We've made an update to the Download Center that's so HUGE, it needs its own announcement!
As you all know, MatCap materials have introduced a whole new dimension to working with ZBrush. They provide a super fast and easy way to create entirely new materials, or even copy surface properties from resource photographs. It's such a great feature that the community has gone, well, madcap with MatCap! Literally hundreds of materials have been created over the last couple of years and shared with the ZBC community.
But finding those materials has gotten to be something of a challenge. Wouldn't it be nice if they could be gathered together in one place? We sure thought so. And what better place for it than the new Download Center? After all, why should plugins have all the fun?
Click Here for the Library
The Download Center has a new tab called "Library". There you will find an easy to use browser that let's you choose a category and then click on thumbnails of any material that might catch your eye. The page will then show you what that material looks like on a sphere as well as a more complex model (courtesy of Magdalena Dadela -- "intervain" - Thank you ).
Each material shows who it was created by and has a handy download link. You can even browse the whole library as a slideshow.
This is just the beginning of our Library feature. More materials are going to be added over time. But we have some other great resources planned, as well. Stay tuned!
Many thanks to the ZBrushCentral community for having so generously shared such an assortment of amazing materials! This truly is a forum like no other.
