Hi

I haven't used Max since v 2, so I'm not too good at it. I wouldn't mind helping out with modelling etc. It would be a good chance to get my max skills up to scratch.

Let me know what happens

Thats fine there must be a way to convert your software files to Max and vice versa.
Also i have got a friend who can help so that makes 3 of us so far if your still interested?
Im working on a story line so we will know what kind of characters we will need if you can think of a theme we can go for please give me some ideas as it would help alot (sci-fi/comedy/horror-ish etc.)
But if you want you can email or if you have a website you could put some images up of some basic characters you do and i can see what your designs consist of and think of a story to go with it.

Thanks for your reply.
Regards.

Cool, If you look at the brainstorming for a mascot thread, there's a WIP robot I'm doing. I'll start using Max if this gets under way, just may be a little slow to get going. Ummm... other character, really I got nothing finished. I'm working on a character with Fireman at the moment, textureing my first ever person, done Zool from the old Amiga game in 3D. Done a few cars.

What sort of poly count are you looking at? High, low, Sub Div Surfaces ok?

Let me know ok?

Thats fine you can use as many polys as you want just do it the way you can do best i dont mind at all, im putting up a character right now that im working on im looking for a 2d look...like ghost in the shell/akira look for this one i dont want anything too detailed but the main thing is making it usable for animation like the side wiggle thingy that south park uses basically, im glad i have got some enthusiastic replies im looking forward to working with you people and see what we can come up with.
I think if we all do at least one character each then we could easily write a script based on the characters we make cause im no good at writing a good story without something to go off on.
well my image is up its on my website here http://jaxx.8k.com check it out and see what you think...
Hope to hear from you all soon.
Regards.

Asap the sooner the better iv already started an anime type character and thought about what kind of sets n props we can do first we need some characters so as soon as we get enough we can then start the story then the sets and props and finally animating them, will XSI convert into max files? Just to make it easier on you unless you dont mind seting up Max?
Regards.

Unfortunately XSI does not export ot .max files, but I can export to .obj files. I thin 3D scenery or objects would be better as it would give us the ability to do interesting things with the camera.

Thats good as i can import .obj into max yeah 3d scenery is better but also harder so if your up for it so am i!
Also i looked at your robot and i really like the shader you used could you tell me how you did it please? Im creating a robot for animation and would like the shader you used.

Hi

There is no shader used on the robot, just a lambert material.
