    Default Pixologic Release: SubTool Master (updated 3/28/08)

    STM-2.jpg

    Today we are releasing SubTool Master, a new ZBrush plugin that gives you greater control over your SubTools.

    SubTool Master allows you to mirror, duplicate, merge, export all your subtools at once, fill all your subtools with color and/or materials and many other things!


    Installation Instructions:



    1. Download SubTool Master to hard drive
    2. Unzip the zip file to your ZBrush3\ZStartup\ZPlugs folder.
    3. Make sure that your unzipping program preserves the folder structure of the plugin otherwise it will not work. (In Winzip this is the 'use folder names' option. In WinRar check 'use relative paths' in the Advanced options.)
    The zip contains:
    1. SubToolMaster.zsc - the plugin file
    2. SubToolMaster_readme.txt - a text file version of these instructions
    3. SubToolMasterData - the plugin data folder which contains:
      1. ZFileUtils.dll - the dll file
      2. UILeft.txt - rename this file if you want the UI on the righthand side of the canvas
      3. File|SubTM-button.psd - the plugin button icon
      4. File|ButnPic.psd - the popup button icon + 18 jpg image files
    Launch (or restart) ZBrush. You should now have a SubTool Master subpalette in the ZPlugin palette, containing the SubTool Master button and the Save ZTool button.



    Documentation:



    Happy ZBrushing,

    The Pixologic Team


    Note: Current version of SubTool Master is 1.2G.

    Thank you , going to try that out right away.
    It's funny , i was just talking about a tool like that today in the questions forum.

    edit : tested it out , everything seems to work fine , a fine toolset expansion. One issue : either i missed it , or you cant. A way to keep those extra options onscreen and available while doing other operations. Like an extra palette.

    Another great plugin!
    It's working great, and Subtool managment is now even easier. Mutli-append and Duplicate functions are awesome.

    Thanks

    Thank you, the tool is great. I know I sound like an ungrateful noob, but is there a way that it can be a palette and kept visible to make changes to other subtools? Thanks, great add-on to an already great program.

    Cool plugin
    Had a weird thing where it would not Reconstruct Subd back after you merge but I then after trying it a few times it suddenly snapped out of it and now works. (weird)

    And I ran the test like 3 times the same way every time but all of a sudden Walla no more problems.

    So if you cant reconstruct sub d try it a few times

    Thanks for the plugin.

    This is really nice, thanks a lot!

    One thing I think would be a great addition though would be to have a "colorize" and "uncolorize" button. It's a pain to go through all the subtools and turn that on/off. I set up a zscript to do it, which is nice, but i have to make a new one for each different model I make since it seems to use the layer names.
