    Default DragMaster Plugin.

    This is a simple Plugin that simulates a Drag stroke given its length and direction.

    First, you need to assign a HotKey to the "Drag" button, then set the length and direction. Using the mouse (easier) or pen and using the assigned hotkey ( not a mouse click) you can very quickly produce steady regular strokes.

    I made it with the idea of helping with Insert Multimesh IMM brushes. Sometimes you need that every insert mesh has the same size, orientation or both (for screws or bolts for example). Later I started using it also with standard brushes and DragRect or simply with Dots to create straight lines.



    The LengthRn slider adds a random value to the stroke length and the DirectionRn adds a random angle. So Direction 90 would produce a vertical line and , if you add DirectionRn 20, the angle of every stroke will be between 90 and 110.

    MIMRandom switch. If pressed every stroke will insert a different mesh from the IMM brush, If not pressed it will always insert the selected.

    Variation Slider. Normaly you want to set this number to match the number of meshes of your IMM brush but , for example,, you might want to play with the first 5 meshes only so you would se this value to 4.

    Another great plug by dargelos !!! Very smart and useful !!!

    Did you see 4R7 presentation ? Maybe you could make this plugin repeat/simulate drag strokes using strokes from the inventory, I just woke up so I don't know if it's a good idea, as usual I speak anyway

    Keep doing such good plugins dargelos !!! Thanks a lot !!!

    Yes, I saw the videos on youtube LoL. I am inpatient to use the new ZBrush and these guys are incredibly funny.
    I saw they added the Repeat stroke dynamic (not sure how they called it) and Now you will be able to repeat the stroke all over your model. Very cool!
    I think you had a great idea. I will see if I can add that to this plugin. I might not be able to do it or need help...

    Like usual in ZBrush, CTRL+ALT+CLICK
    ZAdjustor Plugin for ZBrush : adjust Draw Size, Focal Shift and Z/RGB Intensity by simply moving your mouse/stylus while holding down a hotkey, just like in photoshop, mudbox, mari, maya... Many options.
    ZAdjustor0.92 for ZBrush 4R7/4R6 32bits OsX - (OSx version for ZB4R7 64bits coming soon)
