great acoustics in your new studio – or is it a new microphone? Anyway, your voice sounds great
I was really surprised seeing use you the projection painting. I knew that the clone tool (used with an imported texture) in combination with projection painting could be really powerfull – but those uv´s are always a mess. To me it is really hard to work with them in PS – I almost have no orientation and don´t know what I am doing. Isn´t there a way to clean up the uv´s just a little bit and still use projection painting on them? I think R16 has some minor upgrades on its uv tools which made it easier for wraping uv´s….
Your hint on “apply projection” was very important for me – that was one point I never fully understood with projection painting. Sometimes it worked – sometimes not. Now I know why, I moved the camera before applying the projection.
Thanks and Happy Holidays!
You can absolutely create better UVs and I would always suggest doing so if you know how.
I really just wanted to show that the projection painting method could help people get texturing in the 3D viewport even if they know nothing about UVing.
Have a great holiday!
10/10 – I have looked at body paint for many years and thought that’s a bit deep and time consuming – You have just made a dark art look easy.
It certainly has depths and many many tools but I’m glad my video made it feel more accessible. I’d highly recommend exploring again. It’s a fantastic bit of software.
