    PBR Smart Materials Store Beta!

    I made a tutorial on the free app Materialize that will help you make Smart Materials.

    Bad results with airbrush

    My first thought is that the image size looks too low. I normally use 2048 or higher, but of course that depends on your needs.

    3DCoat 4.8 BETA testing thread

    Especially on Christmas day of all times.
  4. For you LightWavers I just made a new LWCad tutorial that is up for sale on Liberty 3D. It's 1.5 hours long and covers building a house from scratch including the inner walls, stairs, doors and windows, a deck, even a roof with modeled shingles. Right now it's even 25% off with the code:" MeowyChristmas2018 " https://www.liberty3d.com/2018/12/house-modeling-with-lwcad/

    Well that's ok. The mouse would help your work though. Just saying...

    What joke? It's the best thing you can buy if you do 3D sculpting or painting.

    You don't really need the latest 3D Conexxion Mouse. I got my Spacepilot on ebay for $50 like 10 years ago and I still use it with no problem today. I see one on there right now for $40 (Buy It Now).

    I keep several versions too but if you do need to download an older one you can just copy the link into your address bar and change the number in the file name, then hit Enter. At least that has worked in the past.

    Texture Problems

    What I usually do in that case is use the Live Clay tool with zero depth on the problem areas. That will add more geometry.

    Texture Problems

    Another thought. If you're just in surface mode and didn't have a UV map, then it's just coloring the vertices (points) on the mesh, not actually painting on an image. In that case having more points will give you more detail. So areas that don't look good might have a low poly count. You could tell by hitting W to see the wireframe.

    Texture Problems

    Here's a whole list of quick start tutorials. There are also a lot of other tutorials on that channel.

    Texture Problems

    Hard to tell exactly but it looks like a UV map problem. Did you check those polys on the UV to make sure they're shaped correctly?

    Will these zipped .3b files open in older versions of 3DC? I don't plan to downgrade or anything but it would be good to know if that will be a problem.

    Smart Materials across multiple UV Tiles?

    Yeah, that should be no problem. I just tested it. Made a quick object with 2 UV maps and painted a Smart Material all over it.
  15. There's a free texture generator similar to Crazy Bump or PixPlant called Materialize. I made a tutorial on it including using the materials in 3D-Coat's Smart Materials. The tutorial premieres at 4pm Eastern today. There is a chat room open before and during the premiere. Come chat CG with us!
