Why not learn both?
That’s my point. Why not learn both?
But every single time I suggest in any thread that people learn the “other way”, the non-automatic, non-software approach, which requires some actual learning and maybe having to delve into some science, all I get in return is arrogance and arguments in favor of the automatic software approach. Always. Nobody is interested in learning both, they only want the easy way out. Always. You know that, I know that.
Which is evident by you addressing this post to me, not the other guy. He gets defensive about his position, but you think I’m the one that needs to behave. You guys are so insanely biased against anything I say that you automatically support the other guy. And in the process people who really want to learn stuff get the idea that learning this stuff is for dorks and poindexters, and the really cool people use the cool software approach.
Yes, learn both. Exactly. But to do that you have to ACTUALLY LEARN BOTH, and support each other in learning both. Get it? Which means you have to actually discuss and investigate both approaches, instead of automatically shutting down those you don’t like.
Dude, you’re a master at this stuff, right? Why don’t you post some tutorials showing how to get some great results using simulated GI? That would be a lot more helpful than telling me to behave.
Fist off, I never said I was a master. I said I try to simulate GI, and sometimes I get good results. I’m getting more consistent and each time it takes less time. I have posted many suggestions regarding GI in this thread alone and have received plenty of rebuffs from you claiming my suggestions aren’t relevant or were obvious. Maybe I should go into a rant like you would, and lament the fact that the world is too stupid to understand my obvious and exclusive genius?
Secondly, he’s explaining his viewpoint as to why he doesn’t understand why people fake it. Nowhere did I read that you shouldn’t learn it. Obviously he has a different experience and opinion. I didn’t read it as defensive. But then again, there was another post I read that was definitely defensive. (see below).
Lastly, how many times have you typed a variation of:
That’s what I love about the Carrara forum. We’ll get a bunch of people actually arguing AGAINST learning what you’re doing. It’s just mind boggling.
It’s not my place to tell you to behave, but if you keep making insulting blanket statements about people on this forum, such as I’ve quoted from, then I’ll keep rolling my eyes and saying, there he goes again….
