    Default Finished Plugin/ZScript : Marker Master (updated 9-26-05)

    MMpostpic.jpg


    Marker Master simplifies the use of markers making this powerful ZBrush feature more accessible.


    Easily place 3D objects relative to each other in 3D space.
    Pick up and edit/transform any object after it has been dropped.
    Replace any object on the canvas with another.
    Edit or transform all the objects as a single group.
    Auto-marking for quick assembly of complex groups.


    Marker Master is ideal for those who wish to assemble separate model parts and then generate a composite mesh. For ZBrush renders, it makes repositioning of 3D components in a picture easy.


    Unzip the zip file to your ZStartup\ZPlugs folder. Restart ZBrush and you will find a new button Marker Master in the MarcusTools subpalette of your ZPlugin palette. You can Ctrl+drag the button to where you want and store the setting (Ctrl+Shift+I).

    Full instructions in the zip.

    Many thanks to all the beta testers including aminuts, andreseloy, Bas Mazur, BazC, Buckie, Svengali and wenna.

    Very special thanks to LemonNado for testing and for using his time and talent to produce this tutorial movie:

    Download the Tutorial Movie (9mb size now hosted by Pixologic)


    If there are any problems displaying the movie, such as poor sound quality, then you can download the codec here:

    It is available for OSX, OS9 and Windows.


    I hope you find Marker Master fun and useful.

    Marcus, THANKS A MILLION for that script!

    Next to the SubDStroke script which is the salvation for everyone with a low perf PC (like me) and the Mask2Group script which is heaven for everyone who needs groups in external apps like XSI THIS is about the most usefull script for me!

    THANKS AGAIN for your effort!

    Absolutely ingenious.
    This makes a world of a difference. What I hated about the multi-marker was that I got the impression that when used, I was commiting to not modify my objects until I created a polymesh again. I'm shure you probably could, but now, it makes sense to me.

    What I find astonishing is the fact that you can place objects on the canvas, like you were painting in 2d (in auto mode) and then MAGIC - you can pick up the whole thing, or individual parts... I'm blown away.

    Whooo... I feel like the next Meats Meier (without his wonderful talent).

    very cool plugin....as usual!

    and kudos to lemonnado for his script but....

    i can't seem to download it via the link

    if i click on free download it seems to send me to a premium page and tells me if i want to down load I need to scroll down and do that but when I do it starts all over again.

    am i missing something? I am still asleep so it's possible I am skipping whole paragraphs.

    Thanks guys!!

    Bas, did you download the 'codec' from the techsmith website?

    The downloadlink has a timer, you have to wait about 16 seconds till the download starts......

    If someone has a better place, I'm more than happy do upload it there....

    Sorry for the inconvenience. The download service is for free and you get what you pay for... sighhhhhh

    Lemo


    PS:File size is just below 10MB.
    PPSisable POPUP windows if possible....

    Smile Not yet test with this new demo version

    But just 2 questions
    There is no number x,y,z visible?
    Is possible to put 2 objects different or not at the same x,y,z markers ?
