>>599433Just another thing amongst many others...until the next "big" thing comes along...and scam artists can again sell new tutorials because everyone's back at square one. Rinse and repeat (until AI takes over our jobs).
>>599433I'm sure it's a lot more fun to keep a ton of graphs and cheat sheets at hand and having to reference online documentation for the spectral properties of a material to ensure your material looks realistic in addition to making sure it looks good.
>>599443I'm doing NPR only, so I have no use for this PBR baloney
Specular is a meme. Why haven't any non-game 3D programs made metal/rough the new standard?
itt: another thread full of people referring to metallic/roughness workflow as PBR
>>599433All rendering is a meme, just save out out as the raw, unlit, untextured image.
>>599455like this? Yes, that is the future but we are not there yet
>>599455Oh, and make sure the rig controls and rig bones are still visible.
>>599453PBR doesn't specifically refer to metal/rough, but all metal/rough workflows are PBR.
>>599455>he's not actually modelling by using a text editor and writing the OBJ file by hand
>>599468>not directly writing VBOsnot gonna make it
>>599455>3d modeling>you already live in a world surrounded by fully realistic 3d objectsjust take a picture, bird brain
>>599433Nah just better than using shaders to make up for awful ray casting maps
Is sculpting and painting foliage textures a meme when you can just use photo textures and get more realistic results? Genuine question. I've seen a lot of studios sculpting their plants. And then people on the forums start a discussion how e.g. Crysis 3 has superior graphics to Uncharted 4 because it seems like Crytek used photo sources, so not shit will look better. But then again, for somewhat stylized approach it should be good? But it seems that people are hand-painting their textures even when they go for photorealism.
>>599455CPU rendering is certainly a meme.
>>599475Bitch please, why take a picture when you can just see it.
>>599564Nigger please, why see pictures when you can just use your imagination.
>>599568> imagination> on /3/
>>599569I imagine OP is a faggot.
>>599575That's intuition, not imagination.
>>599579Not even intuition but common knowledge.
I'm fairly new to 3D and I don't understand why people argue about this. Is it just the typical "I'll argue about anything no matter how unimportant it is" meme?My modeling is aimed at games, so I don't even plan to do any rendering outside of a game engine, and the engine I use uses PBR with metal and roughness by default.
PBR is a meme. Games like PUBG use it (#1 on steam), and guess what? Looks like absolute piss.
God dammit it pisses me off when people use the word meme incorrectly.Ironically misusing the word meme is in and of itself actually a meme. But for fucks sake op, read a fucking book.
>>599594No one's arguing about anything. Not a single post in this thread exists to challenge anyone else's perception about any topic. Welcome to 4chan.
>>599595Your life is a meme. In the future, you'll be dead and nobody will even remember you except as a piece of shit they're confused as to why they even liked.
>>599618I have a big dick
No idea if it's a PBR specific problem, but it's often too shiny in games and it often looks like playdough or plastic and muddy. Chracters often look more like collectible miniature figures and not rel size.
>>599568Why use imagination when you can BE the object?
>>599620Nah, I get that problem too sometimes when I'm trying to make something less reflective. And it sucks even harder when SSS is involved.It seriously needs more (and better) flexibility when it comes to making materials if you want an honest, non-meme opinion.
>>599433nah its good cheap beer
>>599569i like donuts
>>599620i think that problem may have to do with the game engines. most studios have to set up specific ranges for their textures to make it look nice within their engine.
>>599433why the fuck do you need to start this thread every single fucking dayenough with that shit alreadyyeah, you're bad, we get it
>>599453Fucking this, i hate how retards think Vray is not PBR because it cant use metalness, yet its been physically based since the beginning.
>>599441>>599443>>599448>>599451>>599453>>599455>>599475>>599558>>599595either this is some cancer samefagging, or all these anons are ignorant fucktards
>>600164100% true, and not only this, but you can definitely use it with a metalness workflowToo many morons on /3/, what are we even doing here anon?
>>599632I'm a friend of Maya. I was told she was here. Could I see her please?
>>599453I don't know why this is even a thing. If you're going to use PBR, might as well throw specular workflow out the window. It's outdated.
>>600366I mean is it really? Just seems like a different way of doing the exact same thing.
