ZBrush is smart enough to recognize when an imported model is the same as the…one that it currently has open.…It's going to compare the OBJ to this Z tool and see that it's got the exact…same geometry, but the UVs are different.…Then it will just apply the UVs from the OBJ to the Z tool.…So while we've got our dew hopper open here and the dew hopper is the current…practice sub-tool, we will just go ahead and import and bring in that OBJ that…
