photo_scan_model
Just how prevalent is photogrammetry in the industry currently? I've only worked in the industry for ~2 years and have noticed it show up in my work and job postings. Of course it's something that I was never taught in University, let alone a simple photography class, but it seems like a ton of studios are now using scanned models.

So what gives /3/? Should i put down my polygonal modeling and pick up a DSLR?

Honey Select
I don't know if this is the best place to ask, but I need help with Honey Select. I got everything downloaded and working, but I can't get the H-Scenes to work. Is it related to me using a laptop and a touchpad? They all say use scroll to start, but scrolling for me seems to do nothing. I can't scroll elsewhere in the program up and down, but I can seem to scroll right and left. If all else fails is there a way for me to rebind scroll?

Can anyone explain me why UV master in zbrush doesnt work correctly in this head?
I have several polygroups, I even used the control painting for avoiding seams in the middle of the face but, no matter how many different things I try I always end up getting one huge seam in the middle of the face.

Any tips or solutions? Im only using zbrush, so I cant do the uv mapping in other software at this moment

Impossible to model game characters?
images
So i did a few 3D likeness in zbrush before, and everything went fine as fuck. So a new project arrived, and now its Kerrigan time. Easy right? Google images, pint, artstation, youtube, etc. I can see her face well, i can see all the planes, i can see side view, left/right profile view, front view, get ref's from Blizzards cinematics, GG nice...

Well... this monstrosity woman is making everything hard. Im doing everything and still no sign for a good likeness of her. 5 days working straight and not a single good face of her is showing up. Im walking in circles and dont know why.

Im photoshoping my refs, saturating the colors, flipping horizontal, drawing to see new stuff that im not catching at first, but not even these techniquies is helping me out.

Im beginning to think, maybe my refs are all dirty, with perspectives that i cant emulate/do the same inside zbrush?? Maybe what i see in cinematics is not exacly what i see?

TL;DR
Tips to model likeness of a video game character, cuz im doing everything and nothing seens to be working.

Spider-Man and Venom vs. Carnage
SpidermanWallpaperLQspidermanultimate7
Here is an animation I made, it features a Spider-Man and Venom team up against Carnage, as well as a fight between Venom and Carnage at the start. Everything you see I created entirely on my own from scratch, all modeling, rigging, lighting, animation, ncloth, simulations and rendering. The project was rendered using Vray. The voice of Spider-Man and Carnage are my own and my brother voices Venom. Hope you all like it!

Mayafag here. I was wondering what the pros and cons are between beveling and using edge loops to mesh smooth. I've looked online but there's too much conflicting info to be useful and I need to figure this out for a production I'm doing.

So far I know that bevels are good for hard edge models and inorganic shit, but mesh smooth is better for characters and things with curves. What I'm stuck on is if there are any other benefits, like maybe lower poly count with bevels or something. Thanks in advance, lads

How many polygons in a game/movie/scene?
9c1520015e6f64873fbb34ea7bd4df90
Is there a reference anywhere?

Like per year/console/GPU/etc...

If you were making something for PS5 or say a high-end GPU of today how many polys would you have per character in a 3D fighting game like DOA with/without clothes?

I think for AAA at present we are looking at 100-150k per animated character with clothes, but that's kind of a guess. I'm not versed in the underground 3D waifu modding community.

Are we going to start seeing DAZ characters in games now or just high polygon models with wasted polys and shit animation?

Soon after, however, their wives petitioned the various state governments to simply make marrying girls illegal, and thus the 1877 colt gatling gun had made it's mark, and then-some.

Best morphable models for game dev?
charactereditor
Gonna try to develop a game and want to add a character editor similar to pic.

What are the best ways to do this? Where do I get the base assets?

Exported Daz models don't have the necessary blendshapes.
Iclone7 might be interesting, but have not tried it yet.
Morph3d is outdated.
UMA looks like crap.

Would I even use a model generator, which exports a base model with blendshapes which I can modify in game?
Or should I get dedicated models? (but those most often have different rigs and animations becomes a pain in the ass)

What's the best way to do it?

Should I just knuckle up and go to art school? At the end of the day it seems so much easier to attend an educational course on 3D modeling and animating than scavenging the internet for hours at a time trying to find duct-tape solutions for trivial problems. Especially in a class with real like-minded people you can actually interact with humans to discuss how to accomplish something.

Has anyone here attended art school, or at the very least took a paid course?

To Ngon or not to Ngon?
a-g-r-e-toon-209
Pretty much every instructor I had kept telling the class "No Ngons!, Ever!" so when I model I try to avoid them and spend a lot of time cleaning up my model to avoid them.

But when I see a lot of professional modellers like Vitaly Bulgarov for example, I see Ngons all over the place and their renders look perfect.

So is it really necessary to avoid them at all costs, or does it really matter?

Pic for example, great model but filled with Ngons.

Back in August I was posting some wanted ads for for a character sculpting job. I got a number of good bites, and ultimately ended up hiring someone from here.

They wrote their own contract to have a project due date of November 1st.

They finished sculpting the character at the start of October, and only needed to tool it for articulation. But I haven't heard anything from them since.

Should I go ahead and file a PP claim, or assume he was dyslexic and wait until January 11th?

I can't imagine why anyone would finish the job like 90%, then ghost before getting the last half of their payment.

My knee-jerk about having been fucked over too many times is fighting with my "maybe he's in a shitty spot and a PP claim is the last thing he needs"

Why is this board so bitey, insecure and defensive towards anything Blender?
1554424935676
With all your _instant_ jumping on literally every Blender topic that pops up, making you spew all those snarky jokes and bitterness, you seem like some dog that feels threatened and gets all bitey.
There's absolutely no reason to get so defensive about all this. The industry standards won't change over night and Blender can't give studios support which is absolutely imperative for said professional studios.
It's great for what it is but it still lacks in certain workflows that are common in the professional areas and as I said, no support and you can't google shit all the time when something doesn't work.
It's great for people who want to test the waters of 3D modelling just have another option to do this without the hassle of licenses and all that. Occasional freelancers also have this option but both are no danger for the whole industry. I don't see how this whole situation justifies this impotent rage you see in literally every thread.

IK is useless garbage.

I've tried to animate with IK, is just useless garbage that makes the animation just more complex for not real reason.

IK is garbage that is pushed by retards who fell for academia.

Photographer derryl here. Quick tip for sculpting in blender. Most professional photos have pretty reliable metadata. Look at the focal length used on the photo camera from the metadata on the file and use this to setup your camera in blender to get an exact reference camera.

Wow!

Photogrammetry
photogrammetry-tips-header
>What Software you use
>Tips that you wish that you knew at the start
>How do you see Photogrammetry?
>Best Software?

Honestly been trying to learn photogrammetry using multiple different software. I'm using my note 10+ to take photos at 4k with a tight apeture. My results have been not too great as I don't have a proper set up.

Software I've tried: Meshroom, ReCap, Metashape

Out of all of these I reccomend Meshroom for beginners and hobbists. If you are fine spending money to AutoJew then get ReCap.

If you were wondering about the quality of the 3d scans using the Note 10+ its not bad and honestly a very good alternative if you have the phone.

Where to look for commission/job
6859
I usually make low poly anime stuff. For texturing i do solid colors only with toon shaders slapped for shadows. I have general knowledge compressing textures in one UV map and using UV offsets to change facial textures and i can do full body rigging too.
At most i would be fine in doing this for 30-60$ since i live in a third world country. Am i undervaluing myself? if so what are the rates usually?
I post in /wip/ sometimes. I just want to try to make some side money while im doing college and i do have time since im doing trimesters.
This is a serious thread. I just want to help off lessen the burden in my college fees somehow since someone is helping with my tuition.

aces_header-1-1300x650
So there's been a fair bit of ACES shilling on my twitter feed recently. The comparisons b/w using using an ACEScg rendering space vs using an SRGB rendering space are pretty compelling, and ACES as a whole seems like a much more sensible, future-proof idea.

Has anyone made the move to rendering in ACES? I'm on Maya + Arnold so the switch, on paper, seems pretty painless, but I'm assuming Arnold will just handle moving non-ACES images into ACES when creating tx files - am I right about this or will I have to manually move things over to ACES via something like Nuke / Fusion?

Is there a lightweight model viewer for Windows that I can use to show friends/clients?

Something like FBX Review but that's too simple and has no shading, and Marmoset on the other hand requires setup you can't just load any random model from your collection.

Pic related is the Windows 'View 3D' app from 2017. Unfortunately they removed it for some unknown fucking reason and replaced it with VR / Mixed reality bullshit.

What improves preformance more in Davinci Resolve: Having more memory or Higher memory frequency. For context, making a pc build with new AMD Threadripper 3970X (32 cores) wondering if having 64 gigabytes of ddr4 5000mhz would be better than having 128 gigs of ddr4 4600mhz ram. Also heard that ddr4 3600 works best on zen 2 chips. What do yall think. Also can yall recommend what would be the best graphic card for the system. I do not care about money to preformance ratio. Thanks to all who help.

I don,t know if it's the right place to post this but i'm making the round in hopes of finding someone who knows what they are doing more than me.

I want to mod Hilda into Pokemon ORAS

I ripped the games, decrypted it, got the proper BCH file. Ran it through Ohana3ds, exported each object into OBJ, check their Vert and Polys limit.

Replaced each of them by assets ripped from Pokemon Master, smooth and reduce as needed in Maya to get under the Vert/polys limits.

Then I took the unmodified BCH, ran it through Spica, export as a DAE, Import it in 3DS Max (I prefer Maya but 3DS max can export in SMD which is what spica can import).

In 3DS max I imported every OBJ previously made, remove the original part, Skin the OBJ to the bones, then export as SMD.

Open spica without any file, merge the SMD and texture save as dec_20.BCH, Compress with Garctool. Rebuilt the .3ds file and open it in Citra

I worked for a couple of objects so far but the biggest piece don't work (main pony tail part and the cap)

I know that they are under the Vert and Polys limit of the original mode and they are both under the Vert and poly of each of the original meshes but they keep crashing the game when they are loaded.

But then I saw other mods for ORAS that disregard the Vert and Polys limit and i'm lost as to what to do?

If anyone has any experience i'd be happy to receive some guidance.

I fucking hate 3D. I've been doing this shit for almost 8 years and it never ever gets less time-consuming. I'm working on a game on my own, I'm not doing this as a passion but as a necessity (I refuse to use pre-made assets aside from the photoscanned nature stuff).

The worst things are the small props. These should take little to no time to make but they are often the most time consuming assets to create. Let's say I need some assets for a pantry, or a storage room. That would mean that I (obviously) have to model them one by one (games require tons of them nowdays to make scenes look believable), bake them, create textures from scratch and also do some freaking graphic design in illustrator for each and every brand (if I'm modeling soda cans, food cans, cleaner bottles and whatnot).

That means it takes weeks and months just to model that kind of stuff, and the sad thing is that players won't even notice them. They'll enter the room, will search it for 5 seconds and will leave.

I'm so fucking TIRED holy shit. I can understand why many indie devs are going back to older/simpler aesthetics. Games aren't art displays and in the end it doesn't matter all that much.

Thank you for listening.

hello /3/ I never post here, um do any of you's use rhino/grashopper? I want to get a plugin that can generate a bunch of mesh's based on one original mesh but the ones generated are modified by some parameter, like a plugin the would take a square mesh, for example, then the plugin gets the user to specify how to square would be changed, ie remove/add some volume from the square, and then the plugin would generate a bunch of new squares the have the removed/added volumes in different places, basically I want to do what the gif ive posted is doing but instead of instead of it happening to the same model I want to have an array of all the versions generated, hopefully this made some sense

Any decent 3D smut tutorials?

Anything from remodeling a sfw character into a nsfw version to animating stuff. Any program goes (but preferably blender). I found a lot of stuff online but it was all mediocre and there were no actual video tutorials (except for SFM lol), only text. And by the looks of the "best" animations it seems that there are barely any decent artists working in this area. Is it really so unpopular?

I hate to make a thread for one measly question but I need to an answer.

I’m trying to weight paint in 3DS Max but for some reason my vertices don’t stick with the abs. Effect that I assign them. Example, a vertice has a weight of 1.0. I change it to .5. It reverts to 1.0 soon as I click off. Not sure why and I’m kind of desperate, I don’t want to unlearn this program for a minor issue like this.

3D sculpting is useless for game models that aren't muh realistic AAA meme garbage.

It's simpler and faster to just traditionally model an anime wifu girl using vertex modelling, which most are already low poly enough to be just made by hand.

I'm not saying zbrush has not place in realistic models, just that is irrelevant for anime girl 3D models for videogames.

Why do most blender tutorials suck such major ass? Even the "good" tutorials don't follow the industry protocols for how you should model/texture something.

I've been using blender since 2014 and most of the useful techniques I found were either found by watching 3dsmax/Maya tutorials or through scouring forums. Whilst the 3dsmax tutorials are good they're just so limited in number, the only really good one you'll find is Arrimus3d.

It's almost like talented artists don't want to share their secrets, which sure it's understandable it's still a sort of dickish move in my opinion. Then again I don't work with 3d I only do it as a hobby next to my main job, but still if I was in better health and had more free time I'd make tutorials all day long.
