VGAM1133 – Digital Texturing and Lighting pdf

Credits: 3 (3/0/0)
Description: This course is a comprehensive introduction of digital textures that simulate details to a digital model that would be impossible to model. This course provides detail attention on standard three-dimensional (3D) projections and UV (axes) mapping on a 3D software package (Autodesk Maya). Professional techniques for texture painting in Photoshop will be addressed along with techniques for overcoming common texture mapping problems.
