    Material fun

    Really am enjoying the new materials in the latest version and how easy to make a quick scene for even a novice like me. Made this old padlock, key and box for a challenge very quickly. What a wonderful program! Thank you !
  2. Being an untrained novice hobbyist I'm still loving 3DCoat and the new shaders are really cool. Yeah, it's rough - for a hobbyist like me, it's a fun play for retro-thinking geezers like me. Thanks so much for the new version, tools, render engine and shaders. Very cool!

    V4 Stable version

    I got Zbrush way back when it was about $250. I upgraded 3DC from 2 to 3 about five years ago. Guess I don't like that some get an upgrade for free and others don't. But don't mind me, I just old curmudgeon complaining who can barely see the computer screen anyway. I probably should take up counting leaves. Signing out, I won't be back.

    V4 Stable version

    Guess I bought too many years early then upgraded to 3 to qualify for free upgrade to 4. Oh well, Zbrush 4R5 was free.

    SurfaceMode sculpting presets

    I installed them, but I'm pretty sure I need adult supervision on how to use them properly.

    Texture Advice

    I want to texture this komodo dragon like the one seen in the link. http://www.earthtime.../komodo-dragon/ What advise would you Pros give on what kind of layers I need to do this and exactly how would I generate a realistic Komodo scales that has depth. I want to achieve the look seen here with a plug-in in my 3D software render program. Thanks!

    Got this message when I started Beta Version Cuda 4 1. What does it mean, other than the obvious?

    Maya 2014; retopo sneak peak...SHRINK WRAPPING

    That's pretty cool! As I recall there used to be shrink-wrapping in one of the old trueSpace versions. Always wondered why that wasn't exploited further.

    Importing obj files for sculpting.

    Here's a wiki file to get you started. You can just start out simple to experiment, use auto UV and change texture size for starters. Then adjust later on as you become comfortable with program.http://3d-coat.com/wiki/index.php/1.1_Importing_Meshes

    Text Tool

    Hmmm, dunno unless you are using a font not on your computer.

    Text Tool

    Depends if you are talking about the paint room or the voxel room. However, in either I have found the number of "nodes" (click to get a node) matters quite a bit for control and 'smoothness'. I usually put a "node" every two or three letters as it gives you control with movement (left mouse button) or size (right mouse button)
