OT. Retrieved objects from Fallout 3 and rendered it.

I finally thought seriously about getting stuff from a computer-game, import it into DAZ Studio and render it. I watched this tutorial at Youtube to see how they do it:

("How to extract and get 3D models fro Skyrim to 3DS max modify them")

It pretty much works the same way with Fallout 3, so that's how I got the power-armor and the helmet.

    Tali, from Mass Effect, without the frigging mask obscuring her face. The mesh doesn't have eye colour so I gave her creepy blue eyes.

    Very cool. I've seen some exporting into a program called Gmod that allows moving game models in a similar manner. It's interface is to use a series of controls in game. Tons of youtube videos on Gmod. Also Valve has released Source Film maker which includes many source game models. I wonder if it's possible to export Poser or Daz Studio items into the Source Film maker? Should be possible.... could be some interesting results. Valve's download is through Steam. I haven't tried it out because it's (free too) a 10 gig download (due to all the included models). Lots of TF2 videos showing what can be done with it.

    I got a notice from Lynda.com about some learning techniques, creating stuff for a game using Maya and Photoshop. Importing into the Unity3D engine, baking textures and so on. Is there anybody here with some experience using Unity3D? I have some experience using Valve's Source-engine, making maps for Counter Strike: Source, so I'm not a complete newbie.

    I have gone the other way and used rigged Unity figures in Carrara (not studio, need full fbx import) and also iClone
    Have Unity but too busy to mess with it much, Carrara rigging imports and low poly Daz figures, I cannot get V4 etc in dressed though, too high poly and I do not have decimator.
    still trying with Gmax import script and GTA San Andreas, no luck there and not prepared to buy Zmodeler full version to use game assets I cannot legally render in art anyway!

    I did ask some time back and am assured it is leagal as long as it is only for personal use, but any distribution would not be.

    Distribution of the mesh or the image being rendered? Technically, posting it here is distribution of an image. If we are allowed to post images then Joy:) I have a couple of meshes that have being laying around.

    Yes as I said I did check when the topic was first posted. And there was an image even then.

    There's a freebie program called NiffScope that allows you to extract game meshes from any of the Bethesda games... It can also convert to obj. format and export texture maps. It's one of the modding tools regularily mentioned in the modding community for the ElderScrolls Games and Fallout... It can also be used to import characters into the games from obj format... although I haven't got the know-how to set the figures up for game functionality...

    As for legaility... as noted above distribution wouldn't be legal of any meshes extracted from the game... but Bethesda also supports the modding community by including tools like the Garden of Eden Creation Kit, that allows you to make your own mods for the game that can be shared as freebies... of course you'd still have to make your own meshes for those mods and would have to legally have the right to use any purchased meshes in that manner...
