    meltdown

    Hi all,

    Long time since I posted any works.

    The base of the "insides" of the HDD was sculpted in ZB. I used AR to overpaint the textures and finally composited the whole thing inside a picture of a HDD case (again using AR).

    I must say, I'm loving the new selection tools. They make texturing on the fly a piece of cake

    C & C's welcome.

    Very cool!!
    Never thought you could use AR with ZB...

    I tried ZB but could not get used to the interface..right now I'm using blender, but even that's too round about..
    Need a good sculpting software

    Hey flyman,

    Thanks for replying.

    What I like about ZB is that you can export an alpha of the exported colour image. The alpha image is of course a grey scale image that holds information about the "depth".

    Both images (colour and alpha) are imported into AR, each on its own layer. I then use AR to texture the colour image (like the one shown above), using different layers and blending modes. The alpha layer is used to create depth, normally using an overlay blend mode.

    You can do much the same thing with almost any 3d app out there. Just use a basic material to render your object or scene with and use AR to really bring it to life. I did much the same thing with Carrara Pro here:

    Very intriguing image. Love the pressed plastic to get a look at the shapes as a relief sculpture.

    Nice!
