The CRYENGINE Art Asset Creation Guide is a comprehensive resource for helping artists, animators, and audio engineers to design and export assets to CRYENGINE.

As part of an ongoing documentation merger process, the articles under this section have been moved to the Sandbox Manual. That section will soon be generalized to the "CRYENGINE Manual".


Getting Started with Asset Creation
This topic provides an overview of the art pipeline, file types, Resource Compiler, and creation guidelines, as well as the further preparation and optimization of art assets.



Creating New Assets For CRYENGINE

Static (cgf)
Learn how to model static objects, breakable assets, vegetation, vehicles, and weapons.
