It's stylized cell shading + mostly hardsurface, why should this be a problem to rig and animate? Easy, cheap and fast which means they can iterate a lot and concentrate more on the art not the technical aspects.
Its far below the complexity of the first Gollum.
I can totally see why they used Blender for that, Maya is simply not necessary.

The look has no bearing on this matter.
Rigging in blender is absolute bullshit and I don't even want to imagine how much more so is maintaining one if its rigs.
The Jaegers in Pacific Rim were an absolute clusterfuck, with them being animated using ultra-low-res rigs and the high-res rigs needing to be split in pieces, the details being animated separately and then cached out and reassembled back only at render time loading the animation on top because all the moving bits and pieces and the things they had going on at once would just grind a viewport-enabled Maya to a halt. And Maya computes rigs several orders of magnitude faster than blender ever will.
And those went for the "anime feel" and only managed to look like featherweights for their size when moving.
These actually need to nail the "anime feel" for obvious reasons, but they'd need a pretty loose and free range of motion to achieve that. Just hoping they won't run into the opposite problem just because of blender being stupid.

Everyone knows who Superman is, and like everyone in Japan knows what Evangelion is (or at least could point out an Eva and say what it's from).

whats the point of UV mapping if I can just select parts of the model, apply my texture and scale/rotate until it fits?

>> No.700722

>>700719
Because what you're doing is lazy and only the first 10% of actually texturing an object. Slapping textures on haphazardly is the gateway to shitty texturing, and if you make a habit of it now you'll never git gud.
There's a huge difference between a model with a texture applied to it that's not really made for it, and a model with proper uv's and textures specifically made for it. For small shit you don't have to properly texture it if you don't want to though. Not to mention there's some situations where just putting on a texture and messing with the mapping is alright too, like if you've got a logo or something.

UV's aren't hard anon. Learn them, it's not too hard to learn in an hour or so. You won't be a super expert on it, but not a lot of people are.

Yeah pretty much. If you've got tilable textures and stuff you can get away with it just fine, but it'll be more work to get it to look good.
That being said, procedurals are pretty powerful, and you can get a good chunk of the way with that. So look into that as well. There's a pretty good thing called Mask Tools or something that works in the Shader Editor really well.

But if you're going to want to texture in something like Substance Painter, you're gonna need UVs. Not just because it makes it easier, but SP will shit the bed and not work if you don't have them. Plus if you ever want to paint something in Photoshop or anything like that, it's helpful to have UVs.

I don't get it.
What's the use of those automatic retopo functions when the output still is shit compared to manual work? It barely follows the shapes, has the same density even in really low detail areas and is overall really wonky. In the end you'd still need to retopo it all to get a decent result and to fix sculpting problems on the go you wouldn't need all that new high tech quad stuff and some normal remeshing would be sufficient for that, so what's the fucking use?

I FIGURED IT OUT

I started deleting constraints until the problem went away. turns out it was caused by a damped track constraint on the clavacle, which I used to have the shoulder move automatically when the arm moves up. once I deleted that, the delay was gone.

So I guess now my question is how do I properly set up a shoulder that automatically moves when the arm moves?

Whoever drew in that skeleton had no idea what they where doing, I have the non cartoon variant of a chest like that
and there is inches of beef sitting ontop of the ribcage that is just way deeper than depicted there.


I developed a big ribcage from freediving a lot as a kid, could spend several minutes under water back in the days.
And you'll get that 'shelf' type pecs if you press downward a lot, for me it happened climbing long ladders
and eventually I got fit enough that I could do muscleups and from there it just took off.

They actually knew exactly what they were doing -- making fun of that cartoonist.
As stated before, he traced the upper body pose from Arnold with the chest turned but placed the shoulder joint as if the character was shown completely from the side which makes the chest seem bulging out a lot more but in reality it's just slightly angled and the shoulders are totally misplaced.

Anyone having problems baking their reflections/irradience in Eevee?
I'll press the button to bake, it'll hang for a second, do nothing but say it's taking up 134mb in memory with 0 cubemaps and 0 light volumes.
I don't know what's up. It was working just fine 5 minutes ago. I just went to bake again and it shit the bed. Even closing the program and going back in doesn't fix it.

All i can say if it was a common problem people would've already complained or even fixed it.

So it seems it's something specific to your scene / pc.

Hair works for me.

If you're running out of memory.
Then you could add (on windows) virtual memory through paging. (or whatever it's called I'm not using windows in english)

Or you just added too much hair so it just takes long on your hardware specs to compute.

Either it's not rudimentary, or your system specs are shit.

Just made a sphere, 1.000.000 hairs in particle system, took ~5sek to set up in viewport.

It's amazing that an actual artist is helping with programming (especially cool how he got into Blender dev mostly because he wanted tools for his personal workflow that weren't there yet).

Modeling in Blender is slow even with top of the range CPUs. You need to wait until the devs solve the issues affecting Blender's performance, or simply use a different DCC software.

if you are wanting to stop that weird bowing effect at the ends of long runs of pipe you need to add in a second edge loop just before and possibly after connecting to the corner piece.

He said this also literally over 3 weeks ago.
Usually he was really active, did his best to make that show and communicated a lot over Twitter, especially if it wasn't possible to stream.
Suddenly he barely twitters for weeks and no new shows. He says the place he's (or apparently has been for weeks) has a shitty connection but come the fuck on. What's wrong with saying you're taking a month off, especially if the net is shit over there instead of dropping one tweet every 2 weeks saying you will upload a podcast only to not doing it again at the end.

I have two identical models with different UV layouts, when I bake the normals from original (left) to the other model (right), the normal map just comes out as smooth and flat without any of the detail, the normal map strength is cranked up to 5-fold and there's still barely any detail and the folds are gone.

How do you bake 1:1 normals from one model to another? To clarify I'm not trying to bake from high poly to low poly, I just need to make a normal map texture from a model that consists of complicated procedural node setups.

>> No.703474

If you have a displacement map you could subdivide the model on the left and use that to bake, but afaik normal maps aren't factored when baking models, so what you're trying to do doesn't really work.

Several related questions:
How do you start character animation in blender? What a pretty standard workflow? There's a million tutorials on everything else but never this unless it's a walk cycle for a video game.
Like do you block out the position first, then the main poses then the frames in between? Or do you do it all in order or what?
I also have a problem where I can get every individual frame to look right, but they end up feeling disjointed and very amateurish. I assume this is something that really only comes with practice, but is there a better way to practice than just banging my head against a wall making sub par animations until I magically get better? I'm looking for ways to practice effectively, not magic bullets to instantly make my animation good.

I have a question about eevee, I like the renders i'm getting but there's always some weird noise in the reflections/light diffuse, I realize eevee is most suited for animation and I'm definitely going to use cycles for still images, but that noise still annoys me.
How do I fix it? There's some secret setting I didn't turn on? Do I need to render in a higher resolution and then re scale it? I've tried to up the samples, but without any results.
I've made a comparison render showing what I'm talking about.

Noob here, using 2.8 and eevee. How do I set up individual/selective lights for every object. For example:
I have two objects - a sphere and a cube. I want one light source for the sphere and another light source for the cube BUT I dont want the sphere's light source to lit (light?) the cube and vice-versa - I don't want cube's light source to lit (light) the sphere BUT I want their shadows to work normally, like a single shadow for each object - overlapping each other.
How should I proceed? I can't find a reliable toot online.

the fundamental workflow of character animation is the same whether you're doing low res pixel art or actually drawing or 3d modeling. Make keyframes that look good and work from there. And the same rules for making those video game walk cycles look good apply to everything else too. Also learn anatomy and look at references

Just got back into 3D modelling after a 10 year hiatus. Never was an expert in it to begin with though.

So I'm having some trouble with cycles in blender. I always have to de-noise my scene in another program after each render. I already have the samples cranked way up to 1,000. I also have another question, What the fuck are cycles exactly, why do they take forever to render over the default blender render, and why would anyone ever use them?

The render is from blender 2.79, I wanted to try out a simple scene to see how cycles worked. This is post de-noising.

Cycles is a non-realtime renderer. It gets tons of advanced lighting shit, light can bounce off of an object onto another and tint that object with the color it bounced from, it can bounce thousands of times if you make it so in the settings. Cycles is for final renders, blender render or its replacement Eevee are fast realtime renderers made for viewing while working. Turn on the denoiser, should be under the icon that looks like a stack of photos.

thanks. That helped alot. 200 samples on this one while not perfect makes a hell of a difference in time when I'm just doing simple render scenes like this compared to the 1,000 samples + third party denoising.

I'll also keep that stuff in mind. I was trying to make the lampshade look like it's passing light through. Apparently the only way to do this is with cycles.

>> No.703797

>>703793
If you want light to pass through, I think you could use a checker texture as your pattern for the less transmissive fabric and the spaces between it, route that into a transparent shader with a black-white color ramp to set the transparent-opaque peak intensity and dropoff, then mix that with your final shader to get one that looks like fabric with light shining through.

If it didn't had that fucked up notch, which is a big red flag that means you have to inspect all of your model and possible do manual corrections afterwards, i might pick something like this up for at most $20.

Give you the base texture?

Shader defines how the surface reacts to light and your viewing angle, meaning it's dynamic and dependent on the scene.

I know from 3dsmax you could bake lighting information into the texture - like generate a lightmap and combine it with the albedo to get a static baked lit object if you will.
