1. In this video Alan shows how a simple tree interpolating PointPosition data can prove practical for repetitive modeling. -- Who said ICE is only for fx and rigging? Pssh! :p

  2. aa_stonePlacementTools 1.0 for 3dStudio Max

    this script collects some utilities for the creation of stone walls, stone pavements and an irregular stone pattern to simulate both walls and floors.

    the script automatically bakes normal maps, AO maps and height maps for realtime use.

    the images from the video are rendering of some script-generated patterns, without any material, only postproduction and compositing.

    the script is available to download for free here:

  3. In this tutorial you will learn how to set up a modeling rig on a sphere object, in order to make it look like a stone.

    This technique delivers a very believable result and is absolutely non destructive. Once set up, you can easily modify the results, only by changing the mappingoffsets in the first "cellular" displacement map.

    This video is only about the modeling rig, a later tutorial will cover the mapping an texturing for the highpoly, as also an approach to make this a game ready asset.

  5. Other test : vimeo.com/36242041

    To continue the serie of tools for motion graphics,
    I wrote two new scripts that allows to transfer the animation of an object on others with offset.

    You can do it in realtime using AnimTransfert-Realtime and bake it in keyframe, or directly using keyframe with AnimTransfert-Keyframe.

    AnimTransfert-Keyframe also contains tools for managing your keyframes, move them, shift them, reverse ...
    very useful for moving the keys on hundred objects.
