What's ZV Gui?
ZV Gui is a graphic engine that runs custom user interfaces for your character rigs.
It's a stand-alone application that connects to your Maya allowing you to do things like control selection, keyframe, show/hide, script execution and more...

Features include:
  • Free form buttons
  • Multi-control buttons
  • Attribute buttons
  • Custom script execution
  • Copy/paste/mirror pose
  • Reset pose
  • Paint-selectable buttons
  • Smooth-scrolling mouse navigation
  • Zoom with level of detail
  • View presets
  • Multi-namespace suport
  • GPU accelerated
  • Fully customizable!
ZV Gui comes together with ZV Gui Designer. This second application allows you to create and publish your GUI packages.
Check the videos to see how fast and easy is to create your own GUI!

Current version: 1.0.1

In the non-registered version you'll be able to create your GUIs and test them but you will not be able to use them in Maya.
Once you try to connect to Maya a dialog box should appear asking you to insert a license key.

If you like ZV Gui you can buy a license through PayPal for 49$.

The procedure is simple, you don't even need to have a PayPal account.
Once the transaction is complete you will receive within 24h an email containing your license key.

ZV Gui Designer
  • ZV Gui Designer is really easy to use, you can simply learn it just loading the gui sample below. But for those who like tutorials I'm going to publish one right here soon!

In this section I will be releasing demo guis you are free to explore in the Designer and play with in ZV Gui.


Known incompatibilities
No incompatibilities found
Full Vista/7/8 compatibility since version 1.0.1

Just run the connection test in the "ZV Gui Setup" application included in the installer before purchasing the product.
If the test is successfull you can be sure that ZV Gui will work properly in your system.

Version history
  • Connection problem fixed when running ZV Gui on Vista 64
  • First release

Any chance ZV Gui will run on Linux and Mac?
I'm sorry but it's not in my plans.

Is there a 64 bit version of XNA Framework?
No. The 64 bit version hasn't been released yet. Just install the 32 bit version, everything should work fine!

I've just run "ZV Gui Setup" to configure my Maya. Why does the connection test still fail?
This is due to two different reasons:
  1. You have an existing "userSetup.mel" file under "my documents\maya\VERSION\scripts". In this case click "Remove", then click "Manual" and select this folder instead of "my documents\maya\scripts".
  2. Your firewall is blocking port number 8965.
