Thank you in advance.
I am in the middle of a project and this is slowing me down a lot… I am amazed on how good the UV tools have got since last time I used them, but I am a bit stuck in 3D texture painting.
Is there a way to pick a color so that it takes the actual hex value of the color, I mean, the accurate color, not a slightly different one? Is as if it would be considering the opengl lighting or simply the phong shading, and picking the tint of color you actually see, not the color actually in the texture… I don’t know if this could be useful in some situation, but for painting the typical texture diffuse map, it does seems inconvenient to me… Maybe it exists as an option in preferences, but I was not able to find it, so, if any one knows, I will be more than grateful.
For me it’s perfectly ok to need to go to trigger a preference that is not default. Also, it would be lovely that one could push a key so that whilst pressed would toggle the cursor -or just its functionality- to work as a color picker, so to pick (left click) the color where the cursor is. Like in all 2D packages or 3D painting solutions. I mean, is not good for a practical work flow to go to the tools palete, click on the color quad, then click on the eyedropper tiny icon, then pick the color. And repeat all procedure to pick another color if you got it wrong, or because your work flow is paint, pick color, paint…
Before, it was right mouse button, but imo, if that gives problems, is perfectly ok to set a ctrl + click to pick color, or shift click, or any other key/combo… I’m using a wacom intuos pen, but that is no issue.(works pretty well in Blender)
These two things IMHO slow down quitethe painting act, at least in the 3D window… And the brushes feel/response, and painting over seams are improved to an state that I see them better than in many other softwares that I have handled for this… So, having these possibilities would make it round…
I’m really impressed with 2.69, maybe I did not use heavily any version since 2.4x and 2.5x, but it really is so much better now. Very good for production.
