2.49 Projection Painting Tutorial

290Yet another handy tutorial from Jonathan Williamson, this one is about how to use projection painting, a new feature in 2.49.

Jonathan explains:

With the release of Blender 2.49 comes the ability to stencil images onto your model via projection. This tutorial goes through the process of setting up your model and it's UVs in order to “projection paint” your textures on.

  1. Wow. This IS really cool. I'm not really into texturing (mainly because i would need good photos for that), but this is a really fast method of texturing a complex model, if you have enough views of the reference.. Thanks

    @Omar: You don't need good images to make good textures! Many of the greatest textures are created from scratch! I personally hated texturing before I played around with it a bit...

    Anyhow, this is a really cool feature in blender 2.49. I can see how it could be extremely useful!

    That was an amazing tutorial.
    Following those steps I textured a simple face in around 15 minutes...
    obviously not the best quality around, but amazing nonetheless!

  4. this is so awesome!
    easy to grasp, and fast to apply into ones workflow.
    thank you jonathan for the newest coolest video tutorial
    in my collection!
    now, i just have to crack that human modeling already... :)

  5. I have searched for many hours trying to find good Gimp tutorials on texture painting, with no success.

    Anybody know where to find some good ones?

  6. I think it would be a nice feature if the image being cloned could be ghosted on the model aswell, that way you can better see the areas you wish to paint.

  7. Great tutorial Jonathan Williamson, I had difficulties to understand well that features at 2.49 launch , but with your tutorial I understood all the potential & power of it. Thanks !

  8. This is a must see for all who are still unfamiliar with this brilliant tool! The tutorial is done very well and the projection painting is shown pretty professionally right in front of you. Well done there!
