Explore the world of modeling and texturing game props and assets, from tools to furniture, in Autodesk Maya.
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Adam Crespi, and welcome to Creating Game Props in Maya. In this course, we'll look at modeling props for games. We'll start with a good, low-poly workflow and explore unwrapping and stacking UVs. We'll look at ways to paint textures from scratch and apply them both as a texture sheet and unique textures. We'll explore digital sculpting in our pipeline and look at the best way to bake out ambient occlusion in normal maps. Finally, we'll look at importing into Unity, taking our props into a game engine and seeing how they work in light as we run around.
We'll be following all these features plus plenty of other tools and techniques. Now let's get started creating some game props in Maya.
