Zbrush Memory
show user profile  Master_Soda
I recently started learning Zbrush 4, and it gets on my nerves quite a bit.
That thing runs out of memory when I am trying to save a file !
for some reason its set to use 256mb, I changed that several times already but the F***** thing keeps crashing.

Are you saving the tool or the project? How many millions of poly's is your model?

Advice: save as a tool (click on the save button near the top right). Also your model shouldn't normally require more than, say, 10 million poly's, unless you're doing something mega.

Will it conserve the lower subdlevels if I'll save it as a tool?

Zbrush can handle very high poly models if you spread the geometry throughout separate subtools. Saving out as a tool is definitely a good way to save memory, becareful not to save out extra tools in the "Tool Palette", I used to not realize that I was saving a ton of versions of my tool by accident up there.

Also, your undo history will create a massive file if you don't keep an eye on it.

You have to save the configuration after setting the memory higher.
I tend to save as both tool and project. First I save the tool. Then I save the project.
It crashes more rarely now.
