Two of the most important tools in ZBrushCore are the masking and the selection tools. In this video, see a brief introduction on masking techniques and the selection tools that will become evidently more useful as you start sculpting and detailing your creature.
- [Instructor] In order to have full control…over your sculpting process,…there are two indispensable tools that you need to know,…masking and selection tools.…Masking, for example, allows us to protect an area…that we don't want to affect while we're sculpting.…So let's look at the fingers.…If we try to move one, there is a portion…of the adjacent geometry that moves with it.…Right, so we can, of course, reduce the size of the brush,…like so, and that might look a little bit better,…but we could end up with a very uneven surface,…because of all the time that we have to move smaller areas.…
And here's where masking comes in handy.…In the same way that smooth brush lives in the shift key,…as we saw in the previous video,…the masking brush is mapped to your control key.…So if I press control,…you'll see that the thumbnail changes to the mask pen…and my mouse changes to yellow.…Let's change the brush size a little bit.…Now let's hold control and start masking…around one of the fingers.…The mask is indicated with a darker color…
