Right now, it is easier and even cheaper to get a threadripper than a 3000 series GPU. Does anybody here have any experience working with threadrippers for rendering? Right now I could build a pc almost from scratch (re utilizing stuff such as my old gpu and my ram sticks) and get a threadripper+noctua+a baseboard for threadrippers for less than 3K, while in my country the rtx 3090 currently sells at 4K usd...

That doesn't make sense though. All bodies are different in real life. So a 3d body with "bad proportions" isn't a real issue and doesn't exist.
Most people have hips though, unlike any of his sculpts.

how the shit do you get to this level of animation? I mean it must be multiple people animating only that one single character over the course of months, right? it's not a work of just one skilled guy, right? the rig itself must have like a billion controllers by the looks of it

A good physics engine, and AI. You give it key frame positions, and it fills in the gaps.
I met the woman who was the hair model for Brave once. Animators would come and pull on her hair to see how long red curls work

>Maybe we'll finally stop seeing shitty, linear-interpolated porn renders.
To see quite better but still an AI interpolated look alike porn renders? That's a lot on the user tho, I am interested if animation can become a behavioral tool where you define the behavior of your models so they will do things according to their behavior that you can work on top.
Nah, just 3d porn that doesn't look like some chump downloaded a model off of smutbase and doesn't even know what an animation curve even is. They just put two keyframes down, and go to town on the camera. Or worse, they animate every single body part moving in some way, but still using like 2 keyframes per bone.
It was a joking remark, but most things said in jest have an air of truth to them.

Really I'd just love to get my hands on some AI interpolation stuff for my own work. Mixamo itself is used by tons of people, but it's limited to what they've got on there. It works well for a place to start, but something like that with AI could really blow things wide open.

I highly doubt so. Life has taught me that in 99.99% of the cases, people only ever use 5 to 20% of what they get taught at college and the remaining 80% is never, ever touched again.

Can someone explain weight painting to a retard and how you should approach it. I know it's supposed to determine how "limbs" are influence by the bones but isn't that why we make bones in the fucking first place?
fellow retard here
something that helps me is to pose the skeleton a bit, THEN do the weight painting
the model will keep its pose, and it updates in real time as you make adjustments
Now fuck off, illiterate chimps

BB-L Communication and control device.
This Concept was entirely done inside ZBrush, using only Dynamesh. I was inspired to learn ZBrush along with this workflow around a month ago after watching hours of tutorials from Mike Nash and his next level use of the software. He has inspired so many, and is now sadly gone. his work will continue to live on as the pinnacle of 3D concept design, for all of us to look up to.


How can I learn this power?

Kek same here, brother
I don't have a smartphone. I wonder if it's the case because /3/ is the only number board. If it was not for /3/, you would probably get /a/ instead.
Should we create a petition to rename /3/ to /td/ or is that gatekeeping?
I would be fine with /cg/, but there is no reason to change it.
what's /td/?

Yes, but they're not as easy to trade in as NFTs.

It's up by your viewport settings here, clicking on random will give them to you.
What is the best addons/software you’ve used for hard surface modeling. I wanna make mechs
there are many options anon.

To me your picture looks like a combo of zbrush and photoshop hack job later, it's not all 3d.

to get parts like that you have multiple options, fusion 360 and do it in cad, boxcutter in blender, liveboolean in zbrush or good old 3dsmax or modo. It's just not an easy question to answer anon there are multiple legitimate workflows to get that result.

I would just start with a regular DCC of your choosing and get to work poly modelling some regular unspecial props to get your head around it before going crazy.

I want to get into performance/motion/facial capture. Is iClone a good program to start with? I have little experience in 2D animation, but I mainly want to learn it because I'm an actor and hopefully working in games in the future.

Oh yeah, I bet she's way below the standards of a pussyslayer like you.
The cheapest facial capturing device you can get is an iPhone with Face ID, the results are pretty good.
Better than fucking around with half assed software.
iClone is trash tho.
She is ultra cute, but Senua is a bit ugly t b h, especially when she makes those faces.
indeed, not my type. But at least she looks normal, not like her 3D character's uglification which absolutely looks like shit. Now calm your tits.
Senua is a 3D scan of her head, they even do the makeup on her face and 3D scan it for textures.
She's ugly because of the weird ass faces she constantly makes, but those are quite fitting to the games aesthetic, Senua is meant to be a psychotic schizo and I feel like they're doing quite a good job on capturing that.

How the fuck was anyone able to do those short movies in Blender when the viewport unironically played back at 10 fps for them (20 at best)? I can't imagine how you'd be able to animate anything properly with that.
12 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
per 2.8 the viewport played at 60fps for me
Change programs then? That's an easy answer, but that's not the question OP was asking. He was asking how people do it.

Well, the answer is you've never needed real time animation preview to animate. Heck, even discounting all the "it's not until 3ds max 1 in 96 that we even had real time previews at all" answers, people have been animating fine with flipping as stack of paper sheets as their previews. If OP cannot imagine how to animate without a real time preview, then they fail at a basic skill requirement of animators throughout the last century and that's on them.
>If OP cannot imagine how to animate without a real time preview, then they fail at a basic skill requirement of animators
>does blender support rigging a shitty low poly approximation of your model to the same skeleton and hiding the high poly models until you want to render

Why the hell wouldn't it?
>Maybe just use better software?!
I'm already dug in too deep to turn back. Been using it close to 10 years, and some problems with performance when I occasionally bring in an armature isn't really worth the trouble of switching.

A real craftsman does the best with what they have, but knows that things can always be better and improved.
If you were actually doing anything worthwhile you'd run into these issues. You're just a apologist faggot that probably just fucks around in daz and renders in Blender.
