Join Ryan Kittleson for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with subdivision levels, part of ZBrush 4 Essential Training.
Subdivision is a central feature of ZBrush that allows you to sculpt intricate…detail on your models.…It breaks down a polygon mesh into smaller and smaller polygons.…Depending on your computer's resources, you can have millions of polygons in a single model.…Let's open up the SuperAverageMan project.…So I just want to go into the Geometry sub-palette.…We can look at all of our subdivision settings here.…As it is, this model already has two subdivision levels.…We can just grab the slider to go through them.…You see that one is lower density and the other is a little bit higher.…
It's actually four times as dense.…You can also move up and down through your subdivision levels without going to this palette.…You can just hit Shift+D to go down or just hit D to go up a subdivision level.…Sometimes it can be helpful to turn on PolyFrame to see your polygons more easily.…Hit Shift+F to turn that on.…So now if I go down a subdivision level, you can see that more clearly.…I am going to turn PolyFrame off now,…
