pssst Blender does fluid simulations

When I open Blender, my whole body shakes violently and I feel sick to my stomach and dizzy.  shock

The UI makes me want to run out the door screaming, absolutely no part of it is intuitive, and the learning curve is like climbing the Alps. big surprise

That said, it’s pretty powerful, but honestly if I really want it that bad, I’ll pay the $99 for Houdini Apprentice HD and be done with it. confused

I’ve tried Blender over and over and over and we just do NOT get along at all.

ah interesting,  did not know about the free trial version… downloading it now.

Yeah - Apprentice is a great way to learn, and HD is good for producing portfolio pieces.  Best VFX deal if you’re not planning on selling your work. smile

The video tutorials are nice as well, lots of free stuff to get you started.

New code today. woop. long face

I see they are clearing out the bug track. I got a notice about my gripe about unsorted parameters from, get this, 16 months ago. Love the solution “works as intended”. Took them 16 months to come to this conclusion? And typical for DAZ “works as intended” means poorly.

And for those dancing a jig because they see movement in the bug tracker, please remember DAZ clears out he bug tracker periodically, doesn’t mean anything is being done with carrara.

you got news then - now for the big announcement !!!!!!!!!!
coming today rolleyes

SMITH MICRO TO PURCHASE CARRARA!! shock shock shock

..or something like that.. raspberry

ah HD you are paying for a yearly license, still works out to less than $10 a month provided its $99 a year for the license, and not the $325 for the workstation seat…

Now for a brief intermission.

We had sort of a blizzard here yesterday, 10” in 6 hours. Snow hasn’t fallen around here like that for a long time. I was having connectivity issues so got in to playing with carrara. A fairly simple staging, but it’s wasn’t like I just sat here and worked on it lol
This is about as stock a render as it gets, Just HDRI for lighting. Most of the time was spent fussing with V4 textures on genesis; I get a seem at the thigh every time. High rez elite texture with bump. Low rez render.

Hi Stan smile

I get a seem at the thigh every time. High rez elite texture with bump. Low rez render.

is this in the C8.5 beta ?

if so,...  try changing the texture map mode from “Fast mip-map” back to sampling.

I had a similar issue lately because the intensity of the spec maps were different in the two zones.  I was using the Lana texture.

Texture room, look in the texture shader, where you would choose maps and such.

These are not the tutorials you’re looking for. Move along.

Hmm, five days to go.

And DAZ missed their usual announcement-scheme (ten minutes before office closing time on a friday afternoon).

This is going to be exciting ... smile
