  1. In the paint room, I have a particular layer with an old retopo-bake that need`s deleting. The delete button does delete other layers, but not this particular layer. (There are newer, baked layers in the list, so deleting this particular layer would not leave the room empty of content or other layers) Deleting "Layer 0" is seems impossible.
  2. I'm not sure if this is the best place to post this question. I wonder if there should be a place for new users learning to use the application and are getting stuck on specific methods. My question: Why can't I paint on some parts of a model after making an ambient occlusion layer? When using some materials, 3D-coat needs to calculate and create an ambient occlusion layer, and a curvature layer. Fine. I don't necessarily understand why it needs to make these for me to use the texture, but that's not really the problem. The problem is that in the areas that it is darkened with AO, I am unable to paint that texture. Why is that the case? And, how can turn off the ambient layer and paint into those empty areas? Here you can see that there is a place on this model that has an empty place that can't be painted on, and from what I can tell it's all the areas that are darkened with AO. Maybe there's a different reason? Because of piece overlaying? What am I doing wrong? Any help very welcome.
  3. Hi All, just using some free time at work to get some things sorted in my brain. I am a relatively new user of 3D coat and am really enjoying it. Sometimes I get a bit frustrated with the different rooms inside it and how things change but it's coming along. Out of curiosity I am just wonder what the proper workflow is to go from HP to LP game ready asset. Is this correct; - Sculpt HP in sculpt room - Retopo LP in Retopo room - UV Retopo - Bake Normal Map - Paint HP in paint room - Bake Textures (little confused on how to bake in the paint room with the options in the Texture menu.) I've only used Substance before to bake and paint. Thanks for your help.
  4. As I was UV mapping a model yesterday I assumed that the Complex Checker orientation needed to be readable to be correct, but that doesn't seem to be right at all. Here all of the islands are rotated and flipped so that I can read the complex texture (I assumed that's how it's supposed to work): But the result had the opposite effect. I could paint and it would appear as I expected, but on the UV map, everything was backwards–flipped and rotated in the wrong direction: Starting over, I rotated all the islands so that they were upside down. (didn't need to flip anything, they were all already backwards): The end result shows that the painting is in the right orientation: Is it supposed to be that way? Am I always to assume now that my UVs need to be backwards to be correct? Anyone else experiencing the same thing? I'm using version 4.5.23C. Thanks!
  5. Hi, Sorry for all my questions, but I'm still exploring 3D Coat, and loving it. I was wondering: If you take a voxel object straight from the Sculpt room to the Paint room, you'll be painting with vertex colors. What's the best / easiest way to convert a sculpted voxel object to an automatically UV-mapped mesh that's ready for UV painting in the Paint room? I assume the key room for this is the Retopo room, but what steps should I take if I want the voxel object to be meshed and get UVs in stead of going through retopology? Many thanks, Metin
  6. Hey folks, I have a question about Exporting Textures. So, I have a finished model that I have unwrapped and UVd and then painted in the paint room. But when I brought it into Unreal I am not happy with the resolution of the texture and I am already at 8k. (was hoping to get it all on one UV) Now I have gone back and split the model into separate pieces and am hoping there is a way to import them individually and bake/apply the previous painting I did to that section, OR. Do i need to paint all these separate parts again? please say it isn't so!
  7. Hello, I've been using 3D-Coat for a good while now but I've never run into an issue quite like this. When I import this particular model that I've been given to texture, I noticed that there were these strange diagonal bands in the texture editor. I didn't think much of it at first but when I paint with depth information, the depth gets applied at maximum strength when inside these bands regardless of what the brush strength is. This only seems to happen with this particular model. I've included the .obj version, but I can't figure out what aspect of the model may be causing this. The bands don't seem to correlate with any of the edges on the model. There is only 1 UV set on the mesh (I've checked it in 3ds Max, Blender, and Maya, all showing the same thing). The problem occurs regardless of whether I export it as a .fbx or a .obj. This problem occurs with this model in both 3D-Coat 4.5 and 4.7 regardless of the texture resolution I specify when I import the model for per-pixel painting. Any ideas on what might be causing this? You help is much appreciated! HumanShip01_Arm.obj
  8. Hello, I am playing with 3Dcoat for a while but recently I came to this video: https://vimeo.com/206531457 Here guy decimates objects in S mode but how then he imports it for painting? How did he achieved automated UV map in paint mode? I tried several approaches for import decimated mesh but results were usually crashing. Thank you!
  9. I am attempting to bring into 3d coat a high poly model, to which i will want to retopo, followed by painting onto the high poly to then bake down to the low poly. How do I bring in the High poly model into 3d coat to allow me to do these steps? The high poly model is not unwrapped or has its uv's laid out, but I am told that this is not required when it comes to painting onto the high poly to then bake down to the lower.
  10. Using Demo to understand the 3DC engine! Just got the correct exports for Octane out of 3DC, use the Arnold export not the Octane Preset. As I import an object to paint on I tried a CHAIR. It has two surfaces...metal legs and fabric top. I see both in the Surface Materials TAB. But using the layers for doing the actual painting I don't see a way to reference them. So I paint as close to each surface as I can, treating it as all one LAYER. This can't be the best way.... What am I missing?
  11. Hi... I am texturing a mechbird I modeled in Groboto3D, Hexagon3D & Wings3D. The mechbird is comprised of 4 separate objects - body, head, right wing, left wing. All four objects are imported into 3DC and uvmapped and painted (which I would like to add is a very pleasurable experience). The body was saved as a 3DC file. The head and wings are also saved as a 3DC file and also exported as OBJs. When I'm finished I open the body 3DC and then import the head, right wing & left wing OBJs. However I lose the metalness (glossiness of the head & wings). Below are screen captures of the body & head in the paint room after being uvmapped.
  12. I'm working on a robot which I modeled in Groboto and Hexagon. The head is composed of several smaller objects (head, nose, ear, eyes, antenna, etc) which can all be imported as separate objects in Wings3D, Hexagon, Silo, Vue Complete or 3D Coat. So far I've uv mapped & painted the head, nose and ear as separate objects 3DC. UV Mapping in 3DC is a very enjoyable endeavor. In the paint room I also created some details with normal maps. Here's the head
  13. Ok, so being fearly new to 3D coat, there are a lot of basic things that elude me. Like how to apply or swap a simple material? So I've been working pretty back in forth on my UV's for an item i am painting right now. What I want to do is simply import the new version of my UVs and continue painting with the layers and material I already have in my scene. However, I can't seam to figure out any straight forward way of going this. The only way I have been able to do is so fare is by starting a new scene with my new obj, import all my photoshop layers (which is not acting weird now that I've started using layer group folders *see this question thread for details on that*) So ya! Basically what this question boils down to is: how do I update a mesh(obj) that I modified in a 3rd party program (Maya) back into 3D coat and have it use my existing material and paint layers! Thanks a bunch!
  14. Hello When painting multi tile mesh in paint room If you use the blurring tool at the boundary, strange edges will appear. What should I do?
  15. Hi, all! After creating and unwrapping a UV map, I can see the UV preview in the Retopo room-- but when I switch to the UV room, there's nothing there...can someone help? Thanks! Bryan
  16. Hi, all! I was under the impression that you could bake 'render room' shaders onto an object so that the material can be exported as images along with the mesh. If this is possible-- how the heck is it done? I can't seem to figure it out... Thanks! Bryan
  17. Hi, I'm kinda new to this program and after watching a few courses i got stuck here: the problem I have is that after i sculpt and then bake the objects, I dunno why in the paint room i cannot see anything in the layers, even if they are shown in paint objects. Maybe I understood wrong, but how can I get different materials if they are not separed in different layers? Thank you for the answer and the patience
  18. Hey, Pretty noob to 3d coat, so sorry if this is obvious..... Painting the underside of the mesh is very difficult if you also need to see Normal map Info or just lighting in general. There doesn't seem to be a way to easily & quickly flip the model to allow easier access to the underside. The problem is that it's just too dark. I can use the flat shaded view.... but my painting needs to follow the normal info. which isn't visible in flat shaded mode obviously. I can increase the overall light intensity but that just seems to blow out all the colours and makes them not representative of the final texture at all. I can go to the tweak room and rotate and then come back... but that's not really ideal at all. the ambient light setting seems to do nothing in this view. otherwise that would be a workaround of sorts., ideally there would be quick rotation tools in the paint room or a way to rotate the environment map on more than 1 axis. Are there any work arounds that people use? any help would be greatly appreciated. cheers
  19. Seems like the spline can't be transformed with Spline Menu / Transform All while the 2D/3D grid snapping is on. Does that work for you? Bug report: http://3dcoat.com/mantis/view.php?id=2204
  20. Hi people Still learning painting in 3DCoat and maybe a stupid question, but when I am paint a model like Genesis 3 it have many UV islands for arms, head, torso and others. Using CUBe pojection to paint solve almost all my problems and create new ones. BUT I want to know if theres a way to paint with a pattern like in the image across the UV islands ang that the brush get the same size in whole object. Theres a way to do that or I need to really change the brush size to match the others islands? Look the image how the head, arms and torso have diferent sizes. Thanks
  21. Hi Guys, I've recently started learning fusion360 and I've figured out a workflow to export the mesh from there to 3dsMax and convert into an FBX. The problem I'm having is when I import the FBX to 3dCoat nothing shows up. Substance Painter has no issues so I'm wondering if it's just that 3dCoat doesn't read FBX files? ver: 4.7.06 ps: I can import OBJ files just fine, I would just rather have my object separated as it is in my FBX file
  22. Here is my first attempt at creating a PBR material in 3D Coat. If anyone likes it or thinks it is useful, let me know and I will post more when I create them. Cracked red paint. Will add grunge layers later. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B9Fn0PckWXZXNWRSNHg5UHI2ZDg
  23. Предлагаю сделать так- чтоб можно было запекать каждый воксельный слой в отдельный цвет на Color ID map. И потом соответственно чтобы можно было красить лоу-поли модель используя цвета Color ID как маску. Например - ботинок на одном воксельном слое, а завязаные на нём шнурки - на другом. Соответственно на Color ID map - шнурки будут одним цветом, ботинок другим. Это позволит аккуратно раскрасить шнурки в один цвет, а ботинок в другой. Также неплохо было бы сделать - чтоб можно было одновременно скульптить и красить одной кистью - как в zBrush
  24. Как получить маску или Color ID для раздельной покраски деталей? Я сделал небольшой объект для примера. Будет сделана ретопология этого объекта. Шестерёнка и кубик будут цельным объектом. И только кубик будет сделан геометрией - а на месте шестерёнки будет плоский полигон. Шестерёнка будет запечена в карту нормалей и после этого покрашена. Как сделать так, чтобы шестерёнку можно было красить отдельно от кубика? - И так чтобы не рисовать заморозку вручную. Можно ли как-то запечь отдельную маску для шестерёнки? Или любым другим образом автоматически разделить её с кубиком - так чтобы при покраске кисть не красила кубик, а красила только шестерёнку. Шестерёнка и кубик находятся на разных воксельных слоях - это может как-то помочь в создании масок?
