If I already have 3D-Coat Amateur, and I plan on re-topologizing everything in Maya before I sell it, is there any real legal point to upgrading to 3D Coat pro?Just wondering because the upgrade is on sale for like $220 or something right now. If I get it I'll have only paid $290ish in total.
I fucking hate it.They ALWAYS have it on sale when I don't have money for that shit.On top of it, they don't have a normal shop that offers paypalpayment and if you pay per bank transfer like they offer all the taxes absolutely fucking make it expensive again.Only way is to buy it through a software shop here which does NOT do the sale shit and always offers it for the same price or Steam and I think the sale isn't active on Steam either.
You can use PayPal with steam.
What's the deal with buying this kind of software through Steam? Do I always have to keep Steam open? Would it record all the time I spend on it?
>>630249What do you use it for?
>>630490Butch dykes and cowtits.
>>630251they always on sale on cgpeers
>>630249I've given up trying to find a use for 3D Coat now. When I was a noob I was blown away by the retop and UV tools, but then over time found that actually - you can retop and UV in exactly the same way in 3DS Max if you know what you're doing. You just need to do it on a decimated model because the Max viewport can't handle such heavy meshes.And Max doesn't fuck up all the normals on the low poly mesh. But hey, whatever works for you.
>>630533This. I seriously don't understand how people can go to Steam & others when CGPeers and GFXPeers have constant discounts, up to 100% of retail price.
>>630349you can boast to your e-friends how much of a l33t modeller you are and show off your steam achievements(lmao)on a side note steam has regional prices and loads of discounts so in my place substance pack costs normally only 42$ instead of 249$ on their site and right now they have it with summer sale price which brings even further down to 28$
can anyone tell me if steam always has to run when you buy it from there? or do you just get a number per mail and that was it?I'm interested and steam has great deals but there's no way I install that shit on my work PC.
>>630623no, you can run it from shortcut
