What's the best application for character animation?

I want to get in on this 3D porn bubble before it pops. I usually model and texture in C4D, but I have no experience with animation and my understanding is that C4D is far from the best for that.

Hey /3/. Had this issue before but never figured out a solution

Sometimes when I make objects I can't get clean, unwarped uv's without seams in places that make the texture not match up to itself.

This is the lower part of a bun I'm making for a female character and the lines represent the flow of her hair.

In method 1 I've cut the seam in the top part of the bun leaving the rest of the object with a seamless texture and I can live with that. However, the uv's don't have room to relax properly making the texture wavy and inaccurate.

In method 2 everything is flattened and relaxed but I have seams that are undesirable and break up the flow of the texture. [The texture I put on it is a quick example I did that could be more accurate but would still show seams.

Is there a common method to fix something like this that I just never learned about?

>> No.586952

For one, why are you mapping it to a cube. Change the topology to match what you are trying to do. Second, you texture after you map the uvs. Maybe find a method to remap your old textures to the new uvs, but your workflow was messed up from the start so I don't know how much help you can expect.

>> No.586966

one seam...along one side that keeps the whole thing in one solid piece

>> No.586967


I didn't map it as a cube. I stitched everything together and it ended up looking like a cube unwrap because that's the best I could figure.
The textures aren't important at this point. The black lines are guidelines for the hair. What I'm asking is how would I typically unwrap this to get optimal results.

Can't do it with just one seam on one side of the object or it'll distort like option 2 shown above

>> No.586969

Just cut down the middle connecting top and bottom
Maybe try cylindrical unwrap

Besides, it's just a bun, who cares?

So I'll be getting a bonus at the end of the year, ranging from 3000 to 3500 USD and I want to drop 2500 USD tops on a new PC.
I would mainly use it for Maya and Houdini, some animations and phys sim. but nothing crazy.

Do any of you have any PC builds you could recommend to fit into under 2500USD pricetag? I am so far removed from building at this point that I literally would just slap SLI 1080s into it, buy some i7 CPU and call it a fucking day, but I feel like that might be overdoing it and I don't really want to waste money unless necessary.

Would appreciate any pointers as to where to look for the relevant PC builds too (because google throws up "gaming pc" builds at me)

>> No.587067

General modeling, physics and real-time engines benefit from fast CPU cores. Simulations and CPU rendering benefit from more cores. Viewport performance and GPU rendering benefits from a fast GPU.

The best CPU option I think would be an 8700K (if you can find one), just because Ryzen lacks that extra bit of leverage when doing lightly-threaded tasks. It's pretty much hard-locked to 4Ghz unless you luck out, while the i7 can go to 4.5Ghz or more no problem, as long as you have a beefy cooler on it like a D15 (air) or a Celsius S36 (water).

For GPU there's good reason to consider anything GP102 because Nvidia enabled Quadro-tier optimizations in the latest drivers for them, which means 1080 Ti, Titan X(gen2) or Titan Xp will get much better performance in a variety of situations. That said, you probably won't make full use of it if all you're going to do use Maya and Houdini for animations, so maybe wait for the 1070 Ti.

>> No.586963

I started with Wings 3D too, moved to Blender. I don't remember how to do the thing you want, you probably need to be in Vertex select mode

If you decide to move to Blender (it's way more fleshed out, has lots more built in, way more documentation, etc etc than Wings3D), there's no "move along target edge" instead you use Magnet (hold Ctrl to toggle) set to Face or Vertex.

I think it's just slow, probably just one person opening and inspecting every Blender project.

And I think the latter is from lowering their standards since it was pretty barren when it first came out, seen people here complain about it not approving their models.

I bet if you modelled a beer bottle you could boolean it into several different pieces of trash. Various glass shards, different identifiable beer bottle pieces like the neck and base.

I would have thought this would be a common enough problem to solve that there would be an article online about how to quickly make some trash or clutter for videogames but either it isn't or I'm just awful at using the right search terms.

For a bag I think that since it's just trash and anyone looking closely at trash in models isn't going to expect much, just make a blob in the general shape with some ridges for where it bunches up and valleys where it collapses and then don't even fuckin worry about topology for static trash objects, decimate and triangulate who cares.

>> No.586714

Grime and rust will accumulate in corners and inside edges similar to ambient occlusion. Also moisture makes it grimier and rustier.

If you put a water stain or leak on the ceiling, make a puddle or stain underneath it on the floor.

Sweep the dirt and dust around where there's big open holes like an open window or open door like wind moved around the dirt.

Different UV map for stamping stains and grunge from a big atlas texture. There's a better word that describes this but I can't think of it at the moment lol. Decals? That might be it.

I'm sure you could find some photos of houses in need of repair rather than abandoned so you can see how things look after not being taken care of over a couple years and not straight up abandoned so you can see what goes first.

There's an old country-lookin church down the road that was abandoned before I was born, trying to remember how it changed over 20 or so years I can remember. The door hinges failed and they kind of hang at an angle, then they fell off. Plants grew in through the back door. The linoleum came loose. Someone brought a mattress in. Trash kind of congealed with dirt, dust, and rain making a sort of mud resulting in a big chunk of garbage. The small stage fell in. A hole somehow formed in the roof, and then it slowly started to bend inward and collapse like a wet cardboard box in the rain.

>> No.586793

>Any tips for making a desecrated interior?
Yeah, it's a pro tip that applies to literally everything you'll ever do in 3D: look at the real thing.
Find pictures of abandoned buildings, urban blight, crack houses, squatter tenements, falling down homes, vandalized buildings, etc.

>What's the fast way
Buy other people's models, hire a team of people to make models, hire another studio.

>Fug I'm probably just lazy.
Yes, you are. Studios have a library of reusable assets, you either need to make your own or buy / steal your own.
You should also be working on your own personal library of lighting setups, materials, meshes (example: eyeballs, hair), textures (such as decals), and any other reusable assets.

>> No.586570

I mean maybe the original image was CGI, but the effect is just general databending to glitch the image.

I think this effect is the result of loading a bitmap as a raw audio stream in Audacity and doing ?something? and exporting again and back to bitmap.

Maybe I can unfuck it just enough to figure out what the original image might sort of look like but not feeling too confident.
