Discover how to take pre-existing scanned assets and quickly and professionally clean them up using a combination of Wrap 3, ZBrush, and Maya. This workshop by Modeler and Generalist, Scott Denton, details the clean-up of a scan created by NYCap3D using the state-of-the-art photogrammetry solution, RealityCapture, along with assets produced by 3D Scan Store. A brief preview of Zoo Tools is also covered.
Throughout the course of the workshop, Scott discusses how to use Wrap 3 and ZBrush to transfer textures and displacement details from the 3dScanstore mesh. He also goes over some of the specific setups and essential tools inside of both Wrap and ZBrush that help to speed up the overall workflow. Scott teaches the important export options that you need to know and includes a demonstration on how to hook the textures up in Maya to achieve a render worthy of being passed on to a look-development artist. Helpings of industry tips are included along the way, particularly when it comes to what look-dev artists expect of modelers, plus tricks for organizing and naming your files like a pro.
The final portion of the workshop covers how to create a quick rig using Mixamo to bring some life to the character for the final renders using Arnold in Maya.
