|creating creases ZBrush|
I have a model of this chair:
and I want to create the creases shown in the leather. I thought ZBrush would be good and quick to do this? However having never really used it, can some one point me to the right tools?
Also can I import my 3ds Max model in ZBrush and it will be OK with the polygon mesh?

Mask tool (ctrl+click)
Invert currently masked selection (ctrl+click in 3d space - off mesh)
Unmask all (ctrl+click drag in 3d space)
z intensity , (press 'U')
draw size, (press 'S')
focal shift (press 'O')
Press 'B' 'M' 'T' (Brush > Move > Topological),
*Useful for pulling the mesh over unmasked areas to create sagging areas or stretched/taut areas.
Press ('B' 'D' 'S') (Brush > 'Dam Standard')
*Creates a creased, pinched area while indenting the centre of the draw radius.
Press ('B' 'C' 'T') (Brush > Clay > Tubes)
*Handy for inflating/building up/adding volume to areas
Press ('B' 'C' 'B') (Brush > Clay > Build up)
*Injects clay into the mesh and adds volume.
Use Shift+Click to 'Smooth' out areas you've clay tubed.
Use Alt+Click to invert any operation. Eg, instead of cutting in, it will add and vice versa.
Play around with the Brush Alphas - can create some pretty useful scrapers and rake like brushes with a bit of ingenuity.
Using the 'B' > '#' > '#' hotkeys and familiarising yourself with them - you can jump to any Brush in a second.
Good luck? :)

As far as useful brushes for making a crease:
clay (sub) with alpha 36 or 37 (basically a sharp focus with soft falloff).
dam standard with soft intensity
pinch " " "
