    • SCUD. Everyone's favorite Disposable Assassin.

    • If share same topology it will. Its a trial and error to know how tools works.
    • When I have issues with Cavity Painting, it is usually a matter of having to bake a new Curvature and/or Ambient Occlusion map. Give that a try and see if it helps.
    • It's my understanding that the "Rent to Own" option is for a new license (no more Pro or Amateur versions), not for upgrades. We should expect the upgrade from V3 or V4 to 2021 will be close to the upgrade cost between major versions in the past (ie., V3, V4). The annual upgrade price (ie. 2021 to 2022) will probably be roughly half that. Pilgway is a very fair company. That much one can count on.
    • Awesome news!  If it's not too much trouble, will extrude, inset and bridge be doable? Thanks!  Looking forward to the new release!
    • Probably the same price. Why make it lower? If the price of the upgrade is 100usd, then its just divisible by 12 months for the rent to own. Some people may want to pay upfront to support Andrew immediately. Some might want to pay the monthly dues until they reach 12 months payable. Its good for those people who A. Don't have the upfront cash but wants to own a legit license B. Don't intend to use wip 3dc 2021 right away.
    • Thank you, we thought about it.
      And we will necessarily make a new tool surface like a patch.
    • Hi , Thanks for the suggestions but still not working i`m afraid. Heres a screengrab from what i did and i cleared the read only flag for both directories (program and data).
      All that happens is 3d coat runs and all my data is cleared back to default.
    • Yes, it will work and has been written in bold when announced
    • Hi No one answered this when I asked before, but since there's 57mins left on the sale, do existing 4.9.67 pro users get 2021 for free?  If not which is the right upgrade to do?   thanks
    • Normally I have mulltiple meshes (paint objects) that I can hide in order to properly paint everything separately.  This time I have one mesh - and it is an animal with a snout.  So I want to paint the inside of its mouth.  It's modelled in a neutral mouth closed position with a little gap between top & bottom snout.  So I hide the top half of the snout exposing the bottom jaw and bottom inside of the mouth expecting to paint the tongue etc in there. So that doesn't work and the color doesn't seem to show up - depth and gloss show up - but the depth acts weird like it's taking the top of the snout's skin and doing that pattern inside the mouth.  Where's that skin pattern coming from?  I have another layer beneath the one I'm painting on - but I expected the depth to be smoothed when I stroke because I'm using a flat circle brush. I then notice color does work but ever so slightly.  The Color is ON and the Opacity is set to 100.  Then I notice that as I paint close the edge of the inside mouth the red color becomes brighter. It's almost as if the hidden top half of the snout was casting a dark shadow on the bottom inside of the mouth??  Is that right?  I assume if I hide part of the top that it will expose the cavity of the mouth so i can paint inside it properly with proper lighting so I can see what I'm painting? What's going on and how can I fix it?
