CGPeers’ registration and invites have been closed down for months now due to a rogue person/group targeting the site and uploading infected files.

Using both old and new accounts (from invites and registrations), the entity has been able to “poison the well” per se.

Now who could be behind the poisoning of the well? What are his/they’re motivations behind this?
Is it just some personal vendetta or were they hired by people in the 3D industry to take revenge?

Personally, the latter seems extremely plausible to me. What are your thoughts?

>Raytraced
Welcome to /3/ kid.

Raytracing was expensive back in the 90s. Now Pixar was always really hesitant about raytracing anything and they didn't really make Renderman a scanline-raytrace renderer until after(ish) A Bug's Life, prior to that you could make calls to a raytracer. You could argue that maybe that was a part of the film that was rendered later and would have used some raytracing, but more likely based on the time it was shadowmaps. It may seem like extra work and unnecessary now but back then it was faster.

>>753329
>>753346
The Reyes renderer has a shading language and is used to create procedural textures, the bread in Ratatouille is a fantastic use of procedural textures. REYES itself is like a programming language so knowing it and how to use it is/was a headache, it's probably way easier now. There's parts that are obviously 2D textures and I'm willing to bet Toy Story was textured 2D, so not everything was procedural.

Renderman/REYES seems like hotness you would want use but honestly without a dedicated render team it's difficult to use for a small team, I haven't gene back to look since late 2000s so it might be easier but I doubt it.
>>
>>753376
Your paragraph is kinda incoherent, but I'll go with it. If it was a shadow map then how would the shadows move with the characters?

CGP has a dozen or so but what you really want is MIT school archive from a few years ago. Literally has introductory sessions, a beginner break down video of an engine, and then runs through an intermediate class with students listening to the instructor.

You gotta learn some efficiency.

You're probably piss poor at everything you do, have shit ton of useless modifiers and work with shit assets that are way too high poly. Along with that, your render setting are surely horrendous making your renders insanely slow.

60 fps is useless.

Yes. Just make sure you a) monitor its temperature and b) have proper cooling for your PC in general and GPU specifically.

what are essential sketchup plugins for someone who works in interior design office?

Blender. just model everything in blender and export it to sketchup if your clients want a sketchup file. Its literally faster to learn blender from scratch than trying to model anything more complex than a cube in sketchup. i have been there trust me

What's the difference between a modeler and environment artist, is it the same as a character artist? I'm a complete noob.

Most ppl want to be the hero its the same reason why most ppl play dps characters or most ppl want to be the attacker in football.
Modeling the main characters is cool, modeling the main scenes is cool.
Making a spell or rigging a character is less cool.

Im working on a high poly character, its going to be used in Unreal. It has a lot of details, clothes, accesories, hair and so on.
Which is a good polygon amount? I want to keep the detail and resolution of the model, but lets say, reducing the amount to 100K its so average. And most of the mesh lacks of detail in most of the areas. I dont want to relay just on normal maps.

Next subdivision level is around 700K which I dont know if it could be a lot of polygons, specially for slower machines. What would you consider a good size for a high detailed game lets say ps4/ps5/2020 pc ?

Unreal for example has a ton of bloat turned on by default even in the "empty" sample projects. I assume similar things apply to Unity.

100k is massive for a game character.

forgive me if this is the wrong board for this (there's a lot of 3d elements in these videos so i figured it fits here rather than in /gd/)

but how would you go about finding assets used in creating motion graphics in this style? surely they aren't making every single model in here, right?

this shit is super cool and i can't figure out where they're sourcing some of the stuff from. if they are making it, what programs are good for doing abstract 3d renders or old school looking models like these?

Well that was incredibly painful to watch, people like this sort of thing?

As far as 3D stuff goes only thing I saw that wasn't just basic geometry, or something that could be made in very little time was a 3d female head; looked like most people first attempt at making one, and various Sims or sudo Sims like your pic. If you wanted to go crazy you could use Houdini to makes those but that's huge over kill, any particle simulator would be able to makes those.

yeah no, go posit your e celeb bullshit elsewhere, moreso since this idea in essence is just a twitter tier lul-no-context-sex-stuff shitpost.

So I decided to do something totally different from the 3d I'm used to and started learning MD. I've made a few cloths now and am quite happy with them, but I'm a little stuck for inspiration, so I figure why not get inspiration and maybe help out someone else here.
Post some pics of cloths you want making and if it like them I'll make them and share the files afterwards, it's not going to be fast. Takes me about 2-3 days per set. If you want it for a specific avatar i'll need to make another version but shouldn't take me too long.
