- Let me introduce Mookie.…Mookie has been generously donated…to our noble cause, learning Body Paint,…that is, by my good friend, Sievert.…His details and name are down here.…Very generous guy.…Mookie means bloodsucking insect or mosquito.…Deep inside, he's a very gentle guy,…and definitely not a mosquito class.…Well with the formalities out of the way,…let's do some 3D painting.…
In this short video, I will only show…the quick and dirty way of 3D painting…inside Body Paint,…and although it's extremely easy…to set up and start painting,…literally only a few clicks,…it does have a few limitations,…which we will look at in the following videos.…Let's switch to the Body Paint 3D Paint layout.…The only thing I'm going to do…is press on this button here.…It has a paint brush and three stars.…This is the paint setup wizard.…Yes, it is the wizard I promised you earlier.…
Click on it once,…and then just go Next,…Next, Finish, and after the wizardry is done,…press Close.…You will see a slight difference in the viewport,…but don't worry about that.…
