Re: Mod Project: Zombie Holocaust

Here is a first impression on a female Zombie: Using the base mesh i sculpted in lots of anatomical details, since its all about some very old zombies (about few years) it is interesting to think haw the would look like. My idea is to create this one as a rather "younger" female zombie, so she is no...

Re: Mod Project: Zombie Holocaust

Hehe the image is only a fast wrap up, its not even started, but i think specific shader could work very promising. Since my thesis will have realtime shader as main part, i want to try out as much as possible. I found out that a realtime Subsurface scatter shader seems to be very simple (basically ...

Re: Mod Project: Zombie Holocaust

I researched for some more up-to-date render techniques, as stencil shadows are not really popular anymore due to their poly based nature. Shadowmapping seems to be less accurate but much faster and versatile for arbitrary geometry and post effects. So i found an interesting pdf (again :) ) regardin...

Re: FMX 08 Event

Jep its always in Stuttgart, every year around may and for 4 days. Only flaw is maybe the price for "ordinary" people, which is pretty high for full access, students pay a very low price (50 bucks)... On the other side this prevents non-business people or kids to show up, so its a very nice and encl...

I decided to go for some "real" look, and i wanted a more moody story, most of my other students decided to do more fun stuff, comic look etc. Im not really satisfied with the short, because -it starts and ends not qu...

Hi Sindwiller It looks like your alpha is not correct set. You need a soft transition not a clipped alpha (that is mainly used for stencil out purpose like plants), so the one on your shot looks clipped at some range. Im currrently not uptodate for the mat prefixes to get soft alpha blending but it ...
