Nice!

I've never heard of isolating the green channel of the normal map and using it as a paint layer. What effect does that create exactly?

WARNING They dont listen to their users as much as they like to say they do. Check their forums. Plenty of requests go unanswered. Their "To Do" list has been outdated. They lack staple features such as a Text Tool, Adjustment Layers, Channels, Layer Styling, Proper Cropping. Paintstorm cant even resize a photo correctly (It will always leave a border when resizes). You also run into square artifacts occasionally. There have also been several instances were paintstorm was detected as malware, once called out, the dev reuploads a clean version. This happened at least twice from forum reports and Virus Total. Aside from the very obvious lack of support and maintinence. The brush system is good. However a good brush engine will not replace the other basic features and functions paintstorm lacks. DO NOT expect support. This is definitely a homegrown app and it shows. If you want a versatile brush engine, clip studio or even krita is where its at.

Photogrammetry: Macro-environment in CRYENGINE

CG-artist Simon Majar shared some assets for an exclusive photogrammetry demo for CRYENGINE. A great opportunity to have a look at how this 3D scanning technology works.

The demo assets are absolutely free and available for download at CRYENGINE forums. The files feature a very detailed look at the scanned piece of environment and give some insights on the way the whole process works. Te detailed description of the scan is available in Simon’s official blog.

I used Agisoft Photoscan to make the model and textures. Medium settings, with my 8gb of ram, not possible to generate a really dense point cloud. I’ll try later with a more powerfull computer. From that model I generated two 8192px textures. The rest is easy, export and integrate to the CRYENGINE. What I didn’t do, and should have been done, is delete every lighting information in the textures. I’m still working on a proper way to do it. It’s quite complicated, and the best way to do it is capturing the environment to have an HDRI. But I don’t have the equipment yet, just a middle class camera.

As a result the demo has baked lighting. In the video the camera is actually not moving. Instead the level itself is turning around.

[…] haven’t had the pleasure to use photogrammetry to an extent to review it, but based on the work I have seen trough personal projects and in game […]
