Week 3

October 3, 2011 § Leave a comment

This week Allison and  I were unable to meet with Dr. Wolfe, however we did get together.  We showed each other the material we had reviewed in 3ds max over the past week.  Allison showed me some of 3ds max’s modeling tools including the primitives, convert to editable poly, tools to manipulate the edges and polygons as well as the various modifiers.  In return I showed Allison what I had figured out about skinning and setting bones; how to create and edit a skeleton and then make a mesh move with the bones.

I also showed Allison the stills I had taken of a model walking in a pants suit similar to the one that we will model for Paula that helps show where wrinkles form in dress pants. 

For the next week I am going to practice modeling and get a little more familiar with 3ds max.  Over the next few weeks Allison is going to try and find a pair of old pants that she can draw a grid on to use as a reference when we start modeling.
