  1. 3D-Coat 4.7 (Beta testing thread)

    Hey I dunno if there's already a feature request for this but 'facing ratio' masking is sorely missing and btw the fixed Extract depth along Y is very useful, using to generate tiling disp/color/roughness maps here at Animal Logic
  2. can 3d coat export uv sets as udims for Mari?

    Each UV tile must be a 'UV set' in 3dcoat. The basic workflow: import your obj and make sure "Import Tiles as UV Sets" is on in the UV room in the set dropdown you'll see 1001, 1002 etc for each of your UDIM tiles. go to File/Export Objects and Textures check "Export UV Sets as Tiles" you'll get textures for each UV tile. The name of the UV set will be used in the exported file name of the map. If, when you apply these output textures, you find that the UDIM number in the files don't match to the correct UV tiles (1001 -> u 0, v 0, 1002 -> u 1 v 0 etc), you have to rename the sets in the UV room, by clicking on the set drop down, and choosing rename.
  3. can 3d coat export uv sets as udims for Mari?

    Unfortunately they will get numbered incorrectly, so you'll have to go into the UV editor and rename each tile to it's correct UDIM.
  4. V4.5 BETA (experimental)

    I've had similar problems with undo and crashing, in my case they turned out to be related to where 3dcoat was storing it's working files. Had to set the directory to a local drive using the environment variable COAT_FILES_PATH . This was on a linux machine so not sure if relevant to your problem.

    TYPO in new release video on YouTube: Lightening should be Lighting
  6. These are great suggestions.
  7. V4.5 BETA (experimental)

    Please don't remove right-mouse dragging of texture placement! Moving the texture placement with right mouse is far faster than using the gizmo. Right mouse: Click-drag vs Gizmo: Move mouse to gizmo, click-drag A small difference like this adds up over thousands of actions.

    I tried this, but I only have Windows at home, not Linux and was unable to reproduce the bug. If I get time at work I'll try to create a test scene that reproduces the error.
  9. V4.5 BETA (experimental)

    Thanks but I can't send files from the studio. It's a multi-layer multi-tile asset, about 7GB file size. Merge down works ok, but Merge visible crashes every time. I suspect it's got to do with layer masks.
  10. V4.5 BETA (experimental)

    Merging paint layers is crashing every single time.
  11. V4.5 BETA (experimental)

    Flood fill is not getting all UV shells across all tiles, it's filling across most but not missing a couple.
  12. V4.5 BETA (experimental)

    Applying changes to UVs or texture resolution in the latest beta has become very slow - even for a single mesh with 2k map it takes more than 5 minutes on Xeon workstation with 32 threads.
  13. V4.5 BETA (experimental)

    Also the 'low smooth shade' mode is very useful for painting and would be great to have back.
  14. V4.5 BETA (experimental)

    This is right. It's one of the best features in 3dcoat - you don't lose any paint work or have to do any manual transferring if you decide you need to change your UVs while painting. I agree that hitting Apply is easy to forget, but having the changes automatically apply to the mesh is not necessarily what you want either.
  15. Looks like it! This is so awesome. The only way we can get film-resolution characters is with dozens of 4k maps, and having visible seams was really making life difficult.
