    Default Blend Shapes Export - Information, Installation and FAQ

    Banner


    Blend Shapes are a key element to animating models in Maya and ZBrush provides a powerful method for creating them. Now, Blend Shapes Export takes this to the next level by allowing you to easily convert sculpted layers in ZBrush into blend shapes for Maya 2008 and above.
    • Allows you to build blendshapes inside ZBrush using 3D Layers.
    • Layers are automatically transferred directly to Maya.
    • Multiple layers and multiple SubTools can be used as desired.
    • Quickly see how your blendshapes perform in Maya.
    • Layer names you assign in ZBrush become blendshape names in Maya.

    This plugin is available with ZBrush 4R6.

    Not sure this would be any use for games. But possibly for the film industry. Seems like this tool is just another button clicking saver. But if you have a file thats already got blends hooked up to it this tool would probably be useless. Good For possibly testing though?

    cool plugin though

    This is really awesome! the only thing you need now is to be able to split the shapes with normalized masking. Then explode those into more layers and then export to maya.
