V4.1 BETA (experimental 4.1.17D)

Recommended Posts

Anybody else notice that the SELECT/MOVE tool in the Tweak Room doesn't work (in the last several builds)...at all? Anyone care to test and confirm?

Basically, if you wanted to Translate/Move, Rotate or Scale the model you have in the Paint Room, you simply cannot, because this most fundamental task is busted and obviously has been for a while now. I've gone all the way back to 4.1.11 and no joy

.


Maybe Axial Symmetry broke it?

Thanks unity2k - so Constructor is a Voxel tool even though it works with low poly elements.

 

Would be nice® to keep the results in low poly surfaces as well or introduce a reduction method that creates an optimal poly count...

In one of the previous beta's, tools were being added to the Presets panel auto-magically. Lately this bug is back on my system. Anyone else getting this?

Not even a no........

Patience please. The whole team is neck deep implementing something that effects all builds.

I got another case of preset switch freezing. 30 seconds to wait for switching between tools... it's what...5th time I think it happenedf  for no reason at all.

One second everything is fine, the next it's bugged and there's nothing you can do about it... even trashing the mydoc folders don't do it.

I'm now redownloading the setup file, to see if this will get rid of it.

Back to base.

[Edit] Nope. Nevermind, I'm crossing the street again.

[Edit 2] Seems the file is corrupted everything works ok on a new scene. Unfortunately I can't send said scene file. Well I hope I can get this bug back on a new smaller scene.

I notice these delays if the folder containing the brushes changes. If the tools share the same brush folder, I don't get the delay.

My problem was actually related to a geo-mess. But nice of you to report this the micro delay are indeed related to this. Never thought it would matter but it seems it does.

I notice this too. I don't think it's unreasonable to expect a delay of a few seconds to reload nearly 100+ brush alpha's.

Yeah well I think i'll go "un-organized" there. I don't mind having messy folder as long as the brushes are smooth to use. But then I'm using 15-20 brushes on all my project so...

a little Tapered Sharp brush variation,maybe some of you will find it useful.... Really one of my main brushes those days, lenght is relatively short so you can't run it down the entire spine of a character for example but its much fun when doing wrinkles, hair strands ect...

Nice brush! Thank you for sharing. :)

It might be user error, but for me this still does not work correctly.

 

3DCoat always produces additional, unwanted vertices/ faces on the symmetry plane. What I'm talking about is this:

I get this problem all the time. Ive generally just ended up either welding points at the end of the process. or exporting the retopo mesh and then welding points together in c4d, then bringing it back.

 

quite frustrating.

Do you have virtual mirror mode = on

if yes, you need to work ONLY in the right side of the model -with sym X on-

 

when finish the manual retopo... do:

Retopo menu > Apply Symmetry to current layer

That's not an error.  It's usually caused by placing one vert beyond the symmetry plane.  If you pull it the other way, you'll notice a hole.

is there a tutorial that explains the various mirror modes?

 

its been giving me issues since i started 3d coat. i remember initially i was getting wierd poly's along the middle, not like this, but like extruded down into the mesh. the virtual mirror option fixed that i think.

 

ah well, more experimenting. thanks for the help.

 

edit: would be nice if verts on top of each other auto welded.. wouldnt it?

Just like having verts weld at the center of the symmetry plane (when using the Symmetry modifier), you have to adjust the "Mirror Snapping" at the top of the UI for 3D Coat to even know you want them welded within a given range. Before doing any work along the Symmetry Plane, adjust it to 20-40%. Andrew should change the default value to 25% or so. That way there are fewer issues in this regard.

They do, but only if you're near enough for them to snap.  You can change snap settings found as AbnRanger noted.  Otherwise, to weld them you can simply stack one on top of the other.
