Join Eric Keller for an in-depth discussion in this video Can't control the pivot of the model, part of ZBrush 3 for Windows Essential Training.
When you are working with 3D models in ZBrush, as you rotate around the model,…there is a center to the rotation, and this is known as the model's pivot…point. Occasionally as you are working you can lose the position of that pivot…point or you may encounter strange behavior, where you are rotating the objects…and its not rotating in the way that you would expect.…Well, you can actually adjust the position of the pivot point using the Preview…window here in the Tool palette. This is a little 3D Preview that shows the axis…of the model. This will show you that this plane is perpendicular to the Z axis…of the model, and this red cross represents the pivot point. I can move it by…clicking and dragging on it.…
Notice that when I do that I'm actually changing the pivot point for the tool,…but not necessarily the subtools. The eyeballs are floating in space because I…have changed the pivot point of the tool but not the subtools. So this is…relative to the position for all the other subtools.…If I want to store this position, I can click on the Store button. Restore,…
