Love your stuff! thanks for the info. You achieve surprising graphics using Unity which is great news.

is that images related to coc generals 2? zero hour ?

@Tristan: I studied computergrafics for 5 years. I'm making 3D art now since about half a year fulltime, but I had some experience before that. Its hard to focus on one thing, it took me half a year to understand most of the vegetation creation pipelines. For speeding up your workflow maybe spend a bit time with the megascans library. Making 3D vegetation starts from going outside for photoscanns to profiling your assets. Start with one thing and master this. @Maxime: The difference between my technique and Z-passing on distant objects is quiet the same. (- the higher vertex count) I would start using this at about 10-15m+. In this inner radius you are using (mostly high) cascaded shadows, the less the shader complexety in this areas, the less the shader instructions. When I started this project, the polycount was a bit to high. Now I found the best balance between a "lowpoly" mesh and the less possible overdraw. The conclusion of this technique is easily using a slightly higher vertex count on the mesh for reducing the quad overdraw and shader complexity. In matters visual quality a "high poly" plant will allways look better than a blade of grass on a plane.

R3DS::Wrap is a topology transfer tool. It allows to wrap existing topology around a 3D-scan or other highpoly model. It also includes pre-alignment, sculpting and texture baking features. As Wrap preserves vertex order and texture coordinates of original basemesh it can be used for creating morph targets of different facial expressions based on scans

Features:

Subset tool allows to work with any portion of the scan separatly. It makes possible to do fullbody wrapping step by step. Step-by-step approach is much faster and controllable than doing wrapping of entire basemesh at once.

The process is fairly straight forward:

  • Click Subset(Select) tool and select any portion of Template mesh. Use predifined polygroups in your OBJ file if needed.
  • Click Done button to confirm selection.Everything except selected polygons will dissapear.
  • Click Subset(Apply) to bring all the changes made to the subset back to original model.
  • Use Brush Tool to fix seams if there are some.

Brush tool gives a set of useful sculpting brushes to enhance final model. Brush tool support history (Ctrl + Z, Ctrl + Shift + Z). Resize brush using left mouse button and Ctrl key. The list of brushes includes:

Texture transfer tool transfers texture from scan to basemesh. New color extrapolation option was added since version 2.2.4
