>>659852show me your nodes>>659828in specular and normal you should change the color to non-color data in the texture option, other than that it seem fine. altho im not sure why you need a texture for subsurface scattering.
can someone explain the different transform orientations to me? or a link to a video or text that doesn't suck?normally what I do is playing a guessing game until the 3d manipulator widget is pointing in the direction I want (usually I switch between global and normal if I want to stretch, for example, a rotated cylinder along it's normal). that works for most things, but i feel like a deeper understanding would be useful.
>>659910well you have to play with it to understand but here is a quick rundown:global means, in 3d space, more specifically in relation to the entire arbitrary world within your viewportlocal means in relation only to the object itselfnormal- just to 1 selected element, the z axis will point in that direction.gimble-allows rotation on a single axisview- will match the current view, in the viewport
>>659914ok, that helped a lotstill a little unsure on gimble? how is that different from locking by pressing x,y,z?
>>659924iv never used that option.but i think.. when you do free rotation like double tap R, it will limit the amount of axis in a way.. not really sure, i just read that from the manual
>>659894thank you anon!
whats the best way to achieve this kind of shading in internal? I figured out a way of doing it but its super convoluted and limited
>>659969i would do it in unity instead, the shop is full of good cartoon shaders. the one in BI won't allow much wiggle room
>>659983it isn't a toon shader and I'm using it for animation not a game
>>659989shader=shading? isn't a toon shader?best way to just draw this if you ask me
anybody got tips or a link on how to make warm indoor lighting, something that looks like recessed lighting, no windows (or curtains drawn)pic mostly related. there's a window, but ignore that. i'd like to use blender internal, if possible. i'm not going for photo real. i want it to look like shit, tbpqh
Hey /3/ i am stuck on something. A client came to me saying that they want to have a pattern on their hoodie printed right. Basically he wants the pattern to be put onto the hoodie and get the resulting template. I'm thinking Unwrap so i import the AI hoodie template into 3ds max and use garment maker to make a 3d hoodie which i'll be able to texture and get the unwrap on. Except being the retarded software it is it crashed and now i'm stuck. I don't know how i can do it.
>>660010point light to generate basic lightning in the room, make it centered as possible to avoid reflections.combination of area and spot lights for the indoor lamps.a 2 color light combination always give a nice feel, a mix o blue and yellow perhaps
>>660013Download modelUnwrap in blender or just used the already done unwrap.
>>660013not sure what u need
>>660013just use project painting? it exists in every major software, including blender.mind you, it takes some time to get right
>>660013Try out Marvelous Designer, maybe? Not entirely sure what you're asking for but something like MD is perfect for generating garments. Definitely try it out if you're going to be doing more of this in the future.
>feel comfortable with extrude based modelling >want to learn sculpting nexthttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhKGI92dUQUTrying to follow this tutorial and im losing my mindIs there a way to constrain axis for sculpting? Are there some secret settings for the snake hook brush to make it feel more precise?
Doing some low poly(?)the old model i had was like 9k+ tris of chino I tried doing a little further to 2k Tris.Is this decent for a low poly model??(i know textures shit and has no AO)https://sketchfab.com/models/a539f86affb44bde89e42c1602b7d7a3
>>660034Same anon here. I mean is the topology good somehow? I know i could improve in texturing.. Though i kind of need some help on that too.
how do i get a shoulder that'll deform properly? i've tried a bunch of stuff with topology, b-bones and weights with various degrees of success, but there's always volume loss or warping when putting the arm into a pose with the hand behind the headhow are the porn guys doing it? shape keys?
>>660046you do realize the arm is connecting to other muscles right? those have to have proper deformation topology too and then weighted properly
>>660046yes, corrective shapekeys driven by drivers based on bone rotation, etc.
Any good tutorials to learn rigging? i basically know nothing about it
>>659820Rigging question, I had a rigged body and I separated the teeth from the body object which created two objects. I then parented the new teeth object to the teeth bone to make it work properly. Only now the teeth don't correctly follow the armature (when it did before) and just vaguely follow it by orbiting outside of the mouth. Is this a texture paint error?
>>660046It's almost unheard of to see rigs that have shoulders that deform properly thru out the entire motion range. Most artist, esp ones doing high poly pre-rendered content, solve it with morphers/shape keys.The movie companies do elaborate simulation of muslces to solve this stuff.It's also not uncommon to not address it at all, but build the arm in a A-pose type configuration and be happy that it looks good thru ~half of the motion range.95% + of characters in games can't lift their arms above their heads without lots of stretching and tearing.But you can get away with that since it's so unusual to raise arms high above your head.If you wanna solve this in a rig you will need to use several bones and constraints to account for how the muscles shift the surface geometry thru out the motion range.The shape of the shoulder depending on the orientation of the arm varies so much that you will need to emulate some muscle and tendons, not just bone in your rig.Never found much good information on this subject, inventing my own solutions suitable for real-time use (my area of interest) emerged over many years of tinkering.
>>660075Do you ever plan on doing a full rigging tutorial some day? From what I've seen your stuff seems crazy comprehensive, and it being for real-time purposes makes it all the more impressive.
>>660076The fastest way to learn these kinds of techniques is just to watch rigging tutorials for other DCC's. There's a nice Houdini rigging tutorial by Michael Goldfarb that covers these kinds of helper joints for the clavicle and pecs.
>>660072you parented the teeth but you didn't allow it to keep transformi think you can use a constraint to fix that
>>660072> parented the new teeth object to the teeth boneWhy? Just parent it to the armature and weight paint it.Why is there even a teeth bone? Teeth suppose to be painted with the head and lower jaw bones.
>>660010>>660015I'm having a lot of difficulty achieving the right look. I'm going for something like pic related -- best image I could find online, sorry.I've experimented with AO, environment lighting, point lamps with low energy and shadows both enabled/disabled, area lamps, spot lamps, different lamp colors, soft sizes, samples, energy, distance, fall off, etc. This stuff is hard, but I won't give up. I just need a tutorial or a *.blend to study and I'm good.
>>660109Me again. I decided I'd experiment with Cycles and I'm getting closer to the results I want, and because I've got an NVIDIA GPU it's rendering about as fast.
>>660098>>660101It's the shit rigify rig that contains the teeth bones. The auto weightpaint paints both the top teeth and bottom teeth to the lower jaw, so when the mouth opens it takes along with it both teeth which makes it look aweful, which is why I tried to separate them and parent them to the teeth bones and it just messed it up further
No matter how many tutorials I follow, how much I practice and try to experiment, everything will turn out to be just utter shit, every scene I make doesn't seems right, which only results in me deleting the whole file. I don't think I'm made for 3D stuff.
>>660276thats because you dont know the basics. you cant follow tuts and expect to learn shit, if you already dont know where your shit is.
>>660276Of course you have what it takes. But that attitude isn't helping.You're not going to nail it on the first try (or even the second or third or fourth) and rarely anyone does. You've got to iterate over and over. Make a scene, write down what you don't like about it or seek feedback (NOT on /3/), salvage what's there and/or start over, and do this process several times pushing yourself further each time. It might take you a hundred attempts, but you *will* make something you're content with (nothing is ever perfect!).3D is hard and it takes a lot of time and labor. You might be underestimating how hard and time-consuming it is. If that's the case, then that's kind of comforting because it just means you need to allocate more time to studying and working. That's something within your power to change.Get a notepad and put a tally mark for every hour you spend studying or working. Use the timer on your phone/computer and only let it run when you're actively working. Fill up the entire page with tally marks. Be honest about how much effort you're putting in. This will help you be true and honest to yourself.And don't delete your scenes! That's evidence of the progress you're making. When you started, you probably thought you'd never reach that point but you did.
I made the meme donut
is there a way of having a 'windowed' texture (right handside in first half of pic related) but which follows the model as it move (unlike the second half) which happens if you use windowed coordinates for the texture?
>>660295is there a way of clipping rather than masking with a mask layer?
>>660295>>660298think I might have solved this but any suggestions would still be appreciated
>>660276it took me about 100 artworks to be in a place of "not shit anymore"
>>660276I find reference helps a lot. Look at models in game asset viewers or places like sketchlab and look at the wireframe to see how they did the topology.

Is it possible to get grease pencil 2 objects to work with panoramas? They just render on a different 'layer' under normal camera settings.
>>659820Poorfag blendlet here. Anyone know where I can download uv packmaster 1.9+?
>>660463It's on cgpeers.
>>660466Only 1.8 is on CG peers. I need 1.9+ for 2.8
>>660467How unfortunate for you. Suck it up Buttercup and use the old version.
>>660467Ask someone who already has it to share, after all that's the spirit of free software.
>>660063>Any good tutorials to learn rigging?>good tutorialsGet out of this mindset of only watching "good" tutorials. Just watch tutorials, period; watch a lot of them.Each one will be doing at most one or two good / new / correct things, and the rest will be wrong, and your job as a beginner is to take each new and better way to do something and combine them all together to form your own superior technique. Consequently that means a time will come when you watch 90% of a tutorial and learn almost nothing, even possibly saying "Uh there's a better way to do [thing someone just did]" but then there'll be one or two things they do that you haven't seen before that you've been doing wrong until now (you and everyone you learned from) and now you've learned something new. That's just how it goes
>>660527Dis is true.
>>660500I'll just keep using Modo then. I can't stand blender pre 2.8.
>>660386how did you get those sparkles, also the back spikes look kind of deformed like the polygons are spazzing out but other than that looks bretty good
>>660355Thank you anon. I learn something new. Here is the final model.
>>660530If you have Modo you definitely should do UVs in Modo since it is better than Blender. Not only the packing but the unwrapping algorithm and other UV tools.
Modo is Blender done right.
>>660549Yep. I mean 2.8 is okay but the more I use it the more missing basic features I see. I think I'll stick with modo.
Are there any good tutorials for making stuff like helmets? I know how to make stuff like the doughnut and weapons but have no idea where to start with designing helmets and the only stuff I can find are timelapses
>>660578way too many polys wtf
Why won't these nodes display in my view as the world texture?
so I made a cup, now how do I achieve right pic?
>>660867>how do I achieve right pic?download daz
>>660868I mean in blender
>>660867>now how do I achieve right picDownload Second Life.
>>660867Most people who do stuff like that grew up doing 'serious' art and then became really thirsty and perverted once they already had the skills necessary to make stuff like that.By no means do I belive 'Girlfriend Forever' should be held up as work of a very high level but it is def of a level that demands a nod in recognition.If you are a artist who start out because you wanna make porn you typically never get anytwhere since you'll be too distracted by your own booner to learn.A good example is the famous manga author Masamune Shirow who compossed beloved work like 'Appleseed' and 'Ghost in the Shell'. He then fell down a flight of stairs and sustained a damage to the endochrine system in his brain after which he would only draw elaborate scenesfeaturing greased up girls being molested by horses/techdildos/BBC's/abstractCockMonsters etc. Basically you don't set out to do this, you need to become perverted somewhere along the journey.

>>661031This is made by @blendy_13
To anyone who the has Toonkit plugin, can it work with textures, or is it just flat material shading?
>>661049Ignore the picture, I was going to ask how to make it work, but I realized I didn't have it on Open Shading Language.
>>661031That is amazing
>>660527Or watch 1 good paid course by an expert and nail the fundamentals, then solve questions and tricky bits with tutorials
>>660889>you need to become perverted somewhere along the journeyWell, that will not be a problem...The thing is, I really like and admire the work of some 3d artists, in addition, for what many have told me and I have discovered I have a great facility to assimilate and understand things very quickly, and I would really like to create something myself.My question was obviously a "joke", but not my intrentions, that's why I'm looking for guides and tutorials that are preferably not so "simple" or "too easy", and more for "fast learning".
>>660535Sparkles? By not using enough samples X)
>>660867Use the force...You have an unlimited resource of willpower and wit, than you can tap whenever you feel tired, lonely, or disappointed at your work...Use the force of your dick.Ask yourself? Would I jack off to this? Does this shit turns me on? If it DOESN'T then you need to go on. Make her better, make her hotter. Use to your advantage the millions of years of evolution that made you a perverted piece of shit. You will learn everything you need to, to achieve your goal; anatomy, topology, texturing, rigging, you will learn it not by choice, or by discipline, but by mere power of lust. And at the end, the teachings will be engrained into your mind, into your soul, forever.You think ancient romans or renaissanse painters made "tasteful" nudes for the pleasure of learning anatomy? There's not such thing as tasteful nudity, they wanted to see Big ASSES and ABS and Butts and Dicks. That's how they got where they were. Following their dicks.

Real honest question from someone who dabbled in 3d like 15 years ago and is only getting back into it now:When you're accustomed to it and you know it like the back your hand, is blender's interface still a bizarre fucking mess that makes you contort your hands in impossible ways to make the gestures you need to do the most basic things?
>>661175Occasionally I do pretty funky hand contortions for certain functions, but they're not basic stuff and usually one-off. Honestly, use the Spacebar menu for everything. W menu's good too for quick access to basic functions.
>>661175blender is nothing like it was 15 years ago

>>661049Bump for my question
Is there any proper support for UDIM in Blender 2.8?Where you can map multiple parts of an object in different parts of same UV space by offsetting the tiles (pic related).I'm not really sure how to go about it in Blender. There's no real way to tell when you're in the next tile or not, and I'm quite sure it doesn't export to Substance Painter properly either.Any help, or an addon that works properly in 2.8 would be great.
>>661283>Is there any proper support for UDIM in Blender 2.8?lol no
>>661284Actually, I just gave it a go to see what happens and it kind of does work. At least enough for Substance Painter.There's no UI or anything for it though.Just gotta unwrap piece by piece and then add a 1,2,3,4,5 to the U coordinate after you unwrap.Threw it into Substance Painter with the UDIM option ticked, flipped on/off the different texture sets and the areas I had offset in the map worked.It's far from what I'd call proper implementation though. Blender really needs to work on that.
>>661287this wouldn't be hard to implement, at all.hopefully this will be a feature in 2.8a
>>661289Hopefully.Doing it by hand by manually inputting coordinates is pretty slow.It could be as simple as an option box like subdivide has for the cuts that lets you offset the U and V values. All it really needs to do is add the number to the base value when it unwraps.Why something like that hasn't been in since the start is beyond me. UDIM has been a thing since like 2002.
>>661290all you have to do is make an extra UV channel, but a blank one. udim's are not uv channels but i think the implementation should be something like that
>>661289I think a patch for making it work was submitted months ago (support for UDIM in Cycles or something like that), but, you know, priorities being what they are...
>>661291I've tried something like that before, but Substance doesn't like the multiple UV channels. It doesn't recognize them as different spaces or something.
Are there better alternatives to the donuts tutorial for someone starting out? Andrew Price kinda just rambles on about unrelated stuff in his tutorials.
>>661336yep, go through the borncg beginner playlist until you feel ready to create your own stuff.the lego man tutorial is very good as well.
I really like blender for everything but rigging/animation, why is the documentation so bad?Its honestly like they are doing it on purpose, just look at all the work required to just properly link a rig between characters compared to literally any other program.Literally its so bad i'm just thinking of switching to something else to not risk pouring tons of time into a base rig to only find out 200 hours later that it suddenly cant be edited in some way without breaking everything since i didn't change some placeholder setting from the start.
>>661428The reason is because rigging in Blender is hot garbage. They're going to completely rewrite it in 2020.https://www.blender.org/press/blender-projects-in-2018-to-look-forward-to/
>>661441In a year i could earn the money to buy a better program, learn it and finish the job 3 months quicker.
>>661428its because your'e shit at rigging.
>>661458Main issue was with linking, but hey I guess reading isn't one of your strengths. I guess writing isn't one of your strengths either since you aren't willing to share how you do it so efficiently?
>>661446That's 2-3 years from now, not 1 year. They will start rewriting their system in 2020 and be done whenever they're done. Eevee has taken at least two years since starting (began in 2016)
How would you go about making pic related (czech crystal)? I don't quite get those "shiny" faces. Lowering the roughness of the material doesn't do it. Is adding a glare a good idea or should I adjust the material?
>>661482You need to put more detail in the geometry, not the texture.
>>661460you didn't bother asking a question, or present an issue. you just kicked the doors saying blender sucks. why should i engage in such argument
>>661491>you didn't bother asking a question, or present an issue. you just kicked the doors saying blender sucks.>I really like blender for everything but rigging/animation, why is the documentation so bad?In the first fuckin' line. Jesus, not even that anon. Can you not act like a blendlet?>>661482>Is adding a glare a good idea or should I adjust the material?Assuming your geometry's good, what could be missing is glare/bloom. That post-processing effect easily gives that overexposed shine that metal needs.
>>661496that wasn't a question, just a rant
>>661506Well it was more of"I can't read the manual and it doesn't help, give me some easy to understand reference material to do whatever I need."It's fucking ambiguous and is more rhetorical than anything, though.
>>661508linking can work in 2 ways.1. link that maintains transform2. link that does not maintain transformi should point out, that linking has nothing to do with animation or rigging. even tho links are being used to connect different parts of a rig(sometimes).in theory, a link should be good enough to use when you want to transform 2 objects but its not enough since it won't move relative to the parent, it will just kinda move with it.you can make objects follow properly using copy & limit transform. it will allow ANY object to follow anything. so in theory, you little candle should follow the floor location on the z axis, which is why you want to copy the location.this can be confusing, and im not sure i gave the correct answer. but here is a videohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHJKIDZQIis
>>661428Rigging is a piece of crap, there's no doubt there. But it doesn't seem like you tried too hard.'Course, I can't help you here since I suck at rigging too (not just in Blender, but Maya as well). But this just feels like arrogance than a legitimate cry for help.
>>661111thanks, heres the head on the body
>>661496>>661484What would good geometry entail? Is pic related good enough? The number of faces is approximately the same as the rl version, I just added a bevel. Sorry if it is a retarded question, I'm new to the whole 3d thing.
>>661527Yes, you got the idea anon. The point is that what's catching the light isn't a difference in texture, it's that those little beads have flat planes on them that glint. The geometry doesn't have to match perfectly when they're so small. The next step is getting a good HDRI lighting setup to produce color variation and glinting.
>>661519>A link has nothing to do with riggingLets say i have created a really good human rig, now i want to use that rig on 20+ models which is how essentially every single proffesional game/movie production works. Now in any other software, i can simply link the rig in, weigh all models to it and it just werks. Then if i update the rig because my animator (or me in a solo project) realise something is missing from it i can simply add it to the rig and it is automagically propagated to the other models.Now, compare that to all the BS you have to do in blender if youre using an advanced rig and tell me with a straight face that it is easy.
>>661519Dunno why you're replying to me. I wasn't the guy asking, just giving some clarification for his "question". Hopefully the dude got the info though.
Give me a character modelling related noobie project for exercise. I lose motivation and leave whatever project I choose for myself.
>>661597Do a low-poly character under 1000 polys and hand-paint it (pure diffuse). You need restrictions and small projects. Set yourself a time limit. Get this thing done in under a week. A robot is even easier than a human. Do it properly, get references, maybe watch some tutorials before, define a clear goal and work towards it.
>>661556then use maya, do the thing you just said and come back and show us.
>>661610Why would he ought to?
>>661617because he needs to prove that what hes saying is true.not calling him a liar or anything, but with all the software wars going around these days you never know
>>661610I use this kind of workflow every day lol, super straightforward in maya.Start with an empty file.- Reference Editor -> Create Reference - Reference in scene with geometry - Reference in scene with rig- Do your skin bind.Now any edits to the geometry file or the rig file will be propagated to the final output file.
>>661556>now i want to use that rig on 20+ models i don't get it. do you want your rig to interact with other models or be a part of the same armature?do you want to combine different armatures so you can weight paint them all at once? you are being very vague here and its not helping. help me to help you my dude.anyways, if you want to give everything weight select all the objects in the scene and then the your main rig at the end, click ctrl+L animation data or modifiers (not sure which).mind you, im researching this as i go. and im positive there is a much better method
>>661620you mean this?
>>661628this can help btwhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNOCSor0U5Y
Anyone done this course? "Hard Surface Modeling in Blender "https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=198&v=0CSjRBzio0wIt's on cgpeers. Looks good.
>>661651I've done it. Downloaded the numerous Gigabytes only to realize after watching it, that it contains barely something i don't already know. But i learned at least 5 new shortcuts. At least there is that. But if you are a noob its quite good, maybe even too difficult from time to time. (listening to Gleb is a nightmare, i hate this dude, solely based on his shitty jokes and terrible accent)
I see. I might do this one below instead. I agree his voice is horrible. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHo9hNksMuw
>>661656I don't want to stop you from doing it, its a good course, but i think i already know a lot about hard surface stuff, i expected some secrets, but there is only so much you can learn until you exhaust the topic. I would advice to do as much courses as possible so why not do both?
>>661620This guy gets it. Now look at those steps and now look and realise that the same thing in blender is a 30 minute tutorial.>>661628Yes, and that is easy to use, but if you try and do that with a rig the rig will be broken on import, and before you ask yes even after adding it as a proxy as well.How do you make it not broken? Its something like 15 steps with settings in 9 places. The reason always given? "Its an artifact from way back, this will be fixed later".>>661626So let me paint up a scenario alittle more clearly.I built a rig for mr human. It has control bones, custom bone shapes, all sorts of constraints and drivers etc. I've then animated this rig with a set of standard animations, like walking, sitting etc. What i would then do in for example Maya is create a new file, create a Viking model, reference the rig and then weight the mesh to the rig. If i then add any new animations to the rig, or any new bones, these will be added to the Viking (at which point i'll have to weight paint them in). Then i can at the same time have a Mr Soldier, Mr Knight model etc all done the same way. This is how ALOT of professional game and movie animation/rigging is done.The problem is that in Blender, that "reference the rig" step, is broken specifically for rigs and requires workaround on workarounds that aren't documented anywhere.
>>661672That's fucked up. No wonder people scoff about Blender, disregard it, and use Maya. I am currently learning rigging and you just made an very compelling argument for Maya and against Blender. Thank god that i decided to use the right tool for the job and didn't listen to the Blender-fanboys.
>>661672>Its an artifact from way back, this will be fixed laterI fucking hate this halfassed reasonhonestly for fucks sake it seems that there isn't a single package out there that doesn't have this pathetic excuse
>>661672i admit the problem and im not covering for blender here.but since im not a rigger or an animator, i don't 'fully' understand the problem. what i would do to get around it is simply assign mr. viking to a group and hide the group, then make the new character ontop.but generally speaking, proper linking should be a thing since its literally how multiple artists can work around a given rig.
>>661713The problem with that is that I'd end up with one MEGA file that would be impossible to properly source-controll or work with other people simultaneously.Do also note that I'm not salty about lost time, I haven't actually done an advanced character with anims yet, only small examples to test if it was possible.
Anyone here want to make a short film with me? There's some film festivals starting soon and I wanna make a short film but would prefer to work in a team. Have you seen the criteria to be a "short film" it's all absolute garbage and I know I can at least make that.A quick 5-10 min short film with a small team and who knows maybe we can be the next katawa shoujo, probably not but you never know.
>>661738i can do compositing,modeling and texturing (to some extent)i also know my way around cycles, i only lack animation and rigging skills
>>661738>coming to /3/ to find people willing to work on a large project like a short film>for freeDoomed before you even began.
>>661784"Large project" this shit would take like a week to a month tops. This isn't a money making scheme there's no way to make money from this unless you sell the thing outright ands no one is going to buy a short animated film. I just want to make something good, cuz I know with our combined autism we can make something great. https://youtu.be/TH3HOcRayC8 This oscar nominated piece of shit is literally the competition we're up against. We can make something better than that no doubt.>>661743Thanks anon you have any contact info? Even a trash email you just made would suffice, don't worry I'm just tentatively collecting contact info I'm not committing you to the project or anything.

>>661986>>661988isn't this my name?sorry I'm using discord first time.. and it's kinda wierd,,>Gam3B0y#0795 I copied this now
>>662007ok I sent you a request
>>659820I'm new to PBR materials and used https://3d-wolf.com/products/materials.html plug in for quick materials.Is there a way to import/install/save new pbr settings for this? Alternatively, is there a better pbr add on with more range of materials/allows for importing easily?I can find new pbr materials, but I have to set them up manually with node editor. I am looking for an easier solution, something I can just drag the files into and it works.
>>662047>I am looking for an easier solution, something I can just drag the files into and it works.The Principled shader is meant for this, just connecting the textures with all the required settings and it's usually enough. Aren't you using it?
>>662047your'e late to the party m8. blender already has PBR (principled shader).to save a custom material just make a .blend file with all the materials you want to save. then in your project file click append then select materials/shaders from the top row and click ok
>>662050I am, I just thought there might be a way to throw the maps into a folder and have it as a preset to easily apply it on different models across different projects.
>>662051Cool, thanks! Another question, is there a way to get .mat files into blender?
>>662054you mean the file .mtl? or the material file from blender?you can't export material files, but a .blend file with materials alone will be lightweight as an .mtl file
>>662055I mean vray .mat I guess. Not really sure, I just saw some neat looking material stuff on a website for vray resources and grabbed a file but it was .mat which I think only works in 3ds max. It's all new to me.
>>662056every render engine have its own material system.same can be done with cycles. i saw a guy include materials with several textures in 1 file, it can be done if you append files properly (be it blender or 3ds max)
>>662052Just append the material.Just make a folder with blend files with your materials, then whenever you need them in a project, File>Append>(your material .blend)>MaterialBoom. I've got a library of commonly used materials that I can quickly drop into a project whenever I need them. Mostly procedural, but there's a few PBR's thrown in there too.You can just link them too, but it'll change the settings for the material across the board and all your other projects if you do that.
>>661992>>662007>>661988Okay I've sent out the fr
It seems that I've somehow fucked up with my settings, becuase every time I spawn a mesh it faces my camera view, rather than stay at all 0 in rotation.Is there any way to fix that?
>>662047My friend is making something like this. Basically the use case is to export an XML file that goes alongside an fbx when you export assets from Maya Max etc.https://github.com/jensnt/pbr-material-importer
I'm trying to model a plate as part of some last supper scene or some shit. I can't get rid of that ugly bit where the lines show up. How can I make them smooth?
>>662154And this is the bottom of the plate. The thingy that supports it in the center is looking very nice, but on the outer side you can see the same artifacts as from above.
>>662155This is the geometry from above.
>>662156And it's the same from the bottom, plus the thingy.
>>662157Now, these edges here were created as an attempt to fix the artifact. But they didn't do anything other than making the corners more round.
>>662158This is how it looks if I undo those edges. The artifacts never changed. Tell me how to make this plate beautiful or otherwise it's gonna be Judas' plate and then I'll have to figure out how to make a nicer one for Jesus. What do?
>>662154>>662155>>662156>>662157>>662158>>662159By the way, I am already using the smooth thing in the shader setting, and I'm also using the subdivision modifier at level 3.
>>662160Start with a flat cube and select the top face extrude, but don't move itscale the extrusion down insideadd loop cuts north-south, east-westoptionally dissolve the 4 middle faces
>>662160Your geometry is wrong.Get rid of the edge loops that make the thing on the bottom. Just have the 9 faces on the top and bottom.Then extrude the bottom and inset the face to make the lip. Throw some edge loops on the side faces to make it sharp, and if you want it square just throw some more support loops at it.Also, your faces are doing a weird thing at the corners of the plate when not subdivided. They're bending in a way that doesn't really make sense so that might be contributing, but it fixes itself when subdivided.
>>662162>Throw some edge loops on the side faces to make it sharpyou do realize you dont have to put those edge loops there right? just use the creases ffs
>>662166Yeah I know. I just didn't want to make it more complicated than it needed to be. I mean adding edge loops does that, but it doesn't seem like he knows much about creases.
>>662171no its still bad practice no one does that method anymore
>>662174OK, that's fine.I'm not going to make excuses for a plate. I did what I did because I did it. I don't usually subdiv model. I prefer using bevels and edge weights.
>>662174Friendly reminder that 1. Creases can't be easily exported to game engines or other DCCs2. Supporting edge loops give you more control over UVs than creases 3. Polycount doesn't really matter these days, so edge loops are nearly free
>>662213none of those statements are true, nice bait tho.
>>662227I'd like to see why
>>662213>Polycount doesn't really matter these days, so edge loops are nearly freeThis has to be bait.
>>662280Not that anon but plus minus a few thousand polygons ain't gonna change the render performance of a game. It's more about the number objects and how they're sorted and how heavy the shaders are to fill in that will be the limiting factor.While you can't waste polygons everywhere, generally you can use as many as you need to accomplish your goals. It's not uncommon for important characters in AAA's to be in the order of ~100K triangles these days.
>>662283>It's not uncommon for important characters in AAA's to be in the order of ~100K triangles these days.I bet most of that has to be going into face, hair and elbows\knees\pelvis\shoulders
>>662283heres the thing tho, creases are much easier to control then edge loops especially with an modifier to make a set out of them
>>662294>an modifierNobody believes you Pajeet. Edge loops are as peachy dory as it gets.
>>662294I would argue the opposite. My experience with creases is they're always too sharp and look fake. Edgeloops are easier to keep smooth just by making them a little wider.
>>662283>Not that anon but plus minus a few thousand polygons ain't gonna change the render performance of a game.It will in the medium-long term. Blendlets are so out of touch with quality standards.
>>662283I'm pro edgeloops for hi-res models but where would you have them in a game model?
>>662388In the joints. It is known that back in 1999 Turok already had about 1k edges in every joint. Multiply that by almost 20 years and it all makes sense now.
>>662377>>662384you cant manage edge loops as well as you can creases tho
What does he do at 2:02? I try to grab the face and intrude it (is that a term), but with me it makes a 90 degree angle in the limit instead of that diagonal slope. How do I get the diagonal slope?https://youtu.be/LtIbS1BqhU8?t=122
>>662411Select the face and press g then z and move your mouse? Alternatively drag the blue arrow down.
>>662411>>662412wait, I think I know what your problem is. press a until everything is selected then in panel labled "tools" on the left of the screen click the button at the bottom labeled remove doubles. Then select only the face you want to move down and move it down
>>662413Dude that was it thanks a lot. But why did that happen? Do I have to just remove duplicates for everything I make as a protocol or something went wrong?
>>662411he said he inset the faces
>>662418>>662413thats a roundabout way of doing it, just use inset faces dude.
>>662418You accidently extruded and then deselected the extruded face. It happens to us all more often than anyone would like to admit.Clicking out after pressing e doesn't remove the extruded vertices, it does that so you can do other stuff with an extruded face like scaling it and whatnot. 90% of the time problems can be solved by pressing remove duplicates, applying location rotation and scale, and moving your origin point. You'll encounter those problems in the future.>>662420He'll learn that soon enough.
>>662421but the video literally says to use inset
Made jiggling butt/thighs using bones parented to a cloth physics mesh. (Newest 2.8 beta turned my texture pink.)
>>662426I don't speak whatever language is in the video, I can see the keys pressed though. E does not inset unless he has it bound to inset, which would be really weird for a tutorial with screencast on.
>>662427I haven't actually really touched it yet, but I think I saw an option in 2.8's bones for bendy bones. I think that's jiggle stuff.Like I said though, I'm not actually sure that's what it does, but I'd give it a look if I were you.
>>660063google Humane rigging
>>661107Lear the software, got that? goodLearn anatomyhttps://mega.nz/#F!es1BSKQR!spODyd0iaQmMelGA2GscFwthere you go, art resources. Why drawing resources you ask? If you wanna make humans you must understand the human body.Watch people sculpt, model, draw, whatever. If you wanna make something pay attention to their techniques.
I'm having an issue joining some meshes.When joined (with no modifiers) the first mesh has a different texture than the one joined. the verts are lined up as quads. The problem is exacerbated when adding a subdivision surface modifier.Tried deleting every face on the mesh and just pressing F but this creates some fucky bugs when adding a solidify modifier which crashes blender in the render. I need the solidify modifier. Is there a way to smooth or normalize (don't know any way to explain it) the underlying mesh?
>>662443Bendy bones is for making snake-like things. Blender doesn't have any physics bones (that I know of) To make my own jiggle bone, I made a small thin pyramid, gave it cloth physics with a pinned base, and parented it to the leg bone. When the leg moves, the top of the pyramid jiggles. Then I made a new bone also parented to the leg bone, in the same position as the pyramid mesh, then set a rotation constraint to match the pyramid mesh. Then I edited vertex weights to the region around the new bone.
>>6622131 and 2 are true, 3 is wrong especially if you are going to use several models in one scene.
>>662450show more of the mesh please, not just a closeup view
>>662459Got the face method to work.Could have been sort of bug? Not sure what did it though. Could have been maxing out on memory, closed a few background programs. Also deleted old uvs and re-ordered mesh modifiers also moved everything I needed to a new file. Made new materials new uvs. ect ect. Thanks anyways.
Starfleet reporting in.
>>662447That is a damn fine collection. Thanks for sharing the link.
>>662453Ah my bad, still I just took a look at the bendy bones and that's some cool stuff too. I can't think of any uses for my own stuff, but it definitely looks interesting.I ended up doing something similar with softbodies a while back rigging up a car suspension. Just thought that 2.8 would finally have something less hacked together. It's kind of a shame. 2.8 is shaping up pretty nicely but there's still so many oversights that haven't been fixed since 2.7 started. The UI is nice and all, and I love working with Eevee, but there's still a bunch missing from the core that needs some love.
Rendered a Daz model in Eevee and Cycles, not changing any settings except the exposure on eevee to match cycles.Cycles took 2m 45s to renderEevee took 0.64s to renderCan you tell which side is which render engine?
>>662570Eevee on the left?
>>662570I don't have experience with Eevee, but I'd say it's the right one, because of (what I guess is) bad mipmapping (noticeable around the eye), the banding, and the absence of noise. The lack of noise is a plus, but the other two points should be solved for a more fair comparison.
Thoughts on my freeway lane?
>>662593I found a free asphalt texture online because I have no idea how to create my own, but the texture has to be repeated a every square foot or so on this model. I don't know what to do about this ugly repeating pattern on the road.
>>662598go outside and take a picture. then use gimp or photoshop to make seamless. plenty of tutorials for that. but if you don't want to, here, have one of mine.
>>662599Only problem with that is then I won't have the roughness or normal map. Unless there is a good way to generate those with a picture I take.
>>662600there is. https://store.steampowered.com/app/441770/MindTex_2/but if you'd like, i can do that too.
>>662598>>662600Check the pastebin link in the /wip/ OPs. Plenty of resources there.
>>662606>>662605>>662603>>662602>>662600>>662599Thanks. I'll post an update tomorrow when I get it figured out.
>>660527I think a lot of us have this fear of "learning wrong" and getting into bad habits from using bad/outdated tutorials
>>662602These tools seem to pop up now like mushrooms, some still paid, some free. What tool in that category gives the best results?
>>662636Well, given how many there are, the only real answer is to just try them out and see which works best. Sift through all the free ones and pick the ones that give you the result you're looking for. Given that these tools are basically applying regular image filters to your source image, chances are free ones won't differ too much from paid options unless they're using some Super Special Proprietary Algorithm (and even in that case the results still can't differ that much from each other).
>>662598Greetings, Anon. Another option you have is to mix in another image or color via procedural texture plugged into a mix factor. Then tweak the color ramp to get your look. Hint: take the output of the color ramp into a diffuse shader while adjusting, that way you can see your tweaking more clearly. Then when you have it use the color ramp as the mix factor. This has been known to have a 83.4 percent success rate among 3D ensigns. Starfleet out.
>>662655God, imagine seriously LARPing on 8th slowest board on 4chan. Anyway, plug it into an Emission shader instead of diffuse. Gives you an effectively shadeless preview of your texture(s) when you're in render preview mode. Especially helpful when working with procedurals.
>>662657>God, imagine seriously LARPing on 8th slowest board on 4chan.slowest boards attract weirdest characters

>>662666Looks like some stuff straight outta Starblade
>>662666This looks good
>>662666i actually like it, from the top it looks like some kind of wyvern, also makes me think of wipeouti wonder what the fuck's wrong with the front thoughwould be worth trying to paint it like a ps1 model imo
>>662686>>662685>>662678Thanks guys,i actually picked up blender 2 days ago, just to make wipeout models that i always wanted as a kid. There is obviously other sci fi inspiration in there. gonna work on my first attempts to plate it this weekend!
>>662666Don't be fooled though, this wasnt easy lol
>>662718Yes... do keep us posted...(wa ha ha ha ha)
I'm trying to bake this fucking tower merlon for couple of hours and the result is not that I expected. I think that it supposed to generate the normal map of the whole mesh, not a single face.Any ideas what am I doing wrong here?
>>662770your uv map only has 1 face?
>>662770Check the UV map of your low-poly.
>>662776>>662777Holy shit, that works!Guess I totally forgot about this, cause I baked some stuff recently and it was just fine.Thank you, /3/.
I found a model which had a shape I wanted. I've gone through some retopology to get things cleaner, and decided to try a real quick armature test to see how the topology deforms. The image shows both the original and my retopo'd version being manipulated by exactly the same armature, with automatic weights. My version is the red one.Why is this fuckery happening? I did this test a few hours back and got things working exactly how I wanted, it moved just like the original, and I haven't significantly changed the topology since then. I pretty much shrinkwrapped the entire model so the shape is nearly identical, I have slightly more tris, I used a mirror modifier (All modifiers except the armature have now been applied), etc.
>>662816>Why is this fuckery happeninyour weights are too strict, and you probably don't have enough polys in the plevis area
>>662823I have more polys than the original. Even if that was the case, it doesn't explain why the automatic weights are putting some weight for the left leg bone on the right side of the mesh on my version, whereas the original keeps it entirely on the right side? I don't know what you mean by weights are too strict. I applied automatic weights to both meshes in the same manner.
>>662826well i read your post, and i look at the image again.just explain some stuff to me1.why are your bones so big? im not saying the bone size matter, but maybe it does. the bones don't have to be humongous.2.why do you work with overlapping mesh? just hide whatever you don't need or move it to a different layer.3.what is the problematic mesh? the red or the white one? and what IS the problem exactly?
>>662816>>662826Fixed it somehow by applying loc/rot/scale. Must've done something to fuck that up during the retopo phase.>>662837Well the overlapping mesh was to show how things were differing. You can see in the image that my mesh, the red one, has the right leg moving away from the base mesh, the original, despite me only moving the left leg up. Basically the weights were just applied weirdly despite working how I wanted on the original mesh.Not that it matters now. Not sure exactly what the issue was, but the loc/rot/scale fixed it.
I vertex painted the walls to be able to blend different textures. However, when I apply Subdivision Surface modifier this shit happens. Why?
Does anyone have a cartoon skin node tree they like to use that isn't cell shading? >>662875This is a sculpt? And you applied a subdivision to the sculpt?
>>662882>This is a sculpt? And you applied a subdivision to the sculpt?Here are screenshots of the mesh before I am applying subdivision. I want subdivision to have more details in my cave.Is there a better way to get a nice blending of the two walls and the floor textures than using Vertex Colors?
Any of you use the godot game engine with your blender work? I had a good time with unreal and modo in the past.
>>662908I don't think subdivision would be an answer to your problem unless you found a tutorial that specifically calls for this approach.I would do this manually with a stencil.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ryi_pYqcavs&t=295s at 17:28
I add an area light in Blender but it shows something similar to a sun light icon instead of the 'window' thing. What is going on?
>>662929I figured it out, apparently the default light size is like microscopic or some shit. I just had to make it 1000 times bigger.
Is the "Complete Blender Creator" course on udemy any good? Don't really wanna shell out 20 bucks if there's better shit out there for free
>>662948uhhh not more than borncg beginner series on youtube.there are good paid courses out there but for beginners its best to start on youtube
>>662916Thanks for the help, I wasn't aware of the stencil tool. However, I also wish to use the displacement modifier..
>>662948I paid ten bucks for it, I regret it. It's bad. I'd suggest CGCookie instead.
What would you say are the models everyone should learn to model at least once? What would you add or remove from this list?>car -- hard surf with studio lighting>interior -- archviz>human -- organic>robot/weapon -- hard surf with finer details>creature -- sculpt from imagination with references
>>662993I would add just one thing,>doughnut -- Blender
>>662948Best tutorial I ever did was the CG Cookie Porsche -- and it's free! Instead of modeling the Porsche, I chose a Ferrari 512 TR. Different enough that I was actually learning instead of just following along. I watched the series on 1.5x speed, took some notes, then tried modeling the 512 on my own. When I ran into problems, I knew approximately where to go in the video since I'd watched it already. I pushed through to the end topology-be-damned. Once I had a finished model, I had an idea of what mistakes I'd made and what improvements to make. So I re-did it and it came out much better topology-wise. Much more planning on my part. I also used 2.7x instead of 2.4x which made me think on my own instead of just following directions. I had to Google a few things, but it pushed me outside my comfort zone which is how you learn.https://www.youtube.com/user/blendercookie/search?query=porsche
i took my first steps today and made a sword. i didnt get to colour it in because something went wrong towards one of the last steps so i had to cut it short which was a shame.also apparently shift d doesnt duplicae but my tutorial said it does???after that i made a simple person out of a sphere and two cylenders. idk what to do with this though and im not sure if i want to continue with blender, it seems too hobby core, and im looking to do game model.dev
>>663008looks great, they have this for free while the jeep tutorial from cgmasters costs money. both are equally good (altho cgmasters one does the final render)
>>663011These two will take you 99% the rest of the way. At least enough to start creating a preference and learning a few things.car shader:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LcTVoPDm_VMstudio lights:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zA_MwBAGv0
>>663015btw what are the stuff you learned here that you didn't learn from regular tuts?i think masterclass tuts like this is what bumps artists to the next level.
>>663017It's a bit hard to express in words, but I would say something like "volume". With a vehicle, you often have shapes moving in three directions. Take the hood, for instance. Every extrusion needs to be raised along the Z axis in front and side view, then you must enter into top view and move them along the X and Y axis. But more importantly, if you do one extrusion correct, the next comes much easier and you're much more likely to create smooth transitions from edge to edge. Then you have pieces that aren't connected, but the edges have to line up (such as the door and the body of the car). You want to commit to the shape or you'll be doing lots of pushing and pulling. I don't want to pretend there isn't some wiggle room, because there is, but in a lot of ways you need to get this absolutely perfect. An organic model is much more forgiving, but the surface of a car benefits from absolutely zero shading/lightings artifacts. You've really got to get your shit together.It's extremely gratifying, though. I modeled cars for a long time before moving onto other things, because I found them challenging and relaxing at the same time. If you ever put those plastic Revell kits together as a kid, this is just about as fun. Maybe even better because you can render out many different colors.
>>659820Hello, guys, new to blender and trying to follow the warwick fundamentals video on blender but I can't get it to give me sharp rectangular borders no matter what borders i crease.
>>663194If you have a subdivision surface modifier on it, you will need to add an edge loop with ctrl+r and slide it right up close to the edge of the model
>>663220Well, that kind of sucks :/
>>663224Having to add geometry for that.
>>663225IIRC, you have to select an edge that is shared by two or more facesthat's why your creasing doesn't work here, because it's at the endthis model doesn't have enough polygons for a few controlling edges to really matter. what could you possibly be doing where adding geometry is bad?
>>663194i have a possible solution for you, if you can explain what you're wantingis it just that one side you want curved, and the opposite side with right angles?
>>663243I want a curve that has a rectangular tip like this one.
>>663245Based on my understanding of the problem, I can't seem to get it to work. Maybe if I understood a little more about what it was you were trying to accomplish, I could help. Is this going to be used in the array modifier?
>>663251Nothing special, that's how turbosmooth works in 3ds max, and I'm trying to follow the warwick essentials that are on cgpeers, he's following the flow lines in a car. I guess it's more of an aesthetic concern, but it doesn't let me see clearly where the edge is facing to with the subsurf modifier on.
>>663252Like you were told add an edge loop to each side, but the only difference is you add the edge loop after completing the swirl.
what are the best light settings for a space scene? the reflections look like there are multiple major light sources
>>663305well the sun, earth, and moon are three light sources, right?
>>663305Tone down that CA a lot more, makes it look like your entire image is blurred.Realistic lighting would be to have just one sun lamp with the size set to 0 for hard shadows as nothing exists to diffuse light in space. Of course, hard shadows that are completely black aren't the nicest, so you should add another sun lamp that opposes your main sun lamp to act as a fill. It adds ambient lighting and makes your scene less harsh and boring at the cost of stark realism.The moon will reflect some light as well (albedo/planetshine), you can attempt to fake that by adding another sun lamp coming from the moon that's the same colour as the moon surface.
Any good resources on making procedural materials?
>>663847Yup. Stay tuned for Adobe's upcoming material authoring and painting suite.https://theblog.adobe.com/gaming-technology-changing-design-visualize-products
>>662447thank you senpai
why does this happen to the shadow?I'm using a spot lamp
>>663994recalculate normals if your model has lighting issues
>>663994a) split edges, b) lighting too harsh, c) model is too low-poly, d) normal map is too strong, e) any combo of the above. a) remove doubles, b) redo lighting, c) add subsurf (protip: ctrl+[0-6] is your subdiv hotkey), d) turn down strength.
>>663994Is this cycles? If so, it's a lighting issue that cycles has, forgot what it's called... something about terminator. Try just increasing subdivisions.
Im am coming back to blender from 2 years of doing nothing 3d-wise and downloaded 2.80. Is it worth it to get used to that version and ditch 2.79?The program looks smooth and Im really liking not having the 3d cursor in the left click, but Im still struggling with using right click for selection from muscle memory, all tutorials are outdated now and some hotkeys, like set origin, stopped working.Im planning to do dumb stuff for myself in my free time, nothing professional.
>>664042>Is it worth it to get used to that version and ditch 2.79?Yes. It's the version moving forward after all. It's pretty buggy and unstable being a prerelease, but once all the bugs are fixed up and 2.8 becomes official it's going to be a fairly comfy program to use.
>>664051ment 2 show the wireframe
>>664045Thanks man, I will press on. Even though I will have to re-learn a bunch of stuff, I really like the changes.
How come when I bring my road model into unity it looks like this when I place two consecutive pieces side by side? It looks fine in Blender.
>>664100Obviously I have them rotated in 180 in the pictures, but still there is something weird going on. Is it a lighting issue?
>>664101Did you repeat the texture? The only way I would know how to fix it easily would be to shorten the road to fit the length of the texture. Then just double the road up in unity for the desired length.
I keep trying to UV unwrap a seamless texture onto my model, but the areas I marked seams on are still obvious and the texture size seems to be inconsistent.How do I remedy this? The UV unwrapping tutorials on YouTube aren't really helping me.
>>664105That image shows two instances of the model placed next to eachother in each program. The texture is repeatable so that the model should be able to do that seamlessly
>>664152What I mean is that the left shows 2 instances of the model and the right also shows 2 instances of the model, but in blender the texture is seamlessly repeating, but not in Unity.
>>664150if you used mapping node and upped the scale on each axis by 2 and its not repeating the problem is with the texture
>>664153I have faith in you anon. The only thing I can think of is that you're losing resolution somehow in unity.
>>664150There's an Average Island Scale command in the UV editor, in the UV menu. That should fix the size inconsistencies. The stretch overlay set to size can be helpful too, during unwraping.Seams will be noticeably by nature if you try to UV map to a seamless texture, there's no way around that.You could bake the texture to a proper UV layout then fix any seams with the Clone Stamp in Texture Painting Mode.
>>664174i want to add to this.raster images have pixels, and the more you stretch those pixels, the more blurry the image will get.if you want to avoid this use vector images, which can only be used as procedural textures, however- im not sure where to get some
>>664175>>664150Yeah, the both the angle and scale mode of the stretch overlay is useful.Don't stretch UV-s too much if you can avoid it.
>>664100Check the model normals. It seems like they are being lost on export, or replaced in import.
who the hell's making new generals when this one ain't even at bump yetfinal bump I guess.new:>>664179>>664179
>>664100>>664105>>664172I figured it out. I just had to change this value to "None"
>>664308Not "none" actually, but "calculate".
>>664052yeah, how did you do that?
>>659820Any suggestions on doing a tileable orange peel texture for a wall made of gypsum/sheet rock?
>>665157Preferably procedural. Gonna try to start with the texture in my link as a base, but I need to flatten some of the bump mapping somehow.http://www.minimaexpresion.es/en/piel-de-naranja-procedural/Pic related is what I want to go for.
>>665157>>665159nevermind getting a good approximation with a musgrave texture and some ramp shaders
guys i have annoying issue with blender. When i select something and need to select something close to that selection the fucking selection cursor is too big and makes it unable to select other thing.help?
>>660278>learn your fundamentals first >every resource is either first time launch interface introduction or step by step scene tutorials How the fuck am I supposed to learn the basics
I'm trying to make spherical slimes press up against a flat surface (Force Field) and have them deform so that they don't pass through but their faces get really squished against the surface. Is there any tool that can deform objects when they get to close?
