Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Installing the UV Master plug-in, part of ZBrush 4 Essential Training.
UV Master is a plug-in for ZBrush that you can download for free from…the Pixologic web site.…It creates UV maps for you by cutting up and flattening a 3D model.…Before we can use it, we have to install it because it's not part of the…main ZBrush software.…ZBrush needs to be closed in order to install plug-ins,…so make sure you do that first if you have that open.…Now let's go to the Internet and download the plug-in.…Go to pixologic.com.…Now we need to go into the ZBrush menu here and click Downloads.…
Now click ZBrush Plugins down at the bottom. And if you scroll down, you can see…that there's lots of plug-ins to choose from.…The one we want is UV Master.…Go ahead and choose your operating system.…I'm on a Mac, so I'll click this one, and I'm just going to save this file to the hard drive.…You want to make sure that you have some way to open zip files.…If you don't have a program for that already,…there are many free options to be found online. And I'll just right-click on…this, show it in finder, and we'll unzip it.…
