  1. 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.

    3DCoat 4.9 BETA testing thread

    This bug is still happening on version 4.9.17. Adjusting lighting is not working for the GL version.

    3DCoat 4.9 BETA testing thread

    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.
  4. Cool. Will you report? Or should I email the support address to notify Pilgway?
  5. 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.
  7. 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.
  9. When I adjust the light intensity with this control, it doesn't seem to affect the mesh. I can see that it affects the background, but the lighting on the mesh remains the same intensity. What am I doing wrong?

    Linux updates news

    I am also getting increasing pessimistic about seeing a native Linux build again. It has been an extremely long time. If I was Pilgway, I would be a bit uncomfortable about continuing to advertise and sell Linux licences. Having a native Linux version was a big selling point of 3D Coat for me. Admittedly, for reasons I won't go into, I actually purchased a Windows licence first. As it happens, this has worked out well for me, as I can use 3D Coat on Wine (more or less), but I would be pretty annoyed if I hadn't. I always intended (and still do intend) to purchase a Linux licence for 3D Coat. It kind of annoys me that you have to pay an additional $40 just to add another OS but, nevertheless, I was on the cusp of doing this right when the Linux builds were stopped. I therefore held off, and have held off ever since... I don't think Pilgway should underestimate the appeal of having a native Linux version. I am only a lowly hobbyist, but the Linux version what drew me in. In terms of sculpting, Zbrush and Mudbox aren't really an option for Linux users. In terms of painting, there is Substance Painter, but it is a pain to get running on anything other than CentOS, and I don't think it is as rich in features as 3D Coat. 3D Coat runs OK via Wine, but it will never be the ideal.
  11. I am a Linux user. Like a lot of other people on the forums, I am eagerly (and increasingly impatiently....) awaiting the native Linux builds of 3D Coat to resume. It seems like it has been a really long time now.... In the meantime, I have been running that latest version of 3D Coat via Wine. This isn't ideal, but it works.... OK. One of the big problems I had is that the Blender 2.8 3D Coat Applink add-on (that comes with Blender itself) does not work when 3D Coat is running via Wine. This annoyed me, so I have modified the script to work with 3D Coat via Wine. If any of my fellow Blender/3DCoat/Linux users would also like to use this, please find attached. I assume you will know how to install it but, if not, let me know. Here's hoping that actual Linux builds resume soon. io_coat3D(Wine).zip
