    3DCoat 2021 Open Beta test !

    Andrew, is there a Google Drive folder because the download speed is slow as frozen molasses.
  2. There are videos on the Youtube Channel showing many of the new features. Remember, it is a BETA at this point and that means many features are still being worked on. Have you ever participated in a Beta where they roll out a complete documentation and tutorial series before release? Probably not, right?

    Weld threshold is likely too high, as Gorbatovsky mentioned and is mentioned in the video about the feature (toward the end)

    I think it can be OK, if there were a pop-up marking menu to select which room we wanted. This way, it would be an improvement. For now, though, I just use hotkeys, anyway.

    To be honest, I don't think Retopo Shell is even supposed to be in the application. It was a beta tool a developer who no longer is with Pilgway, was working on. Andrew has since created a SHELL tool that does this job. I think the developers forgot to remove this.

    This is likely happening because the default Subdivision value is about 10x too high. I have reported this to Andrew, but I don't think he has addressed it yet. The default value on my current system, does not cause a crash, but it stalls the application for several seconds or longer. One needs to change the default value to 10x lower. Instead of 2.0, it should be more like .2 or instead of 1.0, it should be .1

    There actually is something like it, in a sense. In Surface Mode, you can click SMOOTH ALL at the bottom of the tool panel and have options for relaxing the whole model. You can even use the FREEZE brush to select areas where you DO NOT want to smooth/relax, or switch it in the dialog to smooth what is selected.

    Retopo - next big Step

    As a 3ds Max user, myself, I like it, but the default Auto-Retopo in 3DCoat was quietly improved in 4.9 and it does a bang up job in most cases. If I were to have some trouble on a given model, though, I would let the new Auto-Retopology tool in Max have a crack at it.

    I reported this problem a week ago, so it is confirmed. I hope Andrew fixes this ASAP, as it makes painting a royal PITA

    Make SURE in the Sculpt Workspace, to check CONFORM RETOPO MESH, so that any changes you make to the sculpt will be applied to the Retopo mesh, simultaneously. In the video, it was unchecked.

    I reported this 2 weeks ago. I hope Andrew sees it and fixes it.
