ARTZY LINES is a mesh space non photo-realistic rendering plugin for ZBrush. This is a different approach than NPR filters inside ZBrush, it's almost real time and the lines are generated on the mesh surface. Some lines are view dependent and generated at every frame while others are consistent on the mesh and generated only as the user decides to update with the new settings . There are many different kinds of lines that can be generated and combined, and I have added independent control over every line type Threshold, width, color, opacity and many other attributes...
ARTZY LINES is released under the GPL license and therefore you can ask for a copy of the original code. Contact me at DargelosNezumi@gmail.com for more information.
Plugins in ZBrush don't need to be permanently installed in order to use them. Simply unzip ARTZY-LINES.zip 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.
This plugin doesn't work if you move it to the ZPlug64 folder. You should be able to run it from any other location. Sorry for the inconvenience.
ARTZY LINES can be used as stand alone outside ZBrush. You just need to drag a .ply or .obj file on top of the executables inside ArtzyData folder (NPR.exe or fastNPR.exe). The mesh file should be Located inside the Meshes folder.
Updated the plugin so it works with the ZBrush 2021.7.1 version. For older versions of Zbrush juat keep using ARTZY-OLD.
