Does anyone give a shit about piracy anymore?

I've been constantly reporting one particular channel to YouTube, pretty much weekly but also reporting every video that's uploaded for containing illegal content. They're effectively showing people how to pirate switch games and play them on PC and as the emulator improves it will only become more popular.

This is the channel


As you can see they have several videos not only advertising this fucking emulator, but also guides on how to set it up. Does Google not give a shit about this?

Emulation itself isn't illegal in most places. So as long as they don't directly link to copyrighted code (games, dlc, bios files, etc.) there's very little reason for Youtube to care.

I've been emailing RMS. (Regarding the GCC plugins, etc)
RMS isn't going to do anything about GRSecurity because Bradly Kuhn, a non-lawyer who stabbed RMS in the back recently
, said nothing can be done.

What the FUCK?

RMS says "No evidence right?" and "I'm not part of the FSF anymore" and "wasn't it agreed that nothing could be done?"
There is in-writing evidence:
Has he forgotten about this:
Has he ever heard of "Discovery"?
Subpoena the customer list,
then subpoena the customers.

I told him the contributors to the FSF codebase should sue to recover their copyrights on the basis of fraud in the inducement then.

Why are these free-software people such fucking FAGGOTS that WONT SUE?

(And yes: you can recover donations to organizations that misuse your donation / don't do what you've instructed in atleast NY and California)

Bradly Kuhn is NOT A LAWYER: he's just a FAGGOT with a Bachelors degree, RMS BELIEVES HIM, and ignores actual lawyers. Is RMS a senile idiot?

The sensible way is to film it on a green screen stage. Knowing that people, this is probably isolated from some other, existing footage. Tedious roto'ing by hand.

>> No.725725

Setting up a small green screen on a staircase, isolating the subject. Film whatever you intent to film. Then do 3d tracking on the footage to get the camera movement. Export into 3D software of your choice. Rebuild your staircase/background. Texture it with the appropriate textures from MC. Match the lighting to look like it does in the game. Render to sequence. Don't forget to grab the smoke sprites from game and do an element/pass for the particles. The rest is a job for whatever composition tool you use. Easy peasy, but I don't see the point. Is this what zoomers consider entertainment?

because once i port it to sfm it can be ported easier to other source games(also sfm has some silly stuff like warped bodies). but you have a very good point. i can make them dance already in unity while im stuck in sfm. but one of my other problem is i can't record them, do you have any recommendations on a recording software?

This, but unironically. Unity is an excellent choice if you wanna build a system like this. Thing to understand is that unity is only powerful if you can code advanced systems yourself, it's not a toy but a fully fledged game engine.

I'm using Maya, Max and Blender on a daily basis
and in my opinion every software has it's strenght in different

Regarding blender... just try it, it's free

In terms of autodesk software:

1: with a classic polygon modelling workflow max shits on everything i've used, it's greatest strength is that it's non destructive since it uses a modifier stack, if you wanna do anything modelling related max can do it.

Maya on the other hand excels in everything that is related to rigging and animation, in my opinion the only real modelling related advantage maya has over max in terms of modelling would be if you're going for a nurbs related workflow f.e. automotive modelling.

But generally speaking if you just wanna do models you'll be fine with any software anyways.

What do you like about blender?

>> No.725747

There is literally no reason not to try Blender. It's fucking free. You can download it right now and have it running in seconds.

I would advise any and every beginner to do that, simply for that reason alone.

Maya, Max and Zbrush are all good and they all do one or more things better than Blender and which one is the 'best' will depend on what you are modelling, but Blender is an excellent general purpose 3D modelling program. It isn't massively specialized for poly modelling like Max, it isn't specialized for animation like Maya, and it isn't massively specialized for sculpting like Zbrush.

But it is very capable of doing all of those things with high quality results. Honestly, with 2.8, sculpting is just as good as Zbrush for most things. Only an experienced 3D artist would reap the benefits of using Zbrush over Blender as things are right now.

oh okay, nice. why a NUC?

and it looks like Blender 2.79, I don't recommend you use it.

>> No.725528

I got a NUC because I was looking for a desktop with the highest specs I could get off Amazon and this was it -- which I found pretty bizarre considering it's so small.
I use public searx. Meta-searx actually. I don't use it so often anymore, for most things I just use Google instead. Botnet be damned, it works, and other shit kinda doesn't. Searx itself for instance just gives me a timeout or 404 half the time, I think I should probably stop using meta and switch to a single instance.
That's blender 2.82, is there a more up-to-date version? I just upgraded my system recently, maybe the most up-to-date version isn't in the repos yet, later today I'll have to see if there's an official blender overlay I can get it from. I actually don't really know shit about 3d modeling as you can probably see. I just fuck around with it sometimes and make disgusting abominations like pic related.

yes famalam these are all artworks and were amazing back then.
Listen tho:
these were also tech demos, which a lot of art still is. There is a common joke that a lot of artists and art studios rush to the newest available production methods to remain 'avant-garde'. The real question with these types of work is, are they written well? Do they remain relevant? whats the emotional value after the tech impact lost its appeal? As with everything, none of this is static.
Plus, these were never integrated into the post-modern art market, they were made for a more global audience, to amaze, and turn profit somehow.

>> No.725506

Yes, because it's a technical achievement. Remember, you stand on the shoulders of giants. No one ever had it that easy to create great and compelling 3D art, so you have no excuse to mess up.

Yeah, except that Blender would be stuttering and shitting the bed with the amount of polygons and objects on screen. The vegetation alone would kill it. Same for C4d and Modo.
I know it's a tough pill to swallow, but you need a tool which has a responsive viewport even if there are several hundred if not a thousand objects in the scene. And Blender, Modo, C4d do not belong to this category.

>> No.725447

Clarisse and Katana are the industry solutions for final scene layout, shading, lighting and rendering of gigantic scenes.
Katana is completely node-based and unnecessary complex IMHO (for an single artist).
Clarisse is piss easy to understand, it renders billions/trillions of polygons while using less RAM than the average DCC and it is perfectly usable as an single artist.

3DsMax and Houdini are the top dogs when it comes to the classic DCC's.

I mean to be fair, for Blender there's some neat plugins like Tissue and Scatter that are pretty useful for architectural stuff and making city layouts.
Also the modifiers make it pretty easy to iterate and make buildings "parametrically" (obviously it's not all procedural). You could model entire buildings in whatever dimensions you want with a few clicks (provided you've got the top/bottom and middle pieces).

Though it really does shit the bed with complex scenes. Once you start hitting 2-3m polys it starts to slow down noticeably.
