Strange seams when importing UV at lowest level

Hi, I've a model of a statue that I need to texture. I've tried to export the lowest level of subdivision, assign Uv in 3dsmax and re-import it in Zbrush at the same level. In Max Uv are ok (even if I import back the obj model) but when I try to assign a map in Zbrush it seems like Uvs are not merged, every face has a seam. In the attachment you can see the effect. Can you help me? I've a deadline soon, so every advice will be appreciate. Thanks.

Are you using UVmaster..or something like GUVtiles? It looks like your displacement is bringing the seams out.

Try using UVmaster. It's easy to use and you can paint where you want your seams to go.

No,I started sculpting the statue in zbrush then I realized that the base mesh I used didn't have Uvs. So I exported the lowest level to Max and made the uvs here. Then I re-exported back the obj to Zbrush. But when I import it it says ""Mismatch point-order in the imported mesh was detected and auto-corrected". It is the same problem discussed in this post but I can't find the solution.
It must be something in the vertices order when I export the obj from Max.

not sure if this will help but select the polymesh star tool
then way at the bottom under tool>import set the weld to the highest 0.01
then import it then to make things work good in zbrush convert that import mesh to a too>polymesh 3d
then use the UV master on it.

from the link you posted it does not seam like the verts are not welded so tool>import set the weld to the highest 0.01

there may be a option in Max To weld points on export so all so check that
