ZBrush 4 for Lightwave Users-Normal Maps


In this videos series we show 3D students how to use ZBrush 4 and Lightwave 3D together as an easy and functional workflow and pipeline in your 3D projects. Although this video series uses Lightwave 3D as the final output for your ZBrush work, most of the concepts, principles and techniques used here will work with all the most popular 3D programs like 3D Max, Maya, Softimage, Modo, Cinema 4D and many others.

In this video tutorial ZBrush/Lightwave Instructor Adam Gibson shows how to use ZBrush to create high detail sculpting on a Velociraptor dinosaur that is exported as a Normal Map for use inside of Lightwave 3D.
