[Tutorial] Timu Sumisu's modeling tutorial!
« on: 2009-08-06 02:35:10 »
Hello all!

I am working on a video tutorial series covering the creation of custom models for FF7 PC. This is for all of you who wish to learn.

For those aiding me in updating the current models, this will help for both technique and style direction.

Streaming:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzPk91xmtNo

Direct:
http://www.4shared.com/file/123227366/a7f3df8b/tutorial.html

Full version with audio commentary and explanations

Please excuse the poor humor and rambliness in this video.. I was kind of sick while recording, but feel free to enjoy and learn from it!


- Timu

Its Blender download it here http://www.blender.org/download/get-blender/

You will also need Python 2.6.2 http://www.python.org/download/ (The Higher Version Python 3.1 does not work correctly)

Both are completely free as they are open-source

3ds is the export format of 3ds max, blender can import/export that format, but the export doesnt include uv maps. so export obj and then convert that to 3ds in ... biturn? i think.

is that joining two objects in blender?

make sure your in object mode (tab toggles it) and if it messes up reselect the objects u want to combine, by shift rightclicking. then ctrl j to combine them into one mesh

note: to do this backward in edit mode, select the part you want to separate, and press p, then a little menu pops up... i think u just clikc selection or something like that.
