    Default High Poly Model to Low Poly

    hi ,

    Challenge : To convert very detailed high poly model developed in Z brush with 1.32 Million points .

    1 .This model is not imported into Maya becuase maya can not afford that big model.
    2 . There is no Lower Sub division available for this model
    3 . Reconstruct subdivision does nothing/ has no effect on model

    Now how can you convert this model into low res model to get its workig in Maya

    can you post the model?

    or watch
    might help you out

    Few things to try also
    1. Enable UVS somtimes they disable
    2. Clear masks
    3. Zbrush 3 primitives are evil. (watch video for details)

    One other potential solution if you've got Zbrush2 is to take the model
    in there and try to reconstruct. I had a model that Z3 didn't want to
    reconstruct, but Z2 did.

    good luck!

    Re-topologize it with ZB's Retopo tools.

    Hi, what are you going to use your model for?
    If it is static Mesh, i reccomend to use Zremesher as khovasapian showed.
    Howewer in some kind of topology the resalt is not good enough, especially if you gonna to animate your model. Thay, maybe you should do retopology manually.
