Hey guys,

I'm interested to know what kind of workflow are using, may help some people find a new way of doing things, or another app to help us work better.

For my most recent hard poly modelling its been:

 

3dMax     (low poly, crease the lines, duplicate then turbo smooth then  export high res)

3D-Coat  (on turbo smooth results bring in as surface and use live clay with the Curve tools to put in lines and details) and paint a id map

Substance Designer (create a base coat of metal and scratches with the filters)

3D-Coat  Use the PBR effects to paint damage or wear

Create low poly retopo in Max and import as retopo in 3D-coat then bake all (the only software package I know that transfers all maps to another model(inc roughness and metal) with different UV's)

 

Im still happy with its results. Also got my company to buy 2 floating licenses.
