We’ve previously published an article about a cool ZBrush plugin called FJTools. This free collection of scripts from Florian Jonas significantly extends existing features of the tool. The thing is that the artist has recently released an update for the plugin, making it a lot more useful.
Here is an overview of the latest version from Florian:
Expert Mode — lets you hide the ZBrush panels according to your needs. Assigning a hotkey is strongly advised.
!Because ZBrush can only run one active plugin at a time, you will need to press your hotkey twice, if you have used another plugin.
RenameAll/PrefixToAll/SuffixToAll — all affect every Subtool, regardless of their visibility/Boolean Groups.
RenameVisible/PrefixToVisible/SuffixToVisible — only affect visible Subtools, regardless of their Boolean Groups.
RenameBGrp/PrefixToBGrp/SuffixToBGrp — only affect Subtools of the same Boolean Group, regardless of their visibility.
IsolatePrefix — only shows Subtools with the same prefix.
ShowButPrefix — hides Subtools sharing the same prefix, while unhiding all others.
ShowPrefix — unhides all Subtools with the same prefix.
HidePrefix — hides all Subtools with the same prefix.
SortPrefixToTop — lets you reorder scattered Subtools.
KeepTopmost-toggle — will prevent moving the first Subtool, since ZBrush stores the filename in it.
Hide/Unhide all Subtools — lets you quickly regain visibility of all your Subtools.
(Same as shift+click on a Subtool, but hotkey-able)
Sgl/Grp/Bgrp/Vis/All — select the method, with which color is applied (as polypaint) to the various Subtools.
Random — Generates a random color and applies it with the selected method.
Shuffle — Generates a random color for each subtool and applies it with the selected method.
User — Uses the current main color and applies it with the selected method.
