I know that time is passing and I still have not shown you the new Crash but do not worry, it’s coming soon. We had some unexpected events in our lives, but Mac assured me that he had finished adjusting. So I could start animating it as soon as next week. →
I know I promised you an article on the new model Crash quickly but it’s been longer than expected. After several different versions and changes, we finally completed the 3D model.
MacGivre is about to unfold the UV and texture the model at a time when I speak. →
As promised, the new 3D model of the mask Aku Aku and this time, textured and animated! Of course, the animations are simple tests but allow to have an idea of what look like expressions of “face”.
Crash, there was a small inconvenience. →
I do not know about you but I have always found it odd that Crash will not have more fur than that. Yet a bandicoot is really furry! So I found a small plugin called Neofur for adding fur, hair and even create grass with very little stress and much ease. →
After a day of rest (no I don’t work on Sunday … almost not … Well ok I kinda worked but shhh!), I decided to make some screenshots for your enjoyment. The videos… it’s good! But images without pixelation… it’s always better! →
So I thought to be limited by the Unreal Engine, I realize again that this engine is amazing and resourceful. Unlike the CryEngine that prevented me from doing many things or in any case easily, that I discovered the ability to animate an inert object and without skeleton but mostly without any technical constraint. →
A little animation! Certainly Crash is still playable but I work hard on animations, so see if there are bugs and how to fix them. I also had fun test some opportunities and I must admit that the Unreal Engine is great in terms of managing animations. →
A little video to show what Unreal Engine is capable at rendering. For me it’s a real pleasure to work with even though I still struggle with the interface. But when I see how easy it is to create materials worthy of the name, it leaves me dreamer! →
