View Full Version : 3ds Max combining with virtools

10-11-2010, 09:48 AM
I'm was wondering how to combine 3ds max and virtools. I'm actually learning 3ds Max and Virtools and i was thinking where could i find some tutorials about this 2 software.

My main problem is probably modeling characters, and i have some doubts, what do i have to do to create a character and then import to virtools, what specific things to do in 3ds max to import to virtools and start creating the operations to create some kind of a game.

Can somebody help me giving me some advices and tutorials?

sorry for some "dumb" questions, looking forward for some answers

Many Thanks, by the way, i discovered this forum today and i find this very interesting with people that knows many things about 3ds max.

Here are some useful tuts for making characters, don't forget that this is only technical aspect, if you want to create high quality characters, you need artistic knowledge behind it ;)

Low poly character model:

It's important to understand how low poly works before you get into normal mapping.
Scroll down this page 'til you find "character series" set of videos for low poly

I got started with this, which is a bit dated but great technique for facial loops:

Keep in mind this one is not meant for a videogame, but if you keep your polycount low you could easily use it in an engine. NOTE: The URL above is 3D total (no space)

first of all, i'm very glad for your answer. i find this tutorials really interesting.

i've been looking at this forum and i found many useful tutorials like yours! I'm very enthusiastic about this program, i've been working with it 3 years ago, but now i have to focus because i was working with 8 different softwares :/ it's difficult to mastered at one. and 3D is my "thing" :)

what about virtools? has anyone used it? or you prefer other software?

thanks ;)
