View Full Version : Viewport/Face modeling problem
22-11-2004, 12:00 AM
Right now I'm modeling the face of "Joan of Arc". But I haven't quite understood how you get to look from the side and from the front. So you get both surface and depth.
This is my problem now.
I want to have it like this:
Anybody understand my situation? I'm pretty new and still learning so..
Thanks for any help.

you can`t have 2 viewport views in 1 viewport.
The jpg that you showed that you want to look like is just 2 images put together in photoshop or similar......
if you are looking close you can see where one image ends and the other begins.....
sorry...to make clearer....front and side views have to be on 2 seperated viewports

yes I can see that. But I've tried many things and this is just to illustrate my problem.

what is your viewport configuration?

I'm following the tutorial now, but it's harder to work if I don't have the proper configuration.

the default should be fine for that tutorial.
You have to model in all viewports and check your work in the perspective view....
if you place poly`s in your front view....it not means they are in the correct place in the side view....so you have to also place correctly in the side view or move them to correct placing....
hope this helps you a little....

Do I need only one model for both the perspective views? :???:

yes you only need 1 model.
If you have default[4 viewports] then each viewport is showing a seperate angle of the same model.
if you want to change your viewports then go...customize-viewport config..at top of interface and change viewports to what you like....
but yes...you only need 1 model to show in all the viewports....

Ah, now it all makes sense.. !!.. Thanks alot. :D
Almost.. What should I have if I want both sides?.. Front?Left?Right?
22-11-2004, 02:27 AM
you can have whatever config you want to have.
you will want to keep perspective view...always....
for a head and body model....you need front or back....and left or right...
I`m not familiar with this tutorial...but usually you just model half the head then mirror it....
but for your purposes I would definatly have...front-left-perspective......
top or bottom isin`t very usefull at this point....
usually you use the viewports that your blueprints are set to....you probably have a left blue and a fron blue.....so you will definatly want thos viewports active.....
good luck to you

Yeah I've tried that, I don't know how to set up these blueprints. I need to have two blueprints but only one model.. I can't figure this out. :blah:

I really need to know how to do this.
