Saw this person telling people to go away for a respectful disagreement🤷‍♂️. So I want to elaborate on it with reasons

Here's a thread about why Blender's agnostic Selection mode -> Operator system can be good, fast, and is purposely designed. #b3d

Hope you all find it helpful.
Long story short, you can:

Use mass selection tools from one type to execute operators for another type without switching modes

Execute operators that work with multiple types

Convert and combine between selection types

Rely on predictable knowledge of what types are made of
Simplest example. To make this letter 2D you delete vertices. Selecting them by selecting the face is the fastest way to do it (count the actions). Vertices can even be out of view. That equivalence, face = vertices, reliably tells me the vertices are selected

Cinematic Lighting course for Blender is about to receive a large (and free) extension pack. Lighting the night scenes is never going to be the same. 😜

Here's a few important facts about it (a thread 🧵🔽) #b3d


Its first chapter features the character model donated to our cause by no other than @w_landgren ! It's licensed under Creative Commons and thus we have a green light to show our night lighting shenanigans using this central #b3d character so to speak.

It adds almost +50% of the content to the original Cinematic Lighting course! It's a hefty extension in other words!

#UnityTips: 🔥 Fluid 'simulation' trail shader. 🫧

Inspired by a #b3d node animation. [U]V gradient masks control the colour/alpha/width over trail. ✨

('fluid' is 100% rendered in the shader)

In glorious, full screen 1080p. 🤩
A still of the node graph. Have a look: 👀📊

We always get asked: "How do I generate income with my Blender skills?"

Here is our answer 👇 (a thread) Image
Option 1: Start your own YouTube channel.

Yes, there's a lot of competition, but also high demand. Blender is growing faster than ever.

5-10 minute beginner-friendly videos will always be, the best way to learn is to teach 🧑‍🎓 Image
Option 2: Start freelancing.

Friends & family are often a great first source of mini-jobs.

For official job postings, check @BlenderArtists, @BlenderNation, @ArtStationHQ or @RemoteGameJobs. Image

👉#Blender + #ControlNet prototype. Pose any character (I'm using Mixamo) right in Blender, hit F12, Booooooom! You don't have to leave Blender now, using A1111 in the background. #AIart #stablediffusion #b3d #aigirls
just a quick share, will opensource when i finish these messy codes.😉

Blender Scripting / DUNDERS IN BLENDER 🔮

A thread 👇🏻

#b3d #blender #blendercommunity #Python #pythonprogramming #script
Blender's Python API lets you manipulate data like objects, materials, etc. in a blend file.

But, have you ever wondered what would happen if you called the add operator (+) on two objects?

Or when you multiply (*) an object by a number?
Of course, Blender would throw an error saying unsupported operand types. 🙂

But, if you think about it, whenever you call an operator like the + operator, Python is calling the respective double underscore method.

In this case, it will call the __add__ method.

Had an idea for carboard style DNA / proteins using, which actually turned out super well. Combines @SouthernShotty's crafty asset pack with #molecularnodes so you get the cool aesthetic with the control of a 3D rig and scientifically accurate data #b3d
@SouthernShotty @this_clockwork I feel like this is right up your alley
@SouthernShotty @this_clockwork EEVEE is the best it just renders so quickly

I can now load _basically_ every atom from an entire bacterial cell, into #blender3d and #geometrynodes via #molecularnodes. Each macromolecule is down to atomic detail where available via CellPack, totalling ~250,000,000 points, all rendering (quite quickly) in Cycles #b3d A 3D rendering of the inside of a Mycoplasma Genitaliam cell
Again this is the fabulous dataset from CellPack ( by @MartinaMaritan
@MartinaMaritan I'm very much looking forward to making some cool animations now that I it's all inside of and manipulateable by #geometrynodes. @JacquesLucke this isn't quite on the scale of the human cells in the Blender HQ, but it's getting pretty close!

1/ Dozens were lost at Melilla's Barrio Chino border crossing on 24 June, but why?

Today @LHreports & partners release an investigation reconstructing the event, making use of a detailed 3d model of the crossing. In this thread, I'll break down our development & use of the model
2/ Since the summer, we have been working with @el_pais @derspiegel @lemondefr @EnassMedia on this investigation on this horrific day on the Spanish/Moroccan border over the summer
3/ Step one in our investigation was archiving visual evidence. We collected 100+ videos from open source channels and received unpublished material from press & private sources.

Over several months, we geolocated the clips and sequenced them chronologically.

Hey, thank you y’all! Feeling incredibly lucky for all the reactions.

Thanks again to @jsngr & everyone at @diagram for let me play with this. Mad ❤️.

Here are my favs. And I’ll share some tips and the process, so you get a better idea. 1/n #b3d ImageImageImageImage
Ok, first, these renders were made in fact with @Blender. #b3d is amazing, you should learn how to use it. Is powerful, is open source and multi-platform.

As @andrewpprice (Blender Guru), sometimes the you'll just need to stick to the Principled material.

2/n ImageImageImageImage
The Principled BSDF is like a toolkit. Blender generalized the most complex scenarios on this versatile shader.

Tweak the IOR (Index of Refraction) to and see how light will changes directions.

By adding a color gradient to the lighting setup, I'm half way there.

Aaand another tree ! Used a different method here but still using #geometrynodes
#b3d #bnpr
Here are the nodes ! The second one is within the LeavesWind groups ImageImage
Oh and don't forget to get the UVs back in the leaves shader (mixed with 2 noises here to add variety) Image

Day 260 of #Blender3d| #b3d

I generated an image using #stablediffusion and #DALLE 2

I put the image into #ICON to turn it into a 3D model.

Then I used #mixamo to animate the model. (Then did a little extra thing with Blender) Details below!
How I did it:
1️⃣ Generate Image Using @playground_ai which has both #DALLE & #stablediffusion.

I chose stable diffusion.

1/ As soon as StableDiffusion landed we dropped everything to build a GENIE! 🧞‍♂️

2/ Shopping is hard when you want something specific but aren’t sure where to find it. New models from @StabilityAI and @OpenAI can create a detailed image of anything you can imagine, so skip searching — ask for exactly what you want and print it on-demand! 🖨🌽
3/ The patterns in our prototype were created using the prompts you hear in the video and the tiling technique we developed. Each frame of animation is a real step of the generation process. You’re watching StableDiffusion dream in real time 💭👀
