  1. I am familiar with how to use 3D PBR scans, but I have never used the 2D scans in the materials library, like the plant scans and such. Are they basically image files with a transparent background? Any tips appreciated.
  2. Hi all - I recently started learning Substance Designer, Painter, and 3DCoat. Usually one would take their materials generated in Designer and apply them in Painter, but after using 3DCoat for a couple of weeks, I'm just about convinced that 3DCoat's texturing setup feels much more accessible than Painter (lots of little 3DCoat advantages, like Zbrush-esque navigation which works wonderful with a tablet, able to quickly freeze/unfreeze UV shells, etc. but still learning both). I'm having a lot of trouble exporting my material maps from Substance Designer and importing them into 3D Coat while retaining the same look and feel of the original. Here are my current results, with the material applied to a cube in Substance Designer on the left, and those maps exported and applied to a cube in 3D Coat on the right. I have quite a few questions. Surely I'm doing something wrong? I created a new Smart Material, and for my "Color" Texture in 3D coat, I imported the base color texture from Substance designer. Depth texture in 3DCoat <-- Normal texture from SD. Roughness texture in 3DCOAT <-- Roughness Texture from SD. Metalness texture in 3DCOAT <-- Metallic texture from SD. Condition Mask Texture in 3DCOAT <-- Ambient Occlusion texture from SD (this one wouldn't be necessary, right?). I'm a bit confused, where does the height map texture exported from Substance Designer hook into 3DCoat's Smart Material? There seems to be no field for that. I made sure to generate the "CurvatureMap" layer in 3DCoat. With the SmartMaterial selected, I also used the buttons in the "Preview Options" window to adjust the size/position/rotation of my smart material being applied to the cube, but I still couldn't get it to look correct. In Substance Designer, notice my material intentionally has a large raised circle in the center of each face, but it's completely missing in 3DCoat, despite using the same texture maps. Just to note also, the default Smart Materials in 3DCoat work beautifully - it just seems to be these custom ones I'm making that just won't work. I've attached the maps exported from Substance Designer. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks! SD_to_3DCOAT_TextureMaps.rar
  3. Hi, I bought 3d coat and I have some issues with the PBR materials, when I click on a PBR shader, nothing happen. Only the description appears when the mouse goes over, nothing else. It's as if I click on an empty box. Need help. DxDiag_joachiml_09_27_18.txt Log_joachiml_9_27_18.txt

    Mighty Wings

    Been a while since posting. Model was done and rendered in Blender as well as smoke FX. All texturing was done in 3D Coat.
  5. Hello! How can i make glass PBR smart matterial>? Can anybody share it with me?
  6. From the album: Artworks

    For my collegues of Gaming Minds Studios I have created a 3D character prototype while the preproduction of their last hit Railway Empire. In the preproduction of Railway Empire we experimented with several types of Charakter styles. The Western Lady were sculpted in 3D-Coat., the textures and retopology were also done there. I transferred the model into Blender and set a very simple face rig, based on shape keys. The hair was created with Blenders hair system. The final is rendered with Blender Cycles. There was an arm rig too, but we rejected it. Even if the char went not into the final game, I like the Lady a lot and like to present it to you today. I have made some improvements in the hair style and used my CW Eye Material for her eyes. Drop me a line if you have any questions.

    Are CMYK PBR possible?

    Is it possible to work in CMYK instead of RGB in 3dCoat? I need to print the images in CMYK and don't wish to deal with transforming RGB to CMYK, nor the art of CALIBRATION to achieve the CYMK.

    PBR smart nightmare

    Hello. It is already 6 hours of nightmare with textures export of Smart Material. I can't export texture with high resolution as shown in preview and viewport. I read all topics about this problem, tried to change mesh and texture resolution (I set 16384 on start but baking allows only 8192 resolution) , bake textures (I set 16384 on start but baking allows only 4092 resolution) etc. and I already tried with high-poly mesh and 16 384 texture size, but exported image is blurry and terrible. Whatever I do - the result is always low-resolution blurry map. Please, help me! I can't sleep!

    PBR conversions

    Is there a documentation for converting pbr textures from one format to another from a developer standpoint? The math, algorithms and formulas behind pbr export and import. We are trying to write a plugin for exporting textures from our renderer but our dev doesn't understand the docs from https://www.marmoset.co/posts/pbr-texture-conversion/ as its too artist talk and not developer friendly.
  11. All environment pieces & level I did for The Burning Descent VR, for RyseUp Studios are here, the game run under Unreal Engine 4. I also helped on other fileds such as VFX art ( a little but super fun moments ! ), ConceptArt, Animation ( rigging & posing only for special purpose ) and Character's textures. I used 3DCoat for mostly everything except for stencils/Brushes creation ( PS ) with custom smartmaterials ( same used on SWR project =) ), ZBrush for all of those canyon rocks ^^ 3dsMax for all Lowpoly's and plenty of highpolys ( mostly when not organic ) MightyBake for baking. Special thanks to Anthony Daneluzzi, Fantin Gislette, Alexandre Cheremetieff, Jonathan Belot, Laurent Dessart, Guillaume Zannoni, Maxime Teppe, Coralie Bruchon, Adrien Chenet, Milen Ivanov, and evryone who helped bringing this game to life ! I really enjoyed working with all of you and I hope we'll keep teaming'up like that in the future =) The Burning Descent is a VR Game made@ RyseUp Studios in Lyon Full project here ( + viewers of each asset and some scene ) : https://www.artstation.com/artwork/ryzzm
  12. Hi guys, I know probably this is a easy thing but cant figure out how to fix it. In voxel mode when i change materials to use someone more confortable for sculpting the pose tool has no longer the colorfull gradient but a grey one. Its harder like this to see how its working.
  13. Hello guys I hope this is not a stupid question but Is there option to have smart material effect on textures when painting normal map? I noticed that material properties like for example rust on concave/convex etc are not showing on normal maps? Or is there need for any specific order of smart material and normal map in layer tree?

    18 Tiled materials

    18 tile materials inside - (DOWNLOAD - https://www.dropbox.com/s/rr5gk5l7wcsawyq/18 tile materials and textures - Arno Leonardo (%40X-Ymodelling).zip?dl=0 ) Pack 1: Pack 2: I = new to making materials - would love to know what you thinks :] thank you !
  16. my first glass attempts in 3D-Coat: ClearGlass.3dcpack IMPORTANT: Make sure Layer 0 opacity - 25% or lower! then on layer one (or any other layer above 0) use the glass material. make sure the material is on 100% opacity but the layer opacity is on a low % (me = typically choose 15% or less) --- message me if you = need any help sorting it out :]
  17. https://www.cgtrader.com/challenges/real-life-objects-pbr-challenge Real-life objects PBR challenge End of February marked the end of the first PBR Challenge organized by CGTrader, and we must say that some really amazing artwork was brought to the competition by our community. You can check the winning entries here. We had over 660 entries, so it seems that you indeed are interested in the trend of PBR! If you still haven't experimented with Physically Based Rendering (PBR), this new challenge is just right impulse to start doing that. PBR is becoming a real standard in the gaming industry, so to meet the needs of game developers, those interested in that market will likely have to adjust at some point. This PBR challenge does not have very specific category restrictions, just this time we want to focus on real-life objects objects - furniture, plants, architecture, tools, electronics - just look around your physical environment and get to work. We love the creative 3D artwork you publish on CGTrader, but this time no sci-fi content is allowed. And yes, PBR textures is a must! Our friends at Quixel, Marmoset, 3D-Coat and Dosch Design are joining in this competition, providing some great prizes, and CGTrader is throwing in a $500 in cash for the winners.
  18. Hi there amigo's, I am having an issue with my reflections not showing up when I am previewing smart materials, and even when I paint an object. I am getting the lighting info, but not the reflections. Please see the image attached. Any ideas? Is this a reinstall situation? Thanks again.
  19. Всем привет. Сильно напряг вопрос переноса модели с текстурами в движок Unity. Использую официальный конвертер-ассет 3DCoat to Unity с ассет стора. Есть модель в коате ( первый скрин), ножки стула - почти чистый хром, светлый (2й скрин). Сохраняю в папку Assets проекта Unity. В итоге все металлы стали очень темный - почти черные. Отражения (блики) есть, но при этом все темное. Чистый диффуз цвета предает правильно. Так что подозреваю что проблема в карте default MGO. Когда экспортировал то же через пресет Marmoset Viewer 2, и потом залил это в мармосет - то там отображалось более менее нормально ( Metallness задал металы,Gloss - задал отражения).Сильно расстраивает что через официальный експортер не удалось правильно передать текстуры ( так как просто экспортами все выходило также плохо - темные металлы). Может кто знает как решить эту проблему? Файл приложен.
  20. Hi folks, this is my first post as i am new to 3DCoat. I am some old guy, software developer, game enthusiast. I try to make some models for Unity3D, bought 3DCoat and now i am stuck. Modelling works, Retopo is going to work. I really miss some good reference for 3DCoat, hints are welcome. My actual problem: when applying PBR material to an object, it seems to look all right in the preview, but when on the model, it has very low details and looks blurry. I found no hint to this behaviour, so does anyone have a hint where to look? I try to attach a picture of the issue. What have i done? Create a voxel sphere, switch to paint room, apply PBR in an extra layer.
  21. In this tutorial I show the workflow from creating a hardsurface model in Blender to texturing it with pbr materials with 3D-Coat:
  22. Hi guys. I made a written step-by-step tutorial on PBR texturing in 3D coat. Please feel free to share this to your friends or in social media. http://www.creativewithjaakko.com/2016/09/29/pbr-texturing-in-3d-coat/

    3DC to Modo Workflow help

    I am fairly new to using both 3DC and Modo and frankly I am lost. I have textured my item in 3DCoat and no matter what I do, various methods of exporting, etc I still keep getting a model that looks like this now in Modo when trying to render it out. I am not sure if this is a Modo problem or an exporting in 3DC problem but it has taken up two days of work trying to figure out and I am going crazy... If anyone has some insight on this workflow and where I am going wrong I would appreciate the help more than you can imagine!Thanks for looking.
  24. 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
