Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Trying different materials, part of ZBrush 4 Essential Training.
Materials affect the way that your model is seen on screen.…They simulate lighting, colors, reflectivity, and so on.…You can use them to see what the model would look like if it were made of other…kinds of substances.…Let's start by opening the built-in DemoRhino.…It's easier to see the effect of materials when a model has been subdivided to…a more smooth level.…Open up the Geometry sub-palette and click Divide a few times.…I am just going to click it up till subdivision level 4.…The way a model looks on screen is a combination of its material and its color.…
Right now, this rhino has a very dark color.…You can see it's the main color and it's a dark gray.…So this is darkening the default color of the material.…In order to see the material in its purest form, just drag here in the color…chooser up to white.…Now we see what the material looks like in its purest form.…Now we can click on this button.…It's the material chooser.…And what we see is an array of all these different materials that we can put on the rhino.…
