Zbrush Polypaint
show user profile  Spear Chuck
I'm having trouble understanding polypaint. Every time I try to change the color picker so I can use the brush the whole mesh adopts the matCap color even though the eyes are a different subtool.

How do I prevent or isolate one subtool so the MatCap is disabled on the eyeballs?

The body of the bunny needs a black nose and white teeth, they're in the same subtool, the eyes are separate as well as the fibermesh. HTH do I hold the MatCap just on the fibermesh and not effect the eyes?

The button would not activate. Even though the eye subtool is selected. The color changed to whole thing

Do the icons in the eye subtool do anything with paint? What's that brush button do in each subtool?

if subtools haven't been assigned a material they are "global" and respond to your current material/color.
As already mentioned you need to "fill object", then they'll stay what they were assigned.
The brush in the subtool list turns polypaint color on/off.

the eye icon turns the visibility of subtools on or off- if you click on the subtool you have selected you'll turn all the others off or on
the painbrush icon in the subtool turns on and off thecolour on that subtool if any is applied- same as tool> polypaint> colourise
by default all subtools are using the flat color material and coloured white
this may seem confusing until you select another material- the sculpt will display with that new material but it is just a 'preview' until the material is applied by (as mentioned by digs and octo) fill object with M selected
same thing with colour- it's default until something else replaces it- fill object with RGB selected

as to why you can't see the colour- you have colourise off in polypaint so it shows what you currently have selected in the colour picker (white the default so no colour) so just shows the matcap
use flat colour to see your texture clearly and use a material other than a matcap to paint on- something with a lowish specularity

Right now I'm on a tangent having to learn CAT for a client. So I'm using the Easter bunny with the matcap eyes to rig. If I ax some questions about that will you be ok with it since it has to do with Max?

I was drunk. So that's my excuse.

As for getting "bent out of shape" it's that pretty much every single question you have asked is absolute beginner stuff that has been asked and answered 1000000000000000 times and is unbelievably quick to search for and get the answer for within 2 seconds, which is annoying, because you're not even trying, you're just being unbelievably lazy. Nothing annoys me more than laziness, especially since I've been on the same learning path as you (as have many others here) and we all know this stuff is googleable. I try and only ask questions that are more specialised and harder to find. If I do find the answer before getting a reply I tend to slap myself on the head.

[edit] as for not liking you. Fuck, I don't even know you, you're just a name on the internet. If we're talking respect, yeah, it's low, but who gives a fuck, as I said, it's the internet, it's not a random guess that at least a handful of people here have little respect for me, I don't care. I care only about learning. P.S. Yes, I'm drunk again. But I tend to write better drunk, so no skin off my back, just tend to go on random tangents. Actually, I'm kinda pissed off tonight as I was being wingman for my friend and we saw this hot chick, I let him have dibs but she was clearly into me (and we're talking 11 out of 10), but my friend was drunk and needed fresh air so we went outside and 15 minutes later went back in but couldn't find her. Fuck. Never let an opportunity slip, even for 15 minutes. Oh well, there's porn I suppose, but that's a bit of a wank.

[edit] Oh yeah, just remembered, I hit on a princess tonight. Like, literally, a princess. There are tonnes of kings and shit in Malaysia, so it's not that bigger deal. But still... a princess. Full royalty. Just thought I'd brag about that since it probably won't happen again in my lifetime.

I hear ya and feel your pain.

Back in the 1980's I had a bird in the hand while at a bar and a buddy showed up just when I had to take a piss. I asked him to watch her for a minute and when I got back they were SMOOCHING! They spent the whole weekend together. She never checked back with her girlfriend. She called the cops thinking my friend had kidnapped her. My buddy said he should have married her instead of his ex. He tells that story every few months and it still pisses me off.

My brush with royalty was dating the president of Stetson University's daughter for a couple of years. I took a job out of state, met someone else and never saw her again.

I'm gonna drink a few to her right now

Why is white so hard to apply? I've colored the eyes but I can't seem to color the whites with anything other than the matcap color. It's as if the matcap is stronger than the application. Even on the teeth subtool when I use white it looks to be panted but it's the same color as the matcap
