    Animal anatomy texture painting

    Thank you for the compliment. I remember that, despite being lit inside a box by photographer, I had still trouble from time to time where photos had different colors, strong speculars and/or tinted photos. So I had to fix them in advance before using them in 3DC. With micro vertex you apply color to the vertices, this is why is faster, because 3DCoat skips calculations about paiting projections when you do normal polypainting. The nice thing is color will be with your mesh, the not nice thing, if I'm not wrong, you should use fbx file format to export object to other 3d softwares and sometimes it creates problems, of course, if you want to export that.

    Animal anatomy texture painting

    Very interesting project and great results. When I worked on a project of paiting ancient vases, 3DCoat saved my tasks because I was able to project photos of vases when photogrammetry failed, well, we had little experience with that and a very thight window time, but we did. What I found useful was using masks in order to have a non destructive workflow, so I could have two adjecent photos and mask (and deforming) one until they looked like one continuos texture. Masks were really important and I think they could be a little improved. Anyway, painting in 3DCoat was really nice experience. You can have an idea here, insects and vases painted in 3DC: https://www.artstation.com/artwork/GXDk8d

    Oh, yeap, I did and it worked, maybe because they were previously saved but they didn't work, don't know. I'll use 3DC more next week and I'll tell, but I hope not

    3DCoat 4.9 BETA testing thread

    Hello, given custom shortcut (shift+d) to Clone (right click on a layer -> Clone -> Clone), it doesn't work. Same shortcut to Geometry -> Res+ works. It's me or it's a bug? Thank you

    Ahahahahah! That's really amazing, I'll show it to my girlfriend, who, like me, was an avid manga reader when we were younger, because it reminds me that funny moments when steam/blood came out from nose, you know? Congrats again

    Nice challenge, but I'm sure it will be hard, really hard... for me.

    3DCoat 4.8 BETA testing thread

    Hi Carlosan, thank you for the links, but I already know what VDB is used for, because I'm a VFX/Houdini artist, so I used that in the past. I had to ask forgiveness as I formulate the question in the wrong way. While I'm very happy to see 3DCoat and VDB in the same page, I was wondering what "codec" means, I was wondering how to use VDB inside 3DCoat, how do you import VDB? can you import a VDB sequence? Where can I find more documentation about it? Thank you again.

    Hello, what does it mean " Open VDB codec enabled. "? Thank you

    Wait For It..!!!!

    Wonderful! Congratulations for the this sci-fi opera. To be honest, the paint over isn't so nice as the sculpting and, if I would change something, it should be the bullets: instead seeing every single bullet shot, I would prefer to have some bullet tracer effect, like you did with the paint over, just longer streams and with slightly different angles.

    hard surface modeling

    Hi, the model is a bit creepy, but it recalls me the crazy design in Serious Sam videogames, that I played and loved a lot! On technical side, it's just amazing the use you did of 3DCoat, congratulations!
