3d modeling help

Im gonna start making my own 3d models for UT. i always see these amazing characters for the new ut and when i look at stuff made today by modelers its not nearly as good. is it because of the new engine or is it skill?
also (this is kinda off the topic) i saw the final fantasy 12 clips and pics and saw the amazing detail and wondered if that could be made in maya or 3d studio max?if so can it be put into the unreal engine?
is there a difference between CG and 3d models?

sorry if this a stupid question.

Its possible, depend on what software you have though, probably need 3ds max or maya, and probably some future version of Epics plugin ActorX.

You also would need to know how to create the high polygon model mesh, the low polygon model mesh, and finally how to process the high poly mesh into a vitual displacement map texture. Apart from that these super detailed models only work for UT2007.

A good modeler will be able to create excellent charasters out low detailed models after some practice!

wow! thnx dude that helped. so all i need to do is a get an insane amount of skill and then build 2 of the same mesh. uhhhhh..... does anyone have any links where i can find tutorials.. also ive looked at models made by ut players and they dont look as good as the default characters... do u think that the new engine will have easier rendering and shader tools?
