Simple test animation created in Maya
Funny, modo ships with a seahorse as its tutorial package. I’ll have to post my test results with it someday.
Never tried modo.
FYI: this was not a tut model – made it myself (not that it’s particularly complex). I was very happy with the texturing though.
Nice. You’re right the texture is very nice. Procedurals or mapping?
The color was mapped. I don’t recall whether I used procedural or image for the bump map. I think a mix of both, then baked into one…
I do so love baking! Before we had color, bump, lighting etc through baking good texture work was incredibly time consuming (really good still is) and costly for animation. Baking opened up so much more possibility.
