Terrain LOD & tesselation

While working on a gdscript to generate a terrain with several level of details (LOD), a tricky issue popped up: the terrain had holes scattered across its surface… There is a difference of definition on the tesselation frontiers, the vertices at the lower level joins 2 distant areas of the texture while the vertices at

Retopology (manual and automated)

Retopology is the process of converting high-resolution models into something much smaller that can be used for animation. It can be a difficult process, but the basic idea is to create another mesh that simplifies the original HD asset. source: https://conceptartempire.com/retopology/ Manual This process is usually done manually with tools like Retopoflow, a superb addon

GAN-aided creation and blurry authorship

Ganbreeder is a “massively collaborative creative tool and network” developped by Joel Simon. The proposition is to create images by playing with the “genes” of generative adversarial network [1] Process The interface is minimal: after creating an account, you are invited to pick and start from an existing “image” or start one from scratch, edit

Softskinned & articulated platypus

After several hours of adjustments in blender, platypus has now more control points. As shown in the image above, mesh is controlled by invisible edges, acting as rubber bands. Playing a bit longer with group shrink and control points, and the model is really changing shape Model used is the Platypus from William Reynish under

Softskinned platypus

After nearly 9 month of inactivity, the development of softskin is back on tracks. Softskin is a module inspired by tensegrity for godot engine (what else?). Demo video:

Isabelle Arvers’s first godot machinima

So proud to present the first machinima made by the french artist Isabelle Arvers with GodotEngine! What I super enjoyed with Godot is that in less than 4 hours and the help of François, I was able to create an abstract sea with the colors of the sun and the sky, as well as the
