Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating morph targets, part of ZBrush 4 Essential Training.
A morph target is like a saved version of your model that you can revert to.…It records the positions of every vertex of your model and allows you to then…morph between that and any modified versions of the model.…Open up the DemoDog and expand the Morph Target sub-palette. Click on StoreMT.…This will save the shape of the model in its current state.…Now, get the Move brush out and just have some fun changing the overall shape of the dog.…I am going to hit B+M+B to switch to the Move tool and I am going to hit X…to turn on symmetry.…
Now click on the Switch button.…This will revert back to the state the model was in when you stored the morph target.…It's kind of like an undo that you can always jump back to.…Click Switch again to go back to the edited version.…You can also blend between the old and the new versions.…Slide the Morph slider up and watch the result.…This can be useful if you want to make an edit, but you are not sure how intense…of a change you want.…You can make extreme changes and then dial the effect back to get something that looks good.…
