Unhappy Zbrush UV to Maya problem. UVs don't wrap around properly.

Hello,

I've been trying to get my UVs from ZBrush into Maya for a while and I'm about ready to pull my hair out, haha.


This is what it looks like in ZBrush originally.




This is the process I use -

UV Master -

Work On Clone

Unwrap

Flatten/unflatten





Copy Uv, I go to my High Res sculpt, Paste UV, then Texture Map menu

New From Polypaint

Clone Texture

Export Bitmap

Then I load Maya and go into Hypershade, Metalray materials and make a new material, mib_illum_blinn

I set Ambience and Ambient to 0. Index of Refraction to 20.

Diffuse, load file, assign material to selection.

Then I get this...







I've no idea what has gone on. Can anyone help? I've tried flipping V and/or H but it doesn't seem to help.

Re:

It might be worth just remaking the UVs in Maya, then bring them back into zBrush as needed. I normally don't bother making UVs with zBrush because you can get a lot more control over making them in Maya. : )

You're just missing a step. you need to flip the texture vertically. All textures in Z-Brush are upside down.

Like the man says. Tick the "Flip V" (vertical) option in the map exporter palette.
