3DCoatTextura 2023 Key Features and Improvements
- We added a new tool to the Paint Workspace, called Power Smooth. As the name implies, it is a Super-powerful, valence/density independent, screen-based color smoothing tool. It is handy when the user needs a much stronger smoothing effect applied than the standard smoothing invoked by the SHIFT key.
- The Color Picker improved:
(1) Multi-select when you add images
(2) Hexadecimal color string (#RRGGBB), possibility to edit color in hex form or just enter color name.
Auto UV Mapping
- Each topologically connective object now unwrapped separately in its own, best suitable local space. It leads to more accurate unwrapping of assembled hard-surface objects
- The quality of auto-mapping improved substantially, much fewer islands created, much lower length of seams, better fitting over the texture.
- Render turntables improved essentially - better quality, convenient options set, possibility to render turntables with high resolution even if the screen resolution is lower.
ACES Tone Mapping
- ACES tone mapping introduced, which is a standard Tone Mapping feature in popular game engines. This allows more fidelity between the appearance of the asset in 3DCoat’s viewport and the game engine’s viewport, once exported.
- Possibility to create your own color UI themes (in Preferences > Theme tab) and recall them from Windows > UI color scheme >... The default and gray themes are included there.
- UI tweaked to be less "crowded" and pleasant looking.
- Wheel works only for focused drop lists/sliders, darker color for inactive tabs, larger size for Color Picker sliders, optional one-column mode for tools list, no dialogs flickering when you change values.
- Blender applink essentially updated:
(1) It is now maintained on 3DCoatTextura's side; 3DCoatTextura offers to copy it to the Blender setup.
(2) The direct transfer of 3DCoatTextura to Blender works using the File to Open ... in Blender, it creates nodes for Per Pixel Painting.
- Fixed various problems of the Blender applink
