3D Chair Model and Animation

3D Chair Model and Animation

“3D modeled chair animated to fall using Maya software for a video game art college course.”

The goals of this project were to model and animate a 3D prop using Maya software.
The process involved providing an orthographic front and side photo of a chair. The photos were cropped and aligned. They were then assigned to a shoebox plane layout where they were used as reference. The chair was formed from multiple polygons shaped, molded, duplicated, and merged. The texture was added using Photoshop and UV mapping. Finally, the chair was animated to fall in Maya using rigging and rotation methods.
