A good artist looks at new techniques and workflows as a challenge to improve and gain a new understanding in their art, and how to incorporate those new ideas into their art to create something new.
I'm not saying 2.8 will drastically change how your work will come out, but being a sourpuss because you can't be bothered to learn a new thing that'd take all of 10 mins to get used to just means you're gonna stagnate.

>> No.704250

Yes, but that's not the issue. If you model in Blender 2.80 using the subdiv modifier, and then you bring the mesh to another program or different version of Blender, the differences in the subdivision algorithm will make the model look noticeably different. This is unacceptable in any production pipeline. Even if you only use Blender 2.80, what you make now may look different in later versions of the software, binding your work to 2.80, or forcing you to fix the meshes if you want to use them elsewhere.

I just realized that if you rotate/flip an UV of a face then a tangent normal map will have way different and often times incorrect shading even if it's a completely flat purple normal map.

Didn't use eevee a lot for rendering yet, so I'm not sure about all of it's workings.

But could it be that if you render a frame with f12 it's fixed - so that these simplified shadows only appear in the viewport?

>> No.704735

Eevee isn't a raytracer, so shit like that happens a lot.
Use the Irradiance volumes in the add>light probes to bake lighting info.
Size it up to your room, give it a good amount of sample points (in the same tab you mess around with lights in), then hit bake in the light volumes section of the render tab. It'll take a bit to bake the lighting depending on how many points you have, but yeah.
You won't be able to change your lighting without re-baking it though, so only really bake it when you need a good preview, or you're done.

You can have multiple volumes as well. Generally it's good practice to have one cover the scene at lower sample points, then your focus covered in one with higher sample points for more detailed lighting there. Also, emissions don't actually give off light in eevee, but if you bake the lighting they will and interact with objects as well (same for indirect lighting bouncing off objects).

Also, it doesn't work all that well with animations. Like you can animate other objects and stuff just fine, but for obvious reasons you won't be able to animate your light volume. So it won't work all that well for moving scenes.

>> No.704808

The answer is that normal maps are cancer. Flip the mirrored half of the model "inside out", it's technically wrong now and you should generally avoid this, but this way the normal maps look right and as long as you don't cull out backfaces it looks like it should.

Since they removed bevel with 2.8 the easiest way now is to just start with a sphere and sculpt/scale it into the rough shape, important to get corners the way you need them first try. Then place cubes on each side, so 6 sides like you are boxing out a square, then just use Boolean modifiers and squish in the cubes so they square out the sphere but leave rounded.corners.

I've gotten past this by making sure to apply the mirror modifier before exporting to xnormal, they have overlapping UVs but baking both sides lets it handle that seam.

Good job. Beveling by hand is artistically superior to using whatever crappy bevel algorithms other apps come with. This is another reason to favor Blender. Only with Blender can you make a cube with SOUL.

>> No.704922

Beveling by hand also encourages a soulful, minimalistic type of game design. By using thousands of triangles for every bevel, you need to use more simplistic shapes and less total objects in realtime rendering. This results in a game that fully utilizes the processing power of modern computers while also replicating the superior artstyle of the 90s.

Start with cube > subdivide it about 10times > into sculpt mode , then turn on symmetry for x y and z, > then use the smooth brush, default settings but change the size to be as deep as you would want the bevel to be < smooth out all the corners, or not all! its up to you > back to normal edit mode > go to orthographic perspective for each axis (i use xray to do 2 sides at once) and select the center vert, then ctrl + + to grow the selection to the edge of the bevel > delete faces > go to edge select and select the loops left by the holes you just made to make it a single face to save on computing power.

This is how next-gen games are going to push graphics further, Crytek plans on switching to Blender and using ngons to make Crysis 4 look better than real life while getting 144 fps at 4k on integrated graphics. They'll also be using a revolutionary new texture optimization technique where they use 16777216 1x1 textures instead of a single 4k textures. A 1x1 texture is so small that they can use a practically infinite amount of them without straining the computer.

If your environment is static, bake it. That's pretty much it.
Bake after you're sure you're done lighting, or you just want a more solid preview.

You shouldn't need to bake your lighting while you're actually doing it. Just worry about the overall picture when you're lighting, and remember in the back of your mind things should come together when you bake it out.

Anyone know of a good way to emulate materials/colors under a blacklight? I've done quite a bit of searching around and have come up with next to nothing. Searching for ultraviolet or UV light comes up with the obvious results (UV mapping).

I figured it would be pretty simple (a mix of emission and diffuse probably), but it's not really right, even when using purple light. There's something missing, and just mainly looks like washed out diffuse.

Think about it for a moment.
If you want a one-click solution for UV effects, first the software must know the physical properties of each item in the scene since things react differently to UV light.

Reading comprehension man. It's like you read every other word. If you don't know anything about it, why even answer?

>I don't see why you don't just eyeball the effects for the stuff you have in mind and tweak the shaders until you get a similar look.
I already tried that.
>I figured it would be pretty simple (a mix of emission and diffuse probably), but it's not really right, even when using purple light. There's something missing, and just mainly looks like washed out diffuse.

There's something with blacklight lit materials that is just weird. Like they interact with the light or something. It all retains its physical properties like roughness, but it glows at the same time. Any time you mix emission into a shader though it pretty much overpowers all of that.
Nowhere did I mention a one and done solution either. I'm quite fine doing it myself, I just wanted to be pointed in the right direction, or if anyone had any tips. Which is the whole point of me asking.

I have this object half that I want to mirror / duplicate and merge together along its middle edge. I tried RMB and setting the 3d cursor to one of the verts at the middle edge, and then mirror.

I tried the mirror modifier but it didn't work.

I tried duplicating and scaling across my axis by -1 but it didn't work (Y axis). I pressed period and set my PIVOT CENTER for rotation / scaling to be 3d cursor.

The object is not located at the origin. across my axis but it mirrors along the _orange dot_.

What do?

>> No.705048

Set the cursor to that middle point you want to mirror at, then right click the object, "set origin", origin to 3D cursor. That orange dot is the origin of your object, setting the pivot center only works for edit and object mode manipulation, not modifiers.

Getting somewhere at least doing it on my own.
Still missing that X-factor though. Taking the color and dividing it with the light color (purple), ended up bringing it closer to how it's supposed to look. Though predictably it doesn't work with every color, white turns pink instead of blue-ish.
If there was a way to selectively mix colors based on what's coming in I think I would be pretty good. So I'd be able to mix purple in for the colors it works with, but another color instead for things like white and yellow. I could probably do something with math nodes, or separating rgb, but that's kind of advanced for me.
Another thing is trying to get a purple hue into the shadows. I thought I could just mix it in, but none of the blending modes really do it.

It does have a nice purple rim lighting effect when viewing it just from the shadow side. You can't see it in the picture though.

I still sculpt inside Sculptris and then export it over to Blender for details and everything else.
In Sculptris, sculpting is butter smooth and I love how the mesh stays smooth while you're at it, even when you just roughly pull out shapes.
In Blender, it just looks disgusting all the time until you manually smooth out shit and feels clunky as fuck.
Yesterday, Blender got a patch that does mesh relaxation on click of a button but a tiny fucking decade old freeware program does it automatically, in a really subtle way but it is enough to make sculpting so much more pleasing. The standard brushes are also perfect compared to what you have out of the box in Blender.

This is why I don't bother using Blender anymore. All of this stuff (Retopo, actually good UV tools) are included by default in pro packages. With blender, if the add on dev decides it's over, well it's over, and you're left with the default empty shell that blender is.

>> No.705196

No, it highly depends on what you want to do with it.
In "normal" workflows, you can do pretty much anything 3D with Blender and even do freelance work just fine but if you want to emulate certain workflows you know from other software or you fell in love with a ton of addons you NEED, shit gets ugly quick.
Years ago I enjoyed adding tons of addons to my Blender but after many devs just fucked off and stopped updating, I just got used to get shit done without the help of dozens of addons. Luckily, Blender's development is going on a nice pace, especially since this year so there's less and less that I still miss but I understand fully when some people walk away from it again when shit doesn't work the way they expect it to do (a bit like coming from PS and trying GIMP but then again Gimp is an actual turd)

Thanks for the help guys.
I think I've finally got something that's looking near what I want, and also simple enough to just plug and play (webm related, some of the colors got sqashed and compression sucks). It's able to glow under the light, but still keep roughness intact. It even has support for things like when an object looks one color in regular light, but looks different under a blacklight. The vampire poster in the middle is a good example (skin is yellow in regular light, but in the blacklight it turns a pale green), I'm assuming that's what it's supposed to look like under a blacklight. Mainly it's just parts of the yellow spectrum automatically will turn that color with the shader. That's all customizable too though.
You can even do things that probably aren't really realistic too, like having something change to a color at the other end of the spectrum under the BL.
In any case, I think the whole "color change" thing would cover the gamut of different materials and how they'd react differently under UV light, as well as hiding things under the UV light with textures. So you'd be able to do things like have a nice clean rag in normal light, but then be super disappointed in anon when you find out it's actually his cumrag when it's under UV. You know, the simple things.

For obvious reasons it's not perfect as far as the physics goes and only really emulates some of the effects, but I'm happy with how it turned out. It's way more than what I really needed for the little project I'm doing, but it's robust enough to use for other things too. Dunno if anyone would want it for anything, but I can post it somewhere if you guys want. Don't know where would be a good place.

Get Substance Painter. See if you can't get the educational license for free (try even if you don't have an .edu email).
I've had the educational license for years and I've been out of school for years. There's not separate versions for the main version and edu version, they're just licenses as said before. Plus it gives you the whole suite.

Don't know how long you'll be able to do it since Adobe bought them, but get it while you can.

Plot twist, the shader doesn't work in Cycles. Pic related, left is Eevee, right is Cycles.
I'm relying on a "Shader to RGB" node to blend between emissive and dielectric materials (just using a diffuse shader to catch the light, then turn it into a black and white mask), but unfortunately, Shader to RGB doesn't actually work in Cycles. It's not supported.

So unless I can figure out a way to mix materials based on incoming light in Cycles (without using drivers), I'm a bit stuck. I mean I don't have to make it work in Cycles, but I feel like it would be half finished if it doesn't at least have some support with it. Especially if it would be something that could be sold.

So yeah, if anyone has any tips on how I can use the light in cycles as a mix factor, you'll be forever based as far as I'm concerned.

That sucks. What about 2.81? Think there was something about full compatibility between the two.

>> No.705765

Hadn't tried 2.81 yet, figured it wasn't quite up to snuff just yet. Not to mention it'd probably be a dick move to sell a shader that doesn't work for the current, stable, version.
I'll take a look at 2.81 though and see if it does. I've read a lot of stuff saying that Shader to RGB just won't work in a path tracer for various reasons, but who knows.

Anyone know about animation? I have two animations I want to combine. One moves the arms and the other moves the face but both have the same animation on the rest of the body. Is there an easy way to combine these two in the NLA without the frames that are in both actions doubling up? None of the blending modes seem to do the job.

so manually muting f-curves on the face for one of the actions works but that seems dumb. The software really can't figure this out itself?

Whats the best way to combine these?
I was just mucking around wanted to make somre shoulderplates but iv kinda hit a wall, right now each plates around 400 faces with no subd, but thats including undersides. I was wondering the best way forward to simplify this mesh.

Simply combining leads to heaps of issues with underside verts in the middle of the mesh i dunno how to clear

i tried booleans but unions end result is pretty much the same

any suggestions?
is it actually better to keep them seperate for rigging? i was considering that, it would mean more work in weighting them but could look cooler in the end but they were gonna be leather, not plate, so i wasnt too worried about a bit of conforming on them.

Displacement node does not work in 2.80 or 2.81

>> No.706050

Yeah, 2.81 is a no-go. Same results as last time. I've had a solution to the problem as far as cycles goes for a while, but I didn't want to do it because it relies on drivers from the lamp to influence it. Which means 1, it's not super user friendly, and 2, it only would support 1 light. So no indirect lighting or anything like that.

Because hurr durr the cage won't match the resulting highpoly if you're making a character from scrratch using a subdivision modifier.
Of course it fucking won't - It's still useful for making shit you're going to retopo anyway, or just need to be highpoly, or if you're making hardsurface stuff.

>> No.706091

Wew lad.
So if I'm trying to be precise when using a background image as a reference I should magically know how the mesh is going to shrink or use primitives with an absurd amount of polys? That's how you train beginners to start a character's leg with a 128 faced cylinder.

Is it? Okay, I'm thinking about switching my workflow to zbrush (everything) - blender (render). I feel like sculpting is just bad and hand painting is straight up retarded - gotta unwrap first and then deal with buggy brushes later, most of the time you'll paint somewhere and realize you missed some spots just because blender decided that if you don't see it, you won't paint it.

Unwrapping is just figuring out a 3D puzzle. You just gotta try to visualize what the mesh will look like flattened out, and how you can place seams strategically to get the best possible 2D geometry. I see it as a little game.
