Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Masking with Transpose, part of ZBrush 4 Essential Training.
Transpose is a trio of controls that allow you to pose, deform, and otherwise…alter the shape of models.…It's designed for bending limbs, resizing anatomy, and adjusting body proportions.…Let's open up the SuperAverageMan to have something to practice with.…You enter Transpose mode by clicking on any of these three Move, Scale, or Rotate buttons.…Transpose comes with its own way of masking that is turned on whenever one of…these Transpose modes is active.…Let's click the Move Transpose mode.…
These weird circles that we see now is part of the Transpose Manipulator.…I'll go into that in the next movie.…But for now, let's see how this special mode of masking works.…Hold down Ctrl like you would to normally paint a mask.…Now, click and drag on the model.…What we get is a mask that is created directionally.…Take a moment to create several masks to get used to how this works.…It kind of follows the structure of the mesh, as it divides a model into a…masked and unmasked portion.…
You can also add to this mask by holding down Ctrl and Alt as you click and drag.…
