Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Using stencils, part of Mudbox 2013 Essential Training.
Stencils are similar to stamps, in that they're using photographs or images to…project detail onto a sculpture. However, they work a little bit differently.…It's like projecting an image onto the model and being able to sculpt that…detail right onto it. So we've got our tree exercise file open.…So if we wanted to get some bark onto this tree we could manually sculpt it by…hand, of course, but we're going to use a Stencil for this.…Let's open up the Stencils tab.…Now you do have some default stencils that come with Mudbox, but none of them…really have the tree bark texture that I'm looking for.…
So let's get a custom one going.…I've included one with the exercise files, so let's go to our Windows Explorer…and to our exercise files, Ch 2 > Stencils, and let's copy the treebark with…Ctrl+C, or Command+C, and now let's go into our custom Mudbox files,…Documents > Mudbox > version number > data > Stencils, and we'll just paste that in there.…The folder that you want to go to on a Mac is quite different.…
