Hey guys! So, to finish the Orc I’m struggling a lot… The course is really great but I guess I started to add to much complexity to my character. I know Grant (amazing instructor and methodology btw!) said to keep the character not so much different of the main reference, but I thought I would be do fine… Well, sorry by that
So now my Character has about 3 millions Tris and in some point it reached 7 millions. I was trying to create more details for the mouth so I didn’t see other way than increasing the resolution…
The problem is that even not satisfied with my character I decided to move on and start the retopology because I spent too much time redoing a lot of times the character in the session 7 (Detailed Sculpting). Anyway with the Auto Retopology i reached 55.000 Tris (too much yet but if I decrease the resolution I lost all details), before to do that I decided to remove completely the ear to redo because the auto-retopology is a mess in that area (I would need in fact increse the resolution I guess). In anyt case, to remove the ears decided to use the Box Trim tool, but my the computer just got frozen for more than 20 minutes to cut something… That’s normal? I mean, my computer is a i7-9700KF with 32GB of RAM and a G-Force 1050ti 4GB. That’s not enough to do a simple cut?
And seems the Blender is not using the GPU?
Also the thing is VERY frustrating is that, I just don’t know why, when I select some object the Blender just crashes without warnings! Then I need to reopen and I never can select that object again! I needed to redo the model SEVERAL times! Then to avoid so much rework I try to save different versions every time I do some significant change. Why to save in a different file? Well, because saving in the same file seems not enough… As said when I open the .blend I just can’t select that object in the Outliner or View Port, so basically the file seems corrupted, useless, so I need to back to a previous version and start over and over again redoing things I already had.
That’s a normal workflow?
What I’m doing so wrong to have so much problems to handle a simple character with my computer specs?
Sorry the long text and if is not clear, I’m just trying to back to a nice flow here, thanks
