In this series of ZBrush tutorials, we will discuss some of the methods for integrating FiberMesh with other applications. FiberMesh is a fantastic method of very quickly adding fur or hair to your ZBrush creations. There are a number of settings that will allow you to achieve the appropriate density and scale, as we well as settings to affect the shape, curvature, and twist of the fibers. These properties, in combination with the array of grooming brushes available, allow you to get very realistic results in a short span of time. Getting those fibers out of ZBrush and into another application in your pipeline may be more challenging. This course will cover some of the methods in ZBrush 4R3 of transferring the FiberMesh detail out of ZBrush. We'll talk about transferring our FiberMeshes as polygons. We'll also cover the ability to extract and recreate fiber detail using Vector Displacement Maps and we'll talk about saving our FiberMeshes as a series of curves that can be used as hair guides in a number of applications. Software required: ZBrush 4R3.

Introduction and Project Overview
[Autogenerated] Hello. I'm just some additional tutors on Autodesk authorized publisher and picks a logic authorized training provider. In this series of tutorials, we'll discuss some of the methods for integrating fiber meshes into other applications. Fiber Meesh is a fantastic method of very quickly adding for or hair to your Z brush creations that they remember of settings that will lying to achieve the appropriate density scale, as well as setting to effect the shape, curvature and twist of the fibers. At least properties in combination with the rib grooming brush is available, allowed to get very realistic results in a short span of time. Getting those fibers out of the brush into another application in your pipeline, maybe a little bit more challenging. This course will cover some of the methods and the brush for our three of transferring the fiber miche detail out of Ze Brush Song about transferring our fiber missions as polygons. Also cover the ability to extract and recreate fiber detail using vector displacement maps, and we'll talk about saving our fiber measures as a series of curves that can be used as hair guides in a number of applications. If you're interested in hair styling or in detailed fiber match functionality. I encourage you to search a training page where we have a number of solutions for you. So let's go ahead and get started by talking about exporting fiber measures.
