  • Change letter spacing in a bitmap font
    I managed to solve it by generating a bitmap font with the Shoebox. It automatically trims every character in a font thus removing the empty space. This solution is far from the best, but unfortunately I didn't find any alternative for adjusting kerning (individual letter spacing). - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago

  • Finally found time trying Ian's way of modeling from Image planes. Here's test render. Scene still work in progress, but feedback always appreciated.
    If you are making a building facade you don't need completely flat textures. Regular pictures should do, and you can do perspective correction with something like Shoebox's texture ripper. Google images or StreetView work well enough for that, of course those images may be copyrighted in a way that you can't use them for comercial usage, but if you are just doing practice scenes for yourself it's perfectly fine. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
