Are there any polygon-based modelling programs that would work well for someone who finds parametric modelling intuitive?
I've used Autodesk a bit for uni and found it very easy to learn, but upon opening Blender I was entirely lost. No toolbar or useful information panel, and none of the options I can click seem to have any real effect on the model. Most I've managed to do is pull individual corners of the cube around.
Any other options with a more clear workflow for someone who's used to dimensioned 2d sketch -> extruded solid -> modifying surface features?

The word tou are looking for is Rhino. The secondcword is Grasshopper.
>>

you embrace parametric modelling and become a hard surface god. If you need organics learn to sculpt.

You'd think so.
But from something like this done in houdni you'd see the thing explode, it running over debris on the floor, the which would act according to momentum impaired, you'd see individual paint chips flying from the explosion, etc...

The most fun to be had with stuff like this is doing that in unreal engine. It's also the most work, but then you could put on a vr headset and deploy these yourself.

Delusion. If you rip out tonemapping, the same scene should render almost exactly the same, especially if you deal with straightforward surfaces and lights (which is honestly 95% of CG work).

Blender. Takes a day to learn how to render. No point in all these software wars, unless your need a specific look in your caustics. If you want to listen to these retards' advice, just go on cgpersia and download whatever you want for free.
>>
>>930561
The only part good about Blender is that it's for free, you can install it on whatever system you please and it won't install any spyware shit along the main sw. The UI is atrocious, performance too. God why can't they just copy Autodesk controls dumb fucks

What are you talking about? You can sell public domain material all day long, you can even include PD content as part off your copyrighted work.

You just wouldn't be able to make any claims of infringement on the PD portions if they were copied. What may need to be ruled on is how much human interaction is require for copyright.

In a way, we lived in a charmed interstitial period where technology had improved human quality of life and opened new vistas of human endeavor.
Soon it will all come crashing down as the true telos of technological advancement comes to full fruition - mindboggling amounts of power, including intelligence, controlled by a tiny fraction of humanity.
What they decide to do with the surplus mass of truly useless and fully obsolete humans is completely up to them, *if* they can even maintain control of these systems and avoid skynet just doing its own thing.

What is the most efficient and correct way to make hair cards? I have a feeling that it's the same as getting good topology or making a texture seamless in that it should just be done by hand in a very slow and meticulous fashion. Xgen and fibermesh just scatter curves all over the place that you need to go in and manually adjust anyway so is there really any reliable streamline?

Something done in Houdini probably.

Worth mentioning that having a model sheet image and the software skills isn't enough.
You need to know your art fundamentals.

Color & light theory. Sculpting skills (how to see and understand 3D form and how to replicate it), narrative (storytelling) skills, character design skills etc etc.
Look at things you like, and try to understand why they look like that, and what makes you like them.

Why is blender the most advanced thing ever ?

Want to make a scale (like the one you have on your ruler).

Blender
>make a cube and use the array modifier on it.

Photoshop/GIMP
>REEEEE you can not do that REEEE make it imprecisely by hand REEEE

Want to make some curves who have XY symmetry at the same time ?

Blender
>Use mirror modifier and turn on XY symmetry on a curve

The code is available but it's not a Python script. It's a patch that overwrites the metaballs code with SDF code. It's very interesting if you're a programmer and know how recompile Blender.
https://download.blender.org/source/blender-2.76b.tar.gz
https://www.python.org/ftp/python/3.4.10/Python-3.4.10.tgz

That's what you need to replicate it. However it's possible to do similar things in Geometry Nodes. Maybe someday I'll write a tutorial.
Also, take a look at this:
