Quick Tip - from a Photo to a Game Texture in Five Minutes

Sign in to queue


In this quick video, I go from a photo I took with my phone, to a simple game texture in the Unreal game engine. Useful if you are making an Unreal VR demo - like in this video: Intro to Unreal for VR - or, any other game engine you want to make custom assets for.


I'd definitely spend more time painting on this if I wanted to use it in a game. ...And yeah, ok, the whole video is about eight minutes, but the process itself is quick to learn and "five minutes" sounds snappy.

Do you want to see more texturing tips including how to make bump maps? Send me feedback here, or on Twitter! 


Please tune in next week to the Game Dev Show where I'll show you the basic pipeline for game asset creation, model and texture!
