ZBrush is a very powerful sculpting/painting program. With this ZBrush/Blender applink script you can easily move your objects and textures between these two programs.
What is new?
-The last version of GoB is the v2.65-
It is an addon for Blender with an entry inside ZBrush.
It use the capabilities of GoZ, and you can switch between GoZ apps.
It works with Bmesh, but need to convert this meshes for compatibility with ZBrush.
You can transfer:
- Objects (only polymeshes)
- Diffuse map
- Normal map
- Displacement map
- Extract the 'ZBrush' directory contents at this path:
- on Windows
- on Macintosh
- Extract the 'Blender' directory contents in your Blender addons directory.
- Configure ZBrush.
- Open ZBrush, click on 'Preferences'->'GoZ'->'Path to Blender' to research the blender.exe path.
- (if you don't have the 'Path to Blender' entry in GoZ, redo correctly the step 1).
- Configure Blender.
- Open Blender, click on 'File'->'User Preferences...'->'Add-Ons'->'Import-Export'. Check for the GoB entry, and then click 'Save As Default'.
The addon add one icon (the Brush Pinch icon) in the top info panel at the left of the Blender icon:
- By clicking on the brush icon, you export the selected mesh objects into ZBrush.
- By clicking on the Blender icon, you import the lastest objects exported by GoZ.
- Blender can not have two objects with the same name, but ZBrush can. So if you export several objects from ZBrush, check names or some objects will miss.
- From Blender you need to manually apply modifiers before export objects, in example if you do not apply the mirror modifier, you will have only one side of your object in ZBrush)
- Polygroups inside ZBrush use faces for grouping. Blender use vertex for grouping, so the script use some conversions
- Same for polypainting, in Blender a vertice can have one color per face, but not in ZBrush.
