    I am absolutely stunned by how awesome the new v2.0 is. I really enjoyed the original Contours and the earlier 1.0 track of RetopoFlow, but this has come further than I even hoped it could, and now feels like a completely native Blender application. The tools are woven together extremely professionally, and are intuitive and responsive, with a surprisingly solid performance, even still in beta. I would recommend this to anyone that does even a bit of retopology -- it takes what is easily the most tedious task in 3D modeling and makes it far easier, and honestly even pretty fun. Truly amazing work, you guys.

      That's so great to hear Gregory! Version 2.0 is going to be a game changer we think.

    This works great!

    Great plug-in! Waiting for the arrival of 2.0, hope will not be too long.

      Thanks for the rating! We hope 2.0 won't be much longer either :)

    The usefulness of this tool is fantastic. For starters, it's a lot more robust than the previous version, and when it does crash, you don't lose anything and can get right back into the work in seconds.

    The Relax and Tweak tools are excellent for polishing geometry and can make even hastily-placed quads into professional looking work. The Patches tool is by far my favorite.

    All of the tools are lovely and the functionality is great. Thank you for making this tool better!

      Thanks for the review Allen and I'm sorry to hear you've had so many stability issues. Version 1.x is definitely lacking in that department, which has been our number one priority with version 2.

      Beta for 2.0 is almost here (several months late), so I'll be keen to see what how your experiences improve.

    This is cool but I only bought because I thought it had the edge patches feature : ( Will this ever be a thing? Realizing this was in testing but its been more than a year now. Really curious and excited. Thank you

    • Jonathan Williamson over 3 years ago

      Edge Patches was never finished as it proved to be too convoluted to work in a streamlined manner.

      We have basic edge patching functionality in v2 that we're working on, though. It's' quite basic initially but we'll continue to improve it as we go along.

    I'm still learning 3D, so this is my first retopo tool. The install, documentation, and videos are nice and simple, which made it easy for me to just start. I really appreciate that there's only a few elegant tools, many more would feel too daunting for a beginner like me (and I'd bet these few tools are deeper than I realize). I'm glad I picked this tool from the others that I was considering.

      Thanks for the review Deucer!

  • Bryan Stone over 3 years ago

    Would be better but the latest version has knocked out my install, and I have for help with no concrete resolution to why its not working. Will give it another review if a fix or 2.0 corrects the issue.

    • Jonathan Williamson over 3 years ago

      Hey Bryan, I don't believe we ever got a support request from you on the install issue?

      Typically installation problems are due to conflicting files left over from the install. It's always a good practice to restart Blender after updating an add-on, otherwise it'll commonly try and run both versions at the same time and fail.

      Please send me a support request via your inbox, and I'll be happy to help you troubleshoot further.

    Installed the wrong version, seems to be working fine now!

    • Jonathan Williamson over 3 years ago

      Good to hear Amber! We'll remove the previous review so as to be more accurate.

    Really smooth workflow. Innovative design with the Bezier curve based polystrips. Reliable snapping to the surface. Looking forward to the 2.0 update. Looks amazing!

    • Jonathan Williamson over 3 years ago

      Thanks for the great rating! 2.0 is being actively worked on, so stay tuned!
