For such a powerful program, Sculptris usually runs really well. However, sometimes it does have a few hiccups. In this video, I'll explain what the most common bugs are and how to work around them. Occasionally, I'll have a problem where Sculptris doesn't respond to any sculpting. This is a totally random issue, so I can't make it happen in order to demonstrate it. However, when it does happen, you'll find that you can still navigate around the model and you can still click on things. It's just that none of the brushes have an effect. You could be sculpting on it and nothing is happening.
In order to fix this, I'd just save what I'm working on and restart Sculptris. After a restart, everything should work like normal. A different but similar problem is that sometimes I can sculpt, but the pressure sensitivity stops working. On my Wacom Tablet, of course I can press lightly and I get a light effect, or I can press hard and get a more pronounced effect, but when this bug strikes, it's all just the same level of hardness. The solution is the same as before. Just save what you're working on and restart. The last common problem is that every once in a while, Sculptris just completely crashes.
Luckily, Sculptris automatically saves what you're working on every minute or so. When you start back up, you'll find that it automatically reloads the saved file, so you might only lose a minute or so of work. Basically, if Sculptris isn't behaving the way it should, save what you're doing and restart. I find that that usually fixes these problems, as well as any rarer issues that I've had.
