    We made a special program to test WinTab/WindowsInk interfaces, please unpack, run and check if it produces correct trajectories in both modes. 1 and 2 switched the WinTab/Ink

  3. Andrew Shpagin's post in [Solved] Viewport locking does not work with 3D Space mouse compact was marked as the answer   
    Looks like the driver issue because 3d-coat does not control viewport locking, it is controlled by 3dconnexion driver. Please update driver, uncheck 4.xx mode in preferences.
  4. Andrew Shpagin's post in Tileable 3d textures was marked as the answer   
    Ok, I discovered and seems rendering Z buffer gives best result in this case. In next build you will be able to export projection from Y-axis to textures (including depth, color, specular, emissive). So this problem will be completely resolved in next build, you will get completely seamless texture in this case. Possibly I will drop link there preliminary to test.

  8. Andrew Shpagin's post in Optimizing 3DCoat laggy performance. was marked as the answer   
    After each stroke Coat writes Undo to disk. But usually you will never feel it.
    You may change path used for all files that are created dynamically (settings, new items, materials etc). It may take 500MB - 2 GB in general.
    Create file coat_data_path.txt in installation folder and put path to new placement of data, like
    c:\3D-CoatDataFiles\

  10. Andrew Shpagin's post in Quick question. Does paint room paint in 16 bit depth? was marked as the answer   
    3D-Coat will not export 16 bit color. But 16 bit alphas are good for bump and displacement.
    So, alpha will keep 16 bits but it is applicable mostly for displacement.
  11. Andrew Shpagin's post in A few pre-purchase questions... was marked as the answer   
    1. If you have several objects or materials, press ALT + eye icon in any panel (objects, material, surface, voxels, retopo, layers) to isolate - like in PS. Hiding polygons is also possibe.
    2,3. I don't know. But OBJ/STL formats are very common for all applictions.

  14. Andrew Shpagin's post in Basic question about Poly size. was marked as the answer   
    Im microvertex approach it means export of displaced and additionally subdivided mesh.
    Sizes mean polycount of exported object.
  15. Andrew Shpagin's post in [Solved] Baking suddenly does nothing was marked as the answer   
    I don't know why, but object's scale is incredibly tiny. If it is in mm - tube size has atomic scale.
    Go to Sculpt room, geometry->Edit scene scale and set scale to be 1.
    Then all will work.

  18. Andrew Shpagin's post in [SOLVED] cannot paint in texture editor was marked as the answer   
    Hi!
    I looked the problem and it is really a bug. I corrected it, fix will be in nearest beta.
    But you may easily avoid problems if you will subdivide quad once to avoid so big polygon.
