Our software allows you to easily paint in 3D across seams, as shown in the example to the left. The paint tools are similar to the ones in popular 2D paint applications; brushes, selection, smudge, blur, erase, clone and more. Our projection brush is popular because it lets you use a 2D paint application to edit textures, and shows you the results instantly in 3D using your current Blacksmith3D viewport. Plus, we have a texture transfer brush that makes painting textures from photo resources a breeze. The Blacksmith3D sculpting tools are just as impressive as our painting tools.

Blacksmith3D Standard version 6

Full106976_2af8fd05662f977b9fd3bda0eeb17f2c

Designed for professional artists and novices, Blacksmith3D provides artists with easy-to-use tools to achieve precision, realistic and natural effects, and to create high quality art. 3D artists who are using popular modeling, animation and rendering packages find it very simple to integrate Blacksmith3D in their pipeline to enhance the quality of their art in a short period of time. 2D artists, who are looking to experiment with 3D software, find Blacksmith3D very intuitive, as it has a standard 2D paint application look and feel.

Key Features

• High resolution texture painting – (utilizing 64 bit technology) System RAM and CPU power are the only limiting factors. In other words, it does not depend on your 3D video card capabilities.
• Stacked Image Layers – just like your favorite 2D paint application! Create any number of layers, change the blending modes and strengths for ultimate texture compositions.
• Chisel Deformers – sculpt your models on the fly using Blacksmith3D’s powerful new chisel deformers. Just like paint brushes, you can apply swift strokes in the viewport to bulge, smooth, flatten, sharpen and contour details that you never thought were possible. The Contour chisel is especially powerful, as it allows you to simply draw curves on the surface, automatically pulling in the surrounding vertices, creating detail where it was previously not possible.
• Real-time displacement/bump map painting and rendering. Paint directly on the displacement and/or bump maps and see the result in real time. What you see is what you get, since there is no need to bake your maps. Every brush stroke is immediately applied to the maps.
• Auto-UV Mapping – use the Paint Setup Wizard to auto-UV just about any object file with a single click. Ideally used with high resolution textures and with renderers that do not blur or rescale the textures to preserve the texture around the UV seams.
• Presets – Store tools, viewports and brush tiling as presets for rapid reuse during projects.
• Custom Hotkeys – simply right click on most interface elements to bind them to a hotkey on-the-fly.

The 3D Painting is fully loaded with features to give the artist precision, power, and sophisticated drawing and detailing tools. Unlike any other 3D painting or 3D morphing solution, Blacksmith3D offers direct integration with Poser and DazStudio products with the OBJ/CR2 import/export and the PP2 and DUF file import abilities along with it’s MAT and MOR exporting capabilities.
