  1. New Layer Hotkey

    Hi, I'm using latest build of 3dc 4.8.10 DX64. I'm working on hotkeys and when I'm in sculpt room and try to define new layer (aka PS) from the icon on VoxTree panel, I'm not able to get 3dc to take cntrl+shift+n as an hotkey? however I can get duplicate layer on same layers panel to take cntrl+j (aka PS). Is this a bug? Can someone tell me the text command in *.hotkeys to setup new layer to force this to work? Thanks! Jason
  2. This is a wip of a tourist operation gone off the tracks on Mars. Compression on youtube was terrible for some reason. Sometimes it's great and other times it ruins animation? It's kinda look and feel for a larger project I wish to make. Huge thanks to 3Dcoat software for almost all the texturing of the vehicles and various objects.
  3. Have this problem as well. I've been getting the pose tool slice at 0,0,0 issue which shows the proper gradient but the tool is broken. Searching here I realized a work around is to move the model off the xyz plane and do the pose then move back which is working however when I do move the model temporarily I get black gradient like yourself.
  4. Bake textures between 2 different models

    Thank you for the reply. I was away from my computer till today. I'll look at this video today. Much appreciated.
  5. 1. If I build an object in 3D external application that is say a cube, cylinder, sphere and then combined them as 1 mesh and export as geom1.obj. Then bring geom1.obj into paint per pixel to paint room. Then create new UV map in 3DC. Paint a simple color/reflection/normal map on object. Then Finish step 1 to export this geom1 from 3DC with textures to 3rd party app. 2. If I then import geom1.obj that was paintined and UV'd from 3DC into app. Delete the cylinder and replace with a torus for instance and recombine as a new object. Export this new objects from 3rd party app at geom2.obj. 3. Bring geom2.obj into paint room, create new UV's. Now I have original geom1 that is painted, has UV's and now have geom2 with new but different UV's. 4. Q. What bake type or tools do I use to have ray casting of geom1s color/reflection/normal map baked or partcially baked onto new geom2? The videos appear to always require a sculpt room object to be the source or it appears that baking videos and tutorials do not show how to simply to a transfer between similar objects that won't need to go through the sculpt room. Thank you!
  6. Adjust mouse wheel sensitivity

    Not sure where and if it's possible to change or adjust mouse wheel sensitivity. On Windows 7 and mouse has no acceleration in windows config and is pretty standard. However in 3DCoat, I've set my preferences to have the middle mouse wheel change my brush angle. However it's changing the brush angle in huge increments like 720 degrees with just the most delicate input. Is there a place to fix this? Preferences>Viewport>Mouse Wheel = Brush Rotation Wheel Zoom for settings below this area are all at default of 1.0 I'm using the latest build of 3DCoat as well. Thanks, Jason
  7. 3D Coats content installation

    I presume a simple compatible with statement under the Resources page of 3Dcoat would be a huge time saver. Or probably remove most of these as I'm guessing v3 was quite a while ago. Thanks for your help! I'll look at the forum page you've suggested. Best, Jason Brummett

    Well that would at last explain it. Thanks but it doesn't say anything about version compatibility does it? Is there a location for some of these that are compatible with v4?
  9. 3D Coats content installation

    Look at first screen shot, the "bricks" are in fact in the documents folder already. So are some of the other resources, yet 3Dcoat doesn't see them. I try to manually load them by going to the Smart Material>Bricks>tab and select add to existing but it's not reading the xml, instead it's just bringing in the associated bitmaps flat into that folder. I can't pick the xml file either from that menu, only the bitmaps.
  10. 3D Coats content installation

    File>Browse>Smart Materials Indicates 3D coat is looking in it's install folder here: C:\Program Files\3D-Coat-V4.7.19\patterns However the installer places them in my docs folder (Hate my docs) Not sure if I should leave this alone or try to get 3Dcoat to not look at install folder but repoint it to my docs..?

    I see that it's a zip file now. However I'm still not able to load it into the various menus, aargh. Thanks for the reply though.
  12. 3D Coats content installation

    On 4.7.19 and on the latest build 4.7.24, I'm not able to install the extensions properly from the community resources. I see a tab in the paint room that shows e.g. "Bricks" under Smart Materials tab but there are no shaders in there after a restart. Just X "close" and +"New". This is the same for the shaders in the Voxel sculpt room. Is there a way to manually install the 3dpack contents to the appropriate location? Best Regards, Jason
  13. Why do OBJs import correct POS but .3b files DO NOT

    That is a bummer! I really like 3DCoats AO engine but if your in a pinch. You could use Mudbox which I still use for some things and it will respect heirarchy, and obj and FBX placement.
