I created this test ocean in blender. Any ideas how to make it look better? Except video resolution
how do you rig a machine? i get how bones are used on animals, but with a machine you can't skin weight, so how do you apply it?
>but with a machine you can't skin weight
why couldn't you ? you usually just set all the vertices of the part you need influenced to 1 on the right bone.
You may also just parent said part to the bone, but it's bad workflow as you can't pointCache it later
Templates can i get some
So I've mainly been using PBR to texture my models but I saw this one guy who was probably a 6/10 texturer but he started using substance designer and his work went to a 9/10 and now I'm considering buying it but it's a heavy price of $149 and I've been debating for it for a while now.
I was just wondering if anyone has used substance designer and thought it was worth the money?
I use PBR techniques to texture in ue4. I hardly ever use albedos/diffuse textures now
How do I connect those to my poly? 3ds max.
You cant connect floating verticies to a poly. If you want to make an arch connected to a plane this is a better way.
Oh please You absolutely can connect isolated vertices to a poly, just use the graphite tools Op.
1) select the vertices you want to become your new polygon and go Graphite Modelling Tools > Cap Poly
2) Graphite Modelling tools > Freeform > Step Build. Then hold shift and drag the cursor around the vertices you wanna connect to generate new faces in that area (common practice in max retopo work).
Might be more ways too, but that are the ones I use and are aware of.
It doesn't like N-gons tho so you gotta do it like pic related.
hey /3/ my friend extracted entire runescape map and im thinking about rebuilding it in UE4 with HD textures and lighting. what do you guys think of that idea. its gonna be a pain in the ass tho cuz everything is attacked. im gonna have to detach everything and unwrap everything. trees are god awful so i might get rid of everything and replace it with speedtree trees.
some parts of the city are missing (that or i accidentally passed it. i had to open up over 750 files by hand and figure out what was what.
you guys know any easier way i can quickly check OBJ's? is there like a file viewer or whatever?
what do you guys think of this idea?
>hey /3/ my friend extracted entire runescape map and im thinking about rebuilding it in UE4 with HD textures and lighting
So you're the idea guy.
hi i got an issue with z-brush
the middle mouse button wont zoom in and out on the model, how do i activate that?

3Ds Max, you buggy son of a bitch...
>merge with second
>clone both (copy)
>four objects (obj1 + obj2, obj1clone + obj2clone)
>merge with obj2clone
3Ds Max Fags... help
So I’ve applied a .tga texture to this helmet and now this cancer is hear
never used .tga before was a little scrumpy bitch and used .jpeg
How do I get rid of this white
Messing around with computer graphics. What do you think? Trying to find an art style that is interesting but basic. I have the attention span of a squirrel.
I'm a noob at 3D work, but I'm extremely interested in learning it. So far I've done just a few practice things in blender and maya, but I always hear people talk about zbrush as well. What part does sculpting play in the development cycle? Are you supposed to sculpt a model first, and them export it to a 3D modelling program, or make a model, and then export it to the sculptor?
Blender has a sculpting feature in it. Depends what you want to make. I use it to add damage and wear to models i've already made then I remesh them. You can also completely sculpt a figure in blender then remesh it. Check out some youtube videos,
im trying to mix 2 textures together by Vertex Painting in UE4 but it doesn't let me paint where i like. it just paints in this big ugly patches. similar to when you try to texture something low poly in Zbrush. is there a way to subdivide the floor or whatever so i can go in and paint tiny water puddle, big chunks of dirt and whatever i want?
P.S. side question.
the wall UVs are stretched, is there a way to reset the UVs and fix it up?
vertex paint means you assign a color value to a vertex. Like for blending 2 textures you paint some vertices black and some white,
and the triangle between them are interpolated between the values of their neighbours.
Since it's limited by vertex density It's a very crude type of blending only suitable for special purposes unless you want a really retro type look.
if you want good smooth blending you must use texture instead of vertex paint for your blend mask.
Upping the polycount to a density where vertex paint works well would require retardedly dense meshes.
well how can i paint over the texture itself? because i saw someone do it in a tutorial and he said its "vertex panting" but he was painting freely.
I'm looking for a new render thing, which one is the best between Arnold and Vray ?
VRay, if only because there is an abundance of high quality tutorials out there. Start with some shitty introductory tutorial, mess around for a bit then consider getting Grant Warwick's VRay course - it's the be-all and end-all of VRay courses.
First time finishing an animation.
Ripped model from league of legends (Maokai), retextured and rigged him.
Did some physics simulations, and here i am.
awful animation. His lefet leg and left lower arm dont even move, neither do any of his head tentacles move. Nor do any of his fingers move. Why waste time doing all this retexturing and rigging which is clearly above your skills? Why not just use a free rig?
