Wow, this was awesome.

Thanks for the great tutorial. I think this just blew my mind how quickly you did that. I will have to put this one in my back pocket to come and review often. I am not experienced enough to remember each step but it was not an overly complex process either.

What exactly was the script/macro that you were talking about in the beginning of the video (video time 0:26)? I guess you are talking about a previous workflow's work?

  • blanchsb Glad you enjoyed it! There is no unique way to proceed, so best is to remember each isolated basic case and adjust based on the target's shader.

    I refer to this tutorial, which describes a method to project a picture on any given surface wile preserving topology. If you haven't watched it yet I recommend checking it as well to understand how it works. Since it requires quite a few steps, I wrote a python script (the one I refer to in the beginning) to skip all these steps. The script is available on the resources (QuickCaster addon).

    Let me know if you ave any issue!
