It’s been a while I didn’t play with Blender. This morning I felt like using it so I worked on a mini boss I designed lately. I’ll explain more about it in the next post. Here I just wanted to share a plugin I found this morning. Even if I’m a total newbie with 3D and texturing, this plugin really helps me there.
When texturing a mesh, I work with 2 screens: one showing the overall result in Blender (with different views: front, back…) and one where I do the actual 2D texture in Photoshop.
The problem I had till then was I had to always go to Blender to manually refresh the texture to see my updates, which is quite a pain when you are as bad as I am in the matter!
I finally found a plugin for Blender that reloads automatically the images after a configurable timeout. Get it there.
It allows me to mess around in Photoshop and simply save whenever I want to see the actual result in Blender. Cool stuff!
