thanks for this great tutorial. Could you explain, what steps are necessary to create a normal map for a low poly model out of the imported zbrush model?

A really great tutorial. Having just worked out a similar procedure, it was good to read someone else's method. I managed to crash ZBrush a bit when I imported obj's with overlapping uv's (in the Create Displacement stage), so might be handy to metion the need to save often. I also used your mr accurate method, but set min subd's to 1 and max to 3. Renders very quickly, and on the models I was using, I couldn't see a significant (well ANY actually) reduction in quality. On subdivApprox I used Spatial.

Very good tutorials . need more

I havnt played much with Normal maps. to me, there is no need for it . Displacment map does the job, unless you are exporting your work to a game engine or something.

these parametres i came up with, was after testing the Displacment on the head supplied by Zbrush centeral
here are my tests
with but with subd's to 1 and max to 3. you loose some details
I even tried the Zatt MEL , wich is pretty good , but still u loose some details

there is a new method Im going to try , whic is the mi displace
I'll re-write some parts of the tutorial and add my results with the mi displace

thanks for everone
