Haha! The beauty render is very striking, silly wow-elves gotta watch out now, Chandaal is in the house:buttrock:

Good work all the way until the end! (even thought I think the GoW render was just a tiny bit better than the final one).

Well done, you should place well. could have pusehd the pose with some emotion thought but the technical exicution is as good as it gets.

The thing I like about your work is you are honest to your characters.You respect the concept/the idea/the sketch. When the competition started, I bet albert that you won't make the concept for your character, that you'll ask someone(mac) to make the concept for ya. But not just you proved me wrong but you stayed true to your concept and it looks awsome!! What's more funny is the fact that you hardly draw!!! Samar, I think you are almost there to where you want to be.

Great work! Your idea for creating AO is impressive, but I have a question about the gw object importer. It did not come with any install directions. How do you get the importer to work?

08 August 2008, 05:16 AM
just take the gw_dle file and paste it in plugins(try stdplugs folder if this doesnt of these for sure) folder in the 3dsmax directory

I have been trying to duplicate this method of creating an AO map, but everytime I render the map, it is very dark (especially around the UV mapped parts of the mesh), and it looks nothing like the great Samarcbz's map. Does any one know what the problem might be?



08 August 2008, 08:44 AM
can you post the AO can be alot of things..but until i see the ao render i can be sure.

oh btw i and samarcbz stay together.hes on a vacation.

It appears that the AO map is detecting a light source. The map has a lot of shadowing on it, and it changes depending on the angle of the model. I thought AO did not require any lights in the scene. I will try and upload a pick of the map.

I figured out my problem with generating the map: I did not add a Mental Ray material to my high res mesh. Now, I have a new problem. I am getting black and white artifacts on the AO map. Is there a wat to fix this?

select al the faces of the lowpoly..that is the editpoly below the pojection modeifer(after you use the projection modifier in RendertoTexture) and press alt+H..this will hide the lowpoly and thus wont interfere in the baking process....then bake for clean result

Great Model, ur a real O.C.G with pyroclastic work flow.

hey do your model put into unreal entironment?(not Unreal Editor)

Hi SamarCBZ,

OMG, your work is truly awe inspiring! I can only hope to be as good as you are and your models give me the energy and will to strive for that, thank you!

Also, thanks for your tutorial for Ambient Occlusion baking! Although, I am having one small problem when rendering it out and thought you could share some insight on how to fix. I render it out fine, but the baked map shows the normals not softened like I have on the low and highpoly models. I have both high and low poly models using smoothing groups that look nothing like the end baked product, which have no smoothing groups at all and shows all the facets and everything. I have just taken it into photoshop for now and run a surface blur on it to suffice untill I find out how to fix it. Do you know what is causing this? Thanks in advance!
