Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Replicating the objects, part of Element 3D Essential Training (2013).
The Particle Replicator in Element really came in handy when I was working on…this project, and in kind of different ways that I didn't plan on. For example,…when I got this robot model, it didn't really have any eyes; there was just kind…of, like, these empty cavities.…As a matter of fact, if we go into the Scene Setup of Element, and click on the…Element layer, this is very simple project.…There is really just basically this one instance of Element, and then lights,…cameras, color correction. That's it.…So, click on the Scene Setup button, and we can scroll down here, click on the…humanoid character, and I'll zoom out with my wheel here.…
Now, we could see that really, it's an armless torso; that's all it is.…There are some cool spikes that I really wanted to use, but just really just…didn't fit for this project.…But really cool model, but nothing on the insides.…So, you see the eyes are hollow there. I could turn on the Environment, so you…could see a little bit more clearly. Just hollow eyes, which didn't really work for this.…
