first pillar section textured

Im so glad the AO map turned out ok from xnormals. the Cavity map that was converted with Ndo2 is so much easier and better. Main thing is this way it saves a lot of time having to wait for it to bake.

maya non destructive Symmetry

I normally dont write much on this blog, but this time I want to write about the mirror tool. most maya users like to model one side of the mesh then delete half. It works fine but very tedious. I found a work around, which is the mirror cut tool.

1) select mesh, run mirror cut option

2) Uncheck the merge with the original and then apply

3)What ever edits you make to one side will be transferred over to the mirror side.
