Join Adam Crespi for an in-depth discussion in this video Preparing for a smooth export to Mudbox, part of Maya: Game Prop Creation.
In this video I'll look at exporting from Maya across to Mudbox, and I'll look…at a couple of ways to do this.…It depends on the object that we are dealing with and the qualities we want to come across.…I've modeled in a Concrete, or Jersey Barrier, like we see alongside the freeways.…These are very common and exist by the thousands in the landscape.…It's a great object to have in a game as we can use these as a fence.…If we're dealing in vehicles we can redirect the player, herding them along the…path we want them to go.…This one is low poly, as we can see in the Heads-Up Display I've got 14 faces or…28 tris, it's about as low as we can get, and I've left the bottom in case we…need to tip these over. I've unwrapped this.…
I'll checkout what the UV Editor looks like, and as you can see I've got one…large shell, this is the top right here and the sides splay out around it.…There is the bottom, so when I paint I've got one seam down here at a logical…corner where the side and the bottom meet.…The ends are off to the side, and I've scaled things as big as I can.…
