You mean rendering that entire scene without compositing or post process?

The rendering of the scene, maybe but it would be really tough.
The lighting and color, I dont know. I highly doubt it.

extruding separate or together. merge verts. cutting faces. add edgloops. combine meshes. duplicating. those are basic things you should know how to do.
create base meshes (suitable for sculpting and animation) for characters is where you should spend your time for now. the process requires very few tools and yields practical results. you need to know a little bit about weight painting, how rigging works, underlying anatomy (use references) that's as complicated as it gets really at your level, and those skill are applicable across any program you use.

you rarely need to use nodes for 3d animation. unless you're doing some procedural shit with modulation a traditional rig system can be handled with a simple script, which every package supports. nodes are more for things that are reusable like ocean waves, building destruction, big fx stuff that can just be hot swapped for another piece of geometry.

>> No.677615

real time as in rendering the scene but you be able to rotate the camera and shit, or just viewport rendering, but you cant see fish eye effects in viewports. it has to be rendered, and typically blender is the only thing not super laggy about it, but evee doesnt support it so you have go use cycles, that or use a different rendering engine like redshift.

>> No.677677

3ds max would be way to resource intensive for what I'm looking for

Yes as in you can rotate the camera. It doesn't have to be in the viewport.
I'll check out Blender.
If true real-time isn't supported, does the render engine at least update quickly as I rotate around the viewport?

yeah cycles is decent enough for that since you can change the computation to GPU, but like i said u can use other render engines with gpu acceleration, but blender should suffice.

I am either stupid or Maya is extremely cumbersome unless heavily customized or you learn to use the pie menu like some mythical god.
I have worked in 3ds max and blender for a few years and i tried to get into Maya, someone please give me some motivation or im just going to give up and stick to those two because going into menus for every operation will drive me nuts.

Good for retopo tho, that thing they have down from what i have experienced so far. Edge relaxing is cool tool

oh and,
Can you customize mouse navigation?
Can you get rid of the stupidly high thickness of the edges when you crease them?
Is the nurbs modeler worth it or should i go straight for rhino?

...which is what made me surprised in the first place. I don't deny it does. I fail to see where it connects with maya modelling tools.
as for tools themselves, they are surely adequate, but work with them long enough on complex geo and you will notice they are utterly FUCKED, in worst sense of the word.
before I swallowed the sculpt pill, I used maya extensively. I still value maya as major part of my operations, but modelling something there from scratch, if it's complex enough? no-no.
I can't even count how many times I had to do the obj reexport to save meshes maya breaks.
at some point, even with usual flushing history and cutting connections history flushing might still leave(another maya quirk, one might expect it would just cut them for good, nope sometimes it doesn't), any operation with faces will just flat out break the mesh no matter what.
when simple loop cut shoots half of the grid into space, when simple quad append just deletes half of your mesh it becomes highly unpleasant to work with.
which is frustrating because I like fluidity pie menus give me.

>> No.677772

i think the implication was that since maya is the primary DCC it remains the primary means of poly modelling in that space. i'm not going to speak to this as i have no experience in the field.

t b h i guess i've just been lucky and maya hasn't blown up my work in an irretrievable manner just yet (i've always run a rolling 50 file back up). i'm sure it'll happen to me at some point and i'll be too stubborn to move over to something else.

i do wish though that since, under the hood, much of maya is node-based, that they surfaced that stuff to users as the primary means (i'm well aware that it's just one sub-menu away, i just wish it was the default) of interaction with that system instead of the infuriating tab-style attribute editor.

>> No.677773

I don't work in the VFX industry but i know that a lot of studios us Maya for modelling. Yes you heard that right. They don't use or even have Max its either modelling in Maya or sculpting in Zbrush.
I have used Maya extensively in the last decade and i had maybe 5 cases of Maya fucking up a mesh like that. Always with files i had from somebody else, never with my own stuff. So, i am not too paranoid using Maya for modelling especially for the more complex stuff, for easier stuff i actually use Blender.
