One of the reasons I have been trying to learn Maya is so I can make 2.5d backgrounds for my projects. I have been playing around with this a lot in the last few weeks with little success. I usually run into trouble with transperancy and alpha channel issues on my projection maps. Nothing ever seems to work but I’ll get it here at some point.
Above I have posted a rough background plate of the great norther pass overlooking the city of Wu which I hope to use for this, my second attempt at 2.5d. I painted everything in layers. There are about 20 in all. So I should have a lot to play with. I’ll post my progress as I go.
