  1. I may not have framed my question very well.  What I am getting at is that, for instance, in Blender, I can import an  2D image as a plane to use as background, reference or, if it has a transparent background, as a part of my scene.  The "Sample" 2D scans in 3D Coat's materials library don't seem to be the same kind of thing, or are they?  I was wondering how they can be used in a 3D project?  

    Thanks for your help!

  2. I have tried exporting my mesh from Blender to 3DC as a .ply; added some paint to it in 3DC;  when I use Export to Blender, it exports it as a .obj file.  Is that supposed to happen?  In addition, when I go back to Blender and import the painted mesh, frequently I can't find it on the screen anywhere, even tho it says it's there.  I'm spinning my wheels here.

  3. I think perhaps when I imported my mesh from Blender to be painted, I may have chosen the wrong import option.  What I have is an object that has not been UV'd & I just want to paint the vertexes & export the painted object back to Blender.  Should I use the "Import for Per Pixel Painting" option or the "Import for Vertex Painting/Big Reference"?  Also, if I wanted to try the "Simple 3DCoat" add-on, does it work with .obj files?

  4. Thank you AbnRanger, but when I opened the program today and tried the Snake tool everything was fine.  Yesterday I tried and tried, but the Snake tool kept giving me a snake with one of the built in Splines for Curves config.  Like instead of a clean snake, it would give me the "Spring" spline.  I could go in and change the spline but didn't know how to disable it altogether.  If you look at the "Stencils" menu,  there is a box you can pick to "Close" it and disable that function.  I don't see that option for the Curves Splines menu. I'm afraid to try to duplicate the issue I had yesterday in case I get stuck with the splines again if I want to use the Snake tool.  But here is a shot of the Stencils menu with the "Close" option I'm talking about.  It would be nice to have that same option in the Curves Splines menu.
