Goal setting

First of all, this project uses the standard game production process, using 3ds Max to complete the basic Polygon construction, and part of the production of Hight Polygons, and ZBrush completes the carving of local Hight Polygons, Marmoset Toolbag 3 baking, Substance Painter, complete the production of the PBR material, and finally use Marmoset Toolbag for rendering.

After the above process is established, production begins,

In the Low Polygons stage, Polygon is started according to the angle of the original painting, which is convenient for establishing the scale of the model.

After the Low Polygons are completed, in order to facilitate the unification of the material style, the production of the Middle Polygons, High Polygons is completed according to the material.

Production process

  • Modeling
  • Material production
  • Marmoset Toolbag rendering

Modeling

First of all, there is an iron table in the center of the scene, so we first set the height of this table as the scene height reference, the table height is set to 1.3m, and then complete the Low Polygons in 3ds Max.

After Low Polygons is completed, put the models together, and adjust the size and distribution of each model.

Behind the Scenes Spy House Production

It is established that the proportion position of each part of Low Polygons is correct, and some details can be added to the model. There are a lot of reusable objects, we have added different details to them so that the repetition is not too high.

Behind the Scenes Spy House Production

Taking these metal boxes as an example, adding different details to them can better reduce visual duplication.

Here takes one of the metals as an example to share the production process:

Behind the Scenes Spy House Production

After Low Polygon was completed, it began to add details, and then the model was UVS split:

Behind the Scenes Spy House Production

Points to note:

We made the prototype groove on the surface so that when making materials, we can use the intelligent mask to calculate the paint and stains, reducing the workload. When making circular grooves, pay attention to controlling the number of lines according to the size of the circle, and try to make Low Polygons and High Polygons match each other when baking to produce a good normal map.

Behind the Scenes Spy House Production

When making the lampshade, the glass cover is a Geosphere, to avoid a strange texture when the glass cover reflects.

Behind the Scenes Spy House Production

After selecting the sphere, click Hemisphere to get a hemisphere, so as to avoid the generation of strange textures, and then use the zoom tool to adjust the size ratio.

Behind the Scenes Spy House Production

The edges of the sphere need to add lines to avoid the deformation of the model and check for useless points or lines.

High Polygon Production

It is not difficult to make the metal part Hight Polygons. The edge position needs to add lines to avoid model deformation. Add a turbo smooth modifier to check if there is any deformation. If there is any adjustment, adjust it again.

Low Polygon Production

Directly use the Hight Polygons made by Turbo Smooth, directly reduce the surface based on the model with added details, delete the lines that do not affect the structure, and use the options in the graphite tool to check whether there are polygons.

Behind the Scenes Spy House Production

Make the Low Polygons of the sofa, make the basic shape of the sofa in max, and then sculpt the High Polygon in ZBrush, and then use the topology tool to complete the Low Polygon. Note that the place close to the 90-degree angle must distinguish between the smooth group and the cut-off UV.

Behind the Scenes Spy House Production

The sofa Hight Polygon is completed in ZBrush. When sculpting, different wrinkle effects should be added according to the different materials finally presented. As shown below: a relatively hard leather sofa, the folds are mainly distributed at the stitches, and there will be no large and wide folds. The surface of the seat cushion will be slightly concave and convex due to long-term use, and the foot cushion and the bottom of the armrest near the place will be slightly slack. The stitching of the sofa is not easy to be too neat, and a little curvature will appear more natural.

Baking normal

Baking uses Marmoset Toolbag 3, of course, there are many other ways, you can also use Substance Painter and ZBrush baking normal. But the advantage of choosing Marmoset Toolbag 3 is because we intuitively modify the normal.

The following figure is a basic introduction to the baking normal of Marmoset Toolbag 3:

How to Create a Stylized Cheongsam Girl in ZBrush and 3ds Max (2)
How to create a stylized Cheongsam girl in ZBrush and 3ds Max? In this article, the best render farm and cloud rendering service provider, Fox Renderfarm will share with you the tutorial. For part one:How to Create a Stylized Cheongsam Girl in ZBrush and 3ds Max(1) High polygon model/face/hair/clothing wrinkles When you've carved to a certain extent, you're going to ZBrush to make a high-polygon model. First of all, I add a new hem to the model that needs to be added with subdivision carving. Most of the automatic hem of ZBrush can already meet our manufacturing requirements. If there is some dissatisfaction, it can also be matched with part of the edge ring hem of ZModeler.When carving wrinkles, I usually turn on the Lazy mouse function, which can make the carved lines more smooth, avoid intermittent lines, make the cloth look cleaner and more beautiful, and can also be matched with some Alpha brushes, so that the wrinkles are more detailed and richer.!How to Create a Stylized Cheongsam Girl in ZBrush and 3ds MaxWhen making hair, it is recommended to use simple geometry first, with the SnakeHook brush to quickly make the outline of the hair, for the subsequent hair production to provide a good basis. When using the SnakeHook brush, you can also turn on Sculptris Pro mode in conjunction with it, so that there is no obvious distortion in some places where there is a large change. !How to Create a Stylized Cheongsam Girl in ZBrush and 3ds MaxAfter adjusting the simple outline, you can use the hairbrush to brush the hair out in clusters. Before brushing the hair, make sure that curve mode is turned on, lock the starting point, and then it takes a lot of patience. Of course, the best way is to observe how the real person's hair twists so that the hair will naturally look good. Details need to pay attention to the scalp coverage and to avoid some places "bald" off. In this case, the hair production is not close to the tangent of the scalp, but first grows up, and then falls down. Paying attention to these details, the hair will naturally look good.Finally, we use the "Automatic grouping" in the "Polygon group" to get rich, well-rooted hair, and then use the Move Topological brush to pull out some of the hair and make small broken hair floating outside to make the hairstyle look more vivid and flexible. It should be noted here that the hair pulled out should still float away according to the direction of the overall hairstyle, do not let the separation distance or angle be too large, otherwise, it looks easy to fake or not natural enough.!How to Create a Stylized Cheongsam Girl in ZBrush and 3ds Max RenderingSo far I've only made models, not added materials. In this case, Keyshots are generally used for rendering, because the model without materials rendered by Keyshots will look more delicate and have a good light and shadow effect. Normally, I will first set a warm light main light source from 45° down from the upper left, and then match a cold light auxiliary light source from the back to the front from the right, so that the structure is more vivid.!How to Create a Stylized Cheongsam Girl in ZBrush and 3ds Max

Rainy Scene Performance of Building Exterior
Rainy Scene Performance of Building Exterior
The best cloud rendering services provider and GPU & CPU render farm, Fox Renderfarm will share with you a good 3D tutorial to make rainy scene.This is a rainy scene performance of building exterior, from 3D artist Han Shilin. The software used is SketchUp, 3ds Max, V-Ray for 3ds Max, Photoshop, and Substance Painter, etc. How to be "realistic"?"Realism" doesn't just give each material a very accurate parameter that can be applied to any environment, so that it can render a very realistic effect. It also refers to realistic performance = according to your own visual experience, controlling parameters to make the map in line with expectations.The difference between the two understandings is that the former has no control and expectation of the final result, and is based on the idea that "parameters are correct.". Reference The reference picture is very important, this is an expectation of the final effect, such as light and shadow, atmosphere, composition. And it is recommended to combine all the reference pictures into one plate.!Rainy-Scene-Performance-of-Building-Exterior 1In order to show a sense of tranquility and quietness, a darker, rainy weather was set. The architectural details of this scene are not many, the atmosphere of light and the treatment of the ground part are very important. ModelingGrasshopper makes the appearance, imports SketchUp to make the main body of the building, and then imports into 3ds Max, and rendered with V-Ray. The process is very simple. The important thing is to do a good job of layering, otherwise, it will become more troublesome when importing into 3ds Max.As for the composition, a very low angle was used, as much as possible to expose the ground material and the wider sky. TextureThe main body of the building is far away from the lens, so only ordinary materials are needed, and the texture of the materials can be maintained. Taking the skin material as an example, the rest of the building materials are very basic.!Rainy-Scene-Performance-of-Building-Exterior 2Sidewalk and road eaves: indoor concrete texture package, because there will be a lot of dirt in the outdoor scene, so the concrete texture and the dirt texture are mixed together. The area in the close shot is relatively small, so the repeatability of the material is serious. Since it is a rainy scene, the roughness value is also very low.!Rainy-Scene-Performance-of-Building-Exterior 3PS. The main building can be modeled in SketchUp and then imported into 3ds Max. The environment and settings of the scene are best created with 3ds Max because the SketchUp model will have some problems when imported into 3ds Max, such as the UV will be messed up.Performance details (Substance Painter draws some textures)From the perspective of the camera, the pavement greatly affects the picture, so its material is very important. You need to import this pavement into Substance to draw textures.Import the mesh file that needs to draw textures into Substance Painter.!Rainy-Scene-Performance-of-Building-Exterior 4Remember to turn off the channels other than the natural color when drawing the natural color map. After drawing the natural color map, create a new layer and draw the bump.!Rainy-Scene-Performance-of-Building-Exterior 5Then you can add some standing water to both sides of the road.!Rainy-Scene-Performance-of-Building-Exterior 6There are many ways to draw. One of the simpler methods is to add a material to adjust a very flat height and then apply it several times with a dirt brush to get a better random effect. Because what to do is a rainy scene, there is no wet feeling. So adjust the level of the roughness layer.!Rainy-Scene-Performance-of-Building-Exterior 7One thing to note is that if you want to get the same effect in 3ds Max as in Substance Painter when importing the texture, adjust the blur to 0.2. For sharper effects, lower it. In addition, the imported map gamma needs to pay attention to, the map color of the natural color is selected automatically, and the rest are all 1.0.!Rainy-Scene-Performance-of-Building-Exterior 8Then it is relatively simple work and found some model-rich scenes from Evermotion's model library.Such as the middle and lower left cars. After that, I used V-Ray rendering in 3ds Max, and finally adjusted it in Photoshop.Fox Renderfarm hopes it will be of some help to you.

How to Make A Tomahawk in 3ds Max
How to Make A Tomahawk in 3ds Max
1 month rendered in 2 hours, the fastest GPU & CPU cloud rendering services provider and render farm, Fox Renderfarm still shares with you 3ds Max tutorials, how to make a tomahawk in 3ds Max. IntroductionHello everyone! What I want to share with you today is to use 3ds Max to make a tomahawk and share some skills and techniques used in the production process. This is a relatively basic tutorial, including modeling, sculpting, pbr texturing. ConceptThis tomahawk was inspired by a weapon concept image in "World of Warcraft". It looks cool and looks very beautiful. So I want to make it into a 3D version in my own way.In the concept drawing, I first observed the outline of the front and side and modified some details. These main structures are very important for making the model. We can see the white and black side profile in the figure below. The black is obviously more three-dimensional than the white.!How to Make A Tomahawk in 3ds Max ModelingFirstly, I split the model into three parts, the handle, the main body, and the axe body on both sides. Each part is modeled in the most suitable way, and then merged. This part is very easy and simple to make this type of mode in 3ds Max.!How to Make A Tomahawk in 3ds Max!How to Make A Tomahawk in 3ds Max!How to Make A Tomahawk in 3ds MaxThe axe body on both sides of the battle axe is very important, so its shape is very important. The thread exists for structure, so please add enough thread at the turning point, and pay attention to the thickness of the axe since it needs to have layers. Models that can be made separately, please make them separately. Use as few faces as possible, and make transitions as smooth as possible.!How to Make A Tomahawk in 3ds Max UVsUV production can be divided into four parts,- Plane projection: put the messy uv in a box.- Dismantling: adjust the UV without stretching and saving space.- Operation: solve stretching.- UV placement: a. The UV of objects with a larger model can be enlarged, and the UV can be reduced if there is less texture information; b. Try to optimize the UV space, and then the seams.!How to Make A Tomahawk in 3ds Max TexturingNow that the model is complete, we can start making textures. Firstly, I filled in the background color. For example, If the overall concept map is blue, fill it with blue. If the overall concept map is red, fill it with red.!How to Make A Tomahawk in 3ds MaxWe can use the concept map for reference. As the background color, don't use too dark or too bright colors.!How to Make A Tomahawk in 3ds MaxThe next step is to create a hand-painted texture. There is a concept map for reference, just follow it to draw it. When drawing, pay more attention to the light source. I want it to look like a cold light source illuminates from the upper left, so that it can have a good sense of volume. In this step, large blocks of colors and changes need to be drawn, and no details are needed.!How to Make A Tomahawk in 3ds MaxNext is the details. It should be noted that no matter what we draw, such as bandages, decorations, and bumps on the handle, we need to pay attention to the sense of volume.!How to Make A Tomahawk in 3ds MaxFinal effert:!How to Make A Tomahawk in 3ds Max
