Well, the point is, high poly-counts are bad news. Lower polygon counts keep computers running quickly and the project rendering faster. When using polygon modelers, good sketches and storyboards become invaluable in planning where the extra polygons are needed, and where to leave them out. Spline-Based Modelers and NURBS The technical explanations of splines are that they are a sequence of three-dimensional vertices that are connected by lines. The links between the vertices are sometimes referred to as interpolation.
16). Now, paste another copy of the group and rotate it 90 degrees to act as the side underpinnings. 17). 18). ” Now, onto the lamp. 8 is created primarily of primitives. Depending on your program of choice, you may wish to alter the primitives used to better suit your capabilities. For instance, the base of the lamp in Cinema4D was created with the “oil tank” primitive, in Lightwave the “disc” tool, while the “RoundedCube Tool” was most appropriate for Strata StudioPro. No matter which shape you choose, create it in the same way we did in the steps for F IGURE Two ends of underpinnings.
