  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. looks like a bug reported: http://3d-coat.com/mantis/view.php?id=968
  5. I always turn off Voxel room > Voxels menu > Highlight
  6. 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
  7. TY digman I have a HPoly mesh with sculpted details And a LPoly where to bake the details I dont need normal or displacement map but bump map showing the HP sculpted details over the LP. bake with nm give me good result bake with mv is a mess in an external app... must i use the NM like bump map or any otherwalkthrough is needed ? ty in advance
  8. Right to the edit button there is a Change Status To: please mark it resolved ty
  9. 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
  10. is free or trial ? ty //edit can we ask for this feature inside 3DC ?
  11. 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
  12. works... but you are ONLY seeing ONE UVset Upper left there is a window with the name sphere-material press the name to drop out the uvlayout list
  13. like an illustrator or inkspace draw with strokes ? you need to keep the painted line over a 3D object... i duno if its possible... is there another sculpt app that let to do it ? any example ?
  14. Do you mean Paint with Splines ? the tool below Copy and paste parts of a surface ? esc clear the spline
  15. A wish It would be nice if 3DCoat could link with Luxrender for a realistic render of model. Luxrender seems a nice one, because is free and the fact it works on Windows,Mac and Linux platforms. http://www.luxrender.net/en_GB/index It would be nice if you could render it from within 3DCoat as an option within the 3dcoat renderer. We only need to export a lux render scene in .lxs file format The last version offer hybrid GPU and CPU rendering And the dev. version 1.3 have RT... is amazing (look at weekly dev test at LR forum) ty in advance Document Scene file format overview http://www.luxrender...format_overview
