Go In Depth with...ZRemesher 3.0 - DetectEdges
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.

MAHpod Buggy - Fallout 4 Inspired Vehicle WIP
Just another work in progress. Started my 1000th hour of Fallout 4 and Picked this back up after Fallout 76 News. Nowhere near finished but thought I would share. ~MAH~

MAHworld: Return of the Zskiff-a-licious! ~MAH~
So, I have decided to start a new thread for myself with this new version of ZBrush (2018), I find that I am creating more than I have since I last Beta Tested for the company that I love so much. I find that, now, I have finally reached a level of creative freedom to nourish a new growth within my Artistic self and with Zbrush being the catalyst for such an extreme growth, I have not experienced since, as said, my last Beta test. I do have to credit Paul and his Titch Video for both inspiration and education. *Paul... I love you!* Because of his above video, I made this PauGab Ship WIP: *Aside from the obvious boolean, this is pure deformers with 'Project Primitives' mainlining.* I can't wait to keep exploring the 'Project Primitive Deformers.' Change My Life! Let the Journey Begin! ~MAH~

  • So, as I am diving into deformers, I have thought of a couple things. Slice deformer to have a cone that, when toggled, creates a polygroup (with or without a slice). A Global cone with deformers that have polygroups to add and include (when...

It's been a long time.
For the last five years I have been working part-time making little money and not having time for anything because of freelancing to stay afloat, equipment breakage, and even some health issues. But all is Great now! After two and a half years of working part-time graphics for the news (Two stations) with a national broadcasting group, The Promotions Department saw what I can do, stole me away from the news and made me full time with much more hours, benefits, and a great pay increase. I will finally be able to update equipment, by new software and equipment, like my Blue Yeti that I miss so much. With this promotion, I am now the Senior Graphics Producer for CBS4 & KFox14 and I am the only one of my kind with this type of job in our Company across the Nation! Super blessed!!! So, that being said, It's finally happening! I am Finally Going to Hollywood to see Pixologic, Gnomon School, and many ZBrush members for the first time in 15 years volunteering for the community! I have my first class tickets, my airbnb, and glowing happiness in me that has been waiting in the dark for for too long. ZBrush Summit, HERE I COME! What a dream come true!... and it's about damn time! ~MAH~ You can see a little of what I have been up too here!

  • Yes they do!!! And now, Don't forget to set a morph target first. Makes them work 10x better! =) Enjoy.

No, the standard Keyshot works. Check it out: All white HDR Environment. White BG & Floor (NO REFLECTIONS) White Diffuse Material on entire Model. Adjust Settings Gamma down. I use 0.7 Render Max Samples @ 256 and blend final render in PS with with Color plate setting blend mode to Multiply. Adj % opacity as you see fit. And By Color Plate, I mean the final rendered image you made in KS.

  • Thanks everyone! I will get on that right away! I'll put it for $0+. That way you can add your own price. $1, $5, $10, whatever. Cheers all and thanks for the love and support! ~MAH~

- Yeah that is exaclty what I am doing. I spent over an hour on the head band alone. Even after editing out the big mistakes and speeding it up to 200% (I work VERY SLOW) it is still over 20 Minutes and there is still the reast of the headphones to go. That is also mostly because I clean the mesh and consolidate polys and edgeloops that I don't need. It's gonna be great. I am excited to get these chaptered tuts to you all this weekend. To celebrate the new series and Z4R7, there is a special ZBrushers Only Sale on Gumroad! Thank you and See you soon! ~MAH~ DOWNLOAD NOW

Okay, so for the next video series, I am modeling a 1950's Koss Pro Kaa Headphone set with the new Zmodeler features. The tips and tricks of this include simplifying the mesh with masking and removing polys and edgeloops. Cleaning Split point operations as well as advanced Bridge Functions. This is gonna be Awesome! You won't believe what I have in store for you! There is much more with this new and exciting series! I think you're gonna enjoy this! =) Cheers, ~MAH~ PS - This is a ZBC Exclusive. I will not be sharing these developments with anyone else but this community until it is finalized! Thank you, and stay tuned! ~MAH~

Okay enough teasing. I'll get to work. I just wanted to test the same tool with AE and Element. Sorry, Keyshot. I love your realistic rendering but when it comes to bright and shiny with speed in animation (and just my understanding of it)... I'm going with AE. More goodies to play with. Gonna animate this for the video intro splash and something similar for the end splash. Thanks again everyone. Will be recording into the night.

Hey, Thanks for the help guys! Yeah, Clipping Brush on Unmasked geometry is what I did. Split on a point would add the geo to the model. Spherize to highlighted geo will transform it. Just make sure to drag the other way. You'll see what I mean. =) PS - Thanks Jovon! I;m so used to animating assets with Element 3D. Saving up to buy the upgrade. =)
