hi all, i'm attempting to start modeling, can anyone help me get started w/ software i need to get and use and how to use it? it would be great!
thx in advance, mrduh
Well, I didnt see anyone posting anything, so I thought I would lend a helping hand. Your best bet for a free modelling program, would be gmax, http://www.atitd.com/index.html. Gmax is the sister program to 3d studio max, so most of the tutorials out there on the net would apply. Several sites that are good for learing how to model are, http://www.fh-worms.de/~inf126/tutorials/lowpolymodeling/index.html, which teaches you how to model on the Unreal engine, but its the same damn thing with the model, so dont worry about it. The second tutorial is something that you may want to consider using its technique rather than the first(extruding edges rather than splines). The second is here, http://www.3dtotal.com/ffa/tutorials/max/joanofarc/head1.asp. This may seem irrelevant, but trust me, the technique can be applied to anything. If you have any questions, just post a reply.
So this will help me make my gun skins?:confused:
No, it wont, I meant those for modelling. But there are loads of tutorials for skinning too.
can u list a few sites thx:rock:
