>He thinks his renders are better because he uses paid software
Why does nobody on this fucking board pirate shit
>He spends thousands of dollars in an animation software he could make faster and free on Blender
>>688036>>688035>>688037>buying and piratingyou do realize there is an inbetween option right?what are student licenses
>>688046Blendlets cant wrap their head around this concept.
>>688035Nobody thinks that, you absolute disgusting and retarded shithead. The end result is always dependent on the artist AND the tool, but the work of the artist weights much more. But a better tool can make your work much faster and there are tons of things you simply cannot do with one tool, so you need a better one, or more than one. >>688037There is no open source equivalent of Houdini, so if you want to do high quality VFX with lots of simulation you are fucked with Blender. It's simply not possible since Blenders Simulation tools are shitty and 20 years behind. Even Ton acknowledged this. There would be no "Man in the High Castle" or "Next Gen" without Houdini. End yourself you fucking retarded open source cocksucker.Both of these are not even top class, forget making a real triple A blockbuster movie just with open source software.
>>688035Cycles isn't a very good renderer. I stick to what I've learned, mainly Renderman and Octane.
>>688035>>688037>blender shill>starting another shitty software war thread>trump picskys asap OP, you're cancer on this Earth
>>688059thisCycles is utter garbage, I really don't know why anyone would defend it
>>688081Who said anything about blender until now, friend? Blender lives rent-free inside your head.
>>688150Reread the quoted posts, reretard.
>>688046I buyrate, personally
>>688190>buyrateWhat do you mean, exactly?
>>688150oh yeah, I really wonder which free software anyone could refer to on this forsaken boardnice try though, you should be proudtell us about your extra chromosomes now
>>688191I'd think it's buying stuff and instantly refunding but still keeping the files. Although this won't work for software.
>>688035From what I've seen on this board, Mental does seem better than Cycles. I have no idea what is going on with all that noise.
>>688452and it's not only the noise mate.. Cycle's physical properties and color space are inherently messed up
>>688471How so? I've never had a problem with color space since filmic came along. Previously I had to save raw and edit in photoshop to fix exposure.
>>688583filmic is a crutch that attempts to correct the problems, but the overall thing remains incorrectin other words, it's a subjective fix on top of a flawed foundation
>>688615>the overall thing remains incorrectBut how, exactly? I did a quick test, and it appears to handle color well.
>>688036Many either do and don't mention, or they use actually use Blender, which you couldn't steal if you try. Also, if you are someone who can afford the license without much issue, there will generally be less issues with getting stuff to just werk, while being sufficiently up to date to utilize the pirated software with the rest of your workflow.
>>688046are there any guides to removing the digital watermark from the student licenses
>>688035>he thinks he will stay employed using blender
>>688621Clueless here, but is that standard procedure to leave specular on your plane? Colors would be more true and darker/richer without.
>>689807Yes, if physical plausibility is the goal. That shader follows Disney's approach, which uses specular as an artist-friendly control, on dielectric materials, for F0 reflectivity. It corresponds to the range between 0 and 8 % reflectivity, and 0.5 (the default) is 4 %, typical of dielectrics.
>>688037>>688035Blender is for 16 year olds who make a 30 sided non manifold object with double faces in between games of fortnite, and think they are ready to work for blizzard
>>688793Yes, its called pspad
>>690352Are zir triggered faggot?
>>690352>Blender is for 16 year olds who make a 30 sided non manifold object with double faces in between games of fortniteoh shit my sides
>>690352ha ha wtf
