New workflow for me. I created a medieval padded jacket using not highpoly bakes. The method relies on painting all the tileable normal textures first, followed by making materials and applying them onto lowpoly. Quite pleased with the result, hope you find this useful.
The second time in a row, all objects (layers) in the scene are deleted from me. This happens under unclear circumstances. Once I wanted to delete one layer, it was not deleted, I clicked on the trash icon several times, and as a result all my ~ 60 layers were destroyed. Now I just clicked the button a step back and got the same result above.
Yes Quads in direct Method tool is the most closet to Modo workflow. Use RMB over any vertex to move/tweak it.
You need to switch tools, first Split the Slide using RMB, use END keyto define hotkeys.
Yes, you have to keep on pressing ESC key every time.
No, its not possible to add RMB function to Quads Tool. Its a good feature request but sadly is not possible currently.
I created a smart material and on the roughness slot, I put in a glossiness texture, then invert it to get a roughness result. However, it doesn't paint anything in the roughness channel when inverted. I think it is a bug. Using the 3D-Coat 4.9.15
Im a Modo, and C4D user and looking at the nice tools Maya has for topology. Some spesific ones that caught my attention is Smooth brush from the shift modifier key along with soft selection. What solutions does 3Dcoat have for retopology smoothing, and how does in general they compare with Maya. I use Zbrush so dont even need the sculpting part of 3DCoat.
Here is a video I made to make my question more clear.
I sent this to staff but wanted to see if anyone else is having similar issues:
I have a license of 3d coat on my work computer and have not had issues but, I am working from home (sometimes I have to do that) and trying to open 3d coat via remote desktop and it says error. I need to be able to use it from home but it has to be via remote desktop sometimes due to network files, file management systems, etc. I know I could free the license and using the same license on my home computer but, do to what I mentioned, that's arduous. There are no other programs that I use including Photoshop and 3DS Max that have any problems using remote desktop. They all work fine. If anyone has had the same issue and has fixed it, I'd love to know. Thanks, Ramon
This is all I get when opening 4.8.10 from home accessing my work computer:
Thank you for the reply.
The fact that installing these older versions does not fix these symptoms may not be the fault of the software.
Probably because of an unknowing change in my PC environment.
First of all, I will use it with the cavity off.
I will use the immigration tool when I need it.
I will try it out when a new beta comes.
Thank you again!
This video covers the addition of the Layer Panel (for use of Sculpt Layer functionality and also when storing Pose Selections to a layer) and the Proxy Slider to the Default Sculpt Workspace in 3DCoat.
