hello people. I'm barely getting started with 3D modeling, using maya, used it mostly to make stuff on unity. I can't model at all but i'm learning how to UV stuff, using quixel, normal maps, materials and stuff.Point is, i'm looking for a 3D modeling software that runs on "a toaster" meaning my netbook that has no hardware acceleration/GPU/OpenGL/etc available. It runs a bunch of old 3D games with no problem, so i figure it can handle making a bunch of boxes and spheres on SOME software. Right?fyi blender wouldn't run, but im open to any alternatives, no matter how useless the software might be to a pro. thankspic unrelated
wings3d is your last chance if blender is too heavy lolpretty sure 2005 computer can run blender
>>558939it's not that it was too heavy, it gave me an error like "nope, can't install on this computer".It's something about the graphics, because i can run ableton live, photoshop (without the 3D thing the new ones have!) and a few other fairly heavy softwares. Not flawleslly, but still.Gonna try this wings3d one. thanks
>>558940it says it needs openGL, i know it won't run.Could it be that with a driver update im able to run openGL? it's kinda ridiculous the shit im not being able to run because of this software gimmick
>>558943having no graphics card is impossible.your graphics card is what displays every pixel on your screen
You can try the now ancient Blender 2.49 - it's the last version before they fixed the UI and modernized everything (2009).
>>558943My toaster from 10 years ago has OpenGL 2.0, if I'm not mistaken, and Blender requires 1.4.Try updating your driver, and tell us what graphics card you have.
>>558937Go to your device manager and take a screenshot of that. Upload it here.We can't start to help you if we don't know what hardware you're running. But you probably do have a GPU, either integrated into your CPU chipset, embedded onto the motherboard itself or otherwise, and you just don't know you do.
>>558944what about software rendering? it can send pixel data to a display connection while running on a cpu can't it?
>>558944That isn't true anon. GPU =/= video cardWhile every computer has a gpu be it a video card or integrated chipset into the motherboard, not every pc has a dedicated video card
>>560337My mistake, I meant integrated chipset into the cpu, not the motherboard.
