Here is a short tutorial breaking down a few workflow techniques I used in my demo reel. I touch on some of these things:
• Complex animation that is driven by a single spline.
• Normalizer effect, more accurate normal maps than Crazybump (and greyscale bump maps)
• Proxy shaders
• TP Particle caching.
• TP Size over life
• Motion camera for easy-to-use realistic camera movement.
