Let's familiarize ourselves a little better with ZRemesher's DetectEdges functionality. In this Lesson example, we'll take a gear model that has a triangulated mesh with no PolyGroups or no mesh ID, but has edges to help utilize the DetectEdges function. Once DetectEdges is activated, we can convert our mesh to quad based geometry, create PolyGroups, and most importantly retain our clean or hard edges. This function can assist with future mesh editing including Dividing and sculpting or features that utilize PolyGroups.

the following download is obviously meant as a teaser and shameless plug for the ZB FunPack. It is however completely free and contains 3 matcaps, 3 alphas and 3 custom brushes from the full set. I hope you like them: demo.jpg It can be downloaded from: http://www.notone.ch/Zbrush.htm (demo link) kind regards

Skin Material
Hello, I've been using the RS Skin shader for quite some time now and it's really great. I was knocking around trying to alter it a little when I came across these great materials by HazardousArts on Deviant art: http://hazardousarts.deviantart.com/art/Xoliul-2-0-Skin-Shader-Settings-313915008 He used the program Xoliul to create them but they looked great. I ended up copying his image and replacing it over the skin texture on the RS Skin Shader and got this result. I have no background in matcap making and don't know what any of the buttons do, I simply stole from 2 artists and combined it, but it came out looking really nice so I wanted to share. Credit to the creator of RS_SkinBase and HazardousArts. Here's dropbox link: https://dl.orangedox.com/XL1oHmr5PDRzAzLqfs/HazardSkin.ZMT and an African version: https://dl.orangedox.com/2dEvTSFGaBxS4dha0n/HazardSkin_Afr.ZMT

@scottleroc Yeah maybe a sphere isn't the best way to show it off. Maybe this helps represent it a little better. Thanks for the kind words so far, glad to share. And thanks to everyone else for sharing.

Clay Matcap
Clayball matcap >>> First post on the forums. Clayball Matcap. The "Claytex" fingerprint alpha/texture was too big to upload but I posted it on my Tumblr, just google "Mosley Harmless Tumblr" and it's right there if you need it. Obviously you could use any texture you like, it doesn't have to be this particular one. The first image shows the surface > noise settings. The second one is just a quick BPR. Hope you like it.

Since a lot of people have been sending me PMs and e-mails for my old human skin material. I found it and updated it. To load the basic settings I have in the screenshot, in LightBox in the Project folder open DefaultWaxSphere. Load your textured model and then load the material. Only thing left to do is to turn on SSS and AOcclusion in Render Properties. Press BPR and you are ready to go. Download link: http://www.sendspace.com/file/uvhcq5 To Download press "Click here to start download form sendspace" button, not the big "Download" button.

Need this...
Hello. I'm looking for the TerraCottaClay Matcap used by Neville Page in his gnomon workshop video (as shown on the close up image). Someone can help. I'm also looking for the other Material posted by someone called "Taron" if I remember well on another forum. There is one here too but don't know if it's the same one. I espacially like the first two material on the left... If someone can provide me with this, it would be awsome. Thanks.

  • Teyon

    Taron is Taron. Same guy. As for Taron's mats and this TerraCotta - have you tried the sculptris forum? you can take the images they use for mats and apply them in ZBrush as materials. I think I saw TerraCotta there.

Here's another collection of mats that I've put together. These are for the ZBrush 3.2 Mac Version, which is the version they were created with. I was already fairly far along with creating these new mats when Scrybe mentioned here that the older ones I created don't work with R3. These probably won't either. I've tested them on my R3 version on my MacPro (running Windows in Bootcamp) and they crash it whenever I try to load any of them. I had already taken time to convert the previous collection to PC, but I guess they don't work again since R3 came out. In order to update both material collections to work with R3, I would have to recreate them all from scratch. It's a little time consuming to do that so it could be quite a while before I get to it. I apologize to PC users for that inconvenience. Note: The only true Matcap is the Smooth Sculpting Clay one. All the others are hybrid Matcaps/Procedural shaders. Experiment on the Mossy Stone and Distressed Stone mats with applying different neutral colors to your model. ***EDIT: UPDATED TO INCLUDE CONVERTED PC MATERIALS!*** Here's the link to the materials. Enjoy! Chris Tackett's Material Collection 2 (Mac Version) Chris Tackett's Material Collection 2 (PC Version) MatsThumb.jpg CTackettMaterials.jpg

I'll see what I can do to update those mats in the near future. And while I'm here talking about mats, I've also been spending a little time here and there on developing another full set of mats (some matcaps, some not) which look like other realistic metals, stones, clays and skins. Here's a quick preview of three of them, but there are several others in the set and are not quite done yet. I'll upload them all when they are done, which will be soon. They will be a mix of matcaps, quad shaders and tri shaders. Render.jpg

My matcaps are just sitting around on my computer not getting enough use these days. So, I figured it's high time I donated a few to the ZBC community. Hopefully, someone will get some good use out of them. Enjoy! (Hope these work with the latest PC version of ZBrush. They were created with earlier Mac versions.)
