Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Selecting and hiding parts of a tool, part of ZBrush 4 Essential Training.
There may be times when you only want to see a part of the model, or some parts…may be in the way of others and you want to make them disappear for a while.…ZBrush has a Selection function that makes this quick and easy.…Like many functions of ZBrush, its selection tools require the user to master…some complicated keyboard combinations.…With a little practice, however, you'll be a selecting and hiding ninja in no time.…Let's open up the SuperAverageMan project from the Spotlight.…Let's say that we just want to focus on the head and that the rest of the body…is just getting in the way right now.…
I'm going to move this down so we can get a better view of the head.…Now we can select the head by holding down the Ctrl and Shift keys.…Notice that when you hold these keys down that the Brush and Stroke icons change.…We're now in Selection mode.…Click and drag a box over the head.…The body disappears, leaving the head.…Hit the F key to focus in on the visible portion.…The body is still there; it's just invisible.…
