Ok, so I watched the GGXrd GDC talk and It seems I'm the only one in this board who understood what they were talking about.

Since there's a lot of discussions about such lecture I think I can summarize the video.
Maybe we can discuss here how to acomplish every step on blender and godot or unity.

It seems that the most dificult and important part over traditional cell shading is a texture that controls the threshold of the cell shader.

Dunno how to implement this on blender, maybe someone can help there.
This texture is like 70% of the work.

Later they use an individual vector light point for every character, they didn't used universal/global lightning.
Last step for the anime perfect shader is normal editing to fix areas like the face.

The colors are done using a basic albedo/specular texture and another tint texture that effects the shadows.
They also used an inverted hull for the outline of the mesh.
For the interior lines they aligned their UV to create such lines using the texture, but taked care to make every interior line to be a perfect horizontal or vertical line, to avoid antialising and jaged lines.

And last, their animation seemed to be not interpolated.

So far their tech doesn't seem ultra revolutionary except for their threshold texture.

Does anyone 3D model low poly models anymore?
male_muscles.jpgFF8D65A8-A30C-4E4D-B412-3B808AB1D9D2Zoom
I see all these annoying sculpting tutorials for sculptris, mudbox, or Zbursh and it makes me mad. The sculptards have taken over the the tutorial section of any website. Plus sculpts don't animate that well. They need to have their topology corrected.

But enough of that whining. Does anyone still low poly models characters like an OG? Around the 4k-10k tri region.

Converting models in older GTA games
t
noob here. I am curious how hard would it be to convert character models from GTA SA to Vice City and III. What steps should I take? All of them are on the same engine, although GTA 3 doesn't have solid skeleton and therefore you can rip off your opponent's legs,arms etc. In later releases it's you can only decapitate them so I think it'll be easier to convert form SA to VC than from SA to III.

Creating A Lazy Game
bloodymaryinfinity
What does it take to create a relatively simple "game" using Blender and something like Unreal Engine? My general concept would be heavy equipment digging and filling up trucks. Low moving parts, basic movements, probably no human characters. Since the concept is so simple I want to make sure the environment looks good, a la Red Dead Redemption or something, and I want to make sure the dirt actually looks and acts like real dirt when you manipulate it.

I have a decent amount of experience with Blender, and I have Quixel available, but I'm not familiar with what it actually takes to get nice looking models into a game engine where you can then control them and add sound etc.

Also, any bright ideas when it comes to soil simulation? Most of the stuff I've seen in past games looks like garbage, except maybe Mud Runner.

I have been using Unfold3D for a while, greatest UV mapping tool out there.

I have had a HDD failure recently and had to reinstall everything. I went with the most recent version of Unfold3D

How can I describe this?
From being the biggest time saver imaginable in 3 years of development Unfold3D has become practically a useless piece of shit. I had to scour everywhere to look for the version I've had from 3 years back.

How can something like this even happen? They completely destroyed the program. They changed the navigation, they changed the user interface, they have hidden essential tools - basic stuff like select loop and whatnot, all time saving tool which worked perfectly now are useless, you can't even deselect edges, you can't even select UV island in the 2D viewport properly if they're too close together.

Each tiny change they've implemented made the program worse and worse. It's as if they did it on purpose.

Artifacting
This may be fucking stupid to ask, but I don't know where to look.

I use a lot of 3D texture resources in my work, though my work is 2D, I've found ways to make use of normal maps and various other maps to make 2D textures appear to have been rendered in 3D software, which is how I use them.

However, my current project is a little bit backwards and I'm trying to create a 2D map that similarly looks as if it were rendered in 3D. To this end, I've created a black and white heightmap which I was just converting to a normalmap in Photoshop, and then converting that into shadow and detail information.

The problem is, my project is about 32k x 32k pixels and Photoshop has issues creating normal maps at this size. Is there any software that is designed for, or can handle, creating normals at that resolution without artifacting and whatnot? Even better if it has the ability to tweak height information and such.

Or maybe this doesn't exist and I'm just stuck with the tools I have. That works too I guess.

Pic related, it's what I'd like to get rid of.

D-representation-of-part-of-the-NOESY-spectrum-in-Figure-4-of-mixed-micelles-of-PNIPAAM
Hi guys,
I'd like to make something like pic related in blender using nurbs and python.
I've already made a script to generate a pure triangular mesh from a dataset consisting in a rectangular matrix. The coordinates in the matrix represents azis x and y and the value are the z. I use this function:

mesh.from_pydata(verts, [], faces)

I'd like to do the same thing but with nurbs, the idea is to use my dataset to define control points of the nurbs.
I'm struggling to find some documentation about this and I'm starting to doubt it's possible. I'm not even sure if making hundreds, of thousand, of control points could be even possible on blender or on a consumer pc.

Any help?

Hey guys, sorry for newbie question may be mistakes. For some time I began to study graphic design, studied and practiced on posters, since in some way they limit you, but at the same time they give you the opportunity to experiment and try new things as you study the programs and the very basics of design. Now I decided to go to 3D, but ran into a problem. Need a similar specific format and genre in which you can improve and "Grind" skill. The first thing that came to mind was Low Poly, but this direction is not quite close to me. Give advice in what direction to develop in order to grind a skill? Spend a lot of time behind the workflow, and at the same time most effectively convert time into skill and experience.

My goal is to make content as quickly as I can and hopefully gradually increase the quality as my skills and techniques improve.

I want to be able to 3D print them or create a CAM file after.
So far I have experience in Inventor and SolidWorks and I am curious how software, which are not usually used for mechanical parts, are useful for such tasks.

Thanks.

Why 3D can't look as good as 2D.

It always looks like a shitty garbage imitation of 2D.

Now that's a lifehack if I've ever seen one, why didn't I think of this sooner
TLDR; don't become a producer if you enjoy music

What's the purpose of drivers in blender?

I know they help control other object properties, to make nice GUI controls for the rig.

But do u need them for personal rigs you make yourself?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcHaQRKuQqo

i'm very interested in what synty studios is doing with their low poly assets. it's interesting how much emphasis they put on textures instead of using just basic colors. i have on of their assets but i can't quite figure out if i should use the same approach in my own project. it looks like they're using multiple texture atlases per asset pack. does it really make sense to use those instead of individual textures? how are they even able to manage so many models that share the same uv space? help me understand it because i need to know

Autodesk are Retards
adsklogo
So tried to open up Maya 2019 today, and Autodesk decided "nope! Your activation code's not valid!"

Is Autodesk finally cracking down on the pirates? Or do I need to change my code? if former, then I guess I'll just stick with Blender because fuck if I'm getting their education license unless someone can convince me otherwise.

If latter, how do I do it?

I want to buy new budget GPU for blender. Right now I came to 2 options: GeForce GTX 1650 or Radeon RX 570.
RX is better at benchmarks test but I heard blender has problems with compatibility on some GPUs and I really don't want to buy shit that won't work.
What should I buy? Maybe you have better offers

3D "engineering" parts for sell
rich-people-showers-illustrations-artxauroraxart-thumb290
I've got 0 experience in the 3d industry however I'm familiar with machining (I am not one) and I know how to use Solidworks, I consider myself fairly adept at it when it comes to making simple to somewhat complex parts. Solidworks is the only thing i know how to use, I really don't know any other software like Blender or Maya. I cannot afford to buy a certification exam. However, I was thinking about making 3d models of things people would want, stuff that requires measuring and whatnot, not just art stuff. Perhaps objects that people could 3d print at home or maybe furniture blueprints that a DIY-carpenter can use to make it himself at home. Does this seem like a viable option to make money? My current job is basically menial labor (I unfortunately work serving rich assholes) so I want a way out of this doing something I like but I don't have an education either so I must learn everything on my own. I was thinking of maybe opening up an online store and have my 3d models/blueprints up for sale, has anyone done something like this before? What are your thoughts?

I am not looking to make a bunch of money just places I could possible sell some simple assets that I could whip up.
Is there a market for that or is all pretty much covered by big companies?
What is actually a good way of making a bit of money from this?

What's with all those "3D industry professionals" making complete fools out of themselves?
lowpolymask
>instead of criticizing artwork using their knowledge and experience, it's just "lol u suk", "xD hes using [insert software]
>calling Blender users "Blendlets" when the -let suffix actually just implies that their skills of using the software are insufficient (as "manlet" means a short guy)
>spending way more time shitting on software than actually being creative
All this feels like some dumb falseflag by a handful bored NEETs to make 3D artists look like total idiots. No professional would waste time acting utterly retarded to this extent, especially not artists who're actually active in the industry where time is literally money.

But her hair's a different color and her necklace is messed up.... I'm not entirely sure if this is fixable or what, I've just been trying to make it look like she's topless but is there a better way of getting these models out or fixing this mess?

For the record I used Project64's lemd3d9.dll to get her out...
