Can we use gradients, shadows or any other layer styles ?
not much the point of a sprite now is it ? (there’s a handy movie clip included) I don’t think it’s not allowed, but it will certainly affect the size, and you’ll have less control over adjusting it manually.
To give you a quick answer : http://3docean.net/forums/thread/cinema-4d-newer-version-support/80004
locking this up as I think we should direct our cumulative anger towards that thread
This isn’t exactly a “startup” anymore now is it? I mean yes, the way it began, but it slowly turned into a full-fledged company, with all good and bad things that come with it, such as support times, increase in employee counts, huge amount of passive income, high costs and profits. Now it’s up to you to order them between good and bad based on the replies within this thread, and that while keeping in mind that companies, as opposed to startups who base their success on hype and a good product alone, have to work much much harder to maintain their userbase happy, and a bit less gaining new business as that happens passively when the userbase is happy enough to talk about it. Food for thought.
crozer saidAmin to that. All of it. Mostly the last part though .
That said, in my opinion 3DOcean has a tough surface above its head. Studios and agencies, and users alike, will rather get a product from an established marketplace (like the aforementioned), or model something on their own, instead of buying one from 3DOcean. Furthermore, 3DOCean is barely known because advertising of it is practically null.
Oh well… if one were to wonder why I have “issues” with this, I can anytime in reply question the reasoning behind just putting yet another product to the Marketplace portfolio, only in the hopes of filling an already over-filled niche (unlike with the case of TF / AD and even AJ at the time of their respective creation.)
Hell, actually, I can’t find any other product in the Envato portfolio that targetted a more unfriendly market in terms of competition and that while at the lowest end in terms of publicity and growth initiative…
Thinking a bit further, maybe a rebranding to HdriHill or something might prove to be more productive > less time wasted reviewing models that don’t sell > less frustration creating said models > more time / interest for the general public to consider creating hdri files and panoramas > the sales speak for such a self-moderation towards that target market, where do you add that this would indeed be a “niche” unlike trying to bring a knife to a sword-party thinking you’re special (i.e. small, insignificant, and… serving a purpose long covered by “better tools” )
