    Hey I have this 1000x1000m mesh that I created in Blender and I want to paint it using ProBuilder's vertex painter.
    When I try to use the ProBuilderize feature there's a stack overflow.

    I've reduced the number of tris already and I can't get lower than 22.632.
    I tried it on a plain with about 2000 tris and that worked flawlessly.

    Is there a workaround or was this tool not intended for this type of use.

    I'm basically trying to what this guy is doing here but on a much bigger model.

    If there are smarter ways to go about this I'd like to hear them.

    p.s. if anyone knows a good rule of thumb on how detailed you can let terrains be (in tris or polygons) that would be fun to know.

    Regards :)

    You could try splitting the terrain up into chunks, or using PolyBrush from the asset store, it's free. (built by the same people that made ProBuilder). You don't need to "ProBuilderize" an object if you're using PolyBrush.

    Also not sure if you've seen it, but I have a slightly better tutorial than the one you linked, it uses world space UV's and also allows for blending textures via a heightmap (or some channel trickery if you haven't got a heightmap)
