The do's and don'ts of GMAX modelling.

Recommended Posts

Is there anyone who can tell me what I should do and what I should not do when making a GMAX model, so that there are no major problems when exporting? Thank you so much.

Amen! :-lol very good Felix! I'd like to add... Finish your visual model before you: A.. apply textures B.. Start animations C.. Start the VC D.. Cut out windows and doors I- Get your scale set right before you begin II- Set up a box with the 3 views applied, Do not just use a bitmap in the background. This will solve a whole host of scale and perspective issues III- SEARCH THE FORUMS FIRST... hard to imagine you'll discover a problem not already covered, but sometimes its just too hard to find, so just ask.finally, just have fun!joe
