View Full Version : More PhysXLab tutorials: Fracture Maps and Multi FBX import

12-07-11, 02:30 PM
NVIDIA has uploaded new portion of video tutorials, covering various aspects of APEX Destruction (http://physxinfo.com/wiki/APEX_Destruction) authoring process using PhysXLab (http://physxinfo.com/wiki/PhysXLab) tool.

First set of tutorials is explaining creation and usage of Fracture Maps ?? simple black-and-white images, that can be used to specify fracturing pattern for cut-out fracturing mode.

Second set of tutorials is showcasing multi-FBX import feature. If multiple parts of one object are imported at once, PhysXLab will recognize them as ??depth 1? chunks ?? thus, it is possible to pre-fracture asset in whatever manner you need (with Voronoi fracture, for example) before using it in PhysXLab.
