A new zscript I started working on yesterday! Still needs some polishing, but I should be able to release it next week.
Nice you got it going for zbrush, I am using almost the same script in 3ds max for UV layout. If you could reuse the same code for TopoGun that would be top notch:-)
First version is available!
This plugin will allow you to send meshes to UVLayout and send them back.
- UVLayout installed. (The plugin will automatically find it)
Extract the ZStartup folder and replace it with the one in your Zbrush root folder.
You'll find the GoUVLayout options under the Zplugin menu.
Hmm, wow, this sounds good. I honestly prefer UVLayout myself to built-in UV editors in most 3D apps, so this should come in handy, imo. Nice work on this. I'll look into it over the weekend, and test things out.
Seems like this could be very handy. Unfortunately it's not working here. When I press the button to send to UVLayout I see a command window pop up (too fast to read the contents) but then nothing happens, UVLayout does not launch.
Running Windows 7 64 bit here, in case that's a factor.
Hi! I don't seem to have that, I have the .uvl, then inside that there's the uvl.File and inside that ShellNew but nothing else inside that.
My license of UVLayout is activated by a USB dongle so that I can use it on multiple machines, perhaps that's a factor?

Worst case scenario, you can create the registry key manually.
Just create the following key:
Make sure to change its default value. Here is how it should look like. (Make sure this path actually exists)Code:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\uvl.File\shell\open\command
Code:"C:\Program Files (x86)\headus UVLayout v2 Professional\claunch-uvlayout.exe" "%1"
Hmmm, thanks. I'm not familiar with changing things in my registry to be honest. I tried but it's still not working. This is how things look in regedit. It does seem as if ZBrush is trying to launch UVlayout but it's not working. The path does seem to be correct as if I type it into windows explorer it launches UVL alright.
I've just updated to the latest version of UVL but no change.

see this regedit path, not .uvl - finde uvl.File
This looks very interesting! Subscribed.
