ZTree is a plugin for modelling 3D trees using ZSpheres. You will be able to add dozens of branches with a simple click. Copy and Paste, Trim, change the branch angles, variations, length or use L-System to easily create interesting and intricate ZSphere structures that wouldn't be possible to achieve adding ZSpheres one by one.
- ZTree Plugin.
- FiberMesh pre-sets for secondary branches and Leaves.
Plugins in ZBrush don't need to be permanently installed in order to use them. Simply unzip the zip file to your preferred folder and run the plugin from that location.Most likely ZBrush will be the app associated with the ZSC file extension so loading the plugin should be as simple as clicking on the ZSC file.
If ZBrush isn't open yet this action will launch ZBrush with the plugin loaded in the Plugin subpalette and ready to use for the session. You can also load scripts directly from the ZScript Sub Palette.To install the plugin so it's loaded every time ZBrush launches just move the ZTree.zsc file and the ZTreeData folder to "Your Installation Folder" \ ZBrush 2019 \ ZStartup \ ZPlugs64 \ .
ZTree2019 needs Microsoft VC++ redistributables. Chances are they are already installed in your PC but, if they are not, just unzip the included file VC++Redistributables.zip and run vc_redist.x64 to install the packages.
Warning for ZB 2019.
ZBrush 2019 has a bug in the COS and SIN functions. I made a FIX for this version but now the plugin isn't strictly ZScript based so it only works in Windows until I made the Mac version, the plugin file is ZTree2019.zsc.
If you are on a Mac you need to use the old version ZTree.zsc in ZBrush 2018 .
If you have already bought this product in GumRoad you shouldn't have to pay again for an update. Contact me and provide the E-Mail Address you used to purchase.
- I have added a pure ZScript version that can be used on Windows and MAC. Windows users won't notice any difference. I just tested it in ZBrush 2021 and it works!
- I have included a new version 2022 that works on Mac and Windows Machines. Added the old Coniferous AutoTree button. Notice that you can edit the .txt files to create new types of AutoTrees , they are inside the ZTreeData subfolder... I fixed a few Bugs and Added Continue Button. This will make easier to add ZSpheres Manually without having to switch between Add and Move.
