The same way the current Zbrush version is still not up for functional use with current patches, I wonder what's the latest Marvelous Designer crack I can use that is not bugged.
Also, should I download it from CGPeers?

is there any difference between bender and zbrush sculpting if you're a noob?

>> No.807980

Yeah, because Zbrush still has more useful tools and many specialized brushes that will make sculpting easier and you'll end up with better looking results.

>> No.807992

I would say that 80-90% of sculpting fundamentals are art fundamentals.

Zbrush will give you more advanced tools and better performance, but wont magically make you a better sculptor.

I would say that if you're a noob, blender is fine, but eventually you may find when you're better you need that extra polish zbrush have.

But for a noob, the tool is actually not that relevant.

>> No.807996

This is the main thing, but it's worth considering that if you're sculpting smooth anime waifus, you won't need any of this sit.

There's a reason sculpts showing off Zbrush's capabilities are always scaly demons with detailed surfaces.

>> No.807998

Yes, you need a PhD to navigate Zbrush.

Do movie studios usually throw away their assets once their done? Or do they archive them in case they can be reused or somehow historically displayed?

I don’t know if anyone cares, but to think that somewhere out there, in some employees old hard drive or disc, is a model of Monsters Inc’s factory, or the model of the ant hill from bug’s life is a little strange and harrowing, that those digital worlds are still there and can be revisited

They reuse their assets. If you watch carefully, you can notice stuff from older movies being included in new ones. The most famous one is the ball, but there's more. It seems plausible that they delete assets they know they'll never use, but then on the other hand storage is really cheap, so they might aswell keep it stored.

I always thought they just copy and paste the texture. These assets all look too easy to model and make with modern graphics rather than translate it and update it

>> No.808062

well that's more of a reference than efficiently reusing materials or something.

Then why aren't you doing that?

>> No.807938

>> No.807942

Honestly, mainly because I'm a bitch. I have all the neet time right now to do it, but I don't want to take that risk. I've been through multiple small game projects with other people and even went through a crowdfunding, I also worried about posting on social media regularly, get feedback from game testers etc. to know how much of a pain in the ass the complete process is. It's really hard out there and only rare ones succeed. Maybe I would do it on the side if I had a steady income source, but those child's dreams of developing games for a living are far gone.

Another thing is that when I seriously started learning gamedev and creating prototypes, I realized I only create pretentious Chris Crawford / Jason Rohrer tier games and try to experiment with mechanics that push the medium. Nobody cares about that either since it isn't exactly fun, but I enjoy doing that kind of stuff. If I wanted to make money with it, I would need to do market research, come up with engaging mechanics and fit the game to the consumers, and at that point it wouldn't be worth doing it for me anymore.

Now I'm at least trying to tell small stories through 3D environments I'm creating, but it is still challenging especially when I can't make any shortcuts I would have done otherwise, because it is going into my portfolio as well. And there's no money in short films at all. Maybe it could help me with a bit of an exposure if I pull it off and that's it.

I really need help with exporting an Alembic (I think), from Marvellous Designer into Blender. I've made a top, looks great, I'm happy, simple. The animation looks good, 24 fps across the board. Ok. Then I bring this Alembic (Ogawa) into Blender and match it up the same size as my FBX character. (The reason I'm using FBX is because I want the character to have skin and I can't seem to add textures to the Alembic.) So anyway, I do this and I play the animation, in Blender and the bloody Alembic Top I've made is sped up ever so slightly compared to the FBX character, and I tried moving the timescale along, cos I thought, hey it might be out a step a bit, but it's definitely sped up for some reason. I've tried everything, can't figure it out. So yeah...Please help, I'm so close to being done. So so close. I'm going to sleep now, but will save the link and look tmr, brain is fried.

Could it be that MD is actually exporting at 30 fps, or other common frame rate? I haven't personally used MD with Blender, but there are a few mentions of that kind of issue on MD forums.

Also, yes, Alembic doesn't carry material information. It's intended to be used on top, so to speak, of objects that do carry that sort of info.

File: 150 KB, 1567x1184, Constrain to plane XY.png [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

Quæstion: How do you constrain a Transform (such as Grab/Move) to plane XY?

Effect of key combo G-Z-Z (intended to mean "not Z") is no different from G-Z (constrains to Z-axis). Key combo G-Z-0 just freezes the vertex so you can't move it anywhither. The constraint I'm seeking is available after the fact from the GUI pane for last operation settings.

Today I discovered Blender and the "Sculpt" tool.
I am a complete novice with no art talent at all.
I give it a shot, and Low and behold, artfaggotry is VERY easy and years of you cunts pretending that moving some verts with a mouse is difficult- well let's just say that's OUT THE WINDOW.
As you can see with pic related, if a complete novice can create something passable IN HALF AN HOUR it is safe to say he can create game ready assets with not much more practice

>> No.807855

It depends on what you're doing and how high your standards are. Both areas can be challenging.

But actually, I think 3D is ultimately easier if you're doing a project of your own. Why? Because with 3D, if I really end up stuck with some complex model, I can always simplify it, it doesn't matter, those are just visuals. But if I get stuck with a core gameplay mechanic and can't make it work, then the whole project is fucked.
