Pixologic, Inc., makers of the award-winning modeling, texturing and painting application, ZBrush, today announced the release of two new plug-in, Displacement Exporter and Multi-Displacement 2.
Displacement Exporter is a free plug-in for registered users that automates and enhances ZBrushs current displacement exporting abilities. It includes the ability to export out 8 bit, 16 bit, and 32 bit floating point grey-scale or RGB maps. It also includes the ability to convert your displacement map into a normal map and gives you full control over what you put in each channel of your file texture.
Multi-Displacement 2 enables you to generate 32-bit floating-point maps with real-world coordinates baked into the displacement map as well as generate multiple displacement maps for a model by using UV regions. 32-bit floating point maps provides the highest degree of fidelity between your ZBrush sculpt and your final render.
