How to Make 3D Video Game Models

A 3d Model is a three-dimensional object you put into a video game. The most common model is that of the player in the game. But it can also be almost anything else you can imagine. Here is an overview of how you make 3D models for video games.

When you make a video game most of the design is done the same way an architect would design a city or a building. It is all very static. You define the shapes of the objects then you insert textures and colors. But this is just the static world that everything happens inside.

A 3D Model in Blender

The real adventure of a video game comes when the models are inserted into the game. And if you are learning how to make a video game using some of the more common software like Reality Factory you don't have a whole lot of options for making models. This is where 3D modeling software comes in.

To Make a 3D Model you need some 3D modeling software

There are many different modeling software applications and most of them are very suitable for making models for games. Some of the more popular packages are:

Maya - A high end 3d modeling package, which is used by professionals and often, used to make movies. It also has a scaled down version which is more affordable.

3Ds Max - Another high end modeling package that is very popular within the game making industry.

Lightwave - This is a professional package at a reasonable cost. If you are serious about 3d modeling this is a good option.

Blender - This is a free open source software package that has some amazing abilities. If you have no budget this is the way to go.

Milkshape 3D - Very inexpensive and easy to use 3d modeling package. They have a nice 30-day free trial period which gives you then chance to learn and test before you buy.
