Enhancing viewport canvas to be something like maxon bodypaint, (with faster response when using bigger textures, with projection things from part of image to a object, etc..)

Could I add to also implement the ability to paint HDR values as well? This would make possible to also paint lights directly on the scene!

Add on top of that:


  • Ability to view all materials, maps, channels at once.
  • Arbitrary texture folders
  • Not messing up bitmap gamma
  • Not painting on backsides
