Cinema 4D? :)
@Felix, Gabriel , nop.. I'm a 3dsMax person :) C4D not for me.. That even rhymes :P
Hahaha it did indeed!
Anyway, it's a rocking model you have here, sir. Congrats! ;)
Thanks ! Wait till you see the finished one then ! :D
hey, I have an intuos4.. how well does it work with 3d programs? for what kind of things do you use it? sculpting?
3 months ago
@Daniel Keller, i love my intuos ! I use it daily, and have totally ditched the mouse for it.. I assigned the front click of the pen to middle click, and have unleashed all the functionality that i need for using 3ds max. I still have my keyboard nearby (not really used to the express keys), with the intuos, i am now faster in 3ds max day-to-day tasks... And when i switch to photoshop for texturing, i feel myself like at home.
And yes, it's super useful for Zbrush sculpting.
Give it a try man
that sounds really great! thanks for the advice..
what kind of pc / mac do you use? specs?
I need a new pc for 3d, and going to buy one soon.
I'd use it heavily for design, gaming, music production. so windows 8 is mandatory. my top 1 choice right now is Dell Alienware X51 with a 27" AOC monitor. that machine is a beast, and it's small too. and AOC has beautiful monitors, discovered those recently.
do you think that's a good choice for 3D production?
Alienware.. Well, i have mixed thoughts about it. We had one at the studio that i worked in, it was the slowest between all. Plus its case is made of plastic, not good.
As for the monitor, AOC is super awesome ! Plus they have a competitive price.
I advise you to tailor your own rig (seek help of a professional IT to assemble it all for you ).
Here are the best specs that i advise you to go with. It will cost you around 1700$, but you will build a PC that can handle anything you throw at it. But maybe it's more than you are planning to spend.
Get an i7 3820 CPU, it's faster than 3770K (don't get fooled by the 3.8 GHz vs 3.9 GHz thing, 3820 is better).. But maybe price-wise 3770k is better for you.
Any rams would be fine as long as you have at least 16 gigs. (cheap)
It is better to have a GTX 680 than a Quadro GPU for two reasons.
1- It's much cheaper, 2- It outperforms the Quadro in hardcore gaming (not tested, relying on my reads)
( The GT cards in the alienware wont take you far in 3d packages )
Have an SSD in ur rig, this improves experience and no more "stopped responding issues" (depends on the $$ u plan to spend)
I work on a laptop btw, lol.
So if you seek ultimate portability, buy the HP DV6 envy laptop, and it will give you all what you need (maybe a bit less gaming on 1920x1080)
@Ali well well, it really depends on how old that pc is and what kind of specs it had.
my budget is around $1400, if I can I would prefer to not have a huge case under my desk. but it's always in my room, so I don't need a laptop!
I checked the highest/best model of the alienware X51 out for 1400 CHF (around $1400), it has a i7-3770, GTX660 1.5GDDR5, 3.4 GHz, 1TB space, 16Gb Ram, no SSD tho,
but they say it handles 50 frames per second on Full HD.
for that price I think it's an pretty awesome deal.. or not?
later on I can still replace the graphics card with a GTX680 or a newer one.. an Nvidia Geforce is obviously the best choice!
but is a GTX660 really not enough for 3D? I mean, I have no clue, but it sounds so similar to GTX680 lol.
I'd really have to check out 1 or 2 IT shops and ask for a price to build one! and maaybe pay more, but those $300 could be invested in the monitor instead.
my 9 yro laptop broke. my current pc can't even handle illustrator longer than 1 hour, or play 2 youtube videos at once... lol.
There is a rule in life :P If you want that alienware, you better get it, because if you listen to me and buy a tower PC, it will definitely break, and you will curse me till the end of my days :P
Go Alienware ! Lol, there were laptops 9 years ago ? :P (time flies so quick !)
lol yea, I'm going to ask an IT person, cause I'm so confused now if it's a good or bad choice.
but then again, how would they even know if it's good enough for 3D... let's just say I can still stock it up if I need a better gfx card and go with X51. good, done. :P
No confusion. I am currently working on an architectural visualization of a micro city (yes, CITY) for the UAE. My scene has hit 50,000,000 polygons, but i can still work easily. And guess what, im using this: http://www.shopping.hp.com/en_US/home-office/-/static/page-envydv6
...So to say, the alienware will easily outperform my laptop :P
thanks! now I'm sure! the specs of the best HP gaming rig are similar to the Alienware x51, but it has an AMD radeon gfxcard, and that tower is huuge..
that DV6 notebook looks beautiful and has a very good price, if I change my mind and buy a laptop, that's definetely the one.
thank you for your huge advice and time!
50 million polygons, a whole city? sounds really amazing!
You're welcome ! Cheers ! And good luck dude !
