    Paint with textures

    Guys, I cannot figure out how to paint with the textures in latest versions of 3DC. All old tutorials on youtube show old 3DC interface with the Textures window, where all textures could be loaded. I cannot see this window. What is the workflow now? Thanks!

    Paint with textures

    Thanks for the tutorial. This part is clear to me but I have another task. Let say I have a model of the head and I need to apply textures to the head from 10-20 photographs of the human. In previous versions of 3DC I brought each image from Textures folder to viewport, scaled it to the right size and painted with the brush area I needed. Then I took another photograph and did the same. How can I do the same task in new version? I do not need smart material, only color layer.

    Paint with textures

    Let say I have 20 different images to paint with. Do I have to create smart material for each of them to start paint? How do I fast switch between them? Could someone point me to video tutorial how this process looks like now? I haven't had such problem in older versions of 3DC.

    3DCoat 4.9 BETA testing thread

    When I import a few meshes together for paint, 3DC creates UV sets with names wire_0000000, wire_1111111, .... Is it possible that name of the UV was same as the name of the mesh it belongs? I can't figure out which name of UV is for what mesh.

    3DCoat 4.8 BETA testing thread

    I had the similar problem in some applications. It looks like a transistor on video card makes this sound when video card in highly loaded by application. If you have the sound coming from the speakers then it might be something else.

    3DCoat 4.8 BETA testing thread

    I am curious when Smart Material Editor will be fixed. At the current moment material preview depends on active HDRI in viewport. It means that if I duplicate smart material, change HDRI in viewport, open Smart Material Editor and save material then new material will look different on preview because it was saved under new light condition even if material was not changed. This is absolutely wrong behavior. All materials need to be modified and previewed under one light condition. There are two solutions: 1. If we change HDRI in viewport all smart materials previews need to be recreated for the new HDRI to show how they will look before they will be applied to the model. 2. All smart materials previews and Smart Material Editor work with one HDRI and never change.

    I cannot get access to the MP4 file but when I make your steps there are no crashes.

    3DCoat features you would like to see resolved

    I am really missing Smooth Shade view with the wireframe on top in Sculpt room. I need to see shade view and wireframe together when I work on model with textures. The color of the wireframe needs to be adjustable.

    3DCoat 4.7 (BETA testing thread)

    In Smart Material Editor if I replace texture and open curve editor for this texture preview window still shows the old texture until I start to tweak this texture. I think this bug needs to be fixed. I also would like to have option to turn on/off texture in smart material editor and drag and drop textures between slots.

    What is VoXRay tool? Nothing happens when I apply it duplicates the existing geometry. Same is with the Coat tool. When I apply it to geometry it creates a layer with nothing in it.

    3DCoat 4.7 (BETA testing thread)

    Thank you for advice! Another question about retopology mesh. Why when I go to File->Import->Reference Mesh or New file->Perform Retopology->Import reference mesh I have nice smooth reference mesh with textures but if I go to Retopo room->Retopo->Import I have a mesh without textures and smooth groups. This is kind of annoying that program has so many duplicated commands and each of them work in a different way.

    3DCoat 4.7 (BETA testing thread)

    Is it possible to bring OBJ file for voxelization and keep smooth groups of geometry? When I use Import button in Sculpt room all geometry comes without smooth groups. Try to import a sample object cone, for example. Instead of smooth surface I have sharp angles.

    3DS Max Applink - Complete Rewrite

    I have been able to fix this problem by changing path in Applink from ..\Documents\3D-CoatV47\Exchange to ..\Documents\AppLinks\3D-Coat\Exchange The problem was only with importing to 3ds Max.

    3DS Max Applink - Complete Rewrite

    I have downloaded and installed the last Applink version 1.9 for 3ds max but still no luck. Applink in max cannot see the files which I export from 3DC. Maybe Windows 10 prevents to save the files in that folder. Which files should I check? What is funny is that applink works fine on my home computer, also with Windows 10.

    3DCoat 4.7 (BETA testing thread)

    I still would like to have all smart materials pictures (new or modified) to be saved with one standard lighting instead of current scene lighting. It is impossible to compare them with the current settings when their preview depends on the scene scene lighting.

    3DS Max Applink - Complete Rewrite

    Applink 1.8 does not work in Max2016 (Windows 10). I cannot install it using installer. I did a manual installation by coping applink files to the right folders. The Applink still does not work in Max2016. When I save model from 3DC to Exchange folder to open it 3ds max 2016 Applink does nothing. It cannot see the new file which needs to be imported. Export from Max2016 to 3DC works fine but from 3DC to Max2016 does not work. What should I check to fix it?

    V4.5 BETA (experimental)

    I try to install Applink for 3ds max 2016 and it fails. I have downloaded 3ds_Max_Applink_v1.8c.mzp from 3DC website and drag and drop it to 3ds max 2016 window. There is pop-up window with Install and Uninstall buttons. I click Install and receive an error message a few seconds later - Install failed.

    V4.5 BETA (experimental)

    3DC crashes if I leave it open when my PC turns display off due to the power safe mode. When I returned my PC back from the safe mode I got an error message about 3DC crash. I worked in 3DC_DX64bit_CUDA in paint room. Windows 7, Video card Quadro K5000, driver version 354.42. This crash happened in few last versions too but I rare use 3DC at this moment. Can someone confirm this bug, please?
