06-26-2009, 01:39 PM
Hi everyone. I just installed Zbrush on my pc but I cant work well with it coz it has very horrible graphics, take a look of the picture of the sample head from zbrush. I dont know why my zbrush have a very choppy graphics unlike what I see from the pictures in the net.
I installed zbrush on my 2 GB RAM Dual Core Nvidia Geforce 8500GT. Is my specifications not enough or is there any setting in zbrush that I can tweak? I appreciate any help u can give thanks.

the problem is your using the "zoom" button to get a closer look at your model, the zoom button only zooms in on the actual document, you should be using the scale button which is right next to the rotate button, top buttons are for the doc, lower ones are for your tool, hope that helps

i started out with ZBrush on a system with a 7600GT video card @ 1360 x 768 resolution, 4 GB RAM, Windows XP32.

your screen capture is 1024 x 768 but the pixels are different. i'm pretty sure your 8500GT video card has just as much graphics horsepower as my 7600GT (admittedly, neither is a very powerful GPU).

well this one extra data point might be helpful. i'm not sure why ZBrush is rendering the object with so many 'jaggies' on your computer.

what happens when you change settings under 'Render' ? i think Preview is the default, Fast, Best, and Flat being the other options. how about toggling those settings to see what effect that has.
