How do I get rid of a mask I painted during AUTOPO?

Recommended Posts

I was experimenting with AUTOPO on a model, and now I want to start manual retopo. Problem is, even after I deleted the old mesh layer, I can't get rid of the higher density areas I painted during the experiments and 3DC won't seem to let me draw stroke meshes in those masked areas. Do I need to go back and search for a version of the model from before the AUTOPO tests or is there a way to regain the original, unmasked model?

 

Here is an example of what I see when I load the model and delete the retopo mesh layer. I can't seem to be able to get rid of these painted areas. I tried going into the paint room and painting with the erase tool, no effect.

Thanks in advance!

Okay, maybe it was just a glitch in 3DC. I just closed and re-opened the app, re-loaded the model, and then started AUTOPO again on it. At the density mask stage instead of adding masks I bulk erased the existing one and re-saved and now it's gone.

Hi. It's not a glitch, but a selection. You can remove it with Freeze->Unfreeze All. :)

Ah, okay. Thanks! I tried searching on topics like "freeze" but I just wasn't getting the picture. I can be dense sometimes.  :unsure:

And If you are in Voxel mode when creating your density mask for autopo, the short cut key Ctrl + D removes the density mask...
