    Splendid work, Leigh. Glad to see you back in the saddle, here.

    What kind of message is this?

    4.9.05 was the latest build before the refactoring work, so that is a decent fallback option, when you run into issues with subsequent builds. A lot of work has been done since to not only add new functionality, but to bring the app to a very stable state. It's getting there, steadily, with lots of fixes coming multiple times per week on average.

    ....Also, when you said "CONSIDERING THE BUGS IN 3DCOAT LATELY" you do realize these are BETA builds, right? What do you typically experience during BETA testing? That's correct....a lot of bugs. That's part of the reason it's open to everyone, not just a few....so more people can root out the problems that exist and solutions are created much faster than they would otherwise. I get frustrated at them, too, but refactoring an entire codebase will create a higher than normal number of issues. It's getting there. Fixes are coming on almost a daily basis.

    I agree to some extent, but it's probably because Andrew and much of the Pilgway staff, although English is not their native language, they do speak fairly good English, otherwise. That is why you might see some old legacy notes like this (that almost no one sees) be phrased like this. Anyway is probably better stated "NEVERTHELESS, the Islands were projected onto the average normal plane to get the UV Coordinates." BTW, You can hit F9 while hovering over any UI text to correct and send the correction to the developers.

    3DCoat 4.9 BETA testing thread

    Yeah, I think hitting ENTER (basically dyna-meshes it) would solve that. I also RMB the VoxTree layer > choose TO GLOBAL SPACE, when I notice strange mesh behaviors. Sometimes that works surprisingly well, but not in every case.

    Try switching to the default shader

    Blender Applink

    We will have to wait for the Applink developer to chime in, but for one thing, make sure you are using the latest build of 3DCoat (4.9.37), as it has the newly rewritten Applink code in it. Secondly, just let 3DCoat send the file where the applink wants to put it and take note of it, if you need to move that directory, later. When I do that, it works flawlessly.

    Blender Applink

    With the recent work done on the Applink, the developer may have directed the Applink to look in: MY DOCUMENTS/APPLINKS/3D-COAT/EXCHANGE/BLENDER
  10. This is something I have recently requested from Andrew, myself....exporting of separate Vertex Color maps (Color, Roughness, Metalness). Please send him a request by email (support@3dcoat.com) to add more urgency/priority to this request.

    3DCoat 4.9 BETA testing thread

    After I cleared my cookies (was recommended by Chrome), it seemed to work

    Blender Applink

    Try exporting something...the default cube in blender...anything...to 3DCoat, first. Then, do a test and try to send it back to Blender, via the FILE > OPEN IN ORIGINAL APP option

    3DCoat 4.9 BETA testing thread

    Oh, that's right. It's my fault it got moved to the Voxel Brushes. I asked Andrew to move it there, because it made a LOT more sense to have it among the BRUSHES and not Adjustment tools. For example, the Surface Hide tool in Surface mode, is in the Brushes section.

    Renderman support ?

    I should have clarified. 4.9.05 was the last build before they did a TON of refactoring work, which has subsequently caused a lot of issues. It also included some changes in the Render room, and Renderman support has apparently taken a back seat to work done on the new render engine that should be part of 3DCoat 2020, when released. Feel free to contact support and ask about Renderman support being re-established. It does have it's benefits, even if it is quite limited. My point was that if someone wants to use Renderman, now, try using build 4.9.05, in the mean time.

    AMD vs Intel Power-users Q:

    I've had way more than 43million polys in a scene, and it not slow the system down. That's with an AMD Ryzen 2700X and ThreadRipper 1950X (64GB RAM). I wonder if the INTEGRATED GRAPHICS on the 9900K might be the source of the problem. You might check with Andrew about this (support@3DCoat.com)

    3DCoat 4.9 BETA testing thread

    Thank you, Andrew. I remember reporting this same issue a few months ago.

    Renderman support ?

    For what it is worth, it does work with 3DCoat build 4.9.05

    3DCoat 4.9 BETA testing thread

    I just did a quick test, as I was getting ready to record a tutorial on this very topic. It works on this end. 4.9.34 DX

    3DCoat 4.9 BETA testing thread

    Are the texture maps and the .mtl file in the same folder as the mesh file? That is odd. I seemed to have a similar problem several months ago, but I was just making sure that my VoxTree layer was in Surface mode. Once I checked the "Import w/o Voxelization" option in the Tool Options panel, it started working. Test a different mesh file and see if that helps. It might be a messed up .mtl file or something.

    Blender Applink

    Is that the 4.9.35 build or one after that?

    3DCoat 4.9 BETA testing thread

    Try using it with 4.9.05 (right before the Refactoring work).

    Blender Applink

    Even if you start in 3DCoat? If I model and texture something in 3DCoat from scratch, and want to render it in Evee or Cycles, how would I get that in, without an IMPORT or GETBACK button?

    Blender Applink

    I restarted my computer and both apps and the last zip file you provided is completely broken and unusable, for some reason.
  24. AbnRanger

    Blender Applink

    It's broken on my end. No GET BACK button and doesn't update automatically (OPEN IN ORIGINAL APP)
  25. AbnRanger

    Blender Applink

    If we start from 3DCoat, I no longer see the GET BACK button? What happened to it?
