it is a matter of… size!
I just recently got into Zscripting some things for myself because I am a lazy/efficient (however ya wanna see it ) artist that rather spend time on my art than manually do something that I repeatedly do while working… so I wrote a script! well, a few.
and… sillily enough didn’t realise the enormous resource and expertise of this forum.
I’ve now run into an issue that I cannot really get my head around. (two actually)
the first one is… I have a startup script to run from the DefaultZScript, and I would potentially like to display an image in there, in the last note that I show… but I’ve not found a way to do this. Is it possible?
the second one is the one that I’ve been wrangling with the most.
before I realised that there was a Zscripting forum and Roland had made a nice Axis script, I had made a turn around script for myself.
I’ve managed to dynamically change the spacing depending on what document I am currently using, however, now I need to figure out a way to properly center the model and to scale it appropriately so that it doesn’t overlap.
I thought I had solved it, by using the turnaround points… until I realised that it was working just because my models were all set up properly now…
As you can notice in the gif above as well, the models all have different center points as well. I would ideally like it to all be on the same line.
The only way I can think of it right now is to somehow get the information of the X/Y position, for each subtool, looping through to find min/max value of them each and try to use that information to set the transformation with…
[TransformSet, scaledToolWidth, scaledToolWidth, scaledToolWidth,]
don’t really want to mess about with merging, or actually scaling the tool itself, if possible.
There’s another issue I want to solve later on that comes with some models facing the other way… but that’s a laaaaater problem xD (I think Zbrush doesn’t inherently save the rotation value as such for the models… so that will be a challenge)
if anyone has a better idea, or tips or tricks, for any of it… I would gratefully appreciate to hear it!
