How is it that there are literally no sculpting programs that take advantage of the surface? It's perfect for sculpting but there are simply no programs optimized for it.
I guess most professionals just use cintiqs and don't sculpt on the move.I have a surface but I use it for Rhino&GH, presentations, drawing and controlling robots. Works great. Never tried sculpting anything tho.I guess the market is not really there and the things are very expensive if you get the hardware capable of running zbrush.
I got ugee hk1560 tablet monitor for sculpting.It's much cheaper than cintiqs, and works great even thou I cannot compare it because it's my first monitor tablet (much better, than a wacom graphics tablet)I also like it that it's 15 inches, because I can use it in bed at night.also https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0dH4P0jHJA
>>573751Can the Surface handle sculpting? It's possible that it's simply not that great of a device for sculpting or that not that many people who owns one sculpt. Why optimize a program for a small group of people?On a side note i've never seen someone with one of those Surface devices. >>573757>I also like it that it's 15 inches, because I can use it in bed at night.Context anon.
>>573751>It's perfect for sculptingIt does have a capacitive touch screen, right? If so maybe it's because people don't like doing 3D sculpting with a pen the size of a dildo.
>>573751An I5 should be enough for Zbrush.But i guess even if its Microsoft, they don't want to disrupt the "professional" market by giving out cheap alternates to expensive hardware. Artist are high on the list of people they can rip off with high prices.
Blender works really well if you have a way to navigate since the pen don't have a middle mouse button you'll need to use one of the many alternative methods for navigationSo it's not optimized for it but blender runs pretty well around 800K to 5M Polys in sculpt mode on a surface pro 4 i5
>>573751You ever heard of sculpting on a cintiq using ZBrush? Or am I missing something? If so, please don't insult me. I mean, whatever you wish to come will come in the next 10 years anyway.
>>573751>How is it that there are literally no sculpting programs that take advantage of the surface?because the surface is a fad.
>>573751Because the pen is not nearly the quality of Wacom. It's fine for taking notes at work, maybe some sketching on the go. If you want a decent device for mobile sculpting get the Wacom MobileStudio.
