View Full Version : low poly gun In progress

04 April 2002, 02:41 PM
Well, to let you know, I'm 13, this is but my 4th 3d image, and first week with 3d rendering. I dont have a job or anything, and dont have good software. However, this model (a work in progess) of an AK-47 (Modeled in wings3d, rendered in bryce) is around 500 polygons, well, at least Bryce says that when I render, although I add them up in my modeling program to be about 200 polygons (perhaps bryce was counting background or something) Pretty high polygon count it shath be when its finished, but not too horribly high for some FPS's or something. Please critique!

Well, I mean, I have Bryce 5 trial edition, hehe, I dont have like, big money products like a ton of people. How can I fix these edges? (I'm guessing you mean like, at the end of the gun with the triangle type shouler thing.....) I'm fairly new to modeling, so...

Hey, no knocking wings. If you think the poly count inbryce is a bit off, in wings press "b" and select your object, it should now tell you the amount of poly's in the ,lower left corner. Gun looks nice.

Hmm...the 'b' thing wouldnt work for me. I just selected an object and wrote down the poly's for each object. I got around 450, which is strange, cause in Bryce its like, 800-1000. Dont get me wrong, I love wings. But I dont have as much as experience (a week) as other people and I dont have programs live Maya, 3dsmax, etc, etc. I made an animation, i'll post it on my site later if I can. I added a hollow in the main body for the the bullets to come out. I need to fix the triangles in the main body (causing a shadow) but I dont know what the heck they are!UNSMOOTHED:
