Part 1: Books

Part 1 of a short series of Blender to Unity via Substance Painter videos in which i go through how i create and texture clutter assets for games.

Clutter assets are small incidental objects randomly placed in scenes to make them feel lived in, in this first part, using Blender i take you through my method of creating a simple book asset, then move it into Substance Painter to texture.

I’ve just noticed a small section of the video is missing (at 2:39), my apologies for that, I’ve no idea how that happened, just checked the original and it’s all there, must be a YouTube upload glitch. In the mean time, if you’re wondering what was missing it was only two steps:

1. I added a single edge loop top to bottom and pushed it along the X to create the width of the spine.
