What's new in Blacksmith3D-Pro 18.104.22.168 Beta:
- This beta version includes a Filmbox (FBX) file format import/export, along with a fairly massive cleanup of our back-end code. Although the code cleanup should not have an impact on how our software operates, it does have the potential to have caused issues or expose others that were hiding.
- The FBX option helps to make Blacksmith3D a more valuable tool for 3D artists using 3DS Max, Maya, Cinema4D, Lightwave, Blender or even gaming software like Unity3D. The new support of the FBX file format will import/export all material channels (color, bump, etc.) and morph targets. It even has the ability to preserve rigging. However, there currently is not a way to preserve the displacement map strength, and we are still working on the different scaling between other software programs.
- For most PoserPro 2014 users, exporting an FBX from Poser for use in Blacksmith3D will probably be better than the previous way of exporting CR2 files. Many will likely see it as the preferred method because it is better at preserving all of the different texture types and users can selectively export only the morph targets needed for changing in the B3D project.

Although Blacksmith3D-Pro does not allow you to create new models, it does enable you to bring extensive modifications to existing ones, by using a wide variety of transformation tools.
Transform, reshape, morph and paint 3D objectsOnce you load the desired model into the application, you can start modifying its shape and colors to fit your new requirements. Blacksmith3D-Pro provides you with a wide range of deformation tools, such as bulge chisel, resurface chisel or unwarp chisel. There is also the “hammer” category, which contains the move, rotate and rescale utilities.
To bring more artistic modification to the objects, you can make use of the paint tools. Among them, you can find the clone, retouch and reshape brushes, which can be used to esthetically modify your model.
Create textures from personal images and subdivide objectsTextures are vital to the final look of your object, since they usually contain the visible colors and the finer details of the model. Blacksmith3D-Pro enables you to create texture tiles from your pictures and apply them on the object at hand to enhance their visual appearance.
The subdivide tool is a bit more advanced and requires more experience to handle properly, especially since it is a powerful feature than can radically and permanently change the shape of your object. The application allows you to set the maximum number of polygons that can be used for the subdivision and whether to enable smooth vertices or not, but it also warns you about the dangers of using it without performing a backup first.
Closing argumentsBlacksmith3D-Pro is a powerful utility with a comprehensive range of transformation tools. Although it is primarily aimed at experienced 3D artists, it can be successfully used by beginners as well, thanks to the intuitive interface and extensive documentation available.
