As always, I have a question about Unreal, so I might as well open a general again so the thread doesn't become pointless if the question is answered.

I have an already existing scene built in Blender, and I'm trying to find a way I can export the whole scene to Unreal. I don't want to just export a bunch of individual objects that I'd have to place manually again, because the scenes need to match 1 to 1 in both programs.

I've tested out new Send to Unreal blender addon:


But from what I see, it only exports individual assets + I'm not sure it even supports collections so it just exports everything into one messy folder.

I though that maybe I could parent everything in a scene to 1 object and import that, but idk if I misunderstood it, but this means the lightmap will be shared across the entire group? I got an error when trying to bake lighting.

Another idea I had was to just export everything individually, but with pivots at the world center, so when I drop them in the scene at (0,0,0) the objects will keep their world space. Maybe that could work, but I'm not sure if that's a good approach.

Ideally, you would have a live link where the whole scene updates in Unreal automatically, so if I modify an object or change its position, it will be updated in Unreal. That means I wouldn't have to keep importing new version again and again.

Any ideas?

Hello, faggot here calling for help, last month i reset my laptop, I made backups of my main files, I was learning 3dsmax and I had a file almost finished, but when it was reset its lost, i recovered the file but only the .scene, so now it dont open,
someone who knows how to retrieve the file from a scene?

What do you mean with .scene? File format?

As you probably know max uses .max as file format.

Try copying and renaming to .max alternatively upload the file or go to autodesks forums.

1. You can't make selections through culled backface geometry
2. You can't use absolute units when scaling/extruding/insetting
3. You can't do proper edge offsetting without an add-on
4. You can't easily add a vertex to an existing edge (come on, I have to be wrong about this one)
5. You can't make a global material (non object-specific)
6. You can't enable backface culling in render preview

One month into dicking around with this pos, and I'm fucking angery. I'm hoping any of you can correct me on any of these points.

Also, gladly taking recs for a modeling solution geared towards hard surface and architecture that works well with substance designer material exports. Don't care if its not free as I'm tired of this freebie pajeet-tier spaghetti coded open source shit, I wanna program made by a white man.

Yet, despite these shortcomings, people use Blender everyday to create their art. Whether or not you think that art is good or valid is irrelevant.

If you are doing anything but animation you can store everything in USD file format and you are DCC independent. Pixar has already freed up that path by creating this open standard.

Stuff like that is very promising, but nothing is a substitute for the real thing.

3ds MAX is an essential tool for me.
That´s why i pirate it.
My pirate version is functional, does everything i need it to do and i have NO need to go "online officially" with Autodesk for ANY reason.
Worse case, i´d get an older version of the damn thing, until it worked.
There are older versions with large packages of plugins that makes them capable of doing things that the modern versions can´t... sigh, i miss those so much.
They want us to pay for it, they will have to work their butts for REAL.
Also, what´s that ridiculously broken animation on their website?

idk how you'd judge F360 'progress'
It's an extremely functional tool for design and fabrication, and that's about it.

Only meters I'd judge it from is "Does the simulation provide me good information for iteratively improving my design?" or "Can I use this design to fabricate a functional part?".
Neither of which are presented in your pic

Some dude replicating PS1 era graphics poped up in my YouTube recommendations yesterday. I know it's not the same, but close enough. Give me few seconds and maybe I'll find him.
Anyway, the textures itself are first of all lower resolution without filtering. They usually used real life photos, placed in Photoshop to fit the UVs.
Back then they were using only albedo maps. Friend of mine was working in the game industry back then, I might ask him as well.
But that's all I know,

There's a dude who posts here occasionally, Jack, who makes trippy vids with low res textures and shit. They're really good in a weird way.

In any case, he was kind enough to share his entire texture library with everyone. It's all low-res stuff that should be perfect for you.


He goes for a PS1 style, but honestly, there's probably no difference in the textures they used on the PS1 or PS2. It's just that you can see them better. Still, it might be a good jumping off point.

I made a tool in unity and am wondering if its good enough to put on a tools reel to apply to studios. I can record tracking data from any type of tracker (hand keyed, head tracked, eye track) and then playback and use that stored data to do things like vertically scroll the final image to fit a 4k video onto dual 1080p monitors or just see what was being focused on at a particular moment, which is useful for many things. Look at the cube moving showing the recorded tracking and the dynamic scrolling of the video. I have been working on this project for 1 month, learning unity and c#

Anyone? Any feedback?

>> No.760991

It's a slow board, you don't need to bump. In my opinion, I'd say no, it's not ready. It's got a bad case of programmer design. That is to say that it both looks ugly and unintuitive. I couldn't tell what half of those buttons on the menu were, and I'm still not entirely sure what the function or utility of the tool actually is.

I don't want you to explain it to me here either. My point is if you're trying to get someone to look at this, and they're busy, you only get maybe 30 to 60 seconds to get the point across and I think you failed to do that.

Keep going though, either with a redesign or more tools, everyone could always use more independently developed and specific tools. Also consider a store front or something in the event that you don't find a studio to take it off of you, or at least a demo so an interested studio could test it or something. Good luck.

if you are someone that needs to see that high level of a detail for whatever reason, you would have the budget to afford a screen capable of doing whatever the fuck you needed it to do.

This is the video editing equivalent of putting a spoiler on a honda civic... just buy the racecar, and if you can't afford one or find someone who thinks you're good enough to race theirs, then you don't need it to begin with.

I have been very curious about 3D animation for a while now. I loved the cute style of older games like Ape Escape and newer pixel art like sculptures/animations like like https://youtu.be/KpxzUd0r9Rk

I want to be able to learn what it takes to replicate art like this. Now all I got is a mouse and a pretty beefy laptop so im all I need is any experienced anons out there that could spoonfeed some good learning resources. Like on skillshare or a anon approved video series i could follow, maybe even some software recommendations to build models on from my shitty stick art that I could learn on and go from making circles on up to stuff like pic related.

Its a long shot type of aspersion, but I'm very patient and have plenty of free time in between my written projects to learn a thing or two from /3/, since its needed for the VN and fighting game format that I would like my work to be presented in.

What kind of autistic answer is that. You won't get any shading issues if the faces remain flat (which they should). Most people who model like this are blendlets making their first unity horror games. Floor should be separated from the walls, same with the ceilings.

>> No.760892

You got to remember, in this day and age, PBR is a thing, and among those textures are displacements. So say the wall texture you use is that of a set of tiles, you're going to need a displacement map for realism, and that's where the smooth shading option comes in.

>> No.760904


Displacement existed before PBR.

>and that's where the smooth shading option comes in.

Blendlets can't possibly be this dumb. Displacement maps have nothing to do with shading, normal maps do. And all of this have nothing to do with wall topology.
