Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Looking at the models, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
Let's first take a look at our models, here. We have two main spaceships here;…our main good guys spaceship, and then we are attacked by a fleet of bad guys…spaceships, here. And, both of these phenomenal models were created by the artist,…Christopher Kuhn. And, he's extremely talented. He actually has this little e-book…on Amazon about Building Your Own Rocket Bike in Blender, and if you are just…interested, it's pretty cool.…Extremely talented guy, so I thank you for providing those models for us, here.…
Now, I could have easily done all of this on one layer of Element; initially,…that's how I set it up.…But then I started realizing that I really want to be able to control the…aliasing, and a lot of other properties of these layers, independently, so I did…separate the planet, which is an Element object, and these two different ships…into each of their own 3D layers.…Now, that's presented a few challenges. Let's go ahead and select the Element…good guys layer, then go ahead and click the Scene Setup button.…
