Hey guys, I was wondering what your technique is when doing camera mapping,

-do you first start in 3D and than paint over it in photoshop or vicaversa?

-how do you merge two camera projection patches together? (with the transparancy map of the patch? )

thanks in advance :)

well I first do the rough 3D modelling and later paint over it, in photoshop, I use 3ds max qwith camera per pixel maps and materials that allow me to put several paintings or camera pejections in a single geometry

none of the tutorials I mentioned does more than one camera projection on an object. And Chris's dvd also stayed with one camera :)

[edit] this thread sums up pretty much what I needed to know
