An image created with 4D Paint by artist Elise Tak. The developer Kent Barber has just made the Cinema 4D plug-in for projection painting available for free download.
GameLogicDesign – also known as developer Kent Barber, developer of the Plugins 4D series – has made 4D Paint, its real-time Cinema 4D projection painting system, available for free download.
The toolset optimizes painting directly on 3D objects in the Cinema 4D viewport using stamps and stencils and includes a number of useful functions, including texture remapping and SVG import.
A free projection painting system for Cinema 4D with support for OctaneRender
4D Paint is intended to complement the Cinema 4D native painting toolset and allows users to use stamps and stencils to paint directly on 3D models in the Cinema 4D viewport.
It is also possible to project a photographic texture or a vector image onto a model and then paint parts of the image on its surface.
OctaneRender 3.06+ users can view the results directly in the Octane Live Viewer.
The plugin also includes a number of utility functions, including SVG import and texture remapping.
It's not the first time Barber has made 4D Paint available for free after testing a Pay-What-You-Want model in 2018. However, he later returned to traditional product sales based on user feedback.
This time, UDIM Importer and HDRI Texture Connections are not part of the free download and are still available as part of the 4DPlugins Pro bundle for $ 299.
System requirements and availability
4D Paint is free for Cinema 4D R20 + on Windows and MacOS. If you like it, support Kent Barber on Patreon.
