a few beginners questions

Recommended Posts


Hi, I have a few hopefully simple questions.

And uhm, please answer them as if I'm dumb :roll:.


1. Why are free models I've downloaded all black? Adding lights doesn't seem to help either.


2. How can I make: a (grouped) car with realistic headlights? This would incloude beams, a glow, and lensflare.


That's it for now, many thanks :)


Kind regards

If your models are black then the poly's are probably flipped inside out. Switch to "Polygon" selection mode, window select the entire model and then click the "Flip" button. See screenshot below.


Your second question is not so simple to answer. For that you will need to follow a lighting tutorial. You can find many here: 3ds max car headlights
