So I've been wondering why one should buy zBrush if you can do awesome shit in Sculptris ( https://youtu.be/OIgBVSwjdd0). Doing the retopology in 3dsmax and projecting normal maps from the original sculpture can make a pretty damn good lowpoly model for game engines and you still have it for portfolio piece. I know zBrush has a shitton of tools that Sculptris doesn't have but I wanna know your opinions on Sculptris since I'm pretty new to this 3D world.
>>511525why use a lesser tool?pixologic bought sculptris so they would have less competitors
>>511527So there's no big difference between the two?
>>511541Theres a huge difference. One is good and the other one sucks which is why they have it for free. Sculptris vs zbrush is equivalent to trying to cut a steak with the backside of the knife when the blade side is avaliabe to you
>>511525It would be impossible to do something like this in sculptris, but the dude can do it within hours within ZBrush. ZBrush provides lots of tools for speeding up your workflow and creating procedural and clean looking work.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dvCompIskoY

sculptris has no real support for background/reference images. which really is important when sculpting off a reference. that alone makes it unusable for me.
Its been a while since I used sculptris but, reasons why zbrush is betterpolygroups transpose masking and modifying dynamesh for merging geometry
>>511574>>511610Thanks, that's all I wanted know.
also all hard surface tools, like : cut, trim, group loops, panel loops, extruding, zmodeler, zremesher, uv master, transpose masterall those tools are really helpfull
>>511525Sculptris only increase triangular mesh, not quads which would be a shitty model to use.
>>511525Sculptris is a good beginner's program for sculpting but you'll eventually exhaust it's ability and want to move on to something with more features. It's a fun way to introduce yourself to sculpting. I used to enjoy playing with it when I was babby tier.
