    Default Z3 experiments FUN FUN and yes FUN!!!!

    This was the easiest download and installment of all the different versions of Z I have dealt with in the past...KUDOS Pixologic team

    I am running it on my old machine still (P3) and it is working like a champ. Having to look a bit on the new UI but I still love it.

    First major fun has been using the alphas while sculpting......so so so easy...haven't delved any further yet, but I will (like everyone else) post my own results and experiments as I go along...

    thnx Pix and team once again,

    No, no Ron. Not, "Mentat sent you a PM a few days ago", but "Mentat, sent you a PM..." as in, I sent one to him. So you probably won't find one from Lonnie in your inbox. Sorry for the confusion.

    thnx Cal....yeah my brain is already turning to joyous mush.....but in a good way...


    I did have one problem. I am trying to rig a model. Crashed z a few times already. I am following the Rigging tut in the wiki, but when I go to shift to the high rez mesh the model goes to the level 6 but also goes back to the original spread eagle pose. And tips....here is what I mean..

    Thnx Moochie!

    Now this head is the first I have modeled in the new z3. (*a note for peeps, z3 doesn't like alot of z2 models, skinned or raw)

    Still was having problems with posing, and had no replies or answers to that dilema...so I did a head of course

    Not the greatest that is for sure..lol

    Have you tried the rigging with transpose or with an underlying Zsphere model?

    I find Transpose + Masking to be more effective atm, the Zsphere rigging seems a bit buggy.

    I like the new model , good work
