Aspiring CG artist and Game DeveloperI've had some experience in Blender. My friend wants me to make him some models however I'm not very good at moddeling.Should I keep with blender or is there any other free software that's Blender-tier or higher? Also Any paid software to strive for in the long-runpic semi-related result of me following a blender tutorial
>>518051blender is perfect for gamedev
Blender is all you need, just follow tutorials until you can do it on your own.
>>518066Good to know>>518069Ok, any reccomended tutorials for actually learning techniques rather than making specific things or just learn techniques from making things?
>>518075https://discord.gg/0Y4utWZT6cwisPPzon our discord we got some good tuts posted
I would use Houdini. It's god tier
>>518091This anon knows.
>>518051Whatever you use is fine just rememberless UV splits and smoothing groups the better.
Hows it going crazy dave:)
Blender can't match rendering like Maya and simulation, etc, if we go all the way up to the skill pipeline of each packages scale. However it is more equal in terms of modelling and sometimes animation. Just know that it's free and doesn't cost money, and it's really the artist, not the tool.
I'm going to bounce of of OP's question and ask a question I'm sure you've all heard before. I'm a CS major interested in computer graphics. I want to design and work on engines, specifically renderman (my dream is to work at Pixar). While I have good programming and math skills, how would I go about learning more of the animation and design side of things. I have Maya since I can get it for free through my uni. Any tips you anons can give me for making myself as marketable as possible?I have spent a little time in Blender, but thought I should just jump in on the big one.
>>519250>While I have good programming and math skills, how would I go about learning more of the animation and design side of things.You start with watching tutorials, and reading animation theory>Any tips you anons can give me for making myself as marketable as possible?For pixar?GIT REALLYFUCKINGGUD
>>519267>For pixar?if pixar was actually gud they would make a range of products instead of the same one over and over. They're like a tattoo artist that can only do skulls.
>>520112>result of me following a blender tutorial
>>520112Must have been a rendering tutorial then, with provided mesh, because the resemblance is way too close.
>>520117its as if they followed the same tutorial.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqhi8q4EGZk
>>520113yeah, but they'll still want you to have mad skills that you'll never use.
>>520113If making skulls is making me billions, I'd make the best looking skulls over and over.
