Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Activating symmetry, part of ZBrush 4 Essential Training.
The ability to edit and sculpt your model symmetrically is one of the most…commonly used features of ZBrush.…It allows you to make the same changes to both halves of your model at the same time.…Let's open up the SuperAverageMan Zproject to have something to work with.…By default, symmetry is turned off.…So let me make this brush a little bit smaller to make it easier to see.…And if I do any changes to one half of this model, you can see that nothing is…happening to the other side.…Let me just undo this by hitting Ctrl+Z. Now I want to hit X on the keyboard.…
This is going to turn on symmetry.…So you can see there is another little dot on the other side that mirrors…exactly where my cursor is.…Any edits I make to the model I now duplicated on the other side.…There are some options that we can set for symmetry up in the Transform menu.…So you can see it's activated right here.…You can also turn it on or off right here.…You can change which axis is being mirrored over.…So right now it's the X axis.…
