3DC 4.5: painting through a photo mask?

Recommended Posts

Watching the Liberty 3D video tutorial series on painting through a photo mask to apply the image to a model's surface. Problem is, I cannot find the mask or materials menus that he is using. Here's a screenshot of his interface:

Is this feature no longer supported? Did the names change or this functionality get moved somewhere else since 4.0 when these videos were made? I looked through the documentation and the YouTube channel, and searched, and cannot find any mention.

 

Thanks in advance!

Okay, so it looks like stencils are close, but they don't honor the tiling button and I can't seem to get colors to transfer from the stencil to the surface.

Okay. I puzzled it out, sorry to bug you here. It seems the smart materials stuff is now how to do the through-image painting, you just have to figure out various settings and create a custom material to recreate the old functionality.

 

I get this app is a moving target and evolving too rapidly for the video educational materials I've purchased to keep up. It's worth the effort to puzzle out the changes.

Welcome to Andrew's development style... moving at the speed of light--------------------------------->>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> and sometimes just a little slower.... :moil:

I think this is the longest we have gone without an update to the betas in a while. Jan 18th was the last one.

 

AbnRanger, poor guy can barely stay up making the videos....
