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?

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

Just downloaded a demo of 3D-Coat, really exited to try it out, thanks for the tip!

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....
