Join Thanassis Pozantzis for an in-depth discussion in this video Patching seams, part of Up and Running with Bodypaint in CINEMA 4D.
- What are the seams?…Well let me show you.…Shift+C to create a cube.…Press enter.…And let's go and make this cube rounded.…Just like that.…Let's display our lines.…And make this 2 so it's nice and simple.…Press C to make it editable.…And of course, select all the UV polygons.…Don't forget we are in the BodyPaint UV Edit layout.…And let's go to the Projection…and make it into a Box.…
And it's good enough.…As you can see,…Cinema 4D has broken up…each and every one of them,…so there's a bit of space between them.…But I think it's good enough to start painting on this.…We can create a crate, a wooden crate.…Let's go to our 3D Paint menu,…Materials, double-click,…let's call this "crate."…Double-click here, and we'll add a…kind of brownish…color.…
And we can add a bump map as well.…So, Bump,…50%, neutral,…and we're good to go.…Then we select the color channel,…and of course we need to grab this…and either drop it on the object here,…or go to the Objects and drop it here.…And we are ready to paint.…Let's get my paintbrush.…Test it out, yes we can paint.…
