Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding cylinders for the front towers, part of Digital Matte Painting Essentials 5: Camera Projection in Maya.
…In the fixing two common projection problems…video, I showed you the easy way to…stop camera projections from projecting onto the backsides…of rough geometry, by just deleting the backfaces.…That works, but in another I'll show you now…produces much better results, but it's more time consuming.…In this lesson, we'll replace the very…rough geometry on the two front towers with…more refine geometry. The more refined your geometry is, that is…the closer it matches your actual object, the better the projections will work.…
The worst area in our castle right now is this top set of towers.…Very inaccurately represented by this box. Let's fix that first.…To do that, you'll want to work in two views.…First, select the Channel box rather than the Attribute Editor.…That'll give you more room for the viewers.…Go over to the left edge of the…interface and you'll see several prebuilt viewer setups.…Find the button that has two views on it.…Mine is partially hidden since I'm recording at a smaller size.…
But click on any of them that show the interface split in half.…
