Rendering from Qubicle to Blender Chapter 2: Setting Up your Model for Material Maps
February 12, 2017 by SkyTheVirus 1,217 0
If you have glowing solids and/or glass (both or combined) you are going to need to set up your model with these parts. If you try to export the whole model without separating each part, you cannot edit the materials within that model.
Make a copy of you model (Keep an original) and rename them into the materials that you are using in your model.
- [ModelName]_Glass.qbcl or [ModelName]_Glass_##.qbcl
- If there are variants to the opacity of each glass object be sure to number them.
Now you'll notice that there isn't one for metallics. As much as I've done this, I couldn't figure out how to make the material in Blender. I will update this tutorial once I've figured it out.
Go into each file and select+delete voxels that don’t belong. You can delete any parts of the model that doesn’t have the material.
Ex. The Elysian Knight’s Sword tip is the only thing that is Glowing Glass. So I deleted everything else from the model.
Warning! You HAVE to keep the model in its original place! You’ll see why when we start exporting the model.
