Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a poseable mesh with ZRemsher, part of ZBrush: Modeling a Cartoon Character.
- [Instructor] The body of the character … right now is dynomeshed. … That means the entire surface … is made up of a lot of little polygons. … And this is fine for many purposes, … however, it does make it difficult … to lay out UVs for texturing … or to pose it. … What will work better … is if we have a lower resolution mesh … that can be subdivided to a higher density. … That way, you can pose a low resolution mesh … and also sculpt or paint finer details … in its higher subdivisions. … So let's take a look at the process. … Right now, if I hit Shift + F, … you can see we've got a lot of polygons … to work with, and we've also got it … split into polygroups. … And this is great. … The original primitives that we used … to create this model, … those polygroups have been inherited … by the dynomesh, which is really going to be helpful for us. … So let's go ahead and zremesh this, … and I want to work on a duplicate … because I want to keep the dynomeshed version around, … just in case I need to go back to it. …
