[10000] Add images of Cross models to encyclopedia pages
« on: October 01, 2009, 12:50:19 pm »
Once the plugin is flawless, we need to create rendered images of the Chrono Cross models and add them to the encyclopedia. We'll be replacing the low-quality scanned models from Ultimania. Finishing an extractor for disc two may coincide with this objective.

As a byproduct, we'll also finish the rank icons for the Chrono Compendium (which lack certain models).

What size is best?
And format?

For example, these images, except the first one, are png32(with alpha channel), pretty big in filesize, but perhaps much bettern than jpg.

Ah, those are beautiful. Well, the bigger, the better, I guess. 1280 seems like a good width, since that's the width of most resolutions. And definitely, PNG like that.

I wonder what poses we should have them, though? Front, back, side (and other side if asymmetrical)...but after that? Top, bottom, angle? I wonder if it's all necessary. Maybe it's enough to have Front, back, side, and angle.

Edit: I realized this would be very time-consuming and is very important to the encyclopedia, so I made it 10,000. How much time does it take to produce 4 images like this of a model? (front, back, side, angle) I remember struggling with the render view.

I don't know...

PNG is a very good format, though GIF is more universal.

Other than that, those are very nice high-resolution shots.

 :P

Well, better gnaw the large bone bit by bit.

It seems many models don't look that great in high resolution like 1280.
Just  post some of them to get feedbacks, in alpha-beta order.

Fantastic work! This looks like a dream come true for ZeaLitY.

Big Boxer's idle animation is just a chest, so I used another animation.
