Sup guys, need some help here.

I'm new to making games, and right now I'm trying to create animations in the Blender Action Editor that I can import into Unreal Engine 4.

I've searched around a lot on google, but I can't seem to find a tutorial on how to animate different parts of the body seperately, and then add them together in UE4. For example, a guy can either have his hands by his side, or hold a gun. But you don't want to create a walking animation for both the arms hanging down and holding the gun, you want to create an animations...

>Also, making each animation a file and exporting it to UE4 also seems to be a bit of a problem, I can't find anything about turning animations into their own files. If anyone know anything about this I would be even more grateful.
Been awhile since I tried importing animations into UE4 from Blender but I remember having to make them into Actions in the NLA editor (so I could give them proper names like walk, jump etc).

Change the FBX export to animations and you'll see...

Yeah, I found out how to export everything, but not single animations. Seems like other people have trouble with that too, but I'll try with the muting.

Weirdly enough, I can't seem to find anything in depth on this subject, neither in blender or UE4. I think I'll have to watch a video series where they create an entire character to get to that point. Google doesn't give any answer, not anything that I've found at least.

I was thinking into rendering a short movie in 4K, nothing but simple physics simulation. What's the best renderfarm there is in the internet ? Is a 1080 worth the price for rendering animations ? Does any of you own a render farm ?

I own a render farm in Taiwan. A 1080, lots of ram, good processor is fine for rendering a physics animation. Really no point in paying for rendering services either.

/3/, what do you find yourself making when you just want to blow people's minds with how "skilled" you are? I have an assignment to simply make a high-poly model of something, and I'm just wondering what's something I could do that would basically scream "wow look at me, I made this hard to make thing and I'm amazing because of it" without it actually being that difficult to do.

Right now I'm thinking maybe a realistic bust of an old man head or something, but that's so boring. I'm still thinking.

A bust isn't impressive. make a full character sculpt. quality/balanced design is far more impressive than just sculpting. demonstrate your understanding of 3d forms. Sculpting fine detail on a bust doesn't do this.
Flowers are fairly easy but can look really classy and aren't done so often that everyone is familiar with how hard they are.

Insects and similar can work as well. A millipede is basically just one segment copy-and-pasted many times plus a head and arse. Plus most people don't really know exactly what they look like up close so you can get stuff a bit wrong.

Alright you little faggot, that's not helpful feedback, but I'll take it as feedback anyways. Yes, it's an autistic fucking model. I quite literally traced the head from one of Chris's drawings, AND I did the proportions of the body to closely match the proportions most frequently drawn of Sonichu. I realize that it makes the character look like a flabby middle-aged man in a fursuit, but isn't that what we love about Sonichu?

So thanks for the feedback, but what I really want to know...

Uh because your shit doesn't look real. To elaborate: none of what you modeled has the complexity (or the semblance of complexity) of the real life things you're attempting to simulate.

Trees don't look like that, rocks don't look like that, grass doesn't look like that, light doesn't work that way, etc.

>what is viewport shading
tried it, couldn't find anything that looked normal. I don't think the shadows are supposed to be this intense.
It's because the mesh has a sharp edge bu the normals along that edge are smoothed, and you have very few faces so the normal shading is averaging over the entirety of the face adjacent to the smoothed edge.
Or at least that's usually the case with this type of shading.

I'd really like to work in the industry but i know it is saturated right now,
I get some good money until im 26 years old, that means i have the time to get a second degree/master.

i'd like something that could help me get in the industry easily, was thinking about programming or optics.
What would you recommend me to take?

10,000 hour rule
if you have 6 years to flounder then try everything at least once.
once you know what's what then pick something you find fun because youll be doing it every day.
the only think that will get you into the industry easily is if you take that skill you made with 10000 rule and turn it into an art.
or just know someone because in this industry you'll be working contract to contract so making reputable connections is a must if you aren't the best
oh, go work at Walmart because it's go big or go home
Unless you're ridiculously good in 3d animation, I'd recommend spending the next 6 years just building your portfolio.
Animation is more about what you can do, vs what you know.
People are going to want to see your portfolio+demo reel over everything else. Your degree is just icing on the cake.
Getting a CS degree will help with scripts/game dev/whatever if you want, but that's really up to you.

Also, if you wanted a stable job, you picked one of the worst industries for it.
Thanks for the tips

Hey /3/, I just finished my 6 month long student project and will be graduating in a few weeks. Any comments or tips for a fellow CG artist/animator going into the world?
23 replies and 2 images submitted. Click here to view.
If you're an animator you practice day and night to get as good as your gif and then some. You learn, practice, learn practice.

I have nothing to say for artists as that is different from my work. But practice for both.
if you are 3d animator I'd reallyy recomend looking into Street Fighter IV and V character animations and how they move, I have never seen such detail in animations almost in any game. just slow down videos and look how characters move, every one of them has theyr own characteristics etc, I really don't know why people are not using that game as refrence to character animation
If you made this animation from GIF and you know how to export it in FBX to unity/unreal, you'll be fine, actually drop some contact info, i might have work for you.

model something that is on your level of skill

and if you have a question, post it. you may not know if there is a faster/better way of modeling what you want to do
what this anon said.

You can't expect to model really realistic stuff outright if you're just starting, if that were the case anyone could do a couple of months of modelling classes and join the AAA industry, start small, make mistakes, that's how you learn anything. You'll get there eventually
Start of with easy stuff. How long have you modelled? If you are new don't make a complicated weapon, start by doing simple stuff

the light in the back is to be offset a little so it shows up on the rim of the subject, rather than directly behind

the light on the rim adds an outline to the contour

guy i knew from /p/ uses it a lot in his nude photography https://www.instagram.com/michaelrodriguezphoto/

that link is nsfw btw

It's kinda silly imo too and I was never a huge fan of it but just think of it the way it's called as "rim lighting". You set up your light sources so that the falloff illuminates the edges of your object/subject. It's supposed to give more definition, making it easier to focus on.

Not sure who out there is having so much trouble focusing of what is dead-on front and center but whatever.

What is the best way to model clothes for a video game character for a RPG type, (where you are supposed to change your attire)?

How is the mesh supposed to be?

Do you make a naked body, and "dress" it with clothes over (layering the meshes) or do you separate parts (say a head, a torso, and legs) and remove the naked "torso" mesh to replace with a T-shirt mesh for example?
26 replies and 4 images submitted. Click here to view.
Marvelous Designer

Skyrim or fallout is the best education on this. Look at the models with this tool.

You model the mesh naked with loops in tactical locations, then you have different versions of your naked mesh for different clothes.
Like say a head and arms only upper body for wearing a T-shirt, head and hands only version wearing a sweater, and so on and so forth.

impossible. experiment, figure out what works and what doesn't. then, when you're done breaking your back to get that shit working right after your first attempt and doing it, you're going to sit back in your chair and go "i can't use this"

then you do it over again and it will always be better. you will not ever ever do something "right" the first time

better get started now, this is all time consuming.
