[Solved] 3d Coat doesn't save texture on file > save

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

 

I don't get why 3d Coat doesn't save the texture in my project. Here's what I'm doing:

1) import fbx to paint on

2) Texture > Import > Layers Color to import base color and AO layers I have

3) painting, saving .3b file, closing 3d Coat

4) open file again, my AO layer is there, but layer 0 is flat grey color

 

What's going on? I'm pretty sure it wasn't like that on 4.5 Beta (I just updated to 4.5.03, osx)

Layer0 is used for internal calculation

 

must not be used for paint

 

will you please try the same process adding a new layer first ?

Wow, thanks Carlosan, using the different layer works!

But how should I know that Layer 0 can't be used to draw on? Maybe it should be locked or named something like 'DONT PAINT HERE'? :)

We've been asking Andrew to lock this layer 0 for ages, for this very reason. Don't know why he hasn't/won't.

I guess small things like that are always put off in the very end of development! Thanks for clearing this up
