Post subject: My MM2 Car-Making Tutorials v2 Reply with quote

Hi all! I started making a new tutorial that I hope will teach you everything about making cars for MM2. These are mostly videos and they follow a similar pattern to my old tutorial. If the videos are too fast for you to understand, you can always refer to my old tutorial which is still good. It is available to read at MM2C or download from MMA or MM2X.

NOTE: Make sure to watch in max. quality (480p) and maybe even in fullscreen if you cant read the small numbers. Enjoy!

You can automate a lot of that within Photoshop.

Speaking of which, why are you pasting each view into a new image, selecting the car, then pasting it yet again into a new image to gain the transparancy? (which you end up filling in with white again) .. Why not just create a new image with a transparent background, select what you don't want and hit the delete key.

Also, get a mic.

My way ensures the images are perfectly dead-centered on the canvas. Yea, when you paste onto a new canvas its placed in the center, but how do you know the area you selected to copy&paste also had the image at the center?

I have a mic. But:
1. Stupid vista machine has problems recording sounds...
2. I sound terrible in recordings
3. Too much hassle sync-ing the video and audio when I have to speed up video sometimes. BTW, that video was running at 2X speed. What would I do with leftover audio?
4. Text owns audio the same way newspaper owns radio. Also avoids confusion.

Any other questions? Mr. Green

Sorry its taking so long to make the next video (about modeling), but I'm finding it hard to teach how to model the Gallardo (its even hard for me!). So I think I will choose another car. Any suggestions?

Perhaps a Dodge Viper GTS, or a Ferrari 612 Scaglietti?
