In this series of ZBrush tutorials, we will talk about a number of techniques you can use to speed up your ZBrush workflow. ZBrush is a powerful application but once you begin working with large models consisting of many subtools, the speed with which you can execute even simple tasks becomes even more important. In addition, each artist will often find different ways of setting up the interface or using tools that will enhance the particular way they like to work. This course goes over many of these workflow enhancements and interface options that you can use to speed up your workflow. Some of these may not save much time on their own, but depending on the frequency they're used, that time can really add up. We'll start by talking about customizing your interface so your tools and options are all easily accessible to you. We'll also cover changing the way the interface behaves and creating your own custom menus. Using and creating shortcuts will be covered as will placing assets for quick access when needed. We'll also cover some navigation tips, tips for dealing with subtools, and useful plugins like Subtool Master. We'll finish up by talking about automating tasks using macros. In the end you'll have a much better idea of your workflow optimization options in ZBrush and be able to set up your user experience so you can spend more of your time actually creating.
