ZBrush 4R2 ZClassroom Movies. Updated to include 17 Movies.


We are currently finalizing the ZClassroom movie section for ZBrush 4R2. Although it will take some time before all ZClassroom movies are completed, we opted to share with you the movies as they are available.

The first movie is about Z4R2 capabilities to blend shaders and materials. Learning how to take advantage of this new feature and the other rendering enhancements will benefit you at all stages of creation, from the early concept to the final polished stage.

Enjoy, learn and experiment with these features.

sounds good, checking it out now. appreciate the efforts updating the classroom so soon. :+1:

I know lots of people only think about the mesh sculpting aspects of Zbrush, but I want to thank you for continuing to give attention to, and developing the material and rendering side of Zbrush. Please never stop.

I think more videos just on the shader mixer would be highly welcomed. Its more powerful than most users think. This video has only scratched the surface in terms of flexibility.

Great demo, i hope for more. :slight_smile:

you pixo-people are soo crazy!! WOW! :slight_smile:
the latest additions to zb-shaders are so cool for look-development - freaking crazy!
thanks a lot!


ps: mentalray and 3rd party renderer enthusiasts, don’t worry! just start thinking outside the box. :wink:

nicely done, i’ve just been going through the ‘whats new’ PDF and tweaking all of the new knobs, but this will certainly help!

New tutorials HOORAY :smiley:

That is crazy awesome! Thank you so much pixologic for this! :+1:small_orange_diamond:+1:

sweet!! :smiley:

Great, thanks, makes me to turn away from classic rendering :smiley:

this allows to paint specularity in a totally new way; as far as i am concerned, this feature (along with the fixed suv-issue) is exceeding my expectations by far; there is really no more compelling reason for a zbrush artist to render outside zbrush (except the 2.5d camera of course :wink: )

(still waiting for my upgrade mail)

Excellent, thanks :cool:

Great keep them coming…:+1:

All mails were sent , i think you’d need to contact support if you didn’t get one.

I am replying on my own post, as I just watched the video and love it, I prefer the these short discriptive video and this one is WOW…

Sitting back and waiting for the next one…

Thank you guys! These videos are always VERY helpful in getting up to speed quickly.

You work hard on them and I thank you for that.

Thanks Mr. Z! :+1:small_orange_diamond:+1:small_orange_diamond:+1:

very cool ! but do you plan to add a CC (closed captioning) system in your classroom video ? that would be very usefull for everyone who had some problem with english comprehension or still for these peoples who are deaf which it’s my case.

Many Thanks…:+1:

AMAZING!! Material blending was HUGE on my wish list. Thank you Pixologic!!!
