3D-Coat and CINEMA 4D

it is few weeks ago I seen a thread on C4Dportal. There was a "jolly joker" and author used two apps. CINEMA 4D and 3D-Brush (3D-Coat). It was my first contact. I tried this sculpting and texturing application and it is really amazing and cheap tool.

This is my first deeper 3D-Coat test inspirated by Douglas Adams book and my loved animals...

A tribute to Douglas Adams - Last chance to see...

A process: C4D and BP 3D for basic mesh and UV. 3D-Coat sculpting, normal mapping, textures > export back to C4, lightning, materials, GI/AO, render, PSD post production...



original mesh in C4D



Cheers Pavel

Nice sculpt and texture!
What is the difference between 3d-brush and 3d-coat?

Beautiful sculpting, amazing texturing and incredible lighting, this is very impressive. Looks superb. Well Done.

Looks like a very valuable and interesting tool.

Hey Pavel, nice texturing work!

Out of interest, for someone that has Bodypaint and Zbrush, what features does 3d-coat offer that they don't?

Hello Zendorf

it is different - and has really cool idea and price.

ZB/3DCoat, 3D-Coat costs 120 usd in profesional licence.
1: 90% users need scult app for sculting and texturing, not for a basic mesh. 3D-Coat does not have tools for basic mesh, but has really huge system for import/export
2: You can paint (if you want) all aspects in one time, same as BP3D (roughness, color, specular)
3: system works simultly - you paint displacement and normal maps together, in one time, amazing". You don´t have there a system for subdivision levels. System is absolutlly different. You have two mesh subdivision - a carcass for polygons and high poly mesh for normal maps and displacement informations.
4: It has pretty nice system for projection painting, much better than BP 3D :-(
5: amazing layers system (for scultps an textures)
6: amazing and really live PSD exchange system
7: perfect "mesh mirror" system, copy a model part system etc
8: perfect "spline" system for strips etc
9: Cool "magnification" system

and mush more... Really cool. And "bridge" works perfectly

Pavel

Nice job!

I'm just waiting for one of these sculpting apps to be put on the Mac platform. I have Silo 2 which has the ability, but still in fluz as far as usability.

3D Coat looks like a good buy for what I would need. Com on Mac version.....d'ah, snake eys again....
