Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Switching to Smooth mode, part of ZBrush 4 Essential Training.
One of the most common brushes that you'll use is the Smooth brush. Because…of that, ZBrush has been optimized to make Smooth one of the easiest brushes to access.…Let's open up the exercise file for this movie.…Go up to File > Open, in Ch03, the smooth.ZPR file.…I just want to hide the Light Box so it's out of the way. So it never fails;…you've sculpted some beautiful forms on your model. But it's just too rough…looking. Not too worry, the Smooth brush is there for you.…The Smooth brush behaves a little differently from other brushes because you…can't just pick it from the list and start stroking with it.…
Click on the Brush button or hit B on the keyboard to bring up the Brush palette…and I'll show you what I mean.…Now find the Smooth brush and click on it.…I'm going to hit S to narrow the selection.…It's right here Smooth B. Now when I click on it I get this message, "The brush…will be selected as the sculpting smooth-brush.…Press the Shift key and then click to use it." What is that mean?…
