    [Fixed] Problem with imported UV maps

    Please ignore/delete the post. I solved this by exporting from Blender with a higher colour depth.
  2. I am having an issue with an imported UV map. Wondering if anyone could help me...? I created the normal map in Blender, and I am trying to import both the model and the normal map into 3D Coat for texture painting. As you can see from the screenshots, it looks very wrong. Something to do with the seams. I've tried FBX and OBJ. I've tried importing with and without flipping the Green channel (which is usually the problem), but no resolution. I am stumped. I am suspicious that it might be the alpha background to the normal map that is upsetting 3D Coat. Unfortunately, Blender seems entirely unwilling to bake without this transparent background (I am using the "bake from multires" function, which has no options at all!). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Linux updates news

    Version 4.9.69 works out of the box on Manjaro. This is great! I did see this error in the console: Gtk-Message: Failed to load module “xapp-gtk3-module” But was able to resolve it by following this: https://forum.manjaro.org/t/failed-to-load-module-xapp-gtk3-module/46039 That said, the error didn't seem to stop 3D Coat running in any event.
  4. 100% agree. I have never understood the "rules" by which attaching a material to a layer is supposed to work. However it is supposed to work, it seems inconsistent and buggy as hell.
  5. This bug is still happening on version 4.9.17. Adjusting lighting is not working for the GL version.
  6. Here is a video showing the issue. If it makes any difference, I am using 3D Coat on Linux via Wine, but it sounds like it could be a general issue.
  7. Cool. Will you report? Or should I email the support address to notify Pilgway?
  8. Right, I have isolated the problem. This is an issue for me with the GL version of 3D Coat only. If I use the DX version, it works as expected. Unfortunately, I can only use the GL version on my laptop. The DX version crashes for some reason. On my desktop, I can run both versions OK, and can now see where the problem lies. I am using the Windows version of 3D Coat on Linux via Wine.

    Blender Applink

    I have just realised that I should have posted this in this thread.
  10. That button works as the tooltip describes. The contrast is maximised, and the position of the environment map is locked. That doesn't change the issue regarding light intensity, however. I will try and record a video showing the problem later today.

    Blender and 3D Coat on Linux via Wine

    Hi My changes to the code are very minimal. If the version that ships with Blender works in languages other than English, then this modified version should also work in languages other than English. Nothing that I have done should make any difference to this issue. I have not tested it in any other languages.
