/3/ theoretically speaking, what is the easiest 3d job you can get as a freelancer? I just want to do 3d for a living.
youtube 3d intros (never gonna make it baby's first c4d) - vj clips (1 min abstract loops are pretty easy to make) - motion graphics/after effects templates (videohive-tier i heard one indian guy made one million $ making only one wordpress template)
people who seem to be making a living out of 3d freelance
So I started using Blender about 3 weeks ago and about 3 or so days after getting started I figured I should start lurking here. I have really only lurked a couple times and something I have noticed has me a little concerned with my choice in Blender.
With that, I want to ask. Why do so many of you hate/ dislike Blender?
Right now im mostly using blender for my own personal projects but intend to integrate it into my graphic design business for product rendering and maybe more if I get better / good enough to do other stuff.
Here's some good advice from an expert:
Disregard all the bullshit on this board. It would be better for you if you didn't lurk here. Instead I would advise you to read (!) beginner tutorials and learn as many of the keyboard shortcuts as you can. Then slowly start watching videos. Choose the ones where the person has screen cast enabled so you can see what they're typing at all times.
Go to blenderartists.org for more support. This place only has angry, impatient teenagers.
people produce garbage with blender because the tutorial are not up to par with how fast the industry is moving. blender as a program is up to par but the tutorials aren't.
iv seen blender reels that blown me away, and that's only from the top 10% artists who really dug in and explored the program
>Why do so many of you hate/ dislike Blender?
It's just a board meme, like squatz 'n oats on /fit/ or "playstation home gaming consoles have no games"
The fact that it's free, runs on almost any hardware, and has really ugly default settings (for the love of god, stop using the grey World setting as your only light source!) so you end up with a lot of garbage much the way you get lots of garbage pbrush.exe doodles
What are /3/'s opinions on The Models Resource?
Is it a good source for video game related models?
Doing fallout modding and wonder where i can find a slider body generator.
Should i sculpt it?
What is the best 3D program for someone who has had no previous experience with 3D before?
We all know what we're good at when it comes to 3D, but what are some things you're not good at or lacking in? Even if it's just a little annoying to do or something you don't know at all.
I'll start: I'm pretty confident in modelling and animation, but I'm shit when it comes to UV unwrapping and textures.
hey guys, im trying to do a personal project with "Anime look" specially like Sidonia no kishi. while im studying differente frames i realized that "line" on the edge of the model based on the position from the camera. im trying to find a way how to do it. but i cant imagine whow to doit without post production. ¿or it's a prostproduction process?
How do you make a "glowing" light effect like this?
That particular picture was most likely rendered using either VRay or Octane, both of which allow for simulation of lens effects like bloom or glare.
That being said, you could also just use Photoshop to fake the effect in post production.
can /3/ tell my why each face is rendering the world independently rather than one reflection for the whole model? using blender
torrent for new C4D r18 ???
want to be able to FINALLY multi-edit reflectance channel?
theyre scrapping that shit software soon better start learning maya or blender, kidd
>go from c4d to blender
if you dropped it at maya, it would have been and argument. shitty, but still. but blender? that's like saying to unlearn photoshop and learn gimp
Okay /3/. This is my first thread here. How do you prefer making facial rig? With shape keys or with bones? I still cant decide. http://www.strawpoll.me/11550606
Personally I use bones, but that's because it's for a homemade project with a custom engine that doesn't support shape keys yet.
An advantage of bone rigs is you can share the animations or expressions if you rig all the faces the same way.
Also it kinda depends on what you like more, sculpting or scripting.
So this means we are fucked right? There's no way /3/ wouldn't be one of the first boards to get axed
The most we can hope for is a maerge with /gd/ I think
Asian moot talked about the server overloading and they can't pay for the huge server traffic. So the boards getting the axe are probably the ones with the most population, most image wemb/gif uploads and most complained about. Which I'm thinking makes /soc/, /pol/, /int/, /gif/, /wg/ best candidates.
Their server overload problem wouldn't get fixed at all if they delete /3/ or /ic/. With a slight cocky confidence, I think I can say that we are one of the most productive boards with least population, I think we're in the safe.
How do i make a solidworks cad file read only
I dont want a 3d printing place stealing my prototype i've worked on for months
Can't make any file "read-only", whether it's for Solidworks or any other software. Only way to do it is not to give out the file to anyone else.
If someone else has the file, they can do literally anything they want with it, regardless of how much you want to protect it. It's the same reason that every DRM ever can be cracked/circumvented.
I know that you could covert the file.to a pdf but im not sure if you can still use it in that form for printing
Anyone know of a file type thats compatable for a 3d printer to print but not an editing software like solidworks or autodesk?
How alike eachother are free programs vs. paid ones?
Whilst the txt says none is "better", I assume they will be quite diffrent from each other. But by how much?
If I were to get good in blender, how much trouble would I have getting into Maya?
I have maya in my education-course, but was thinking of going for blender to get better at 3DCG in the course.
(And yeah ESLpost. Sorry.)
noone cares which program you use , just if you make good stuff, only I think if you work at pixar or somewhere else where you need to literally work on the same thing with others (in the same program)
Does this program ever go on sale at a discounted rate?
I know it's already the cheapest tracker, but I wonder if it'll go on sale around the holidays.
