Which one is better? Blender, 3D Max or Maya?
I want to see blood.
i believe they are both capable of same things
but autodesk takes the cake with fancy plugins
ps. blender user
i like the three programs,
but as a wanna be linux fag, i would go for blender
It's the same withouth some plugins maya and max have, but nothing python can't solve
>gives three options
ALL poly modeling is shit
but when I need to quickly model, I use Blender. When I need to rig, I refuse to use anyhting besides Maya.
Blender is quicker for low poly game art. Blender rigging is a fucking nightmare.
Good night, polymodeling kiddos.
Keep trying to box model your shitty characters
>use blender they said
>it's just as good as 3Ds Max in every way
How do I close all these UI windows? Every time I try to drag them into another panel to close them they just open another panel.
shift space retard
None of those work.
>ALL poly modeling is shit
ALL *of your poly modeling is shit
blender isnt quicker for shit, modo has great modeling tools and so does max/maya. but get that blender shit out of here
haven't you heard of bsurfaces?
Wow, it's literally the same NURB shit made in the 90s and something every other modelling package already contains
It's also literally the same as subdiv modelling, except the control points are controlled differently
What kind of stupid bait is this
Just reload your custom startup. You did setup your own startup blend with render settings, your own common custom materials, a 3 point lighting system, and a shader ball...right?
You aren't deleting a Cube every time you start up Blender, are you?
you can retopo very fast with it
Drag the thing you used to create those in the opposite direction. You will see an arrow overlay so you'll know you're doing the right thing.
at this point you won't be able to close the windows anymore
blender should have a portview reset button, i even save everytime because opening one
Are you retarded? What do you think the layout presets are for?
He's exaggerating, BUT it would be nice if when you modified the Default layout it automatically made a Default.001 (that you could then rename of course) and kept Default as Default, instead you have to manually do that
>Well I don't EVER want the Default!
OK but sometimes it's nice in case your cat jumps on your keyboard and you don't want to have to reload stuff etc.
right click on the edge of each window and select join, then move your cursor left or right and click according to the arrow
I used maya in college, now I'm using blender. Maya was always crashing and I would have to keep importing the files into a new scene just to get it not to crash for a while. blender seems so much more stable to me and even has sculpting and texture painting built in. plus blender had blendshapes built into the model before maya did. though I do miss maya's modeling tools that preserve the mode's edge flow. I haven't seen anything like that in blender
Poly modelling is shit?
News to me. Yeah I can hard surface and retopo in Zbrush if I have to but honestly I can make a hard surface model much quicker and easier in a vertex modeller. Even when I'm doing soft surface and organic modelling I still find it easier to box model my rough base in a vertex modeller and then import that into zbrush to refine it.
Maya has improved a hell of a lot over the past few versions though and they fixed up a shit tone of bugs on top of that. Also, the computers are colleges tended to have shit that caused Maya to be buggier than it really was. Give 2016 a try, I think you'd like it.
Blender did not have Blendshapes before Maya did...
Unless you are really serious about becoming a professional animator or something, I'd advice you to stick with Blender. It's so much easier and faster to get in to.
What is Blender?
>Blender did not have Blendshapes before Maya did...
He said Blender had them BUILT INTO THE MODEL before Maya did. For a long, long time, Maya needed separate copies of the mesh for each blendshape you wanted to use in the main mesh. It was... not optimal, to put it mildly.
