    да создается впечатление какойто липкой фигни.

    nVidia GTX 470 or 480?

    Interesting to know how fast/slow 470GTX would be in comparisson to 460GTX with 2Gb Ram, And would it be noticable loss in performance for 460gtx which has less amount of cuda cores in 3D Coat?
  3. Nice shaders, they are dramatically changing the sculpting feel, works almost like in Zbrush, although there are some artifacts still happening for me.

    nope, i`d say that you`ve started with details and accessories too early, there are still a lot of places to improve(i not mean to make them absolutely perfect) the arms are the most distracting, especialy palms and fingers. Start to study and sculpt anatomical correct models, its like a spring the further you pull with it - the harder it will smash you back later... actually will smash if you care of course about doing the good job. humm accessories looking not bad in some places

    Sculptris - dynamic mesh tesselation

    actualy for my taste 2.4X was better the only thig which i wanted is the hotkey editor, it appeared in 2.5 but now i dont like its ui, the old one was clearer for me.

    Sculptris - dynamic mesh tesselation

    blender - no. but as it have been said before - developers could be. anyway blender have made a great step forward since past few years, sometimes observing it`s features i`m biting my lips.

    thanks, finally I found that flattened texture preview, my fault I looked for it in a wrong place lately.

    плавно лучше не надо делать чтобы переключалось, замедляет темп работы пока сидищь и смотрищь как вьюпорт новое положение принимает, или если такую "плавность" делать, то с возможностью отключения ибо мишура вобщемто.
  9. yes switching from masking to hiding became a bit confusing, but the good thing is that now these tools working with symmetry, and it`s became much easier to assign polygroups inside Zbrush itself rather then import/export model somwhere else for this task. also the selections may be moved while creating them holding a spacebar like in photoshop. and you have the ability to drag often used Mask and Selection types over the pannel to quickly switch between them, i done this already but popup notification window still annoying(

    Hm, I think it would be handy to have such features in 3dc also. ok. Actually im not quite sure but have seen on youtube, that in zbrush unwrapped model also could be tweaked and threated with brushes just like any 3d tools in flattened mode. But have not tried that approach with UV master... I am lazy( I am agree of course, but in practice you will often approach details wich needed to be cut-off for better unwraping horns, pimps... noses and ears are also annoying you know it... No, when in texture editing mode there is no option in windows-popups to see the uv preview, it is useful some times to see the flattened version of a texture and paint on it, also some times I prefer to tweak a bit UVs to match the painted details rather then to redraw/clone them on texture. for the retopo - yes, i dont care about how the uvs are looking during that process.

    3D-Coat 3.3 updates thread

    for compensate distortions/compressions i am selecting polys over such places and apply few times relax it resulting that those areas become almost gray maybe with slight tint, or using smooth brush, but it would not be perfect everywhere anyway. still, even after i read the explanation i still missing smthing, i like that for now i coud not affect the borders of uvs by smooth brush. As for the seams and their appearence in game engines the way to avoid them is to use padding while baking maps in pixels which extends color over the borders of uvs slightly. but presence of the padding some times not necesary means that it will release model from artefacts in the seams area, some thimes while turning around model on those seams happens some blinking and the only way to get rid of it - is to move a bit uv borders >inside< texture space, but such act will result in non coincidence of a texture along either side of a seam. As for uv editor in 3DC in general, it is sad for me, that it have no option to show an actual texture map applied on model in uv preview window, also undo on selection works strange in preview window - need to push it few times and it removes not the last element item picked, but the whole selection of elements

    LW: Moved from Update Thread

    pity, thought it would happen earlier ( no i`m not thinking to switch from Max and Cinema to Lightwave just want to try and compare some things. thanks!

    3D-Coat 3.3 updates thread

    May I ask some question? In which kind of way for what tasks this feature could be helpful? (please write detailed answer not just general phrases like "to simplify uv editing process")

    LW: Moved from Update Thread

    when the LW 10 with CORE release will be? want to try Lightwave for the first time and waiting the 10th version to start, because dont want to get familiar for the software 2 times and try 9 now, since 9 and 10 will have the different look.

    New user looking from some answers...

    I found a tutor(old enough but think it would be useful) on vimeo about wraping objects with cloth in 3DC, not so fast solution like you have in ZBrush, need some time to calculate but... as variant

    Reprogramming HotKeys

    hover mouse over move tool button, press End key on the keyboard, and assign your custom hotkey.

    try to practice in sculpting different body parts, it seems you are not ready for now for fullbody character.

    А нельзя ли сделать возможность выставления Rotation Point для камеры(хоткей по дефолту F) работающим везде или хотябы рабочим с большинством инструментов? например я заметил, что при использовании Curves навигация осуществляется вокруг центра мира, что не очень удобно работая со всякой мелочью вроде выдавливания пальцев, когда нужно вращаться вокруг локального участка на модели, но пивот для камеры на него не устанавливается( Еще можно такую вещь добавить для удобства навигации как Zoom to mouse cursor, ето вобщем когда камера зумится не в центр экрана, а в точку, в которой в данном момент находится курсор. я полазил в преференсах и чтото ничего наподобие этой чтуки не нашол( ...Еще Grid бы наверное можно сделать привязанным не к абстрактным Screen units, а к чемунибуть вроде метров, сантиметров с возможностью выбора. ето чтобы ощущать масштаб объекта сравнивая с делениями сетки. А можно сделать превью для текстурных слоев, вокселей, ув, ретопо групп и всего такого, что может существовать в слоях, в виде плавающего стыкуемого окошка(которое бы можно было удобно вмонтировать на панельку как на картинке ниже), в котором бы при клике на название слоя отображалось бы и его содержимое? приблизительно еще бы неплохо по аналогии с фотошопом для слоев сделать такую вещь - Alt+клик по пиктограмме рядом со слоем делает все остальные слои невидимыми, повторный Alt+клик по пиктограмме глаза делал бы спрятанные слои снова видимыми. а то сейчас только альт + клик работает только в режиме рисования и то только в одну сторону, обратить видимость для спрятанных слоев уже нельзя пробовал альт+клик, контрол+клик, конторл+альт+клик и др комбинации с модификатороами и кнопками мыши. извиняюсь если чтото перечислил что уже на самом деле есть.
  19. well, actualy i started my first post in this topic with the worlds "in my opinion" which of course not representing the whole picture about things are going on for all artists. its the matter of luck you have encountered the same behavior with used and new device. for coat maybe, i discovered that with some tools camera rotation modes like custom pivot, or pick point is ignored and navigation happens around world`s center wich no good especialy while trying to pull with spline tool small body parts like fingers, tails and other thumbs for such kind of work you need to fly around local place of intrest... but i think it could be fixed and the range of tasks where navigator is helpful will be narrowed more:D

    New user looking from some answers...

    it forces one piece of mesh to conform the shape of another. here is demo of the process
  21. but why? i tried it for enough amount of time and found that this device not for everyone, and not giving such vital benefit for its price, like for example graphic tablet do. to warn trustful people against purchasing things which it can appear unnecessary... and actualy why if u using it you think everybody must and be happy of it? No, I don't like to buy used things, and have not took into consideration this opportunity even if it would cost lower, its comfortably enough to work with pen in one hand and keyboard under another, instead of saerching headaches. If to speak about E-Bay, even if it is possible to find new goods there, often dealers not shipping them to my country only US or Canada accepted, rarely Europe. For the European E-Bay prices on goods are not far from mine which are in my local store, 50$ would not change to much, and would not iincline me to prefer spend less $ and make order on e-bay, mess with shippment, guarantee if sh!t happen accidently and so on.
  22. Appreciate that author using Coat with Cinema, and hope to see more videos in future.

    in other worlds - Better bitter truth, than sweet lie.
  24. Its your right of course to have the different point of view from mine. No, luckily i have not step into temptation to spend money(the price is sick almost 800$ O_O) for device, which i am absolutely sure would lay under my table and collect dust. I tried it in max and the only thing which found useful, that it could be possible to navigate around the model due the cutting edges process whithout need to reactivate the cut tool, because in max it canceles cut tool after you begin to rotate around with standart navigation... In other apps there is no such trouble. also i must admit it could do a good job for animators, while animating camera movements... but i`m not animator, and i have only one right hand. with my left hand its inconvenient moving in scene whith any device such as mouse tablet or whatever, because it resulting in jumping inaccurate movements, also it has a few amount of buttons in comparison with a keyboard and switching from one device to another is not the funniest thing in the world due this process you also loosing your time. hehe, but how? After you have exposed the point of interest on the model, most likely you stoping the navigation process and begining to sculpt/paint/move verticles and so on, i am hardly beliving that you doing 2 tasks of navigating and modeling simultaneously, mabybe some sort of work in conjunction with drifting navigation and not so often. I dont think most of people have those skisls for the both hands. i could navigate well with my right hand, but what shoud do the left hand during this process if i coud not paint or sculpt with it?
  25. simple standart generic keyboard would be cheeper for hotkeys, and also could store some food supplies in it after each brekfast such as cookies, chips and so on you know.
