First topic message reminder :

Hello all,

I was just wondering if you have some sort of a tutorial that shows techniques on object transformations. im really not sure how it's done and im having hard time looking for tutorials on the net. Para kasing complicated masyado yung mga transformations sa movies like transformers..daming parts ewan kung saan napupunta..

MAYA po sana pero ok lang pag MAX basta makuha ko logic. TIA po sa lahat. Smile

just saw this on cgtalk.

'56 Chevy Nomad Transformer

it's the artist's WIP thread and it looks pretty good as well. might be worth a look.

hello guys im new here in CGpinoy Im from Mushroom Multimedia Company.. anyway heres the finish project of our Nissan GT-R

How to make a thing transform? - Page 2 Nissan%20GTR%20Transformers

Ill give you some ideas for you to understand ..but first im not good in english so pasensya na.. anyway the tools you need in 3dsmax is just the select_and_link, move and rotate functions but first you have to slice your car into pieces.. that is the first complicated part in making this project.. and the last part in making this project is the animation of all pieces and imo there is no other shortcuts here..

1. prepare your modeled car (1 week process if you make your own car)
How to make a thing transform? - Page 2 Car%20parts%20in%20car%20position


2. model a 3d robot (1 - 2 weeks process if you want a very detailed robot)
How to make a thing transform? - Page 2 Robot%20parts%20in%20human%20position

3. link the pieces of the robot like linking all the left forearm parts into one object (the parent object of the forearm part) then link that parent object to forearm biped .. (just use the Select and Link button)


4. merge the car and the robot into 1 scene. (be sure to save the file in number incrementally for each stage in the modelling)

5. reposition the biped in a fetal position inside the car. (be sure to enable the figure mode button to reposition the biped so that the car will not deform later because once you've linked the car's parents to the biped you have no chance to undo the car's parts original position when the biped is in human position)

How to make a thing transform? - Page 2 Biped%20and%20Car%20in%20fetal%20position


6. slice the car into pieces..

7. link the car's parts into the object's parents - this part is really your choice as to where you would like to link the parts of the car to the robot.. (for example I'd prefer the front bumper as the breast part of the robot.. the doors, the forearms or shoulder (2 doors cars).. the windshield is at the back.. Rear bumper is the foot part. the roof as the forelegs or legs (you can use the back door for this part if you have a 4 door car) and etc....
How to make a thing transform? - Page 2 Bangle%20bee%20-%200100


8. the tricky part begins here.. start at frame 0... which is the car mode then hide all the object except the biped...

Car parts in car mode
How to make a thing transform? - Page 2 Car%20parts%20in%20car%20position


9. animate the biped in human mode(standing position is better) at least 3 to 5 seconds animation
How to make a thing transform? - Page 2 Biped%20in%20human%20position

10. unhide all objects then hide the biped..

11. animate the robot parts until it is hidden inside the car... (I prefer at least 4 keyframes animation for every part of the robot for 3 to 5 seconds don't get lazy in this part even if the process becomes tedious and time consuming)

Robot parts in car mode
How to make a thing transform? - Page 2 Robot%20parts%20in%20car%20position2

10. reverse the key frame animation by selecting all key frames of the robot parts....


11. hide all the objects except the car parts. since the biped has two animated positions(the fetal position which is the car mode and the standing position which is the robot mode) you can now go to the robot mode frames and start animating the car's parts until they are repositioned to the robot mode (again at least 4 key frames animation)

car parts in robot mode

12. and the final one .. Good Luck!

heres my animated version

woohoo great job bai! that was a very refreshing tutorial bai aparach. i love the weight of the robot on this better than your previous one. youtube did not do justice to your animation though.

try using morpher..

ang morpher poh gumagana lang kng equal ung verts at polys ng object mo to morph to another object..
advice ko po gawa ka ng object na mraming verts at poly.. copy the first object always.. don not use any modifier or anything that will add verts and poly to ur new object

jovane is correct though (for morph patterns) it must not be confused with the object with the morpher mod on - which of course allow you to add more modifiers as long as it is AFTER the Morph Modifier...

galing ng transformer. sana makagawi rin ako.
ung nagamit ko para sa anim scale, rotate, pivot, parenting. not as complicated as a robot.

makikita madaming mali or cheat pero mabilis na framerate ang final after nabigay sa adobe guys kaya dami natago sa post edit.
ung transformers na gawa ng ilm madami din daw cheat pag slow mo watch. hehe
