Happy new year everyone :D

I posted these in the 3DC updates thread but i will post them here also, there was some great LiveClay updates.

Some of the comments on your blog posts seem to have quite good suggestions for possible updates also. You have done some really amazing work with LiveClay, the Freeze tool looks really good and should hopefully allow the ZB workflow with the Bracelet sculpting.

Wow! awsome. Nice work Farsthary and the Pilgway team.
So with the noise brush, in the video it can make like a mud cracks surface or other bumpy inward or outwards by selecting an option in noisebasis. Are these like masks? could you load any mask into there? Now that would be very nice!
In any case really looking forward to having a go with these.

As far as i know this would be maths based so the advantages are you can scale to any size and always keep high quality, you can change the random and as it's maths based you save a load of space where you would otherwise need multiple high res alphas.

So it seems to work a bit like masks but it will give better results, just like most of the other LC tools it would probably work with alpha brushes and the normal masking feature also.

From my using and testing LiveClay an area that could use some more optimizing is the smoothing routines for both Tsmooth and the regular surface smooth brushes. Both of these produce tiny pole like bumps in the mesh. These are best seen using a metal shader. I have tested voxel smoothing which leaves a very clean and smooth surface.

Surface Mode
Areas that have been brushed with LC brushes or regular brushes with remove stretching enabled leave as stated tiny bumps when you smooth these areas.
Ridges are very hard to smooth without getting these bumps too.

Farsthary,look at this discussion I started
http://3d-coat.com/f...?showtopic=9204

My english it's not good but I hope you can understand what I'm trying to explain about some of the problems I have with smoothing(my problems I think are really similar to what digman said)
I hope it can be helpful.

Raul is back in Cuba with his family. He can't get online as often, but asked me to give everyone his greetings and to tell you all that he is working on some exciting things.

Raul is back in cuba with his family. A married man.
What are you talking about?
There isn't any cocktail with vodka and rum.
Neither a dance with mixed salsa and tchaikovsky ballet
Neither a warm sunset and snow mix.

"It is not the image you would see nor the song you would hear,
But rather an image you see though you close your eyes and a song you hear though you shut your ears.
It is not the sap within the furrowed bark, nor a wing attached to a claw,
But rather a garden for ever in bloom and a flock of angels for ever in flight.
People of Orphalese, beauty is life when life unveils her holy face.
But you are life and you are the veil.
Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.
But you are eternity and you are the mirror."

The sun is my wife, she caressed me with her warmth.
I knew not winter cold or hardness
Early did she greet me,beauty shining upon my body
I left her side to a land that hides her behind a veil
memories become cruel, seeing her shape but my body felt no heat.
I became a bird, flying back over the long sea
Striding upon above the white clouds. sun beams as arms embraced me.
in a land where there is endless sunshine.

Welcome back to Cuda!
A great tribute to your father you gave, a marvelous painter he is...

I missed Raul's father artwork slide show. Oh my.
Wonderful paintings, most of them. I'm impressed.
I can't say which are my favorites but these fast oil sketches with fishermen and boats are closer to my interests.
You possibly know already that I'm basically a traditional 2d artist too. Professionally I mean.

Quite a poetic bunch here, a welcome change from certain other forums ;)

Is Raul still working on 3d Coat? I miss the wild updates on his blog.

He's back in Cuba right now, and has no access to the web. Though he should be getting another work visa to go back to Ukraine and work on 3DC again, soon I hear. :)

Well the good news is that Raul is going to be in Kiev soon. So I'm sure, or rather hope, he'll do some bug squashing.
