Model placement

After the low model is completed, place it according to the set camera angle in the entire scene. The position and size of the model need to be exactly the same as the original image. After the placement, the ID is separated according to the material. Note that the name of the material needs to be the same as the name of the model. Then add a shader, and finally export the scene resources to Substance Painter to make textures.

Texturing

Before making the texture, we need to make all the UVS of the low mode well. Note that the accuracy of the UV needs to be consistent with the whole scene. After dividing the UVS, match it with the high-poly to make the two models completely overlap and bake the normal, And then open the exported model resources in Substance Painter, and bake the remaining textures in Substance Painter.

It should be noted that the texture of the house needs to be made with seamless textures, while the billboard UVS needs to be done in Substance Painter for the content and colors of the advertisement, and then mapped to the model.

Let's share the basic process of material with the shark head.

  1. For the production of basic colors, the shark head is divided into several parts, eyes, teeth, black part, and white part of the shark head, as well as the tongue, gums, and oral cavity.
  2. Create different layers and give black masks, and use the UVS fill in the geometry fill to select the range. It should be noted here that when the model is made and when the UVS is split, it is necessary to think about the wiring between different materials on the same object in advance. When making shark heads, there is the wiring between different materials, so that we can cut along the line when we develop UVS. And we can choose the range while making the material. We can also add a brush tool to draw after using the mask, select the range or make the ID map in 3ds Max, and select the color in Substance Painter. Specific materials are selected according to different models and materials.

In the basic step, not only the color, roughness, and metallicity of the model shall be adjusted, but also filters, color levels, etc. shall be added to the background color according to the material of the object to enhance the texture of the object. Use some procedural textures or masks, combined with brushes to draw dirty marks. Carry out some detailed descriptions, through procedural textures, generators, etc., to increase some surface details such as scratches, damage, stains, dust, etc., which can be adjusted by adding a brush.

Due to a large number of scene props, the workload is heavy. The Marmoset toolbag was used for test rendering at the beginning, but the effect was not very good, and the screen display was slightly shiny and rendered. There is also a certain difference between the atmosphere of the whole scene and the original painting. Finally, the V-ray renderer is used, and the still frame rendering scheme is adopted, which can improve the rendering quality of the scene.

After learning some basic rendering operations of V-ray, I decided to rearrange some parts.

  1. Texture: Due to the difference between the V-ray texture process and Substance Painter's PBR scene channel, it was tested many times in the early stage, and finally the texture was mapped to the correct path one by one.

Lighting: V-Ray has a rich variety of lighting. The main light source I use is V-Ray Sun, and there are some auxiliary light sources, area lights, and point lights. I encountered many problems when adjusting the light, such as choosing the type of light, controlling the intensity of the light, and the placement of the position. The most important thing is to gradually test the effect of the shadow.

Texturing effect:

Environment fog: The environment fog is a difficult problem in the scene. The environment fog is arranged in the last step before rendering. The parameters are also very complicated. After debugging for a long time, I also asked the teacher some questions, and finally found that the main thing is to adjust the height of the fog. The three parameters of distance and color are arranged to have an effect similar to the original painting.

How to Make a Sci-fi Spaceship with 3ds Max(2)
How to Make a Sci-fi Spaceship with 3ds Max(2)
Your private cloud rendering service provider, Fox Renderfarm, is still sharing with you the production of how to make a Sci-fi spaceship with 3ds max. Rendering The background production directly used a previous project and made some modifications according to the reference diagram. The lighting adopts the sunlight and skylight of V-Ray. When rendering, the spaceship and the background are rendered in layers, and the background does not require too high parameter settings. The final rendering of the background, The sky in the background is not directly rendered, but a sky map is directly synthesized in Photoshop. What needs attention is the color of the water surface. If the sky is blue, then the water, buildings, and especially the reflection-sensitive things in the scene must be changed to blue. After background synthesis, The last is the rendering and post-production of the main spaceship. The rendering settings of the spaceship are the same as those of the background. Several important points to note are, First of all, the material of the spaceship is a reflective material similar to car paint, so the layout of the environment is to better reflect the texture of the car paint. When I tried to render the car paint in the initial stage, it felt very fake, without texture, and the actual material is not necessarily the material. It is not adjusted properly, but it just ignores the influence of the environment on the reflective material. At the bottom of the spaceship, I made a "plate" whose function is to give a darker reflection to the bottom of the spaceship to achieve the effect of the virtual ground. The key point is to pay attention to the height, and remember not to exceed half of the spaceship. The final rendering effect, It can be seen that the background and the spaceship are too integrated. Next, I used a few basic tools to adjust the color of the entire scene. After adjusting the color, it can be seen that the sky contrast has been strengthened and the overall tone has been unified. Finally, add some small details: add lights.

How to Make a Sci-fi Spaceship with 3ds Max(1)
How to Make a Sci-fi Spaceship with 3ds Max(1)
Your private cloud rendering service provider, Fox Renderfarm, is sharing an article for you this time on how to make a fish-shaped spaceship with 3ds max. Introduction This work is inspired by spoons. One day, I saw the spoons when I was eating in the restaurant, I suddenly felt that the spoons turned upside down looked like some kind of fish, and some of them looked like a science fiction-style spaceship. Suddenly I wanted to make this inspiration into a spaceship that can travel in the sky and water. Modeling After returning home, I spent one night combining some handsome sea creatures, such as whales, sharks, etc. and drew this manuscript with a pencil. Later, I thought the shape looked good, and finally decided to make it into a model with 3ds Max. The next step is more challenging for me because it is very challenging to make a 2D concept map into a 3D model. In particular, the 2D concept map will only serve as a reference work, while other angles and details need to be found from references and other materials. The road to spaceship design has just begun. In the production, I constantly modify the details, such as changing the original single tail to a double tail. I also tried to add a co-pilot position next to the tail, but after adding it, it felt unreasonable. Later, the cockpit was changed to a jet engine compartment. Two red fuel tanks were added on both sides of the tail (although some people say they are like batteries)! All models are not very difficult, but they are constantly adjusting their shapes during the production process. But this may have something to do with the person who made it, and I like it very much from the angle in the picture below, the eyes look very imposing. Because I have previous experience in industrial design, the design of the spaceship engine is not too difficult for me. The final model is completed! As long as the overall shape and parts are reasonable, well, the overall shape looks streamlined and comfortable. Texturing When designing the concept map, I have already considered the material of the spaceship. First of all, the main body of the ship is made of car paint, which is very common in industrial styling, and it is not very difficult to make. The texture of the spaceship mainly uses the standard material of V-Ray, and then some blending. This part is mainly to add different materials and textures to the 1 and 2 masks in the mixed material. The important point is that the "Falloff" map is used in the mask, and the default color sorting of attenuation is white on black. Here you should use the invert button to reverse it and turn it into black on white. 1.The setting of "Material 1" is relatively simple. It is the color displayed in the dark part after the "Attenuation" mask, so the color is black (or a dark color in a certain color system, which is close to black). "Diffuse" is pure black and "Reflection" is pure white, which means 100% complete reflection. Pay attention to check Fresnel reflection. Keep the refraction options as default. 2." Material 2" is relatively complicated. The reason for saying this is because the material in Material 2 is the "Shellac" material. You should know that its function is to change the color, highlight, and Reflection of "Base Material" and “Shellac Material”, and mixed them by the value of "Shellac Color Blend". In fact, the settings of the two materials are almost the same, but it should be noted that the diffuse color of "Shellac Material" is the color of the car paint. For example, if you want the model to be yellow, then change it to yellow here. And the diffuse black of "Base Material" is an attenuation color, so that the material can richly reflect the contrast of different angles.

3ds Max Tutorial: A “Country Shop” Scene Production Sharing(2)
3ds Max Tutorial: A “Country Shop” Scene Production Sharing(2)
Continue the 3ds Max Tutorial: A "Country Shop" Scene Production Sharing(1), the NO.1 render farm, Fox Renderfarm still share with you the production to make a country shop with 3ds Max, ZBrush, Marvelous Designer, Substance Painter, Photoshop, and Substance Alchemist. Low polygon production The low polygon production uses the high polygon that was previously sculpted, mainly to make the model clean by reducing the lines. The cloth is made using Topogun, a topology tool. Topology is a simple but patient task. Topology is divided into two ways: First, you can use editing and adjustment tools to reduce the surface and the surface to get it. You can also use the automatic topology tool, and then adjust it manually (Method: Set the number of faces first and then click the Retopologize tool) . The low polygon should be as simple as possible, but the shape of the model should be kept unchanged. UVS After the low polygon production is completed, it is the work of UVS. Before UV work, you need to divide the smooth group first, and then cut the UVS seams according to the group. Seams will affect the final texture production, so try to hide the seams in places that are not obvious or corners when working. UVS work also needs to consider the size of the texture. Baking We need to match the high poly and low poly in 3ds Max. The edge silhouette must match and overlap, and then the high poly and low poly of the same part must be named and matched, and then the normals will be baked in Substance Painter. In order to get a better normal map, an average normal and a vertical normal will be baked out first, and then the interior of the vertical normal and the edges found on average will be retained in Substance Painter. Texturing When making textures, we give priority to making the overall color and then adding details. It is easier to add details on the basis. First, I separated several types of textures and distributed them according to the workload. Each person is responsible for several different things. When making, remember to start with the whole, don't be obsessed with the details, you can also communicate with other people and give each other suggestions. When the textures are almost the same, I will add sharpening to the top texture to make the details more obvious, that is, create a new layer and add a sharpening filter. The texture production of other models also uses the same method, first the whole and then the details. Grass production The grass did not use plants. Instead, some patches were created in 3ds Max and placed where needed. After the reference processing of the grass I was looking for, a transparent texture was placed on the patch. Rendering Now you can integrate all the finished models. Before integration, you need to organize all the models, textures, and file names. The final rendering used Marmoset Toolbag because after the HDR we used in Substance Painter was imported into Marmoset Toolbag, their effects would not differ too much. For the lighting part, we use three lights, one main light source has a warmer color tone, and two auxiliary light sources have a cooler color tone. Adjust the camera to enhance the contrast and test the final rendering effect while adjusting.
