Anaglyphs are the #1 hidden gem in 3d right now. Easy to create, only need $1 glasses to view, and if you use the DuBois algorithm you get decent color reproduction that doesnt kill your eyes. Its actually better than VR since it only costs $1 for glasses and the impact is that high

This is why I still 3d. If you dont do anaglyphs in current year you're a tool, working on obsolete tech.

Anyone have any to share?

It's practically the same as putting those shitty cardboard glasses on your face.
And if it really bothers you, just do it without the set. All you have to do is cross your eyes a bit to view sbs, the set just makes it easier. Can't do that with anaglyph.

I'm just saying it can be done, and I agree that it is. It doesn't require a phone strapped to your face, which was my point.

>no. i dont own any vr set. I'm poor.
I was/am too. Before I got a Vive, I had a shitty as fuck setup with a slightly better phone headset (plastic instead of cardboard). I used a gyro mouse as head tracking, and synced the video up to my phone from the PC. It was so shitty and hacked together but it got me hooked enough to save up for the Vive. It took a good while, but it's worth it. It's something else when you can sculpt something, then take it into vr and walk around it and view it up close. VR sculpting is pretty neat too. I haven't really gotten into it much, but there's some people that use it in their pipeline for some crazy fast results that you retopo for use. Plus Oculus Go is coming out pretty soon, and that's only around $200 if I remember correctly. It's completely self contained so you don't need a phone or PC setup.

It's pretty sad that engines like Unreal and Unity have an awfuly bad reputation just because of shit game developers. Both are very capable engines and they're also totally free to use unless you're making nice money out of them. However, Raspberry Pi has been overrated since it was first released. Sure, it has some fairly decent specs but you'll probably never use 50% of it's power since for anything more demanding than that, you can simply use a phone, which is also avaliable to pretty much everyone (and for anything less demanding, you can use something like an arduino).

I don't really need a nurb software.
We are at the point where you can prototype those shapes in even sculpting software, and you are gonna need to retopo anyway.
I think nurbs modelers are for those times when you need more precision, and sure it is cheaper than Rhino.

>> No.661916

It has a pretty good remesher for exporting to n-gon based geometry. It's not my kinda workflow, but for those who like concepting in, say, Fusion 360, and then retopoing, using the remesher in MoI will probably make their lives easier.

If I could have the remesher alone for 100 bucks I would buy it in a heartbeat. But the whole program... not for me.

Maya pros. Help me. What is the difference from pressing SHIFT + W (Set keys for translate) VS just pressing S? I do not understand at all.

4 replies omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No.661708

Well since this thread already exists I'll answer.

Hitting S adds a keyframe to every keyable channel. Shift+W adds keyframes to translate channels only. (Shift+E/R to key rotate/scale respectively)

>> No.661709

S default behaviour keys all keyable channels, while shift+W\E\R keys only their respective TRS channels... you could see this yourself if you just used it by the way, since it's just a shortcut for key-set key, while shift+WER being shortcuts for key-set key on translate\rotate\scale respectively .

S can be modified to key selectively whatever your manipulator is right now and a couple of other options but I strongly recommend that you leave it on defaults since it is a good practice for blocking poses if you select all controls and hit S on them, that way you will be absolutely adamant that this key on timeslider that nothing is unkeyed you when you start refining your poses, and unused channels can be just easily cleaned up afterwards.
I personally don't use shift+whatever, because autokey is much better if you use it consciously, hopefully this answers your question, next time use question thread.

>Hitting S adds a keyframe to every keyable channel

What are channels? Are these like equivalent to Layers in flash/photoshop?

What does TRS channels mean?


What is a manipulator?

>it is a good practice for blocking poses if you select all controls and hit S on them, that way you will be absolutely adamant that this key on timeslider that nothing is unkeyed you when you start refining your poses

What is Blocking poses? What is Controls?



>> No.661725

Channels are everything that is in the Channel Box. Translate X, Translate Y, Translate Z are three channels you'd find on a typical object.

TRS is translate rotate scale. Yes the order is weird, it's just meant so that qwer starts with the most used tool (select) and ends with the least used one (scale). When you're more experienced you can change your hotkeys up.

Autokey is a mode where Maya automatically sets new keyframes when you manipulate something that has already been keyframed.

You should find a better tutorial that explains this stuff because it's super basic and not worth people's time explaining when any decent beginner animation tutorial should cover it.

>> No.661761

Just find something you want to model on your free time and when you come across a problem google foo and use the questions thread. 3d really isn't like other arts where you have to have a grasp on theory before you can make something good you just need a motivation and time.
As you go along supplement yourself with challenges, there are loads of small ones on youtube or you can find something near you and try to make it in 3d. Learn modifiers and hotkeys.
And do small hour or so tasks like pic related to keep yourself going.
Keep following the tutorial but also do your own thing. You need to learn how to solve your issues and following a tutorial won't help with that because you likely won't encounter them.

If you had to model a face from a single, distorted photo, how would you go about doing it?

>> No.661518

I'd probably try to draw topology on top of the photo, then do my best to translate it to 3d.
Or you could do some weird shit like trying to paint height data from the photo then using it as a displacement map.
OR, you could always sculpt it if you've got the skill and experience.

>> No.661521

Start with general masses. Certain parts of the head line up, like eyes, nostrils and ears. Also, some parts of the face are relative to each other. For example, if you know the position of the eyes and chin, you can take a decent guess at the position of the ears and the top of the head etc. even if you can't see them clearly.
Once you have your basic forms mapped out, you can start to add details and topology, working your way up until you have a passing resemblance.

It's fine to have hobbies unrelated to your music but being realistic it's unlikely you can solo make a game with no experience, specialist is the way to go. In a small indie team you may be able to practice and learn 3d from someone who has been doing it for years.

>> No.661512

It'll all eventually fall into place. You'll find that while you have many interests (because they're definitely not passions), one of them will end up taking most of your time and feel the most rewarding. No one said you can't have multiple hobbies, when you get burnt out on one, you've got something to fall back on to keep you busy until you want to do more of the other. Sounds more like music is your passion if you put most of your effort into growing that aspect. The others are just passing interests and hobbies. To be fair though, you probably won't make it with music (because few ever do), Illustration is a very competitive field, and unless you've got some formal training or innate talent or drive to compete with people that have been taking it seriously for years you probably won't make a dent in anything (unless you blindly copy trends and don't try to innovate). 3d and game dev is a similar problem, since you've don't got the experience to pursue it in any meaningful capacity. Leave illustration and 3d as a hobby, try to build up your music, but focus on whatever you majored in. If you feel like you've grown enough with the other stuff, try to branch out with it, but don't keep it as your main focus unless somehow you hit it off and get really popular with it.

By the way, that was only 3 passions.
