    Depth Painting on Normals

    At the top of the window in the Paint room you'll see a drop down menu that says Always by default. Click that and pick "more on convex". You'll also find a Degree slider next to that which will allow you to control the intensity.

    Oh man haven't seen any mention of this in years. I don't even know if it exists anymore.

    3D Coat Trial Version 4.8.32 - Many Bugs?

    I actually just delt with this importing for retopology issue while I was doing a art test for a job interview a couple weeks ago. I modeled the whole thing in LightWave and wanted to do the painting and UV in 3DC. So I did kinda what was in the video above, from the start screen imported for UVs and I got nothing. The problem might be the same with importing for retopo. I remembered that the mesh has to have a UV map already on it, which is kind of backwards. So I went back to LightWave and and a super simple UV. Didn't even bother making it look nice. Once in 3DC I could create a new map and delete the bad one.

    New tutorial: General sculpting workflow

    I posted this in another thread but I thought I'd share it here so the general public can see it. This is a video showing the basic workflow that I use when sculpting, starting from a sphere, sculpting a bit, showing retopo, UV map creation, then moving into the paint room and doing some texturing. I talk a little bit about some of the basic tools that I use most often including a little on a great program called PureRef for viewing reference images.

    The reason you can't paint on the mesh in your video (in the beginning) is that it doesn't have a UV map so 3DC doesn't know where the paint should go. As far as rotating, even without the Alt key, you'll notice that there's a thin line making a boarder all around the edge of the viewport. If you drag in that area you'll always be able to navigate.

    You shouldn't really end up with any of you're only clicking on the mesh. In most cases you can delete one by hovering the mouse over it and it will turn white, then hit Delete. Occasionally I'll get one that just won't delete. Then I just ignore it.

    I made a video today on the workflow I use for sculpting. Starting from a sphere in the sculpt room, moving to retopo, setting up UVs, and painting some textures.

    When you click the Mark Seems button in the Retopo room a bunch of UV tools appear that are related to UVs. Including the ones you mentioned. The vast majority of the tutorials on the official 3D-Coat channel are very good. I only have a couple 3DC related videos on my channel but I have done tutorials elsewhere like 3D World magazine.

    Remember a lot of the people making those videos are in the forum here, myself included. Careful coming in here asking for help then trash talking the videos. People may be less willing to help. If you're in the retopo room you can do the UVs right there, when finished it gets baked right into the Painting room. No need to even go to the UV room.

    State of Win 10 Creators Update -> Tablet -> Pen ?

    This would be great news if my laptop didn't just die. Hopefully I can get it fixed.

    [Solved] Polys missing from UV map

    Oh I found the problem. The poly was an n-gon, there was a hidden point I didn't see. I've removed it and unwrapped again. It looks fine now. Thanks!
