I am just starting out with ZBrush and ZScript, so I am sorry if my questions are a bit noobish. I have tried searching around for these answers, but can’t seem to find them.
Can you launch ZBrush with command line arguments, such as making ZBrush run certain plugins/scripts once launched?
Can a program outside of ZBrush tell ZBrush to run different plugins/scripts/save/anything?
The reason I ask these is because I am trying to write a script that does several different steps automatically. However, some of these steps use other plugins, and I have heard that only one plugin can be run at a time (so if you call another plugin, your plugin will stop). Why is this? Does ZBrush have any plans to better support pluggins? Is there a way to work around this at all? Are the UV Master, Dynamesh(something like that), and 3D print exporter that come with ZBrush open source plugins that I can just yoink the code from and run instead?
I would really rather use ZBrush for all of this, instead of needing to jump between ZBrush and Maya, or worse yet, write GUI bound code to get this all automated…
Thanks for any help!!
