- This is a T. rex,…a tyrannosaurus rex,…and it's a dinosaur.…This is the ancestor of a chicken.…Yeah, so whenever you go to a place…and have fried chicken,…remember, this is the ancestor of chickens.…But anyway. That's another story,…and we'll discuss biology at another point.…This is a very generous offer by Sebastien Florand.…
It actually comes with Cinema 4D.…It's part of the content browser.…One of the files that checks out Cmotion…this little fellow is animated in.…He's walking nicely.…Anyway. I will allow you to download this.…Actually, Sebastien said that I can offer it…to the users of lynda.com.…And what I've done in this case is,…I got rid of all the UV maps.…And yeah, and all the motion and all that.…
And I will create UV maps…so that this T. rex is paintable.…Let me delete this…and let me…get everything out.…And now we have four distinct models.…We have the teeth.…Now he doesn't have teeth.…But it's funny. Look at this.…Looks much more pleasant this way.…But anyway. Teeth, the body,…left eye, right eye.…
We are going to deal mostly with the body.…
