Hey /3/, I've been using Google SketchUp literally for a day for modeling a few buildings and it seems really good and fun. What are your thoughts on it? Is it ideal for 3D modeling especially for importing into game engines like unreal engine 4 or unity for game development? pic related a quick building I made
No. Sketchup is for quick architecture-visualization work for the most part. It create garbage geometry and UV mapping that isn't really usable for games. There's a reason it's so easy to use, it's not good for anything but creating things that work for archviz.
Anybody have any tutorials for unreal engine? Some of my professors like 3D animations of our projects (architecture student). they just want a walk-around but I really don't want to use sketchup+vray+ lumion, they look like a shitty sims houses and the project honestly doesn't come to life.
A couple of my classmates starting using lumion and I felt bad for them, good designs went to shit just by using shit software, it was funny though, they also added shit house music to their video presentations. Pretty cringe inducing.
