Why does sculpting lag so much in 2.8 yet object view is so smooth
from the internet?

well you can always download textures for free but getting the particular one you want can be a pain in the ass.
you have dedicated sites that sell textures for 3D artists and i think the monthly sub is worth it. especially if you plan on doing environments.

As a leader in the free avatar distribution movement, I plan to use this to great effect against people who think they're safe.

what are the major benefits of opensubdiv and ptex for an independant artist? i heard ptex has zero multithreading efficiency due to renderman, but i'm curious about a workflow revolving around a zbrush model that's just ptex'd and thrown into mari, since i hear mari doesn't give a fuck about how many polys are on a mesh. that being said i do wanna keep doing map passes and rework the mess to make it riggable, but i can't decide whether i wanna rework from the initial sculpt or have a base mesh made using some other modelling package.

i may end up just simply making my zbrush model, baking a normal map, and zremeshing to make the base mesh but i heard that's also really shitty. should i just build on top of the sculpt mesh? then it'd just go into either mari or substance painter for the texturing, which i may just keep really simply for a character's skin/hair, although something more organic like a reptile or some other hairy beast would probably be more reliant on some composite passes. speaking of hair, how does one texture hair if at all? do you just use a solid diffuse and work with an anisotropic shader? should the hair curves be defined in the main rendering package or can you export from zbrush?

ptex was a meme from start to finish.
>t. poorfag & brainlet

Don't listen to the mongs on /3/, ptex is just leagues above the average untalented underpaid asset monkeys browsing this board
Ptex is just texturing per polygon, how is that more complex than the whole unwrapping shit?
1. The slightest topology modification immediately invalidates all your textures.Think of how easy it is to work with zbrush polypaint, you can rip your model apart and keep the texture. Now imagine the opposite of that, where the slightest pin prick will destroy everything.
2. Ptex only works with quads OR tris. Exclusive or. You cannot put a single triangle on a quad mesh, or a single quad on a triangulated mesh.
3. Your texture maps are opaque binary heaps, not recognizable images. You can't open a .ptex file in Photoshop. Even if you could it would just be random triangles. Generally, the tooling for ptex sucks ass. Don't want to use Mari, Maya, and Renderman? Sorry, that's what you're stuck with.

I'm curious what artists at WDAS think about ptex. It's probably not a big hassle if you have a pipeline where everything is already set up for you.
It'll be fine when you've got it all tooled up and pipelined for you. Same thing when all the studios switched to UDIM years ago, all backend stuff. Good old UVs have been relegated to proxies these days, due to how useful they are for attribute transfers and deformation.

Genesis 2 import into Blender. We last left our off going for details on the coat. Extruded edges for sleeves then weight painted.

but the weight painting is a problem. We have to build our closes around a zero figure t-pose. then when the arms go down then the poorly painted weights round out clothing seams that should be sharp and well defined.

so fuck it we say.

we plan on exaggerated poses so we will create the sleeve geometry on the fly as needed.

let us see how we can detail this coat tonight, brethren from a different motherin.

Really more like the majority of 4chan posters / visitors. Mostly fragile egos and social rejects with little to no self esteem, ready to drag anyone down to their level. With the protection of anonymity, why be nice to someone when you can fellate yourself on top of that persons back?

Thats not to say I haven't had my run in with genuinely decent posters who have been helpful or offered good feedback without propping their inflated, Internet dick on my shoulder.

>Really more like the majority of 4chan posters / visitors.

True but for some reason even in art school, or events/ parties or get togethers,I've always notice that fucking mentality, more so I think because the art world is filled with shitty people like this. Pretentious self entitled people, with low self esteem even more so with the PC/ sjw crowd and of course the hipster brigades. Not too sure how apparent they are in the 3d biz but graphic, commercial or fine arts forget about it, its like hell on earth. Though I guess with the way blizzard and ubisoft has gone, its probably worse then I think.
Totally relate to this regarding fine arts Cg is much better because more collaborative and specialised.

>looks at leaning tower of Pisa
>hey Bonanno, your tower is leaning. Did you build it on bad foundations?

This is how you sound, anon. Do you even know what the Dunning-Kruger effect is? It doesn't really relate to this, the guy said he doesn't like the way things look and that they all look boring to him, then you demanded he prove his worth in order for his critique to be counted, then you declare that he must be really bad and thinks hes good? Are you fucking retarded?
Feel like I need to clarify the first part was direct critique of your claim, the second was an explanation of what happened.
I didn't say shit about the effectiveness of C4D. Only the people using it. I actually said it was a decent program. The way people use it and the stuff that comes out of it is boring to me. For some reason though you've got it in their head that I was shitting on the program. I don't give a fuck about what someone uses, just use it effectively and don't settle for what everyone else is doing. Which is what I was complaining about, on Instagram all you see is the same stuff by people using C4D, and it's shallow and boring to me. I just want to see something more than mocap data on bald people pretending it's "deep".

This guy >>655234 , isn't me.
"It looks bad" is subjective, "If you change [this, this, this, this, and this] you will get a result that more closely conforms to your goal" is objective

Subjective "lmao it's shit!" opinions are absolutely worthless, you aren't helping the guy get better (incidentally, this goes both ways: subjective praise like what you get from friends and family is also shit)

Objective "If you change [these render settings], and [add a 3 point lighting system], and [adjust the camera settings] and [arrange the objects in the scene in a deliberate way], it'll be more effective [as archviz / animation / a still render / whatever]"

Technical flaws are fixable, subjective "I don't like this, it doesn't appeal to my tastes" can't be fixed
Blender is free and popular, so naturally it has a metric fuckton of users. Of course you're gonna come across idiots more often than in pricey industry standard software because the audience is bigger and more amateur.

You could expand this to all 4 seasons with a nice little transition between the different seasons less drastically in a circle and spin the camera. It would look pretty cool anon!
Maybe have a small low poly bird flying through them or a wolf or something!

Also, who says you can't set the timer again and do the dog now?
