San Francisco’s Moscone Center, Room # 2000


Friday, March 27th; 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

In this session, Orpilla will reveal workflows that are used in-house at EA to quickly generate in-game assets such as those deployed on SimAnimals and other leading game titles. Attendees will also learn how MAXON BodyPaint 3D easily integrates into current Photoshop, Maya, Softimage and/or 3ds max workflows.

MAXON BodyPaint 3D capabilities deemed especially beneficial by Orpilla include:

  • Performance -- shaves off nearly a third of the texturing time compared to other 3D packages
  • User interface -- allows for easy workflow customization
  • Ability to physically paint onto digital assets -- allows artists to explore variations in visual styles very quickly. Brushes let artists set up dynamics to create an unlimited number of effects.
  • Cross compatibility with Photoshop
