what are you picking up from black friday / cyber monday?
Nothing, really. With Blender I'm pretty well served.
>>651524Amen to that
>>651507>cyber mondaymore American nonsense
>>651507>paying for software*laughs in p2p*
>>651563Seriously, why pay for software when Blender, GIMP and Inkscape are free-of-charge?
>>651634Are you retarded? Pirating software means not paying for them. So why use FOSS software which lags behind proprietary software when you can have those industry tools that costs thousands of dollars for free?
>>651634because i choose a program and stuck with it and don't care if other free software exists
>>651650Yes, it is, but not immoral. Using Blender, however...
>>651637>which lags behind proprietary softwareReminder of the certainty you can have of Maya crashing, because autodesk gives the task of maintaining it to less than a dozen software engineers.
>>651655Maya: crashes 10 times a day, allows you to do the job in a week.Blender: crashes practically never, allows you to do the job in a month (if at all).
>>651660Since you cant afford maya you cant use it at all so you never even get started
>>651661Not the case for a studio or for a freelancer. A hobbyist can do whatever they want, of course.
>>651507I thought ill finally buy Octane or at least X Particles, but still too heavy on my budgetI just want to render nice things
>>6515243Dcoat is superior to Blender in pretty much every way outside modeling.
>>652075Newer versions of Octane and Xparticles cant be cracked. And Octane 3 on cgpeers works only in r19 and Xparticles 2 only in r16. Thats shit
>>651507Thinking of getting a year-long subscription to cgcookie since it's discounted now.It wasn't on sale but I picked up a Vive Wireless Adapter and am considering getting a Nintendo Switch. Switch has only four exclusives worth picking up a system for so I'm still on the fence about it.
>>652081>am considering getting a Nintendo Switch. Switch has only four exclusives worth picking up a system for so I'm still on the fence about it.ishyddt
>>652078Why not? Nothing is uncrackable, unless they went to some kind of subscription, cloud based system, and even then I'm not so sure
