Joe Alter adds 3D paint tools to LipService for Maya

Projection painting in action with LipService’s intuitive-looking ‘mush’ tool.

Joe Alter has added a new 3D paint mode to his LipService facial sculpting and animation plug-in for Maya.

The painting tools, which form part of LipService’s LBrush toolset, include a range of standard features such as clone, erase, blur and smudge.

There is also a rather cool ‘mush’ tool, which enables users to deform a projection texture to fit the geometry being textured before painting through onto the model.

The toolset supports a tiled texture workflow similar to those in Mudbox or Mari.

LipService itself is still currently in beta, and is available as a free download for non-commercial use.
