Don't get why people are saying Blender. Sure, it's not the best software, but fuck me it's the furthest from forgotten / deprecated due to how goddamn rabid the userbase is.

That's more a con of /3/ more than just a Blender con, anon.

'Course, that's redundant since /3/ itself is a giant con against all 3D software.

Ok I know we have 17 threads on maya (or maya vs blender) but none of them actually answer the question?

why is it that maya is better, an industy stanard and blender is literally never ever software?
why is the streamline into game engines so easy with maya?
why do blender models always look so cheap in comparison to maya?

Irrelevant. Barrier of entry simply refers to how easy it is to get the product. Not how easy it is to use it.
>>
>>663284
If you think the biggest difference between Blender and Maya is the use of hotkeys, or if you think Blender changing its UI would help it at all in trying to make inroads in the professional world, you are truly a clueless monkey.
>>
>>663285
That's deliberate. It keeps low-IQ individuals from using Blender.
>>
>>663041
YouTube, Amazon, Netflix, none of that counts. It's Hollywood and Hollywood only. That's right, all you other countries can get fucked alongside the internet!

In all seriousness, it's just simple: Maya was developed with Disney, and it reached a more widespread consumer base first. Blender was always meant more as the Hobbyist's software that just wound up being used in stuff like Hardcore Henry, Secret of Kells, Wonder Woman, Next Gen, and Supermansion among other titles through sheer dumb luck.
>>
>>663279
Which makes it all the more nonsensical that no one, let alone here on /3/, has actually tried to make said middleman software, unless that violates that license.

It's definitely not a hardware problem, I've been using blender on the same laptop for over 2 years and it run smoothly but a few days ago, windows 10 had on of its stupid "updates" and now blender crashes everytime I try to launch it. I tried everything, I deleted it and reinstalled it multiple times, I reinstalled all my drivers, I tried older versions and nothing worked. The only thing that sort of worked was putting OpenGL.dll in blender's folder, now blender does start but It's laggy as hell. What should I do?

that can't be right, its not the windows update.

might be an optimization issue with the gpu. perhaps windows update changed the rate of optimization, re-install gpu drivers

download an older version. the newer versions need opengl 3.1 or something to run.

I know because I had a similar problem running blender on an old laptop.

GPU user here. I've never had that issue. Even with an older computer running 2.79.

The model itself usually isn't hard to do. The hard bit is having a character design that works with a low poly count and being a good enough texture artist to pull it off - and in the case of Fear Effect, intentionally flat lighting.

The fascist axe symbol has always pissed me off. How the hell are you going to hit something with the axe head when it's almost as long as the fucking sticks you have wrapped around the damn thing for some mysterious reason?! And that's assuming there's an actual handle to hold it from. Good lord, fascists are dumb. No wonder today's blackshirt militia unironically think they are the antithesis. The only way to salvage this shit weapon is to make it a throwing axe with dynamite sticks.

Now listen up idiots. First, most people come here to learn, not because they have an expert knowledge on the subject.
Second, this supposedly shitty board has near-zero moderation and yet it is a whole lot tidier and useable than most of the site. That's because le 99% edgelords are conducting themselves in a civil manner.
Third, people aren't laughing at your jokes because your jokes are dumb.

Sage goes in the options field.

OP of the UE4 general here - yep, I was pissed the thread didn't survive for the full year. I was planning to update it in 2019, but didn't really pay attention in the last few months to notice that it has actually been killed by all the new garbage threads that got opened in the meantime.

Opening a new one, but this time let's add Unity here as well. It keeps getting better and better and it has actually been my main engine for the last few months (still prefer UE4 though).

Hopefully these threads will be more active this year.

Can you explain this? Idk what you're talking about.

Unity is still mediocre in several areas, especially HTML5. But in 2019 it will be boosted in my opinion, past some areas of UE4. Both are capable though.

Do you really think a random person will teach you blueprints? You remind me of stupid pajeets in youtube comments.
