One of the great things about ZBrushCentral is the incredible sense of community that we have. Not only are people happy to answer questions and help out newcomers, but many of you have gone above and beyond by providing free resources. In fact, so much free stuff has been given out that most of it is unknown – buried deep within the forum archives.
To remedy that, we have spent the last few months scanning through old posts to find the best of the best, gathering everything in one place and organizing the content for easy accessibility. Our first content compilation, the MatCap Library was a resounding success with literally hundreds of materials to choose from at the start and more added since.
But we haven’t stopped there! Today it is our pleasure to introduce the next major addition to the Download Center:
the Alpha Library
Organized just like the MatCap Library, the new Alpha section contains a huge number of grayscale images that are ready to be used in ZBrush. They can be applied to brushes, converted to stencils, made into masks, used for fog effects… and that’s just for starters! Alphas are one of the single most powerful tools in ZBrush, and thanks to the Alpha Library you’re sure to be able to find just what you need for any occasion.
While you’re there, be sure to also visit the other sections for MatCaps, Plugins, and Documentation. Come back often! We will be constantly adding new content to all the libraries.
