Im not sure how many of you have seen this, but I saw this and just couldn't resist posting it here... Video Trace
I mean seriously, Would the devs be able to use something like this or what? Theres an obvious amount of work that went into the finished model, but still, would it be easier this way, or still too much hassle?
edit: here's the site
WOW!!! That was cool!
I haven't even watched the whole thing yet and already I'm thinking that the devs need to get one of these things. Seriously, I've never modeled in my life and I'm sure I could pump out some awesome stuff with that thing.
Aha my thread is on topic!
So why only two posts? seriously I thought there would be some devs in here drooling over the thought of constructing tanks/certain well known bridge towns based on videos.
meh. I guess theyr'e not interested?
It looks very cool but I wouldn't want to know the price of such a program. Especially with 3DS max, arguably the standard for video-game 3D modeling, going for 5000 CAN/US$(that's if you want to sell your models, you'd have to pay this much otherwise there's student versions)... Also modelers don't want to have massive changes to their software; most 3D modeling is virtually the same but can still take a while to learn when changing between programs. This just seems a whole other level plus this might be a lot more oriented for movies and larger studios...once again price!
