    3DC 4.9 Upgrade

    I think the versions are standalone so you should just be able to download and install the new version (and then use the old version if you want/need, though you may not be able to backport projects into older versions of 3dC). I may be remembering incorrectly for Windows/MacOS though, haven't had enough caffeine to want to face the resident Windows box yet XD If you run the new version and open the help menu there should be an item to install the license key. I seem to remember it being able to do it by itself if you have ap revious version on the same computer, otherwise dig through your emails for the license key you would have gotten with the previous purchase or go to the bottom of the buy page and enter the email you used to register your 3dC to retrieve it.
  3. In the paint room one of the layer options is subtract depth, is what what you want? (I'm assuming you're in the paint room)

    Retopo shells in sculpt room

    I think I found out why my great balls of voxels were happening XD I've been trying to bake normals again while I was doing procedurals in Blender I noticed that the UV seam lines had baked into the normal map for whatever reason. Finally entered my head to check the sculpt mesh in wireframe mode and it looks like those shell things from the bake dialogue made their way into the sculpt room. Is that how it's supposed to work? o_O I'm using 4.8.23, there's nothing more recent for linux.

    Great balls of voxels

    I'm the only one on the entire internet with this problem eh, ahh nothing unusual there XD So I eventually figured out that I could export the sculpt mesh (I'm super slow and while I realised the menus were contextual I didn't really realise the menus were contextual x_x) so I did that with no reduction (because reduction lost some tiny details), imported it into a new file, imported my retopo mesh and baked that with inside scan of 1 and outside scan of 2 (the inside scan had to be a non-zero integer for whatever reason, then the outside scan had to be not as huge as I'd been making it in previous tests) and the snap to closest along normal and we got somewhere Not quite perfect (mostly because I don't know how to use the brush thingi that's on the bake tool) but a hell of a lot easier to clean up than my last attempts

    [Solved] Turn off paint objects in retopo room

    Stupid question, are you deleting the actual paint room object or just layers? If you click the eye in the paint objects tab that should hide it (or click the bin if you want it completely gone).

    [Solved] Problèm . The PAN is not like before

    @Kargall I was able to reproduce the behaviour I think you're describing by turning the nib touch requirement I have set for my CCH for right and middle click off. I think it's called hover clicks or something like that, could you try turning them off (at least for 3dC) and see if that helps?

    Great balls of voxels

    Actually it's in surface mode but that didn't roll off the tongue as well. Hello! It's been a while :S (sorry!) I wanted to come back and show off all the stuff I've learned over the last [checks] 3 years x_x but I've had to ask for help instead ^_^; Can someone please tell me what might be causing these shenanigans so I can fix it? It started out like this: I have a retopo mesh in the retopo room and I've been doing "Bake sculpt mesh onto paint room mesh" (although it doesn't seem to have made any difference what baking option I used and whether there was dithering or an existing paint room mesh or not, I've been trying many things x_x): The explosion in the first pic happens at some point before or at the beginning of the bake (I don't actually know how the baking process works which is probably the entirety of the problem) and then I end up with this entertaining result in the paint room XD: My wild guesses are there's something screwy with the sculpt mesh (I did run the mesh doctor tool over it in the sculpt room, it can do everything but the flipped faces thing, that makes it claim it's out of virtual memory even though it never maxes out my ram and barely touches my swap, and then it crashes and burns o_O) or how I'm doing the shells (I literally have no idea what I'm doing there, I'm a bit hopeless at baking). I don't recall having this issue with my last model (which was a bit more complicated) and I'm pretty sure I did the same or similar enough steps. If worse comes to worse I can just paint the normal map myself in the interests of finishing this character but I'd like to know what I'm breaking I'm using 3dC 4.8.23(GL64) which seems to be the latest linux beta, the operating system is Manjaro 18.1.1. Feel free to yell at me if I missed anything that might be useful. Thanks

    Thought pan was middle click? Or did I completely misunderstand what you're doing? (which is highly probable)

    Weird "fractures" when hiding surfaces

    I scaled the model up a bit which has helped with the near plane clipping annoyance. The fractures are still happening when I'm surface hiding or working through or in the vicinity of a hidden surface is (which is a little disruptive). The frazzled bits in the above pic were hidden earlier, and reappeared like that when I started hiding the partially hidden neat part next to it. They also do that when I'm sculpting, and can be affected by brushes. I rehide it but sometimes have to angle just so in ways I don't yet understand (still trying to get a handle on the surface hide brush, didn't think it would be that hard, have never felt so stupid using a tool before XD)

    'Ello 'ello 'ello, what's all this then!

    Welcome on board If DAZ can UV map and/or Ptex (and I am currently assuming it can at least do one of those things because all 3d apps should) everything will be fine Painting shouldn't be too hard if you know how to colour and I don't think you will regret the purchase there. There's a comment in another post with a link to some beginner videos if that helps start getting your head around things

    Weird "fractures" when hiding surfaces

    Bigger model scale as in make the model bigger or modify some setting somewhere? This one is about 1.5m or so in Blender but I don't know what that translates into in 3dc. It seems to import them tiny (or at least in some way that I can't see them) and then asks me something about scale, I tell it to keep the scale and then the imported model appears/is enlarged. Thanks for always being helpful

    Hello all, new here

    Welcome on board
  14. Hello again! How has everyone been? I've been busy trying to do a mouth cavity, one of my "favourite" things XD So anyway I was trying to hide pretty much everything else so I could a) see what I was doing and b ) so the brush would stop affecting things in the distance that I didn't want it to affect (but that it would do anyway because it simply refuses to deal with things at a certain closeness to the "camera") when this happened: I can eventually make it go away and it doesn't appear to have any ill effect (if I unhide everything and wireframe I can't see anything wrong anywhere), I'm more curious about what causes it and could it be related to this thing that happens where every now and again, particularly if I'm working close or on a particularly thin part, a voxel or something will fly off into the stratosphere causing this random skinny spike that the easiest way to fix is undo? I haven't yet worked out how to avoid either of these problems but can muddle around them at least. Possibly related, while I've been trying to hide things, sometimes there appears to be an invisible surface/object in the way when I'm trying to hide surfaces, I'll be brushing over them but they refuse to go away. I can brush over them with one of the sculpt brushes from the same distance but the hide surface brush acts on something else that I can't see whichever way I rotate. Hopefully will finish the teeth tonight or tomorrow so I can paint this one up and rig it!

    Brushing only on surfaces facing camera

    I couldn't come up with something that would illustrate the problem at the time, sorry XD Of course I worked out how I could have done one now and will do that if problem persists. I'll try the hide thing, thanks (once I find it again, I'm sure I saw something about hiding when I was doing something completely unrelated)
