    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!
  4. I stumbled upon this article and thought I should share it here as it maybe of interest to some of you, especially those new to texturing.... Elliminate Texture Confusion: Bump, Normal and Displacement Maps Cheers Ken

    Seperating paint objects question

    Hello, I'm relatively new to 3d coat but my youtube research hadn't found a solution. In my workflow, I'll generally create and sometimes uv a mesh in maya and bring it into a program like 3d coat or substance painter for texturing. The 3d coat habit I've picked up has me separate different components from the mesh during the modeling process so I can use the 3d coat fill tool to just paint that component instead of the whole object. My question is, can I take that another step further and get 3d coat to see those separate components as different paint objects so I can hide them if I need to paint behind them? Thank you.
  6. 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?

    Export 3DB as OBJ with textures

    Not sure if this is the proper place for this post as I'm not a 3DC pro nor intermediate and I'm not totally a 3DC noob. I've textured a model in 3DC's native format in the paint room. It has no UV mapping. I did not convert it to an OBJ and import it into the paint room. I am using 3DC's native file format with the intent of doing a 3DC render then import into Photoshop or ArtRage to paint over. I textured in the paint room using pbr shaders and also used 3DC's bridge to the external editor (in my case Photoshop CC 2017). After I finished texturing I decided I would export to an OBJ to use in Daz Studio or Vue Complete. However when I re-import the OBJ into 3DC there are no textures (pbr shaders or Photoshop). In the folder where I exported the model is only the OBJ and associated MTL file. Is there any way of texturing a native 3DC model in the paint room and exporting to OBJ with texturing applied? I thinking it's not possible but just curious if if can be done. Cheers & many thanks... Ken PS: Just getting back into 3DCoat as I spend most of the summer with my Nikon DSLRs shooting well over 6,000 raw photos or landscapes, classic cars, hot rods and scenes. Most of my time has been in Lightroom CC 2017 & Photoshop CC 2017. So now a little rusty in 3DCoat, Silo3D & Moi3D.

    Texturing a pencil

    Hi everyone, I've been using 3DCoat to create UVs for objects built in C4D, and it's a relatively simple process. What I want to do now, however, is texture a pencil. I'm still very unclear about how this process works. If I understand correctly: I should create a base texture (the yellow paint) and fill an entire layer. Then I should make a new layer, and paint in a wood texture near the tip. Then I should make a new layer, and paint in the lead tip. I'm not sure how to do the text. This all takes place in the Paint room, correct? If anyone feels like walking me through how this actually works, or maybe a tutorial that really walks through this step by step (I've watched a ton of tutorials and still really don't understand), that would REALLY help me out! OBJ and reference are attached. Thank you! Justin Pencil.obj
  11. Hi everyone, Juste a simple question. Do you know a web site or a link where i can get more smart material for 3d coat? Something like a pack with several smart material, i don't know if that existe bdw. I need to make a middle-age scene in unity and a scisfi scene in unrial engine and i look for stone/wood en metalic texture. If you know something, please tell me becouse i just find noting on the web. Sorry for my sentences, i don't speak very well english Thanks Skylynne47
  12. 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
  13. me = just loaded up 3dcoat to finish texturing this and I'm saw that this has happened! I = can press *6* (lowpoly) to make it go but when I'm = goes into render it it just shows this silliness again! can anyone helps me please? I'm = don't wanna restart him he was a lot of work :/

    Where is the gradient node ?

    I can't seem to find the gradient node?, Where you can position how you want the gradient fill to be positioned. If any body knows the answer please tell me!, Please and thank you!!!
  16. Hi, guys. I just started a series in order to introduce 3D-Coat to the brazilian audience. The tutorial is in portuguese and it's really basic this time (its just a introduction to some basic painting workflow). Hope you like it!
  17. The problem i have is the following : -I unwrapped my UVs fine -I then baked my normals (with the default shader & name correspondance for baking unchecked as it seemed to cause problem) -Normals are fine in the paint room I tried exporting the object from the retopo room (Export Retopo Object) & from the paint room (Export Object & Textures), and in those 2 cases, i get a weird UVW mapping in C4D : Also, in the Retopo room, i can't move retopo meshes in other UV Sets. I tried with my mesh selected or not in the Retopo room, with the initial object layer selected in the Voxtree or not... Anybody has ideas ?
  18. 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.

    2D Normals in 3D Coat

    Hi folks, Is it possible to do a similar workflow in coat like Ndo's normal map generation? I've been playing about with the stroke options and the depth setting but I can't seem to come up with a good combination of tools. Cheers your time and help Greg
  20. Hi everybody, Could anybody help me finding a good workflow to texture my papermodels in 3DC? I keep it as short as possible. Here is what I do: - Make illustration in Illustrator - export as jpg / 72 DPI but bigger size (4000 x 4000 pixel) - Import my lowpoly obj. model and the jpg into 3DC. (I only have 2048 version). - I UV map and then paint. Awesome !!!! - Export obj with texture as jpg Import into pepakura. The quality is poor. Do I have to work with 300 dpi from the beginning? Is jpg a bad choice? I cannot load the exported tiffs into Pepakura. My UV maps are not symmetric. I don't know how to do that yet. Is that the reason why some details show up distorted in Pepakura? Like nostrils or a mouth which looked well balanced in 3DC. I keep experimenting but it would be phantastic if somebody could share his/her knowledge with me. Cheers

    [Solved] Exporting single maps

    Well, I've finished texturing my roboto (see this earlier thread) and I'm pleased with 3DC's workflow for texturing. However I have a question. My model was developed in a modular fashion, arms, head, legs, chest, etc were all textured separately as separate objects and then assembled in 3DC's paint room. When I export the finished robot as a single obj, I get multiple color maps, normal maps, displacement maps for each object (arms, legs, head, chest). I would like to have a single color map, a single normal map, a single displacement map, curvature map, etc. is this possible in 3DC? and if so, how? Cheers & many thanks... Ken
  22. 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

    Some requests

    I have some requests. Would like to know what do you think about them. Thanks in advance. 1. Procedural noises, specially for texturing Right now, there is no (complex) noise creator inside 3d-Coat, and only on sculpt room. That would be great for sculpting and texturing, but specially texturing. Why? Because, right now, Smart Materials are totally dependent of user textures. So, if you don't have an extensive library of noises and grunge maps, you can't create anything great with smart materials at all. 2. Non destructive smart materials Smart Materials are great, but would be greater if we have a way to make changes on the material without the need to re-apply them on the layers and objects, or even without have several intances of the same smart material while creating them and testing out. 3. Quick UV Editor toggle visibily button Having the texture UV editor window fixed may take away precious screen space while have to go trough menus and dock it again can be somewhat annoying. So would be great to have a button to display some viewports on Paint Room: one with the models only, one with the UV editor, one with both side by side. Exactly like Substance Painter actually. 4. Layer maks like Photoshop I heard that this feature is coming, but would be great to know more about it in order to give suggestions. 5. A real smoothing option for painting I'm painting right now some 8k textures. There is no way for blending colors in any way while painting. The smoothing (shift) does nothing at all, unfortunatelly. 6. Sculpt layers This is a non-brainer. Cinema 4D, Modo, and many other software uses. I may be wrong, but it seems that only 3D-Coat doesn't have a feature like this.
  25. Hello all, I have been using 3DCoat for a few years now and my main use for it is diffuse texture painting. The program is great at it but I do have a long standing issue with the way the eyedropper/Sampling tool works. Like many artists involved in texture painting I come from a Photoshop background therefore this will be my main point of reference. - My first question is related to the mapping of the tool. I can of course map it to any usual keyboard letter key (I personally set it to "i") but it would be great to also be able to access it by holding down Alt while painting - if only because of muscle memory coming from PS. Now of course I am aware that the Alt key is already used by the navigation system when working with Maya-style navigation but surely enough these two things are not mutually exclusive. Maybe there is a way to assign it to the Alt key by manually editing a setting file ? If so please let me know. - Second question : The clever behavior of "hold down a key to temporarily activate tool, or tap the key to switch to it fully" can get quite irritating when dealing with the Sampler tool at high speeds while painting. If I hold down my assigned key, tap down with my stylus to sample, then release both in a very slow and deliberate manner, I do get the color that I want. But if I attempt to colorpick at my usual speedy rate I then always end up with the wrong color samples because it is quite easy to accidentally fully switch to the tool as opposed to temporarily activating it ... meaning that when this happens my next intended paint brushstroke ends up being yet another Sampling pick, forcing me to color pick *again* to go back to my previous selection. Very frustrating. This is getting to a point where it is seriously slowing me down and negatively affects my workflow, definitely kicking me out of the zone ... every 10 seconds or so. How do you guys deal with that ? In general, are there any known workarounds to make hotkey-driven color Sampling more reliable ? Thank you for your help !
