Hey Blendheads, just to give you an insight that you can use Blender in a non-animation setting...

I use it for packaging design/layout for sample parts that we ship (at a 3D printing EOM company).

I use it to give me a 2D representation of the foam cutting pattern as well, exporting it as an svg for laser cutting machines.

The idea behind this is really great, the node-only approach seems practical both for procedureal modelling as well as particle systems.
Too bad that this isn't a part of regular Blender development yet; an official release would bring more streamlined/ standardized nodes along with better performance and bugfixes with it.

How do you guys make money with 3D at home? Not looking for anything crazy, but some income on the side would be nice.

What's popular? I don't even know what to look at. Freelance websites are filled with 5$ pajeets and people asking for complex models/anatomical sculpts for like 50$. The only thing I can think of is making kitbash kits or something. I can't imagine putting up models on turbosquid is gonna bring in any money.

Yeah I find their work to be pretty fucking shallow and meaningless. Just take stolen assets, and dress it up and watch the followers roll in. C4D users on Instagram are essentially just Dazlets.
All I'm saying is that their art is relatively popular for some reason, and it's an example of something people would commission, steal, or license for their use.
Not that I particularly like their work.

I would really love it if someone put out bundles of parts for kitbashing into tabletop gaming miniatures.

So I added the vertices circled in red in order to fit the inscribed circle with quads, which is good. But the issue is that this effects the subdivision surface, making this particular section slightly flatter. How is this avoided?

12 replies omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No.745555

If you're gonna subdiv it don't go so high as 12 edges in your circle. Go for 6. Same goes for other geometry. Makes no sense why it's so polygon heavy. Just go lower, you have a lot of edges that are redundant.

>> No.745556

>That sort of "just eyeball it, whatever it's good enough" artist mentality drives me up the wall.

This is an ironic statement considering you fucked up your subdiv by having irregular polygon sizes. The edge where the hole is located is actually straighter and has a different arc than the rest of the model.

>> No.745600

your arrangement of vertices on a flat surface really doesn't matter.

Where topology matters is animation. If you want a knee to bend correctly or face to deform correctly then you need to watch your topology.

When the video card renders your model it converts it to triangles from quads anyway.

>When the video card renders your model it converts it to triangles from quads anyway.

No it doesn't, you retard. Converting to triangles is about tangent normals, not topology. If it looks bad with quads it will look bad with tris.

For those with Unity knowhow, why can’t my sprites cast and receive shadows?
I’ve looked all over for a way to get it to work but found very little and the little I’ve found has not helped.

Any info would be appreciated. I’m stumped.

Also what other boards might know more about this?

In the pic: Right is a normal sprite, not casting shadows and animated,
Left is a plane with a transparent cutout material with the same sprite applyed, casting shadows but seems to be missing the texture even though the outline shows otherwise.

>> No.744656

lookup shaderlabs docs
give tag and entry for shadow so its active in shadow pass
or just copy and tweak the internal shader until it work if ur too dum to rtfm

Every animation studio seems to go creatively bankrupt after their third or fourth film without exception.
I guess that because of the extreme workload and deadlines, the artists making the films become burnt out.
Can anyone in the industry give some background as to why this keeps happening?

>> No.744896

same. I like the first and found it funny that they never addressed the few times Mr Incredible killed some people (that one seen when he threw a rock at a guards head when he was sneaking in).

1 had soul, while 2 never had a cool twist like the 1st one.
The story should've explored more family stuff with how serious super heroing really is but treated like an annoying destraction / a job, which the kids get lazy with and causes people to die. That would've been a cool theme to explore

>> No.744902

Basically they're young adults, Dash stops giving a crap about saving people and people dying because he'd rather do other things (like Nurses) while the Sister who has a lot of empathy would pick up the slack.
The parents would be disgusted with Dash's attitude towards saving people's lives, and Violet is concerned for her brother, which brings up a good theme of "Why is this MY problem?" that's never been addressed.

Dash would be a mini-villain, who realises he as a Super is superior to non-supers, so he uses his superiority to get what he wants. Since he's isolated he lets the idea grow that he really is superior to the inferior races (ie non-supers) and believes in that in their domination there'd be peace (an idea for the sequel).

The family fights the bad guys and hoping on Dash to help but he never shows up. He feels abandoned, shunned and angry, all he needs is someone who understands.
Dash never gets the help he needed throughout the movie and kills Mole-Man in the final battle.

The family is divided on Dash. Dash at the end hugs his family goodbye and runs away, leaving him as a possible villain in the 3rd movie

>> No.744914

You're missing the point where they kind of never really wanted their kids to be superheroes in the first place and wanted them to find their own thing. Partly because of the whole thing where they had to keep things secret, but also because of the dangers involved with being a superhero. No parent wants their kid actively seeking out dangerous situations or getting hurt.
One of the big points in the first movie was that they didn't want their kids put in the same dangers that they were and that it was a different world and more dangerous than the "propaganda" made it out to be. Which was the important bit about them actually using their powers to their fullest extent when faced with actual danger of people trying to kill them.
It all ends with everyone coming to grips with themselves, the times they live in, and learning to celebrate their differences with each other, and the regular people at large.

It's basically a movie about being yourself. Except in this case it's with superpowers.
The sequel didn't have any overarching lesson/narrative to tie it together. It was just bad fan-service and "yaaaaassss queen" moments.

>> No.744916

I'm not really into your idea for a sequel though. Seems like it'd be too edgy for something that'd ultimately be rated G or PG.
I think a good place to go with it, would be one of the kids decides to be a superhero, and both parents take it upon themselves to show them the ropes, and teach them. While also showing more of the behind-the-scenes stuff about being a hero. More of the super-suit stuff where they show the logistics and stuff besides the flashy saving people stuff. Like where they get their cars/gadgets, is there some kind of union or something with other superheroes, what happens when 2 heroes arrive at the same crisis, where do heroes go to unwind? But also show change with a new generation of heroes entering the fray since the ban on supers being lifted and other heroes' kids deciding to enter the hero game.
With a villain in the group of kids that were friends with them. So they have to take down someone they're close to and deal with that. With the kid's parent being an old villain as well for the parallel narrative.

At this point though it doesn't really matter. We got what we got. No use really speculating on what could have been.

games use weird cg because they generally need to render in real time, while cg in movies and videos do not have any such limits and can render for as long as it takes to get a desired fidelity

I think he means why do the pre-rendered FMVs in older early-mid 2000s games tend to look like some kids first blender animation. I don't think he's talking about the in-engine cut scenes where the characters prattle on about some shit.

I think the FMVs look like shit because of lack of experience/skill and the studio was too cheap to buy the software to make actually good FMVs. I mean ffs look up how they made the FMVs for Silent Hill on PS1. It was basically one guy who convinced management to use pre-rendered videos instead of engine cutscenes and for a while he was the only one making the FMVs. And he wasn't really all that experienced either.

Yeah I have no clue about Lightwave. There were some image maps in the folder but I just wanted the model to use as reference cause I wanted to recreate the ship and eventually 3d print it. Image references are woefully inadequate yet somehow the original modeller did a bang up job. I'm guessing the model needs a lot of work to make it 3d printable?
