Computer Key Head Tutorial

Recommended Posts

https://vimeo.com/332016532

[Beginner-Intermediate]  [Requires Mograph/Cloner Object]

In this tutorial, we’ll create this head made from computer keys, by utilizing the UVs and the Mograph Cloner Object. Just so you know, there is absolutely no modeling in this tutorial, the entire effect is achieved through UV mapping and texturing!

 

I’ll show you how to create new UVs for the head by using another object’s UVs, so that we can easily map the letters and numbers to the keys, as well as create the actual keys themselves by using a depth map.

 

There are many useful concepts in this tutorial, such as setting up the geometry, camera, and render settings for the depth map, using the Take System (Take System is not required) and Layers to streamline the render process, and using a Mograph Shader Effector to drive the animation of the keys.

 

We’ll also explore the Mograph Color Shader and the Colorizer to vary the colors of each computer key. It’s a fun tutorial with lots of cool ideas! So Let’s get started!

Or use your own model to follow along!

Thanks for sharing these and everything, but I do keep having to move them for you, so pls post future ones in the right place ! (resources / tutorials etc). Or maybe if you're doing a lot of them start your own blog here, so they all appear in one tidy section ?

 

Cheers
