Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting the fbx, part of Creating a Stylized Wooden Crate Game Asset.
- Having finally finished the assembly of our crate,…we are at the stage now where we can begin…exporting the .fbx meshes that we are going…to use in our texturing package,…which, as already noted, will be…Substance Designer in this instance.…Now, you have heard correctly,…I did say meshes and not mesh.…If you remember, we did finish…the previous exercise with both the finished crate…and a single facade in our scene.…The reason for this, simply put,…is that when we bring our objects into Substance Designer,…we are going to want to see how…the texture is working on the full crate asset,…helping us to judge both repetition in the texture…as well as it's final quality.…
Now our single facade mesh can help greatly here,…Particularly with the baking out of resource maps,…such as ambient seclusion, for example.…You see, if we were to use our full asset here,…the slightly inter-penetrating pieces of geometry…that we have created, seeing as these objects…share exactly the same UV space,…would create all sorts of oddities.…
