There is no “autoretopo” like ZRemesher in any other app for sure, BUT I have to do lot of workarounds to nail down clean edge flows, crisp mesh boundary than a easy straight forward workflow.
I feel ZBrush is 99.99% perfect BUT… you know there is “zBRUSH standard” where the bar is superhigh. I feel zRemesher can be even more smarter especially in retaining crisp hard edges, respecting the edge flows on sharp creases that perfectly/tightly lock on to the fillet/radius - creases rather than blunting the sharp features.
-Also if we can sketch out topology boundaries on 2D UV View that gets translated on to the 3D model that would be good too.
-Dynamically adjusting the isoparm/edgeflow density of the ZRemesh would be awesome.
-Please take look at Houdini’s isoparm culling based on curvature - retains more on fillet/radius region and less on flat plateau.
-Also if we could plant curves automatically below the hood while sketching out using the awesome sharp DAM standard brush that would assist the zRemesher in the edge flow calculation automatically that would be awesome rather than uzing Zcurves to do such work, although ZCurves also has its own uses fro user driven feature lines.
Please give a thought.
Thanks for easing our pain.
