    Default ZBrush 4R2 Beta Testing By: Mike Jensen

    Hey Everyone!

    First of all it's been such a pleasure to have been able to work with all these great new features! This release is game changing in more ways than one. Thanks Pixologic for such a great product and for allowing me to be apart of the process! =D

    Here's a comp using several render passes from R2. The new lighting systems and HDRI implementations are incredibly powerful!



    Here's a little tutorial showing the process for the render:



    The Insert Brushes compliment Dynamesh very well. Drawing the insert brush on a Dynamesh will simply add to it, however when you use the ALT brush you can cut away from the mesh. I created a few mechanical insert brushes I'd like to share with everyone:

    NOTE: I recommend when using these brushes that you have the Dynamesh resolution set to a higher resolution. Usually something above 450 works well. I consider these brushes to be more "finishing moves" to add the final detail to a model. Also play around with the polish feature of Dynamesh, as it will produce a very different result!

    I recorded the making of one of these brushes. Here's the video:



    More after the jump =)

    Here's a little timelapse of a concept sculpt for a mech. Dynamesh was used significantly to changes things a lot:




    Thanks!

    This is great stuff. I was wondering if you could use your techinque of creating shortcut key menus with the deformation controls worked in this version. In the last version if you exited the program it would lose all of the deformation controls you added to the shortcut since there was no way of saving it.
