>Last Thread
>>726257

Use this thread to post any free resources or anything else that you'd want to share with your fellow anons. Textures, materials, brushes, models, references, tutorials, anything that you think might benefit another anon, please post it here.
It might help to check the Pastebin before you post, in case there might be duplicates, but it's not a problem if you don't.

Almost everything on the Pastebin list should be free. That doesn't mean it's CC0, so if you're wary about copyright, it might be a good idea to check the license of what you're downloading first.
Some sites may require a signup, and some might be sites that are "free" but limit how much or what you can download.

Let's get to it!

Can anyone point me to free Blender shaders that resemble this sort of stuff?

https://blendermarket.com/products/komikaze
>>
>>742979
No, but for what it's worth, almost every one of those are just a variant of the exact same thing.
It's just using the "Shader to RGB" node and using the output as a mask. Then you can put all sorts of effects in the shadows pretty easily.
Or you can plug that into a color ramp, and get color banding like the "Hope" example in your image, or take it to the extreme like the "Prism" one.

It's all so easy you can do nearly all of it in like 4-5 nodes. Shader to RGB is pretty powerful. Though it only works in Eevee.

Only one that doesn't fit in is the "Kismet" wireframe one. Though I highly doubt that it's the shader doing the work. Odds are the dude slapped a decimate modifier on it, and then used the wireframe node.

If you need help with replicating one of those, I can see what I can do. They all look pretty darn simple.

Added the blog link and meshroom to the list.
The blog is definitely pretty interesting. Definitely gonna try a few of the tricks on there.

I'm avoiding putting YT video tutorials on the list though since I don't really think it's the right place to put them. Since they're not really "free resources" in the sense that they're something people typically pay for. Since they're YT videos and all.
That being said, feel free to post them in the thread though.

Did you check the pastebin? There should be a few links to brushes in there in the "Brushes and Alphas" section.
As for clothing patterns nah there isn't any (though if anyone has good links I'll be sure to put them up there). Best advice is to check up on pinterest for that sort of thing, or sewing blogs.

Sorry, dunno why I included the link from >>742979's post.

But my point still stands, it sucks at how Cycles sucks at non-PBR shading and rendering.
>>
>>744217
>it sucks at how Cycles sucks at non-PBR shading and rendering.
That's just not what it's for. It's like trying to use a hammer to drive in a screw. Sure it can do it but there's better ways. Cycles is mainly for "realistic" lighting conditions and renders. It can do NPR absolutely, but there's better ways.
If you're doing NPR, then there really isn't any reason NOT to use Eevee.
That being said, I do wish that the Shader to RGB node was in Cycles. There's quite a few use-cases that aren't NPR where it'd be useful. And currently, there's no way of taking incoming light and using it as a way of masking in cycles without doing either compositing tricks, or using vector math that only really works with one light.

I don't know much about programming shaders/renderers or what have you, but I do wish there were more screen-space effects and things in cycles. Shader to RGB being the main one, but also the bloom from Eevee is pretty nice. Being able to turn it off and on and work with it in the viewport over doing a bunch of compositing is nice.

I've got an account there, and I did what I could to search for textures.com textures, but I couldn't find anything.
Depending on how you use the free ones there though, you should be able to get away with using them close up. How are you wanting to use them?
You might be able to try using an AI upscaler as well that fills in the details if you're really desperate.

How do they even do stuff like this?
>>
>>751352
You learn a shader language, look at the source to various shaders to figure out how they do what they do.
Once you start to understand how the image is calculated you can start modifying them to create new effects.

If you know your highschool trigonometry you can go straight to learning about vector products.
Once you're armed with that knowledge you can sink your teeth into writing shaders.
>>
>>751352
Read this >>743043

>>751353
Don't kid yourself. Each one of those "shaders" are piss easy to replicate. They don't need any high-level knowledge or coding experience or a "shader language". One node is doing all of the heavy lifting. Shader to RGB. That's it. Using that as a mask, you can do all sorts of crazy shit with it.

Here's a great site for people that want to use real-world dimensions, but have trouble finding them for random objects.
https://www.dimensions.com/

It's in the pastebin, and I've been using it for a while, but I don't think it was ever mentioned in any of the threads.
It's pretty useful to find some rough/basic dimensions at a glance when making objects. It's not a blueprint site and it doesn't give you every little measurement, but it's perfect for getting the right scale for things so you can keep things consistent in your scene, or build a library of objects.

Meshroom is very interesting. I have downloaded Meshroom but I'm yet to use it. I'm skeptic about it because the other photogrammetry (paid) software I used in the past was bulky AF. Meshroom is super light in comparison, the results in the youtube videos look fine, but I dunno, seems a "to good to be true" situation.

Bro. You can literally count the polygons.
In the time you've been waiting for someone to post a model that no one has, you could have downloaded blender or pirated max/maya, gotten a basic understanding of them from the ground up with 0 knowledge, and made it yourself.

This isn't a thread to spoonfeed you faggots, go to /r/ for that shit.

This isn't a piracy thread, or a thread to circumvent paying for paid addons/software/resources.
This is a list that provides links to resources that are freely available for everyone to begin with.

Besides, Flip is free (like all Blender addons). Just grab it off of the github page for it. The only thing people are paying for, is to support the dev, or they're to stupid to actually grab it from the github.
If an addon doesn't have a github page or similar you're shit out of luck, but "pirating" addons isn't technically illegal, just frowned upon.

Yes.
All it's missing is the presets. Which are pretty much useless unless you have all the exact requirements for the scene that they had when they set up the preset.

If it's a version or two back, it's not a big deal. Since the functionality is all the same.

Hello /3/, I'm sorry this is my first time here.
I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but is there a site where I can download rips of N64 models that work in blender?
I just want to analyze them to understand how these models were made.

I read somewhere that you can run them in an emulator (p64) and export models from there, but are models extracted like that even similar to the originals?

Sorry I'm new to this stuff.

Anyone know of some decent beginner animation tutorials, preferably for 3DS Max? I'm getting to the point in my game development where I really need to start making animations instead of looking at static boxes for all my characters especially since I'm starting to delve into creating abilities and attacks for them
>>
>>778640
Once you get the basics down of moving bones and how the graph works, the best tuts aren't even using 3d software.
It's just about perfecting the craft of animation.
As for dedicated tuts for 3d animation, I don't think there's any in the pastebin, though there used to be I think. The site alt-f4'ed though.
>>
>>778728
yeah that's the challenge for me
I can't wrap my head around actually moving the character around efficiently. or the graph
I kind of figured out how to set keyframes and put IK on some limbs but for some reason my keyframes won't take the IK into account and ignore it, also I couldn't figure out how to set that up for the entire body
>>
>>778729
Yeah I also find that stuff to be a bit difficult.
I just wish I could just go into the scene in VR, and just grab the limbs to pose them. And if need be, step on top of the model and grab the hands or something to make them mimic my movements.
It's something that's being implemented in 3d suites, but it looks like a long way to go until it's really useful.

I wish I had some tuts or something for you to follow too though. If need be, you could always look for Blender tuts. There's a ton around (though 90% is beginner stuff and low-hanging fruit), but things like keyframing, the graph and manipulating bones is pretty uniform across the board for most softwares.
