Ironhead76: it's an install issue, you forgot to copy some files or didn't downloaded the good version.
GoZ for C4d R10.5
Update; GoZ works great with C4D R10.5 ! [even though the documentation states compatibility with R11+]

1st problem; the Macintosh Install instructions are incorrect in the placement of the Pixologic folder. There is no Public folder in the Shared folder. So manually creating one, to match the instructions, will result in a plugin failure error.
On a Mac, the Public folder always resides in each users Home folder, not the Shared folder. Ignoring that part of the instructions and placing the Pixologic folder directly in the Shared folder, results in a happy plugin.
2nd problem; The instructions direct to overwrite two files in the ExportTamplates folder. But there is no "ExportTamplates" folder. There is an ExportTemplates folder. If you overwrite the two files in this existing folder, the plugin will fail. So, you must overwrite the two files in the existing "ExportTemplates" folder, then duplicate this folder and rename the duplicate, "ExportTamplates". Then the plugin will work. [not sure what a tamplate is but I'm no programmer] The plugin is made to work with the miss-spelled folder name.
Aside from these two ''Gotchas'' in the instructions, everything works as advertised.

but I realize that it may make sense to simply add those posts to this thread. If so, please kill that thread an move the posts.
I'm using ZB4 and Max 2012 on Win 7 Pro 64. After installing GoZ I get a runtime error whenever Max starts, and no object transfer seems to happen between the two. Anyone else see this?
What about Softimage
Hello, im switched from mudbox to Zbrush but now i can see that Pixologic has forgotten about XSI SI, please make a GoZ for SI, SI is taking the control again...
Yup, another "what about us?" post here. Hopefully you are working on an update 2 with Softimage finally included to the list.
+1 for SI version
IM amazed by pixo to leave out the brute force most powerful 3d app out there .Some of the functionality is already part of SI for displacement set up.
I've got all fingers and toes crossed that it's in r2
installing GoZ for use with Photoshop
The instuctions do not descibe how to install this for Photoshop and I can't figure it out I'm afraid. Goz in Zbrush doesn't have a listing for updating Photoshop. Do I need to just copy all the files over somewhere? Where? I have Windows 7 64bit and CS5 Extended.
There's a installation instruction included into the download. Follow the steps and GOZ for Photoshop will be enabled
help with goz for photoshop
The only instructions I found for Photoshop was about copying a plugin into photoshop which I did. There is no reference to Photoshop inside Zbrush. When I press the Goz button it just sends the model to Sculptrix (the only other sofware on the list that I have). There are no options for sending it to Photoshop. I must be missing something in the installation. I can save the model as an obj and then open that in Photoshop, but I thought I was supposed to be able to use Goz to get it there. When I then tried to send the model to Zbrush using the Photoshop plugin under the automated menu it just gave me an error message.
Chakib, I ran into this problem with Max 2012 and fixed it but can't find the exact details of the fix. Here's approximately what I remember it to be.
1. Go to you C > User > Public Pixologic > GoZApps > Max location.
2. I believe it's the Application files ("GoZBrushFromMax, GoZBrushToMax & GoZInitMax). You have to change the permissions manually.
3. Right Click > Properties - Security - Advanced - Owner
4. Make sure your log in is the Owner on those files. If not click the Edit button and make your log in the owner.
Again, this is all from memory and it's something like that but not 100% sure. It definitely fixed that issue though. Right clicking and saying "Run as Administrator" was not sufficient.

Did you check/change the ones in the GoZBrush folder in that same area as well? I think I had changed all 6 of those files (max and ZBrush folders).
Also I'm comparing my files with a newly downladed set of the files. There's this Security section that has been unblocked on my working files. Right Click > Properties - General Tab - "Security: This file camge from another computer...." Click Unblock and Apply, OK.
And of course close both of those programs out before trying to see if it works. It took me a ton of digging to find that solution and I'm surprised I didn't save it somewhere. Again, if I find the exact info that I previously had I will post it.
