In this 3-part tutorial, we look at how to get subdivision levels back using two main techniques. We utilise tools such as ReMesh All and ProjectAll and also look at Zspheres and topology in conjunction with Decimation Master. Finally we explore the ZProject Brush together with masking.
BadKing has been steadily growing over the last year but still has a long way to go, which is why we have introduced our Reward System by sharing the ‘Embed Code’ and ‘Share Link’ on the right.
In order for the site to grow we need to start offsetting some of the bandwidth and labour costs required to run the site. Ways to support the site include Purchasing Items from the product section, making a donation via PayPal, purchasing Download Points or simply spreading the word.
In this introduction, we look at the overall scope of our project and briefly look at some of the topics that will be covered in this 3-part tutorial. I also provide details regarding a free downloadable model of a treasure_chest that can be utilised during the series.
In Chapter 1, we discuss subdivision levels and reasons for using them. We look at ReMesh All together with ProjectAll and possible problems and solutions. We also look at merging layers together and retaining their subdivision levels.
In Chapter 2, we examine Decimation Master and ways to utilise it to create low poly mesh. We revisit Zsphere topology and look at Projection. We also explore ways to fix problems with holes that may occur when using topology.
In Chapter 3, we look at ZProject Brush and possible issues when using it. We also utilise Polish Crisp Edges to smooth our model. Finally, we explore the benefits of using masking in conjunction with ProjectAll.
