i'm trying to modify a model i found so i can use it in VRchat, but there are some problems with its rig hierarchy that i can't figure out how to fix. for some reason changes in unity won't save, so i'm trying to figure out how to do it through blender itself and i can't figure out its interface.

i just want to make head jaw a child of head neck upper, and head neck lower a child of head neck upper.

can someone please tell me how to do this? why can't i just click and drag it?

apologies if i got some of the terminology wrong, i have no idea what i'm doing as you can see.

Hello fellas. I'm a skilled 2d artist, and I'm trying to get into making games. Naturally these will be comfy cute games with an emphasis on art, mood and storytelling. Nothing super bombastic.

So I need to get into very simple basic 3d, but have been struggling even with that. I've tried blender and didn't get too far. I will be posting samples of what it is that I'm trying to achieve itt.

My question is: What software would you recommend I go for? I'll keep grinding XP on blender if you can assure me it'll be worth it. Sprytile, a blender plugin, looks amazing and seems perfect for what I want to do, so I'm thinking blender is probably worth it, right?

Alright, in come the samples

My bad, but to clarify, my interest in 3d modeling is from a purely hobbyist perspective. I'd love to be able to make my own 3d models (anime style), and make animated porn loops. The demand for lewds out there is big. And perhaps eventually a small cuteish game in Unity.

So I guess modeling humanoids is my end goal, or is that not a good way to think about 3d modeling?

not him but from my experience humans and organic models are best done in Zbrush. which is a very complex program to get into, the ui is unlike anything you've seen before and will frustrate you quite a bit. but it's incredibly powerful once you figure it out.

>> No.596673

I've watched a lot of Zbrush videos and it does look intimidating, but also incredible what some people pull off in it. I guess the general idea is to make the model in Zbrush, then have another app make a low-poly mesh of it to texture/rig and animate for any other purpose?

I recently watched this, which looked really interesting.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhkmwB10-WM (p1)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpqQIkthFoM (p2)

I guess I'm really, really interested and should just start somewhere. Perhaps picking some references and trying to replicate them in Zbrush to get a bit of a grasp of it. The results might be shit, but its a start.

>> No.596682

If you're good at drawing you can probably pick up Zbrush pretty quickly. The UI looks intimidating but once you get to the sculpting part you'll find it's pretty comfy.

Just stop. There's nothing special about Zbrush.

I'm not talking about the look of it, maybe he failed at it. I'm talking about the approach, and was asking what is particularly wrong with that approach he used. You were talking about less polygons needed to model it. How would you do it?

>> No.596411

"PBR workflow" just means a workflow where you use metallic/roughness maps to determine the physical properties of your object in the texturing phase after you're done modeling them.

I didn't mention this together with modeling, I just happened to mention it after I said that there's too many polygons in it.

GPU rendering is the future. CPU+GPU is a half-measure and CPU rendering might as well be fossilized dinosaur shit.

They all give good results and are industry proven.
Renderman doesn't use CPU+GPU yet, that comes in the next release. Currently CPU only.

Don't talk out of your ass. GPU renderer are not better, only faster, but the image quality of CPU renderers might be a little better.

Well I can imagine that using multiple GPUs will probably be more powerfull than using dual CPUs
But if that the case GPUs price may skyrocket like ram prices did this year, something that may should keep in mind.
>Ignore Renderman and Vray for now, get Redshift and Arnold and learn these. Both are easier to learn.
Redshift looks very good, but should I really learn both?
I mean Redshift and Arnold.

Redshift. Gpu rendering is awesome

>> No.596178

Arnold is piss easy to understand. Give it a couple of days of learning and you've got it.
Yes, learning more than one tool to get the job done is recommended.
Don't put all your eggs into one basket and don't be afraid, learning a renderer is mostly fun and easy.
Like i said Redshift is faster, but in some cases Arnold just looks better.
Learn Redshift first, if you 've got it, switch to Arnold.

Check out this channel for learning Arnold:
