Painting in External Editor 2 way?

Recommended Posts

I am using Affinity Photo to edit some textures in the paint room using CTRL+P

Is there a way to get these edits back into 3D Coat and apply the changes to the model? I don't really want to have to save out the images from Affinity and then re-import as this loses the layer stack.

Any ideas?

Hi 

The Photoshop exporter requires the presence of Photoshop to work.

3DC export the painted detail as a Photoshop Document and therefore that PSD can be opened/imported into both Photoshop CC and Affinity Photo.

However without Photoshop, the file save/export from Affinity Photo as a Photoshop Document, can not be open/import as the same PSD exported from PShop with same layer hierarchy. 

It is AP incompatibility with that file format.

//Edit

Thx digman for sharing an useful workaround.

Some apps will work for some task, but may be not for everything (brush edit  as example)

Do not use the save function in Affinity Photo.

Use the export function instead. Set it up to export a PSD file. 

This requires a couple of extra steps and 3DC will be updated correctly.

Do not change the name the of the file or folder that is exported as 3DC will not update.
