If you have ever used this application you are part of an elite race of 3d modelers and general computer hacker nerds in general. I'm talking about Anim8or. I used it when I was a kid, it was my first experience in 3d, before I got the copy of Maya 5 PLE with Unreal Tournament 2004.

It may not be able to do anything complex, but the fact it could get something simple done quickly puts it in my top 5 list of 3D graphics software.

Having to boot Blender or Maya for anything 3D feels retarded. It's like booting up Photoshop when all you need is MSPaint.
>>
>>929957
>Using it in middle school because my computer couldn't handle Maya PLE
Godsend, but without any good tutorials, I feel like I lost years of potential progress. I think there was some sort of issue in one version or another with the way it calculated transformations, too. Still, best starter package until Silo and eventually Blender.

Same, except 3dsmax and UT2003. Shoulda went with Maya. I used the first release of MODO, besides crashing constantly, it was legit. Thanks for sparking a memory I forgot I had

What's the quickest/easiest way to learn hard surface modelling in Blender?
Know nothing about mesh/polygon modeling, just opened up Blender and I'm completely lost. Can't even manage to change the cube.
Don't really care about organics or rigging characters or anything like that, so a tutorial that skips past all that would be nice.

Just commission someone who is better than you and have fun with the model. Why does it feel like people forget that paying for stuff is the only easy way to everything.

End result doesn’t look as good as everyone would say. It looks like a prefabricated late stage wokeism building for american cities.
It doesn’t look interesting nor “fun” as the developer would insist on you.
As for the practical application, isn’t it faster and easy to learn how to model a house by yourself? Just google some references.
Ikea stuff looks really off, even irl

It's time to move from basic game animation loops into full cutscene KINO.

What in the actual fuck can be wrong with this simple object? When I try to remesh in Blender the pc goes crazy, cpu and memory at their limits, literally must physically press the reset button because you cant even use the mouse.
Theres no weird geometry/vertex/faces, or edge fuckery, its very simple, tried making quads from tris but its the same BS
Tested just in case and I can remesh anything else just fine
Happened in Blender 3.1, now using 3.4 but no change, what in the actual fuck open sores sisters???

I tried remeshing a 500k vert object to a very high resolution to prove you wrong, but it hung blender for 30 seconds and then crashed.
However, it can handle remeshing 500k verts down to 200k verts in only a few seconds

My bad just came back to it. I'm currently trying to make the most obvious folds and not attack memory/detail folds yet. But I don't know.

Im a newbie in 3d, I have a question regarding this UV set, why is the helmet missing half of the texture? Is it mirrored? If so shouldn't it need another uv space or just the fact that it's mirrored negates the need for a space? Idk if my question makes sense

You can overlap the UVs so they use the same texture area for both sides.

I went back to making my 3D models, and holy shit, I ended up making a new style, evolved from my npc style into a model developed one.

Seriously now I am impressed with this waifu, and clearly will start focusing on this new path that I just discovered.

This idea of making my game characters, with the idea of them being cheap and easy to be taken to produce merchandize, seems a winner idea.

This wifu is much much easier to produce some metal mold to produce some plastic toys and keep the cost around 2-5k to produce such mold for an injection machine.

Texturing would be just pretty basic stencil work, so shouldn't be any issue.

Honestly this style is a much better idea than anime styles which cost more than 50 grand to make.

And not just plastic injection shit, I think is a trivial model for cushion type of plushies and other cloth based toys.
Design is easy enough to be nothing more than trivial cloth patterns and some stich work.
