is blender the current;y best free sculpting app? im using it as a stress ball everyday and i like it.alsowhen do you stop with symmetry?
>>538015The reddit is strong in this one.
>>538014Stefan's in the Win10 generation, we can't really blame him for Microsoft's decision to simplify vernacular.
>>538015That's what it's called lmao, you look like a retard calling it an "app".
>>538013>is blender the current;y best free sculpting app? im using it as a stress ball everyday and i like it.For pure sculpting for the joy of it, I think sculptris is better.
>>538014Just click on the start menu app, bruh
>>538014>>538023>The first recorded use of the term [killer app] in print was 1987, in PC Week 8 Sept. 107/2. "Everybody has only one killer application. The secretary has a word processor. The manager has a spreadsheet."
>>538068That says killer application. Not killer "app".
blender is a solid choice but the mats are terriblemats and shading is very important when sculpting
>>538082if you mean matcaps you can use any matcap / litsphere image in blender from a material by setting the mapping to normalyou'd think you should be able to just add some images to the matcap list but i haven't found a way that isn't just making a material
>>538013i sincerely dont understand blenderfags. it looks like they are 15yr old wanna-be call of duty art directors. by the time they are 17 they are smoking weed and doing nothing with their lives until they die
>>538076The wiki article is for "killer app". People have been shortening "application" to "app" since the late 80s to early 90s.
>>538140aight still looks dumb as shit though, probably due to it being the official term for macintosh programs while windows called them programs until win10 or soit's been associated with a dumbed down computer experience for decades and now it's bled over into windowsalso 90s was 20 years ago, i hate thinking about it myself
>>538140Just no. That's abbreviated there because there wasn't enough room to write the entire word. "Apps" is an iphone meme word because they know their userbase is so inept that can't even say full words without being confused. Blender is falls under the software genre of '3D modelling software' or '3D modelling program'. It is not a "free sculpting app" you reddit chucklefuck. Freaking millennial I hope your stupid phone makes you sterile for the good of all humanity, you filth.
>>538140Here is a google trend graph for the usage of the word App over time. Die.
>>538153The term predates google. >>538152From oxfordenglishdictionary's blog on the subject: "The history of the word ‘app’But, unlike smartphones and tablets, app isn’t new. According to the OED‘s historical entry for the word, app as a shortening of application (as in application program) first found its way into print in the 1980s. Back then it was mainly a colloquial term used in computing circles: the OED‘s early quotations for it come from such computing trade publications as Info World and Dr. Dobb’s Journal. It often appeared not by itself but as part of the phrase killer app, meaning a software application which makes a new computing platform desirable or necessary. "While I do have a library card, I'm too lazy to log into OED's webzone to find the specific examples that use "app" and / or "killer app", but the Wikipedia article for "killer app" says the same thing.>>538013If you really want to get the most out of Blender sculpting, I'd recommend:- the QuickPrefs add-on (it's like a matcap but less memory intensive; leverages Blender's viewport settings)- SpeedSculpt, lets you bool and do other stuff Blender has always been capable of but has hidden behind shit UI https://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?405035-Addon-SpeedSculpt and for SpeedRetopo for Retopo, which basically merges the functionality of a bunch of AddOns into an easier to use UIhttps://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?406224-Addon-SpeedRetopo
>>538252can you find a "free" version of speed sculpt and retopo?
>>538152>"Apps" is an iphone meme word because they know their userbase is so inept that can't even say full words without being confused.wholeheartedly agree
>>538318Speedsculpt is like 9 bucks. retopo is a pay what you want. Just give him a buck.
>>538014>appsHonestly, I preferred it when us Windows users used to call them 'progs'. 'apps' were used for referring to Apple software. Or am i just remembering wrong?
>>538091You get much slower performance doing that compared to using the built in matcaps.
>>538607It's the way I also remember things so, barring some Mandela effect, I'm pretty sure you're right.
>>538318it kinda defeats the purpose of a "free" sculpting APP if you need to pay in order to make it usable.
>>538607>progsPretty sure that was the 1337 term for warez and script kiddie shit
>>538607yes. i am on the same timeline as you. Only crapplemac software for SHITEphone was called apps.
>>538700was is the key word famalam
