Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating texture maps, part of ZBrush 4 Essential Training.
All kinds of surface qualities can be extracted from the model and translated to…2D maps that are used in other applications.…Color of course is the easiest to understand.…There are other map types, like normal maps and displacement maps, that can…re-create falling details from the high subdivision levels and then make them…visible on a lower-resolution model.…Now let's open up the Texture Map sub-palette.…To make a color texture map, we are going to take the polypainting that already…exists on the model and transfer it to a 2D image based on the UV map.…
Let's click New From Polypaint.…The result we get is a low-detail map.…This is because the model is currently at a low subdivision level and the…texture map will only pick up whatever color is currently visible.…Let's go up to the highest subdivision level and try again.…One thing you might notice is that since we are on the highest subdivision level…we should be seeing all the fine detail, but we're not.…
That's because Texture Map is on.…Let's turn this off.…
