    Default Liquid: New ZPlugin

    liquidBanner.jpg

    Welcome to Liquid!

    Liquid allows you to use ZBrush's sculpting tools on your texture map or on the unshaded color of your canvas. To enter Liquid , press "L" on your Keyboard or the Liquid button in your ZPlugin's palette. Liquid will drop your model to canvas and allow you to alter your texture. When you are done either press "L" again or Freeze in the Zplugins palette. Liquid will then pick up your model from the canvas and apply your alterations.

    With Liquid you can:
    • Use ZBrush's move tool to push and pull your texture.
    • Use ZBrush's pinch brush to pinch in areas of your texture. Also, you can press Alt while using Pinch to enlarge areas of your texture
    • Use ZBrush's smooth brush to smooth out distortions you made.
    • Use ZBrush's morph brush to undo your distortions.

    • View a wireframe of your distortion by pressing View Distortion.
    • Use ZBrush's dynamic levels of resolution to make global or local modifications.
    • Use Fade to fade the effects as the surface turns away from the viewer.
    • Use DoubleSided to project your modifications to both sides of your model.

    3/3/06: v2 is released. Fixes some issues people experienced with initializing ZBrush and added two new features: the ability to save out your distortion mesh and to load one back in.

    To install, unzip content to your ZStartup/ZPlugs folder. If a ZPlugs folder doesn't exist just create one.


    Press Help in the Liquid interface to learn more. Enjoy and happy Pixoling!!

    Now this is a plugin that is going to be damn useful for using existing textures you've made on new models......in fact thers a whole host of things you could do with it! I was actualy wishing there was soemthing like this a few nights ago, so you must be a mind reader.

    5 Stars for making a plug I'll find really useful! Thanks for spending time to make this.

    well works like a dream and best of all easy to use (trust me, your not going to need a manual for this one!). I used it to take a texture fro my bouncer Wip and fit it to this quick sketch. This is going to be one of my favorite plugins. Only problem I came accross was that it mirrored my texture from front of face to the back of the head, but thats no biggy really.

    DarthWayne -
    By default double sided projections is on. To turn it off just turn off the DoubleSided button by clicking it till it is no longer orange. Glad you like it.


    Thanks guys for the kind words.

    zzagno - What system are you using? Do you have the LiquidData folder directly under your ZStartup/ZPlugs? What is the exact error it gives you, if any? Can you provide a list of the plugins you have installed?
