    Default Re-topologize (Re-flow edges) Tutorial

    My students have been asking me to write a tutorial for the re-topologize feature in zbrush 3. Most have had a hard time following the tutorial on the Pixologic site. I came up with a step-by-step that most people will easily be able to follow. I thought I would share it with all of you.


    Here is the link:

    Here is a practical example of this workflow in action I did.

    Thank you for dumb-ifying this down for me! I love big white cartoon arrows...it speaks my language It would be neat if Pixologic could mirror host this somehow to keep from it ever being lost.


    Thanks again!

    JC, that would really look nice on the Topology and Flow Lab thread! You're invited to post it there, and I will make sure it can be found on the first post, which summarizes all workflows and techniques concerning the topology tool. This first post has been placed on the Zbrush Wiki as well.
    Great job, long live topology!
    Cheers,

    Default Thanks for the encouragement!

    Thanks to everyone for the quick and nice replies.

    Just to clarify... My big goofy arrows are meant to make it really obvious and easy to follow for everyone, especially for beginners. I just realized that some people may take that as talking down or making it for "dummies". I assure you that was not my intension. I wrote it how I would like to read a step-by-step.

    Also, I set it up in html so you can easily follow along with a two monitor setup.
