  1. A FOV of about 10-15 (similar to using an 135-85mm lens) for headshots and 30-40 (similar to a 50-35mm lens) for full body shots will prevent the ugly distortion that is typical when using a wide FOV setting.
  2. are you viewing from perspective projection ?
  3. THis is the manual workflow im following (just for reference) http://3d-coat.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=6863
  4. The answer from Andrew was the color info stored really takes a big chunk of space Its possible to set the UNDO steps by project ? Its impossible to work with high textures.
  5. Mantis request open -any +1 is welcome- http://3d-coat.com/mantis/view.php?id=1089 Baking a RGB map from your highpoly model is a huge time saver allowing you to quickly extract selection masks that you can use as the basis of your texture. Assign basic materials to your highpoly objects using Red, Green, Blue, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and White and then bake that down to a color map along with your normal map. You can use a Photoshop action to separate the colors into individual layers that you will be able to build your materials on top of. Make sure to use the exact color values ie: 1, 0, 0 – 0, 1, 0 – 0, 0, 1 – 1, 1, 0 – 1, 0, 1 – 0, 1, 1 and 1, 1, 1
  6. Hi I have a Hipoly model and a Lowpoly model. need to bake 1K color, specular and normal maps if i understood well... there is 2 workflows (and i had tested the 2 ways working different models) - Add sculpt details to the hipoly model, paint it using surface mode, import the lowpoly model into retopo room and bake -merge- with NM. or - Only bake the hipoly to lowpoly to get normal map... and paint the lowpoly for PPP in paint room adding normal details -if needed- using paint with deep. and here im lost... which way give better results for you ? paint the HP in surface mode and bake ? or paint the lowpoly using the paint room tools ? any help is welcome ty in advance

  9. i have done a model in Blender with 2 UVmaps the UVmap1 was assigned like default for render exported the OBJ, and imported it in Retopo room like uvset1 (Retopo > import) then same process... the UVmap2 was assigned like default for render exported the OBJ, and imported it in Retopo room like uvset2 BUT first i create a new uv-set Now i have the same mesh with 2 uvsets When i bake for PPP, in the paint room there is one object with 2 uvsets and 2 materials is this what you need ? hope it help

  12. Mantis feature request to bake Concavity & Convexity maps in the same way 3DC calculate Ambient Occlusion http://3d-coat.com/mantis/view.php?id=52
  13. is free or trial ? ty //edit can we ask for this feature inside 3DC ?
  14. Mantis request open, any +1 appreciated http://3d-coat.com/mantis/view.php?id=1075 Actually the term baking is used instead of merging. To rename it is more than adequate to new users, and comprehensive to the old ones. ty
