Event description

Description

Learn the complete pipeline for creating a AAA game asset in one day, with no prior 3D experience needed!

This workshop is aimed at beginners as well as intermediate users looking to pickup new tricks. We'll be de-mystifying the 3D process through a combination of theory and practice while creating a 3D model from start to finish. We'll cover the fundamentals of creating 3D assets for games, tips for speeding up workflow and some tricks during the texturing phase to make your models pop.

And of course, the asset we'll be making is a realistic version of the Hylian shield! (only the battered shield in the pic, not the background elements!)

Topics covered:
- Fundamentals of Blender and Substance Painter programs
- Base mesh creation
- High poly modelling
- Sculpting details
- UV unwrapping
- Texturing

Required software:
- Blender 2.78c (free at www.blender.org)
- Substance Painter 2.6 (free 30-day trial available at www.allegorithmic.com)

Required gear:
- Laptop + power bar (we have loaners if yours isn't powerful enough, see below!)
- Mouse (mousepad also recommended)

Laptop loans
The Chinook Microsoft Store has some amazing laptops available for loan during the workshop (ASUS ROG G752 laptops)! 3D work typically requires a decent computer, so I highly recommend you use one if your laptop is on the lower end of the scale (you still need to bring a mouse!). There are 12 available for loaning out of the 14 seats for this workshop, so I ask that if you already have a good laptop that you bring that along instead.
