Silo 1.3 (Topology Brush)Community Forums/Developer Stations/Silo 1.3 (Topology Brush)
Hi, just letting everyone know that Silo 1.3 has just been released. If anyone is wanting to get into modeling or streamline thier art making then try this program.
The new tool in this version is called the Topology Brush, which lets you draw over the top of a really high poly mesh and it generates your drawing into polys. Very good for games work.
I may even do a tutorial on character modeling using silo if anyones intrested.
| I would be very interested in a tutorial on character modeling using silo booboom.|
This new feature of silo looks cool also.
| Oh good, I'd been hoping for that feature :) |
| This modeller looks totally awesome. I've been using the Learning Version, and considering to purchase the full version. Probably the best one at its price range. |
Just thought I'd give my bit on the new Topology Brush.
This new tool is awesome. I took a very high poly model (5000 poly's)I bought from Turbosquid and used the topology brush to make it a low poly ( 1200 poly's ) model. I was then able to reduce the polycount of it even more.
I would still be interested in boombooms character modeling using silo tutorial. If the tutorial was to use subdivided meshes that would still be cool.
| the topology brush seems cool, yep but...|
Jedive, have you learned Wings3d ?
Dunno, I model everything with it, and didn't have a good feeling with Silo...
But I reached a conclussion...Silo is better for achitecture and levels...while imo wings is better for organic...Maya people, or maya-like people, tend to feel better with it.
I don't know I have modelled everything with Wings3d, and is just so good...
But hey, the topology brush feature could be useful.
| I a a really crappy modeller, but yes, I played with wings an I like it a lot. My knowledge of Wings helped me with Silo... what were your bad feeling? |
| Got any before and after pics, Amon? Sounds interesting. |
| well, jedive...|
an less inmediate interface, and way less focused to organic...several of the Wings advantages out of it... Well... I was testing it for a pair of days, and was finally convinced about this conclussion...Anyway, to each his own...
I think there's too much hype with Silo and Zbrush(I have 1.55b), but each one has got to pick what he/she feels mor ecomfortable with...
And offtopic, but good luck, as allways, with Century... :)
| Offtopic again: Thanks Bob3d, we won the Best Graphics Award at the ArtFutura'04 Show (organized by Sony) with Century :). |
although there's an almost idiotic hype about Zbrush...it is compared to 1.55b MUCH better.
Although the new interface is a bit complicated compared to the former.
