We’re excited to announce the release of Toolbag 4.05, a free update for all Toolbag 4 users! This release delivers several exciting updates to Toolbag’s 3D texturing and rendering systems.
New texture painting features include Symmetry, Lazy Mouse, and Stencils, bringing increased accuracy and efficiency to your texturing workflow. There’s been a complete overhaul to performance in texture projects as well (up to 10x faster!), and you’ll find additional refinements to adjustment layers and processors to provide a smoother user experience.
Upgrades to the rendering system include new post effect Toning controls, Temperature controls for light objects, an improved Refraction shader, and a new Glint shader for a convincing sparkle in the surfaces of car paint, water, and snow. Light Map baking has made its grand re-introduction to Toolbag 4. Lastly, don’t forget to try out the new USD file support for expanded interoperability throughout your 3D production pipeline.
