'3D Studio Max'

'Creating a Weighted Companion using 3ds Max'

by Travis Williams

Software Used :

3ds Max

An in-depth tutorial about how to create the Weighted Companion cube featured in Valveā€™s game Portal using Autodesk 3D Studio Max.

Using a series of techniques I demonstrate how to model, unwrap and texture the Weighted Companion cube resulting in a Low-Poly but high quality model.

This tutorial is aimed at beginners, but I would encourage graphic artists of any level to watch as you may learn something new.

This tutorial is for training and educational purposes only. Please do not reproduce without written permission.

"Mirroring Morphtargets without plugins in 3ds Max" by Sigmundur Mossi G.son
This tutorial will explain in a few easy steps how I mirror my Morphtargets. This is a method I recently stumbled
upon while working in Maya, and I haven't seen any tutorials regarding how to do this in Max. So, without claiming
to be the inventor of this method, I'm more merely translating between programs.

I have been unable to see these embedded QT videos... I've tried DLing them directly and get just an image.. Downloand links used to be put up on these tutorials and I was able to watch from those. Please start putting them back with the videos. I'm sure they're good tuts and I'd like to see them.

I have not been able to watch these either. There is a non-QT version on my website (see above link) which should load just fine.
