Low Poly Modeling
Of the various 3D modeling techniques, low-poly modeling is the one that is perhaps most widely used in game production. Low-poly modeling poses a challenge to the modeler because models in a scene must not exceed a specific maximum polygon count. An environment for a video game with too many polygons can overburden the game engine, making gameplay unacceptably slow. This lesson covers techniques for properly building a game environment.
