    New Curves Beta

    Hi, I was absent some time and have now downloaded a new version of 3DC. I must say, like the new curves. They are really powerfull (looking at ZBrush ;-)). Wanted to mention a minor point from UI design perspective. If you click on the curve button, the viewport is resized and the curve buttons appear. I think it would be nicer if the buttons are attached at the top of the view instead (pic1). This would insure that there is no "flickering" when the view is resized, because a resize of the view would not be necessary (pic 2).

    3dcoat curve stroke on zbrush?

    ZBrush has no such thing unfortunately. There are some workarounds, but really not as good as the curves in 3D Coat. You could use curve mode. But it is too unflexible and really annoying to use.
  4. Perhaps some pics would help more? When it looks bad, why not upping the polygon count. What is your target, game, film?

    Painting question

    You can create a new layer in painting room and set standard blend mode. Then any new paint stroke will overwrite the old ones if the new layer ist above the old one.

    not recognized pressing the stylus Surface pro 4

    Perhaps you have the fall creators update and you are using wintab drivers? They seem broken. Use Tablet PC drivers in the Preferences.

    3DCoat 4.8 BETA testing thread

    Yes, it is not so fast but possible when switching to ortho. Personally I think there are more important things to consider. For example adaptive voxels or improving the brushes. That would be nice. I think it is better to improve the sculpting features and not to try to be better than some 3d apps. For this we have Maya and Co.

    3DCoat 4.8 BETA testing thread

    The inner circle lets you transform in screen space (2-axis). So you can shift orbit in position and then transofrm with the inner circle. Or am I missing something ?

    Seperating paint objects question

    When you have different parts in maya (multiple mesh parts) then they are seperated in 3d coat when you use obj format. in the voxtree or retopo objects you can than hide the individual parts.

    Issues with autopo

    Perhaps the topology is not nice ? Holes and such...

    Oh yes, sometimes I forget to hide the sculpt mesh in the paint room too. There is an option in paint room to hide the sculpt mesh, but unfortunately this option is not safed, so you have to reactivate it every time (feature request for saving).

    Issues with autopo

    You can view it when you go to retopo room. The model in sculpt room is displayed beside the retopo mesh in retopo room. So you can hide it in the VoxTree with the eye symbol. The VoxTree can be found in windows -> popups in the menu. Hope it helps.
