I tried Body Paint a while back and found it VERY frustrating to use. I hope they've made improvements to it.

I worked as a texturer for 2 years and then 4 years as a generalist. Bodypaint is the best tool for texturing I've met. In the last release there are many improvements. Zbrush just doesn't compare.
The benefits are:
-fast import of models from different formats
-the ability to texture several, differently mapped models at the same time
-layers are very easy to use, like in photoshop
-the ability to texture specular and bump, viewing it in the viewport

I wouldn 't expect zbrush to compare, but have you tried 3D-Coat (http://www.3d-coat.com/)? I used it for texturing this Starfighter (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=132&t=806444&highlight=starfighter) as well as my avatar (avatar was also sculpted in it)

No, I didn't The starfighter looks good. If it features all you need, then use it. Bodypaint has a steep learning curve because the resources are somehow hard to grasp at the first. The interface needs some getting used to it.

Thanks, yeah i think 3DC has some extra texturing features that I really like as well. But I guess whatever works for you.

Just to let you guys know - we're back on-line. All articles work, and we have some more =)
Sorry for the delay, we had to fix some hardware issues with our hosting company.
