Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Light Box, part of ZBrush 4 Essential Training.
Light Box is basically a media browser built into the ZBrush interface.…It allows you to search and load pictures, models, textures, and more into ZBrush.…It's an alternative to loading things in through the various separate menus…and palettes of ZBrush.…If Light Box isn't currently on, click the Light Box button at the top.…This turns it on and off.…So what we see here is a media browser.…There are buttons that take you to some of the built-in content, like Projects,…Tools, Textures, and so forth.…
You can just click and drag anywhere in here to scroll through and see…everything that's in this folder.…Double-clicking on any item will load it.…So, for example, if I go into the Tool section and double-click on Dog, it will…become the new active Ztool.…Clicking on images will load them into Spotlight.…I'll go more into depth into Spotlight in a later video, but it's basically an…image editing and painting tool.…I personally find Light Box to be clumsy and less useful than just opening media…the old-fashioned way, but some people like it.…
