usually it's recommended to build them to real world scale, eg the size cars, humans or houses are in the real world. Obviously this is not possible with extremely small (virus) or extremely large (like galaxies) objects.

Technically speaking, lights are better than HDRIs as they are easier for the engines to resolve. But artistically, that's the same as asking what lighting works best for a set, a portrait, a still-life, etc.; you have to realize an artistic goal, and it's your job as the artist to come up with the right means for it. If you have absolutely no clue as to where to start, try reading some books about lighting in photography.

>Technically speaking, lights are better than HDRIs as they are easier for the engines to resolve.
I depends on your render engine. Most pathtracing engines vastly prefer HDRIs to lights. Pathtracing works best - converges faster, is more accurate - with lot of big lights completely illuminating the scene, and many HDRIs are 360° lights. You can be an order of magnitude faster by using HDRIs instead of lightings in many occasions.

Lights, especially point-like lights, are a nightmare for pathtracing. Especially when the point-like light is in a recess or the scene isn't properly alight.

Hello, blendlets. I have a question about rigging in Blender.
I'd like to make a rig similar to this video.

However, I'm not sure what this technique is called.

It's real man.
Having everything modeled on real dimensions makes sure that everything is proportionally consistent.
It's not a hard-and-fast rule, but if you do use the proper scale and stuff, everything ties together nicely.
It also helps if you've got multiple assets in different files and shit. Say you modeled a car earlier using the proper scale, and you bring it into an environment that you've also modeled at a proper scale. The car will just work with the scene as soon as it's put in without any fucking around with scaling the car to look right.

To quote a true visionary...
"It just works."

You don't have to be super duper accurate and anal about every little measurement (often times just having a human model to compare against for scale works), but it's a good practice overall.

3dsmax dude here.
Reescaling actor characters is a fucking PAIN IN THE ASS: because how morph targets works, the reescaling make the morphs either extreme or inexistent, so you also have to reescale the morph target models and re-apply all morphs and re-make all controllers.
What is the best scale for a model/actor? Well, ask the FUCKING SOFTWARES YOU´RE WORKING WITH - Zbrush handles very large models completely wrong, even the largest brush scale appears tiny in those cases, and the normal scale (using Zbrush standard t-pose male model as a base) results in a biped with the size around 8 or 10 in 3dsmax (when standard scale is 100). Now, suppose you´ve exported from zbrush to 3dsmax and rigged the bastard. Now export it to Unity, to the standard starting scene (that one with the workbench): where the fuck is the model? Oh, it´s in the viewport alright... in a MICROSCOPIC SCALE.
Enlarge it 1000% to make it BARELY VISIBLE, and another 456% to fit in the scene.

Faster to render, quicker to set up to get a result instead of fiddling around with camera settings and shit, don't have to worry about scene scale and volumetric shit.
I'll use mist pass just use as a quick depth render to use in post for atmosphere. Just to get things looking right, then when I'm happy I'll use volumetrics and other effects.

All "normal" art communities highly encourage asslicking and criticizing is frowned upon, especially since that particular place became kinda the modern business card to show around for artists. In some communities even really good constructive critique gets replies like "oh so you have to be THAT guy..." or "there goes the good mood" by the group of fans flocking around the account.
So far I only get good replies when I explicitly fucking ask for them. /3/ used to be good in that regard since replies were usually harsh but often actually fair and to the point and they actually helped. Couple years back it was like a 1/3 shitposts, now it's like 3/4 and more with those brain amputated software faggotry thrown in so I don't know what even the use of /3/ is at this point despite all those ledditfags coming here, saying the place is to shitpost or for those who got banned over there.

this question is corelated with Unity

is it possible to create a random animation? not just a "recorded" animation that was randomized that is the same every time
but one that is different always
say I have a tree and I want the leaves or whatever to move slightly but the movement to be random
I know I can use c# scripts in Unity to randomize transformation/scaling but this is too basic
say the tree is more complex and I wanna add bones into it, now I can't do this in Unity
so it would have to be an animation that I do in Blender and then export to Unity
is this even possible?

And that's not counting when they do actually release promo codes themselves.
I wouldn't be surprised if more than 75% of the students of the average course got in for free.
Then consider all the discount codes that get passed around (most of which last much longer than the free codes), and all the promotions that Udemy does where courses get as much as 85% or even 95% discounts (if you want Udemy to promote your course you have to agree to this, because if you don't your video will be much harder to find).
So of even the students who paid (already a mall amount), almost all of them didn't pay the full price.
Then take Udemy's cut (which IIRC is 0% on discounted purchases) and taxes out of the equation, and you're left with much less than what it looks like from the outside.

t. guy who used to add these courses for fun a few years ago (my account has more than 10k courses, most of which non-free, and I never paid anything except time), so my info might be a bit outdated, but I don't think it's changed much.

2.8 was such a disappointment. The viewport improvements are great, but literally everything else is just worse, clunkier and slower.
Hell, why do we still have to flag animation data for it not to be automatically deleted (even if the file is saved)? Why hasn't outline offset been added as a basic part of the tools yet (need addon for it, which has been availabel online for free since 2.6)? Why do constrained objects still not update automatically if you abort a transform action? Why have so many hotkeys been removed, with no new alternative? Why does Ctrl+Z suddenly delete ALL animation adjustments you've done since last keyframe insert???
Beyond Eevee and general viewport features, I don't see any reason to use 2.8 over 2.7. Especially since most addons aren't even supported yet (and many never will be).

Has anyone tried to make photogrammetry models from YouTube videos? Pic related was the result I got from meshroom. This is lit using white (FFFFFF) lighting. Looks reasonably good, but would be awful close up. Even from a distance, the video compression is semi visible.

With the right HDRI image and sun lamp color, however, it looks reasonably good, even if the lighting isn't totally accurate. If you could make the jagged edges at the end straight (I tried cutting them with a boolean, which worked well), and mirror two on their X-axis, you could link up as many as you want, and use a spline (or bones) to bend and scale them to create visual variety. I didn't do that in pic related, but they still look pretty good when used in creative ways. Once the camera starts to move, though, you can see the seams, hence why I said what I did above about linking them together.

A lot of people have a lot of different needs. I personally don't care at all about sculpting, for example. Also you can use the 2.7x shortcuts preset if you want.

>A lot of people have a lot of different needs
Yes, and literally no needs were catered to for 2.8 apart from the need for a better live viewport.

>Also you can use the 2.7x shortcuts preset if you want.
That's guaranteed to just be a temporary thing, and it doesn't fix a lot of retarded changes. A lot fo hotkeys are simply gone (try Ctrl+T to add a constraint, for example), and some have been swapped for retarded circle menues (try Shift+S) which just makes everything slower.

2.80 first has to come back to the feature amount and stability of 2.79 and THEN you can expect more and more features to pour in. To be honest, it's actually impressive how much new shit 2.80 has already.

Also, calm your fucking tits. 2.81 will come out like 3 to 4 months later and there are many features that almost made it into 2.80 which means a lot of new stuff in October/November.

>That's pretty good. I think the ideal would be to use footage filmed during an overcast day.
Thanks! And I agree. Overcast, midday footage would take out (most of) the shadows, and give a result with lighting closer to FFFFFF white. I've found a few videos with such shots, so I'll give those a try next.

>What kind of video did you use? Drone footage?
Yes. I've found that the portion of the model with the most detail tends to be the place where the drone is closest to at the start of the footage. The unfortunate thing is that horizontal surfaces can have heavily distorted textures and geometry due to perspective, as the drone rarely just points the camera straight down towards the ground, which is why I chose to delete everything except the vertical surfaces. Using a vertex group and a shrink wrap modifier, however, it is possible to "patch" terrain onto the top of the cliff, although I've found it difficult to make the textures applied to that not look totally out of place with the rockface (the lighting doesn't help). It's all a very interesting process. These two channels tend to have good drone footage in very high resolutions:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCg72Hd6UZAgPBAUZplnmPMQ

https://www.youtube.com/user/dhuting

One of them watermarks the lower left-hand side of the video, so you'll have to crop out the bottom 15% of your screenshots. The iridium plug-in firefox plugin for YouTube makes taking the screenshots ultra fast. If you open all your screenshots in GIMP (File open as layers), you can crop the images to a selection, export them as .ora, and then extract them with 7zip, or another archiving tool. I've found this to be the fastest way to export dozens of .pngs at once from GIMP.

That's objectively not true. Every single UI change in 2.8 makes a little bit slower than 2.7 - All together that makes 2.8 a significantly slower workspace than 2.7.

>They'd be quite dumb to not take that gem of a programmer in.
They should but I think that not gonna happen, He says that they could merge all now but what blender needs is a new data structure from scratch designed for the sculpt/vertext paint mode, he said "This is not an easy task, and it will probably take several versions to get this ready for master before any of the tools can be ported. You can think of this process like going from the pbr-viewport branch to the draw manager and EEVEE. In the meantime, the current sculpt-mode-features branch could be supported as well, as some tools it has are crucial for some people’s workflow." and I don't know if that's a priority now.

Black albedo + non-white metalness gives you that. Basically you modeled metal, and those reflections are correct behavior.

>> No.686892

>>686857

So Im understanding and testing, if I had pure black albedo that was masked (is metal - white area) id get no reflections.
With that in mind so for non-metals (dielectric) what would be the proper way to get rid of reflections since I read its fixed reflectivity? Do people use AO to cover that or something else? I tried messing with roughness but the reflections are still there just more or less blurry.

>> No.686902

>>686892
If you just want it to be a non-intrusive black material, I just set it to a really rough dark dielectric material.
As for getting rid of reflections, play around with the specular slider in the Principled shader. Just drop it to a lower value until you get the look you need.

Thanks, that seems to work decently.

One last question, how are you supposed to properly mix an AO image to the Principled shader? I read in a few places to "Just multiply with albedo then stick that result into the color slot in the principled" however that doesn't quite seem right since the effect isn't really that noticable/doesn't do much for darkening reflections.

On sketchfab I see models that have a separate AO map and is that blended differently?

I've been spending the last 3 days practicing sculpting in blender, and finally made a head just now i don't think looks horrible!

What do ya'll think? (i know ears are wrong, but i couldn't be assed to look at references, it's too late)

>> No.686930

>>686928

Looks like you've gotten pretty comfortable with the tools (maybe a little crazy w/ the pinch) but your proportions are almost all wrong.

Especially the placement of the ears, the lips not wrapping around to the side, the non-existent jaw, a brow that disappears into nothing but forehead, no orbital socket to speak of, etc. etc.

I'm sure some ascerbic asshole will come along and offer brutally destructive criticism (I guess you kinda expect that) but I have a couple of facial anatomy shorthand tips I use and they're pretty easy to remember:

Tops of ears align just above the eye line (and the recess of the nasal bridge aligns with the ears) and the bottom of the ear aligns with the bottom of the septum (that skin between the nasal wings)

The width of the nose is almost always the distance between the eyes.

The center of the eye almost always aligns with the corner of the lips.

The jaw always terminates before reaching the ear.

Minor deviations add character, major deviations set off alarms in our brains. Unfortunately, your face has too much character. A little more practice and you'll have it.

Unless you're using Eevee, you don't really need an AO map.
That being said if you have to have one, the general practice is to do what you said. Take the AO and multiply it with the base color. If you need it to be more pronounced, just use a higher value. No one is making you use only a 0-1.0 value.
Reflections won't darken because they're reflections. It's light that's bouncing back, of course it won't darken just because the color is darker. Something that's black but reflective will still have bright highlights, dielectrics anyway. IF you need the AO areas to have less of a pronounced HL, maybe try mixing them in with the specular or roughness.

Don't worry, you're getting there. But even if this is your first head, it still could use a lot of work.

Take a few days off, relax, work on something else, forget all about this. Then when you're ready, get back to work with a refreshed perspective. You will catch a lot of mistakes you hadn't seen before, try not to get overwhelmed by all of them because this is the hardest part, to not get discouraged, and to keep pushing forward. Just focus on one piece at a time, think about the elements as individual components: eyes, forehead, mouth, nose, cheeks, jaw, etc. Get a lot of reference, think not in the anatomy, but in the shapes that get made, where light hits the face, where it gets occluded by shadows, how they fold and combine with one another. Compare with reference, frontal faces, side faces, from up and down and every weird angle you can get your hands on, from drawing tutorials, and yes, also from anatomy pictures. No one can just come up and model an original face only from memory. Chip at it, little by little.

I know someone already listed all the defects your model has, but I don't think that's the way to learn, I wouldn't pay much attention to it. You need to realize your mistakes by yourself, you need to be your biggest critic.

It's just a method for achieving a result. You need to give more context to your question: Are you asking if you should learn to sculpt as part of assembling a skillset for a job working at a studio?
Depends on the studio, depends on if you're a generalist or a specialist

Should you learn it in general because you should probably be a little familiar with some of everything, even if that doesn't become your concentration?
