well i know ai is a hot topic,
well all artists are faced with a rather brutal realization that without ai assistance,
you arent going to be churning out 500 high quality still variations in a single day for your client to look at,
and your maya renders at slow speed, slow modelling, non parametric stuff, sit next to your competitors ai assisted stuff…not even done in a 3d program at all…but for free access 150 images a day…
i would love to know what autodesks grand plan is to save the artists work life with the current price for illustrations
of $1 to $6 (25picture ai packs on redbubble and etsy…less 50% advert costs).
i think autodesks whole business plan for single individuals, and its non parametric non ai approach
is a total disaster that is happening right now…to the 3d artist
without a 100% parametric approach that is not bifrost,its doomed.
even the current generation of marvel movies images are looking boring to the millions of ai images being
churned out daily…
today a 3d program has to be instantaneous, text promptable,
where is mayas node to switch my building style from giger to tron to final fantasy, when it cannot even loft an even cross section pipe?
the ai tidal wave is here and at least adobe has accepted the fact…has autodesk…
i think even houdini will have to change its maths attribute workflow, its too slow.
quite simply to compete a 3d program has to switch from poly to voxel to nurb to spline patterns on the fly in a totally parametric fashion, auto update uvs at the top of the stack on the fly and go into hires sculpt, and hires paint…sort of houdini…but i can see houdini needs a text prompt …not a maths prompt.
ie you the artist sit down with maya at the start of the day with its one shot poly approach…pay extra for arnold…clocks ticking
at the end of the day you supply your maya only image…versus your competitor in leonardoai or midjourney
i know ai image makers are not animation or sculpting programs, well sorry folks, character boards are being done on them, how many views do you need for an auto 3d sculpt to be generated?,…match poses exist…
how many poses are required to text prompt animation?
i am not an ai supporter its taken say 80% of illustration work overnight…ditto retouching and comp.
well all those grand plans autodesk has for maya better appear in its next update,
as i find even blender is way too slow against an ai generator…and blender was way faster than maya.
