formZ to ZBrush problem

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to export some object from formZ to ZBrush and am finding that other than the simplest of primitives I'm getting some very strange results... has anyone run across this before?

The shape I'm trying here is relatively simple, but ZBrush creates the most bizarre shape from it... have managed to export a simple cube, but that's about it...

formZ is 6.6.5 with Vray... ZBrush is 2019...

Tried a wide variety of settings in the import and the export, but am baffled...

Any help would be appreciated...

 

Thanks,

 

Douglas

I have also found that OBJ's will not open in Maya either... have also had problems with others opening OBJ's that I have sent them in Sketchup and Vectorworks... DWG exports of the same files will open in this programs...

Thanks,

Exploring this further...

Had a OBJ figure exported from Poser... OBJ from Poser imports into ZBrush fine... Imported the OBJ into formZ... Exported figure from formZ as OBJ... Import into ZBrush causes the same problem...

Thoughts?...

Try the following:

Plain Objects: Smooth: As Facetted (Instead of As Trimmed Surfaces)

Facetted (Instead of Parametric)

OBJ Options: Use Absolute Indices, turn that on

Many thanks... Use absolute indices seems to be the magic setting...

A few things to reset in ZBrush, but all seems well now...

Thank you...
