View Full Version : Modeling: posed or standard

06 June 2004, 08:58 AM
Hi all!

Just had a quick question. When you model something, which will be exclusively used as a still, do you model the character in the desired pose, or do you model it in the standard pose(standing, arms out etc.)?
I was wondering, because when you model it already posed, it would be a lot harder to get the proportions and the shapes right. But if you model it in the desired pose, you'd probably have to rig it, which causes a lot more work and probably undesired deformations.
