Thanks @cgCody and @Richard_Culver for those comments
Jokes aside i didnt knew there was a purist movement here. Can’t even imagine it in a production pipeline. If so, then you are working for the software, not the other way.
Totally agree, forcing yourself to one software is more of a burden then anything else. I wouldn’t say there’s a “purist” movement, but perhaps with newer users, the “only free” desire may have them feel like only Blender is the way to go.
personally … Substance Painter and Blender is really all I need for all my projects… but on topic, I would say that if you show something off that made it in the Feature row, shouldn’t go past Blender and Substance Painter (Marvelous and ZBrush, I personally consider unnecessary)… after all it is about showing what one can do with Blender (which this community revolves around) … otherwise a project becomes Off-Topic, in my eyes.
True, something featured that used little of Blender would feel off. A lot of this community is about “what can be done with Blender,” but I feel like it’s been mostly answered, hasn’t it? Blender can do mostly anything, albeit sometimes slower in some places than others (especially some aspects of VFX, but it’s getting there).
I’m curious if admins do look at the usage of Blender when considering Featured projects.
