    Candy Bar Modeled with Subdivision

    Sure thing! I have some more sub-d tips for modeling common items. I have been doing it a long time with a variety of different programs. I came up with a few approaches that might be helpful. I sort of took what I knew and adapted it to FZ's toolset. When I get time, I will put a couple of them together.
  3. This is a quick study on how to model a candy bar wrapper with subdivision. It's a 2 page pdf. Sub-D Candy Bar.pdf

    Correct. Glad you figured it out.

    sub D help

    Thanks guys. I created a 2 page pdf of this and uploaded it to the "tutorial" section of the forum. "Candy Bar Modeled With Subdivision" I hope that FZ sees fit to add a symmetry tool in the future. It would cut the work it half.

    sorry for the double post. I thought it was too big. Anyways here's a final render as well.

    sub D help

    Here you go. I did it pretty fast, so I hope it's clear. If you get stuck let me know. It's not difficult once you understand the concept. Looks like I am going to have to upload it in 2 files due to the size. Here's pg 1

    sub D help

    Tech showed perhaps the most simple way to do it. My approach would require a few more steps and some additional geometry. The end result would be something a bit softer and a little more realistic. I should have time tomorrow to post a series of step by step series screenshots to get you started. Once you get the hang of it, you can tackle some more difficult shapes. Do you happen to have a better image of the wrapper? That would be helpful but not completely necessary. If you look in the "tutorial" section of this forum you will find a 3 part series I did on sub-d modeling a leather chair. It might be a bit more than you want to tackle now, but it's something you can play around with if you care to.

    I do this sort of thing all the time. If you need some more advanced help let me know.

    sub D help

    Sometimes I look back over old posts to pick up a tip or 2. When I found this one, I realized I never did get around to doing a sub d tray. So I gave it a go this morning. After a couple of false starts I was able to produce this model using nothing but the sub d tools. It's a clean mesh with no triangles, which I always try to avoid.

    VRay and Renderzone

    We are locked down tight. Trying to get anything resolved with IT takes weeks not days. My trial expired and they never did get back to me.

    VRay and Renderzone

    If I create a model in VRay and hand it off to someone who only has Renderzone will the mapping still work? I am supposing the answer is no.

    VRay and Renderzone

    Unfortunately I can't get the trial version to work due to our firewall blocking VRay trying to connect to their server. No worries. You told me what I need to know

    2d people

    Seems to me I tried it a while back and it came in with the maps screwed up. I will give it another. I seldom us them but it could be a handy option.

    How do you handle the mapping?

    The tabs along the top right aren't working either. The ones where you access your messages, profile, etc

  21. Mapping in C4D is a breeze. I also like it's sub-d modeling tools. Unfortunately, in my current position I am not allowed to use it.
  22. The entire "decal map" thing needs to go away. We should be able to apply any map in the same workspace, and see it real time without the need to render it. FZ also needs to support Photoshop layers.

    SubD mirror / symmetrical modeling

    Sub D modelers have a symmetry tool because it's the fastest way to work in that mode. In fact, every program I have ever used has one except FZ. My guess is it was omitted because of cost.

    Two questions

    I have my "ghost" turned off. It's annoying to be.

    SubD mirror / symmetrical modeling

    FZ does not have a symmetry tool as do other sud-d modelers. A glaring oversight. I have asked for this since sub-d was introduced.
