Part of the Cross Discipline Learning Flow: Introduction to Game Asset Creation

Texturing Game Assets with Blender

Difficulty: about 1 hour


Course Summary

Texturing plays a powerful role in computer graphics, but especially for game asset creation. Textures can simulate high-resolution details very believably but without the high-polygon counts. They can make a simple model look beautiful and complex. They can make a drab object interact with light in a believable way. So yeah, textures are important! This course takes you through the essential processes including Blender's map baking tools as well as the 3D painting system that includes a layer system for non-destructive texture painting.
