    Linux updates news

    Yes, he's dealing with some cross-platform issues as well. And he's not forgotten about the Linux builds, he reassuringly said. :-) So a bit more time and we'll be there. The nice thing is that he already managed to get OSX builds out and working. It's getting closer! Edit: Oh, and thanks for the update, Carlosan!

    Blender 2.83 Applink

    I rather have the applink where it is now. On most projects I won't be using the add-on during all stages of the process, and sometimes it won't be used at all. Having a button visible at all times I think it clutters the interface and adds some substantial visual noise. On the other side, opening the tab to the occasional (albeit frequent) transmission of assets between both programs isn't that clunky. I hardly see any organised work needing a frantic constant exchange, even while rapid changes in the process requires frequent back and forth. We work and polish using both programs, but the bulk of the work isn't in the exchange, but inside applications. Maybe other workflows could benefit from the suggested placement above. I couldn't tell. What about making it optional? Would that be feasible?

    Yes, now it installs and I can activate the add-on. Thanks!

    Blender 2.83 Applink

    Am I doing it right? OK, so I've installed 3DCoat on a windows machine and also Blender (2.82a and latest 2.83 beta with separate config folders for each one.) Then I placed the contents of io_coat3D.zip posted above in the Blender\2.8x\scripts\addons Then launched Blender (repeated the process for each version) and I can't seem to find the 3DCoat applink in the addons part of the preferences to activate it afterwards. So no applink. I then removed the Blender configs and tried to install the zip file from the Preferences->Add-ons->Install... option. Same result. Any pointers about the right procedure to run it, or install it? It's been a while since I used 3DCoat in Windows, so I might be a tad off the loop. Thanks for your time.

    Linux updates news

    If I may, I emailed Linux support at the end of November (2019) and Sergii kindly answered me back. I shared some of the worries expressed in this thread and other private conversations with fellow professionals outside this forums and, in a nutshell, the situation is, as I was told, this: A lot has changed in the code. And he's working non-stop to catch up for the Mac version to be ready. Once that port is done, Linux is next. He assumed that around the time 3DCoat 2020.xx is out we'll find the builds popping out. Also, from then, serial keys would be for all systems. So there you go. It's going to take some time, but apparently it's not an abandoned project. I don't worry particularly that the Mac version comes first: the port from OSX to Linux presumably has to be relatively straight forward. The perceived opacity around this facts seems a bit unnecessary to me because it's perfectly understandable that sometimes things take time in order to move forward. The team shared most of this information here and there but an easy to find official post in a thread would do wonders for current and potential customers' confidence. All in all, I hope they can pull it out in the not so distant future. In the end it may very well be for the best. Meanwhile, since WINE is not an option here, I hardly ever use 3DCoat. But the old build still works and it's being used occasionally. Not every job requires the new tools. It's the bugs and limitations long time gone in more current builds that frustrate me. Substance on the other side is fantastic in Linux, and in an Ubuntu (or derivative) it's not at all difficult to set up (I can help if someone needs me to.) I hope I didn't add to the confusion. Being a professional, knowing where we are is important to me and I got what seemed an honest response. I hope when the time comes I can still make use of 3DCoat in my workflow, I really liked this software.

    3DCoat 4.9 BETA testing thread

    So, will the refactoring of the code help in any way the progress of the Linux build? Is there any progress on that front? I'd love to try all that goodness that's been developed lately without rebooting (and thus breaking my workflow.) Thanks in advance for any answer I might get. :-)

    Hi, any news on the Linux development progress?

    Thanks for the update, Sergyi.

    3DCoat 4.8 BETA testing thread

    Can we have any update on the progress of the Linux builds, please? I'd love to try out some of the new great features added since the last build available.

    That's reassuring. Thank you for the explanation, SERGYI.

    3DCoat 4.8 BETA testing thread

    The end of native Linux builds is a concern here. We use 3DCoat because it was native, before other alternatives restricted to Win/Mac builds. Even if not as fast as in Windows, we would be using 3DCoat. Not so with WINE, for a variety of reasons. Let's hope the vague "they will look to resume them [the native Linux builds] at some point" won't take long. I'm a bit baffled at the studio(s) that suggested using WINE, and quite surprised to see Pilgway accepting that as a real option for professionals. We'll keep using the last builds available for Linux. Later, we might have to part ways. A pity, really, if that day comes, specially now that Allegorithmic is dead as a company and the future of their products is uncertain, as other forum members said in this very thread already. Anyways, we'll see.

    3DCoat 4.8 BETA testing thread

    So we now should use WINE to run 3DCoat on Linux? I don't think that is ideal, albeit for now it's just for beta testing builds rather than stable production ones. I really hope the new Linux native beta and future stable builds won't be too long ahead. Thanks for the answer and clarification anyway, Sergyi.

    Can we have a GNU/Linux build to play with, pretty please? It's been a while. :-)

    3DCoat 4.8 BETA testing thread

    Linux link is wrong. It downloads the 4.7.37 version. Manually type this in the browser's address bar (or copy and paste) and it downloads the new beta: http://www.3d-coat.com/~sergyi/3D-CoatV4-8-01.tar.gz Just clicking won't do it. Edit: OK, this one works: http://www.3d-coat.com/~sergyi/3D-CoatV4-8-01.tar.gz Please 3DCoat team, fix the links. By the way, it's not the first time this happens. Maybe you should automate the link generation?
