hey, i did got 42 for tangent in zbrush diagnostic tool, but when I actually generated map with the same, it was a wrong output, but 41 was exactly matching with the high poly mesh in my testing, I forgot to mention that, I tested on Clarisse 5.0, so I'm not sure if the number is different for older releases. please check your output with 41 and let me know if its working for you or not, also let me know which clarisse version you are on, so ill do my testing on the same.
