This is a fully rigged and animated model.
Most parts consist of subdivision control cages (low poly models+ meshsmooth modifiers)
The model consist of separate segments linked to a multiple segment IK chain.
Each segment has its own rotation point so no deformations occur on meshes.
The IK chain in turn is driven by a spline controller that is controlled by 5 dummy's.
The knifes and tips in front and back are also animated.
Content description of the package:
- one 3ds max file setup to render with default scanline renderer.
- one 3ds max file setup to render with Octane renderer.
(Octane render for 3ds max produced most renders you see on top)
- Shaders and textures + texture environment and HDRI map.
- and a map containing al renders you see on top without the watermark.
Note: Both 3ds max files are click render ready and deliver the result you see on top
of this page. The example renders had some miner post like color balance and
some vignetting. The scanline version renders extremely fast, less than a minute
per frame. The Octane version renders extremely photoreal but takes about 25
minutes per frame on 2X GTX680 GPU's.
