    4.1 Released! (Current stable version)

    Can anyone tell me if 4.1 allows you to move a window (UV preview, etc...) out of the main shell and onto a dual monitor? My current version does not allow for this and it feels very confining. Thanks!

    [SOLVED] Zbrush to 3D Coat (multiple object retopo)

    I'm in the retopo room with an obj. That menu is in the voxel room. When I go there, my mesh is not there:/ thx
  4. Hello! Kind of still noob, If I merge subtools in Zbrush and import the obj into 3D Coat for retopo...the object comes in combined with no separate polygroup info or layers. Or at least I'm not seeing them. I want to be able to isolate objects and hid others. Any advice is appreciated. thx

    Retopo mesh looks bad in UDK

    Doesn't work. I just remembered that obj doesn't support 2 uv sets, but even when I export as an FBX, open in 3DC and re-export back to maya as FBX, it still kills my uv sets.

    in the first image, you're just not seeing the 2nd UV set I create for lightmapping.

    Retopo mesh looks bad in UDK

    I'm still having issues with this but I found a quick fix, however, another issue has come of it. I can export FBX from 3DC. UDK will still warn about smoothing groups, but it will except the mesh and it looks fine. My issue is that when I export an obj from Maya, with the 2 UV sets I have created, I export as an FBX from 3DC, open it back up in Maya and my 2UV sets are gone and replaced with 4 uv sets created in 3DC. What is the setting to stop this from happening? I don't tick anything upon export so I'm not sure whats going on. I'd appreciate any help:)

    Hey thx!

    3DC does not play nicely with UDK.

    Yeah, the normal map isn't even applied. This is just the mesh with the standard material. This is some kind of issue with the meshes normals. It must be an export setting out of 3DC. I'd love to know the best settings for exporting a retopo mesh. The strange thing, is that this mesh will look fine in Unity.

    Retopo mesh looks bad in UDK

    Looking for an answer to this. If I export mesh to Unity as an obj, it looks just fine, but when I export to UDK and an FBX it looks bad. This is just the mid section of a stone pillar. UV's welded and laid...no overlapping, and normals are all fine in Maya. Any ideas? Thx!

    Basically what the mesh looks like in the viewer.

    Hi! New guy here. I've been using 3DC for its awesome UV mapping and retopology procedures. I could use some help! I can bring any retopo mesh into Unity and it looks great, but when I bring it in to UDK, there appears to be something very wrong with the mesh. Possibly the normals. Everything looks just fine in Maya, so I'm a little confused. Again, great in Unity, destroyed in UDK. If this is a known issue, I would love a work around or to know why it's happening. Is there an export setting I'm missing? Thanks in advance! -Cory
