TreeHouse_Start

Post by FHembree » 10 Nov 2018, 04:41

I will try this tree house challenge and will try modeling in SketchUp as it easy and good at using rectangle meshes. Works well for wood boards, rails, and support beams & etc (all rectangles).
I will try to import the final mesh into Unreal as it has good trees & etc for rendering. Not exactly sure how I will do all this :roll:
The model so far.

I decided to change to a hexagon shaped tree house. Now on to exporting and importing for rendering. 8-)

The setting is awesome. And the idea of a hexagon is a good one to go with.

This will probably be my final. Just need to see if I decide to add any more to it later. Don't really know anything much about unreal but I
like the fact that I don't need to waste any time rendering because everything is in real time. The image is simply a screen capture done inside
of unreal. Just rotate viewport to the desired angle and then do a screen capture. :)
Importing of obj files was pretty easy also. Did require rescaling and rotating of the object and then assign desired unreal textures.
The two chairs were downloaded from the SketchUp warehouse.

Well, I decided to make a couple of changes. I thought it needed a safety rail and also changed to chair fabric to a red color. ;)
