(first, sorry for my english, it’s not my native language)
I’m working in 3d archviz on 3dsmax and vray/corona for 8-9 years and I would like to try unreal engine.
I’ve seen a lot of villa, houses, interior projects but rarely exterior buildings.
So, here is my questions :
I would like to try UE with one building archviz.
8 floors, 60 meter long for 20 meter wide. It’s not a big building but I have something like, 300-400 objects for only the exterior walls.
What’s the best way to work with all thoses box ?
Export all objects as single object (merge all), export each floor as single object (so, 8 objects exported) or export each object as single object ?
If I have to setup 300-400 lightmap resolution in UE one by one,… well, gonna be a long day. And if the objects are all merged, the lightmap resolution won’t be good.
Same question about the other object in the scene, windows frames, glass, railing, sils, … attach with each other, attach by floor, … ?
If I was working on a house, I will make it one by one, but here, with a larger building, I don’t know what the do.
Any advices ?
