How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

This tutorial brings about the scene production process of "Classroom", and the tutorial was organized by the best online render farm, Fox Renderfarm. The content will introduce in detail the process from resource allocation to model making, then drawing textures, and finally rendering. The software used includes 3ds Max 2018, Zbrush, Substance Painter, Marmoset Toolbag3, etc.

Production Process

  1. Resource Allocation

Because of the large number of models in the scene, It is necessary to analyze the scene first, disassemble it into separate resources, and then allocate them to each member for production, and finally build and integrate them. This will greatly increase efficiency.

The specific division of labor is as follows,

  1. Modeling

Before making the medium model, we must first build a simple model to determine the approximate size and location of each object. The focus of this step is the accuracy of the overall proportion and position, so there is no need to spend too much time on the model.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

In order to better grasp the position and size, you can find the perspective angle of the original painting by adjusting the position and field of view. At this time, create a camera and press c to call up the camera for easy matching.

After the simple model is built, the next steps can be made according to the assigned tasks. The production process of the three representative models will be introduced below. I hope everyone will like it.

  1. Asset production

There are a lot of assets in it, so here are a few to discuss the production process.

Case 1: Broom

Mid-poly modeling

The manufacturing process of the mid-poly model is relatively simple, using a cylinder and a sphere to complete, making the broom simple and large.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

In the process of making, pay attention to the overall wiring distribution of the model to be even, so that it can be engraved in zb later.

High-poly model modeling

After the mid-poly model is completed, the modeling of the high-poly is carried out. First, analyze the shape of the broom. The broom in life is generally not very regular and will have a messy posture, so the details of the broom wire will be relatively large.

So when sculpting, I used the move brush to make a simple adjustment to the large irregular direction, and used the standard brush to simply make a rough sculpting.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

The next step is to sculpt meticulously. At this time, I used the ClayBuildup and Standard brushes to depict the details. In some areas with larger cut surfaces, I also used the ClayPolish brush to make the edges cleaner.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

Finally, use the CurveStrapSnap brush to pull out the rope on the broom, and then adjust the shape to make it more suitable for the shape of the broom wire, so that the entire high-poly modeling is completed.

Low-poly model topology

Because the shape of this broom is relatively simple, it is also relatively easy when the topology is low mode. However, due to the large changes in the appearance of the high-poly model, the mid-poly model cannot be used for production, so I re-topped a low-poly model in TopoGun3.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

UV unfolding

Because it is a single object, it is easier to expand the UV, and the model is symmetrical, which makes it more convenient to make textures. There are other models in the blank part of the UV in the picture below, which are not so big to avoid misleading, and the UV still maintains a high utilization rate.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

Texture making

First of all, each texture was baked in SP.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

Next, I used a shader similar to hair as the inherent color and texture.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

Then added a layer of color change and a layer of dirt on it to achieve the effect of distressing.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

The part of the broom wire is basically completed, so I selected the line on the broom and gave it a unique color separately.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

Three fill layers are used here to give different colors, and only the intrinsic color and height channels are turned on. The next thing to do is the part of the broom handle. I first gave a wood shader a natural color.

Then made some slight color changes on it.

Finally, some cracks and dirt were added to enrich the effect.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

In this way, the materials of the three structures of the broom are finished. The render is as follows.

Case 2: Schoolbag

Mid-poly modeling

The modeling is mainly based on the grasp of the proportion, and the main shape and size of the low-poly model are made through the reference of the original painting.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

High-poly modeling

For the production of the high-poly model, I used ZBrush to carve some parts to make it more like leather. In fact, the production of the high-poly model is relatively simple. For most of the details, I prefer to make it with Substance Painter. The advantage of making in Substance Painter is that it is convenient and quick. There are many ways to make models that are not limited to just one.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

Material production

In order to save UV, before importing Substance Painter, I chose to put together a few small objects to make. Here I mainly explain the production of leather schoolbags.

First, you can make small screws with normal thread to make the high model rich, and then give the background color to make damage.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

Secondly, the details are further perfected. The leather itself is not particularly smooth, so the unevenness of the leather should be made.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

Finally, in order to better integrate with the scene, it is necessary to make the schoolbag dirty and dust more obvious, which will be more abrupt when viewed alone, but for the overall scene, the details of a single object can be appropriately made more obvious, so that it will not be particularly flat in the scene.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

Case 3: Desks and Chairs

In addition to the atmosphere, the walls and floors of the scene, all kinds of objects in the classroom also need to conform to the atmosphere. Take the desks and chairs that occupy the most space for example. The main difficulty in making is how to integrate the color of the texture into the atmosphere. Since the model of this object is simple to make, I won’t repeat it here.

The specific operation process of the map is as follows (due to the similar process, only the table is used for display),

First, we create a filling layer, and create a natural color based on the color and material of the table and chair in the original painting. Add a fixed shader

Fill the metal part with gray that is similar to the metal color of the original image and then adjust the metal degree and roughness. Add dark and bright stains; Create a fill layer, right-click to create a filled black mask, add a fill, and select the dirty trace below.

The effect after adding dirty marks is as follows,

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

Add wood grain strength and metal roughness.

Create a fill layer, right-click to create a filled black mask, add a fill, and select the dirty trace below.

Add different basic colors to the filling layer to create a staggered effect of wood grain colors, and select penetration for the blending mode.

On the metal side, you can choose to add dirt again or directly make the final effect. The effect after this step is completed is as follows:

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

Finally, add a layer of shabby dirt that matches the atmosphere of the classroom. Create a fill layer, right-click to create a filled black mask, add a generator, and select the generator below.

Parameter selection (wood grain)

Add sharpening to the metal, create an empty layer, right-click to add sharpening, and the sharpening intensity is 0.5.

Then add dirt, create a fill layer, right-click to create a filled black mask, add a generator, and select the generator below.

Parameter selection (metal)

The final effect after adding is shown in the figure:

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

Rendering

The software used in this rendering is the eight monkey engine, which has a good display of the effect of the light map. Before importing the file, you need to unify the HDR environment used by the sky option in the eight monkeys with the environment used by the sp software to make the material. The environment used this time is panorama.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

After importing the model, paste the corresponding texture map. In order to make the subsequent lighting effect better, we reduce the intensity of the ambient light and use a pure color for the background.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

The next step is lighting. Three lights were used this time, which were illuminated into the house from three different angles.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

The simulated indoor light on the right side uses a yellowish warm light source. Through the adjustment of the illumination direction and angle, the indoor objects can be projected to conform to the environment atmosphere. Under the light shape option, adjust the shadow parameters to make the outline clear and the details more detailed.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

The parallel light used on the left is irradiated from the window. It uses a light source with a cooler tone, which is in contrast with the light source on the right. This time we slightly increase the shape parameter to make the shadow edge slightly blurred.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

Finally, we open the GI, slightly adjust the color curve under the camera option, darken the dark part, and brighten the bright part.

How to Create a Classroom Scene With 3ds Max and Zbrush

Then start rendering, and the final effect is as shown in the figure:

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
