View Full Version : May June rigging challenge is a GO

05 May 2008, 09:59 PM
Ok, so here we go again.
This challenge is a bit more complex than the previous ones, as you will be creating a realistic eye setup
1 eye model, and 3 different resolution sockets..low, med and insane

you job is to rig the eye and get realistic motion around the up/down motion, everything.

the different resolutions are so you can do it on the med res if you want and then use a displacement (NOT A NORMAL MAP, MUST BE DISPLACED) to the high res

cool, sounds like fun

downloaded. i will start today.


05 May 2008, 02:04 PM
Good idea! I`ll try to contribute!:wip:
(Please god give me time to participate)

The objs don`t seem to be powers of each other face count wise. So is it part of the challenge to create decent displacement maps for them anyway?

05 May 2008, 04:50 PM
they should be, they were all created and exported from mudBox

One thing I forgot to mention, you are allowed to recreate the Eye Geo itself, but not the faces.


05 May 2008, 05:49 PM
I re-downloaded the file, but still the medium face count doesn`t seem to be a power of the low res. There seems to be a face missing on the nose. Please check the image
I tried to load the high res onto the medium res in zbrush, but that didn`t work so far : (
Any hints ? TIA
EDIT: I don`t have access to mudbox, so I can not check it there

hmmm, I will have to have the modeler re-export them

or you can fix it yourselves, as every package has a way to patch a polygon


05 May 2008, 05:53 PM

Can we delete the faces in the back of the eye and make a socket hole? Also I see that the model is not symmetric. Is it a part of challenge or we have to just deal with it?

05 May 2008, 07:15 PM
yes to both

you can do what you have to to make it work, other than changing the topology of the model


05 May 2008, 01:52 PM
That's great. Thanks.

05 May 2008, 09:50 AM
