Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video What is ZBrush?, part of ZBrush 4 Essential Training.
ZBrush is a great piece of software that allows you to create highly complex and…organic forms in ways that other programs can't.…Getting general 3D tasks done in Maya or 3ds Max is great, but when you need to…do some serious modeling, ZBrush is a great secondary program to turn to.…It allows you to make all kinds of sculptures and models with a high degree…of creative freedom.…Instead of worrying about extruding polygons in Maya, you can immediately start…sculpting in ZBrush.…This means that you can focus on being creative rather than tweaking vertices all day.…
You can then export models along with texture maps into game engines or any…other software for rigging, animation, or rendering.…First, ZBrush allows you to start with basic shapes that can easily be moved…around and adjusted without worrying about fine details.…Then those shapes can be refined and sculpted on with brushes that react naturally.…There's the ability to use photographs directly on the 3D model for painting or…adding surface texture.…
