Artist and 3D instructor Ryan Kittleson has released Ryan’s Tools 1.3, the latest update to his handy free ZBrush plugin. The update adds new controls for saving cameras when not working in Perspective mode, and for properly scaling brush sizes when working with very large or very small SubTools.
First released in 2018, Ryan’s Tools quickly found its way into many ZBrush artists’ toolsets. The plugin fixes a number of common niggles when sculpting or PolyPainting in ZBrush, providing more intuitive alternatives to some of the software’s native toolsets, and adding new utility tools.
New in 1.3: new primitives, better brush scaling, option to save cameras outside Perspective view. To that, Ryan’s Tools 1.3 adds three new primitives to EasyPrimitives, including a subdivided plane, intended as a base for creating vector displacement maps.
The update also makes it possible to save camera views from ZBrush 2019‘s Universal Camera system when not working in Perspective mode, and improves the way brush size scales to very large or very small models.
This free ZBrush plugin is available on a ‘pay what you think it’s worth’ basis: donating $1 gets you tech support, but you can donate more to express your appreciation for the work.
