I need help with 3ds max unwrapping.version 2023I 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.https://streamable.com/ut09cm
3dprintfag here, why the fuck do my spheres all end up as eggs when I try to make balljoints? I have turned ratio on, and off when resizing.
>>911093resize using the one yellow square in the middle of gizmo
>>911096Won't that blow some of my measurements? I measured the pre-existing ball, and am using the sphere3d as the bolean to make a socket. When I use scalemaster, even with the ratio button turned off, it keeps changing one of my measurements.
>>911105sorry I missed the printing part, nvm
>>911073I’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 verticallyIt'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?
>>911122rig first and texture afterif 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.
>>911149>Scale verticallySorry, I meant horizontally. I also shade smooth.>>911166Any tips for doing it in Blender?
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?
>>911188If you are that new, I would advise that you set your goals for something less advanced.Here is what I would adviseLearn 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
>>911193This 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.
>>911202Not 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
>>911205This>>911202Hotkeys are VERY useful. You will cut down hours if you learn themAnother 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 ZbrushYou might want to consider that sooner than you think.
>>911206>>911205Believe 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

https://web.archive.org/web/20220526183432/https://blender.stackexchange.com/questions/106165/sculpting-is-it-possible-to-keep-base-mesh-vertices-in-place-while-subdividingI have the same question as this guy (the stackexchange people didn't provide a good answer)
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? I tried insetting all faces but it wasnt quite good. Or should I use a shader in unity or something? One that applies only to certain objects? I dont want those construction lines in everything.
>>911283First solution which comes to mind would be to export your UV layout and use that as an overlay on your diffuse color
I have some normal maps that I found online, I tried using them but lights appear as if they are 90 degrees off, I heard online that there are two types of normal maps, is there a simple tool for converting z-type normal maps to y-type normal maps?
Looks bad- I'd try and find a way to do it in Shader
How do I mirror vertices around a local point in Blender?
I need help regarding art direction and assets, I want to render models, buildings, like Tatami Galaxy, bright colors, simple, cel shading and strong shadows.Can I do low poly buildings for that? Would it be texture painting or a shader?
I'm kind of stuck on this - how to create the rounded sides of the star (poly modeling)? I can make a star from a cylinder, but I don't want the sides to be flat.
What do you do when you're waiting for a client to reply to you regarding and issue and you cant work on the project in the meanwhile because he could say any number of things and it could be days before he responds to you?
>>911378Sounds like a pain in the arse to maintain with quads
I made these stairs with archimesh but when painting a texture over them its all fucked up, how do i fix this shit?BTW, i have no idea what im doing just following dumb tutorials from youtube.
>>911421I does not have to be quads, it's meant for 3d printing so topology isn't THAT important in this case.
can someone tell me why the chest is shaded differently from the rest of the body, and why the inner arms are flat? There's no edge crease on the inner arms so it doesn't make sense to me.
>>911528nvm recalculated normals and it fixed both
If I have two meshes of different scales and I want to boolean them together is there a way to make the mesh that is smaller fit the area of the bigger one? (without using scale tool and hoping for the best)
>>911451you're UVs are all fucked. they are tool small / too far apart and with the texture resolution you haven't got enough space to work with. fix them and it'll work better
>>911528Holy shit omeganewb alarmTry 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.
>>911544>Try to learn the fundementals first, watch how to make some basic objects with blender, like a chair.already have but I'll do the other stuff you said.
>>911540I'm on a phone. But there is probably option to display bounding box and then convert bounding box to geo. Then you parent original geo to that box and it would be much easier to match 2 boxes scale wise
>>911543>LOL YOU JUST HAVE A PROBLEM YOU NEED TO FIX ITWow, what a great response, thanks, that really helped a lot, I'll just press the fix problem button.
>>911547i explained the issue, your UVs are too small / far part. the fix problem button is to re-do the smart unwrap and make the 'island margin' smaller
>>911540Forgot to mention this mesh is the same as the small one but the bigger one is like pic related
>>911563UVs look better what is your texture resolution? it could be too smallalso why have considered uv projecting the material? i assume your trying to re-create the scene from truman showhttps://docs.blender.org/manual/en/2.79/editors/uv_image/uv/editing/unwrapping/mapping_types.html
What’s a good way to get these kind of dark shadows on 2d looking blender models.
>>911571>what is your texture resolution2048x2048Try to get the same results with archimesh stairs please.>i assume your trying to re-create the scene from truman showYes, doing it for practice.Followed this tutorial to paint the texture https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmbAs9jE1vI
>>911571>>911600Googled how to do the "proyect from view" thing, still would like to learn why i couldn't paint it with the brush.Also, new question, what is the best way to create this kind of water? https://www.deviantart.com/ender-skywalker/art/The-Truman-Show-Wallpaper-782841257Used a shader(Realistic water with depth darkness) on a plane but it doesn't look quite right and it has all those white bright spots.
>>911609>why i couldn't paint it with the brush.you can, but generally it's more work and blender texture painting is shit>wateri would make a big plane, make it shiny using the shader editor and add a 'waves' texture as a bump maphttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtlSIRh5r_Epersonally i would swap out 'musgrave' for 'waves' but try and see which one works
>>911609>>911611for the white spots, they are called 'fireflies' and are generally caused by caustics. there are a few ways online of getting rid of them
>>911611>you canYeah, but how? I could do it on simple shapes but on the archimesh stairs didn't work.>blender texture painting is shitA shame because its a much more intuitive way of placing textures for me.Couldn't get the water to look like https://www.deviantart.com/ender-skywalker/art/The-Truman-Show-Wallpaper-782841257 but its close enough i guess.>>911612Tried to remove the white spots from the smart shader but no luck.
>>911630maybe increase the intensity of the bump, add a displacement modifier?

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? Like if I can just box select the upper half of the body, scale down, and just have the faces of the model stretch accordingly? I tend to need to fiddle with proportions all through the process, but I don't know how to do that after the separate objects for hands, head, feet, etc. are merged together.
>>911640In Blender, by the way.
any blendlets doing mograph?how does it fare compared to c4d?
I am creating a base mesh. I created the torso, and and an arm. Afterwards I created a hand, but when I attach the hand the model loses all symmetry, and now the mirror modifier does not work as before. How can I prevent this?
>>911674It 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.
>>911636Why Japanese use fax machine? Same reason
Im making a mask with a lower jaw that looks like this merged into the existing designwould the best course be to just sculpt the teeth and then merge it with the existing part or sculpt it directly into the jaw I already made.I kinda have the mesh building part of blender down so far but sculpting is a complete mystery to me and trying to sculpt a thin walled part doesnt seem to work right
Does anybody here use Virtual Motion Capture?I made a VRM model character that works in VSeeFace, Unity, and some other software, but in Virtual Motion Capture I get errors where it prints out "[Exception] NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance" and motion capture doesn't work even though all of the limbs are properly defined. Happens both with models I've exported out of Blender and with Unity (UniVRM)
I'm just looking for a word.What is all the compiled assets for a show called?Like if you have a TV-show or a movie, you need a lot of rigs, backgrounds and assets.I feel like there's a good industry word for it out there.Like an animation-project. but the animation and voices aren't there yet, just the "assets".

Why does Merge First and Merge Last in blender do the same thing regardless of selection order?
I'm rendering a sequence in Maya 2022 using the Arnold Renderer, and only the first frame comes out at my desired resolution. (1920x1080) The rest come out smaller. (Around 900x500) I was about to give up and just go with the smaller size by making the original size the same as the rest of I was getting, but then the rest of the images turned out even smaller. What gives? Looking online I can't find anything on this problem, test resolution doesn't seem to be affecting it (it's at 100%)

Anyone have any good tutorials for creating proper animation backgrounds with blender? They are for hand drawn animation and personal projects so they don’t have to be the best in the world. Right now I can do some isometric backgrounds that look fine, but when you zoom in I’m having trouble with vanishing points and making everything in the distance look proper.
This may sound stupid, but how do I learn with tutorials? 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?
>>912311>losing myself in my own projectThis 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.
>>912316Notes 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.
>>9123111. copy2. modify3. createIt is important to do them. Cut out other distractions and focus on finishing that particular one because humans are bad at multitasking.
>>912266Or 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.
>>912350good point, i'm gonna start doing that>>912316>>912351from 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
>>912364Eyup, 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.

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?

>>912266>>912355anon 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=186if it's the latter, you're basically asking, "how do i become an environment artist", and that's a very big question.

>>912450mate 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.
>>912493That is indeed what it was, thanks.
>>912467Actually, 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.

How do you pick projects that are appropriate for your skill level without being too much to handle?

Would I be retarded if I pay the full price for Maya? I genuinely love the software and also love making Blender users seethe on this board. I feel like I owe Autodesk something for allowing me to behave the way I do.
>>913080Yes,A company is an inanimate object, it has no emotions.What you're suggesting is akin to thanking your glass for holding the water you drink.
Where could I hire a freelance 3d modeler, rigger, and animator?
>>913092I've heard there're a lot of people who just steal and repackage content on fiverr. Is that true?
What 3D soft is good for models containing booth precise mechanic and curved "organic"-shaped surfaces like a pic? For printing, render quality and animations don't matter.
>>913100Any, 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 onpic related, it's me trying to get my liquid sim to work. fire sim is buggy but generally works okay for me.
is there a way to apply solidify without edges getting all fucked up with shit clipping trough the wallsthe way im doing it now leaves a ton of cleanup time on the inner walls to prevent artifacts and for shit to line up right
how to analyze photos and what do you need to look at to accurately recreate materials with subsurface scattering?
hello i have some questions to people who work in the game industry as 3d artistsfirst of all are you on a AAA studio or a smaller indie one?then my big questions are:>Is crunch culture as common as people say and does it drain your motivation to do personal work after your job?>I'm also wondering about creative freedom, do you have any or is what you do mostly decided by other people?thank you for response
>>913160Nah I think you have to manually clean that. Modifiers won't know to wich extent these edges should be close to each other so you often end up with overlapping edges. Having edges being too close is dangerous to begin with, without the use of a modifier.So just split that shit up
>>913178yeah I kinda solved the issue by dropping the sharp edges before applying the solidify modifier and switching it to complex and upping the merge threshold a bit to fix up the acute angle'd walls. got no artifacts now anywhere, i'll add in guide loops now that the modifier is applied just have to fuck with having shit fit together now
>>913132But how about mechanical parts like pic? They should have precise dimensions to move. Looks like I should use real CAD instead of Blender at least for precise mechanics and then export STLs to blender.Also, this girl's figure can be very good fitted with a several NURBS surfaces and don't require sculpting. It's better to go with Rhino I suppose? Newer worked with this type of software before, but I'm very interested i working with NURBS or other 3D spline software is any good (Blender's NURBS capability is very truncated, I need something better).
Is this worth the money?https://www.p2design-academy.com/p/alive-animation-course-in-blender
https://youtu.be/KLjTU0yKS00so in this talk he goes over transferring animations between ik rigs, and using parameters to change a few things to alter the whole animation now that seems amazing and like a great time saver but I'm a big noob at animation and not sure how? any guides or tutorials that delve deeper into it and show an example of how to do it?
>>913080i'm lucky enough to have an education version, but i'd never paypig for autodesk software. the indie versions look decent, but even then it's still quite a lot.
i'm looking to get into doing paid blender jobs, is there anything in particular i should be doing to set up a portfolio? Any types of projects i should make for it or skills I should have before hand?

Can any oldfags tell me what this board's reaction was when Blender 2.5 released? It was the version that introduced the UI that was last used in 2.79. I was here when 2.8 was revealed and some of you faggots jumped ship, and during covid when Blender threads began shitting up the board.>did anyone dislike the new 2.5 ui and prefer the old one>did the 2.5 ui get people to jump to blender like 2.8 did>also when 2.61 came out, was anyone impressed with cycles
How the FUCK do you pirate Solidworks?
Help, I am a complete newbie and I have managed to somehow delete the faces of this mesh (Blender), so it's just a wireframe--how do I get it back? I tried Faces>Fill, but that didn't do anything.. Thanks!
>>913334I did a bunch of other stuff in between, which I don't feel like re-doing. Plus, it would be nice to learn something from this mistake!
>>913329Found a solution myself: Just had to select to edges next to eachother and fill them with "F", I think I was fucking up, because I tried to fill them all at once.
Is Blender with addons usable for landscape/garden design? I have extreme dislike towards SketchUp and I would rather pay for an addon with some library than learn that stuff.
>>913341Now activate the F2 addon, it ships with Blender but isn't turned on by default, thank me l8r
I'm setting up some hair physics in blender using cloth simulation, but the hair has no weight and it keeps flinging around with the slightest movement. Is there any way to make the cloth less reactive to movement or something? Changing the vertex weight just breaks the simulation
When I make a sphere from cube in Blender using subdivs is there a way to do different subdiv levels in different parts of sphere?

I'm trying to append a model to a scene in Blender. I go append > collection > zelda and it adds her fine and stuff, but inside the folder i have literally a hundred million different layer things and also I have two different sets of like, rigging or whatever? I'm guessing it's IK and FK but how do I get rid of them when there's so much stuff in the folder?
>>913143Guys p-please...Help me...
Geometry nodes:Anyone have a clue how to convert my string (text, not thin rope) to planes?I tried mucking about with String to Curve and then Curve to Mesh, but no profile curve does what I want (curve line's okay for some characters, but not all of them)
>>911149I actually had good result for pillow following the donut boys tutorial for pillow, this one actually works.You can make two planes weld them at the edges turn it into cloth simulation and inflate, and then freeze your result.
>>913465Figured it out. Fill curve node.
Guys, Posed a character in a way but when I hit render it reverts to the old pose I had set upWhat do?
>>912223If you're looking for good and easy trees google "tree procedural texture", it should work without you having to worry about seams, then you can easily bake those textures to create normal textures. Although if you're looking to use it in some game I think you should check if displacement textures work in game engines or if you can bake those into geometry somehow because I actually have no idea.>>912239Bethesda uses modular approach for interiors and some exteriors, keep in mind to make them same size along all axes so they still fit if you rotate, It's also good to keep in mind if you can work with grid in your editor, then if you size them correctly to the grid you can also place and align them very easily and very fast.
>>913414They are Viruses DONOT TOUCH THOSE
>>911073Is there a way in blender or daz3d to 'flatten' the sides of an object like pic related?If so, how do i search for it because I don't know how to put it into wordsI'm doing some woodworking around the house and got some ideas that I would like to turn into blueprints
>>913609UV unwrapping? depending on what you're doing you might just be able to print out the UV layout and use that.
>>913611>UV unwrappingThat's what I was looking for. Got a whole weekend to delve into it. Thanks anon.
I bought a IPS display for general purpose 3d work but did I make a mistake not going with a VA panel? My contrast ratio is severely lacking, meaning my renders look off to put it mildly.
>>913609There are a few extensions for Sketchup that do that, like 'Unwrap and Flatten Faces,' and 'Flattery.' There are a few videos about them on youtube.
whats would be a good approach to sculpting this part into teeth? the thing will be a helmet once its finished so that part is pretty thing. I tried sculpting it in blender but the walls being thin always fucks up the entire geometry. Fairly new to this shit
Does zbrush have multiple panels for viewing a sculpt how maya has multiple panel layouts?I want to see my model from the side while im sculpting the front and visa versa.
Can someone rate my topology and tell me if I'm doing this right? Also are there any good resources to learn box modeling workflow like this? Pushing vertices around manually and trying to get my edges to flow nicely feels very unintuitive
>>913724No, amd its the single most dumbest thing zbrush has failed to implement on top of many other basic features.The work around is:Shift S to make a snapshot of the angle you want.Drag it to the sideSculpt on the side you wantUpdate the snapshot by pressing refresh.Absolutely retarded. Fuck zbrush
Has anyone used Bsurfaces? I have a question concerning adding a new mesh to it and replacing the sculpt mesh with the retopo one.
How do people make good skin textures like pic related?Is it even possible without photoscan?
>>913789shut your blinds, problem solved.ips color accuracy trumps VA contrast.
>>913785It is a blend of the cavity, ao, and base color maps to make a diffuse map
>>913801Yes, but the skin itself has some kind of grain and some micro bumps that make it look real.I don't know if it could be crafted by hand.Or maybe from base materials for each part of the skin?
>>911073Hi, i used utiny ripper to extract the taimanin asagi game models, and it left these files, how can I open them? I dont know anything about 3D
>>913821You'll probably have to open them in Unity editor and export them from there, not sure if there's an easier way.
Hello good afternoon.I would like to learn how to create 3D models.I know that creating art isn't just about pushing the right buttons, it's about knowing what's available to use, knowing when to use it, and how. I have programming experience and am used to complex programs, I also have basic drawing skills.Do you have any recommendations for a course or book that can teach me the fundamentals of creating 3D art? I know there are many tutorials on different things, but I didn't want to be jumping from one tutorial to another without knowing which way I'm going. I think a guided course or a well-structured video series would be of great help. I'm in no rush to learn it's just a hobby thing.I already installed Maya 2023.Thank's for your time :)

What kind of vidya card do I need to run unity HDRP at 2k 60?
This is probably a really stupid question, but I'm a beginner. I'm trying to learn how to make unity games by following a tutorial, and in the script, the teacher uses:>public abstract void Tick(float deltaTime)To put it simply, I don't understand why "float deltaTime" is in the parentheses here instead of "time.deltaTime. Please explain. "float deltaTime" looks like a totally unrelated float variable that he just hasn't defined and just happens to have the same name, but that doesn't make any sense.

I am trying to do something stylized in Blender. I have a yellow curved object as an orbit around the red planet.I have applied emission and transparency to the ring. I don't want the ring to reflect on itself and give bright overlap when viewed from side.I want to show what is behind it but not show the overlapping of the ring. Any idea how to achieve this? I turned on backface culling but no change. Is there any way to do it using other shader notes like camera ray or something.
>>913938Edited the desired effect in photoshop hurriedly.
How do I get a character like this? I suck at modeling and I was sculpting bodies to get a mesh instead but I cant do retopology
>>914052Follow a basic box modelling tutorial>>913938>>913939This seems to work
>>911073Are there websites with good free scene resources? Some kind of standard background cities or countryside or indoor environments that can be used as a generic backdrop while I try other things.There are websites out there selling such things, but it's pretty expensive. I don't care if it's a standard model everybody uses to begin with, I just want something that's not a flat plane to put the models into. "Utah teapot" background scenes are OK.
does maintaining good topology really matter much if you're just making 3d models to print?friend who paid for college is constantly on my ass for having ugly meshes with triangles everywhere. it looks fine after I subdivide and print
Another stupid question, but is creating a new script in Unity the same thing as creating a "class" of that same name? Like, if I name the new script "TEST", and then open it up, it has the default text "public class TEST : MonoBehaviour, that means that the class "TEST" has been created, right?
>>914054I can't do box modeling, I have failed at that for 3 months
>>913143Please... anyone... I can't find anything on google...
What the fuck is this?These weird seams appear when I assign a normal map texture to my character. The seams are the same as the ones on the UV map, but I don't understand what's happening - the normal map is an even .5 .5 1, so it should be completely flat?
>>914113overlapping vertices? normals alligned? I always check that shit first when shit goes wrong
>>911073Is there a way to turn off the auto-tweening in blender? I’d like it to be off by default but don’t know which menus to get into.
>>914116No overlapping vertices. What do you mean if the normals are aligned? I've tried recalculating them a couple different ways but it did nothing.For comparison here's what it looks like when I remove the normal map's texture.
>>914091I think you CAN have multiple classes in a single script, but yes, making a script creates a new class."public class TEST: MonoBehavior" is the class TEST that descends from the MonoBehaviour class.
>>914113is the normal map imported as non-color? it defaults to sRGB color space if you don't change it, which fucks things up
>>914123That fixed it! Thanks anon. One step closer to having something that kind of works.
how different is blender 2.79 compared to the current one? My computer cant run the newer versions
Is there a way to export all my Blender settings but especially add-ons from version to version or am I doomed to keep a text files with a list that I'll need to re-install verytime I update this software?
Is there any current 3D work that will stand the test of time?
Having a bit of an issue with Blender at the moment and don’t know if there’s a solution. I’ve been testing out the traditional animation tools with the software for a bit, and today I quickly animated a character and began to pan the camera from left to right, and as you can see, because I drew the lines in a 3d space it began to distort the lines. I changed the camera to orthographic, but then it shows the whole scene as orthographic making everything look like a mess. Does anyone have any ideas on how I could pan or zoom in without this distorition? If it can’t be done with the software then it isn’t the biggest deal in the world as I’ll just have to choose my shots more carefully.
Why do textures from Substance Painter look so scuffed? The textures themselves come out well but the maps look really weird when you aren't viewing them on the model with odd artifacting and splotches everywhere. This is from the new Life is Strange game.
>>914234You mean the padding on the uv islands?
>>914234It takes the rim from each of the UV islands and dilates them out the same colour as the last pixel to avoid obvious seams around UV islands caused by floating point errors like picrel
>>914236>>914240Just read up on this and it makes total sense. Thanks, guys. Looking at texture maps in older games, I didn't see much of this in play. Been texturing a model of mine with Painter recently (pic related), I thought I was doing something wrong on my end but apparantly not. Is padding more of a modern thing then?
>>914244Older games often had the textures handpainted first, and the UV maps created afterwards, so they would just use square borders around each "feature" of the model with the base colour.With procedural/PBR/high def texturing, errors like this are a lot more noticable, and almost all modern games pad the texure maps like this.
>>914246Sweet. Honestly that's pretty cool. I feel like I've barely scratched the surface of this whole PBR workflow.
>>914248your cauldron looks pretty neat, probably worth looking at a few substance painter tutorials as well, there are some features that I was completely in the dark about for over a year of using the programhere's a decent one that NVIDIA paid for:https://www.artstation.com/artwork/ZGJ3b0best of luck to you fren
