Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Recognizing and fixing common problems, part of ZBrush 4 Essential Training.
ZBrush includes a few particularly irritating bugs that either pop up all the…time or seem impossible to fix.…Luckily, I'm here to point out the traps and show you how to recover when you fall in.…Now I've got the Super Average Man loaded up and I did something special to it…to make it give me an error.…Let's say you want to subdivide this model.…So let's go into the Geometry sub-palette and we'll click Divide.…Sometimes you'll get this little error message that says, "A 3D Mesh with…Subdivision-history may be partially modified only while the lowest…subdivision level is active."…Now, actually the message and the given solution have nothing to do with the…problem or how to fix it.…
The real problem is that you either have something masked or hidden and you…didn't know about it.…So what you want to do is hit Ctrl+Shift+A to clear all your masks, and then…hold down Ctrl+Shift and click once in the canvas to bring back anything…that might be hidden.…ZBrush won't subdivide if anything is masked or hidden.…
