To celebrate our love for Star Wars we are giving away a sweet collection of 3D models that we built so you can learn to create your own visual effects! Our goal is to show you tips for Lighting, Rigging and animating so you can learn to create exciting visual FX too!
These are not just some piece of junk models, these models are HD quality with detailed 4K textures! Plus they render fast inside Element 3D! How fast? Fast enough for you!
We had a blast creating this collection and we hope you will have fun playing with these models too!
Just to be clear, we do not mean to imply any Star Wars endorsement or sponsorship, Star Wars was a huge inspiration to my visual FX education and we know it has inspired many others to learn about visual FX.
Note: All scenes rendered inside Element 3D V2

Included Models: OBJ with DDS Textures and optional JPG files!

Now load OBJ models directly into FCPX!
FCPX3D Model 1.0 from Pixel Film Studios™ allows Final Cut Pro X users to upload and control 3D objects in FCPX. With Object and Environment controls, users can customize the texture, lighting, background and reflection of their 3D model without ever having to open another software.
3D OBJECTS IN FCPX!
FCPX3D Model was professionally designed by the team at Pixel Film Studios™ for FCPX! Users can simply drag-and-drop a Model layer into the timeline and fill it with an OBJ file.
FCPX3D Model contains easy-to-use controls in the Final Cut Pro X Inspector that allow editors to customize their object, environment, and lighting without ever having to open another 3D software!
3 OBJECTS, 1 ENVIRONMENT
With FCPX3D Model, users can load up to 3 objects into a single environment in FCPX. Once uploaded, these objects will be able to reflect or even cast shadows on one another in real time.
ADD TEXTURES AND REFLECTIONS
Final Cut Pro X users can add realistic textures to their models by applying normal, diffusion, specular, reflection and opacity maps to their objects. FCPX3D Model supports basic MTL files.
Users can also remove the texture entirely to create a wireframe or point frame rendering of their 3D model.
Create a 360° viewing experience by adding an HDRI photosphere environment. With an HDRI background, users can move and pivot in any direction without running into any edges or seams. Also, if the Object is reflective, it will interact with the environment.
CONTROL THE LIGHTING
Users can move the light sources around in 3D space and watch as their 3D object reacts in real-time.
Once the lights and environment are in place, editors can adjust the reflection and shadow parameters to help blend their model into the scene, seamlessly.

OK– I’m mainly a mac guy. You know…Final Cut, Motion, etc– with the occasional use of Photoshop. I read on another forum about Adobe Marketplace (yeah– welcome to 2010!) and saw that they have a wonderful forum of feedback and tools (free or otherwise). So here’s a link to over 133 pages (at five items per page) of Photoshop brushes, shapes, and textures for your video or photo projects…
And while you’re there…check out all 23 pages of fine Powerpoint templates too:
