Thread: Modeling Landscape for Mattepainting

    Unhappy Modeling Landscape for Mattepainting

    Is there any Plug-in or something else to rebuild a Landscape CG Environment from a real Backplate Photo in LW-Modeler for exporting as FBX to use as Camera projection Geometry in a Composite Software? Modeler or LWCAD etc. has IMHO nothing to easy deform Grids along the Hills and Valleys.

    Example from Maya

    I'am not interesting to generate a PointCloud, but a time save Landscape Geometry modeling / recreating. If anyone has experience with this in LW or other tools outside Maya please let me know

    You could try EasySpline. It is real-time spline patches previewer.
    http://www.easyspline.com
    It's also included in TrueArt's Modeling Pack
    http://modelingpack.trueart.eu

    You would have to make array of splines, connected rows and columns, so they're proper spline patches. That should be easy with regular Box tool, then using EasySpline's Make Spline tool. Then unifying 2-point splines into long splines.
    After that enable spline patches previewer, and start moving vertexes in Y axis or so. To conform photo.

    Other tool for this kind of task is TrueBump
    http://truebump.trueart.pl

    In Weight map mode, you can paint displacement using Airbrush.


    Then press TrueBump to check result. Undo if not good, and repeat process until getting desired result.

    Okay, thanks.

    TrueBump doesn't work. Weight map painting on a existing Terrain Photo or Buildings is more random than getting the exact Geometry.

    EasySpline is a way to test, but unifying 2-point splines into long splines - i need a Grid Wireframe Mesh Density with >4000 Polys....

    This comes under the heading of "photometric modeling", which would be a good place to start.
