draw a textureWhether you are making a texture in the substance painter or Quixel, as long as it is a PBR material, you only need to pay attention to the effect of the material at this time, because the effects of the EEvEE and Cycle engines will be basically the same. 2. Rendering test Importing the texture of the PBR process into Blender, whether it is EEvEE or Cycle engine, the performance is quite consistent with the software for making the material. Here, you can use the EEvEE real-time rendering engine to quickly create a variety of lights, a variety of ambient light, and quickly view the interaction between your material and light.And you can switch directly to Cycle without any adjustments and directly render offline. Cycle can also render in real time in windows, and it is very fast. It also saves a lot of guessing and waiting time. It is more convenient to light up than before, and the effect can be seen directly, and the rendering is basically the same. 3. Adjust the light according to the lens In this step, the rendering can be quickly illuminated with EEvEE and interacted in real time. You can see the interaction of light with the surface of the object, closer to the final result.Then directly switch Cycle offline rendering to further adjust the final rendering of the finished product, real-time and fast. We hope this will give you some inspiration and help.

Maya Tutorial: How to Make An Axe (2)
Maya Tutorial: How to Make An Axe (2)
In this part, the best CPU&GPU render farm, Fox Renderfarm continues to tell you how to make an axe.- Maya Tutorial: How to Make An Axe (1)")When I feel that there is no problem with the overall shape, I can start the middle mold of the detailed blade part. Continue to refine the three structural parts that were just split.We have refined the structure of the three parts. At this point, the basic shape of the entire model has basically reached the structure in the concept map.!Maya Tutorial How to Make An Axe!Maya Tutorial How to Make An Axe!Maya Tutorial How to Make An Axe!Maya Tutorial How to Make An AxeIf these details are attached to the basic structure, if it is not easy to make in Maya, you can use the advantages of ZBrush's rapid sculpting for quick sculpting.!Maya Tutorial How to Make An Axe!Maya Tutorial How to Make An AxeThis stage is just a transitional model, there is no need to sense volume or sculpt, like some smaller details, I just quickly generated the basic shape attached to the details on the whole.These are very time-consuming if they are directly modelled in Maya or 3ds Max, so what we need is to use the advantages of each software to quickly achieve the final effect. The software used is not important, the effect is the final.The specific operation is also very simple:- Masking- If the generated thickness is too thick, adjust the thickness and generate again- Separation model- Then adjust the shape according to the original painting.!Maya Tutorial How to Make An AxeWe need to take the topologies of the models planned in ZBrush into low-polygon models and import them into Maya for further mid-model refinement. Finally, some detailed models such as nails and ropes are put on, and then the models are merged, and the preparatory work is done for the model carving. At the edge, I deliberately added some notches and bumps to make this axe look like it is often used.!Maya Tutorial How to Make An Axe SummaryWhen making this model, there are more cumbersome parts. Don't be afraid. Just break the 2D concept map into many small parts, and then distinguish the priority and make it step by step according to the previous plan.Then sculpt some worn details to the model in ZBrush. Then you can go to ZBrush to carve some broken details. In this process, you need to pay attention to the overall structure and don't make too much detail. Do it first, then do it again, otherwise, the model will look too trivial.!Maya Tutorial How to Make An AxeThere are no details everywhere because they will distract the viewer. We only need to have relatively large damage in the distant view, middle-level details in the mid-range, and close-range views to see the texture of the details, and all the things can be combined to form a very beautiful model.When making a model, you will need to make the main character first, and then other accessories. The overall model's picture needs to be coordinated, instead of focusing all the energy on a broken sculpture. We need to use damage and details to set off the subject, not to make those details too attractive.!Maya Tutorial How to Make An Axe!Maya Tutorial How to Make An AxeBy now you should know how to make an axe in Maya. We hope you can learn something from it.
