Hi there,

My first voxel "something" :unsure: , exported and rendered in ZB.

Good work.
Reminds me of HR Giger works. Just missing a naked lady attached to the machinery somewhere. :)

Cool experimental design! :blink:
Others to come?

thank you :mellow:

artman, i have not received a PM. Maybe something went wrong with sending? I certainly hope that is not the last voxel doodle :)

Can you tell us more about what parts were done in 3DCoat and what parts in ZBrush ???

If is VOXEL based and made in 3DCoat ... how do you do the selections to add surfacing properties
such as color, specularity, etc .... after the fact.

Please give us more details on the whens and hows of your workflow.
We want to try it.

VERY COOL MODEL, BTW.

hmm...strange.Maybe I'm not allowed to send pms.
I was just asking if you would allow me to use one of your zb shaders in 3DC :unsure:
some are looking very nice in 3DCoat.

yes, of course. Thats fine :)

ggaliens, the mesh is from 3dcoat, directly exported as object. In Zbrush you can drop a model to the canvas and just paint your materials over it. Very fast and flexible, this is quite unique to Zbrush.

Right ... but surely you paint BEFORE you clone your object around into the
interesting layout you have ??? Else some painting efforts would be redundent,
right ??? I guess you did that cloning in ZBrush after painting one instance ???

Sorry ... I'm very cuirous. I don't have Zbrush.

;) the shape was done entirely in voxels too, using the voxtree option "apply axial symmetry". So in short i didnt paint anything in 3dcoat as i cant do UVs on the (NOT quadangulated) mesh. I just exported it to Zbrush with, cough, 5 mio polygons. There you can paint materials on your mesh based on polygons, of which you have enough with 5 mio polygons. Or you can directly paint on the canvas once you dropped your model onto it, hope that clarifies things a bit

and another voxel fun pic, got to fix the plant though :huh: BTW noticed i completely messed up the DOF on last pic, oh well it was late.

Cool little l scene here ! :blink: makes me want to try doing environment work in 3DCoat.
I also like the fun blue creature :)

I like what your doing especially that wall scene.

Thank you for the spline obs you posted.

tree321, youre welcome and thank you!
Andrew, thank you!
artman, thank you! I was just trying out the wall spline and got drawn away :rolleyes:

Im trying to do some workflow tests with Zbrush and XSI. For anyone interested i will summarize the steps and issues found in the process.

As a start I did a voxel sculpt with the tools supplied in the latest alpha v54.

drag_cs.jpg

Lessons learnt:
1) Try to keep different objects on their own layers with individual resolution settings. I made different layers for the eyes, horns, teeth and so on.
2) I tried to capture the overall form but no small details. This should faciliate the retopo. This will be the next step.

cool voxel sculpt are you going to bake a normal map onto the retopod mesh?

I also found that its wise to keep seperate object layers, for my winnie the pooh I had eyes on one layer and shirt on another and arm and leg on their own layers too

thank you GED! :) No, in fact I managed to get the high poly voxel details onto the quadrangulated mesh and export it with multiple levels. No normal maps yet.

I had full success quadrangulating all parts and reprojecting the voxel details onto it. I used quadrangulate standard settings (1 mio poly/ smooth:15). I had projection issues in 3dcoat with thin or complicated meshes (exploding verts/projection against internal parts). Im not sure if the problem is the projection or the autoUVs. However if I just export both low poly and raw voxel mesh I can do projection in Zbrush, which is painless. In fact it works like a charm in Zbrush, you just need to append the high poly mesh as subtool to the low poly one. Then subdivide the low poly and hit project all subtools et voila!
With more simple meshes its even faster, you can do quick UVs in 3DC or outside and merge to scene. Then export a high poly version and reconstruct subdivision in Zbrush, so you get the multiple subdivision levels back down to the quadrangulation level.

Ergo: Very convincing and fast transfer of voxel meshes (including multiple SD levels) to Zbrush is possbile. You only need to keep in mind to use different voxel layers for different voxel objects.

I have attached the lowest and highest Zbrush SD level as an image to illustrate things:

a turntable from the ZB sculpt, i probably will do some hair and a beard in 3DC as next.
