what will be faster to learn?

basic programming oriented to web dev


3D modelling (no sculpting)


2 replies omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No.726040

Learn Webdev, you would actually get paid.
Nobody would pay for, as you phrased it, doing "3D modelling (no sculpting)".
3D modelling withouth sculpting is like baby steps and even if you get paid for it it would not pay your coffee.
There's no such thing as "3D modelling (no sculpting)".
Because even teens can do that and nobody would pay you for it. They would just have their interns do it.

Do you even know the basics of programming? Like what's and integer and pointer is?
If not follow this guide.
Learn Javascript and Python. If that turns out to be easy for you learn Java and C++. If it's too hard, just google "Full Stack Development Tools/Toolset". And train whatever's in there.

Start a server on your pc, write some backend and frontend code, learn how things work on internet(HTML, HTTP, POST, CSS, JS etc.). Then branch out from this very very basic starting point.

Webdev is very easy to learn if you have a basic understanding of programming such as C C++ Java C# etc.
If not, then you might struggle, but it's way better than "3D modelling (no sculpting)", which is not a real thing.

Tell me again why sculpting is superior for anime girls if all the best anime girls ever made were made using traditional vertex modelling?

>but muh zbrush sculpts
They all look like 3D sculpts and not like 2D anime girls.

2 replies omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No.726013

The principle advantage of sculpting is that it is relatively fast and you can concentrate on concepting and do not have to think to much about technical aspects like topology.
Separating form from topology is easier on the brain. Especially if you use tools like WRAP3 in conjunction.

>They all look like 3D sculpts and not like 2D anime girls.
Probably because the people used standard shaders instead of cell shading and outlines.

A lot of things are involved to get it right. The way you create the models is just a fraction.

Quake style low poly retro models. Modelling and animating. In blender???

Hello /3/ I'm an indie dev, aspiring to make a dusk inspired retro flavoured fps that pays homage to the gems I grew up playing (quake and doom). I know that's nothing new and remarkably original (wrath, dusk, prodeus, etc). But one step more above being a contrarian edgelord who shoots down other peoples goals, is not giving a fuck about contrarian negative edgelords who shoot down other peoples goals. I'm doing it despite the fact that there's a whole trend of people doing this.

Now I'm comfortable modelling in blender, and I can paint textures very comfortable. But how do I learn to animate a model like this?

Is there a go-to tutorial, or site that will teach me to go from concept/turnaround to model to animated ingame character ?

Thanks for your efforts or interest.

Wow that looks great, when I look into the distance it actually makes me dizzy and registers headache. Nice going with shitty pixel graphics.

>> No.726066

just keep in mind how topology affects animation, optimize UVs, hand paint textures and keep within budget
it's really that simple, though getting assets into the engines may not be

study the topology of the models you want to emulate. check out polycount's low poly thread
there's plenty of old odds and ends about old techniques and methods for getting good looking models at a low triangle count
Paul Steed's "Thinking Outside of the Box" series as well as PDFs of his books are archived online and one of his colleagues detailed some of his tricks

quake models didnt use bones, they had to individually model each frame. if you look at texture maps for say, the ogre its fucking simple front, back and chainsaw.

>dusk inspired retro flavoured
now here's a question. why don't you just use dusk? it has an sdk. you can just make a total conversion. why spend all that time making something that only 20 people are actually
interested in?

there are enough games that 'pay homage' to 90's fps we should start calling fps's 'doom clones'

tl;dr try making something less generic.

if you want drop shadows, make separate layer and use direction blur or something similar.

Does anyone give a shit about piracy anymore?

I've been constantly reporting one particular channel to YouTube, pretty much weekly but also reporting every video that's uploaded for containing illegal content. They're effectively showing people how to pirate switch games and play them on PC and as the emulator improves it will only become more popular.

This is the channel


As you can see they have several videos not only advertising this fucking emulator, but also guides on how to set it up. Does Google not give a shit about this?

Because you can't emulate the xbox x or ps4
almost as if all the emulators and pirates are trying to ruin Nintendo. Really makes you think huh

>> No.725794

Emulation is typically very costly as you run a virtual simulation of the hardware on your machine.

Emulating a powerful consoles like the PS4 on a current day home computer would not be very useful since we don't have enough powerful hardware to successfully do so.

Thing to realize tho is that if you own a computer powerful enough to virtulize a Nintendo Switch you're probably a gamer enthusiast.
If you are a member of the Glorious PC Gaming Master Race you are likly gonna be playing Master Race titles on your powerful PC.
Not console peasent titles, and if you're somehow still interested in those you prob already own the real thing anyways.

The way such organizations count to arrive at those numbers is fraudulent in the extreme.
Often times they just look at every download and convert that number into lost revenue.
Problem is that currency doesn't actually exist.

If a Mexican kid with an annual income of less than $1000 pirate movies, games and software worth $10000 that is not any lost revenue.

>> No.725796

This; I would swiftly navigate to alternative content, if I found out one day that the content I like doesn't live up to my piracy standards.
At least, this way you get exposure, promotion, etcetera.
I've boycotted many times before, and I'll do it again. And, even if I don't represent the majority, I'm certain pirates don't either.
I don't pirate as much as I used to, because in my adult life I can't afford to turn my computer into a potential botnet; but I'll gladly switch from Photoshop to Krita for my personal use, and Adobe can fuck right off.

RMS isn't going to do anything about GRSecurity because Bradly Kuhn, a non-lawyer who stabbed RMS in the back recently

RMS says "No evidence right?" and "I'm not part of the FSF anymore" and "wasn't it agreed that nothing could be done?"
There is in-writing evidence:
Has he forgotten about this:
Has he ever heard of "Discovery"?

Setting up a small green screen on a staircase, isolating the subject. Film whatever you intent to film. Then do 3d tracking on the footage to get the camera movement. Export into 3D software of your choice. Rebuild your staircase/background. Texture it with the appropriate textures from MC. Match the lighting to look like it does in the game. Render to sequence. Don't forget to grab the smoke sprites from game and do an element/pass for the particles. The rest is a job for whatever composition tool you use. Easy peasy, but I don't see the point.

I doubt they used blender. After affects, C4D and other special effects programs can manage their own 3D models.
