Maxon BodyPaint 3D Overview

Maxon BodyPaint 3D R19 offers a full 3D painting workflow for texture artists to create detailed textures for film, games, and other applications. BodyPaint 3D lets you create rich, highly accurate textures by allowing smooth painting of textures up to 64K and 32-bit.

Support for .PSD files allows you to paint textures in both BodyPaint and Adobe Photoshop. Specific views can be exported to Photoshop and reprojected back onto the 3D model in BodyPaint 3D. You can even load your favorite Photoshop brushes into BodyPaint. BodyPaint also connects well with 3ds Max, Maya, Softimage, and Lightwave. Other applications can exchange files with BodyPaint 3D using one of the numerous available file formats (e.g. OBJ, FBX, or COLLADA).

BodyPaint also provides an advanced interface that lets you control how pressure, tilt, direction, rotation and barrel roll affect any brush attribute.

The application is compatible with Mac and Windows systems.

This upgrade is valid for existing owners of BodyPaint 3D R17.

New Features in BodyPaint 3D R19


BodyPaint 3D now uses OpenGL, so you'll immediately see a fantastic preview when painting color, reflectance, alpha, bump or normals, and even displacement. When working in a physically based shading workflow, you can now paint on every reflectance channel with a full preview that utilizes R19's Screen Space Reflections. Projection painting is fully multi-threaded and for faster translation of brush strokes onto your model.

UV Editing Improvements

Efforts to improve C4D's UV Editing toolset are underway, and you can enjoy the first fruits of this work in Release 19. Create selections more efficiently with options to convert point and polygon selections to the related UV points and polygons. You can now grow and shrink UV point selections, and Coordinate Manager support makes it easy to move and align selected UV elements.

UV Coordinate Manager

Dial in UV Coordinates with numeric precision.

Converting Selections

Use Loop, Ring, and other Selection Tools to convert easily to related UVs.

Polygon Islands

Select contiguous UV islands with a double-click.
