LightWave 3D 8 Texturing (Wordware Game and Graphics by Leigh van der Byl

By Leigh van der Byl

Bought this e-book three yrs in the past. every little thing you must find out about texturing is in one book.
Dealing with UV maps, photoshop suggestions, hand painted and photograph map textures. upload existence and realism
to your characters via the tip of the ebook. the writer works within the so, you are studying from a professional.

Thanks Leigh van der Byl

Example text

You can find handles at endpoints and internal control points. Handles are essentially the tangency vector of spline points. Handles control the direction and weighting (weighting is sometimes also referred to as magnitude) of the tangency. You can dimension b o t h the angle and the weighting of the handle. The diamond shape on the arrow leader is the control for the direction only. The arrow head at the end of the leader controls weighting only. The dot at the very end of the arrow controls both direction and weight simultaneously.

Figure 3 . 7 shows the result of manipulating the tangency direction handles of a two-point spline. The quality of a curve is sometimes difficult to j u d g e visually, because it is a somewhat subjective measure, and especially if you have a background in engineering rather than graphic arts. O n e tool that can help you in this regard is the Curvature C o m b . Apply the Curvature C o m b to your J either from the RMB m e n u or from the Spline PropertyManager. In the RMB m e n u , it is called S h o w Curvature C o m b , while in the PropertyManager it is simply Show Curvature.

4 . T h e goal is to m a k e a rectangular hole with a hemi-spherical bottom. This can be accomplished b y using a combination of a cut-revolve and an extrude with the clumsy sketch as shown, or by simply cut-extruding to a hemi-spherical surface feature. FIGURE 2 . 4 Extra sketch elements indicate a possible need for a surface t e c h n i q u e T h e reason that the extra sketch elements indicate the need for a different technique is that these extra lines actually create geometry. T h e way this works is that the shape is created as defined by the extrude feature as a separate body, and then that body is either j o i n e d to or subtracted from the main body, depending on the feature type.
