Still looking for rigged mannequins I can use to pose and display people to then use as templates to draw over.
1. where can I get a good asset for blender that is already rigged and allows me to put them into any number of positions?
2. Should I draw in blender or just stick with krita?
3. No I am not looking for plugins like MLab or something to create photorealistic models, just a single asset with roughly correct proportions i can download and put into blender

So Blender hired this week the Cuban that made the Dyntopo mode 200 years ago to work in the sculpt mode and the mac version, he has worked on 3d coat and Zbrush too, Farsthary.

>>

>BlenderGIS
You're trying to use a lazily maintained addon that got updated last almost two years ago and a lot has changed under the hood of Blender with version 4.0.
If you want to keep using it you need to keep using your old version of Blender or get someone to fix its incompatibility with 4.x for you.
>>
>>973909
Yeah, I just downloaded 3.6.8 and the addon works like it used to. thanks
>>
>>973912
Hey no prob

Is there a way to change which direction Blender thinks is the front? I want it to be positive X because it makes the most sense.
>>
>>973928
A took a quick look, but nah, I don't think so.
Personally, don't think +X being the front makes any kind of sense at all. +Y is forward, -Y is back. It'll save you a fuckload of troubleshooting down the line when you start fucking around with objects on paths.

starting to sculpt within blender, but I'm wondering if there's another piece of software similar to these videos that allows me to use booleans to carve out shapes using another shape, and sort of 'stamp' shapes down
I know you can use booleans and metaballs in blender, but it's not quite as fast as this
also, the way you can get a basic form, stretch it out and curve it very quickly is pretty appealing, but the piece of shit is annoyingly limited to the PS4

Looked more like a 3d printing thread, going by the OP image. Figured the "smoothing" was more about smoothing Resin/PLA prints, rather than making smooth CG objects.

Hey dudes, I'm doing something retarded and I'm trying to "convert" (using that term very loosely) some Adobe Camera Raw presets to Blender's compositor.
90% of it is pretty self explanatory and have a parallel, RGB curves to RGB Curves node, HSL Mixer to the Hue Correct node, that's like most of the heavy lifting.
Whether or not the numbers match up is another story. The story is, that they don't.

Pic related though are two sections that I can't really find a good parallel for.
Notably the "Highlights, Shadows, Whites, Blacks" in the basic, and all the sliders in the "Calibration" section.
For the first few, I thought the "Color Correction" node would be the analog, but I don't think so now, as it doesn't really do the same thing at all. I've tried searching it up to see if anyone has tried it, but all I get are PS tutorials by Indians and stuff.
For the second one with the RGB primaries, I don't think there's a node that handles it, but I think I can pull something by separating the RGB, and adjusting that way.

I guess if the math is available for the highlights/shadows stuff, I might be able to hack something together though if there's not a node that does that.

Alright, a little progress on this, but somehow I've dug myself into a hole. The biggest factor in how the CR presets look is down to the RGB curves (what a surprise). Meaning all the extra shit is pretty much a non issue.
Apparently curve adjusters aren't built equal, though, even when you use the exact same settings/curves.

Pic related is a comparison between Adobe Camera Raw's curves (which I'm trying to "port" over to Blender's), Photoshop's curves adjustment layer, and finally, Blender's RGB curves. All three are the same image, sRGB with no transforms.
As you can see, they're all different. Even within Photoshop their own curve adjusters are completely different in both CR and the adj. layer. As you can see, the curves are the exact same, and the histograms (between CR and PS) are pretty similar.

What I don't fucking get, is why the fuck Blender is so different. It's a fucking mystery that I have no clue how to solve. It's as if its curves act fundamentally different to how it works in literally everything else. I've found a few posts online of people saying the same thing, but all the replies are essentially "no u".

Anyone know what the fuck is going on here? Like at worse, I had expected it to look like PS's curves, "close but not quite there". Not what I'm seeing now.
>>
>>974503
And yes, I've tried using the standard and filmic settings on Blender's RGB curves (filmic looks like shit in this case). I also converted PS's curve values by dividing them by 255, to fit into Blender's retarded 0-1 value system for the curves.
If I figure this shit out, it shouldn't be too hard to write some script or something to import the presets into Blender's compositor. I've got a fuckload of VSCO presets that'd be nifty to just drag in via the asset browser.

tried making a curved border around this organic looking shape but can't figure out a proper way of doing it
my method for this was:
>set cursor to point on mesh
>create plane
>merge verts into a single vertice
>turn on face snapping
>extrude vertice all around the object
>convert to curve
>add depth
>convert back to mesh
feels like a pretty retarded and needlessly complex way of doing something so simple

>select edges

works perfectly. also give me one reason why I shouldn't model everything using subdivision surface and the cage option
the topology is always seemingly perfect and I have no intention to rig, animate or do anything to it outside of blender, and texturing will be a piece of piss since I'll be using a procedural clay shader

Does anyone know how to achieve this effect but with my character's skin instead of a balloon? Basically I want the skin to deform when interacting with another object.

>>974680
soft body simulation/cloth simulation with internal springs
use a lower res mesh for the simulation and mesh deform / surface deform on modifier on the mesh that should have the effect.
shrinkwrap (project) and corrective smooth (bind) also works
Neither are a perfect solution, in theory someone could figure something out with geometry nodes

>use a lower res mesh for the simulation and mesh deform / surface deform on modifier on the mesh that should have the effect.
>shrinkwrap (project) and corrective smooth (bind) also works
thanks for the answer. Could you elaborate on those two methods? Which modifiers do I have to put on my character and which on the object that interacts with it? I'm a noob when it comes to character animation with rigs
>>
Got a specific simple task Ive gotta do, but no idea how to do it in "the best" way. There is 2 identical objects, but they have different location and rotation, already applied. I need for the second boject to match these of the first object, what do? IVe tried shrinkwrap, but it tends to fuck up internal geo. And it has internal geo. No, its not high poly modeled vagina.
>>
>>974783
If they are identical, what property of the duplicate object would you lose by just creating a copy of the object which is in the correct orientation already?
If there are some modifiers or animation keys you don't want to lose, you could copy the in-position object, then ctrl+j that copy to the duplicate object, then delete all the vertices except the ones you just joined.
>>
What's the fucking point when AI can do all of this shit. It's over.
>>
>>974787
One object is a "combination" of a few different objects, the other has 1 material, with new UVs
>>
>>974791
I'm sure a blender expert knows some more correct way, but here are my thoughts.

You can get it in the correct position by picking a recognizable vertex, selecting all the verts with that vertex active (by deselecting+reselecting it or w/e) and than enabling snap to vertex with Snap With set to Active.
Then you can snap the 3d cursor to that vertex, set the 3d cursor as the pivot, and rotate it to the correct orientation (almost) with regular and trackball rotation.
Once it's close enough, maybe your shrinkwrap will work okay.

You could also figure it out mathematically/write a script, but that seems unnecessarily complex.
As an example, once you have the translation correct using your first reference vert, you can pick another vertex and figure out how to rotate so that it would be in the correct position. Then you have two fixed points which define a line of rotation. You can pick a third reference point and rotate around that line to get the final exact orientation.
>>
>>974793
Yeah, thats pretty much what Ive been doing, hope there is some better way. Thanks anyway, gues I just gotta grind
>>
>>974794
might be able to do something fancy with the data transfer modifier if you just need the uvs
>>
>>974796
Isnt it usually need objects to be in same-ish position?
>>
>>974797
I tried this with a couple of suzannes and it worked despite different orientations and locations
https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/2.80/editors/uv/layout_management.html#transferring-uv-maps
>>
>>974788
Might as well off yourself if you're so scared of AI and can't think of a good reason why people who like making things are making things.
Frozen pizzas made by machines in a factory didn't make pizza places that make it from scratch obsolete.

You're just looking for an excuse to quit because you never actually did shit in the first place. You were always mediocre, but you'll blame AI as an easy scapegoat as to why you could never "make it".
>>
>>974515
>Blender used to have better performance before the 2.8 and the new viewport.
Objectively untrue.
Blender's performance went to shit for a short while when 2.8 happened but since then they rebounded and it's WAY faster now.
