hey all, I've been doodling all my life and resently got into 3d in zbrush and learning animation. But i need some clarity or direction, what programs do i need to learn to create a simple scene and polish it to look like something close to hotel Transylvania or their company ? lol thanks
Any generalised program like Blender 3dsmax or Maya etc.
right Ive been looking at Maya since its the standard, but after animating the shot do i need to use renderman or vray for the final lighting etc?? lol
Blender, Maya, 3dsmax, etc + Pixar's Renderman.
is there any other programs like render man? ive heard its good but outdated and slow
Shut the fuck up and do some research you baby.
Show us what you've got so far.
All i have is a few male and female zbrush anatomy models ive created, I just want to start animating them to get in that practice if that makes sense
Do you understand topology or do you just have raw sculpts? Because if not you have a cliffside of a learning curve ahead of you. Not to mention rigging.
NIGGERS TONGUE MY ANUS
You mean renderers?
Um, yeah. Hey, look, Maya comes with one, already integrated.
Look, man. At this point, you're aiming a bit too high. You've got a lot of learning ahead of you.
Either use the renderer you have or pick one at random. Stick with it while you learn. When you know enough to start looking for other options, you'll be better informed on what you need.
Fascinating. Do they offer this service for free, or are you paying them?
Maya, learn what you need to make animation, which includes proper topology, shaders/rendering in mental ray, rigging and animation
>want to replicated a feature film
Not gonna happen
Maya is a good generalist package for what you're looking for, but I'd get a more realistic goal
look into renderers. If you want yo animate, look into rigging. maya is the standard for rigging / animation. I don't do much offline rendering but arnold, renderman, vray are some of your options. keyshot is a decent contender if you just want a static beauty shot, but I dunno how well it works for rendering skin since I haven't used it myself.
most of the things you'll learn about rendering animations also apply to rendering static shots, so do that first.
