Pirate flag designs can be super-awesome! Apply what you've learned so far by making an amazing photorealistic pirate flag in this challenge. Make your simulations as realistic as possible by looking at references, modeling the flag using Maya Sculpting tools, and setting up the simulation. Challenge yourself to make an awesome pirate flag.
- [Instructor] Pirates are awesome.…And pirate's flag are super awesome.…This is a challenge.…You have to create the most awesome pirate flag ever.…So in this challenge you will have to…reapply what you've learned.…Creating a simple cloth object…should be something you could do blindfolded.…What you will discover is that simple object can have…a lot of detail,…and that making an asset for FX and for FX movie…can be extremely detailed and is extremely difficult…to be able to match the plate.…
So the first step that you will have to do…is to go get a coffee,…and to look at the reference video for a little while.…I proposition you to look at the level of detail.…So, how many details you have,…how this flag is actually…taking the wind and behaving and folding,…and the other thing will be in motions.…You have to check the range of motion,…the speed of motion as well,…of the different parts of the flag.…
We call that fold frequencies.…So this first step is about analyzing and really…targeting what you will do and what you will need.…
