Hello 3DCG, i'd appreciate some help learning about 3D, specifically animation. i don't know much yet, but i'm trying to learn and i had 2 questions. thank you

there was this app I remember which converted footage into 3D rendered environments. i'm not looking for quality or anything professional, i just want to quickly convert images into these low poly, weird 3D like pic rel

pic came from this video:
check it out, it has that distorted, low quality, low polygon look i'm trying to recreate. and if i'm not mistaken they used that app. any recommendations are welcome

i'd also like to know which programs experts here recommend to beginners getting into 3D, specifically animation. i read the sticky and it seems to be more oriented towards modeling. so as a beginner looking primarily to composite scenes, import low poly models, some light character animation & do some basic camera work, which program would you recommend? maybe some underground, lesser known, older programs that you see people rarely mention? i'm open to anything, i played around with Bryce 3D and it's pretty incredible

thank you!
make a few pics from different yet close camera angles and pretty much most 3d software will turn it into a cgi scene
idk, but it is there, so learn it
the video you've linked is the result of bad photogrammetry - there are a bunch of different applications out there that perform similarly
if you don't give too much of a fuck and are diy (you seem like the type), you should look at phone apps that will get you results like that straight from your phone - again, the word you're looking for is photogrammetry - usually people try for high quality results, but if your settings are low you'll get results like the ones you want

you should just use blender as your dcc for now (it won't do the photogrammetry, you'll need to do that somewhere else and import the files in), you can get results like your vid pretty easily. plenty of resources out there. you might be tempted to learn some hipster shit and yeah that's fun, but you won't go far in /3/ without solid foundations. do the boring normie stuff first.
"photogrammetry" that's extremely useful in my search, thank you!

how do we feel about a double outline.
I think when it works, it works. In your case, I don't really think it does. I'm not really sure what it's adding to the model except making the outline more visible. Maybe if it was a solid black outline, plus a white outline that moved like a scribble, then it could be interesting.
Threw nead
There are multiple ways to go about it (curves being one) but I would get the shape of the inner frame blocked out with planes, make the curvature look good, then solidify them outwards. Then you can add bevels and stuff between the solidified edges without worrying about the shape.
Hey bro can you send this model? I need it for very important non-sexual purposes.

There's nothing strange about that at all.
The middle ground is the area where you're kind of just expected to know what you're doing.
Beginner shit is for beginners, pro level shit is mostly theory and workflow shit to augment and enhance what you're already doing. The in-between is that "just right" section where you're not a beginner, and you know how to model well enough to get by without much help. In the case you do need help, it's usually enough to just check how other people have solved similar problems. Then you slowly just shift into that "pro level" theory territory where it's all about optimizing your workflow, or seeing new tricks to model things in a different way.

It's like riding a bike.
There's that wobbly stage where you're just starting out on 2 wheels and you're not all that skilled and can still fall over.
The middle point where you can clearly ride a bike, people expect you to know how to ride a bike, and you have confidence riding a bike.
Then that final stage where you achieve complete mastery over normal riding and you start doing BMX tricks and shit.
Maya is for professionals only, you should already know what you're doing when using Maya.

But I can use Blender somewhat, so I just make models from schematics
I was also thinking of remaking art by actually creative and artistic people in 3D, or replicating video game scenes.
Anyone else like this?
14 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Replicating things that already exist (from reference) is extremely common and has been for thousands of years. Everyone does it and you should too. Make shit that you enjoy or enjoy the process of making.

If you want to be more creative try stepping out of your comfort zone more. Experiment and remix when making things. You will fuck up, but think critically about it and you can learn. If depression is getting in the way get some exercise and sunlight.
your modelling talent is required to preserve old art. starts making 3D models of those cultures that are unexposed that aren't Western or Eastern.
I'm in the same boat over here with my aphantasia. For creative outlet I just love modifying things, since I can see shortcomings or missing pieces, but not create anything from scratch.
On the other hand, if you WANT to create things without imagination,unironically use Dall-E 3 to generate shit (there is an outpour of threads on /v/ for AI generation currently, if you don't have any idea how to prompt). It will create the rough outline of an item/character/place, provide some details and you can make the thing take shape in 3D software (something I considered once I saw some outputs of mine and thought the contents were a cool idea).
See what art you like and make your own referencing the original, but not copying it. To be creative, you have to be ''random'' (Just like a child looking at the clouds and see a king doing backflip with a mage's skateboard).

If you do models, take inspirations from the media that you like, maybe even mash with other things.

This shit only works with people with schizophrenia and I am not joking. Even more so the part of drugs. When you have a job to do, you have to force yourself to do art. Not all people are the same and can hear the squirrels dancing with a cat in the tree
>Anyone else like this?

So....that big AI image or video to 3d mesh never materialized, did it? Its mid april. We should all be free of modelling by now. All this big AI talk, but nothing delivered. No image to model, no video to model, no ai texure, no ai uv, and github copilot stinks on ice.

There's this project that applies the ideas of noise/diffusion based image generation, like stable diffusion and combines it with gaussian splatting.

The results are pretty good for what is essentially first gen. It even has browser based demo. https://gsgen3d.github.io/ if you can use this to generate a mesh, you could then use another program to retopo, and use image based ai to generate extra maps, or change texture styles.

It wouldn't surprise me if some dev starts using this kind of workflow for background assets in the next 5 or so years. Especially with nanite allowing unnecessary details.

Things like the fruits in a fruit stand in the next elder scrolls game, which is probably still run a gamebryo derivative...
AI will temporarily die the moment someone wins a trademark case. AI will have to be retrained with data that is not trademarked eventually
Not a single strike won because AI training on copyrighted data is legal and will remain legal. And what do you do when AI is trained on AI that is trained on copyrighted data? This shit should have sorted out in 2022 and the fact that it didnt fudge even an inch is sign that it will remain that way forever.
>And what do you do when AI is trained on AI that is trained on copyrighted data?
ChatGPT and other AI networks already degraded because it's a cycle of shit, this doesn't work.
Honestly, "AI" (if you really can even remotely call it that) has peaked. There won't be any significant "game-changer" improvements in any capacity for a long time. Fundamentally, AI research the way it is now is pretty flawed and there's always going to be an upper limit of what's capable. Which we're pretty close to reaching. As they are now, all the computing power in the world won't make them smarter or more robust, just train them faster. Even training has diminishing returns, since training something too much ends up making it shit.

AI is going to be stuck in "toyland" for a good while. Don't get me wrong, it's useful as it is, and there's certain applications that are really cool, but it'll never become a "real boy" like Pinocchio. The AI shit that seems like straight up magic won't happen for a really really long time. We'd need a significant breakthrough in computing and creating neural nets for something like that. Like we'd need a literal cyberbrain first.

So yeah, in a sense "AI" is already dead. Or rather it hasn't even begun yet. What we have now is just a pale imitation of it by techbros. Neat and useful? Absolutely. But we're a long way off from something that'd really change the game enough to actually warrant fundamental policy change. Policy makers will probably do shit because they're old retards that don't know how tech works, but it's not really worth it at this stage. Image/video generation aren't something that'll shake the world to its core.

blender idiot here

I'm making a model for a vrchat avatar and for some reason some bones are moving around on their own after I export as an FBX then reimport. I've searched all over the internet for a solution and a lot of the threads on various websites talk about animations and making sure that the armature is set to the correct frame of the animation, but I've never touched any of that. I may have fatfingered some hotkey during the whole process, but I have no idea if this is a bug or if I'm just retarded. I've applied all the scales and rotations etc too, so I don't think it's that.

I have zero issue?

I opened the clean .blend exported just the base mesh with the stuff with bones and armature and re-imported it.
if you mean the bone length that doesn't mean anything.

FBX doesn't keep the length of the bones, so blender just guesses the size you can click the armature, go to edit mode hit A to select all then S to scale, then G to move it, then go back to object mode Ctrl + A Apply All Transforms.

You really need to work on communicating your issues.

as when you say the bones are moving that could be anything.

Finally you don't need to export out of blender until your done editing? why would you export if you haven't finished?
or you can just export just the mesh and just parent it to the armature that's already there if you prefer the look of it its a hassle tho



This vid will burn after 2 days.

But shows you a quick way to export and re-import the mesh and then re-use the armature that's in the base blend.

But I think your been a Grade SS+ Autistic as you don't have any reason to export out and back into blender.

Past this video I'm done here.

Fuckin lazy.
bottom of the beard is just photoshop clip tooled out. At the chin area you can see he tried to keep some of the feathering in the beard but the left side is just completely smooth lol looks like a bad edit that's why.
Because this is rushed and done poorly by a gay Yootoober CG grifter/imposter/indiefag and not a genuine industry graphics team.

Shocking, I know.

Why do we have to go through a pointless process as westerners while nips get a freepass?
they just 3d paint their textures and the uv can be any crazy nonsense as long as it's optimized.
You're most likely looking at a ripped model that some poor soul had to piece together themselves after ripping it.

japs often use anime cartoon shading
the texture is essentially just an atlas
with various color gradients and some small details
but there are examples of them doing outstanding UVs e.g. FF XII
Because it doesn't fucking matter if you actually put soul into it and not just revert to kike PBR slop

Redpill me on AM and other similar programs. Do you get anything out of it that you wouldn't be able to learn on your own? Are you actually just buying connections? Have you done it? what did you think? I can already guess that the general opinion here will be pretty negative but I'm interested to hear your insights.

Andrew, how many times do I have to remind you that you're not welcome on this board?
Officially from Maya and they work unlike Blender that removed buttons and stored it away.
What do yall think of something like https://www.toanimate.ca/
$500 for courses, rigs, props, scenes, professional feedback + discord
>Red flags
Only blender, discord (anything commercial tie with discord is bound to be a scam), if I’m read the jump reference right, it’s asking you for a perfect 90 degree? Let me tell you; people hate perfect things, walk cycle for bot is bad, it’s just a by product of https://teachable.com and no actual professional.

It’s a scam anon.
what courses/books would you recommend?

So I wanted to specialize in Maya but I see a lot of tutorials in blender and 3ds max too, I would like to learn blender and 3ds max too is it coherent using three modeling package?
if you're just starting out it's not a good idea to try and learn multiple packages that do similar things.

what do you actually want to do?
3D modeler/generalist
i'd recommend blender or 3ds max, cuz modifiers make your life easier, maya isn't bad but without plugins, its modeling pipeline is destructive.
if you have industry ambitions
for film: maya
for aaa games: maya / max / some blender
for indie games: blender
for archviz: max / blender

this is assuming you actually want to be a modeller which is a very, very specific thing in some pipelines. most modelling skills are transferable b/w dcc's and it takes a couple of weeks to adapt.

if you want to be a generalist you need imo:
blender / maya
substance painter
houdini (after 1.5/2 years of the others)
experience with at least 2 renderers ( so you can realise they're all pretty similar)

Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Would recommend you to try all, and see what software “clicks”. In my case, it was Max (for modelling) and Cinema (for VFX).

Regarding modelling: methods that you learn on YouTube are software-agnostic, and you can follow it on the software you like.
