Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding brush settings, part of ZBrush 4 Essential Training.
Brushes are the things that you've used to sculpt and color your model.…They come in many varieties, but they all have some settings in common.…Let's open up the DemoDog to have something to work with.…So, for example, the size of the brush is shown on screen by the bigger red…circle around the cursor.…This is something that all brushes have in common.…You can change the size of the brush by moving the slider that says Draw Size.…You can also use the left and right brackets on the keyboard to grow and shrink…the brush size, but only if you're on a PC; sorry Mac people.…
The smaller red circle around the cursor is called the focal shift.…Put simply, it defines what kind of falloff the brush has.…If the inner circle is small, the effect of the brush is concentrated in the middle.…So I can make it really small.…You can see that most of the effect of the brush is happening in the middle.…If I make it very large, then the effect of the brush is going to be spread out…over most of the area of the brush.…
