View Full Version : Zbrush to 3Dsmax - Texture Map Coordinates screwed

02-09-2006, 05:17 PM

I've made an model on Zbrush, and then painted some RGB colours over the texture. Then Ive clicked on Unified Skin (under tools pallete). After all that ive exported the model as an obj to max, and the texture as a .bmp. I happens that the coordinates on max are all wrong, why?!

What is the correct workflow in Zbrush->Max?

Hi, you have to flip the texture in V direction.

Thanks dude! That did the trick. But now I have another problem: The texture has seems in 3Dsmax, what could it be?

The default HEIDI graphics software driver doesn't like imported maps larger than 512 x 512. To fix this go to the CUSTOMISE > PREFERANCES menu in Max, click on the CONFIGURE DRIVER. Click MATCH BITMAP SIZE AS CLOSELY AS POSSIBLE.
Once your've done this you wont have to do it again for any more ZB models! You might have to reapply the bitmap from the material editor one more time.
Upham :)
