What are /3/'s thoughts on this new GLITCH animation?

Personally, this is some of the most creative modeling and animation I've seen in years

I've been running integrated graphics on my ryzen 5 5600g and I keep getting crashes during renders, I assume the 500mb vram keeps running out or something
anyway I figure I need a GPU, Im looking at either an rx7600, rx6650 xt, a770 if I find a good deal, something like that

curious to hear what you guys are running

I'm the guy you responded to, thanks for providing a legit sounding answer. I suppose the people nostalgic for this are the ones who are maybe half a decade younger than me and this is part of their connection to what then remained of a 'pre-internet' type world.

Obv the internet was already there for them but it was in it's infancy without the social networks, tubesites and smartphones etc.
I guess I understand what they say when talk about how legacy media and games had more 'soul' I'd tend to agree with that statement.
Where I'm lost is when they point to things like 'Frutiger aero' and 'Bryce 3D' type aesthetics as representative of that 'soul'
because to me that would represent the peak 'soul-less' of that era they're reaching back to.

Maybe it's more about having something easily reproducible that's just iconic for the time. Like how ugly juxtaposed neon colors & slalom patterns can invoke certain 80's nostalgia.

>Godot
Missing features and lacks artistic improvement to match with Unreal and Unity
>Blender
All marketing PR talk, no real experience in using Blender. Knows nothing about the real reason.
>Open source
Open source projects doing dumb things like glTF animation implementation, dead software, not documenting important stuff, heavy relaying on Blender instead of other 3D software
>Unity and Unreal
They have a monopoly in 3D games, not a single open source can export to console. Open source projects limits artists like you and me with dumb ideas like TIFF format. Heavy restrictions to Windows only. Dumb downloads for developers like Microsoft Visual Studio. None of that matters with Unity or Unreal.

You're kind of a fucking idiot thinking people dont know Godot is still lacking a lot of tools. His whole video was about going to Godot because it is free and open source like Blender and won't get Jewed like Unity that he was using for the past years. Him taking on Godot and getting people into it is planting seeds in hopes of Godot improving in the future.

You're ignoring a lot of context to make yourself mad.
>>
>>982294
Its rendering, physics (with Jolt) and audio are fine for my requirements.
If a project needs high-end graphics, Unreal is way better. Otherwise, Godot seems perfectly adequate.
It's saved me a ton of time, and has many useful features that an off the shelf render engine wouldn't provide, like file compression/decompression, support for various file formats, networking, graphics tablet support, and surely a lot of other stuff I don't even know about
>>
>>982294
>you might just grab an off the shelf render engine and start from the ground up
quit talking out of your ass, retard
I replaced some of Godot's nodes with a custom system and I still use nodes for anything graphics/audio related because it's a lot of fucking work to replace them and they work just fine.
You have never written anything "from the ground up".

Oh come on that’s a fuck ton of lies, Maya has working Python and working software. Your point of Blender’s freedom doesn’t apply because of the software cheating to create a phantom version of the files. Blender can’t create anything without additional plugins and can’t maintain the level of detail without bugs. Not even the most experienced Blender users can understand bone structure, the dumbest developers decided to never care about such things. It won’t matter how great the project will work in Blender because it doesn’t in real world applications.
>>
>>982470
>Blender can't create anything without additional plugins
This sentence means nothing, its just blank ignorant statement towards a software you dont like/are afraid to learn to use. Provide an example or gtfo
>Bone structure
The way blender handles bones is admittedly stupid because its stubbornly keeps to itself while other even non autodesk software maintain the joint hierarchy structure which autodesk set. 4.2 seems to be headed in the bone hierarchy direction and imo they're easing the users into the more accepted hierarchy structure

This also does not refute my point of letting the modelers use what they want.

Regarding plugins- if youve ever been in a professional environment, you probably realized that most will have custom tools and even modified versions of maya to suit their specific needs. The good thing about blender being open source is that professional programmers could essentially tailor make a complete custom version of the software tailor made for the needs of your pipeline. You cant so this with autodesk products, or you can but its highly limited by the propriety locks.

You’re never getting any fixes for these problems and the blender developers don’t care. Also, you people are trying to make it into CAD capability but failed to even mention how to import and export DAW files or similar software. Blender is not worth anything.

I made product renderings for a client and it went great but now the client is asking for an animation like vid related.

I tried the (newly updated) particle simulation in C4D to try to create a body of liquid and also tried xParticles but both runs like shit on my M1 MacBook. I tried my best to optimize the simulations following multiple tutorials online but I cant get semirealistic results.

Now that I am thinking about it I might be vastly overcomplicating things since I basically just need to raise the product from a plane that somewhat sticks to the object.

Does anyone have an idea for a method I could use to achieve the effect in a much simpler way? I must be missing something.

VFX just means you do it as compositing in a videoediting software. You render out your mesh and a depth pass and inside your video editing software you'd set up layers to blend it all together to make a transition between your CGI and your other layer using your Z-depth.

I work real-time stuff so I haven't touch any videoeditor in years but 'adobe premiere' and 'after effects' was what I used back in the day and it was really easy to just jump in and use those as it's basically a photoshop for videos and I already knew my way around photoshop inside out.

There's probably better suites available, all the VFX tryhards used different software back then too but I can't recall their name.

Need help, I'm relatively new to charactermodeling in blender and ambitiously chose to go for an anime-ish style. I edited the normals to make the lighting more presentable, but to my knowledge you cant edit the normals for individual shapekeys, which sucks because facedeformation messes with the light.
Is there a quick and easy work around for this or do I have to redo my shapekeys manually, but better?
It's supposed to be a game asset at the end of the day.

Cant be exported>? Cant be exported to what? I use custom normals in a unity project and they imported fine
>>
If you're using data transfer in Blender to keep the face normals working through deformations via shape keys, just know that deformations will still break the face normals on export to Unity/Unreal. You'll have to modify the face normals per frame like how CC2/Arc System Works handle it.

Another solution which I've seen used in Hi-Fi Rush and Genshin Impact is to use an SDF texture. You'll have to set up a custom shader in Unity/Unreal but the huge benefit here is that face deformation of any kind won't destroy the normals. Downside is that you're essentially using psuedo lighting. It's not 'real' but it doesn't matter.

Is lowpoly handpainted still a thing? Is blizzard still hiring tons of artists for WoW assets? What do you guys think of my ancient tome?
>>
Low poly 3D is currently trending. But the texture work is typically low resolution as well, in order to simulated early 3D graphics like the Playstation 1 and 2. I think high resolution painted textures look better than low res pixelated textures. But I personally find the WoW style appalling to look at. I'm more of a Wind Waker kind of guy.

I don't know what Blizzard is doing. But some of my favorite indie games could have benefited from better texture work. Like a Hat in Time would benefit from higher quality textures. Maybe knock on some doors in the indie space to see if they have work?

Tome looks cool.

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:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=evOpfRkZjDM
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!
>>
>>982063
make a few pics from different yet close camera angles and pretty much most 3d software will turn it into a cgi scene
>how
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.
