Paint across UVs: Is possible?

edited July 2018 in Hexagon Discussion

I have tried to paint a char (bridged from DAZ Sudio) that "wears" some geografts. To be precise the geografts are the wings and tail from Popobawa in the store.

I tried many times, clicked every option but it seems I can't paint across the UVs to get a seamless, smooth skin texture for both char's back and joints with wings/tail.

I'm doing something wrong or simply it doesn't support such kind of painting?

    I guess it can't be done! cheeky

    Well, thanks to everyone anyway! wink

    can you as an obj import?

    Carrara messes up UV's with geografted figures not obj imports so maybe Hexagon has the same issue?

  • Personally, I use Blacksmith3D for paining over seams. I do not do character textures so did not respond earlier.

    It imports everything fine, but simply it seems to be able to paint only one surface a time. I really love its ability to paint displacement and bumps (See they in real time is neat!) but also I would like to paint my whole figure at once.

    I also have Blacksmith3D... A total waste of money! angry
    I got convinced by the .DUF support and Morph Channels... But it's truly bad! It can't even store your preferences, every time I start Blacksmith3D I have to spend 5 minutes putting back my setup... And then it crashes at first stroke! Also you can modify that sick viewport commands and it keeps changing panes every time you do anything! And it costs 200$+! It helped me some time ago, but now it's garbage...

    This is why I'm looking for a better solution...

  • I use Blender for texture painting. Just export the figure at base resolution with the geografts attached. In Blender add the textures and use the texture paint tool.

    Blender supports only one texture at time... I can't paint on multiple textures like the torso, the wings and the neck at once.
    I tried it (I suggest everyone who want to OPEN Blender to use BlenderSensei's add-ons... That's the way they should have made Blender at the very beginning!) and Genesis gets messed up! crying

    Unless you know a method or a plugin to do that, Polmear! surprise

    you can paint multiple surfaces at once in Carrara

    you need to check the brush and visibility on each map

    and yes create and save separate map for each surface

    it is not as accurate as Zbrush poly paint though which I now use instead but yeah thats dear

    Carrara is great for everything, painting too, but it lacks layers blending. crying
    I use it for stuff that doesn't require too much precision like far background objects or simple props. wink

    I use Blender for almost all the skins of my characters, and I use Blacksmith when texture edge fading is required. Blender could paint on all the character textures at once perfectly.

    How do you do it? If I load my exported Genesis1 char in Blender I can paint only one texture... and that texture is the same for every body part.
