Fitting Iso Tiles in 3d Max

Recommended Posts

Clarify something for me...

Are you asking how to set up the tiles, or are you asking how to set up your camera so that they render correctly?

What''s your target project? 2D? 3D?

Looking over your previous post it seems like this is a question of creating a 3D image that renders into a tileable 2D image right?

I would pick a camera angle and freeze it, using it for all your tile rendering. Next set up your tile so the geometry is roughly tileable. I would then detach faces from the left side and weld them onto the right side, detach faces from the bottom and weld them to the top, etc. After that if you do any further tweaking make sure you don''t mess with the far edges so you don''t interupt your continuity.

Of course this doesn''t take all the guess work out of it. You''re going to have to do some renders of each tile, see where you have a problem, and of course touch it up a bit in another program. 3D Studio Max is a great way to create a raw base for 2D art, but it usually can''t be the total solution.

Hope this helps.
