From modeling and polygon arrangement, rigging and morph controls to realistic high-resolution textures, an amazing amount of attention to detail in every aspect of creation gives the end user “ultimate control” to assist in getting fast, easy and believable results.
Strong, graceful, determined, fierce and regal, its natural companionship with man in both work and art wins the horse a special seat in history.
With an amazing amount of attention to detail in every aspect of this collaborative creation and the driving principle of giving the end user “ultimate control”, master HiveWire modeler Chris Creek takes the 3D mesh topology into a brandnew, anatomically accurate arrangement of points and polygons that are distributed throughout the 3D model with believability in movement of the figure in mind.
The technical mastery of Paul Lessard (CG Cubed) extends that driving principle through the rigging and application of morphs and movement of the horse. Each aspect of the horse including the Mane, Tail and Fetlocks contain Master Controls to assist users in getting fast, easy and believable results.
For horse lover extraordinaire and texture expert Laurie Prindle (CWRW) ultimate control comes in the form of attention to the fine details of horse anatomy and motion as well as various horse breeds supported with highresolution texture maps produced from photos of her very own horses.
The HiveWire 3D Horse and each of its breeds honors the true essence of our freespirited equine companions and brings to you a versatile, featurerich experience never before achieved in a 3D animal model in this market.
