Just a Question,

I have photos of various textures including wood palings, corogated iron and bricks. How can I use the textures on buildings, fences, sheds etc, on Gmax.
:confused: :eek: :o
Also, how do I colour items on Gmax?

All help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, :)

If you are just starting out I'd recommend Blender. Basically 3D CAD programs apply a texture to a mesh by mapping. Just use your photos as texture files.

Have a look at my recent vans they have a photo in a .tga texture file, placed there by Paintshop pro, but GIMP or Paint.net will work fine and are free.

There are a heap of gmax tutorials at the Trainz Resources Directory (http://trainzresources.com) under Tutorials/gMax of all weird places. Look for the now famous simple building and several other tutorials involving textures. But as John said, Blender is the direction most are going.
