Haha no it was something else.
It's bad because he didn't ask "how to make this shape", mongoloid. He probably doesn't even understand shapes in the first place.
>people like you easily confuse the "muh drawing skills" with what it actually practices,
I think you're missing the point, which is that drawing is just better to learn form than 3d, because it's just quicker to experiment with and because it forces you to visualize form. Not to mention the tools tend to get out of your way. Even if you go the loomis route, imagine practicing with basic forms like cubes and cilinders and so on, and how much more convoluted that is in 3d compared to drawing a few lines in a piece of paper.

>with what it actually practices, which is observation skills
Observation skills is far from the only thing drawing practices. You can add visualization, feeling form, suggesting form, values, general shape and form awareness (for studying), dexterity, error management and acceptance, and probably some other things, and most of these are notoriously dificult to practice in 3d alone. It's a "the right tool for the job" mindset, nothing more; drawing is better to learn art.

Make no mistake, anyone who's good at 3d is not a stranger to drawing, so stop literally SEETHING and grab your pen and paper, it's not that hard.

My point was that you can practice those things in three dimensions as well, and for that matter the act of drawing isn't necessary. I will agree with you that it may be simper and removes some tools/software barrier that someone not familiar with 3D will have, but if you're familiar with ie. Zbrush though, then there's no real reason to practice volumes/form/shape/etc with a discipline that is not your end goal.

Overall I think we agree but to me it all depends on how familiar or not you are with the tools and what you want to focus on first. Personally I would learn the soft and then anatomy, but someone who would want to learn anatomy/form first then yes, drawing would do the trick.

Finally, no need to use buzzwords and caps, mate - I'm not some trolling blendlet. And just so you know, as a happily employed senior 3D generalist I can admit I'm shit at drawing but learned the necessary complementary skills via other things like photography and traditional sculpting. So yes, drawing is useful, but let's not pretend it's 100% mandatory or even the most productive thing to do for someone who wants to focus entirely on 3D.

Hi anons, I'm working on blender and its the first time its happen to me in 5+ years.

I've made a quick animation to test boobies physics.

I've quit my workstation and came later, seems I have deleted the keyframes ( but I'm not sure ). I checked dopesheet, graph and timeline, even the proprieties of bone there is NOTHING but animation still work perfectly...


Could you help me please ? Thanks

The truth is, I've been unable to enjoy video games for a long time. I thought I just didn't enjoy video games anymore, but then I realized there are very few games that are worth experiencing to begin with. Hell, I realized the same applies to just about any form of media. At some point you need to focus on what you love the most and get inspired by them, instead of continuing an endless pursuit to find something else.

Ever since I got into 3D art, I've started using my lack of interest as a motivation tool. Even if I do consume entertainment media, it serves my purpose. I take notes, I take sxreenshots, video clips, audio clips, etc.

Don't let your dreams be dreams. Don't force yourself to enjoy sub-par entertainment just because your mind is conditioned to do so. Set your own standards, believe in your tastes and serve your niche. I wish you all good fortune.

Maybe like a self taugh guide or a blog or a github page with a curriculum to self teach yourself drawing, anatomy, modelling, rigging, texturing, animation, particles, visual effects, motion tracking, video editing, after effects and using cgpeer tutorials or free courses on youtube?

Or at least a proper pastebin?

Do you use any special addons? I cannot get transitions and such to work, like fade-ins. The fades always start on the wrong frames or attach to the wrong clips. I've used Power Sequencer for some things but it doesn't always seem to work.
"Nothing is intuitive, only familiar"

You only find things "intuitive" because it's what you're used to. Also you talk like a fag and your shit's all retarded
This. When you purchase an electric drill for instance, there is absolutely no difference between that tool being activated with a single button located where your index finger would be when holding it, or it having voice controls that listen to the sound of three chords that have to be played in sequence on a nearby five string violin, which isn't noted anywhere in the manual.
A-Are you trying to describe z-brush with that second comparison?

Out of curiosity, did you personally know the guy who invited you? I'm trying to gauge how strict/paranoid they are at AVFX. Because the more paranoid they are, the more valuable the content inside must be, right?

>I just don't get why he wastes time and energy on vertex paint.
He is merging the sculpt and vertext paint mode, the goal is to remove vertext paint and do that in the sculpt mode because it is easier to implement instead of keep 2 modes and it is faster, I really want to know what are his plans for the texture paint, I suppose the goal should be something like Substance Painter

Sure, nobody likes nodes for basic things, lots of the tools are there but the workflow is horrible.
Acceptable performance in edit mode. 2.8 shat the bed with this.

>a blender donut died for this

You know how metalness basically changes the specular color to be the same as the diffuse in a PBR workflow? I've been trying to look for infos on whether specular works the same way in real life or not.

In real life, is it simply whether a material is metallic or not if the specular is colored or not?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
I was gonna reply some long ass thing, but you basically answered yourself. Yes, in real life, with most common objects, dielectric = white specular and conductor = colored specular. The IOR values are also different for each, obviously.
Well that settles it. Thanks anon.
With dielectric materials, light enters the medium a tiny bit, gets diffused and exits again, having picked up the material's color (because the material is absorbing all other colors). That's diffuse reflection and it really is basically a very shallow subsurface scattering. A fraction of the light (about 4 - 8% depending on the material) doesn't enter the material and gets reflected at the surface, not picking up color. That's your specular reflection.
Metals behave differently. They are much denser than most dielectric materials and therefore don't scatter the light much at all since light can't enter very far. Just absorption happens - and without scattering, the absorbed light is mostly reflected in the same direction as the specular reflected light which overlaps the specular reflection and makes it seem like it's colored. Metals also seem to have a crazy high absorption rate which explains why in just a few light interactions (1-2 reflection bounces mostly) e.g. gold absorps so much blue that it gets its color while yellow plastic needs hundreds of bounces until it has absorbed enough blue to make it seem yellow.

In short, as >>694900 already answered, metals and dielectrics do tend to behave like that IRL.
Don't forget that it's either dielectric or metal, things irl don't exist in that halfway point (at least I'm pretty sure). The ability to go between is something artists have control over.
yeah.. way to much people produce metalness maps with a lot of areas of various grey shades but it's mostly wrong.. i mean.. some very special materials might exist in-between irl, but most are either absolutely dielectric or metal

That's reassuring. I gave my notice before getting a concrete offer from another studio and the plan fell through, I was visibly (and vocally) burnt out by the end so returning wasn't an option.
