-This is a production ready, textured, UV mapped, rigged and animated model of a Snake.
-It isn’t modeled after any particular type of snake, rather it’s a generic and somewhat friendly snake.
-The model has a custom built rig that allows more complex animations then the standard spline IK based rig would allow.
To animate with this rig you create the path with the spline that you want the snake to travel on and then use the controls on the main helper to move the snake. The Snake isn’t limited to a horizontal plane and can travel in any direction by use of upnodes.
-Included in the download are 3 demo animation files which you can see in action in the turntable videos.
-The model comes with PNG texture maps for Diffuse, Bump and Specular at 2048 x 2048.
There are 3 different color diffuse map versions in the download.
In the “Accompanying Product Files” download section there is the Photoshop file for making extra alterative colored snakes quickly.
-All componets and materials are named appropriately and the meshes and rig are on different layers.
-There are 2 versions of the rigged Snake to download.
The first is the standard Max version, it has standard Max materials.
The second is set up to render in Vray. It has Vray materials and renders as shown in the preview images, minus the background.
-Thumbnails were rendered with Vray 1.50 in 3ds Max 2009.
