Thumbs down You saved YET ANOTHER day!

Well, I just love your new avatar which is really cool (although I actually liked the old one too), but the work you're doing for us with your dummies series just R.O.C.K! 'Cause that's what I am at the moment... texturing dummie I mean

Many thanks, just where would we be without your knowledge and expertise?!

Anyho, any chances of obtaining these tuts in more compact format (as you did with your first ones), like in RTF format or something? Any chance I missed that same question earlier in the thread?

Great tuts... i do have a few questions though
since im a total newbie at anything 3d.
When making these textures I noticed
that if i leave the layers as is in Photoshop
and apply them to the color map in Maya
I get transparency that I never set.

So therefore, with all the different layers
in your photoshop image, save each
layer out as an individual image? How do you
go about saving all those layers for use in your
3d app?

What file type you mostly use when saving these
images, Tiff,JPG, BMP?? IF saved as a tiff
do you save the layers or do you compress them
(that is if you dont save them as individual images).

Please help a texturing newb...thnx

Well, I'm not a Maya user and can't really comment on that problem. A screen grab would help. I can imagine, though, that Maya's reading the transparency of a layer or an alpha channel that may be set. I'd field it, but I need to see a render and the iamge you're using.

As for the individual layers, try turning the layers on and off for the right image you want, then go to File and 'Save as a Copy'.

ok, thanks a lot for your contribution!!

I am a Max user, and trying to grasp the subtleties of proper texturing... The thing that bugs me the most in the absence of a reflectivity map. If you put an image in the reflection slot, max puts this image as wich is being reflected on the object. Therefore, there is no direct control over reflectivity.

What do you max users do to overcome this?? I cant believe there is no way of showing max how to use a reflectivity map...

I like Maya'S interface, where the reflectivity and the reflecting maps are clearly and independently controllable.

Specular in that sense would mean it is also affected by reflection from surrounding areas that would increase the potential mass of light within the degree it is captured on the surface.. due to the atomic reconstruction inherited by the individual rays of light within a beam.. ..so it makes me feel that way...
lol =)
