Anyone here used turbosquid to sell models? I know someone who is poor and wants to sell some models on turbosquid to make money. This person might (and this is only a might) be using a torrented version of Zbrush and Max. Can he still sell models? What are the odds the police will show up and check that he has legit programs? Remember this is just a hypothetical situation here

impossible to sell without a legit license, the poliece have trackers on turbosquid that checks the key for every upload. you ( or as you say, your "friend" ) will need to invest in a license to sell anything. or go to jail, your choice

Between these two pieces of software, which should I switch to?

My goal is to do freelance CG work for a living. I learned on Maya and Mudbox, but fuck Autodesk. I own a legit copy of ZBrush and Photoshop already, and I would almost definitely do my texturing in Substance Painter, via their subscription-to-own thing. The price difference between Modo and Lightwave is small enough that it doesn't matter so much to me.

As I understand it, Lightwave is more stable than Modo. That's about the only real difference I know of that would apply to me, because of the reasons above.

Features and stability of software do matter. Now answer the question.

all I know about modo as a novice cg guy is that friends who jumped to it for modelling said that other softwares can't really compare, it's so ahead its not even funny

Don't know if you guys can help (or if this is the right place to ask) but I am helping out a friend by taking screenshots of a DVD. I am just using VLC for this. Don't know much of this sort of thing. Thing is I am getting what seems to be inter-lacing lines on the movement frames.
Can this be stopped?
or is there a better program to use?

any help would be appreciated.

Hey /3/, I have a file conversion question and I'm not sure where else to go. This is going to be kind of long, just a heads up.

I don't work much with 3dcg so bear with me. I'm trying to create a 3d game in unity, and my ultimate goal is to import a model from Techarts3d Custom Girl into Unity.

Unity supports the import of .obj, .fbx, .max and .blend as detailed here:

3D Custom Girl (3DCG) saves it's models as .tso files. In the mod catalof for 3DCG I've fiund scripts that supposedly...

Get a hold of max or maya Op and then figure out how to get your mesh into one of those. They have scores of import/export formats and plug-ins.

Once you have all of your weeb bullshit inside max or maya you can export it into unity from those and do whatever it is you feel you must do.

>>507665
Hongfire forums. The guys there mod the game to add new dresses and animations. Some guys know the model format and most likely the utility used to modify the models is open source. I would try there.

Does this board not have a general questions thread? I don't feel this is important enough to warrant it's own thread but I don't see anywhere else to ask it.

Anyway, I'm wondering if in blender there's a way to either straighten out the curved bit of the uvs in my screenshot here so that the whole thing is straight, or do some fuckery with modifiers to make an arrayed curve shrinkwrap to it without having to apply the curve modifier first.

I'm trying to convert a track from one racing game to another, but they use different methods...

why does it look like a clusterfuck of vertices's?

>>506889
It's a laser scanned point cloud of the track the devs ran through some algorithm to make a mesh out of.

I'm trying to play around with softimage mod tool now since I read somewhere it can transfer uvs between objects of similar shape but different vertex count, but it doesn't seem to be working.

Does 3dsmax have a way to doing what I'm trying to do? I have a year or two left on my student license from college but I don't have it installed to check.

Forgot to mention this, but this is what the visible mesh for that same section of track looks like.

I want to take the uv mapping from this, and transfer it to that mesh in the OP pic. If I can't do that I want to remake the mesh you see in the OP using an array along a curve in blender so it can easily be textured.

You can see here on the left how the visual part is textured, the mask for the asphalt texture follows the curve. I somehow need to get that mess of vertices to do this.

It can make a great start, you gotta set the heightmap properly. But there is no 3d data in a 2d picture. Make it b/w, make it a smaller resolution, like 500x500, create a plane, subdivide it so that it has 500x500 faces. Separate the profile from the other part of the picture, make it lighter, so that there isn't black spots that would result in 0 displacement. Make the background black. Make the plane exact same dimension as the picture and cut it so that every pixel has a face to bump. It's looking pretty...

Say I had the next year with an extreme amount of freetime, How advanced can 1-3 people make CGI by themselves? Obviously movie teams consist of million dollar budgets and huge teams, but what is achievable at home?


Maya, 3DS Max, ZBrush are supposedly used for most modeling, and After Effects seems to be the best video rendering/editing program, but beyond that what can be used? What would you have to use for lighting and animation and what not to have it not look like a homemade youtube blender kidshit?

Depending on what you're going after. Do you want a cartoony thing like ice age, or realistic fantasy like the wc3 trailers, how long do you want it to be? You need mocap in any case, an animation capable 3d program, a renderfarm, a very good pre-production. Seriously, you need to decide everything at start, so you can do it one by one and render it one by one, you need to start rendering as fast as possible, preferably after the first month. You need to have scenario, a sound editor, a good workflow.

Hello, /3/!
Is anyone out there using 3DS Max 2016?
Did you find any bugs with it?
I've had a problem with it, when I import a model, any model, and apply TurboSmooth with 3 iters, I get a "KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILED" blue screen. It also stopped working for a whole week, and even corrupted Windows once.
Anyone?

Is there money to make in 3D porn? I often find websites where you can buy a package with 60 renderings or one short animation video for around 10$ each. There are many sites like that. I always thought it is impossible people buying those for 3D porn instead of just watching a real porn for free.

Yeah well those porn sites with 35 dollar a month subscriptions still make money too. There's still a big market for porn in a traditional "consumer exchanges money for product" kind of format.
>>
>>506217
the only problem is it's really easy to steal porn games. Your best option would be to create a subscription service that allows access to content you broadcast from a browser, preferrably using unity, html5, or flash player. this will guarantee ppl needing to keep spending to keep accessing your content.

I've been trying to learn maya for the last few days.

But I'm using the student version of Maya and it doesn't allow commercial work.

Which is why I'm thinking of learning Blender.

As a programmer, I only took on modelling because it feels fun and sometimes I need something specific in whatever it is that I'm creating.

So I came here to ask, should I continue in using Maya and ignore all of its warnings (maybe hoping that one day I'll earn enough to buy it), or should I take up Blender before I'm too deep into Maya?

Also, I don't know which key I pressed to do this, but my "edit mesh" and "mesh tools" have suddenly disappeared from the top menus.
It's still there in the spacebar menus, just not on the top ones.

The way I see it Blender is an amazing program that can almost everything Maya can and even some things Maya can't do. It's the most complete package I ever seen and it's FREE so what's the problem?

The problem is Maya is the industry standard, so if you're looking for a job NOBODY wants to see Blender in your resume and everyone wants you to know Maya.

I don't know, there's a cheap version of Maya called Maya LT that may let you Publish your work. I really like Blender, but Maya is like the Photoshop of the 3D industry for better or for worse

Your edgeflow really needs work, you can improve the butt cheeks and stomach flow. I'm still working at mine, but maybe this will help.

You can use blendshapes to correct deformation too, you can set them up to gradually turn on as you rotate the joint. Look into corrective shapes.

Yeah, it really did need work. I've decided the model really needs to be retopologized in some major areas and have gone to work on it.

A big problem is the character is humanoid in shape, but not actually a human. They don't have any defined muscles or anything of the like, so I'm trying to get proper topology without defining muscle groups since that'd look super awkward for the character.

So, I have a question:

When making 3d models for sale (game/3d graphic assets), should all parts of the model be connected? By vertex or armature that is.

I'm modeling since few years, but I was always making single-mesh models. Now, If I was about to model a block with it's back lid unattached to the rest of the clock, should I just model two separate objects and leave it be, or should I connect them somehow, so the thing won't fall apart in physics engine for someone who will be using it? I'm suspecting that it all depends on the model's...

No, game objects can be made of many objects

For example think about characters in a game. The character will have a body mesh and objects representing clothing, armour, helmets gloves, weapons etc. These are all seperate meshes in one object
