  1. Mapping in C4D is a breeze. I also like it's sub-d modeling tools. Unfortunately, in my current position I am not allowed to use it.
  2. The entire "decal map" thing needs to go away. We should be able to apply any map in the same workspace, and see it real time without the need to render it. FZ also needs to support Photoshop layers.

    SubD mirror / symmetrical modeling

    Sub D modelers have a symmetry tool because it's the fastest way to work in that mode. In fact, every program I have ever used has one except FZ. My guess is it was omitted because of cost.

    Two questions

    I have my "ghost" turned off. It's annoying to be.

    SubD mirror / symmetrical modeling

    FZ does not have a symmetry tool as do other sud-d modelers. A glaring oversight. I have asked for this since sub-d was introduced.
  6. You can edit grouped objects by unlocking the group or right click and select "edit group". You can select a face by using the "autopick" while holding down the command key (on Mac), or by using the "faces option" from the "tool options" pick pallet

    8.6.2 Crash --> SubD and Reshape

    It's been doing that since the addition of sub-d modeling. The toolset is ok, but they still need work to bring them up to snuff.

    Texture mapping

    Us Lefties have been ahead of the game all along.

    Texture mapping

    The "decal map" thing is laughable. I feel like I stepped back in time.

    CRASH again and again.. please help!

    "Components are too buggy to use at this point, and should be abandoned until we get a solid upgrade there." Bravo!

    CRASH again and again.. please help!

    I think my computer would crash if I even mentioned a 1.3 gb file.

    I have warned my co-workers numerous times about using components but they won't listen. I got bit early on and have never used then since. Absolute disaster waiting to happen.

    sub D help

    I am 100% certain your problems are caused by the triangulated geometry. I realize that in a couple of the sub-d tutorials FZ shows using triangles, but I never use them for 2 main reasons: 1. They tend to cause “pinched” geometry (especially on corners and edges). 2. You can’t sub-divide triangles any further, so you essentially paint yourself into a corner. I have attached a little guide that I did for one of my co-workers, to help them understand what causes triangles and how to avoid them. Maybe it will be of help to you.

    sub D help

    Just a quick glance tells me it's all those triangles in your mesh. In general, I try to avoid them in favor of 4 side polygons. I am slammed today but tomorrow I might get time to fiddle with it.

    FZ fails to launch on Mac OS Sierra 10.13.4

    I installed the MacOS 10.13.4 update this morning and so far everything seems to be ok.

    FZ fails to launch on Mac OS Sierra 10.13.4

    I haven't updated yet, and now I am afraid to. I have too much work to risk having a problem.

    "Smooth Modelling Error"

    Yes it is. I did a complete shut down and restart of the computer. For now it's ok. It was also crashing when I attempted to use the "move" tool. This was on an existing model that I had used many times before without issue.

    "Smooth Modelling Error"

    I am STILL getting the error. I downloaded the newest build yesterday

    Cannot Zoom in the Cone of Vision except Top View

    Edit: 3 views not 4. Front, top, and side.

    Cannot Zoom in the Cone of Vision except Top View

    It's working for me in all 4 views with the scrollwheel. I have a Logitech M510, and I haven't updated the driver in quite a while.

    groups vs booleans

    When you say you can't group objects do you mean no actual group is created, or is it that you create a group but the individual objects are still being selected? If it's the latter, then you might simply need to deselect "unlock groups" under the edit menu. I have been using FZ since V7, and the grouping command is one thing I don't ever recall having a problem with.

    8.6 bugs

    Yes, 10027. Excuse my typo. In any case STILL buggy.
