kwhali posted a topic in General 3DCoatI would post this in the appropriate forum section but I don't seem to have the permission to create a topic there. There was a similar feature request from 2014 on Trello here: https://trello.com/c/VaktmiiU/192-import-support-for-multiple-uv-maps-and-multiple-texture-images This request is for UDIMs(which 3DCoat doesn't seem to officially support and treats as additional UV sets). We have a 1MB FBX asset, when imported It uses around 40GB of RAM to support 20 UDIMs at 4k. We'd like to work with 8k but the way 3D Coat seems to handle this is keep all textures in memory even if no colour data is painted on or loaded in via textures? We already have the 8k textures from an external bake and would like to bring these in to do some post work with 3D Coats tools, the required amount of memory is a bit of an issue. This feature request is about importing multiple textures at once(our UDIMs), if 3D Coat supported UDIM layouts properly it should be able to easily infer the appropriate textures for each UV set(which is named by it's UDIM ID in our case). All that needs to happen is provide a list of textures or a folder containing them, remove the extension from the file and look at the last 4 numbers for the UDIM IDs to match their UV set. I considered trying to implement this via the Angelscript support, but did not see any information on how to perform these actions with the docs I came across? Additionally to handle memory issues, would it be possible for 3D Coat to allow a disk cache/scratchdisk to be set by a user to write/read the individual textures from and to until the user actions a save? This way 3D Coat could perhaps use a format where it only reads in the mipmap data of an appropriate resolution or separate files only keeping textures in memory when they're in the viewport and proxying others based on viewport culling or screen/viewport size, ie 512 or 1024 px maps could be used elsewhere on the model data, and keep memory usage down, only presenting/using actual texture when applying paint or some other conditions? I'm not sure how the software Mari or others might approach it but it'd be great to use 3D Coat for this workflow. We have one asset with 100 UDIMs that just wouldn't be possible to work with in 3D Coat beyond setting very low texture texture resolution and manually adjusting the size and textures loaded in. Is there a way to fund features/priority in any way? I can understand this may not be as useful/valuable to the existing 3D Coat userbase much, it could attract a new community of users that do have these needs.
Pretty simple, just requesting an option to make it so that my 3Dconnexion space navigator won't tilt or spin the view when I toggle the viewport's Orthographic mode. Maybe add one more checkbox to make it also disable 3D mouse roll in orthographic mode. (in effect, this will disable ALL 3D mouse rotation when orthographic view mode is enabled.)
Javis posted a topic in Announcements3DC development: Public boards usage tips and tricks 3D-Coat -as many programs- have 2 development version: One is the stable version, suited to for your daily work Another is the experimental beta version, where you can test bugs fixes, new features and beta builds Unlike other programs that have a closed group of beta testers, all 3DC builds are open to any user. We only ask in return to help us by sharing your experiences. To help this, we have 3 public ways to do it: Here at the Forums, you will find a place to discuss, suggest and exchange experiences about any new build Mantis is used to publish or comment on bug reports and feature requests Trello is a collaboration tool that organizes our roadmap development into boards Voting for Dev Cycle Implementation. Comments are not needed here because every card should be followed with a link to a Mantis report with a longer description of the feature being requested ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please use Mantis to report any bugs and discuss feature requests.
