What's the secret of the realistic looking CoD reload animations? No other game has reached such fidelity in the reloads animation area. Do they have animators dedicated just to viewmodel reloads that spend months on a single weapon? Do they use some sort of procedural magic?

>>971962
Looking at some footage from Modern Warfare 2 on youtube it doesn't look like anything super tricky. It's just an animator who understand the subject material.
At a studio like infinity or whoever makes them now you also have access to great source material, you usually even have physical weapon props on site you can manipulate.

Personally I feel confident I could replicate the look of anything I see here within a day or two per gun.
Doing full body acrobatic animations I usually manage about ~10-15 seconds of really high quality movement in a full workday (16h window).

By comparison having hands move around in front of your face doing a few hand movements isn't as much of a challenge. If anything I'd complain a lot of the motion in CoD appears
too weightless, like the Desert Eagle changes direction and comes to a stop absolutely instantly like it's a plastic toy gun, those are hefty objects.
I've held one of those and it rivals the mass of our service rifle, thing must weight at least 2 kilos. You don't flick around something like that and have it translate around
the wrist with no ease-in-out to it.

Even if you're a built operative you'd twist it around it's own center of mass while the inertia of the mass of the gun frame would wanna trace it's own arc.
Revolver looks a lot better tho. What happened is they prob didn't have a deagle on hand and winged it off a Glock or something but they did have a heavy revolver to record.

Play Tarkov and try shooting/reloading real guns, retard.

>>971962
It's motion capture. They get a guy in a suit to reload the gun and then they move the camera angle.
>>
>>972149
I doubt it is. Mocap is best for fullbody animation but it's a bitch to work with when you need a precise, perfectly timed animation that has multiple variations. Maybe they record some mocap for reference but the animation itself is all manual work.

I've tried to figure a way out to do it procedurally over the years. One trick is using gabor noise with a flow field, but IIRC, it gets fucked by interpolation problems and doesn't have a way to place pores correctly. Another is to implement reaction-diffusion for curved surfaces either in python or nodes, but then that requires an expensive simulation over a high poly mesh. Gonna try voronoi scattering sometime with a flow field to see if that might work - the trick will be making the rotation of each voronoi cell depend on a single central point and praying that the interpolation errors at the boundaries aren't overly visible. Any sizefags who want to collaborate on doing this kind of ultra-detailed procedural modelling, please give a shout.

Anyone here into photogrammetry? I'm slowly learning 3d modeling but I'm curious if photogrammetry is ever really used in any professional works? I know people scan faces all the time but I'm not really familiar with it. Only time I remember someone really using it was this autist for one of his vids:
https://youtu.be/0ttg_ULqLX8?si=D9hEAZ5fw8Kt12th&t=1166
timestamp should work at 19:26. But that's it. Feel free to use this thread to talk about anything related to the scanning itself or working on models afterwards, I'm also curious about that.

>costs like 20/month.
LMFAO. It is free for android however gives like 6 free photos.

Polycam is 100% ass. The geometry gets fucked up and is warked. You can not move from the spot you stand in only rotate and the geometry is fucked.

Not usable for anything other then Abstract art or scaning the room you are in in 3 minutes.
>>
>>968285
>Get a 300$ 3d scanner instead.
This all of this.
Photogrametry is shot because it tries to work with photos.
Most 3D scaners use more like Structured light or depth sensors.
Photogrametry is a TOY
>>
>>968337
3d scanets are infinetly more useful then 3d printers.

One is a tool that can bring physical models into the computer.
The other is a retarded toy that poisons you and can only spit out TOXIC plastic crap CnC is superior to 3 d printing for all civilian cases
>>
>>970724
LOL.
All 3d scaning is limited.
There are angels these scaners can never scan.

Also do you seriously think you are going to sculpt all your characters in real clay before scaning them?

I tried the free version in a museum and was able to get decent models of the works without a ton of effort. Might work a bit better on iOS with its proper camera software.

This thing absolutely shreds SD in terms of speed on my rig.

Probably an adobe faggot.

I used it for 30 minutes easy to notice that it executes complex materials at 4k on a tiny budget faster than SD. Didn't try much though, just clicked through materials and tried blur nodes. Tried the painting template project.

Fuck adobe

Need someone who can make organic landscapes in ue/blender/maya or whatever other program you fancy and get paid for it!

I'm working with a friend to make a 2.5d top-down hentai zelda-like action. We're just stating with a demo that will go from the start of the game until the end of the fist dungeon, we somehow have gathered a pretty skilled little rag tag team but I'd like to find someone who can do landscapes exceptionally well.

Right now we literally just need the ground itself. After the demo we're hoping to put it up on social media to get some support so we can quit our day jobs and work full time until the game is finished.

If thd game takes off we'd 100% have a ton more work for you to do and paid hourly or salary depending on if we get enough funding. We just wanna make a fun game that's also horny.

If you are interested shoot me an email at vagranttale@gmail.com! Thr project is moving astonishingly fast!

download visual studio & install allegro
https://liballeg.org/
It's an ancient game programming library but is rather simplistic so very nice to learn. It does 2D graphics, audio, video and cross platform window management
It's in c++ which is an ideal first language and it doesn't come with all the bloated abstraction that unity & unreal have.

If I were you I would start with UE5 and blueprints even if 4chin doesn't like it

>>971828 and >>971835 are both good advice.
I'm partial because because I've been using Allegro since version 2 (I think) in '96 (or was it '97) on my 486 PC even before I discovered GNU/Linux and I'm still using Allegro 5 today.
But if you're not up to learn C and your computer can run it, then go with UE.

This is really stupid advice, you aren't gonna get anywhere trying to build everything from scratch, take advantage of the tools available and use hired help for the rest

Other people already can do everything, just pay them to borrow their skills and you focus on the actual gameplay and polish

I'm too lazy to learn how to animate the plop plop shit, so I'm trying to transfer TS4 rigs onto other 3D models so I can just use WW animations. My workflow right now is just moving the bones in edit mode to the new body, which sort of works, but is inefficient. I also need to transfer the weights and that can lead to some problems, too.

This is all for "personal use", so I don't give a shit about the legality of it or finding a way to somehow make money off of it.
