A cartoony valley, hope you like it.
Is there any reason to switch to Karma? Is unbelievably slow Nov. 6, 2020, 6:56 p.m.
Buying 3Delight makes no sense, SideFX already has a production CPU engine in Mantra - and SideFX clearly accepts that CPU engines are a legacy product - as SideFX has literally stated, they are not investing in their Mantra codebase anymore.
You don't even have to buy it: first license is free for commercial use And you get 1000 mins of free cloud rendering.… GPU is the future and AI has just begun its disruption in the 3D/VFX industry.
No one can really predict the futur but I don't see any disruption coming from AI and GPU on the production side of things in the medium term at least.
It's already starting, in the next 5 years we'll be surrounded by AI tools in 3D productions. One example: https://graphics.pixar.com/library/SuperResolution/ [graphics.pixar.com]
Isn't it time for some Houdini 18.5 action soon? Sept. 25, 2020, 3:37 p.m.
What in particular do you like?
I also love that hitting the keyboard letter of the axis, restricts the move/scale/rotation to that particular axis. It's such an incredible time saver and it's so intuitive that I don't understand why others don't implement such a simple thing.
This was the first thing I changed from their system back to the traditional axis/gimbal style. It's so confusing that the object does a transformation right away which you then have to restrict to the axis you want it to move. I don't want to look/think about the axis I want stuff to transform.
So you want it to transform itself. Blender does really have a more intuitive transform procedure, with CAD Transform addon it quite nice. In vanilla you can use middle mouse to transform the object in the general direction of the mouse movement or just shortcuts to restrict it by axis.
