  • Build an old city

    Hi, I'm a young programmer but new with graphic design.
    I would build an old city 3d virtual environment for a museum so that you can walk through the streets of the old city.
    I have a lot of photos of the city.

    1. Which software to use? Better if free and with visual toolbars to build the model (I've read on the web about IRRLICHT, but it seems to need just coding).

    2. Are there tools that help to create a 3d model from photos?

    Thanks.

    I would probably suggest Maya for a 3D walk around/fly through of any kind of city.

        The article posted is no more available.
        So you say Maya will be the best choice? Nothing freeware?
        What about creating the model using the photos?

          the article may be dead, but did you read through the thread? Tyger offers some very helpful explanations in his posts, as do many others.

            If your biggest concern is the cost you could look at blender, I don't know much in regards to 3d applications as far as capabilities are concerned, but it's probably the closest to 3ds or Maya in terms of capability you will find for free.

                I think it is good and has potential. My first impresion was that I didnt immediatly see what the word was in green because the type is too moved around and not too readable. I also agree there is too...

                Interesting. If all your work is at this level, I'd say it is good enough to get into design school. Did they give you reasons why you didn't make it?

                Hi Wayne, when you say background design, are you meaning the white text on red pattern in the background?

                Not a bad start, and definitely a fair place where you can improve and grow.

                The illustrations are a good start, I'm sure if you worked on them some more, you could give them a bit more refining....
