Pixologic's ZBrush 3 stands at the forefront of digital 3D sculpting and 2.5D painting, a new medium that is taking the art and entertainment worlds by storm. Visual effects artist Eric Keller shares his expertise and talents in ZBrush 3 for Windows Essential Training. He presents the concepts behind digital sculpting, shows how to produce fantastic images using the unique ZBrush toolset and interface, and demonstrates the power of the Digital Clay and Sculpting brushes. To offer a richer understanding of the application, Eric gives a guided tour of the interface and addresses the most common problems experienced by new users. Exercise files accompany the course.
You might encounter this problem when you're first learning ZBrush and just getting used to the interface. I've decided that I want to pose my model using the Transpose tool. So I have my demo soldier model loaded in the canvas and I know to activate the Transpose tool I just need to click the Move, Scale or Rotate buttons. As you may anticipate when I do this I'm going to encounter a problem. So I click on Move and instead of the Transpose handle I get this strange looking tool. This is the Transform Gyro.
I can rotate the model and move it around. You can see he's actually interacting with the back of the canvas there. But I don't have my Transpose handles. The reason this occurred is I forgot that I need to be in Edit mode to make the Transpose tool active. So I'm going to switch back to Draw, turn on Edit, and I can see this border's here indicating Edit mode and my button is on. Now when I click Move I have my Transpose tool and I'm ready to start working with it.
