Update infos for version 4.5 BETA7


  • Convert old materials should work correctly
  • Several clone tool problems fixed:
    clone from outside area, correct blending of color and gloss/metal, „through all volumes“ works correctly.
  • correct texture UV editor view
  • Fixed seams problem in ppp – colored pixels near seams in some cases.


  • Import gloss/metal has now channel picking dialog.
  • Thumbnails will refresh more adequately – when layer or it’s blending options are changed.
  • Blending options for layers are oganised better, opetions separated into sections, gloss and metalness has now same options.
  • In lock panorama mode screen refreshes when you rotate the panorama. Important: Panorama management is still under construction!
  • Layers folder supports metalness/gloss
  • robot/preview sphere included in distributive
  • Objectify was super slow. I fixed it in beta6. Extra functionnlaity in objectify – removing small flying noise, unifying small pieces, decomposing to child volumes, sorting by size.
  •  „Draw on plane“ extended on Curves/Text/Snake clay


  • 3D-Coat now imports object space normal maps, if needed (with auto conversion to tangent space). It guarantees normalmaps compatibility.
  • View seams in paint room added – bit.ly/1shKfFR

Hi friends.

Don’t be surprised. I am currently working on my overall internet presentation.
All my future blog posts will be published here.

Additionally I will implement more infos about me too. My work references will move to this place too.

Thank you for your patience.
