    thanks for the reply ncollings, thanks for the hardbody baking tip, i use maya to bake my hardbody objects, i am unsure if it is just as good as the one in max... what would you prefer to bake in xnormal that you wouldn't in 3dsmax though?

    Default Totally great stuff sir !!!

    I have spend less than 1 week to finish AC2 because the graphic was attractive. I really admire you and your team mates. All of you had done a great work.

    I have a question about the work flow. ( Im just a newbie to 3D graphic so im sorry if my question is stupid)

    Did you create mesh from 3dsmax first and then scuplted in ZB or you scuplted in ZB and then retopology. I tried to read all the comments but I could not get the answers.

    Additionally, about the normal maps, why dont u use the creating normal funtion right in ZB and you use xNormal instead of that? Does xNormal work better than normal map creating in ZB?

    KonginChains: i use xnormals when i need to bake a hipoly obj of more than 500k polys, if it's lower than that i usually bake it in max .

    LeECO: the basemesh is created in max then i switch in zbrush for sculpting. And if i don't use zmapper it's because my hipoly models don't have uvs. Sometimes i used zmapper for object that were already unwarped. But not anymore though, because in ZB3.5 R3 there is no zmapper anymore and the new normalmap generation tool doesn't allow use to setup the specific settings that we need to avoid seems issues etc . So now i just stick with 3dsmax and xnormals for baking my maps.

    @ncollings: hey you wouldn't happen to have a front, back and sides render of Ezio in the Altair armour would you? I'm currently in the process of making it for real and its hard to get good ref outside of screenshots from the game....

    robo3687, if U have the game, you can use program like 3d reaper and export ezio's model to 3ds max. this works actually, i have tried it recently.

    ncollings
    , I got a question. while you're working on the character model in max are you using any references? for proportions for example? or are u making it all by yourself? and, im almost sure your characters contain from several pieces. so you create those in max, then export them all separately as .obj to zbrush, append all those pieces as subtools. then sculpt, texture and again export all those separately? or is this just one detailed mesh? Cheers.

    you really did a great job, i'm curious too on how you make it? Did you browse for pics first for your project and enhance a little bit to be perfect for your project. Just curious..
