Modeling a Blanket : 3ds max Tutorial

blanket 3ds max
Modeling a Blanket using 3ds max
Here’s a simple way to model a complex looking Blanket with creases and correctly mapped object which indeed looks harder than you think to model.

I’ve used the normal lofting technique to model it ..look at the shapes below and the path on which these shapes were lofted.

loft shapes

the shapes were drawn with simple Lines and further editing them to the curves that you see. Why 3 different shapes ? Well different parts of the blanket has different curves generated in real life…so with the loft option we have Path Parameters.
Path = 0.0   ,    Get Shape #1
Path  = 16.0 ,   Get Shape #2
Path  = 20.0 ,   Get Shape #3
Path = 80.0 ,    Get Shape #3
Path = 84.0 ,    Get Shape #2
Path = 100,      Get Shape#1

loft parameters

The below image shows you the placement of the shapes on the Path

loft position can adjust your shapes to get better looking creases which suite your scene.

The image below shows you how the mapping will look after texture is applied to it.

Multi-Pass Compositing on 3ds max Rendering

gnomon multipass

This week The Gnomon Workshop adds to its library of professional production technique dvds with a new title by instructor Tim Jones of Digital Domain. Focusing on the essentials of compositing render passes from a 3D scene, "Multi-Pass Compositing" is a valuable demonstration for 3ds Max users looking to understand and maximize the benefits of this time saving technique. Tim shows how to efficiently control lighting, color, ambient occlusion and more.

Compositing passes is a technique that has been used in visual effects long before the advent of 3ds Max and Fusion – the software used in the tutorial. Photographing passes allowed visual effects artists to isolate elements of a shot, like physical models and sets, and affect their look before combining them together in the final print of the shot.

Tim carefully explains his processes as he had in his other popular titles "Environment Creation for Production" and "Environment Lighting for Production." Like other tutorials in our library, you can purchase "Multi-Pass Compositing" as a DVD or Digital Download. See the DVD description below for more details.

3D Female Modeling : Making of Helena

3d female helena

Learn how to do 3D Female Modeling from 3DM3. The Artists inspiration behind Helena the Archer came from Korean online game artworks, where beautiful girls dressed in armor and carrying weapons. Of course he also added a little touch of his taste in this artwork. As for the falcon, I simply wanted to make a companion or a pet for her. The Artist used 3d Studio Max 9 for modeling, Deep Paint 3D and Photoshop for texturing and compositing , and also the Vray Rendering Engine for rendering the scene.

Making a Splash of Water from a Droplet : RealFlow Tutorial

water splash realflow

Learn how to make a perfect Crown Splash of Water with a Droplet falling on the Water Surface using RealFlow. The Splash Water Tutorial teaches you how to recreate a high-speed photograph of a water droplet falling into a larger body of water, controlling the simulation – within limits – to generate a classic crown-shaped splash. We will start by exploring the basics of fluid simulation, then refining the parameters that control the effect that we want to achieve.
