View Full Version : 3D-Coat Ver 3

12 December 2008, 07:31 PM
Thought you all would like to know that official pricing news just got released for ver 3. The volumetric sculpting is pretty rock solid even at the alpha stage. It currently supports 32 & 64bit, Win & MAC, nVidia CUDA, 3D Mouse Connexion. Among many other things, it will also include direct painting over low-poly model. The current/future feature list is very impressive and will probably leave other competitors in the dust.

The latest alpha version is readily available to the public to check out. Buy yourself a license before the price jumps.

This is an awesome program for 3D object painting & modeling, plus, customer support can't be beat. The developer releases updates almost everyday and really listens/acts on customer requests...MG

voxels looks cool, one thing though, the branches seem to deform a bit bad at the start of the branch. (esp. when looking at the curves video example)

but cool stuff :)

Sorry, but the only person that can answer this 100% is Andrew, the programmer. Andrew is able to quickly stomp bugs thrown his way!

v3 Is looking to be pretty sharp. The voxel sculpting is amazing. :o

I'm really looking forward to the direct to texture low poly painting though, that's the biggest feature for me in v3.

Tried out the V3 demo last week, and it's amazing!
The Cuda version didn't work for me, but wow.
Looking forward to the V3 release.
