Lucas Morgan has updated his procedural rock generation script for Maya, adding a retopologize function, which will create more refined geometry which will be more adapted for sculpting and displacements providing even sized faces with high shape retention.
a major addition of a retopology feature for retopologizing the rock geometry after it is generated
Lucas does note that this is a “pseudo” retopology system, basically laying the groundwork for a fully functional retopology tools in the future. The important condition is to create some degree of evenly sized faces while retaining the rocks initial shape, and this does a great job of that.
If you recall from a previous post, the The 1 Click Procedural Rock Generator for Maya will generate unique rocks and stalagmites in seconds with a procedural tool set, and here Lucas runs through the new feature and demonstrates how the various parameters of the scripts’s new Retopologize Function operate.
