Mastering The UV Master
In-depth tutorial on how to use ZBrush UV Master
A full overview of the ZBrush UV Master Plugin
UV Master is probably one of the most frequently used ZBrush plugins, and this is for a good reason: it removes a great deal of technical processes, allowing you to spend more time in the creative realm. It is also the answer to how can I automate this tedious process of unwrapping 3D object?
I am a huge fan of the UV Master. We have shared a lot of moments, from epic crashes that destroy everything, to surprisingly near perfect UVs, with a single click. Fortunately, the “bad” moments are not as bad and are mostly due to easily, avoidable mistakes.
I created this guide to give you a broader understanding of what the UV Master can do for you as well as providing you with a simple workflow based on the things what have worked for me when creating UVs within ZBrush.
I hope that by explaining some key concepts and showing you my workflow, you’ll be able to leverage the full potential of the UV Master; Ultimately speeding up your workflow and allowing you more room for creative exploration.
Along with the ebook tutorial, you’ll find a series of resources that might be useful for you.
