On the Mac, it is necessary to SHOW PACKAGE CONTENTS for the Carrara 7 application file and then browse to:
Then place the .cbr file or files into the above folder.
In Carrara, select the item you wish to paint in the Assemble Room. Then choose the 3D Paint Tool.
Now you should see the tools above the view port and to the right.
On the right, choose the tab labeled 'Tool.' Then choose the texture square. By clicking on it, you should open the scene wizard menu. In this menu, select the name of the brush set in the upper left corner. Then select the specific brush you want to use and 'OK.'
Now you can use the brush you selected on the 3D object. 3DPaint requires that the model already has been UV mapped.
Here are some pointers to keep in mind when using the 3D Paint feature with Figures.
If the figure is a DAZ Figure, such as Victoria 4.2 base, you'll get a message if you attempt to use 3D paint on it.
This message is designed to prevent you from mistakenly editing the default texture. You have the opportunity to save the texture under a different name. This protects the original texture, but still allows you to edit the texture, now with a different name.
Choose 'Save as.' Now you can use 3D Paint on a DAZ 3D figure!
