Thanks for the great Video tutorials.I'm still having problems with displacement in Mental Ray even though I followed the cliff tutorial religiously.Even using Maya Software I don't seem to be getting any displacement happening.The renders look just the same as putting a smooth on the mesh.Any idea what might be happening.I have attached pictures of my attempts and the message from Maya's output window.Though this is a tiff file I did try a converted .map file . I got a bloated dislplacement and then after adjusting Alpha gain I got back to where I started-i.e no displacement.

can you post a screen shot of your displacement map settings? Particularly the color balance settings. I might be able to help as I have messed with those a bunch in an effort to get good settings.
do you have GoZ yet? I think that is available in the latest version of Zbrush that feature has made it really easy to move between ZB and Maya with good displacement settings.
custom menu in 3.5
I was just watching the custom menu video (post#142) and for some reason I cant get it to work in 3.5.
When I ctrl click on my new menu to set the hotkey it brings up a prompt saying "press any key comb to assign a hotkey", but when I right click to assign that menu to the RMB it cancels the operation.
Anyone had any luck with replacing the right click menu in 3.5? or even better yet can I edit the default menu?
Thanks for the reply ilmostrog.Here is a screenshot of my displacement map settings.
No I haven't got Go z yet.I think it's only available for macs at the moment and I have a PC.Should be good though when the windows version comes out.I'm hoping that a lot of these displacement issues will then dissappear!

success with Mental Ray
At last I seem to have cracked it with Mental Ray.I had not taken account of the tweeks needed for Maya 2008.After reading Scott Spencers post and using the script here is what I got.
apologies for not responding sooner, I didn't see the image file posted but it does look like you have it solved. What did you end up doing? I am curious to know as I haven't had much luck with displacement maps in maya other than with GoZ
No need to apologise ilmostrog.The problem I was having was bloating when I rendered in Mental ray with maya 2008.The solution was to download the script from Scott Spencers post.This fixed the bloating and the seams.Here is the link to the tutorial I followed if your interested.http://www.zbrushcentral.com/zbc/sho...433#post429433

Questions about zspheres
I would like to make a question about zspheres.
Once a time i have loaded a zsphere and put the spheres exactly on the model. and wen i pressed the shortcut "a", the zsphere appeared whith the format of the model, but with the level 1, as a retopology.
I do not know how it happened, and i cant not find anywere that explains something like this
I dont know if i was clear.
Thanks for your attention!
would be great if the zbrush had the autosave feature for projects!
Hi Hugo ap,
My understanding is that pressing the shortcut ''a'' gives you a preview of the mesh from the z-spheres you have created.If you want to see your Z-spheres again press a and they re-appear.I hope that I understood your question and that helps.
That is the question, in this case (when I put the zspheres over the object)instead of appearing the preview mesh, she automatically became the object that i was modeling.
That was incredible, but I don´t know how it happening.
Can you put some images up please. I am not sure of the issue that you speak of.
It´s something like this:
