    Default Plugin: PowerOf2

    PowerOf2_Logo.jpg

    As you probably already know, the recommended size for working with textures in ZBrush (and most other 3D applications) is a power of two. For example: 512x512, 1024x1024 or 2048x2048. This will give the best results when calculating AUVTiles or GUVTiles UV mapping, as well as when texturing the model with Projection Master.

    PowerOf2 is a very simple plugin that places six new buttons into the Texture palette. Clicking any of these buttons will immediately create a new texture of that size, ready to go.

    To install this plugin, simply download the PowerOf2.zip file by clicking the link below, then extract it into your ZStartup\Zplugs folder. The new buttons will then automatically be available every time you launch ZBrush.

    (If your ZStartup folder does not already have a Zplugs folder within it, create one. Do not place the plugin into your ZData folder.)


    Enjoy!

    Thanks Aurick,

    This'll be way cool if I can drag those buttons out to my shelf for quick clicks....definitely beats loading old textures in the size I want and clicking new...will be much quicker to go back and forth!

    Yes, because it's a plugin the buttons are there when ZBrush launches. That means that they can be added to the Shelf if you'd like.

    PS:Now we just need the same for the document size . That would be decadent.... And... speaking of decadent.... could it read the 6 value pairs in from a file so any preset could be stored? .
