2022-5-25 Sculpt/Texture/Paint Module Meeting

Practical Info

This is a weekly video chat meeting for planning and discussion of development related to the sculpting and painting in Blender. Any contributor (developer, UI/UX designer, writer, …) working on these features in Blender is welcome to join and add proposed items to the agenda.

For users and other interested parties, we ask to read the meeting notes instead so that the meeting can remain focused.


  • Jeroen Bakker (dev)
  • Joe Eagar (dev)
  • Ramil Roosileht (dev)
  • Julien Kaspar (artist)


The channels on blender.chat have been expanded to open up for more general discussions.
The existing channel is renamed to #sculpt-paint-texture and a new official module channel has been created as #sculpt-paint-texture-module.


Release Notes & Demos

  • Daniel, Ramil & Julien finished their demo files & videos
    • The files have been forwarded to Pablo Vazquez
    • Julien will still add descriptions for the blender.org release note page
  • Wiki release notes have been updated and are now complete
  • Julien still needs to hand over the main demo file for the blender.org demo file section

New Tasks

  • :anchor: T98291 Unfinished Revisions
    • “Missing Approval” section can be reviewed again
    • The other patches need a closer look first since they are quite old and might need discussion again
    • A lot of further patches just need to be mentioned in existing tasks or have new ones created for them. That way they stay part of the workboard.
    • D8558 is a precursor of new PBVH drawing patch and can be archived

Previous High prio bugs:

Next To Do’s


  • Fix poles defaults discussion

    • The defaults of the voxel remesher have recently been changed, which unfortunately resulted in “Fix Poles” getting disabled by default
    • Joe can eventually write a faster version of Fix Poles. Then it can be re-enebled
    • For now to drastically improve performance it should stay disabled
  • Sculpt-dev link to #sculpt-paint-texture module needs to be changed to #sculpt-paint-texture

    • Joe will update the branch
  • Joe got an early prototype of the roll brush working

    • It’s implemented as texture mapping mode
    • The current version is available in the sculpt-dev branch
    • Joe will update :anchor: T98070 Improved Rake functionality but work on higher priority tasks for now
    • The roll brush will be further developed later
