Join Adam Crespi for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Sculpt Geometry tool and soft selection to add dents, part of Maya: Game Prop Creation.
In this video I'll show how to use the Sculpt Geometry tool and some soft…selection to push and pull on those boards.…I'm going to bevel the corners of this last one, but it's going to give me some minor issues.…The reason is I've got some subdivision going on here that has some pretty…good arching in it. What I need to do is to straighten that out.…I'll press F10 for edge and double-click on one of these edge loops.…Now that I've subdivided it it's restored this loop structure.…I am going to scale this edge loop down on the Z axis straightening it out and…seeing if there are any others that need a little attention.…
It looks pretty good all the way along.…Now that I've gotten rid of some of the major zigginess, we'll call it, this…should bevel a little bit easier.…I will double-click on another loop and scale this one as well, because it's…a little too arched.…It's okay to get in there and alter that geometry just a bit.…Moving in scaling edge loops that look maybe a little too pointy in places,…because that will affect the bevels.…
