Default 3d and music?

Hey I'm new here,
I was wondering if you can possibly be 3d artist and also know how to play instruments and create music? What I mean is can your main job be a music engineer/producer and but also spend some time learning 3d, I don't mean like becoming the best 3d artist. Can you be good at both?
Thanks!

Of course. You could be a sewage truck driver, and good at music.

You are only entitled to do one thing in life. You cannot do both.

Sidewinder's choice was trolling. The theory is that for one to truly understand rock, one must become one.

(and damn, writing sentences without using a gender specific word can be difficult).

Regarding the actual question: there's a high probability that the two could be combined quite effectively: Music and art have always been closely intertwined, the creation of artistic displays which combine new 3D artistry with music which emulates and synchronises with the visual art is certainly a possibility, if it doesn't already exist. There have been composers and artists who associated colours with certain tones, after all!

You're into 3D stuff?

What program do you use?

do you people REALLY not ever leave the front of your computers?

music and visuals have been running hand in hand for decades.

from the time 3d graphic technology was commercially available it's been used with music. either in video or on stage. eventually you need to choose which aspect will be the profession and which will be the hobby but that's still an entirely personal decision.


though realistically you're FAR more likely to pay your bills by doing some sort of crappy 3d web work than you are from producing music.

I meant with reference to whatever he/she was planning to do. 3D effects as an accompaniment to music certainly exists, but I, for example, haven't ever been to an art exhibition on 3D visuals synchronised with music. As far as I am concerned, I have yet to witness a true synergy of the two.

Didn't The Residents explore this quite extensively in the 90s?

Of course you can be good at two different things, the problem is that often you need to be insanely driven to be awesome at pretty much anything. That kind of drive is rare and when seen it usually focuses on ONE thing until that ONE thing is mastered. So if the point is to be great (and I hope that would always be the goal) sometimes it is better to focus like a laser beam on that one thing.

Bruce ****inson writes books, is a fencer, is a pilot, and one of my favorite singer's, but he is he and you is you, so no.
