Known Issues Some minor issues
  • Not all numpad short cut work (2,4,6,8,9).
  • Work slower with many subsurf or many faces. So you can duplicate the mesh, apply subsurf and paint on the copy.It improve really the speed. And it give also better result with the new UV tools Subsurf-aware unwrapping.
  • It's possible that the image is turn 90°. press "remove BProjection plan" and press again "Add BProjection plan" I don't know why but it's work

Bump map.

HOW USE:

You have to:

  • have a blender version above 2.64
  • active the addon
  • apply mirror modifier(not crash but tow planes appear).
  • apply rotation, scale
  • prepare your mesh(UVunwarp, have a color texture).
  • go in texture mode
  • to use alpha option you have to be in GLSL shading

Shortcut: key press

  • key:
    • R + mouse move for rotation
    • S + mouse move for scale
    • G + mouse move for tanslation
    • U + mouse move for scale the UV's
    • Y + mouse move for move the UV's
    • C for clear all

Intuitive Scale short cut:

  • if link:
  • Shift + mouse left (or rigth) 4 time to scale the plane to the reference.
  • Exemple:
    • point 1: left eye on the mesh
    • point 2: right eye on the mesh
    • point 3: left eye on the plane
    • point 4: right eye on the plane
    • and it scale the plane in the proportion of the mesh
  • if unlink:
  • Shift + mouse left (or rigth) 6 time to scale the plane to the reference.
  • Exemple:
    • point 1: left eye on the mesh
    • point 2: right eye on the mesh
    • point 3: top of the mouth on the mesh
    • point 4: left eye on the plane
    • point 5: right eye on the plane
    • point 6: top of the mouth on the plane
    • and it scale the plane in the proportion of the mesh
