what are you working on?

HDRIs are slow as shit though. Plus I just want skies, not an entire ground to go with it.
Should also add that most HDRIs I've been able to find have both sky and ground, and I'd rather my own ground than having to rely on someone else's ground that likely has shit that only serves a purpose in some scenes or have things like houses in the background.

Besides, it and the rock thing are the only good things Andrew has been able to pull out his ass (not saying much, but still). The problem is that he's expecting 200 bucks for something that's really only worth half that at most.
Unironically go get hdri's from the daz3d pirate sites. They have heaps.
mind linking me one, Google's retarded and won't give me any results on them.

I know how to use the optix denoiser and my god the speed. However its not temporally stable so I can't use it for animations. I have to use the cpu arnold denoiser buuuuuut now that I'm batch rendering I get watermarks in my renders saying ARNOLD ARNOLD ARNOLD.

What do? Is there a way around this without paying? Should I just use renderman?
Use Sequence Render instead, for some reason that gets rid of the watermark. Also make sure the render view is somewhere comfy on your screen if you choose to have it up, that bitch won't move once you start it up
They offer you the power of Arnold for free, and you complain about a simple watermark? Fucking millennials, I swear.

You don't sound like somebody artistically talented or even mentally stable
>pressing buttons = creating art
Do they enjoy it though?
Creativity is meaningless without hard work. Everyone can get a cool idea, but if you can't bring it to live (because of a lack of skill) then it doesn't matter.
Ahaha take a look at this cuck. What a joke

>I'm a mechanical engineer but fucked around on Blender for a while and can do pretty solid concept designs and renders, and it's accelerated my career sooooooo much.
Wouldn't it be faster for you to use a CAD focused tool, such as Fusion360? I'm honestly curious. I personally find that, for concepting, sculpting > polymodeling (organic), and CAD > polymodeling (hard-surface).
>not modelling in Houdini

Why would you willingly subject yourself to such pain?
How do you get to study this craft on your own?
I don't think I'll ever get to work on this, but maybe to design my own house in the future.

Is it just me or is 3ds max so fucking gardbage?

>long time user in blender
>decide to move to 3ds max for architectual visualisation, since everyones using max apparently.

>oh, everything done to the object are added as modifiers. thats fine....
>want to extrude something
>huh thats funny I need to convert the object using a modifier, instead of puhsing the tab button in blender
>huh thats funny, the extrude function is only going in one direction.
>thats ok, i'll watch a tutorial on how do it properly, thats from 2006 , but it doesnt matter since max hasn't changed at all since then.
>remind myself that the simplicity in blender was better because you could create what you wanted faster.
>remind myself again that blender has changed FASTER than max.

I get 3ds max has a big learning curve , but it can't be this difficult just to make simple objects? Compared to my start in blender all those years ago, I was faster at creating and editing things than I was in max. At least Maya is better in every regard because it closely resembles blender functionality. Simple functions and shortcuts to edit your mesh. So why cant max do the same? Get rid of the uncessasary options and modifiers, and update the UI.

You're both childish retards.
t. a kid.
Hwy, I'm not the guy arguing about Modo vs Blender in a thread about 3DS Max and how "useless" it is.

If anything, you're the kid. Hell, all of /3/ are clearly kids if they're going to get into slapfights THIS easily.

open up the extrude options and change it
Cheers, I was being retarded i guess. Real wierd that the extrude settings changed on their own.
what website do i go to when the signup becomes available, google gives me nothing
A link is usually posted on /3/. Just wait until then.

>a lumpy sack of potatoes
They are being kind. It looks like you sculpted a turd into a walrus. Give it proper shading and you'll have a magnificent turd-sculpture. Which, now that I think about it, doesn't have to be bad. In today's world, you can do that on purpose and call it art; even start a whole new movement of turd-sculpting. Coprolitic art, fuck yeah.
> he uses blender
sigh. i’m not even going to try and make the joke. because it’s already been made for me.

i’m sorry anon
Looks like a walrus fucked a sheep
looks pretty bad desu
tone down the potatoes and add wrinkles/rolls instead

Any good exercises or resources to practice 3D? I'm a beginner in blender and while I know the basics I want to learn fundamentals and general knowledge. Cheers
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.

Don't. Every 12-year-old asshole does guns. Do something challenging like vehicles.

Guns in 3D are the low hanging fruit.

But he's a beginner though
The lowest hanging fruit being kitchen ware. Not to say theres anything wrong with that, though.
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.
This little series is very good to get started and learn the hotkeys:

A guy I know has been making a game in Unity and we've been arguing about whether or not its graphics qualify as isometric. To me, the answer is incredibly obvious, but I'm interested to see what y'all have to say about it
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.

>Isometric is about the angle of viewing as well.

The key part of that sentence is 'as well'.

If the camera isn't ortho, it's not isometric.
Then just change the camera to orthographic you fucking retard.
'Isometric' purely describes the projection method of the camera, nothing else.
It has nothing to do with how the camera is tilted, or moves in the world.

how do i do this but in 3dsmax?

you do realize he means collapsing the boolean operation right? why are you making a big deal out of this?

Nice normals interpolation m8.
Can like one thread not devolve into a jerkoff contest on what software you use to make your shitty loli waifus?
I didnt know sketchup was capaple of that, unless theres plugins at play
