ZBrush Tilde Key For Seamless Texures. TUTORIAL – creating perfectly tiling meshes in Zbrush for use in videogame environments.

TUTORIAL – creating perfectly tiling meshes in Zbrush for use in videogame environments

Stage 1- create a height map in ZBRUSH - First create a Ztool, I created a simple beveled cube in maya, then stamped some shapes into it in Zbrush and saved it out as a tool. - Create a new document at the size of your intended map. - Load the tool in and start drawing them on the canvas, draw them in empty space but don’t go over the edge of the document. - Use the Tilde key(~ or @ if in the UK) to offset the canvas (hold it down and move the canvas so the centre is offset to the edges). - Fill the space in the middle. - Repeat until canvas is filled making sure no gaps are left.

Stage 2- apply heightmap to flat plane - Create “plane3d” and convert to polymesh. Creating Tileable Textures in ZBrush. ZBrush Tileable Textures 02 - Finishing Up.
