need some help with model(just some doubts)
ok ok, hope someone can help me here.
Well first i'll tell u what im trying to do; I´m doing a space hero unit, I already have the model, skins, the meshgloss.fx and the BlobStencilMasked.fx (im still looking for the falcon engine effect, cause im going to use it).
Ok now my doubt is how many models do I have to do???
I've been looking in the meg files, and found this(my unit is going to be something like the falcon thats why i took those as an example):
I don't really understand what are all those models, are those only different camera views,front and back, destroyed front and destroyed back??
What about animations, I only found the ala for landing, what about the turns and rest of the movements?
Last question, I read somewhere that i should save my model's skin in a dds format, is that right???? i've always used .tga extention (if i have to use the .dds then how do i make 3dsm read them =( i't totally lost here)
I'm a real noob with this, hope someone could help me.
thx in advance.
