Hello, I am new to Zbrush. i m having problem with UV in zbrush 3.5.
what happend is, i export my model with uv from maya to zb with obj. After i import in zb, i went to click auto group with uv in (polygroup) then i sepereate my models in subtool to get my individual pieces models. i click Divide in gemotry... then my UV start smoothing on edges... :(

i want my UV to stay same when i divide it.

is there anyway to fix this zbrush 3.5?

plz respnsed asap :(

They cant stay the same because zb is showing you the uvs of the divided mesh. If the uvs stayed the same you would get all sorts of weird things going on when painting. Subdivision with smt on will also change your mesh due to shrinkage as well.
