Setting up a Skybox in Unity

Putting a sky into your game inside of Unity 3 is super simple. Click Edit> Render Settings in the upper menu. Choose a skybox material from your project folder and boom, done. Now if you don’t have any skyboxes, right click in your Project window and click Import Package and then choose Skyboxes. If your sky has weird white dotted lines in it, reimport your textures and materials. Thanks for reading!

Review: Mixamo

Mixamo. Animation in seconds. Free auto rigging with control rig. Character generating. All in your browser. This is the stuff we have all been waiting for and it is here.

Rigging can be such a pain, can’t it? I’ll tell you from experience it certainly can be. And even if it isn’t a pain, it still takes forever. You’ve got to create the rig, bind it, paint the skin weights, and more. But what if you could go from model to rigged model in about sixty seconds, and for free.

Review: Digital Tutors

Digital Tutors is fantastic. With thousands of high quality video tutorials, it is the best place for learning how to make computer graphics and digital art. It does not have much tutorials for any game engines other than Unity3D, but that is balanced by the fact that there are over a thousand tuts for Autodesk Maya alone. Tutorial files are also available.

One thing I really like about DT is that they don’t host their videos on sites like YouTube or Vimeo or whatever. They have the videos on their own site, digitaltutors.com. The videos are optionally full screen.

The cost? Well, you can watch some for free; in fact, there are whole courses that are free. But with a paid subscription, you can watch them all.

Overall, I think http://www.digitaltutors.com is one of the best sites I’ve stumbled across in a long time. Five stars.
