Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Painting and texturing with Spotlight, part of ZBrush 4 Essential Training.
The ability to project 2D images onto 3D models has been in ZBrush for several…versions now, but with Spotlight the process has gotten easier than ever.…Let's get the DemoRhino ready for painting.…I am going to turn Colorize on in Polypaint, and I also want to subdivide the…model a few times by hitting Ctrl+D. This will give us more polygons and more…detail to work with.…Now, we can import an image to paint with through the Texture palette.…Let's go to Import, and I am going to find an image inside ZTextures, and we've…got some images that come with ZBrush. And I am just going to scroll down till I find image 4823.…
It doesn't have much to do with rhinos, but it's got a nice variation of color and texture.…Now we bring this into Spotlight by clicking on the texture again, and click…the Spotlight button.…The Light Box popped up, and it's just in the way, so I am going to kill that.…There's one weird thing you have to do before you start painting, and that's to…set the Spotlight Radius.…It's basically just a preview of what you're going to be seeing before you paint.…
