I am touching up some textures on a high poly mesh from a 3D scanned truck. The truck tire on the left side is missing color information, therefore I would like to clone the color information from the right side tire.
The problem is when I start painting onto the new tire, it doesn't sample the surface of the other side of the truck. Rather, it samples the same side of the truck simply because it's what you see in the viewport.
Is there a way to make the clone brush sample from the other side of a mesh, even when the camera isn't pointing directly at it?
If not, can anyone recommend a good workaround? I thought about doing a screen capture of the colored tire from a straight angle, then using that image to paint onto the other tire, but that seems kind of hacky. I also thought about duplicating the colored tire and boolean-ing it in place of the non-colored tire. I also considered re-baking the uv-map and then taking it into GIMP/photoshop, but this is very arduous since the UV map from the scan is extremely arbitrary, not to mention it's a .OBJ with like 600k triangles.
Thanks in advance for any feedback you guys can give me!
