THIS is peak level modeling and animation, how can I achieve this?

what do you mean? the movie is unironically good, the design of the characters are rather simple and the budget is clear, but the writing and the action scenes are god tier. it's not hard to see it as a masterpiece at all

>>751509
I am >>743728 >>747037 whatever that has to do with anything. To me Lew's animation skills are real and his perseverance is impressive.
But his cinematography and choreography doesn't hold a candle to the leaders in that art, which is what the term 'god tier' implies.
It's not that Lew is very bad at it, it's that there are people that are magnitudes beyond what he has on display in that department to warrant such a label.
Guess my point is Lew is only perceived as extraordinary because he did all of this alone (which is extraordinary)
If this was made by a studio it would all be recognized as rather mediocre and forgettable work.

However calling his writing 'god tier' is an insult to screenwriters. Writing a screenplay, as opposed to making an entire animated movie, IS a one man job.
And there are thousands of people in this world that are more talented at that task than Mr Lew.
All I recall from Killer Bean Forever is that it contained lot's of tame high-school level humor and obvious gags.

>Guess my point is Lew is only perceived as extraordinary because he did all of this alone (which is extraordinary)
yeah i agree and that's mostly my point. it's rather impressive the quality he managed to achieve (in some aspects more than others), but what i like about the writing is how fitting it is with the rest of the film and how it works in favor of the atmosphere of the movie the way i see it: a rather low budget piece that impresses every now and then by the contrast of its cheesy story and character models to the fluid animations and (here we seem to differ in opinion) rather smart voice lines and jokes. it's good to me for the same reasons i like tarantino movies. it's, within it's scope, a masterpiece

With the advancement in real-time graphics technology these days, how feasible would it be to produce a high-quality CGI movie or series using a game engine like Unreal Engine or Unity? With the advent of technology like real-time ray tracing and the recent reveal of UE5's Lumen and Nanite, I think it would be amazing for smaller studios and animators being able to have near-offline rendering quality at real-time rendering speeds.

Literally none of those caveats are an issue when it comes to answering the question of 'are realtime engines viable for producing quality CGI movies/TV series?'

To which the answer is obviously yes.

It doesn't matter if the scence runs at .5 FPS when you are rendering it to a video file.

It's immature directors thinking it's 'max cool' if your characters are depicted as the most ultra badass ever.
After Matrix everyone was fighting like in the 'lobby scene'. Now John Wick is the rage so everybody try to mimic that style of close in "jiu jitsu with guns" type action.

Then you have a director who knows nothing about jiu jitsu and nothing about guns and still want "just like John Wick", and this is the result.
Also Biogazard aka Resident Evil comes from Japan and the Japanese eat that shit with a spoon, in japan fighting is not about efficient direct action, cover and deception.
They want lot of "spirit" and emotion with big flowery displays and intense staredowns with lot of wordy dialouge and grunts and moans.

Which becomes super silly when dialogue exposes takes place at gunpoint where people keep pointing weapons at one another while holding fire with ever increasing intensity.

>It's immature directors thinking it's 'max cool'

No. It's immature audience who eat this kind of shit up. What John Wick did was make actual fighting look cool. Then they ruined everything with its 3rd iteration going into absurd territory. "Fuck techniques, if it looks cool let's keep it."

Truth be told you have to know at least a little about fighting in order to even be able to appreciate an actual fight.

Plus it requires a whole lot of effort to sell the "cool" factor of an actual fight to an unknowledgeable audience.

Watching MMA almost everybody will understand if they see a highlight reel of successful techniques. It's the groundgame and rangefinding stalemates that get's them bored because they don't understand what they're looking at.
Every once in a while there is a fight everybody understands, pic related.

So I've been looking into available jobs in the Redmond/Seattle area at video game companies, but I noticed that (almost) none of them are hiring 3D modellers/sculptors.

Which I find odd, since they are one of the major components of (most) games.

Most of the positions they are looking for are coders.

What gives?

True.

t. Eastern European grunt worker. Although I wouldn't consider it completely modeling monkey job because I often have a lot of creative freedom with assets, especially if there is no concept art at all for a particular piece. It's nice, you can work on all these AAA titles from home, without having to travel around, overwork yourself to death in the main studio, and for a shitty pay because life is much more expensive there.

Also don't start as a freelance if you can avoid it, get into the industry then try to jump-start freelance business on the side.

Not really.
Even triple a open world games tend to feel incredibly empty and meandering and they have millions in funding and massive teams of professionals.
Open world is largely a meme imo but the notion that one person with little to no experience is gonna make even a basic one work well in a few months is extremely unlikely.

Do not poly-model characters unless you are a retard. Blender has sculpting tools, use them.

16:00 and on gets into your issue.
TLDW it's related to light bounces but more bounces won't fix it because the ray's trapped so to speak, instead you'll have to cheat by making the material pretend it's transparent past a certain amount of bounces to free the ray.

Nodes and visual programming are important because the artists who are going to use the software and drive its development/funding are NOT going to want to learn to program.

If the software requires programming to do art, then maybe artists should just learn to program. It's not like they have to become computer scientists; knowing the basics is enough.

It makes the most sense to simply support all modes. You more or less get visual programming "for free" if you already have a source-based API and a node GUI. Blender has had both for ages.

It was weird when I realized that a majority of 3D content you see in games actually really is made by "kids". Low to mid 20s. Lots of those simpler props are probably made by juniors, so like a 19 year old or something. And a lot of them already work in AAA, producing high-quality content. As a 25 year old who recently got into this industry, I actually kinda feel old already. There are lead artists and art directors my age, damn it.
