Very good speakers oppy. You should try selling them to one of those 3D stock model sites. You'd think no one buys them, but architectural/design firms do all the time because it's less expensive to them overall when they are doing nice renderings for interiors to buy the models for props like teacups or vases and shit, than it is to build them from scratch (the latter being more time consuming, thus more expensive).

Has anyone here ever looked into the previz employment market? I am considering it, and I was wondering what tools are being used by the pros, and what people that hire for previz expect you to know.

Is previz usually just down with something like Maya playblasts? I hear a lot of people looking toward things like Unreal Engine and other real time tools for it, at least in the near future. What about iClone? It's actually marketed toward previz artists, but I don't know how often it's used in actual productions.

Hello /3/
Im a newbie in 3dsmax and I dont know how to fix this issue, lets see if you guys can help me.

1 - I have this edge (A) and I want to chamfer it.
2 - Right button, Convert to Editable poly
3 - Select the edge, Chamfer
and..
this is what happens (B). It does chamfer but somehow it gets inverted at some point and it ends backwards. Is there any quick fix or something for this?

Thanks in advance

It wont work with open edges. You need to add planes as if it were a physical mass.

Use the create polygon tool to close any holes after making sure you have no "duplicate" vertices occupying the same point. If you do, use the weld or target weld function to connect them.

So I'm doing the chess exercise in my intro to 3ds max course and I need to use the inset command for the rook for the battlements. However, when the inset is applied, the polygons go all over the place from the middle. What am I doing wrong? How can I fix this? No matter how many times I delete this object and redraw the line from scratch, when I get to this stage it fucks up again.

I fixed it by deleting some of the lines from the top and then redrawing them and welding the vertexes. Still p bad, but at least they're not clipping through themselves.

Does anyone know how to create a nice looking (but low poly and baked) ocean that I can import into Unity? I don't know how to make the material look good and, basically everything.
I'm pretty new to blender.
Also, the ocean kinda flows into a river and ends out in the ocean again, but it looks like the water melts through the island. How do I make it seem like the water is crashing or flowing?

yes. That's what happens when you just intersect a plane through geometry.

first you gotta into 3D, then use something better than blender.

come back when you have actually into 3D

Unlike these chucklefucks who have no idea how to answer your question but instead decided to shitpost. I'll provide some tips.

Texturing is vital for bodies of water, most 3d games with water uses an animated normal map to show water movement while others have some form of wave movement on the ocean model. If you looked at a river in Skyrim for example, you'd see that it's actually just a flat plane that has an animated texture on it.

For a blender animation, I'd just put a wave modifier on the middle of the island and adjust it so that it...

Yeah, Cryengine's import and export system is pretty cancerous, but no where near as bad as Source.

Anyways, UE4 has better shading and lighting systems, and can look even better if you want to bake light maps and shit.

3.) "Whoah, Generalized vs Specialized? How do I know?"

A generalised package like Maya, Max, Softimage are packages that let you model, render,
animate, texture, and create dynamics all within the same application. They don't require third party plugins
or applications to add another basic feature, like a renderer or animation tools.
However you can get plugins for these apps to enhance their features.
There are several Specialized applications out there that cater to a specific skill.Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

When a studio judges your demo reel and resume they have an order of priority.

2-Versatility
3-Experience
4-Program skills

Except for Animators who are pretty much exempt from most rules of 3D, most studios want people who
can perform multiple tasks instead of just...
