Alex Hogan - World Art Tools Alex Hogan - World Art Tools

This is a video showing off three tool sets I designed professionally.
The first lets an artist apply colors to a collection of meshes in a volumetric way - making it easy to batch-paint every LOD of a game asset at once.
The second is a diagnostic shader I wrote for 3d Studio Max that allows artists to see how the surfaces they are modelling will affect character physics and logic.
The third is a 3-layer blending shader designed for use on terrains. Each layer blends into the next based on a heightmap, allowing for nice ragged edge transitions between materials.
