    Seams? What seams?

    [​IMG]

    Export your model from your chosen 3D package as .obj, import it into Photoshop CS4 extended, paint away your seams.

    Oh man I tried it out for the first time today and it is just incredible.

    This seam isn't totally invisible but its certainly ten times harder to see than anything I could have achieved using 2D paint only.

    Cookies to anyone who can find the seam though. (yes it is visible in that image)

    Looks like there to me, but it's hard to see with the compression artifacts.

    Explain to use the method please. Do you load the object inside Photoshop then paint across the canvas which automatically updates the texture on the model in real-time or what? Sounds pretty snazzy.

    Photoshop actually has 3D model support. So you paint directly on the model which has your image wrapped around it.

    you can paint directly onto the model, but I like to paint on a new layer above the model, then flatten (the act of flattening stamps what you've got and puts it on to the model)

    Then once you've flattened, just rotate the model to a different view, and paint some more. Its pretty cool. Once you're done just hit 3D>export 3D layer and it will save the 2D texture as whatever format you want. :D

    Also, both of you are wrong. no cookies for anyone.

    EDIT: Am livestreaming making another stump as I type, will be painting 3D in photoshop shortly.

    For those who missed it,

    Before and after, about 5 minutes of cloning and the seam is gone.

    Pretty amazing results. Looks really simple and effective.

    And, I'm on the late bus but, was this it?

    Yes that is the seam. Looks like the seam is towards the right since the mesh is slightly crinkled.
