Animation: VW Passat

here's a shot with the car
Old 12 December 2002   #2
I must say, this car has reached perfection. I scrutinized it in every pic on ur site and can't find anything wrong with it. I love car modeling and I am making you my new hero. Move over suurland...I really have only one question for you. How the hell do you deal with max's slowass viewports? When my car reaches 10,000 polys, it just slows down. And that's on a pentium 4 1.8 with 640 megs ram and geforce 2(also tested on geforce 4). Hope to see more of your models.

Your model is perfect, the animation is a bit too fast, but it's only a personal note, i'd choose another color and another background music, they remind me the Lewis' Maserati too much, anyway 5 stars from me

gimpgutter ...try to place over the modifier stack a meshselect or editmesh since 3dsmax 4 and 5 are seeing all objects as quad polygons, and our 3d video cards can only accelerate triangles And make some of your object bounding boxes Also if you have a geforce2 , you may try to emulate it to quadro (with softquadro)

ThirdEye_01 yes I know...I probably used the same HDRI as Lewis and Suurland

sweet wheels! that could be a car commercial!

I'd love to see what you could do with the Fishmobile...;-)

very nice, did you make it the same way as your tutorial, with the spline cage?
Old 12 December 2002   #9
Soljarag sorry I reply so late, I'm out of town
Yes, I started from a spline cage, and the rest is edit mesh/poly.

That's really amazing. I allready know your website (visited it a view weeks ago) and your cars are absolutely great!

Great work
but the front of the passat is a little bit to long i think (there where the vw logo is)
