    My Wacky FJ Ute wireframe.... how hard is it to get the mesh straight.... awefully hard!

    I started this model off using a cube.

    Stezza, I only watched half (gotta run) but it was excellent!!  Many thanks. yes

    Edit - watched it all.  Excellent choice for a tutorial.  Pretty clear, even without narration.  I gained a lot just from watching your workflow.

    Actually, ZERO per cent of it was boring. smiley

    I still think you could be a PA, selling tutorials amd models.  That FJ Ute is ridiculous!  So many freaking curves...

    Great video, @Stezza.  Thank you!  Awesome model.  I always forget about the deformer menu in the vertex modeler.  Great tip.

    Question - although not necessary if a procedural shader is being applied, but any thoughts on best approach to UVmapping the treads if that sort of detail is desired?

    Excellent tutorial Stezza, added it to my Carrara tutorials folder !!!

  • StezzaStezza Posts: 6,136

    thanks for the comments.. glad it came across fairly simple like and easy to follow yes

    @Diomede I don't like Carrara's UV mapper so when I do need it done I usually export the model and import into UVMapper and go from there... I find that the quickest and easiest wink

    Very cool.  The M4 image makes me think of animation.  Gliders can work well since they move smoothly without propellers, etc.  Here's a 1 minute glider story I did a few years ago.

    Another beautiful model, Stezza.

    And a really fun animation, SteveK!  Arrrrrrr!

    Thanks.  I think I mentioned somewhere back there that I had a mocap with M4 jumping and grabbing onto a passing air vehicle, and finally decided to try it in the "Jump" challenge at Carrarators.  Took a lot of fiddling in the timeline to get it to work, but it was interesting.

    Thanks for the model, Stezza.  Very nice, but it also made me realize that your use of shaders in this render is just masterful.

    Thanks UB

    the reason I left it shaderless was so that if anyone used it they could experiment with shaders and create their own...  a masterful plan I thought lol

    I still have nightmares from the old Micro$oft paperclip, and that was what, 20 years ago?
