A question for the blender people

I wanted to fix some stuff in my mesh so deleted a smaller part of it and now I want to fill that hole again.
The thing is, I was pretty much done with the whole model with textures, UVs and all.

I thought deleting some faces and filling the hole wouldn't be a bigger problem but apparently it isn't as easy as I thought.

Do I really have to do the whole UV AGAIN just for a handful of changed polygons?
234 replies and 39 images submitted. Click here to view.
just unwrap the new polygons you created
use the pin function in the UV editor and then unwrap. pinned vertices don't move when you unwrap. I'm sure you can figure out the rest.
OP here, saw you're interested in this, too.

I kinda solved the problem by making a loop around the clusterfuck and then merged at center/merged at several places to get a nice quad.
apparently you mustn't create a hole, otherwise your UV is fucked and you can UV again.

I have gone through all the tutorials in 3dsmax and played around a bit, as well as practising some importing from sketchup stuff.

I am looking for tutorials on using vray with 3ds max or honestly just some general tips.

Rendering is pretty new to me, most of my experience is modelling on sketchup so I have been a bit overwhelmed with all the rendering options for Vray, but I want to get better at it. I know it will come with time but I would love some advice on just some general 'good' settings, maybe that I can even save as a template and then work...

Buy (yeah right) Grant Warwick's vray course. If you're interested in how vray really works there is no way around it. None of the other tutorials out there come close.

Most of it deals with 3.0-3.2 and a lot of the advice concerning optimization no longer applies to 3.3, but the logic and reasoning behind it is still good to know.
Care you bring elaborate on why the optimization isn't as needed in 3.3? Was 3.3 a very large update?

Asking cos in using 3.2 at the moment but I might upgrade if it's worth it for starting out
Optimization is still needed (only if you care about render times, of course), but the process has been greatly simplified.

3.3 introduced an updated adaptive image sampler that only requires you to adjust the AA subdivs and the color threshold to optimize your scene. No more fiddling with the scene subdivisions and other settings.

Hi! Can you advice me wtf is wrong with my skin tex? I render this in 3ds vray, textures baked in zbrush. Have no idea how to get this more realistic
4 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
I think it lacks subsurface scattering, but also the color seems off, never seen a skin like that before
its not so much to do with your software so as the actual texturing work itself, look at more skin reference and understand what colors go where
skin is not pink
just get a skin mat

In this modern era, I've been trained to only be satisfied with high poly count, so when I try to do low poly art I end up feeling like it doesn't have enough detail, even though more detail is exactly what the model doesn't need.

Anyone else have this problem?

C4D literally has the best interface of any of the major suites. If you learn a little xpresso sorcery and get Cactus Dan's plugins, you can pretty much do it all.
Maxon is in a pretty fucked situation.
Their price is the same league as Maya, Max, but they are way behind the competition in pretty much all disciplines (except Motion graphics).
They had 2 weak releases back to back, a lot of trouble with customers over their render farm managing and licensing, most of the customer base is not amused.
The whole 3D world made fun about Maxon and their Cogwheel feature in R17.

Blender to 3ds Max.jpg
108 KB,
When I started to learn 3d modeling at age 15, I used Blender solely because it was the smallest download size and it would run on the shitty laptop I owned at the time. Now I'm 19 and I need to use 3ds Max for a Uni course.
I have found a couple of online resources that teach Blender to 3ds Max users, but I couldn't find any for the other way around. Does anyone here know of one? Or at least a 3ds Max tutorial that is more focused on teaching the program itself to 3d modelers? Every max tutorial I have found is either for complete 3d modeling beginners or Maya users.

why not work with blender?
For most of my classes I can and do use Blender. But because the lectures insist that 3ds Max is an industry standard. For one specific class we HAVE to use 3ds Max. This is also because a subject the following semester requires us to only use Maya.
talk to your teacher about it.

Do you need something specific?

Why not just use Daz Studio and download free assets to use to make your cheap assed animu waifu. There's a tonne of weeb stuff for Daz Studio that's free and with puppeteer and aniblocks it's pretty easy to animate in.
It costs as much as you're willing to ask for.
As you can see in the entertainment industry, the sky's the limit in regards to price and quality.
what duration? even something like three minutes of animation will cost you several thousands.

I have to resize the UV projection to get one to fit but I'm not sure that's how it works. On a sample object I downloaded applying the texture makes it automatically assign the colors to the object, not having to resize the UV projection to fit?

You should just sculpt detail like that. The arm should just be a bendy tube that you apply a normal map to. There is a debate as to whether muscle based loops like you have done or the bendy straw method is best.
there is no rule,just have enough at deformation areas
Doesn't look like a good method, made a bunch of poles at a spot that will see a lot of deformation. I just add a few extra loop cuts at the knees and elbows, it'll give you enough faces if you want to make the elbow more apparent.

I really cannot afford a 3,000 dollar or even 900 dollar version of a software such as C4D

If you need a DCC for modelling and game dev/ modding i would advice to not use C4d.
Maya, Max, Modo, Blender are better tools for that.

I've been trying to export to maya, and I tried, everything. The only way that worked for me was exporting to Cinema4d and then exporting again as an .fbx file. But you have to make up for the different ways programs read the project units. There's a lot of clipping with cameras that you have to adjust.
so what you're saying is.. the best way to do this is to just get nuke instead of AF
I couldn't tell, as I've never used nuke, but if you're trying to make 3d VFX then yeah I guess, as AE is not for 3d heavy scenes, only for basic stuff. I mean, exporting to c4d and saving as a fbx is not exactly a huge workaround.
