PBR roughness metal workflow

Recommended Posts

I always wondered, is this a bug or my misunderstanding of 3dc.  

I set texture workflow to roughness/metal and paint 0 roughness, 100 metal brush stroke. It's very shiny.

50% roughness layer opacity. It becomes blurry. It should be opposite right?


0% roughness layer opacity. This should actually be very shiny.



100% roughness and 0% metal layer opacity. It becomes shiny plastic. Again I think this is opposite.

Are you using the brush only or are you adjusting with the Layer?
I'm only adjusting the layer opacity of roughness and metal. 
Gloss metal workflow is logical but roughness metal seems opposite to me.

ahhh sorry, brush only.

you are right, roughness layer value is inverted.

3DC layers take white value as 100, pure black is 0. I dont know if its a bug or it is how 3DC works.

Please contact support@3dcoat.com asking for this request.

Thanks for point it up.
