Join Adam Crespi for an in-depth discussion in this video Overview of the high-poly projection pipeline, part of Maya: Game Prop Creation.
In this video I'll look at the pipeline for a high poly to low poly bake or projection.…Right now, we can see I've got a normal map, actually a comparison of bump,…normal, and straight color on my table.…It looks really good in the boards, especially here with the normal map…where it's nice and soft.…However, the edges of the boards are still very crisp, and it's a little…disturbing that when we spin around this we can see that the top has a lot of…detail, but the boards are perfect, even though I've disturbed them slightly by…putting in some cracks.…
One of the things I can do is to look at a high poly model, taking the…original low poly based on a good edge flow, separating out the unwrap and…then modeling high poly elements.…Projecting them here in Maya and using the normal map to disturb the corners. To start,…I'm going to separate out some of the unwraps here.…One of the things we need to consider is if we're baking, do we have unique…unwraps or are we stacking.…I'll pick my table elements and hide the chairs temporarily and see how these layout.…
