Paint All

Note: After selecting this option the 3D view may switch to shaded mode and the BP brush might get selected. Select the Paint Brush Standard tool to switch back to an OpenGL view and start painting on the model across all the materials.

New Material

Create a new Material from the selected Polygons on this Material and map them so that they take up the full size of the new texture. All channels and layers will be copied from this Material and added to the new one. All textures will be remapped to preserve any painting that has already been done.

All the UVs for the selection will be remapped between 0 and 1.

New UDIM

Create a new UDIM from the selected Polygons on this Material and map them so that they take up the full size of the new texture. All channels and layers will be copied from this Material and added to the new one. All textures will be remapped to preserve any painting that has already been done.

All the UVs for the selection will be remapped to the location of this new UDIM.

Select Edges

When in Polygon mode it will select all the polygons on the edges of the UV Islands.

When in Edge mode it will select all the edges of the UV Islands.

Flood Fill

Flood fills all the polygons on the current layer of this material with the color specified in the BodyPaint color tab.

Delete

Bleed

Bleeds out the texture on the selected layer on just this single Material.

Bleed Active Layers

Bleeds out all texture on the selected layer for ALL the materials on this object.

Note 1: If you wish to bleed out every layer on every channel on every material, then you can do so by using the “Bleed All” option from the side menu of the Material View.

Note 2: Sometimes it may be necessary to move your mouse in the OpenGL viewport before Cinema 4D will update the textures.

Show Layer Manager

Show the BodyPaint Layer Manager. This allows you easier access to select Mask Layers and execute other BodyPaint commands on layers.
