  1. I wanted to get an idea on how people use their display tablets with 3D-Coat as I'm having some problems with the use. I'm interested in how you set up your preferences, etc. I have an XP-Pen Artist 13.3 which I like a lot. https://www.xp-pen.com/goods/show/id/202.html I'm having a lot of issues selecting the popup menus and any advise would be awesome as well.

    3DCoat 4.8 BETA testing thread

    I love Krita's popup palette, it would be really cool if more software packages would use similar interfaces.
  3. I just bought a MSI Armor RTX 2070 ($550), so far it's been working great. Otoy just released their version 4 of OctaneBench so I have been running the card through the bench. Right now it's just below a GTX 1080ti by about 4 to 6 points (213). Not bad with no RT cores being used, according to Otoy's testing the cards can get twice the speed when the RT cores are used, and that is not optimized yet. The 2070 is twice as fast as my old GTX 980 and has double the vram so I'm happy for now. In fact it's not much below a 2080, about 15 points. https://render.otoy.com/octanebench/

    [Solved] New display tablet, no pen pressure

    Sergii, gave me the fix, it's working great now! Jason
  5. Hi, I just purchased a new display tablet, XP-Pen Artist 13.3, for my Linux Mint 19 system. It works great with Krita but in 3D-Coat I'm not getting any pressure changes for radius or depth/opacity. XP-Pen has their own driver for Linux which, at this time, is somewhat limited on what settings I can change. I have tried all of the pen settings in 3D-Coat but I'm not seeing anything change. I'm running version 4.8.23 for Linux. Any insights would be great? Thanks, Jason

    I'm running 384.59, I just updated it a couple of week ago.

    I have a launcher on the Cinnamon desktop that I edited to point to the new version. Does that make a difference?

    I'm having a problem with this latest version, no smart materials show up. Do I need to do an extra step? I did run the copy data from the previous version, but not even the smart materials that I created before have shown up.

    3DCoat 4.7 (BETA testing thread)

    I'm having issues using Renderman on Linux. 3D-Coat complains that it isn't installed, although I have it installed and running on my system. I have it working with the Blender plugin and I can run it via the command line. My system is Linux Mint 18.2 and Renderman is installed in /opt/pixar/RenderManProServer-21.3 Using 3D-Coat version 4.7.36, although the window header says 4.7.35 Is there any way to point 3D-Coat to the install? I didn't find any preferences to set that.

    Help with smart materials

    I put in a mantis issue on the layer problem as it's still a problem in 4.7.24: http://3dcoat.com/mantis/view.php?id=2273

    Thanks, I was able to down load the file. Wget had to restart the process several times for it to work. I have been noticing issues with my network connection of late.

    The 4.7.24 Linux download is broken, when downloaded it's only 24 KBytes in size. Edited: looks like it's either a network error or a server error. I'm doing a wget that is more resilient with those issues. Seems to be working better. Thanks.
