the GUI (user interface) is not the most friendly, i recognize. You must have some idea of 3d stuff and maths. i'm not very with these programs as you see in school was bad at maths... I've tried changing variables at the left on the program to see what happens, so you discover what happens
ok so you fiddle around with it is what you're telling me. Sounds like something I would do anyways and yes, I am familiar with 3D software: I own Cinema4D, Maya and 3DS Max (which I haven't used yet nor Mudbox). I also own Blender but I hate that software, it's so intimidating when you look at the interface but the results are beautiful. That software was the reason why I upgraded to C4D.
Is it as difficult as Blender or easy like Bryce 1nce you follow the guides on the website?
I was doing some 3dmax in the past and used this program to export the mesh. maybe one day i post them here I've used a lot of programs in the past from Bryce, Poser, terragen etc. I agree that Blender was always a brick in my hands . I think Structure Synth is even less user-friendly as blender and i don't have used it much. Just follow you curiosity what you can lose? anyway I was always a self-taught person, and don't followed much tutorials and don't make anyone (for now) have a nice day
ahhhh I see, I figured you were just exporting the 3D obj files into other software like C4D or 3DSMax. Sounds more like TopMod except that's for meshing fractals into 3D obj but more tuts and much easier to use. I also own Terragen but haven't used it since I dl'ed it, which was back in 2008 or 09. I might have to explore that again, very awesome results with that software 1nce you know how to use it. The fact that you tell me it's less user-friendly than Blender is scaring me though homes...........
and please do post your work with the 3D modeling software. I'd like to see it. Hell maybe I should do the same, I got alot of artwork stored up and unfinished.
oh yeah, the parameters/coordinates on the left side of the display window, you can copy/paste those and put them on dA couldn't you? I've seen those same parameters for other software like Context Free Art: [link]
and here's some "game" that has the same type of format: [link] (pretty fun and easy: just draw, to change the coordinates click the edit button and a drop-down menu will appear on the left. Apparently you can save this stuff too as you can see).
Now that you see what I'm talking about is it possible to save and swap parameters to be used?
I know ContextFreeArt but never used it seriously and it's similar. Sadly i must say i've might lost the *.es file, cause many HD fails in the past, and couldn't find it I remember i've used a example called "nouveau" and changed some parameters, nothing else. If i find one, i would gladly swap it with time Anyways i'm very focused now on MD3D and it's addictive... let me know aswell
