Hi guys!

Been surfing around the net and suddly got an idea to make a walkthrough making a racetrack.
Idea of the video is not exactly showing HOW to do but more of how to THINK.

Good stuff. The detail in particular seemed nice and simple, yet effective.

Is there a surface tool in 3DS Max for smoothing? I can see that being very useful.

Wow really simple and clean tutorial cheers mikkot. I really like the way you created the details.

Hi there!

Thanks guys for the positive feedback. Nice to hear that you people like it.

About suface tool in MAX im not sure about it totally but you can use relax/smooth vertexes - just select the vertexes you want to get smoothed / relaxed and apply it. That should be in MAX. Works the same way but you loose the "paint" feel. If there is someone using MAX maby could make a post here?

Cheers all!

I agree with all the comments so far, especially about the pixel wipes. Very simple ideas to quickly produce a complex track. I'd never really sat down and puzzled it out, but I often wondered about techniques for producing things like roads and city streets.

Hi again!

Thanks for input.

There are couple of otherways doing the polygons, depending how exact you want the polygons created. But the way i did was a approximartion but its good enough.

about pixel wipes, hopefully your eyes will survive... ;)
