    Lightbulb FJTools

    current version 0.2

    Hello fellow ZBrush users!
    I want to introduce you to my Zbrush 4R8 plugin “FJTools”
    This is a collection of scripts that add new, or extend existing features of Zbrush.





    You can find the plugin below or on my gumroad page.
    It would mean a lot to me if you would give it a try and would let me know what you think of it!



    Featurelist:
    Expert Mode (similar to photoshop)
    You can select which dividers/panels you want to include in Expert Mode
    LP adds the panel on the left side
    RP adds the panel on the right side
    BP adds the bottom panel
    FP adds the "Floating Menu", so the top and bottom panels
    Expert Mode hides/unhides the panels selected above. Using a hotkey is advised.

    Select MutliMesh
    Down selects the mesh with the next ID
    Up selects the mesh with the next ID
    Random selects a random mesh

    Maintain your VDM Brushes
    BrushToSubtool converts all stored VDM to subtools
    (does not work with IMM Brushes yet!)
    CleanBrush deletes all stored meshes of the brush
    SubtoolToBrush attaches all subtools back to the brush
    SkipFirst when active, skips the topmost subtool while adding to the Brush
    (in case you have a buffer for naming purpose)



    Installation:
    Simply copy the "FJTools.zsc" in the plugin folder of your Zbrush R8 installation which can be found here:
    ...\ZBrush 4R8\ZStartup\ZPlugs64
    On the next Zbrush start a new "FJTools" submenu can be found in the ZPlugin zbrush palette.


    Known issues of version 0.2:

    -While active the “BP” button prevents the locking up mechanism of the ExpertMode
    -”BrushToSubtool” only works for VDM (Vector Displacement Mesh) Brushes,
    not IMM (Insert Multi Mesh) Brushes yet.

    Hi everybody!
    I just updated my Plugin to Version 1.0 and wanted to share it with you ! You can dowload the plugin via my gumroad page.
    It would mean a lot to me, if you would give it a try and let me know what you think of it!

    Simply copy the "FJTools.zsc" file, along with the "FJToolsData_4R8" folder into the plugins folder of your Zbrush 4R8 installation, which can be found here: ...\ZBrush 4R8\ZStartup\ZPlugs64
    On the next Zbrush start up a new "FJTools" submenu can be found in the ZPlugin palette.


    Features:

    If you prefer watching over reading, head over to Artstation, where all features are showcased
    ExpertMode of the following buttons:

    • LTray Includes the left tray into the expert mode
    • RTray Includes the right tray into the expert mode
    • Float Includes the float menus into the expert mode
    • Expert Mode Hides/Unhides the trays that you defined above

    !Using a hotkey is highly recommanded.

    • Hide/Unhide all Subtools Depending on the visibility state of you current subtool, hides/unhides all subtools (same as shift click on a subtool)

    • Sgl Sets the coloring-mode, so that only the selected Subtool gets colored
