      Hi there, a while ago I started making a tutorial on doing 3D toons for wintermute for the community. As i was doing it the and project grew I decided to try and make a definitive guide about the creation and utilising of a 3D character resource. I was going to post the entire thing in one go but due to time constraints, with work and my own project, I have been convinced to release each section as I it is completed.

      I hope that these video tutorials may be useful to others and is my way of trying to thank Mnemonic for the crazy amounts of time he puts into making this free engine for hobby game developers, and commercial developers alike.

Now that YouTube hosts HD content I have been meaning to move these tutorials there... taken me a while but I have done it... have fun and I hope they help.

There was lots of copying and pasting of YouTube codes in this post.. so if anything doesn't work or points to the wrong place just let me know and I'll fix it.

Tutorial 04 - Stream
Tutorial 05
01 - Creating Symmetrical Design Plates

This tutorial talks about how to prepare your design documents for use in your 3D app of choice as Design Plates. (images used to model off).
  • How to ensure your design is Symmetrical to aid in Symmetrical Modelling
  • How to ensure your front / side views are aligned to each other.
  • How to ensure you Symmetrical Drawing aligns to your Zero World space in your 3D application

02 - Modelling your Character off your Design Plates

This tutorial will discuss the modelling process to build your model off your design plates. Rather than simply record my making of a model, I decided to try and discuss conceptual ideas of model creation. With luck i hope to have introduced novice modellers to procedures and techniques that will enable you to build a 3D model that is easy to set up for animation and game content.

This tutorial will discuss
  • Symmetrical Modelling - To speed up the modelling process / Aid in the easy creation of a UV Layout
  • Choice of Polygons - Do i use Tris or Quads, or polygons with more than 4 sides?
  • Joints Setups - How to make a joint that will be easy to skin and produce decent deformation
  • Use of the Model T-Pose - A discussion of what pose to model your toon in to aid skinning and produce decent deformation
  • Easy way to build mouths and eye blink topology


NOTE:- This tutorial is a little long due to modeling being a large topic. Still I feel I have included some good information here, even though I got real board towards the end and the ending is a little rushed. I may need to redo the end of this but I will wait to see comments (if anyone watches it lol)

03 - Building Symmetrical UV Layouts

This tutorial is about how to do a more advanced UV layout to achieve two things. 1) create a uvlayout that can be easily read and thus painted on in a 2D packadge, and 2) Arrangment of UV layout so you use the space of your bitmap to full effect.

04 - Texturing
This tutorial is in a way an extension of the first.. it outlines some methods of workflow for painting your textures as well as how to streamline your UV layout during the texture process as you find small things you need to tweak.

Have fun.. hope you like it

05 - Rigging

This topic is pretty large so I am doing it in a few sections.

Part 1 - Introduction + WME Setup.
  • This is a introduction to rigging in general. You can if you wish skip this tutorial completely. It just focus on some very general stuff about 3DsMax and WME pipeline procedures.
  • How to Zero out your model (yes again.. but it is so important)
  • Installing and How to use the Panda Export Plugin for 3dsMax
  • Setting up a "Test" WME project to view your model in the game engine.
  • Fixing some common errors in viewing your models in WME
  • Getting your mesh perfectly setup and ready to start Rigging and Skinning

Part 2 - Rigging With Biped
  • How to Setup CS Studio
  • What is CS
  • How dose CS Work
  • How dose the body deform in the real-world
  • How to correctly align your biped to your model data.

Part 3 - Vertex Weighting with Skin
  • What is Skin and How dose it work?
  • How to adjust envelopes.
  • How to use mirror mode on a zero'd out model.
  • How to use ABS Weighting
  • How to use paint Weights.
  • Rar file contains a animation Bip of a deformation stress test



Well that is it I will update this page as needed and I hope you guys like it. I would appreciate any comments and constructive criticism.

Be excellent to each other and Party on Dudes

You use SILO!!!! Thats my favourite modeller as well!
Great tutorials man!
Keep em coming!

PS: can you try using silo2 for the UVmapping tut as well, i know the unwrapping module is a little buggy at the moment, but its good enough for a game character

It's the really the best tutorials for building game characters, I found on the net!

I make an adventure game in the wintermute engine for  my final work in my studies,
and your tutorials are such a great help!

Looking foward to the next step!
Thank You for making such a great job!!!

    05 - Rigging

    This topic is pretty large so I am doing it in a few sections.

    Part 3 - Vertex Weighting with Skin
    • What is Skin and How dose it work?
    • How to adjust envelopes.
    • How to use mirror mode on a zero'd out model.
    • How to use ABS Weighting
    • How to use paint Weights.
    • Rar file contains a animation Bip of a deformation stress test

    not yet available.


    Yea i know it has taken me ages to get around to this but hey... I am busy :) Still this tutorial has all the info you will need to make a working skin. As this (like all my tutorials) seam to go to long I do not completely finish the skin itself in this tutorial. Still it has all the information on skin and i leave it at a state where all there needs to be done is tweaking using already discussed techniques. VERY shortly I will release a amendment to this tutorial witch will contain the sped up completion of the skinning and the final testing in WME.

    Hope this helps. This really completes the tutorial series. I will also release the final sections soon with are about animation layup and final WME utilisation. Still by the end of this tutorial you should be able to make a 100% working 3D Studio Max real-time character for animation. Have fun making your resources and check back for updates to this thread.

    Thanks to everyone that has sent me emails and pms about this tutorial series i really appreciate it. Makes me feel good. So if you like this please say hi in the thread or something. I get a kick out of it.

    Be excellent to each other and party on dudes.[/list]

    Hi, i found your tutorials on youtube and they are helping me out a lot!
    But i'm trying to download the file from Filefront, but the link seems to be dead... (tried alot of times now)
    Could you please reupload or send me the .bip file used in Part 3 of the skinning section? ("SkinTestAim.bip")
    It would really help me out...

    A million thanks in advance!

    The FileFront Links are LONG LONG dead... in fact I should fix this post to remove them..... As for the included files that were originally in those rars like the biped test animation and the UVmap test image.... well I'll have to see if I can find them... they are about here somewhere... .. .
