View Full Version : Projection Master Problem

02 February 2006, 01:41 PM
This may be in the manuals, so I apologize for asking(I didn't finish them yet)

When I go into projection Master if my model is not at a perfect orthographic side view, when I pick up the texture it doesn't go to the symetrical side of the mesh. It just paints it as if the texture was shining through the model at whatever angle the camera was at.

Can someone help me out here. I tried Shift + 'p' to reset my pivot, that actually solved my modeling symmetry problem.

Thanks for your help.

It is a little hard to try to answer your question from your details.

Projection Master will plop down whatever you draw at whatever angle you draw it.

You might want to make sure you have double sided turned off in PM.

If you could try to explain your problem with more detail I might be able to help more.

keep on brushin !

Yes I want to have the texture paint to the other side of the mesh. It seemed like it worked at the beginning of this project. So if I paint the left shoulder I want it to automatically paint the right shoulder. It works if I have a perfect side view of the shoulder. but if i put the mesh at at angle and paint it will paint the other side on the rear end of the mesh(picture a dragon model)

Ah okay I see what you mean. Thank you for explaining it better :)

thatís how projection master works. There is no symmetry.

And double sided only works if you were doing it from straight on the left side and you wanted it to go through the mesh to straight on the right side.

If you do it any other way it just goes straight through. Thatís the way it works.

So yeah once again, there is no symmetry inside projection master, sorry.

In ZAApplink (PSD) you can make the mirror!
