Maybe it's been a while and I forgot, but I'm pretty sure that plane wasn't made using 3d design, but drafted by hand. The angles were definitely simulated for radar bounceback, but the shape was because they had to "make it by hand" and complex curves were either hard to simulate or make to the specifications.
Which is why the B2 has all kinds of really smooth curves.
Then again, I could be completely fucking wrong, and I'm mis-remembering things, or just made it up in my head. I swear I heard that shit on Modern Marvels 12+ years ago though.

In hindsight, I guess I kind of just repeated what you said, just in a different way.
>Blender could integrate a cad mode
For true CAD Blender lacks the precision and its polygon engine is completely unfit for CAD in general.
Why don't you try drawing this in your stupid fucking parametric engineering quality drafting software. The work looks like the tool and that's all I'm saying.
Man, all this talk about CAD, I just wanna be able to use NURBS to make cars and sweeping organic surface shit like Max. That shit looks so nice to use for that case. Not nice enough to completely swap over to Max, but enough to get a bit frustrated at the Blender devs for implmenting such an eighth-assed feature (because "half-assed" would be giving them too much credit). They got to the point where they could display NURBS surfaces, and just stopped there. "Yup, that's a wrap people".

Sure you can port the characters but you lose basically all extras that some models come with and also the materials look different.

the only good thread on 3 is wip
based actual 3d chad. holy trinity of software right there.
whilst the modelling tools are lacking in comparison to say 3ds max or blender even, everything else in maya is outstanding.
Obviously its rigging and animation tools are god tier, even more so with plugins.
But apart from that, it's also great at doing UV's, 3d Environment mapping and creation, ect. It has a node mapping workflow, 'everything is open in MEL approach' and implementation with every popular rendering engine almost.
I have a 3D related job and I still pirate everything. I even stole a license from work to make coomer content with. It's not like 3DCG jobs pay well so I will not be spending 10% of my monthly income on it.
>Max is useless in current year.
Please elaborate. I've been casually learning / poking around in Max for the past couple of months.

It doesn't matter if it looks flawless. You'll never be able to satisfy the topology experts on this board.
After the first pass of subdivision it's all quads, so even the apparent 'ngons' one might perceive at the edge of the face don't break any topology laws

>Reminder that AI only threatens laborers. It doesn't threaten the visionaries, i.e. the directors, who are the real artists.
Aka the CEO who will sit in his office speaking prompts into the computer to direct the movie himself
No, the marketing department will be entering in all the prompts. The CEO will just sit back and collect the check from whatever they prompt.
For a heartbeat, the time we go AGI the human expert assisted AGI's will arrive at ASI in notime.
Machines are already demo'ing how they can be 'prompting themselves' much better than we can.
One often cited example is that robotic hand they trained to spin the pencil.


Humans couldn't write the reward function to achieve that level of dexterity despite us being able to conduct the task ourselves.
We trained an AI that wrote the reward function to allow us to get there.

Currently existing technology is already 'super intelligent' compared to us humans in such limited aspects.
The circle of tasks it outperform us in will keep growing until it includes prompt engineering.
The time we're gonna be needed in the loop will be this tiny keyhole moment in history.

if you were tasked with creating a heavily stylized original 2D character in 3D, how exactly would you go about making sense of how the hair should look?

I would leave that place, if those fuckers can't afford a concept artist they deserve to go bankrupt , if that is a school assignment, you're wasting your time there
Definitely on the right track. I wonder what the best way to make the round head look flat might be?
Very interesting. I tried to tackle the lisa hair issue a while back. But I was too inexperienced to make anything work. It's interesting to see what a working hair might look like.

Blener has that, just use sculpting mode and remesh to whatever resolution you need.
Then retopo with quad remesher (sold separately)
we are not talking about remesh, we are talking about non topology workflow, you dont need to remesh in a non topological 3d model
not the same, retopo=topology
non topo workflow doesn't need topology
I'm putting maya in my filters
I'm still a beginner and working on my first model. If topology is placing the vertices and edges, what is non-topo?
Do you use Maya to sculpt? Zbrush?

My projects have become so complicated that I'm starting to get anxiety, fr. I come home from work and I can barely make any progress because its just so complicated. Once I started scripting houdini really hard and reading real pro tips on discord my artistic eye just sort of skyrocketed. Now there is no going back. What do I do now?

What you are describing is like the number 1 problem in all of software development.
The goal of coding can not jus bet to solve a problem, but to also do it in a simple and easily understood way.
If you can not describe the algorithms you use or make in simple terms step by step then you probably haven't simplified enough. Every large problem has to be deconstructed into small and easy problems. It's the only way average intelligence people can achieve complexity.

Post your requests for models/tutorials/software and hope than an Anon will help you out.

Is everything on rutracker is safe to download
Sorry anon. Nothing is really "Safe"
Not too sure if this is the appropriate thread for me to ask in but does anybody know where I can download the CGWorld Magazines? They are magazines that cover CG from different anime series in Japan and it’s a monthly magazine. I have most of them downloaded but not the ones that came out in recent years.

Using bryce 7.1 pro. Problem is every 2d image imported comes out black like this, I've never seen anyone report an issue like this online, followed online tutorials to a tee and still have no success getting the color to show even on default images. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
it was the traceset, I just had to change the missing png file it used
disabling the global light that used the traceset wasnt enough
I'm trying to learn Blender but it seems like all the good, in-depth tutorials past the basic overview of the interface are for fairly old versions of Blender, i.e., HUMAN by Kent Trammell (2.92) and CG Cookie's Fundamentals of X courses (2.8).
Are the differences between 4.0 and these older versions significant enough that it'll handicap me in learning this stuff? I'm a complete newfag at this stuff.
>questions bread instead of /sqt/
Sorry in advance if the question's too retarded. Can't seem to find any answers on this the usual way.

yeah, this is a 3d board, of course we don't. We also don't care
>They'd rather kill you first
No, not really. If you're dead, they can't lord over you. They'd rather you stay alive, chained to their economic infrastructure as a consumer, where they can manipulate you as they please, and occasionally abduct your children to an island.
Thank you anon, great refs.
That GDC talk was amazingly good, probably top 5 I've watched in terms of useful non-obvious information (and I've watched a *lot*)
They have people farms for that
This is all about images as it's what I have experience with
>still can't actual fight scene pictures or just cool action scene pictures or anything remotely complex out of AI
It can do that, but it usually requires using something like latent couple or controlnet to guide the model for more complex scenes, fight scenes usually work out of the box
>AI is still incapable of consistency
Absolutely is if you train a LoRA on the thing you need to look consistent, and then use the LoRA
>this animation shit still looks uncanny as fuck
No comment on that, dunno
>corpos are gonna neuter the fuck out of it and make it worthless anyway
That's why open source models exist, or any local models, even when neutered you can simply finetune it back into being based
