Stop it, Pablo. We need you to work on the texturing tools, not make fucking Quad Draw 2.0.

It really feels a bit like he gets himself into WAY too many projects at once but we'll see how this will turn out.
Maybe he just has several projects so that he doesn't get too frustrated when it doesn't flow well on one and then you work on some other project to clear your mind a bit. At least that's what I do in art projects and it works well if you don't get overboard with the amount of shit you start and actually finish them too.

Noob question. I was just putting in some keyframes and suddenly my rig will move but the mesh won't move with it. What gives? I could move it when the bone locations were yellow but I can't move them when they're green and I'm not sure why.

Whats the point? Everyone and their grandma uses substance for texturing anyway, and once you get a taste there's no going back to photoshop or w/e.

>>
>>695970
the dev of it forces some format bullshit on you that only his program uses, so fuck him
>>
>>695980
The point is that Blender tries to be a complete package that has everything you need and even they admit that their painting are is insufficient compared to the alternatives.
Pablo is doing a great job and delivered so far so I have no doubt that he will eventually get there after the sculpting branch got merged with the master. He seems to be a bit annoyed by the current viewport of Blender so I'd bet he is also really trying together with all the others to get that fixed too because more and more people seem to complain about the slow edit mode performance.
>>
>>695983
*their painting mode
>>
>>695907
Why? It makes more sense to make blender even more up to standard (or ahead of) for modeling and sculpting than it does texturing, as literally every software textures in substance anyway

Well there are quite a few sculpters who add geometry on their sculpting mesh. For example quick sculpts where the clothing is part of the same mesh.
Then again it is in any case smarter to have things separate. But I have to say things get choppy wayyyy before 400k are reached, at least on my PC.

>>696080
>>696086
Am I missing something? My understanding is that "rigging" means not just building a skeleton and binding the skin, but also building a full set of control surfaces for it. The joints and binding can be transferred in an FBX, but the controls probably can't be unless they're limited to very simple parent constraints. A sufficiently complicated rig gets DCC-specific very quickly (set driven keys, custom attributes).

So what exactly do you mean by "quick rigging jobs"? Skeleton only? Am I completely out of touch... maybe moving full rigs between packages is commonplace now?

if you are an artist who can’t put the work in to make money, then no amount of paid software will change it. It’s not the tools but the end result that earns money with art, I have my doubts that the people talking shit about blender users is anything but jealousy, you had to pay for your tools and they didn’t.
Unless you pirate your software, in that case you’re no better than the “poor” people you hate on. If you actually had fuck you money, you wouldn’t waste your time on imageboards being salty.

Then try to render an huge Micheal Bay style explosion with Blender instead of using Houdini or Max +FumeFX and see how far you'll get (nowhere near realism).
It's the ability of the artist AND the ability of the tool. Tools are NOT equal. Neither are Artist.
>I have my doubts that the people talking shit about blender users is anything but jealousy, you had to pay for your tools and they didn’t.
Nah man, if you are earning money, the tools pay for them self and if you work for somebody else you don't pay for your tools, they do.
Also tax offsets are a thing.
And why should people be jealous?
>Unless you pirate your software, in that case you’re no better than the “poor” people you hate on.
Its not about being poor, its about having access to the best tools for the job so you don't have to waste precious lifetime. Use better tools and do more in the time or reach a higher level of quality.
You can sculpt a piece of cloth for days or sim it in Marvelous Designer in 10 minutes and it will look as good or better.

It appears to have it for the slide operation only: https://blender.stackexchange.com/questions/27980/preserve-uvs-when-modifying-topology
>>
>>696298
Yeah, but that's not enough. With Max and Maya it's very easy it and it just works, but apparently Blender doesn't have anything like that. But I could swear I've seen a Gleb Alexandrov's video once where he showed how to do it. Actually I'll have to try to find it now. But otherwise, there's a Magic UV addon you can add in preferences, and it has a "lock" option which is supposed to function like Preserve UVs, but the problem is it is very buggy and if you start moving vertices too far away at some point the texture gets fucked and errors start appearing.

how important is it to avoid tri's in mesh modeling?
going through a cgcookie tutorial series and he stresses how you should only ever use tri's instead of quads when they have a specific purpose
but after looking through some models online, plenty of people use tri's at points where they arent serving any purpose other than allowing for more quads, but the models still look great
>>
>>696329
If your model doesn't deform, it doesn't matter if you use quads or tris, outside the ease of modeling.
>>
>>696344
by deform do you mean rigging or anything that moves the model's individual parts at all?
and if the model does deform, does that mean you should avoid tris?
>>
>>696344
Even if it doesn't deform, it matters if one is going to subdivide it, especially for hard-surface models. Subdivided tris = shading artifacts.

I keep everything on an SSD, I tried linking files, no improvement. How does the foundation make movies when every single file has so much undo delay?

They don't have such a problem. First, they block everything in Maya. And then, once they know what they need to do, they reproduce everything on Blender. This is how they find what needs to be improved on the software. And they don't need to undo anything, ever.

Read up on topology or watch some tutorials before continuing modelling.
One look at the model and i know that you are just wasting your time trying to find this out by yourself, nor will you get enough answers here without wasting time, nor will this thing ever look like a proper plane.
Go straight to the core of the problem which is you don't know shit about topology and you can easily change that fact in 30 minutes.
I don't have some recommendations, sorry, but you'll find plenty on youtube or ask google.
TL;DR
This model is fucked, cursed and un-salvageable for somebody like you, learn some basics and try again from scratch.

Do what the other anon said, you can do this shit and get good in 200 years, or actually study about modelling techniques and get good in a week
>>
>>697019
>>697023

Topology basics are these:

Always aim for quads (4 vertices per face), and avoid tris (3 vertices per face). Try to keep each face as regular as you can (so close to a square, but it doesn't HAVE to be exactly a square of course).

When you have the low poly of your model completed, subdivide it twice to bring it up.

But really, do read up on proper topology. Also, follow along with some tutorials. There are some amazing ones on youtube (donuts!)

From what I can tell for whatever reason Nvidia has been massively fucking up their Linux drivers since the 4xx drivers came out. I never had a single problem with the 3xx era drivers.

>415 - after a while application after application stops "updating" and visually freezes and only refreshes if you manipulate it in a way like dragging the window. sometimes the whole desktop environment gets it but then it's completely game over and you have to fucking restart.

>418 - fixed that problem but now any older applications that need 32bit OpenGL don't run anymore because they fucked up in that area and the 32bit drivers for it won't load

>430 - won't even fucking let me boot and is stuck in a display flickering boot loop

I think i finaly got the fucking hair shader right. Same from before but custom Specular texture made a lot of difference.

I need C&C before i start to rig. That's the game character i created, the lowpoly version and rendered on Eevee. What do you guys think? Anywhere that lacks of texture detailing?

I want to make her as best as possible before posting it into artstation. Idk, maybe do a quick posing animation. How can i make her character reveal showcase better?

I've tried making custom brushes in gimp but they've not been close.

Well I believe you and truly do want to start drawing. How did you learn to draw? I have trouble finding it as enjoyable as modelling, and practicing feels more like a chore.
>>
>>697771

Head over to /ic/, and look at their /beg/ sticky. If you truly truly want to get started on the mastery track, it all starts with fundamentals. Drawing with arm not hands, perspective, values, tone, gesture, then figure. Once you're a decent draftsman, you can move onto painting (digital or traditional doesn't matter). In any case, /ic/ has a lot of really good resources.

If you hate practice, you're not gonna make it. Drawing is hard. Drawing well is impossible without proper practice, not aimless doodling to reinforce bad habits.

I know you're probably going to hate this and drop out, but try drawabox. Google it. Good luck

2.79 Faster way to to properly mirror a weight painted mesh utilizing many bones?

Hey everyone, been trying to search this for a few evenings now, but unable to find the answer. What are the steps to mirror a weight painted mesh so the resulting mirrored-mesh is weight painted to the opposite side?

What I thought would work:
1) Armature: Symmetrize skeleton parts that need to be mirrored (bones are prenamed "[bone].L")
2) Mesh: Add mirror modifier. Add Armature modifier.
3) Mesh: Weight Paint
4) Mesh: Apply Mirror modifier

The result is a mirrored mesh that is still weight painted to the original side.
For that mirrored side, I understand that one could Mirror the vertex groups and rename them from "[Bone].L" and "[Bone].R", resulting in a working weight paint. However, is there a faster way to do this? For something like a Full-arm item that utilizes 14 finger bones, any other options?

Seems like you want to, but you're waiting for someone to give you a push so you have a "reason" to learn it.

Just do what you want man. If it seems interesting enough to give a try, then do it. There's not any one thing about Blender that would totally change your way of doing anything in any significant way. Especially considering the programs you already know.

If you're really looking for some kind of kick, Eevee is fun to play around with. Takes a lot of the trial and error out of rendering and animating. That's not to say that Eevee makes animating easier, but it's definitely useful to see something close to your final product in real time so you don't waste hours re-rendering something because a light was off or something.

Well he wanted to show off boolean shit and to prevent it to look jaggy he just put a massive subdivision on the whole thing to make everything look shiny and crisp to wow his viewers.
Usually boolean modeling results in messy shit mesh like sculpting so you need to retopo it anyways afterwards (or don't be lazy and do a clean mesh from the start without boolean shit).

Good advice, thanks. Always wondered what's the point of it if it sometimes doubles the vertices.

No problem.
Boolean techniques can be helpful when you want to quickly sketch out things in the concept phase. Can even work well enough for 3D prints and in those stages polycount is not that important (as long as your machine can handle it without too much pain). But as I said, if you want to use it for anything after that, especially anything animated, you need to retopo it just like sculpts.

It was entirely poly-modeled. I made modeled a lower poly version of her scalp, and then modeled every single bang of hers by basically making a line of vertices, extending them on both sides to make a strip, and then morphing them into shapes that closely resembled the reference.
If I wanted it to have a sharper edge, I would add a second edge loop at the center, like I did for the bang in this image.

true but you need to manage edge loops to hold edges for this, its why when box modelling you have subsurface on while modelling, to have edges held with your edge loops.
alongside quads, you want the edge loops to be selectable

it lets you use houdini assets as blender modifiers is the explanation from him. Its nowhere near ready to be used in a professional pipeline, but if it keeps progressing we'll be able to use houdini alongside blender very nicely.

I am trying to make an object that sort of cuts into another. I want the above object to make the below one transparent only where the above object was.
I can get this to work with the above set up, the black object is transparent and it cuts a perfect hole into the sphere.
But this only works because there is only 1 transparent thing, if you were to have both of these behind another transparent object it doesn't work. I'd have to use some math nodes to get it to work, which is fine but I'd have to manually input the current highest amount of transparent rays every time and I want it to be automatic.
Or is there a completely different way of doing this and I'm just dumb?

Why is Blenders bone rotation system so convoluted? Why isn't it simple like Maya?
>>
>>700061
it uses quaternion by default, which is retarded if you want to read/modify rotation directly
you can switch it to euler in the transform properties

mirror modifier or Mesh>Symmetrize in edit mode.

Maybe it's a permission problem if you started saving in a different folder or security settings got changed. Try running blender as an administrator.

Do any of you use the radeon prorender instead of cycles? Is it worth switching to?

Is "beauty pass" a sexist term?

Serious question. I have a slide that says beauty pass on it, and since beauty can mean "beautiful woman", I'm worried about getting #metoo'd.

I wouldn't worry about it. I think they have enough other things to be offended by to not care about that word for now at least.

>>700461
that's all I use that for basically, I could use subdivision surface and a couple of loopcuts too but that's faster.
>>700462
Yes
>>
>>700467
Cool! So is that branch actually usable or does it crash all the time?
>>
>>700459
sure, you could quickly use booleans for that
>>
>>700469
I use that branch only, it's ok but sometimes crash, you have the File > Recover Auto Save, I think the program just need a first save to start that.

I'm doing my first fully rigged model for a friend and am fuckin lost. So I rigged the body which is alright, and I have added teeth and hair and eyes etc. The jaw as seen is currently posed to be open. How do I add the lower teeth object to the jaw bone without it instantly moving my teeth from their location and like below the jaw? I like how they look right now on the jaw.
