Example text

3 In the photo we are working with, there is a good level of contrast in the image; so we can use the magic wand tool. We need to keep the tolerance low, as the image is mainly green. This time, I have decided to use the magic wand to quickly remove chunks of the image. I then finished off by removing the areas I didn’t want by using the eraser to manually erase the final few stray pixels. I also adjusted the levels and hue and saturation on the final version before starting work on the diffuse texture.

I wanted to remove this. I started by creating a 512 × 512 image file. I then copied the source image into this file and scaled it to fit into the square texture page (CTRL + T). I then used the Lasso tool to create a selection around the area I wanted to retain. I then inverted the selection by going to Select > Inverse on the menu bar. I then deleted the highlighted pixels. In a few key strokes, a large chunk of the unwanted image was removed. For the remaining pixels around the leaves, we could either use the eraser, manually paint the pixels out, or we could use the magic wand tool to make pixel selections and delete them.

All rights reserved. 35 3ds Max Modeling for Games Before any modeling can begin, we need to gather a selection of palm tree references. This is standard practice for any professional artist when starting any new modeling task. Once we have a good selection, we will pick the best two or three pictures to use as our points of reference. The criteria we’re looking for in our key images are form, color, and texture. Don’t forget the palm fronds will need texture reference too! Don’t fall into the trap of modeling what you think the tree looks like – a lot of artists do this and generally produce poor-looking models.
