I'm trying to follow this guide to duplicate my tree a bunch of times using emitter particles, but I'm having trouble making it where trees show up instead of the default particles.
Does anyone know a fix?"

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==641927 && dateTime=="09/14/18(Fri)00:29:16")

In the render section of the particle menu. Click object. Why use emitter instead of hair?"

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==641928 && dateTime=="09/14/18(Fri)01:37:53")

It's a bit different in practice, but yes it's similar
In this video, she's essentially bisecting the mesh and forming a closed loop, which makes other operations convenient (like connecting closed loops), but what I'm looking for is more like drawing open line segments (and those line segments are probably like Bezier curves) on top of a mesh that eventually intersect each other.

Intersections that form a closed loop will probably form something like a NURBS surface.

Actually this is the closest to what I was thinking of. The Retopoflow 2.0 addon is very close with its poly strip tool and ability to turn multiple unconnected meshes into a single retopologized mesh.

My understanding, when it comes to drawing disjoint curves which snap to the mesh, would make it possible to indicate the "most important" elements of topological flow that edge loops would be forced to follow, and then you could simply derive or have an algorithm do the rest.
The elements I'm referring to are poles, folds and creases (epicanthal, nasolabial, ...), and transitions between soft and skeletal features (ribcages)

But maybe Retopoflow's polystrips and other tools would be easier. Who knows."

You can draw guide lines for an algorithm in every good automatic retopology algorithm - but Blender doesn't have such a retopology algorithm I am aware of, not even as a plugin. In ZBrush, 3D-Coat and modo you draw just a few lines as you describe, then click retopology and the algorithm will try its best to force edge flow along those lines while producing nice quad topology.

The Instant Meshes algorithm ( works the same way basically (as I said, modo implements Instant Meshes now).
The Instant Meshes application actually gives you the finest degree of control because it was implemented by the researchers - you generate a parametrization first (the colorful lines on the left) and can then place guides (the green line) and also move individual singularities (pole vertices - the dots) to force a specific field flow and decide how to joint edge loops that cross each other at an angle. Then you do the same thing with a "position field" which is like a closer representation of what the result will be that you can fine tune, which will then mostly be subdivided as I understand."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==641945 && dateTime=="09/14/18(Fri)06:03:21")

Sure. You just model what's in the drawing, set your camera to have the same projection properties as the view in the drawing, then project your drawing as a texture and add lighting
But for simple cases it's easier to just use a 2D depth map/normal map and run a shader on it for lighting, you can do that in Photoshop, Krita, perhaps even GIMP"

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==641981 && dateTime=="09/14/18(Fri)11:17:36")

production anime studios tend to do the opposite; 3d scene first, drawings later or superimposed on top of the lighting, and I've never once seen them combine computed lighting on top of hand-drawn assets.

Probably because by the time you model it and compute the lighting there isn't a whole lot you can do to make it not look CG."

In the render tab there is a Bake section.
For Blender Render, you need to have a target texture applied to the polygons in edit mode.
For Cycles, you need to have a material with an image texture in the node tree, click on that node to set it as target texture.
You can bake almost anything.
Note that if you want to bake something that's not "standard", you can set up a node system in Cycles for it and then bake that
Like if you wanted to bake pointiness map, you could put a geometry info node to an emission shader and bake emission"

Use particles? E.g. set the vine as the particle emitter and the leaves as the emitted/hair object?

Appreciate the input. I have no idea how particles work in Blender but I tried using the FiberMesh function in Zbrush to generate a series of flat uv planes to mediocre results.

Don't know about such an addon but you can write custom shaders in OSL which would allow you to create such nodes. There aren't a huge number of OSL shaders online but many things can be translated from GLSL/HLSL examples (you can't access light data in OSL but it shouldn't matter in this case)

"Hey lads, first time using blender (or any 3d modelling software). I think I'm getting the hang of it, but I've run into an issue. It looks like in certain parts of the model there are multiple vertices, edges and faces occupying the same space. It's kind of hard to explain in words since I don't understand blender and 3D too well but hopefully pic related will clear it up.

Is there a way to make all vertices merge if they occupy the same coordinate? Also how should I go about avoiding this mistake in the future. Pretty sure it came from removing and adding faces to lower the amount of polys."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==643727 && dateTime=="09/27/18(Thu)22:47:00")

Remove doubles. Alternatively, if the coordinates aren't exactly the same, use the merge function. I'm not too sure what your workflow is here, so can't provide any tips.

Yikes, that doesn't look too good. I suggest following some tutorials on simple box modelling, you should be able to find plenty of them on youtube or whatever. The faces on those arms are "inverted", by the way. They have their normals facing inwards, which is why they're shaded strange and blue-grey. Proper models should always have their normals facing outwards. You can correct that with one click by finding the recalculate normals function."

if the distortions persist, delete the vertex and remake the polygons with fill face,fill edge or you can subdivide an edge to have an extra vertex by click W > subdivide on an vertex. all of these functions can be found in the search menu (spacebar)

there is another way to find those pesky vertex and is to activate the "limit selection to visible" button in edit mode."

that's method is "hacky". i hate using it.

before you paint, there are several things you need to do.

1. make sure your UV shells are not overlapping or very close to eachother, make some space in your UV map or simply push the island margin slider once you finish unwrapping.

2.before you texture anything go to texture paint options and increase the bleed from 2px to 8px"

here's the answer from their faq:
BPainter does not support painting on multiple layers at once. It had a working prototype, but it did have a lot of limitations due to blenders internal design. Thats the reason why it is not build in and only a proof of concept.
But BPainter offers a nice design to reuse existing textures an manipulate them so they can be used as specular or roughness input.

I did some more searching and found out that you can't add actions to boids like at all. You can only do the whole, group thing.
Honestly it just seems like a cop-out solution. Boids overall seem to be way underdeveloped and more of an afterthought. The ability to automatically pick animated actions based on certain parameters like speed and direction seems like something simple to have. I'm sure Houdini has it.

the particle system only allows you to spit a random number of things into the scene, and perhaps randomize them.

what i would do is create 4 birds all with their unique animation, then use the particle system to randomize their location so it won't seem obvious when u see a hundred birds on the screen coordinating movements. let them follow a path curve and travel it, maybe use multiple layers if it bogs down the viewport"

That's kind of exactly what I'm doing. I'm doing a scene where I'll render out a bunch of different flocks of birds separately so I can overlay them on to a scene whenever I want. I've used boids before in a way that looks alright, but all of the birds are flapping and that's it, so they never looked weird. I could always just have the new ones constantly flap, but I figured I'd try to make them glide at certain times for added realism. I had hoped I could create different actions/states (flapping, gliding, etc) and the boid system could pick appropriate actions based on whatever the particle was doing.

>what i would do is create 4 birds all with their unique animation, then use the particle system to randomize their location so it won't seem obvious when u see a hundred birds on the screen coordinating movements.
I don't know if I'm understanding this right. You mean just have them be an emit particle and just follow a curve? In my head it doesn't seem to be any different than the boids, and the boids at least all have unique pathing.
It still doesn't really solve the problem of having them all be at different flight intervals and picking different animations.

I figure I'd just be better off duplicating the group another time and just offsetting the animations again for more variance."

"Hey guys I am new to 3D modeling and I have a model that I was sculpting, but now part of it is inside fucking out and I have no good way to fix this without doing it manually, and it's a serious headache. I tried remove doubles, I tried calculating the inside/outside normals, it's not working basically. What do?";

If I'm not wrong, there's a built-in addon for 3D printing in Blender that you can use to solve these problems. The function you're looking for's named something like make mesh manifold, where it basically gets rid of all internal faces and tries to make all face normals point outwards."

the quads seems stretched on the left, you can tell that happens on the right model with those tris at the knuckles"

Look into using shapekeys. I'm not an expert, but I don't really think you need to animate this with bones.
Just set a base shapekey for it's default pose, then go into edit mode and proportionally edit it into different positions; one with it's mouth open, another stretching, some pulsate, and blend between them for the different actions.
Again, I'm not an expert on shapekeys as I don't really use them that much, but you should be able to overlay them on top of one another as well. So you could have it stretch and pulsate at the same time, or other things like that. Then again you might not be able to. One of those things you'll just have to find out."

"Anyone have any help for this strange problem? Whenever I minimize blender, and reopen it, it closed! If I were to hover over it the things still show tooltips but I can't go into it or else it will instantly close. The only solutions I tried were changing the window display mode because that's all I could find. Help appreciated";

Not sure wtf you're saying. I once changed between my Nvidia card to Radeon and had Blender crash constantly because the driver Ubuntu had was shit. I switched back to cringevidia with fake amount of ram (970
RAM gate) and it worked OK."

"how the fuck can I get a sphere inside a larger sphere to collide with the inner walls? I want them both to be soft bodies (like an amphibious egg) but the inner sphere always fucks its way out of the larger sphere. I've tried every fucking number, checkbox and setting available. I have collision turned on for both. What is my retarded ass doing wrong?";

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==646219 && dateTime=="10/17/18(Wed)19:09:08")

Issue with the normals, I'd guess. Big one has to have its normals facing inwards to properly collide with something inside it."

Yes. I've never been a fan of it despite being fullblooded Ukrainian (don't like the texture), but the taste is okay and the bread is fantastic."
