I need help with 3ds max unwrapping.
version 2023
I made video with problem I have. Whenever I unwrap something, polygons close to the border of uv island dissapear from UV editor. They appear in uv editor when I select them in 3d view, or when I select whole uv island with select element option.
The problem is shown from 2:05 of that video. (before its how I unwrapped from start)
pls help 3dsmax bro out.

I’ve been making a model for a small game some friends and I are working on, and I’m at a weird point. I’m trying to symmetrize the rig, but I realized I needed to apply the mirror modifyer first. But if I do that, it’ll make texturing take twice as long, and I don’t know if doing texturing before rigging is a smart idea. What order should I do this in?

I'm doing a project for CGcookie and have to make a low-poly room, but I'm having some trouble making pillows for a bed. I've tried a few things, but here's my current process.
>Make a plane and subdivide it
>In edit mode, raise it up slightly, then mirror it and use clipping
>Join the outer vertices together and raise up the center with proportional editing
>Scale vertically
It's not terrible, but the edges are sharp. The corners were also giving me a weird effect, so I tried removing them.
Is there a better way to make a pillow, or improve my process?
>>
>>911122
rig first and texture after
if you find issues in topology while rigging, they can easily be fixed without fucking up uvs and making you have to redo texturing constantly

In Blender when I set the grease pencil to draw on surfaces everything works like it’s supposed to, but when I try and fill the line art, if it’s still set to surface it will seemingly just fill it in a random place in space instead of in my lines. I’ve found a workaround for it but I’m not super happy with it and would rather my fills just work on surfaces. Does anyone have any idea why it’s doing this and a potential fix?

I’ve tried making the offset a little higher as I was thinking maybe the fill was getting lost in the mesh, but nope, it’ll just appear super far off into the distance.

I want to model these guns but have no idea how, brand new to 3dcg, only know basic extrude, bevel and loop cut, and SubD Surface.
What extra tools do I need to know to bring these beauties into life other than what I'm learning?
>>
>>911188
If you are that new, I would advise that you set your goals for something less advanced.

Here is what I would advise

Learn the very basics of 3D. Learn how to UV unwrap and texturing. If you are wanting to make a render of the gun so you can show it off, I would start learning the basics in lighting and compositing.

Get familiar with your tools. This means the difference between spending five minutes on a task vs an entire hour. If you are using blender, learn what every modifier does. Learn hotkeys. Utilize the hotbar.

Learn the basics in topology, and steer away from the dogma of only using quads. This is not to say that using quads is not important, but there are situations where quads are not required and trying to maintain quads can even fuck up your model.

Learn different techniques and approaches from watching tutorials. If you really do want to model something like this, then at least start with something simple like the grip or the mag
>>
>>911193
This is exactly the reply I was hoping for, thank you very much.
Very brief and helpful to guide me to manageable goals first.
I'll take that last advice to heart and I know exactly how, I didn't really want to, but I'm going to practice with real gun parts first.
I'm a tarkov player so I pretty much know all gun parts names by heart, going to check their official websites and try to model some Pistol grips, Handguards, Stocks, Foregrips and etc.
>>
>>911202
Not him but I'm glad that helped. To add to what he's saying, if you're learning Blender, then learning the hotkeys will help speed up your workflow. I've used CG Cookie to learn, and their tutorial series on youtube may be a good place to start. Watch a few videos and see what you think.
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3GeP3YLZn5ixsnIOIx9tB4v6s-rsw48X

>>911202
Hotkeys are VERY useful. You will cut down hours if you learn them

Another thing I recommend is eventually learning how to bake normal maps on low poly meshes. This is extremely important if you want to make game assets that have a more realistic look while keeping them out of a high poly count. It will be tough as there are many nuances to making good normal maps, and I’m absolutely terrible at it, but im learning and I know it’s a process. It isn’t required but it’s definitely something to think about

I also recommend you looking into different softwares. Don’t do what I did and buy a lifetime subscription to Zbrush, but definitely look into trying free trials like fusion360 or Substance painter. CAD softwares like Fusion360 will not, to my knowledge, be able to give you practical usable mesh models, but you can definitely retopologize them or even use them as a base model to recreate. Substance painter is useful for making normal maps. Don’t use blender to bake normal maps; it sucks ass
>>
>>911206
>a lifetime subscription to Zbrush
You might want to consider that sooner than you think.
>>
>>911206
>>911205
Believe it or not I am instinctively learning hotkeys, whenever I try smt new and it has a shortcut prompt to it I right it down for later, So yeah I'll catch up to it quick.

Thanks for the extra tips and resources, will check it all up in time, I already have academic license for Zbrush and Maya, just going through blender first

I like how certain objects look in edit mode, with those construction lines. How would I replicate that look in the object, so I can export it to unity?

Holy shit omeganewb alarm
Try to learn the fundementals first, watch how to make some basic objects with blender, like a chair.
Research on how to use the grid snap tool, it'll save you a lot of time and is good for symmetry
after you done with all that shit, move onto to ammirus3d, that'll be your gateway to complex modelling and good topology, and study photography when you get to the rendering stage.

you can, but generally it's more work and blender texture painting is shit

i would make a big plane, make it shiny using the shader editor and add a 'waves' texture as a bump map

Is there a way to isolate and scale certain portions of a single model? or to separate it after it's already been merged, adjust it, and then reconnect it?

>>
>>911674
It sounds like the mirror modifier is going away because you're merging the body to the hand object, which doesn't have a mirror modifier on it.
You can merge the hand to the body by making sure to select the body second, or you can just add a mirror modifier to the mesh again after merging if it disappeared.

I'm taking a course on substance designer rn and I try to follow along, but bit by bit I get distracted and end up losing myself in my own project. should I watch the whole thing in isolation and then try to apply the core lessons afterwards? how do you guys do it?
>>

>losing myself in my own project
This is exactly what you should do. You learn by watching someone do a task, then apply it to your own objectives and branch from there. Mindlessly repeating is a failure of modern day education system.
>>
>>912316
Notes are also very important. I can’t tell you how many times I forget something I just learned, know that I have it in my notes, look at it again, then it sticks. If it’s something you think you’re going to use a lot or particularly catches your interest, write it down.
>>
>>912311
1. copy
2. modify
3. create

It is important to do them. Cut out other distractions and focus on finishing that particular one because humans are bad at multitasking.
>>
>>912266
Or really, any decent background/scenery course would do. I’ve already developed an animation in technique in blender that is working great considering all my traditional art and animation skills move right over to it with no issue, but my backgrounds still look novice and wonky. I can dress them up fairly nice with the grease pencil tool, but I’d rather know how to make proper backgrounds for future projects.

from these two opinions I am kind of realizing that I can't multitask worth a damn, so i'm gonna try to watch the whole thing and take notes on it
>>
>>912364
Eyup, that’s what I do and I’m terrible at multi-tasking as well. Just keep a notepad open on the side of the screen, take them as you watch. Don’t worry about misspellings or what not, fix it later, if you are pausing every couple seconds or minutes to take notes you’ll never get through the video so just take them as you get them. As a teenager in high school I never realized how important notes are.. partially because the teachers would never actually tell you which notes were actually important and going to be on the test, but when you pick and choose what you think is important and write them down, they’ll stick a lot better and if they don’t you’ll remember what tool you need and where you wrote it in your notes… and if you don’t you get to read through your notes again to find it and all that information is sinking in again.

Why he is deleting faces and then extruding hole edges and create new faces when can just extrude this two faces without deleting?
>>
>>912407
Doesn't look like he knows what he's doing, which is why he's making a basic tutorial instead of content. Big market for beginner tutorials and you barely have to be a step ahead of them.

Is there a simple way, in blender, to change the color of a texture? Specifically one color of something that has multiple colors in it.
Everyone says to use a color ramp but then everything just turns black and white. I know I can add colors to the ramp but then it's going to be all fucked up and won't be the original colors anyway.
Say for instance you had an American flag and wanted to change the red stripes to blue. How could this be achieved easily?

I downloaded a model from generalbutch's collection and there's something weird going on with the model.
When I open it in blender version 3.2 the body under the clothes doesn't exist but the rig works.
And when I open it in Blender version 2.93 the body is complete but the rig doesn't work.
Anyone know what's going on here?
I don't really know a whole lot about blender.
>>
>>912266
>>912355
anon your question is a little confusing.
are you painting over your backgrounds or do you want textures and lighting to come from the render as well?

if it's the former, spend a bit of time playing around with the focal length of your virtual camera, it'll make a huge difference. and for very dramatic perspectives remember to cheat:
https://youtu.be/l-wUKu_V2Lk?t=186

if it's the latter, you're basically asking, "how do i become an environment artist", and that's a very big question.

looks like you've got a map plugged into the roughness - it's probably a map meant for glossy workflows; invert it.

also, go do some tutorials and learn fundies
>>

mate you're hovering over the mask modifier on the left side...

It's using a mask on the body so that it doesn't clip when the dress is enabled, most rigged porn models I've seen like this have something in the rig that controls this, but you can just disable the mask modifier right there.

That is indeed what it was, thanks.

Actually, that bit about how they used basic colors and blobs in the distance might be what I’m looking for. Right now I’m just trying to figure out how to get the edges of my landscape plane to not just “cut off” so I’ll also probably look into creating a light fog or something to fade the distance instead of it just stopping.

Other than that, I’ve just been watching video after video of people making environments and copying the parts that I need for my own. It’d be nice for a full on course on the subject, but this is working fine at the moment. And sorry if my phrasing of the question is confusing. Like I said, I’m coming from a traditional art and animation background so I’m still getting down all the 3d terms.

I'm gonna need some general advice.
My frustration tolerance is extremely low and my ambition goes all the way to mars.
Over my entire life I basically got so scared of failing and quitting that I barely even start anymore.
This donut is from around a year ago, the last time I started something and quit again.
My question is basically two parts.
1. What are good general beginner tutorials aside from the donut guy? A lot of tutorials I see are just "how to make random thing" where I'd prefer something like a structured course.
2. How do you pick projects that are appropriate for your skill level without being too much to handle?
>>
>>912594
You improve incrementally. Learn substance to make better bricks. The plates are very thin. Look up real object sizes etc. Depends on what project you want to do for tutorials.
>>
>>911073
What's the deal with people following you but not liking any work? Sometimes art accounts, sometimes not.
>>
>>912649
Isn't that just normal? Do YOU like everyone's work that you follow all the time?
>>
>>911989
Select the vertices at the end of the construction arms (the triangular arms, the pointy end), shift+s -> cursor to selection, in object mode click on gondola, shift+s -> selection to cursor

How can I turn this subdived cube into perfect sphere (or what I should build instead of cube at start)? I need a perfect sphere with this mesh geometry. (Yes I still can draw a circle on monitor and adjust vertexes manually).

cast modifier
if you enable the extra meshes plugin in your preferences, you can spawn a "quadsphere" and skip this step

there are no verts there, I did the shift+a ctrl+m, its a single edge

are you sure? did you try manually sliding one of the verts that poke out?
check your normals then

But it's a usual polys dragging with mid-poly mesh, not a subdividing of *simple* low-poly forms. I think it should be more like a pic.

Trying to rig a dress in blender using bones by following this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=55bJB5Wmd_U

Is it a problem if the bottom part curves inside like this in "rest" position? I know symmetrize does not put the bones directly onto the vertices on the opposite side and I will need to manually position each one.

Any, just block it out low poly then sub divide. You'll get super smooth rounded geometry. You can sculpt in zbrush, retopo and make a low poly mesh, and then just sub divide it

can someone please tell me why mantaflow liquid simulation fails at arbitrary resolutions for me? all resolutions above 70 fail, and I need high-res for the effect I'm working on
pic related, it's me trying to get my liquid sim to work. fire sim is buggy but generally works okay for me.
