gMax Props

Exclusive Tip by Milton Shupe on Monday , 28 April 2003

Here is a complete set of props (still, slow, and blurred) with animation and textures for a 3-bladed piston engine aircraft. Prop circle is 93". You may use them or learn from them as you wish. I hope it helps.

If you analyze the blurred mesh, you will see I did it with one 120 degree mesh and one blade of texture. Then I used the array feature to complete the 360 degrees. After that, I simply cloned for the second engine, and the VC. The slow versions are the same with different opacity settings for the blades. The spinners are animated in each set.
