tutorial: fixing mirrored normal map seams

I think you're using unsigned normal maps, which for your engine means a 128 color is considered a non-bent normal (pointing straight up on X/red). Here's a quote from one of our graphics programmers: Signed normal maps are useful for helping to hide tangent space seams that exist because of mirroring. Such a seam can only be hidden if the normals on either side of the seam are not bent along the mirrored axis. Ultimately, this means that 0 must be represented in the unsigned normal map as 127.5, but unfortunately the normal map can only store integers. Signed normal maps do not magically cause all tangent seams to vanish, but they do make it possible that some mirror seams may be hidden. With an unsigned normal map the seam is visible despite the fact that the normal map is flat. The problem is that there is no way to represent 0 in the [-1, 1] range in an unsigned texture.

It's suitable for both realtime and production. Additional Info: aa_stonePlacementTools 1.0 for 3dStudio Max this script collects some utilities for the creation of stone walls, stone pavements and an irregular stone pattern to simulate both walls and floors. the script automatically bakes normal maps, AO maps and height maps for realtime use. the images from the video are rendering of some script-generated patterns, without any material, only postproduction and compositing. the script is now available for download!

3D Studio Max -> Быстрая ретопология, тряпичных поверхностей.

Урок в основном больше годится для тех людей которые моделят одежду, работают с тканью и часто используют такой модификатор как "Garment maker". Многим известно, какая получается геометрия при его использовании и как тяжело с ней в дальнейшем работать, с ней очень плохо работает подификатор Meshsmooth, и программы Mudbox, Zbrush и сама сетка выглядит не красиво, так как полностью состоит из треугольников. Я придумал достаточно не типичный, но эффективный способ её ретопологии.

TexTools. CGPeers. Polycount Wiki. View topic - Tutorial; Brick Arch (Baking Multiple Maps in 3dsmax) This tutorial will show you how to build a brick arch and then bake diffuse and normal maps from a high poly model using the projection modifier. Baking multiple maps using the Projection Modifier in 3dsmax8 by Michael Bartlett Introduction.In this tutorial you will learn how to produce diffuse maps and normal maps in 3dsmax using the projection modifier.

As an example I’ll show you how to make a simple brick archway. I hope I can explain this in a simple way, as it’s really quite a simple technique. In fact I wouldn’t call this an advance tutorial at all but it does require some modeling skill as well as a lot of time if you wish to extend this tutorial into your own project and add more detail to the mesh, which I hope you do. 1.
