Too sad reading about Auto - Retopo not getting some OpenCL love.

 

Not even a little try??

 

Anyway i trust the team here to come up with solution in the matters that causing us troubles.

AO already has OpenCL acceleration.

Installing 4.5 10 or 11 has voxels no longer work correctly on my system. default voxel spheres don't show. Mannequin shows, but any sculpting makes disappear... Can open surface objects and convert to voxels, but operations make surface disappear again....

 

Rolled back to 4.5.7 and works again...

 

quadro fx 5600 with 341.61 driver. Clean install rolled back to previous 311.35 and still issues......

 

Any input on this?

SO regarding the previous post about the CUDA... It IS related to the CUDA. So 2 questions:

 

1. Did some recent builds go to a new "code" for CUDA that makes it no longer relevant with my older card?

 

 2. I have always loaded the CUDA build. If I launch the CUDA build and go to the geometry menu and uncheck "use cuda", all works again, so.... Is unchecking "Use CUDA" and just running the regular non-cuda build the same? Or maybe I still get some benefit somewhere else with cuda build?

I recommnd updating video drivers, 08 and 09 are using cuda toolkit 6.5 and may fail with older drivers.

 

08 and above

Thanks carlosan,

    I saw that last week and didn't put the 2 together... Looks like the latest driver for my older card doesn't cut the mustard. I'll be stuck without cuda until an upgrade in hardware is in my hands...

 

Thanks for the replies....

The function of the buttons work. The post was regarding the tooltips both reading the same thing. It's a SMALL contribution.....

Oh, yeah. That is a little "oopsie." I wish Andrew would add proper tooltips every time he adds a new tool. Oftentimes, there are none, and that by itself, creates unnecessary inconsistency in the app...not to mention the fact that it leaves the user guessing what it is and does.

3dcoat has some of the best tooltips! Almost like little mini tutorials for the tool at hand....  :)

 

I use them a lot to get familiar... (As a casual user).

I'm usually the one that fixes those, but in cases like that one, it's out of my control. There is no way for me to change it.

4.5.12

- Important addition - [Camera]->Look along normal to focus camera on point using picked normal, assign hotkey and use
- Smart material rotation control acts on UV mapping projection type as well. Very important for laying wood texture.
- scripting file io and execute commands
- Sketchfab compatibility improved - there was problems when UV sets and materials have different names.
- fill patterns restored

I really hope it is stable

An excellent addition, Andrew!

 

P.S. Andrew, can you add an option to limit FPS? Whenever I'm using 3D-Coat, even for relatively low-poly sculptures or retopo job, FPS starts to skyrocket to a maximum possible value. I have witnessed values well over 900 frames per second, which doesn't make any sense to me. GPU load increases to 70-90% without any reason and the video card warms up to high temperatures. I had to resort to using NVIDIA Inspector to limit the frame rate to reasonable values of 50.

Andrew, can you make all colour pickers to pick up colours from outside of 3D-Coat window?

Hell, I can't even pick colours from 3D-Coat itself.

post-12523-0-39539700-1439593593_thumb.j

For example: on the picture above, I'd like to pick up one of the already defined blue colours, without having to memorize their HSV or RGB values and re-entering them.

Maya 2012 had the same problem, but you could hold the dropper icon and hover the cursor over area of interest that was outside of Maya window to pick up the colour. I can't do this workaround here.

hotkey specific for each room would be cool. a really incredible addition to 3d coat would be Pie Menus. Pie menus in a scupting program is a long, long dream of mine. i plan on requesting this soon. Blender has some nice pie menus, i love modo but i think blender has modo beat. 

 

instead of spacebar (the ui is massive for this pop up btw) custom pie menus please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! set our own menus up, assign them to custom hotkeys. insanely fast workflow. so many commands under one key.

I can confirm both with one small exception , on the floating menu windows i get it some times not always.

 

Preset not there i can confirm it as well.

 

And i noticed some typos as well , for example 

 

Windows --> Restore this page Lyout and a couple more that i cant find now unfortunately.

Yeah, pie menus or radial menus would be a great help. Especially if it they were made fully customizable, like in Nvil.

In Nvil you can create as many radial menus as you wish and bind them to hotkeys of your choice. It really makes the workflow more streamlined as you don't have to remember hundreds of hotkeys or click your way through various menus and submenus - just invoke an appropriate radial menu and choose an item.

 

post-12523-0-32134600-1439600463_thumb.p

 

Another feature worth implementing are gestures (known from Maya). Press a hotkey to invoke a radial menu and immediately afterwards, before the menu even comes into view, make a move with your pen in some direction to invoke the tool that is stored at a given position in that menu.
