3D Painting
« on: January 04, 2018, 01:46:00 PM »
Hello guys,

as I created some paints for the game in 2D, I wanted to step up my game and wanted to paint some helmets or so in 3D. Sadly, I have no clue how this should work or if it works at all. My best clue would be to load the model into blender and than transform it into a .obj. Does this work? Has anyone of you experiences in 3D painting for GPB or other games? Please let me know :)

Folk are using 3D-Coat for that these days(so I hear) - I'm just dipping my toe in still but it's an outstanding piece of kit.

Bodypaint, 3D-Coat, Blender, whatever...  An important part that you have to understand is the link between the the model and the texture - the UV Map.  There are dozens of ways to UV a helmet, you'll just have to rummage around and find(or create) the right way for you. :)

Basically you make the model.
...and create at least a mock-up of the skin - what your idea of a helmet skin should look like.
...then unwrap the model - (make the UV map).
...then apply the skin and adjust the UV to suit.

Thank you very much :)

But maybe you can help me better with an example: I want to make a paint for a helmet, like the Shoei X-Spirit III. We have a template with a UV map. But how can I transform the .psd into a .obj to paint it in 3D-Coat (I would use it aswell :D ). I saw an example where one guy made an .svg and loaded it into blender, but then the complete model is not 3D, just the 2D picture is 3D...

I have just no clue :P

You can't, anyway the model is the EDF... But its not possible convert EDF to X format. Just ask at a modder the 3d model in fbx or other format.

Imo this could be done by every mod author, to release the model and a template. Personally, I do not see the problem :)

With a scratch built model it would basically be giving it away for free that anyone could use for whatever they want.

I've done and post on this forum 2 or 3 bikes model that you can use for whatever you want , I made it from scratch , You could use it to 3D paint if you want , but you'll have to unwrap

For your statement about you see any problem to post model , hum , I'm think you're wrong , because as mattyl said it could be use for whatever the downloader want
