Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the interface, part of ZBrush 4 Essential Training.
Like any software, ZBrush has an array of buttons, menus, and controls that…let you get work done.…First off, there is this thing called Light Box at the bottom of the screen.…I'm going to go more into depth in Light Box in other movies, but basically…it's a browser that lets you load in models, tools, textures, and more, from your computer.…However, it's just in the way right now, so I'm going to close it down with the…Light Box button up here.…At the top of the interface is the typical row of menu items that expand…when you click on them.…
On the left in the top are various controls for brushes, sculpting, color, and materials.…I'll go over these more in later videos.…This strip on the right-hand side has various controls that affect the way…you view the canvas.…I will cover these functions in the later video as well.…Because of the screen resolution that I'm using, some of the buttons…aren't visible right now.…One of the buttons, called Polyframe, I'll talk about in a later movie; the…others are less commonly used and won't be covered in this course.…
