  1. Crisis averted, a 'fresh' install linked to all my libraries etc, and all is right with the world
  2. Hi guys, I have never had this happen before. Hadn't updated in a while, then yesterday used the autoupdate. It dumped the .exe (and I don't know what else). I can't say what version I was on, but hadn't updated in at least 3 months. Haven't ever had this happen before, anyone else?
  3. Absolutely EXQUISITE work by Kargall once more. Beyond inspiring
  4. ....And now I remember how to do it
  5. Thanks @Carlosan! Wow, you are fast!. I Just came here to post this up, and couldn't remember how to post my images in my gallery!!
  6. Many thanks @Carlosan, sorry for the delay in reply. Really appreciate the quick responses to help that you guys give
  7. Hey guys, Can anyone tell me how to overcome this? latest 3DC version. Importing low res mesh from Blender 3.0 into paint room, as an .obj This is my result. Also getting super weird little artefacts from decimated mesh inside 3DC, 97-98 % reduction. But this blender one is really significant. Cheers legends (updating to latest NVIDIA drivers now, just in case)
  8. Dudes, How do I get displacement working in the paint room, please? I just tried to follow a tutorial, but mesh was so dense it crashed my machine. Win 10 64 bit, i7 processor, 32 gig DDR3. Any tips appreciated, I am wondering if it is going to be easier to use blender for displacement, (but modeling in 3DC) I want to fake hard surface panel breakups. Using new 2021, and tried to follow this tute : I got to creating the occlusion layer, and could see mesh if I hit 'w' but invisible otherwise. Don't know what I am doing wrong? I want to be able to create displacement ideally like Octane does, or Blender. Thanks in advance for the help, and I am really liking 3DC 2021
  9. Alright guys, I am officially going insane. Thank you all for the previous help. On top of the fact that I cannot get the Applink to work in blender anymore, (also can't move 3DCoat data, every place I tried to move it to said I didn't have permission) due to not being able to see the 3DCoat tab in the 'n' panel, I cannot get 3DCoat to export textures at all out of the paint room. No retopo performed, so that could be the issue, but the applink file had no retopo work done, but at one point the .obj and my textures were imported into Blender? What does the applink create in blender to get some form of UV to work? My other question is why are my textures coming out fully gray when I export normally, not using the applink (which has disappeared anyway)? Using 3DC 4.9.72 Blender Please, help me send this cool looking ship, into Blender with the applink, or at least get my seat exporting textures, this is sending me nuts. I have googled, I have watched, I have done copious amounts of trial and error....
  10. The applink broke again in Blender, can't see the 3DCoat tab at all.
  11. Thanks bro! That confirms it then. I just willmake much better use of the smart material preview window, and be more systematic with my material application from now on pulling it apart, it looks like I made that ‘effect’ from two layers of varying opacity. Not the best way to do it, obviously making a custom SM with those specific textures and opacities is much for efficient. I have so much to learn about texturing in 3DC (or any 3D other than Keyshot) at least I am on the journey now
  12. Hey dudes! Can anyone please tell me, is there a way to see which smart material is on an object, please? I made a lot of smart materials, and need a faster way to work out which one was the successful one ? The eyedropper tool doesn't seem to highlight the active smart material for that part of the mesh? Thanks in advance.
  13. Thanks so much, legends @tokikake and @Carlosan!!! The issue was the 2021 install. This makes me so happy
  14. This makes me think…I have installed the 2021 trial, which has since expired… maybe it is looking for that, or it is interfering in some way
  15. Thanks @Carlosan! Appreciate how quickly you got back to me. I hope he is able to get it running soon, it is a fantastic tool :) I gather if I go back to an old blender it should work then, in the meantime
