  1. BACKUP VIDEO Make sure to download and extract these files: Jedi Academy SDK PakScape You can also grab a free version of 3D Studio Max for students (several versions, I recommend the latest one) 3D Studio Max Although I'm sorry to say, you're probably gonna have to work with the Trial Version of Photoshop or buy it, if you wanna follow my exact workflow. I hear Photoshop CS2 is free to get but due to finding in on a weird site, I won't link it here. Just google for it!
  2. Hello and welcome to the Basic Lightsaber Crafting video-series tutorial! After the previous tutorial, I've upgraded some plugins and my UVW mapping method to something a lot easier. I've tried hard to work as slowly as possible, so everyone has got lots of time to pause and follow me step by step. This tutorial should be achievable for every single person out there who would like to learn hilt creation. I will be using the following programs: 3D Studio Max 2016 Student Version Adobe Photoshop CC NOTE: 1. The modeling part I show in 3D Studio Max should be possible to complete in other programs like Blender for an identical result. The difference between programs is slightly how they work and what buttons you gotta press but in theory, it should be the same to some extent. 2. The texturing part does not hold every second of my workflow routine. I show several tricks to get the job done for a step but leave most of the work to you alone; be creative and maybe do things better than me, even! 3. If you get lost or don't understand what is happening, post a question down below! Okay, before we get started, we will have to download some files.

  4. Thanks, I tried to take it slow and in enough detail that people know what we're doing, but I tried hard not to overcompensate and throw in too much needless info. All in all, today I'm pretty happy with the way I've written it back then, but feedback is welcome (both positive and negative) and I'll think on everything and do better in the future.
  5. This is the way! I'll be joining in! ? Been a long while since I last uploaded anything. I'm definitely gonna do one of the weps.
  6. A shame, I forgot/didn't have time for the contest this year. I'll be joining the next one!
    The thing is for some reason I love the idea behind these kinds of mods. You produce some inspiring looks - I got an idea or two for lightsabers from your work. Nice!
