I'm thinking of getting into 3D...I have 2 laptops. Which one would be better?

Laptop 1 (2008 Dell Vostro 1700)
Intel Core 2 Duo
16:10 aspect ratio
17" screen
1920x1200 resolution
NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT
4GB DDR2 RAM
Windows 10

Laptop 2 (2014 Dell Inspiron 3531):
Intel Celeron N2830
16:9 aspect ratio
15" screen
1366x768 resolution
Intel HD Graphics 4000
4GB DDR3 RAM
Lubuntu Linux 15.10; Android-x86 4.4-r4

Which one should I install Blender on?

Pic related since I don't want to pay for anything.

OP here.
Sorry, I messed up the OSs. The Inspiron has Win10, not the Vostro. The Vostro has Lubuntu.

why not just it on both and see which one gives better render times?

Hey, thanks for the reply.
Does it looks done? I mean, are the loops correctly done?
If that looks done, I'll be okay with it. I'm just insecure that the loops are not correct or there are too many stars or some other shit.
I mean, I've looked EVERYWHERE but nobody has a close up shot of the eyelids.
I would like to make the eyelids pixar style

I'm not a rigger nor an animator, so I Don't know if they'll work properly. Also, I'm not sure if I should leave cavities...

Photoshop -> layer -> matting -> remove white matte

That or catch the alpha with a noBackground plane/sphere that englobes the scene.

Thanks senpai

>>514313
next time create a background object and apply a material on it.
In the color tab of the material, create a gradient. Click on it and switch to radial or circular and change the colors to your liking. No need to use Photoshop for a simple job like that. Do it in C4d.

house wall textures are too big, make them at least half the size.
Either all the doors are too narrow, or the chairs are too big, something's off there.
Lawn seems really wobbly, usually people try to keep it as even as possible. Use varying grass lengths instead if you want to make it visually interesting.
The background seems very empty, there are a few trees standing around but behind them there's nothing. You could make the fence wall higher to hide that, or use big bushes as a background.

I've been rocking an i7 920 for like 10 years and mi Mobo is starting to die, so i decided to get a new pc for 3D rendering mostly and for gaming,

Did i do good?

the graphic card will change once new DX12 shit comes out since nvidia fucks cant into dx12 propetly.

Also i choosed nvidia because of compatibilities with after effects, max and programs that use CUDA.

Looks mostly fine, although I'd have gotten a Noctua D15 over a CLC cooler, especially one with a 120mm rad. Wouldn't want the pump to fail during an overnight render, RIP CPU, or house fire.

The 970 you'll definitely want to change sometime soon, in fact you probably should have gotten a 980 because that 3.5GB RAM might fuck you over if you use a GPU renderer and it decides to use more than that. 3.5GB is easy to burn through if you have more than a basic scene and high-res textures.

ok you just scared me about the cooling,it has to have some kind of security system,and pcs normally shut down when they get too hot.
and i didnt though the 3.5 fail of the 970.

i can always say its broken and make them change it for another card since its marketed as a 4gb card.

btw its 1700€ wich is a lot for me so i expect it to be a monster.
>>
>>514217
Computers should auto shutdown if the CPU gets too hot, but when there's nothing but a bit of water above the CPU you might get a heat spike that's potentially dangerous. At least an air cooler can passively work if the CPU fan stops.

And yes, GPU RAM is important to pay attention to for compute, since game engines can adapt to the amount of RAM you have and continue to work, but stuff like rendering does not.
Of course it all depends on scene complexity, I think that studio or interior arch setups...

So you got hired by a company to do a 3D model and in all your conversations with them about the product, you never quite managed to catch the name of the product you were modeling?

It's good, all the materials are well defined. Are the corners meant to shade like that they kind of draw your eye to them.

>>514178

thanks, yeah the corners are a bit weird. But the lighting was quite complex for this scene. The thought is to get the curved feeling across.

Hey /3/, I'm using 3DS Max and I ran into a problem.

I'm trying to get a bunch of cylinders to follow a spline using the spacing tool so they can simulate an ammo belt.

That worked, but I'm trying to have a gradual rotation along the belt, with the last cylinder being rotated 90 degrees from the first cylinder.

I tried fooling around with the spacing tool settings but I couldn't get the result I wanted so I ended up using soft selection. The result is pic related. I sort of got the rotation I wanted, but now most of the cylinders are...

...and then...
--> select the object you want on the path
--> select the path
...this will add a path constraint to that object + keyframes for that object moving along said path from start to finish.

After that in the motion panel, under "Path Parameters" check the "Follow" box. This will cause the object to follow the bends in the path (NOTE: if the object acts janky...
