ive only modeled in zbrush until today when i decided that i wanted to try to paint on one of my models. the only problem is that the result is getting realy strange. Like this: (

I cant paint in some areas and were i can paint it looks rather strange.i dont know if it matters but i imported the original model from 3dsmax. would be realy nice with some help :)

It looks like your UV coordinates got messed up when exporting from 3DS Max. The following thread contains import and export settings for a Max > Zbrush > Max ( workflow.

Alternatively you can apply a UV mapping in ZBrush.

ok thanks for your help but i got two questions:

1, i can find the "export" and "import" meny, but where is the "importexport" meny wich is in the picture on link you gave me.

2, how do I apply a UV mapping in ZBrush? mean the UV tile, UV planar, settings among others?

1. the import / export buttons are under the tool menu

2. to assign uvs. once you have a poly3d mesh or an imported .obj, under the tool - texture menu you can assign GUV tiles or AUV tiles to your model before texturing.
