    3DCoat 4.9 BETA testing thread

    Got a little quiet here; assuming this is due to the focus on getting the Mac version updated. Hard to explain but there are a lot of performance issues across the sculpt room since the recent move tool fix.

    Presets vs Default Brushes

    @Carlosan, how did you get the Custom group and to those settings?

    Also, the sluggishness is on a higher tri count than the base sphere for those testing this.

    Regarding Rygaard's last post, I can confirm Live Clay Tools being sluggish once the radius gets up over 20. Basically unusable at that size and above. Smaller radius is fine though (for me). I have the same complaint for the smooth brush; once the radius is set larger, it is unusable. @Andrew Shpagin, the move tool is now awesome, ty. Could you have refactored something that impacted many of the other brushes? Even the snake clay is acting up once the radius is bumped up a bit.

    Presets vs Default Brushes

    Yes, that and many other settings can be controlled by the preset mechanism. After you use a handful of brushes, you have no awareness of how a tool/brush is going to work without testing it. This is why I said it seems like if you are going to use presets, you have to stick to just presets.

    Presets vs Default Brushes

    It seems that the solution is to duplicate the actual brush first (right click and choose duplicate and give it a proper name) before using any presets of that brush. This gives you one to base presets on and one to grab as an 'original'...something you can expect default functionality from. I don't find this very intuitive or user friendly. A preset should toggle you into a copy of the brush.

    Can't do a video at this time and screenshots won't capture it. This is for vox or sculpt mode. Res+ the starter sphere up to ~2million tris. The move tool will have a very obvious delay at that point.

    Presets vs Default Brushes

    @Carlosan, the above sequence is to use the default brush, switch to a preset based on the same brush, and then use a totally different brush so that you can switch back to what the sequence started with. But, you can't get back to the beginning since the preset is what is still being put into action.

    Presets vs Default Brushes

    Yes, below is a visual sequence.

    Presets vs Default Brushes

    (I haven't found an answer for this elsewhere, hopefully not a duplicate.) Using a new install sequence: Install the app. Open into surface sculpting. Use rapid smooth brush - get used to how it works by default, no tweaks besides radius/depth. Switch to the out of the box presets, choose Polish group and then select "Polish Flat" which is a preset configuration of the rapid smooth brush...basically it digs in. Now there is no switching back to a default rapid smooth brush that goes back to building up instead of digging in. That is, unless I switch to another preset that I like for the rapid smooth. The preferences settings for "Remember Brush..." and "Remember Own Brush..." don't make a difference here. Am I missing something? It feels like presets completely stomp on a default functionality that you would start with. This makes me use ONLY presets and therefore the nicer tool selector window and the space bar quick access window are of little value. I hope I'm missing something.

    @Andrew Shpagin, with limited tris, you can really get interactive with the move tool. No delay, as fast as you can click. Once I get a a certain amount of tris though, there is a 1-3 second delay at the end of each stroke.

    @Andrew Shpagin, I can confirm the spikes tool fix. Thank you. What are your thoughts on the move tool? I use it excessively but once up over 1m tris, it has a delay. Once you focus on this delay, it is hard to focus on anything else.

    Spike tool still crashes the app for me after a fresh .35 install. Also, move tool still very sluggish.

    Spike tool will instantly, or within 3 strokes, crash the app. Tested in DX and GL and happens in vox and surface mode. Bug report sent.

    SLOW move tool and smoothing.

    Thank you Carlosan, I'm in. This topic has been added to the beta testing thread in case anyone is following.
