i think he literally means the ink on the paper.
no idea if there's any new features on display here, since, if you were dedicated enough, you could make pic-related by hand today.

that said, serjan probably generated the glyphs in houdini so there could be some legwork being put in by arnold here to get that inky look

I decided to learn Box Cutter and then Hard Ops in 2.8 because I heard they are unbelievable. I have Californium, the latest available on CGP. Can anyone offer me some tips and tricks related to these addons so I dont have to struggle so much, thank you.

Right now I just learned the very basics through youtube and I am overwhelmed.

you just dont want to admit that hops is good and learning it is worthwhile. You are in denial. I will soon be pumping out robots at a really fast clip.
You are literally braindead.
The arguement that started this is your claim that subdiv is not worth while learning. I never said booleans or other tools are bad.

you dense retard I too use hardops a fuckload but do you not understand what he was implying?
He means you cant make crisp hard surface models with curvature and complex non geometric shapes without the use of subdivision

the wheel in that video is a geometric object, he meant the hull or shell of the car without the use of subdiv

pls enhance your comprehension

for example, could you make this with booleans?
other Hardops/Boxcutter user here.
I think there is a stupid misconception about this workflow.
Masterxeon1001 created this addon initially for fast concepting. The resulting mesh from it is not supposed to be the final mesh, its about getting forms in place, fast.
You have to fix the mesh, retopo it or create a subd mesh if you want to have it proper and clean.
People who don't get this, didn't payed attention.

I did this some time ago, lost motivation and said "fuck it"

Looks good, all that weight reduction and hard surfaces are nice. +1
I used to get in trouble for doodling on my assignments and tests. I realize how unprofessional and immature it kind of is though.
Half the time it wasn't even really conscious, but in any case it was just something that helped me concentrate.
Most of the time I'd just have another piece of paper handy to doodle on, but some teacher's weren't into that because they thought I was cheating or some shit.

You are hitting U to unwrap again after marking the seams, right? Also show the edit view with everything unselected so we can see where your seams are.

Those aren't doubles, there aren't enough seams so some parts of the unwrap are becoming squished. You can start by adding seams to the rim of these things I marked in green.

Now you need seams right here. UV unwrapping is like reverse origami, you need to make cuts in the places that let you lay it out perfectly flat or as flat as possible. Try duplicating the object and using smart UV project on the duplicate, that'll give you an idea of where cuts need to be made.

I got to the end of the Blender 2.8 Tutorial series I was watching. Are there any others I could watch? He never even got to Animating anything.
Uninstall blender and download proper software first
I was really young and I don't remember. I think I was trying to make a house.
Ironically, the first thing I made in 3d was in google sketchup for a school project and it was also a house. We got a good grade because we were the only group who turned in a project with 3d.
This makes me feel something. Just can't put my finger on it.

That we know of. I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out that Israel was covertly pouring large amounts of money into the Foundation.
autodesk fags seething.
The truth about blender in the industry is that no one wants to deal with Adobe or Autodesk. All of the 3DCG industry is developing or supporting blender in some way and wishing that some day they could make the switch.
And blender the software is already mature enough to replace a lot of 'industry standard' tools, the only thing blender's really lacking is being able to provide support for artists.

This is *exactly* what I came itt for. Sometimes /3/ is okay.
Padding is important when you're importing assets into a game and the textures will undergo mipmapping. You don't want the down-scaled resolution textures to result in one or more uv islands encompassing colors that were not within its borders at the max resolution.
Its possible that whoever made that book didn't consider this. However, they may have been careful enough to ensure the uv boundaries were preserved at the lowest resolution.

7 replies omitted. Click here to view.
if you want an excellent tutorial torrent some professional course on zbrush then apply what you learn in blender. the tools are quite similar
Because they are starved for social media attention and they have run out of material (All they know how to do is sculpting and texturing) so they're doing it over again using social media savvy memeware. Note how they often go back to Zbrush and export into Blender when they want to create real work.
Because Blender gets a lot of attention right now (and they use it to increase their viewer/subscription count) .
Also don't forget they them-self have starting to use Blender since recently so it makes sense that they talk about it.
I am sure they'll also do more Zbrush, Maya and Mari stuff.

How much programming and scripting is there involved in creating basic Houdini effects? Can I get away with just adjusting sliders and not doing anything technical?
50 replies and 7 images omitted. Click here to view.
mGear for Maya is pretty fantastic too.
So Houdini sucks for character anim because viewport playback is slow? Is Blender any better?
When it comes to character animation there is Maya, and then there's everything else.
IOW if you were thinking of using Blender you might as well just stay in Houdini instead.

Hey guys
Does anyone know much about designing a plug in for sketchup?
Basically I want something that I can feed a 2D image to (just black and white and all straight lines) and have it trace the lines for me automatically - so I don't have to repeatedly do it.
Thanks for any help,
OG Mudbone

Yep, no joke once you become a corporate prick who can afford sketchup pro, Derrick becomes a barista.

How the mighty have fallen,
Is it not possible to import svg/vectors into Sketchup? That seems like an extremely basic thing to have. If so, just convert the images to a vector in something like illustrator and do that. It might come out a bit messy, but it'd be just as messy as if you did your plugin.

If not, depending on how it works, you could just import them into another 3d program and export it in whatever Sketchup uses. Blender for sure can import svg files.
It is possible.

OP can you post an example of the kind of picture you want to import? I have used all for years for work.
If what you want to do is what I think then you don't need a plugin for it.
But you might need pro.
Pro does give more export import options and I think importing a svg is one of them. I'm not home so I can't check.
