Aight, quick question for you guys who may be in the know.

I'm a 2D graphic designer, and while I originally just used flat photo "textures" for my work, a while back I started punching things up by using PBR materials for my work. Not how they're designed, mind you, but I use the included normal maps in Photoshop (and others sometimes) to get more realistic detail into my work that people really like. (I do this by making the normals black and white and cranking up the contrast).

What I'd like to do is try using Substances to make even more diverse and interesting textures. The problem is, I have no fucking clue how to do that. So that's my question; Is there a way to download a Substance file, edit it, and output the diffuse/normal/etc. maps to use in Photoshop? Is that a thing that can be done?

Pic sort of related.

>> No.778034

Yes you need to use substance designer or substance alchemist.
Or you have quixel.

My favorite part is how they call themselves "VFX Artists" while not working a day in the industry.

>Why is rigging a nightmare?
because it is effectively programming and most artists brains are wired for creativity not for logic and math.
>How do I gitgud?
By properly learning everything you need to know about it and using the right tool for the job.
Maya is the best for rigging and animation - everything else pretty much sucks for various reasons.
Lmao indeed.

>> No.778072

I'm not sure if it's true but many people say blender's rig tools are horrible compared to maya's. Honestly, rigify does the most things fine, but when you have a complex character you may need to fix the weight maps.

>> No.778078

it's really not that hard, mostly just time consuming.

>> No.778080

It is true. I have attempted to build rigs in many mayor DCC's. Max, Maya, Blender, C4d and Maya is the queen and nobody comes close.
There is a lot of stuff missing in all other DCCs when compared to Maya, but the killer argument is performance.
A Rig that runs with 20fps in C4d, with 15fps in Blender runs with 120+ fps in Maya. Even with SubD applied it still runs faster than the other ones.
I personally can't animate a character if it doesn't run in realtime - and even if you use a proxy mesh for animation chances are high that Maya runs faster with the real mesh than your other DCC with proxy mesh.
Maya is the gold standard every other DCC gets compared to, and the only software that has a chance in the near future to step up is Houdini.

This guy is moving 3d files inside firefox..wtf??


>> No.777858

Any format as long as you can interpret it. Three.js supports .obj and glTF files out of the box I believe.
glTF is the preferred format for the Web since it's open, modern and also supports a lot of features.
Browsers have been able to display 3D stuff for a while now thanks to WebGL

It was originally just a lyric video, but its kind of taken on its own thing and turned into more of a dedicated music video. Though the lyrics are part of it.

Rate my sword (beginner).

I did the first two levels of the donut tutorial and then wanted to create something own. I tried to make a sword and somehow figured it out. I used some basic stuff I learned from the tutorial and experimented around and it took me several hours, but I am so proud right now so I wanted to share it with you.

If your condom looks like this sword's blade, you are doing something wrong.
But yea, I get what you are trying to say. Anyway, I just want to explore Blender right now and if necessary I pick tutorials for what I need. I don't want to create another donut right now. I want to go more like the "learning by doing" way.
Just looked up how to set up a better smoothing and found out about Auto Smooth by the way. It really looks better now.

Of course. Skill comes with practice.

Yea, I thought about that too, but I didn't want it to be crooked or something like that, like any disproportional features or anything like that. I wanted it to look like freshly "out of the forge". But noise texture is a very good idea to make it look more realistic. Thanks.

Nah, I just think it's funny that they could only spring for $3k, with all the grants and shit they're getting from Epic and shit, you'd think they'd be able to do the $18k and be able to actually do something with the membership.

Fuck, a middle income family probably has $3k on hand for vacation. But I'm not running a company so who knows. Still seems like there's all of 3 dudes working at Blender though.

Ultimately though, the membership doesn't seem like it's all that important. Sure it's neat, but Blender won't contribute much in the grand scheme of things. I hope it does, but it probably won't

When you animate, do you ghost? It seems impossible for me to ghost the body on this rig since it has no keys on it and is driven by the curves. All I can do is ghost the curves. I can only ghost a select few because if i ghost too many it crashes 100% of the time. I dont know if its worth having it turned on or off in this case. Opinions?

You can ghost the model directly, but this is rarely done. You usuaully either use motion path to track your controllers, or a transparent sheet over you screen to manually mark your spacing
