Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Putting the nails in place, part of Game Asset Creation: Stylized Wooden Crate.
- [Voiceover] For the start of this exercise,…I've gone back to an earlier version of our Start scene.…So, from before we started hacking into our nail model.…Because, what we want to do now…is start duplicating and placing it…around our crate facade, here.…And before we instance copy the nail though,…and start putting it into place,…we're just going to select it,…come over to the Modifier List,…and type Smooth.…As what I want to do is apply a Smooth Modifier,…put a check in the Auto Smooth option,…and set the Threshold to a value of 35.…
This will give us a nice smooth surface…on the top of our nail…whilst leaving the really distinctive edge…fastening around the sides, in tact.…Again, this is an artistic choice…so you can apply, or not apply any smoothing that you wish.…With that done, let's, with our nail selected,…press W to engage the move tool,…and then hold down the Shift key…and slide this off to one side.…We're going to choose Instance, here…and then hold down the Control key…to select our second nail.…
Meaning, we now have both nails selected.…
