There have been many new feature addition videos, including the recent changes to the Sketch Tool, and the new Retopo Mesh Update (to conform to Voxel model when you need to go back and make large scale changes to the Voxel Model) feature. There are also some covering the 3DConnexion device support. Be sure to check them out.

Here's one super handy feature in 3D Coat, that has been relatively hidden. The ability to swap UV's without having to worry about losing your texture work. Andrew made it super easy and seamless.

Recently added the Tutorial on creating Layer Masks. Thought most users would find it very helpful, as it's a rather obscure feature. It's not mentioned in the Manual, and almost no way for a user to discover it on their own.

Just added a demonstration of the new Spline Stroke Draw mode. I'm loving this feature. Using it in conjunction with LiveClay is a killer combination.

I agree. Probably the best 3D-Coat tutorials I have ever seen.

Pure wizardry! :)

My appreciation of 3D-Coat improves the more I watch. What an amazing application.

Thanks for the encouraging words. Still trying to make them better, but it's a hard balancing act trying to keep things concise without bypassing details/steps new users may want to know.

These are incredibly valuable.

Makes me wish that other programs had bite sized official youtube tuts.

Uploading it now...kind of a "Video Guide to Happy Baking." Some more from the Common Workflows series. Wanted to do more sculpting, but the videos ran long enough as it is. Stay tuned. Next item up is LiveClay series and complete workflow series, building the Banshee model from scratch in Voxels > Retopo > UV > Paint Room.

Here is a tip, that I thought would be helpful. When trying to make a brush selection for tools like Angulator, Smoother, Vox Layer, Vox Extrude and Subdivide, it can be very slow. I mentioned this to Andrew, so hopefully he can multi-thread it so that it's not such an issue. Nevertheless, a good work around is using sticky keys.

I asked in another thread who does these videos, but didn't get an answer. Just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to do all of these tutorials. They've been, and are continuing to be, an invaluable help.

AbnRanger makes those videos! He and Javis pretty much taught me everything I know about 3D-Coat! In my mind they are part of the driving force behind 3D-Coat's success!

Thanks for the kind words. It's a tough balancing act between trying to keep things concise and narrowly focused, and explaining things well enough for new users to understand. There have been some new Retopo-oriented videos (including the usage of the new improvements to the Auto-Retopo toolset) added to the "Intro to 3D Coat series." There are a few tips added to help anyone who wants to split the work on a model between manual retopo tools and Auto-Retopo. Also a quick tip on retopologizing otherwise tricky areas, like Eye or Mouth Cavities...these are hard to work on with the manual retopo tools, because the work area is largely obscured.

 

You can see some emphasis on using the Strokes tool as much as possible, because it is a powerful Auto-Retopo tool in it's own right....in fact, I would recommend using it for roughly 80-90% of the model, if Auto-Retopo doesn't quite suit the task. There is also a brief demo of using the Kitbashing toolset to add another powerful option to Retopologize your model.
