Aligning models

You can use it to snap a model that you've already added to a fixed point. Do your models align correctly outside of Open Brush? i.e. do they have the same anchor points?

Was there recently an update of some

Was there recently an update of some kind? All of my experimental brushes seem to be gone, and along with them all the geometry I painted with them

Animating in a sketch

Hey all. Bringing this question from a suggestion I saw on reddit: Is there a way to record a scene as it loads in? The build-up reminds me of painting timelapses, and I'd love to capture my bigger projects. Is it possible?

Origin points in exports

How are people handling exporting instances from Open Brush to Unity? Is there a way in Open Brush to export the transforms of grouped objects? Say I draw an object made up of a few strokes (like the smiley face here) and I group it and duplicate the group a bunch of times in my scene, how can I export a list of transforms so that in Unity I can swap them for prefabs? I'm noticing that when I export a sketch, the JSON metadata file includes raw transforms for imported models, but not for meshes that I draw within Open Brush. I also notice that groups inside FBX and GLB files all have frozen identity transforms, so the data isn't there. Perhaps the data is saved in another format?...

Viewing sketches on the web in AR

What is the best app out there to view open brush creations in AR on a mobile phone? Is there any better than AR loopa or Styly or are those the only two that will load the shaders?

Capturing / exporting video on a Quest

Hi guys, I want to use OpenBrush on a Meta Quest headset for a university project in my final year. For iterative design feedback I'll need to be able to show people (locally) the progress of my project, be it via the headset, exported video / GIF / images, or ICOSA if I can upload WIPs. I'm reading the docs, reddit threads and these Discord channels for information and have a few questions that could fit into a few of the different channels here. If a Thread is needed I'll use a Thread. Any scope of reply is appreciated, feel free to break the questions down, anything helps. ...

Painting on the inside of guides

Question/feature suggestion. Is there a way to "inverse" a set of guides? As it stands I want to use a sphere guide to paint a skybox, but I can only paint on the outside surface of the sphere. I also am unable to scale it past a certain point. (I'd like to scale it past the parallax point as show in this video to directly paint the skybox for a seperate scene.) Being able to paint on the inside of a sphere scaled to the size I would like would be super useful. As currently it appears I can only paint on the outside....
