Hi, I come from /ic/. I was thinking of picking up 3D mainly because I am motivated by Custom Udon's works. How difficult would it be to make work similar to his and how long will it take to reach his level?

Shoulder rig
How do one achieves good shoulder deformation?
I'm trying to figure it out for a couple of days now but I don't know if I fail because of bad major idea of how it should all work or just because of bad bone placement and constraint influences. In this thread, we'll find out!

Watched this video
Couldn't understand anything cuz I'm an esl faggot and secondly, there are no rig nodes in blender.

So to get started we'll try to achieve at least the relaxed pose of the arm. We'll be thinking about arms raised after reaching the milestone of good looking arms hanging down, which normal riggers seem to achieve just with two bones, but whatever.
- deltoid obviously needs to slide down and to the side because that's how it works in real life. It is for this purpose that I made its topology denser so it can stretch well
- pectoral muscle shrinks down when you lower your arm. I think Stretch To constraint will be handy
- clavicle doesn't move until you raise your arm higher than 90 degrees so we'll skip that for now
- lateral muscle probably the same as pectoral
- scapula rotates inwards with the pivot point at the top near the vertebra

Here I will post my progress and experienced anons will chuckle at my struggles. Let's go.

I want to get better at blender, and so I practice, but I just pick up very tiny tips and hints here and there and never actually progress toward learning any specific thing.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a good guide that will tell me what exactly it is that i need to learn, in order, to be able to model what I want? I'm tired of watching random tutorial videos with no aim.

Annotation 2020-08-03 160412
i'm working on a retopo and i've encountered a problem. when i go to sculpt mode in blender, to smooth the topology of my model, it fails to smooth out the mesh in some places. i have to manually move vertices and then very gently smooth them out and it still doesn't look quite right. doesn't matter if i set deformation to surface or laplacian

actually even during retopo i have a problem with moving verts accurately. they snap to random places, sometimes they blow the fuck up and move in weird increments. my snapping is set to faces only. if my explanation doesn't make much sense i can record a video

Microfacet Fresnel Theory
It seems like most microfacet models including the disney model are wrong when it comes to fresnel. Normally fresnel is either considered from either only the view angle or only the light angle, and sometimes from both. Sometimes it may be considered per ray which is accurate for specular but not for diffuse. Sometimes it may be integrated for the specular which is wrong.

I've never seen anyone do the actual correct thing and consider fresnel for each individual incident ray on a microfacet surface. Remember diffuse lighting is absorbed and re-emitted light. The amount of absorbed light is physically determined by snells law. It must be accounted for every microfacet direction for each incident ray. This would be expensive to brute force, but it may be possible to integrate over a hemisphere for an incident ray considering a smooth NDF. But for a realistic non-smooth NDF it may be impossible. Very few renderers use realistic nonsmooth NDF's as well. I've seen it in one research paper.

What's the point of maintaining the distinction between Max and Maya? I know historically Maya and poweranimator before it was used for movies and had a better material system, renderman integration, scripting and all sorts of tools for movie production. And Max was used more for PC games and other low poly stuff. But nowadays they seem more or less the same thing with just different interfaces for boomers who couldn't adapt to a change.

I understand maintaining a distinction between autoCAD, since CAD is quite different from art. And back in the day of course it was two different companies, discreet and alias.

But why continue to have two different products doing the same thing under the same brand just with slight differences in featureset and GUI? Why not make a unified product that shares all features?

WTF is with the weird fucking obsession with Blender on this site? This website is spammed down with "hurrr durr blenda sux dixxx" comments from users who probably haven't been in the 3d industry for more than 2 years and think they're the shit because they use 3dsm without branching out to other programs.

If you're a person with an iq above that of a fucking potato you'd realize that you use whatever tool your need for the specific job you're doing. Any low iq chimplets start screaming "hurr durr blendfag!!!" in the comments I started with max and branched out to learning blender as well after a few years. I found that for general hard surface stuff I work a lot faster with the old 2.7x hot key layout than I do in max. But again, there's certain shit that max just does better although I prefer Blender for casual work outside of my job.

I've found that arrogance in general is a big problem in the 3d world and as you'll probably see some chimplet examples of in the comments below.

Sadly this isn't limited to /3/, all forums have problems with basedboy beta bitches acting like tough guys online. It's not hard to have a civil discussion online and if you're incapable of doing so then you have some type of mental disability which is why you lurk here.

Hello, my group is working on a game to rival Yandere Simulator. We're a casual amateur group trying to use this project as a learning experience for all of us. We're currently looking for people who can model and animate, or at least are eager to learn such while putting their skills to use.
There is no pressure or intense scrutiny on the work. It is an open learning environment and everyone is welcome. One of our major concepts is that we can triumph over Yandere Simulator with literally no prior experience.

If interested, please contact rednico6#1353 on Discord. Thank you and have a nice day :)

/3D Industry General/ - No hobbyists allowed
Le 3D memedustry general, only Emmy / Oscar / Game award-winning 3D pawns are allowed to write in this thread... Ok, this time everybody else working in the industry can write here as well, BUT NO HOBBYISTS ALLOWED.

Jokes aside, how is it working in the industry for you? Tell us something about your workplace. Me first:

>game industry
>props / environments
>about 6 months of experience, still a noob
>salary is actually really good

>I got into 3D somewhat late, I'm self taught and in mid 20s, I realized almost everyone is younger than me and has more experience than me, which is somewhat depressing, not gonna lie
>sometimes it does start feeling a bit like a grind and doing certain things like optimizing shit and unwrapping is pretty boring and mindless
>also, sometimes hands and fingers start hurting from all the mouse clicking

All in all, working in the industry is pretty much what I thought it would be, it isn't the best nor is it the worst. Honestly, I'm not sure if I imagine myself doing it for a long time though, I just happened to get a job opportunity without asking for it and have been doing 3D as a hobby. When the project is big, you're just a small barely significant wheel in a system, and I definitely feel replaceable. I guess it will be a nice feeling once I see my work in a finished game for the first time.

And again, realizing I'm maybe too old and seeing younger people with better skills than mine feels bad. That's what happens when you focus on a one thing in life I guess, I'm more of a generalist and pursued different interests in different times, though. Now I don't know if I should feel bad about it or not.

/UE/ - Unreal Engine General Thread
As always, I have a question about Unreal, so I might as well open a general again so the thread doesn't become pointless if the question is answered.

I have an already existing scene built in Blender, and I'm trying to find a way I can export the whole scene to Unreal. I don't want to just export a bunch of individual objects that I'd have to place manually again, because the scenes need to match 1 to 1 in both programs.

I've tested out new Send to Unreal blender addon:

But from what I see, it only exports individual assets + I'm not sure it even supports collections so it just exports everything into one messy folder.

I though that maybe I could parent everything in a scene to 1 object and import that, but idk if I misunderstood it, but this means the lightmap will be shared across the entire group? I got an error when trying to bake lighting.

Another idea I had was to just export everything individually, but with pivots at the world center, so when I drop them in the scene at (0,0,0) the objects will keep their world space. Maybe that could work, but I'm not sure if that's a good approach.

Ideally, you would have a live link where the whole scene updates in Unreal automatically, so if I modify an object or change its position, it will be updated in Unreal. That means I wouldn't have to keep importing new version again and again.

Any ideas?

math for perspective
hi im trying to draw and concept several things particularly turned tire wheels, drills, propeller, especially from lower angle and

i was convinced that in order to draw independent from sketching one must also rely not on sketching and directly addresses each lines, parts and contours and things related to it.

another one also said to mindfully deconstruct the subjects in my mind
into simple objects and math occurs much often to solve variety of problems even though i dont realy know where to start

so question is, given image belows, what went wrong with the picture realistically and how do you correct it or find corrections in order to know the right object and shape and sizes given the case again?

what elements are required to precise the subjects given?

i realize the question is probably abit too board since art math and visuals themselves are, very board,

but bear with me and have your shot, as the solution just have to be, precise enough and clear(nice lookin) enough to be used in different cases and occassions.

Grass in next gen games
What happened with grass in recent games that makes it look so good? Look at grass in TLOU2 or Ghost of Tsushima.

From what I can see, they finally switched to individual grass blades instead of cards (although maybe only for a tall grass), and I assume PCs are now powerful enough that we can afford an actual geo. This also means that now each individual grass blade can move by itself and you don't have a whole grass clump move like its glued together. It also reduces transparent space on cards which can also cause drastic FPS drops.

But is more geo really more efficient than cards at this point? I did some experiments with this in UE4 once, and maybe I didn't set it up correctly, but I haven't seen a big difference on larger scenes completely filled up with thick grass.

Reasons Why Blender Is Total Shit
1. You can't make selections through culled backface geometry
2. You can't use absolute units when scaling/extruding/insetting
3. You can't do proper edge offsetting without an add-on
4. You can't easily add a vertex to an existing edge (come on, I have to be wrong about this one)
5. You can't make a global material (non object-specific)
6. You can't enable backface culling in render preview

One month into dicking around with this pos, and I'm fucking angery. I'm hoping any of you can correct me on any of these points.

Also, gladly taking recs for a modeling solution geared towards hard surface and architecture that works well with substance designer material exports. Don't care if its not free as I'm tired of this freebie pajeet-tier spaghetti coded open source shit, I wanna program made by a white man.

Will blender eventually reach a point where even if is not the best tool in the industry will be good enough for like 99% task you will need in the industry?

Not the best, but like good enough for 99% of taks?

Installing Maya
Anyway I can get Maya onto my computer? I'm trying a copy from CGPeers, but it stops me at the license screen, and I can't do an offline install. And be damned if I'm going to pay the money they're asking for their dumb subscription model.

>but muh education license
Tried that, But the hoops to go through it is just as annoying, not helped by the fact that I have no idea who to put in for as "education institute".

>but muh blender
I have Blender already, but it's got issues. Then there's the whole "learn multiple programs" adage.

I taught myself to use Fusion360 about 5months ago, is this good progress for that amount of time?

I've done larger projects but this has probably been the most mechanically involved.

How the fuck do I get a job in gamedev?
>be me
>skilled in all aspects of developement
>3d, concept, coding, animation, game design, debugging
>applies for multiple job offers in the industry
>big and small jobs, some only looking for juniors
>gets rejected or ignored EVERY SINGLE FUCKING TIME
>looks at the team behind X studio that rejected said application
>cucked by a bunch of betas whose only experience in gamedev is small shitty ass gamejam phone games (ie pic related)

what am I doing wrong?
How is it possible that I am (seemingly) far more capable than half the people at some of these studios and yet they reject me?

The Perfect Storm for GPUs
>covid quarantine forces more normies into the "work from home" bandwagon
>a chunk of those either go into 3D, amateur game developing or mining causing the demand for GPUs to increase
>China trade war makes certain materials and parts more costly for the production and assembly of GPUs
>the mass production of PS5s and Xbox Xs will require biblical amounts of GDDR6 RAM, a component that is required to build virtually every GPU nowadays, causing the price of the component to skyrocket and the final price of GPUs to be 50% higher
tl;dr by the end of this year all graphic cards are going to cost 150% more

3d/graphics programming
Does anyone here do any graphics programming? I'm just getting into webgl (js+webgl directly, not threejs or pixiejs) and it's reeeally exciting (I know it's babby's first). I'd love to contribute to blender one day.

Also, anyone know much about job opportunities in this direction? Preferably not in videogames.

Is there 3D software with metric measuring easy and friendly like 123D or old alibre but free and not requiring internet connection to work?
123D is simple and efective for some jobs but too primitive and have lack of functions.
I tested like freecad and wings3d this is literally sabotage.

okay /3/, what is the ABSOLUTE easiest software you can think of that I could hop into right now and make something easy. Or at the very least, the most beginner friendly. You can make nice looking things in blender but it's such a fucking storm to a newcomer. Can't tell what the fuck anything is.
Everything else I've used is relatively simple or laid straight out with no confusion.

Maya? Blender? Please help
So the shitty 'art college' I graduated from 3 years ago let me have a license for Maya 2016, which I've used for a few projects since. Then one day, they finally realized that I don't go there anymore and cancelled my license.

My options currently are:
>learn blender

Blender has a learning curve that many people who were formally trained in Maya might have a hard time adapting to, even with their latest update. Also a lot of the same tools I've come to depend on in my workflow don't seem to be there or require convoluted steps that just seem so.. unappealing.
Also many scripts and plugins I've come to depend on, like Arnold and RenderMan and something called RapidRig all seem to be non-existent in Blender or have very little, if any, compatibility.

But piracy.. that's so messy. I've done contract work for some big companies and I don't wanna risk any of the shit I have to come about risk violating my NDA should I get some nasty malware. I've seen friends get their bank accounts hacked because they trusted Photoshop cracks off Pirate Bay, and that alone is enough to spook someone with something to lose such as myself.

Banging my head
>Quixel Bridge
>Try to import asset
Textures do this, I've checked the uv maps and all and the problem seems to be in the imported textures themselves. They somehow get imported partially, a fifth of them is visible.
Does ANYONE know ANYTHING that I can do to maybe get one step closer to solving this piece of shit problem? Thank you.

Any miniature STL repository out there?
Am broke, currently supporting several patrons, but can't really afford previous releases that cost 60$ like TitanForge, Asgard Rising etc. Is there any repository for paid STL files here on 4chan?

Also, looking for this model, it was deleted by the author some time ago (it was free), anyone has it saved?

Can you use Skyrim mods as free assets?
Literally millions of armor sets and fully rigged bodies and faces and monsters and decoration
what's stopping people from using those unlicensed assets? the format they're saved as?
I know companies can't do anything about their assets being used in modding, so taking, let's say, tracer's model from a Skyrim mod and using it in a licensed project is illegal, but what about unlicensed stuff used in skyrim mods? or any mods?

Why is the navigation in blender so fucking shit. I’m trying to make a level right now and it’s a fucking nightmare. The zoom is always too fast or too slow. The pan rotation is always going through walls and rotates the camera to another side of the fucking map. It uses this thing called a dolly point which means you pivot around a point in space in front of the camera. Why cant they just have the camera itself rotate? I’ve already looked through settings and guides and it doesn’t look like there’s an easy way to change it.
