3D HURRICANE MODEL -- 3D飓风模型
Build a 3D hurricane model through satellite images by 3ds Max.
Go to the [National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service(NESDIS)] Check one of the latest hurricane data. I choose to use the Hurricane Wutip as the example.
Open the link under
HTML5 Image Loop->
Visible. Then screenshot or download the sequence of images.
Process these images through Photoshop. You can record an action first, then process all the images.
a. Crop out the bottom information->
b. change image to black and white->
c. adjust levels to align front and end of graph->
d. in image size, change the resolution to 300 ppi and resample as bicubic smoother(enlargement)->
e. filter choose reduce noise under noise. adjust the parameter to make image looks soft
Open 3ds Max, under object, create a
plane, and adjust its parameters'
width segsto 100 by 100 or 200 by 200.
Press material shortcut
Compact Material Editor. Choose one default material, then apply
diffuse. The bitmap choose the first ordered image you just processed. Check the
Sequencebox, then open. Assign this material to the plane, and press
Show Shaded Material in Viewport
Switch the pannel from

strengthto a reasonable heigh. Finally, adjust the
Blurto make the model smooth.
Right now, you can drag the
