    This ZScript started with the intention of writing a basic timekeeper ZScript which can be used in Speed-Modeling sessions (such as this thread ). However, the ZTimeLapse plugin is capable of more than that, the ZTimeLapse script can keep track of the elapsed active-time - but more importantly - it will also periodically grab and store thumbnails representation of the ZBrush work area.
    In essence, this ZScript allows you to effortlessly produce a step-by-step pictorial representation of your ZBrush session via thumbnails. Needless to say, accompanying your ZBC posts with time-lapse images will be most appreciated by other ZBrush users who will gain new insights into your workflow and a better understanding of the steps which you have taken while creating your masterpiece!

    Installing ZTimeLapse
    Revision B, Windows and Macintosh

    Click here for Windows (.zip) version or here for Macintosh (.sit) version to download revison B.
    Extract the zip file and move the ZTimeLapse.zsc file and the ZTimeLapseData folder into the ZStartup/ZPlugs folder. Information about the creation and use of the ZStartup/ZPlugs folder is available in this FAQ.
    Launch ZBrush.
    If the above steps are executed properly, a new ZTimeLapse sub-palette will be added to the ZPlugin palette.

    February 4,2005: Revision A released for Windows
    February 6,2005: Revision B released for Macintosh and Windows.


    Using ZTimeLapse

    The script is quite simple to use...
    Click the ZTimeLapse button once to display the amount of active-time that has elapsed since the start of the recording.
    Double-click to save, pause or start a new recording.
    Post some of your time-lapse images in this thread


    Active-Time: This script will keep track of active-time, and idle-time (such as when you leave to have some coffee ) will be discarded.
    Tip: If you find yourself using this script frequently then you may want to CTRL-Click-and-drag the ZTimeLapse button to an easily accessible location within the ZBrush interface (i.e. the top-shelf floating-buttons area).

    I am planning to add more features to this script, if you encounter any difficulties with this plugin, please let me know.

    [Edit] marcus_civis has posted a ZScript timer in here. Thanks marcus_civis

    Awesome! I wonder if you can alter how often thumbnails are saved? That would be cool for animated gif's.

    Thanks for sharing Pix!
