Im starting to learn how to use materials in Zbrush. I'm coming from a Myay/mental ray background. I was wondering if anyone can answer a-few things.
1st- I have a material set. i save it out. I fill my object with it. I close Zbrush then reopen it. Why aren't my saved materials loaded? Why are my objects being assigned new materials.
I then load my materials, but they reassign themselves to whatever objects as if I had never filled those objects with other materials. I then refill my objects with loaded material the way they should be. I then load another material. The saved material that I loaded first disapears and is replaced by what I just loaded in the materials menu. WTF? Why can't I get my materials back at startup automatically assigned and loaded like I saved them?
2ND How do I make more than 1 instance of a material with different settings in my materials menu?
here is what Im working on. I plan to have several different mat's on it in the end.
