When texturing game assets, often times there are several challenges to overcome and variables to consider. In this tutorial, we will talk about some of these as we walk through texturing a character for the current generation of game consoles.

After setting up our MARI project, we?ll get started painting the diffuse color map for our character. Using a combination of image projection and painting, we?ll focus first on his clothing but eventually move to the other areas of the character including his skin, hair and a pass of dirt to make our character feel more natural. After finishing off the color map, we?ll move on and learn how we can quickly create a specular map for our character by repurposing many of our color textures.To wrap this course up, we will learn how to paint a transparency map that can be used to mask portions of the hair geometry for our game character.

After finishing this course, you will not only have a fully textured game character but you?ll also have a good idea how to overcome many of the challenges that come with this type of project.

What you will learn
In this series of tutorials I’ll teach you how get started modeling precast concrete structures in
Revit 2014.

We’ll begin by getting our grids, levels and reference planes in place. Once we’ve set the stage for
the project, we’ll begin placing foundations and columns. You’ll learn how to use the mirror and
copy tools to speed up your modeling work flow and reduce some of the complexity involved in
modeling structures. We’ll explore how to accurately place corbels and beams at the right
elevations. And finally, we’ll learn how incorporate a double-T flooring system into our building

With these tools, tips and strategies you’ll be able model precast structures of your own in no
