Also think of it this way:
PSX-N64 games have smaller texture maps that are only 16 or 32 pixels wide, so cleaner details from an animu style like ToF will look a lot nicer than realism. You don't need to draw individual strands of hair.

As we all know, Nvidia's finally brought their RTX cards out of the dark and we're starting to see people publish performance metrics about them. The 2080's basically a 1080Ti, and the 2080Ti's almost hitting that fabled 4k60 at a bank-breaking pricetag.

So, let's restart the conversation.
Of course, since this is /3/, it'll be 3DCG-related:

Do you see the current implementation of RTX as a gimmick or could it be the start of a new era? Do you think we'll ever get to the day of genuine real-time path-tracing?

When Unreal (or whatever real-time engine of your choice) gets RTX support, will it even be worth it rendering in a dedicated path-tracing engine anymore? Unless your scene has to handle translucent materials, glass and/or realistic volumetrics, there's really not going to be much point, is there?

How do you feel about the mass of gamers not understanding the significance of RTRT tech and dismissing it as Nvidia attempting to scam consumers? Are they right, or are they fools?

That is a stupid statement, and sounds like advertising. Inclusive the implied reverse association of becoming a better artist by using this product.
Fuck yourself you stupid shill.
>>
>>643057
That's dumb and misinformed. Everyone knows 4x1070 has been the best bang for the buck for years. Even Redshift official docs still recommend this card. Until RT features are implemented the 1070 is still champion.
>>
>>643047
for that reason alone I have a feeling they may lock that feature out to not eat into quadro rtx 5000 sales. I could be really wrong though, maybe those workstation cards have more up their sleeve than anything I know about.

This isn't even using the RTX cores. Nothing has them implemented yet, you need to implement the new Optix API to make use of the RTX cores. Redshift will have it in version 3.0, Octane is "Coming soon".

Arnold apparently has it in their internal test but that thing is never going to release so who care.

The stability on 3Ds Max depends on what you are working on. For regular modeling you are completely fine, but if you want to rig or aninate it crashes quite often, at least it was like that from the 2016 version to the 2018 version
>>
>>643135
Because Autodick doesn't give a fuck abut 3ds anymore. It used to be a damn fine tool, but now every time I use it I can hear the underlying architecture squeak and
creak as they just tack on more stupid half-assed features.
>>
What was the last good 3dsmax version? I think the one that I liked before it went super buggy was either 2010 or 2011. Graphite modelling tools was a good feature that was badly needed, but a lot of things since seem to got bugged.

And to clarify on poor wording before you nitpick that... No. Raytracing will never be faster than rasterization. But who cares if they both render before the computer is even calling for the next frame.
>>
>>640060
>Method B will be "just as fast"
>>640061
>No. Raytracing will never be faster than rasterization
You are underestimated how the methods scale.

Blender, well known app here in /3/, Is moving to a rasterizer because of how slow ray tracing is.


>>640060
>See now, that's a good point.
I explained many other including the noise issue.
I also noted the issues with scene. The entire scene must be loaded into memory.
When does Tessellation occur? Or do you attempt to use NURBS? Can they be dynamic? How do you store them in optimal manner? Tessellate them?
How deep do you traverse the BVH tree before you are certain there is no light source?

(You) have lost it, anon.
No, I don't want raytracing to be used for everything. I don't even use raytracing. At this point I've mostly just been amused with how retarded you are and wanted to keep it going.
I don't know that much about raytracing, I'll be honest, but debate (yes, this is a debate) opens your mind to new ideas and you learn things you didn't know before.
The only thing I'm sad to say is that I might have actually learned something from your dumb ass.
Feel free to mark this as a win for your "Someone is wrong on the internet" card.

That's not what Blender devs are doing, and, anyway, nobody cares about what they do.

There are a lot of tutorials, software and plugins there, so much so that some great stuff can be missed just because of the number of (continuous) releases on the site.

Two things:
1. There's Blender tuts/plug ins on CGPeers. So if anything, it's the true Blenderfag, not OP.
2. It's better at pirating Maya, Z-Brush or Adobe Products than Pirate Bay or other such sites.

Which CAD modeling software has the best modeling tools and environment? I mean actual complex modeling. not just gears and pipes and shit.

>Rhino (shit tier outdated GUI, no real overview of the tools or what they do, but has grasshopper, which is great)
>Solidworks (better GUI than Rhino)
>Fusion360 (great GUI, but lacks easy translation, lacks even Maya tier translate snapping, tools are too limited)
>Alias whichever version (outdated, convoluted)
>etc.

I took a class in modeling and they used Rhino. It is really handy being able to type out your commands. I tried jumping into blender but realized I don't wantto learn a completely new software. Are there any setbacks with rhino aside from is ui?
>>
the trick to surfacing for the most part is streamlining your workflow by shortcutting and hotkeying every function in the software such that you never need to actually fuck with the interfaces, as in my experience they are all terrible and i dont know why. some charge up to 70k a seat, no reason they cant invest in some better ui and tools.

anyways, hotkey everything, sometimes multiple hotkeys for the same function but with different tolerance presets. get that done and you will be absolutely flying through surface in seconds.

i dont have any experience in solidworks or fusion, but i have used catia v5 and alias. alias was extremely lightweight in my opinion, but didnt have a lot of bells and whistles, so if that sounds like what you want, it will get the job done. catia has incredible history and saves a lot of time in the long term on a build by being able to update when you adjust perameters in the history, but it trades this for a more clunky (again, my opinion) interface and workflow upfront. also, just a heads up, importing surface into alias from just about anything else will give you super ugly garbeldy gook surface with hundreds of spans and shit fucked up under the hood of the surface. make sure to watch out for this if you do that, especially when receiving data from a client as you dont know what softwares they put it through before giving it to you.

i've heard from other people that fusion is an absolute joy to use by comparison, and is more user friendly than just about any other surfacing softwares. again, no personal experience, this is just what i have heard. a lot of my 3d printing buddies use it and really talk it up
