That is supposed to be baked ambient occlusion. Next you're going to tell me that it is MY fault because I've got "bad topology" or some bullshit like that. Gave me no warnings and no errors, but it gave me that. What an absolute piece of satanic shit Blender is.
I tried to do my best to model the weird piece of shit you're working on and baked that ao in 15 minutes total. Not only are your uvs fucked, you're so bad I dont even know how you managed to do half the things wrong with your garbage.
>>575696I could have given you the model. And i don't doubt that it's somehow possible to make it work. But let me ask you this: how many years of Blender experience did you need to do that in 15 minutes?
>>575697im not doing your work for youuuuu
This is the model BTW:https://sourceforge.net/projects/snes9l/files/map01.zip/downloadIt's in OBJ format. When you import it, it comes out quite a bit off the origin but you navigate it in camera fly mode (Shift+F) easily.
>>575696>>575698You muffighi... My whole point is that floors are not supposed to emit light. Only in Blender they do. You replicated Blender's mistake and called it good. Please, please, get out of the Blender cult now.
>>575700I left a hole in the ground because of how retarded your shit looks. Please dont blame a tool and then try to find excuses as to why it's not your fault
>>575701Please dowload the model. It looks retarded because of Blender. Again, that was my whole point. The model itself is a Doom level converted to OBJ.
This is an exterior rendered (not baked) of the same (or similar) model. Does it look retarded to you? If you want to see something even more retarded I can show you Blender's internal renderer trying to do global illumination. That's even funnier.
You can try to bake ambient occlusion on this one as well if you like. It's similar but it's from another game.https://sourceforge.net/projects/snes9l/files/e3l1.zip/download
why the fuck are you baking AO?do it as a pass in cycleshttps://blender.stackexchange.com/questions/51751/emphasizing-cycles-render-ambient-occlusion
>>575713Because I thought it was a relatively simple and useful thing to do. No surprise Blender doesn't do it.Cycles is awful, really ugly and I don't think it even compiles on Linux/ARM, so you can keep it to yourself.
>>575714do whatever you want, im sure your dazzling results will transfer to autodesk products
>>575715When did I mention any commercial product. I do most of this stuff (which is my hobby) with notepad, python, povray and a raspberry pi. I just thought Blender could be useful for once. I was wrong. You need to get out of the Blender Foundation cult.
>>575716i get good results out of blender, and i watched well over 30 tutorials, some of them in great length. and this is what most autodesk people do as well.you generally make a ton of mistakes at your first projects. i have a folder with over 50 blend files that i made just to try new things and accelerate my progress
Autodesk products being bad as they are doesn't help Blender in any way. It's still broken and it's getting worse with time.
>>575717Tutorials are nothing but patches you apply to your brain, which really should be applied to the software instead. The fact that you *need* tutorials to use Blender is proof the software is broken.
>>575719if you think 3D is the same as using a freeware video editor you are gravely mistaken, it takes months and even years to get up to good startpic related, this was made in 3 days. i don't want to come off like my work is beautiful or some shit, im just saying your speed depends on the amount of TIME spent on the software
>>575720Do you Blender Foundation shills have pre-made copy-pasta posts? You all go along the line: you wasted time with Blender and found out it's broken and useless? Waste even more time in it! Right? That's what you do.
>>575723wow frogman you should go back to jewing on the stock market and stop wasting time
>>575720And BTW trying to prove something, you just posted another really good "Blender strikes again" example. Nevermind that the shape of the watch is odd. Look at those "Blender natural" shadows in the background.
>>575719Hahahaha holy shit this is the most retarded post I have ever read.
>>575726the only thing that's odd is trying to bake ao maps for a minecraft level
Holy shit OP you're a fucking retard.The topology is bad. However you unwrapped it is bad. The light sampling is bad.Blender isn't bad. You are.Either accept that you're shit right now and learn from it and get better, or give up and fuck off.
>>575729desu that's one way to do it but it would be alot better if manually unwrapped it
>>575730True. Not going to bother putting the effort in. That file has faces split out in some mind-numbingly retarded and random ways.
>>575729>The topology is badYou do realize that topology doen't matter because it's all flat and flat shaded, right? Also there are only so many ways you can triangulate a polygon, so you're contrained in that sense unless you want to introduce a lot of t-junctions.But compare it with a non-baked ambient occlusion rendering. I've got similar results as well, which I didn't post because I thought the one I posted was funnier. You'll see that the baked version is full of shading errors even for something as simple as ambient occlusion.
>>575733FYI the "faces split out in some mind-numbingly retarded and random ways" the OpenGL GLU library did it, not me. That library was written by some of the best people in the industry. Maybe you can do better. Now prove it and do it all by hand.
>>575728It's not a minecraft level. It's a random Doom level generate by Oblige:http://oblige.sourceforge.net/And converted to OBJ by me. And I don't see why somebody wouldn't want to bake a lightmap for a minecraft level. Software that actually works should be able to do it. Blender can't do it.
>>575736doom didn't have ao or lightning. the first engine that actually had point lights was unreal and it came later
>>575738I guess Quake (1996) never existed.
>>575739it had lightmaps that were pre calculated
>>575700>floors are not supposed to emit lightAO has nothing to do with emitting light, you stupid fuck. It's for finding where an object reflects the most light.>>575703Yeah, it looks like a really shitty Quake map with a bunch of random extrudes and bevels.
>>575719So? People make tutorials for Maya and 3DS Max, does that make those programs broken? What about ZBrush or Photoshop?Tutorials are a way of life. Attacking one program while conveniently ignoring all others for doing the same thing is retarded.
>>575769there is a growing trend of people that download programs and never watch tutorials, they make some crude models and then blame the software
>>575770There is a growing trend of people who post in a thread trying to be smart and don't bother to read the last 5 posts before saying something stupid that I had already answered.
>>575744>AO... It's for finding where an object reflects the most lightNo.>random extrudes and bevelsAs I've explained not more than 5 posts ago, it's procedurally generated, which means those "random extrudes" are a feature, not a bug. There are no bevels.>>575769>Tutorials are a way of lifeYou're in a cult. The Blender FOundation cult.
This is Blender's approximate gather ambient occlusion. Do I have to say anything? It's so broken.
>>575788>stairs pushing into a marshmellow cube
>>575782its obviously you just tinkering with the program and getting shit results. im sorry but you won't get a crying shoulder here if that's what your'e looking for
>>575806I'm not looking for a crying shoulder and I thought a user was supposed to tinker with programs.I can give you the model and the exact parameters so you can replicate those result sand see they're all perfectly reasonable 99.9% defaults.Keep in mind that Povray, Sunflow, PBRT and several other renderers I've tried, all do a perfectly fine job with these models. All except Blender.
>>575815blender biggest weakness is rendering and baking. i don't know if i mentioned it. but it has quite a few strengths as well (even compared to others).in the test builds the render engine improved significantly
About the model being "crude" check this out. It's two planes and some beams behind the camera, but properly rendered in Povray.
>>575784>You're in a cult. The Blender FOundation cult.The fuck? When I was in school I had to watch tutorials on how to use programs, and I look up tutorials for animation and on how to use Photoshop's filter tools regularly. Not only that, but I know how flawed Blender is in many aspects.How the fuck is using tutorials for ANY program considered a cult. By your logic, I might as well be in the Adobe cult for looking up Photoshop/Animate/Illustrator/[Insert other Adobe product] tutorials.
>>575833It's the way they run things that makes them a cult. It's their attitude.Blender tutorials are not really tutorials. There's a guru who teaches them the way of Blender. It's a lifestyle. Blender tutorials are crafted in such a way to make you feel guilty because the machinery is flawed. It's your fault but you can redeem yourself by getting deeper in the Blender Foundation cult and waiting for the next release. It's going to be awesome they say.They've been doing that for the past 15 years: worrying about running the cult and not worrying about fixing the software.Also with this thread I hope I've shown you why prosessionals don't touch Blender not even with a stick. It's not because it free, it's because it's useless.
>>575840andrews tutorials are garbage. he went abit too crazy with the product hes trying to promote and now uses it for almost every tutorial he makes.i don't know why he is so recommended in blender circles, you have other tutors that own him in terms of teaching delivery and knowledge
>>575852>andrews tutorials are garbage. he went abit too crazy with the product hes trying to promote and now uses it for almost every tutorial he makes.Why wouldn't he? They're his products. I only have them because I pirated them, and while not terrible, they're not that good. I don't get why he's recommended either, maybe he does have some useful points. But as you said, the fact that he's using his own addons hurt them too.>you have other tutors that own him in terms of teaching delivery and knowledgeWho exactly? Just curious.>>575840The problem is that it made it seem like anyone using any tutorial for any program was part of a cult. Not just the Blender users.
>>575852Andrew is so painfully autistic I gave up watching. He gets good results, but he's so overrated as a tutor.
>>575860Now you can make a playlist of video tutorials on youtube and teach people how to do it and become the next Blender guru.
>>575857borncg,darine lile,blender sensei,cg geek,Oliver Villar
>>575717>and this is what most autodesk people do as wellJust because the natural flow of doing things nowadays is watching some fagtron on YouTube talk for 5 minutes about something he could just do in 30 seconds doesn't mean that it's the right way to do things.With Autodesk software, I was able to figure out the basics of 3D modeling within a week without ANY tutorials, while with Blender I was never fucking able to.I'll give you that this was almost 10 years ago and that I was 13 at the time, but it really speaks to user experience and human factors when a software can't be designed to be used by a know-nothing kid.
>>575876so you can use autodesk now. case closed
OP here. For the record, I do not endorse any product except for Notepad and Povray, which is the only true way real men like myself do Computer Graphics.
>>575885>the only true way real men like myself do Computer Graphicsyou mean you use atari 8-bit basic too?thought i was the only one.
Forgive me for the misaligned textures, I'll fix them eventually. But just for reference, this is what that "crude" geometry with "bad topology" and "retarded face splits" looks like rendered in Povray.Why can't Blender do anything right?
>>575958i can easily do this in blender. youre just not tech savvy person. its ok to admit
So get the model from here:https://sourceforge.net/projects/snes9l/files/map01.zip/downloadAnd show me how it's done. You can easlily do it, right?
>>575963its the worst model iv ever seen. what you want me to do with it?
>>575964I don't know. You said you could easily do it in Blender. If you need the beautiful textures I'm using, they're from the Freedoom project.
>>575971im not gonna do link hunting to prove a point, if you want me to show you how its done in blender package the textures (in none engine format) and the object files
>>575974So you lied. Turns out you couldn't easily do it in Blender.Anyway. This is the last one for now. I'll fix the texture alignment when it gets a little colder, I just wanted to give you an idea of what that kind of model is supposed to look like.
>>575975im just not an autist that get fascinated over doom mods that no one even plays.
>>575979But you're fascinated by Blender, which is something nobody even uses in the industry.
>>575984As a third party onlooker, I can tell you baking GI into doom scenes is several levels of autism above using blender at work.
>>575987I don't know if I'll ever find the time and the will to do it but eventualy I want to render Doom and Duke Nukem maps with Mitsuba or something like that, with PBR materials, fresnel, caustics and per-pixel path tracing.
>>575993so why you never said so? i could help you from day 1.but you insisted on trashing the program. lots of people come here daily to ask questions and we answer their questions. this issue could be fixed!
>>575994I'm the middle of an heat wave right now but I'll hit you back in a few days. I'll make another thread and I'll try to explain the story so far, so if you want to join me in my quest to render state-of-the-art photorealistic Doom levels, you're welcome.
Ignore this pretty good bait, /3/. It's just the ghost of Coumbine's past griefing poor souls cause he has nothing better to do. I'm pretty sure it's the same troll that calls /3/ posters senpai and says, "Literally Google," when a question is asked.
>>575719>Tutorials are nothing but patches you apply to your brain, which really should be applied to the software instead.what the actual fuck am I reading
>>576161Someone who doesn't get that his logic could easilly be flipped over to any other program too.Got into this argument earlier with another anon about this, but if you can't use a tutorial to help out, then what's the point? You'll never be able to use that feature in Blender/Maya/whatever if you don't know how it works.
>>576172>You'll never be able to use that featureUnless that feature was actually useful, not bugged and easy to use. That doesn't happen in Blender.
>>576001You're wrong. I'm the OP, the "your generation" guy and the Duke Nukem guy (you could have guessed that). The "senpai" and "literally google" guys I don't know who they are.
>>576188So you're saying Maya or 3DS don't need tutorials then?Because that's retarded logic right there.
>>576206I've never said that.
>>576218You keep saying that, yet what if there's a feature in either program I want to use but can't? Or say, want to know how to model/rig/light in them? Am I allowed to use them then?The fact you call Blender tutorials a cult without proof, yet claim other ones aren't feels like a double standard.
>>575718>>575719Going full autism dule3danon. Bite the bullet and just admint you fucked up in Blender. It's a decent tool.
>>575723I use blender because I simply cannot afford 200 odd pounds a month for (((industry standard))) software, if there is a good free or cheap alternative to blender them please inform us all
>>576252>>576286The fact that so many people get so upset when I state the fact that Blender is bad software if proof they're running a cult.>>576290There are many. Houdini maybe?
>>575860Oh shit OP got btfo
>>576294>The fact that so many people get so upset when I state the fact that Blender is bad software if proof they're running a cult.maybe its because your'e intentionally trying to upset people.you are probably scrawny,flimsy,know-it-all four eyes that see life through an ironic lens. kill yourself.
>>576303>you're intentionally trying to upset peopleYou may have noticed an ongoing trend of people who get upset at reality.
>>576304reality says you can get good results with blender fast.if you and me are gonna compete for any model in terms of time. im gonna make it 10 times faster guaranteed. you are just slow,whiny and cucked
>>575720>not renaming your objectsdisgusting
>>575840I don't think there's any hope left for you, brainless raisin
>>576294>The fact that so many people get so upset when I state the fact that Blender is bad software if proof they're running a cult.That's just fucking ridiculous. Are you saying you're part of the anti-Blender cult then? It seems you're getting kinda upset as well when the people who use the program properly defend it.
>>576366>Are you saying...I've never said that. I'm just trying to save some people from some of the disappointment Blender would eventually bring them.
You have bad topology.
>>576378While I deeply appreciate you caring for the people in this humble community, this probably isn't the way. You're insulting them. In fact, the later comments are less about the program itself than the 'cult' you're talking about.
>>576408Yeah, that's what I don't get.I'll be the first to admit that Blender DOES have flaws, like its UI, and how its lacking in texture and sculpting tools unless you buy addons or use outside programs like zBrush, Substance or Photoshop. And there's others I've personally have had issues with, like with its lighting systems (though I also admit that I suck at lighting).But the issue feels like that it's less the program and more the userbase itself that offends Cult anon.
>>576436You're not good at second-guessing people. But here's an idea: you could actually read the thread if you're interested in my thoughts.
>>575695It's your fault.
>>576441>you could actually read the thread if you're interested in my thoughts.Oh but your thoughts are crystal clear, stop hiding it. You can't handle the fact that your problems with the program are because of your lacking knowledge of it, so now you're bashing the program itself and the userbase, like that's gonna solve your fucking problem.
>>576513>your lacking knowledgeBecause I've never joined the Blender Foundation cult. Thank you for helping me prove my point.
>>576514Since when did knowing literally fucking anything about something mean you're part of a cult following it? Stop crying senpai, nobody is gonna help you if you're acting retarded. If you don't want to use the program, suit your fucking self, but you're just being a fag at this point.
>>576518Answer me this: why don't they find ways to put the knowledge necessary to use the program inside the program? There could be help dialogs, wizards, meaningful error and warning messages. I suspect it's because that wouldn't make them money through AD revenue from youtube, book sales and they couldn't indoctrinate their users to their cult.
>>576522U're so right man. Illuminati confirmed. I miss those wizards, that paperclip in Word was the shit.Nice dubs too.
>>576529A Blender Bob would be great, but I would settle for contextual help readily accessible (not through a browser) and meaningful error and warning messages.But it doesn't matter because they're never going to do any of that.
>>576522Hey, fair enough, a good documentation would help, but did your provider block YouTube or some shit? Are you afraid of it? Did your IP get blocked from it? Personally I find the YouTube tutorials quite helpful and they set you on the right track to finding a lot of things out yourself as well. And Mr Cult, you're not telling me the blender foundation would be remotely close to being the only company that would rather make some money than help the community, even though the community itself is already doing that. Can you blame them? It's a free program they put their time in. >they couldn't indoctrinate their users to their cult. So you're turning 8 this month? Awesome!
>>576441We'd still be having the same argument if we were talking about something like an Autodesk or Adobe product.It doesn't fucking matter, hell, I could say I got indoctrinated in the Adobe cult for all I care (and I have, ALL HAIL PHOTOSHOP!) and you wouldn't give two shits about it. At least I can say Blender has plenty of fucktarded issues that the people behind it may never get around to addressing to, like the broken .FBX importer/exporter.
>>576567So are you gonna make a decision? Is the userbase the problem or is the lack of enough quality of life features the problem? I think we both know the answer.
>>576569because your hatred of blender comes from inexperience, not from actual roadblocks which prevents you from making art.the sooner you sober up to this fact, the better it will be for you.you are basically crying about muh limitations! in a program which have like a 100,000 different function, get over it
Op seems to be using a potato for a monitor. That fuckin res.And Blender Internal is massively obsolete. It hasn't been updated for years but you still use it and complain when it can't do stuff. Of course it can't, it's ancient shit.
>>576570Excuse me, you tagged the wrong person, I'm not crying about blender at all, I'm not OP
Alright i solved this issue.all you have to do is click two buttons. instead of add click multiply (leave it at 1 or whatever)change from raytrace to approximate if you don't want noise.you get world AO without baking shit, case fucking closed
>>576588>whine in a thread saying how blender is shit>perpetuate this discussion up to 100 replies>it turns out you're just a dumbass who didn't RTFMCongratulations, anon. I'm proud of you.
>>576591im not OPit took me 20 seconds of googling and tinkering
>>576588Does that nonsense looks acceptable to you?Blender strikes again and again.
>>576601lower the factor thenbut your weak mind probably doesn't grasp that. you need help like a baby that can't use a spoon
>>576601Holy shit you are retarded
>cunts not bother to learn the software whine that the software is not workinghonestly you people are a fucking joke
>>576609i don't get it. all of these fags that complain about blender could pickup maya any day. if these faggots need a kosher software why they don't just download maya already, its fucking free
>>576610Probably because Maya is much harder than Blender. Blender and 3ds max are babbies first moddeling software. Then there is Cinema 4D, then Maya, then Houdini
>>5766123d isn't meant to be easy. we also have an active thread with people complaining about zbrush.you guys are really soft, holy shit. if you can't sit and study anything then don't do 3d
>>576569From reading your posts, it's obviously both. As I said, I'm more afiliated with the "Adobe cult" than I am the "Blender cult".Give you this though, you're not AS retarded as OP.
>>576613This here, if "Blender cult" anon could only realize that people having issues isn't just limited to one program...
>>576629I know that. The Gnome Foundation and the Mozilla Foundation, not to mention Google and Microsoft, are all run like cults. It's a big issue but the Blender Foundation is one of the worst offenders because they don't have any good software to back up their cult.
>>576612>Probably because Maya is much harder than Blenderi've used both and this really isn't true. maya is a lot easier to pick up and figure out how to do shit in than blender is
>>576612blender is has a shitty ui that literally requires you to read tutorials to figure out how basic things workIt does have a nice timeline though
>>576633oh yeah? tell me more about the occult
>>576633You joking? Firefox and Windows' problems are much more widespread than some free 3D software.
>>576613its the influx of pozer/daz users that think what they're doing is work
>>576672We don't waste our time arguing about how to light shitty quake levels chumThis is where you make an ad hominem argument yet post no image because you have norenderz
