    Textures don't export with mesh.

    Something strange, I used to be able to export from the file, export and dialog using these setting seen here in the image. But it's only exporting the obj file, and not any of the textures. For it to work, I have to choose a preset with export constructor, or export from the Layers menu. 3D-coat 4.9.04 , Mac, Mojave.
  2. 4.8.40 crashes when I even go to the UV room. I have to resort back to 4.8.20!
  3. Just chiming in... I'm getting this problem too. I'll try 4.8.40 until it's fixed.
  4. Ah! I didn't know about that feature! Yes that worked perfectly, thank you!

    [Solved] Mac OS Version - 3DCoat Icon for Dock

    That's odd, because I use the Mac version and I see a really nice 3D coat logo, icon in my Dock.
  6. I updated from 4.8 to 4.9 and it didn't transfer my most current smart materials and presets. Can I transfer them manually?

    Must quit 3D-coat and reopen to see painted depth.

    Hi Carlosan, I updated to 4.9.02 and the specular works post UV, but I still need to save and restart 3Dcoat to see depth painting.

    I'm using 4.8.20 (GL64). Mac Version
  9. Every time I finish the UV mapping workflow and then start painting in the paint room, everything is painting correctly except depth and sometimes specular. I have to quit 3D-coat and reopen the file to see the painted depth and specular attributes. And at that point, painting depth works as expected. Is this a known bug?

    [Solved] Eraser tool not erasing glossiness and color.

    Hi Carlosan, Thanks! I found this page here that has a load of great information, but there's no mention of the Paint as Pencil there under the erase section... https://3dcoat.com/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=general:paint_workspace:tools

    [Solved] Eraser tool not erasing glossiness and color.

    Awesome. Thanks. I couldn't find that in the manual anywhere, but that makes sense now.

    [Solved] Eraser tool not erasing glossiness and color.

    Hi Carlosan, thanks, yes those Chanels are on. I figured it out. "Act as Pencil" needed to be ticked on. Now it erases everything like I expect. What does Act as pencil do?
  13. I applied a gloss color, with a smart material on the edge of an airplane model, and I'm trying to erase a portion of it with the erase tool, but it's not fully erasing for some reason. It seems to erase the glossiness, but not the color. Any idea what might be happening here?
  14. Confirmed, I am using 4.8.20 I think I know what I'm doing wrong. I've been kind of using an incorrect paint workflow all this time!
  15. Sure... here are some screen captures. I am using a Roughness/Metalness workflow. Currently, I'm controlling the level of gloss by painting it on another layer and then controlling the amount via Roughness Opacity on the layer blending.
