They should occupy the diffuse and opacity slots, respectively. Call the material “Palm” if you haven’t named it already. Apply the material to the plane, add an Edit Mesh to the stack, select all the polygons and change the material ID to 2. The palm leaf texture should appear on the leaf model. Next, add a Bend modifier to the stack. Select X as the bend axis and set the angle to 90°. The result should match Fig. 12. The frond object can now be used to populate the trunk. 12 42 Adapting a Concept Move the frond object to the top section of the palm trunk.
Then, set the blend mode to normal. Then, use Shift + CTRL + U to desaturate the image. Then, type Shift + Ctrl + L to apply Auto Levels to the image. This will increase the contrast of the values in the layer, as in Fig. 15. 15 63 3ds Max Modeling for Games Set this layer blend mode to overlay. I also reduced the opacity to 46%. This will create contrast in the image. The previous steps have removed the contrast a little; so we are now putting it back in. Just so that you can see the exact difference, have a look at both textures by comparing them side by side with each other, as in Fig.
This will provide us with everything we need to make the texture. Using Tools > Render UVW Template, render out the UVs as a TGA image. This forms the basis of the texture page. 18a Using the UV render as a layout, create diffuse and opacity (alpha) maps. The opacity map is needed for the glass areas. Place the textures into the relevant slots in the Material Editor and apply them to the model. 18b Set up a basic rig and render the model to check the results. Edit the diffuse and opacity maps until you are happy with the results; also make sure the material is two-sided or the glass will look too transparent.
