Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Preparing, part of ZBrush: Modeling Footwear.
- [Ryan] While this is an intermediate level course, I'm going to show you every button and keystroke that I use, and explain everything I'm doing to make it easier to follow along, even if you're not very experienced with Zbrush. However, this is not an introduction to the tools. So, you'll probably want to be familiar with the basics of Zbrush before watching this course. If you need to get up to speed with the software, please watch my Zbrush essential training course on Lynda.com, or LinkedIn Learning. Beyond that, you'll probably want to use a Wacom tablet for sculpting. I recommend making a few changed to Wacom settings so that it works best with Zbrush.
So, whether you're on a Mac or a PC, just search for your Wacom tablet properties. When you've got that open, I recommend making sure that this is set to right click, and this is set to middle click. Also under mapping I recommend turning off Windows Ink, and I recommend turning on Forced Proportions. Alright, that's it. Let's get on with the rest of the course.
