    Default The New Alpha Library -- In the Download Center

    Banner.jpg

    One of the great things about ZBrushCentral is the incredible sense of community that we have. Not only are people happy to answer questions and help out newcomers, but many of you have gone above and beyond by providing free resources. In fact, so much free stuff has been given out that most of it is unknown -- buried deep within the forum archives.

    To remedy that, we have spent the last few months scanning through old posts to find the best of the best, gathering everything in one place and organizing the content for easy accessibility. Our first content compilation, the MatCap Library was a resounding success with literally hundreds of materials to choose from at the start and more added since.

    But we haven't stopped there! Today it is our pleasure to introduce the next major addition to the Download Center:




    Organized just like the MatCap Library, the new Alpha section contains a huge number of grayscale images that are ready to be used in ZBrush. They can be applied to brushes, converted to stencils, made into masks, used for fog effects... and that's just for starters! Alphas are one of the single most powerful tools in ZBrush, and thanks to the Alpha Library you're sure to be able to find just what you need for any occasion.



    Library View





    While you're there, be sure to also visit the other sections for MatCaps, Plugins, and Documentation. Come back often! We will be constantly adding new content to all the libraries.


    Happy ZBrushing!

    downloading in packs would be nice.
    strange that there are no real fabric alphas.
    also i know i've seen many alphas on zcentral that are not in that library.

    Cool -- Many thanks!
    But I need to ask a question before I´m going to make a mistake:
    Which is the right folder for Alphas? Zstartup -> Alphas?
    And is there also a limit of 20-25?



    Edit: Well, after a short time of thinking I remember the Alpha+Texture Loader.
    Up to 250 images per tab...
    I´ll download this Plugin now.

    When I saw all these great Alphas I must have lost my sanity. *LOL*
    Hope one day I can download some extra wisdom, too!

    That's a great idea!
    Finally, an alpha library all gathered in ZBC!
    Thanks, really appreciate it!

    But agree with Spaceboy412, it'd be great to propose it in bulk download.

    Thanks for the alphas ,

    I have the same request "any ways to just download everything in 1 link", there are so many alphas in the library and it is tedious and boring to download individual alphas ,it kinda discouraging the purpose.

    I guess this is the same for the matcaps also. Hope to see a single download like for each category.
