    Default New plugin : Crop Tool - Updated

    CT_thumb.jpg
    grab.jpg

    Crop Tool provides an easy way to crop or resize the canvas without scaling.

    *Click and drag the mouse to define the crop area
    *Reduce or enlarge the canvas
    *Nudge crop area for accurate cropping


    Tip: Cropping a document cannot be undone. In order to be able to undo, save the document first, you can then press the Document:Revert button to undo the crop if you wish.

    This ZBrush plugin builds on the CropBox routine by Svengali,
    the code for which he posted in this thread in June 2005.
    I probably wouldn't have written this without that code, so many thanks Sven.
    For anyone that's interested, my code is posted in the same thread.

    INSTALLATION
    Unzip the zip file to your ZStartup\ZPlugs folder ..\ZBrush2\ZStartUp\ZPlugs).
    You may need to create the ZPlugs folder if you have a new installation of ZBrush.
    Restart ZBrush. You should now have an Crop Tool subpalette in the Document palette, with a Select and Crop button.


    ***Updated May 22 2006***
    I've added a small enhancement which makes this a little more useful. There is now a 'Snap' option which will snap the cursor to the canvas when it is closer than 5 pixels. You can turn the option on and off.


    Full instructions in the zip.

    I hope you fine Crop Tool useful,

    Edit: 23 May 2006 : After a suggestion by the inestimable Boozy Floozie, here is a

    Lightbulb Expanding the ZScript gene pool

    Excellent work Marcus. I especially like the dynamic crop box display. I think your earlier version didn't have the tweaking controls. They ice the cake.

    Another useful script, very well done.

    Sven

    PS. Thanks for posting the subroutine, too. I already have several scripts that will benefit greatly from your enhancement!

    Thanks for the comment guys, much appreciated.

    Frenchy: a nice idea but I think very difficult (if not impossible) to zscript...

    Cheers,
