Unified Workflow for 3D Modeling


3D modeling for StemCell means having clean, unwrapped geometry and textrue based materials for both standard specular and metallic PBR workflows. This allows TurboSquid to handle automated conversions to multiple DCC applications and game engines.

3D Applications Supported By StemCell


StemCell is open to all artists. Artists can currently upload a model built in 3ds Max or Maya (with either V-Ray or Mental Ray) as well as Cinema 4D (Advanced/Physical renderer). TurboSquid will then provide these artists with cross conversions to 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema 4D as well as Unreal and Unity (only when metallic PBR textures are submitted).

Current StemCell Limitations

Since the StemCell specification requires artists to simplify their workflow, we understand that there will be limitations introduced to the types of content contributors can create for StemCell.

We’re currently working on addressing these issues, but in its current state, the StemCell project is looking to solve the immediate goal of offering useful content, in native applications, to a wide range of varied customers.

Limitations
  • Hair & Fur
  • Sub-Surface Scattering
  • Refraction (Game Engines)
  • Volumes
  • Rigging
  • Animation
  • Dynamics/FX
  • Displacement
