3D Coat DOES intergations with many apps

3D Coat is by far the most useful tool in my arsenal (I have Z-Brush and Substance Painter too) - the deeper you get into 3DC, the more it 'makes sense'.  It even has a hidden gem of a "cloth simulator" for modeling clothes... and, most importantly two "auto retopo" tools (3DCoat and Instant Mesh).  As for Substance Painter... I abandoned it the moment I discovered, much to my horror, that you can't paint across UVs (well you couldn't last time I tried).

I'm about to take advantage of this December sale and get CC3 for developing my humanoid characters for Unity, and I had a quick question:

I was watching videos and reading about the ZBrush integration for making custom characters, clothes, etc. Can I use 3DCoat instead, or is the integration somehow specific to just work with ZBrush? I already own 3DCoat, and ZBrush is pretty pricey for me to buy in addition to all of this. Has anyone done any work with 3DCoat and CC3?

There is no direct integration of 3DCoat in CC3, it does not have a function similar to GoZ. There are several users doing work in 3DCoat for use in CC3, but I think that they are mostly creating clothing items. It's great for painting on exported .obj file for adjusting materials, but this can also be done in Substance Painter.
