  1. Saving Image in smart mat

    When adding a Image/Photo .jpg in smart material (Color) is there a way too save/copy (Pack) the image into 3dc (that smart mat your making) . As my Ext. HD is on/off and some are there. Kinda like in Blender you can Save image packed in the .blend file as to not lose it or go searching for it. I have know idea how 3dc connects/reference the photo/image. thanks for your time.
  2. Seperating paint objects question

    In Maya just give the model different Material to the parts you want isolated (name them as to help you in 3dc Mat_wing) . they should come up in the Paint Room with Surface Material > then just turn them on /off. Or use paint bucket tool that will also have surface mat. Hope it is what your asking about.
  3. Pinch me and tell me this isn't real! Andrew please read!

    Just wondering which version your using ? (I am using ver. 4.7.07 stable) I Have been using this program a few years and it takes a while to get it . I also get aggravated almost every time I use it but just use it for what works for you and expand out. I for one like it when one speaks there mind I do not see it as good or bad right or wrong just your opinion and I respect that . 3DC is pushing forward adding a new thing and breaking others then fixing them such is Beta. I myself would rather have a less Latest and Greatest and a full stop and just fine tune what we have now . It is a great program just keep at it .Heck it took me 3 years to get the hang of Blender and before that was Fractal Design .
  4. Spaceship, Organic style

    Looks Great I could see a few of them joining together to make 1 longer ship as to look like a thorax or the back have of the mother ship.
  5. smart UV unwrapping?

    in the retopo room retopo completed on left towards bottom you will see Commands Tab click/open that AUTO Seams then Unwrap. I would mark the seams yourself for a better outcome. then unwrap. edit : in same retopo room 1st click on UV> Mark Seam This then give more options in the Command List..

  7. [Solved] Help with potion bottle glass :C

    Just wondering why Low Poly on worked. Was just 1 of the objects low poly or both the bottle and liquid are low poly? or Was there a high poly bottle and a low poly baked normal map on it ?
  8. If by chance you have the Paint Bucket TOOL selected the 3 spheres blue ,green , black move too the far left .
  9. texture distorted

    It looks as if your 3dcoat viewport is set to Perspective and it looks as if the 3ds max is in orthographic . I wish 3dc would change there modes to show it to just P and O I can barley tell which is which now with the boxes. Hopefully that is it.
  10. Houdini 16.5 Sneak Peek

    I keep saying I am going to download the trail to try it but I don't have the time I want to get into it for the 30 days. Hopefully over the winter.It does look good.

  13. Extrude issue in stroke mode (video)

    Hard to see but looks as if Vol 28_inst 007 layer is (non uniform) its at the very bottom of screen in RED Type . If so Right Click on that Layer a menu will come up and up near top is Global Space try that. hard to tell what it says in RED down there ..
  14. Importing an OBJ with a dozen individual objects....?

    you can try if bringing the obj in the sculpt room (Import as a Voxel Object) you get the panel to check things and just below AUTO SCALE IS Import to Separate Instances . I hit the auto scale button . and the Import W/O Voxelization as to have your model in surface mode . hope it helps.
  15. JoPPa / Voxel doodles

    they all look great to me ,its great to see works done in 3dc as it gives me a wow it can be done. I am mostly a Blender user and have not done much in the sculpting arena .
